Default Signed up for Amazon Prime 1 month free trial and now I cant stop buying movies!

I signed up for the free month of amazon prime (free 2 day shipping on all orders even small items/low price) and now I cant stop ordering movies!

I have ordered Pans Labrynth
Pre ordered Zodiac
and I just saw Casablanca and I couldnt help but click order!

knowing I get free 2 day shipping and can order with one click is going to bankrupt me! on the bright side tho that is three new HD DVD purchases for the cause.

I had the same problem. I bought more stuff on Amazon during the year I had prime than I did the 5 years prior altogether. Pity they don't offer discounted renewals. I let it expire back in November

You won't regret either of those three purchases.

I know Zodiac will look great on HD DVD, although I haven't seen it yet.

Casablanca looks beautiful. The sound is crisp and it's loaded with tons of extra features.

Pan's Labyrinth is also one of my favorite HD DVDs, as well as one of the movies in my top 5. And it has a 7.1 track.

I suggest you also pick up these movies as well:
Grand Prix
The Adventures of Robin Hood
Forbidden Planet
Enter The Dragon
What Dreams May Come

And there are many others that I can suggest to you, if you want me to.

Welcome to the club. I've been a Prime member for about 19 months and have placed a couple of hundred orders during this time. I ordered four movies from their Blu-ray bogo Friday and the 10% discount was applied. Take advantage of this while you can. Perhaps Amazon extended this deal, IDK. Anyway, I know where you are comming from with this buying addiction, it is so easy. I sometimes feel like I am taking advantage of Amazon with all of the orders that I've placed.

Amazon Prime seems a good idea.

But I think it wouldn't really make sense for me.

I order most of my movies/games/books from Amazon.Co.Uk and Amazon.De and both of them do have 2 day free shipping naturaly. The Prime option on Amazon Germany however would give me 24 hour at max shipping. If you place an order before 6 clock in the evening it usually arrives at 00:00 the same night.
