Default U.K. Amazon's Bourne Trilogy and Buy 2 Get 1 Free

They have nearly 300 titles in their Buy 2 get 1 free sale.

On top of that, Sin City 2 Disc Extended Edition, which is region free, is well less than $20.

And the Bourne Trilogy, also region free, is only $48.

I'm sure most of you already know about ordering from Amazon UK, but heres a few notes for those who don't.

1)Although Europe is Region B, as oppose to the U.S. being Region A, many many discs are region free. Go to www.blurayregioncodes.com to make sure a disc is region free.
2.)You might want to google "currency conversion" to find an easy site to convert Pounds into Dollars.

Thumbs down

Well, that was a waste of my time!

The Bourne Trilogy is not $48 as you posted. The UK edition is a preorder for 32.99 pounds, which at the current exchange rate is $54.27 USD. Add the shipping to that and it goes over $60.

The single movies are $19.71 a piece, so your price wasn't buying them seperately either.

Your wrong. Take out VAT and the Trilogy is 28.69 pounds which is around $45. Add in shipping, it is 31.77 total which is about $50 total.

Yup, if you arent in Europe, you dont pay the VAT, so you would deduct that from your total. Also, remember, the exchange rate fluctuates all the time, so what may be $48 right now, could be $55 tomorrow or even less than $48.

Wow, way to shoot the messenger before you actually do the math.

If you're in the US, and the Blu is shipped from Amazon UK (not the "preferred merchant"), Amazon UK removes the V.A.T. from the price; which drops this set down to 28.70, then with 3.08 shipping yields a grand total of 31.78, which is ~$50.45 USD... which to your point, isn't $48 with XE.com's currency conversion, but still a solid deal if you're so inclined.

Sorry for the repost... Mark and his stealth like quickness beat me to the punch.

Are you sure the Ultimate Bourne Collection is region free? If you click on the individual movies, it says they are region 2 and the collection is not listed on blurayregioncodes.com

The Bourne Collection French release is Region Free and is also 33.44 Euro AKA $46.85 US and is known to be region free. Plus I like the French cover a lot better than the US! If anyone is interested in this I am thinking about trying to put together a small group buy to save on shipping so PM me.

I've read over at AVS that it will be region free.

The only reason it is not listed on BlurayRegionCodes.com is because it is not out yet.

You cannot trust Amazon when it comes to region coding. After all, they use Region 2, LOL, IF ANYTHING, it would be Region B. Amazon UK has a history of saying Blurays are in the PAL format or Region 2, both of which are strictly DVD criteria, not Bluray.
