Lightning Deals: 30 Rock, Heroes, The Dark Knight, Watchmen

The Dark Knight Blu-ray BatpodEvery day, Amazon offers up “Lightning Deals,” limited quantities of various products for a discounted price for a 4-hour window of time. You have to be on the lookout for these deals and once the item runs out within that four hours, the sale is over. Meaning, if you see something on sale that you want, buy it immediately before it’s gone.

Typically you don’t know what will be on sale until the minute it gets posted, but as part of their Holiday event, Amazon has released this week’s Lightning Deal schedule for Movies & TV on DVD and Blu-ray. See below for a list of today’s deals — which begin at 8:30am PST and run through 9:30pm PST — along with more information on how these special deals work. The last deal goes up at 5:30pm PST.

There’s also TONS of extremely low prices and great deals on DVDs and Blu-rays right now, so visit the TOP HOLIDAY DEALS page to see the wide selection.

Also, Amazon’s Blu-ray box set deal of the week is the Glee: The Complete First Season Blu-ray Edition for only $34.99 (that’s 50% off the list price of $69.99). The TV Deal of the Week is Married…with Children: The Complete Series DVD box set for only $116.99 (that’s 53% off the list price of $250.95). Both deals are valid only for this week through December 18, 2010.

Note – the discounted price won’t appear on the product page, you have to put it in your cart and check out to see the sale price (there should also be a button at the top right that says Lightening Deal that will show the main LD page).

Per Amazon:

Lightning Deals have a limited quantity at the prices listed below, so it helps to move quickly if you see something you like. You now have a limited time to purchase a Lightning Deal after it has been added to your Cart. After you add the deal to your Cart, you will have 15 minutes to make the purchase. You will be notified by an alert that will display in the upper right-hand corner of the page when you have 10 minutes remaining to make your purchase. You must check out within this timeframe to receive your promotional discount.

If you have not purchased the deal before the time runs out, the discount will no longer apply to the product in your Cart and will be available to other customers who are interested in the deal. If quantities run out, you may apply to be waitlisted for that item.


  1. you have the prices wrong, Watchmen –> 14.99, not Alice in Wonderland

  3. no wait they are today! The list says December 15th. You should fix that because I almost over looked this, and these are good deals.

  4. Ok, it’s fixed on the post (it was correct in the excerpt and the feed, so that was very strange). Also, I fixed the price (I had written this before all the final prices went live).

  5. The Watchmen Blu-ray sold out in under 5 minutes. Probably some jerk that owns a comic/ebay store bought hundreds.
