Now that Black Friday week is over, Amazon is moving on to Cyber Monday deals week with new Lightning Deals, limited quantities of various products for a discounted price for a 4-hour window of time. Once the item runs out, the sale is over – meaning, if you see something on sale that you want, buy it immediately before it’s gone (it could run out in minutes!).
Amazon has released the Lightning Deal schedule and prices for Music CDs and Box Sets for Monday, November 28, starting at 5AM PST (that’s 8AM EST) and running through 9pm PST. See a sample of some of the Cyber Monday deals here below, along with more information on how these special deals work. You can visit the main Sale calendar page to see ALL the deals and the exact times they’ll be going up.
U2: The Unforgettable Fire (Super Deluxe Edition 2CD+DVD) $25.99
On Friday night, the Foo Fighters played a show at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Missouri, and on hand to show their own special brand of support were members of the infamous Westboro Baptist Church, who brought out their trusty signs and hate-filled chants to express their umbrage at any person, group, or organization that doesn’t share their black-hearted hostility towards homosexuals. In their own puckish manner, the Foos decided to show their appreciation for the Westboro group’s venom by putting on a special concert just for them. They filmed the performance and their preparation and you can watch the video of it all here below.
The MP3 album deal of the day over at Amazon today is Foo FightersGreatest Hits for only $3.99.
Note, this deal is only for today, Friday, April 1, 2011, until midnight PST.
This 17-song collection from Foo Fighters features an exclusive track, a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Have a Cigar,” not sold anywhere else.
The album contains hits like “Everlong,” “Learn To Fly,” “My Hero,” “Monkey Wrench,” and “Breakout.”
Math time: The songs on this album typically sell for $.99 – $1.29 each and I just named five songs worth having, which right there justifies the cost. If you’re already a fan of the Foo Fighters, then this is a great chance to grab this collection for a severely discounted price and also get the exclusive track; if you’re not familiar with the band, which is fronted by former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl, then this is the perfect opportunity to check them out.
