So that's a no. When you are old enough for an after school job, you might learn of the concept of a lossleader.

I must remember who I'm dealing with. :P

Just remember next time you open your mouth to have something useful to say and who knows you might even get some real replies.

Negative rain checks AFAIK will ask when I'm in tomorrow mate, anything you're looking for specifically mate as I could possibly pick up for you if you like

This is what I'd be thinking,except that you'd think they would have a more mainstream offer to get the masses in.

Yeah, I doubt BD has anything like the profile to be a 'lossleader'.

More likely that BigW made a bulk buy - ie lower wholesale cost - so then can offer at lower retail. There is a reason Amazon can offer the prices they do. ;)

It's not like prices have dropped dramatically anyway - 300 opened at a $35 cost and I picked up 'Last Samurai' for $28 at BigW the other day (so that's actually higher priced in the 'sale').

Just popped into Big W in Melbourne City.

The prices of the DVD's in stock were $29 but they really only had a couple of titles. The guy went out and looked for other titles for me but claimed they were still waiting on stock. I have a feeling he was full of sh!t, but what can you do?

Same with Bigw at Epping they had a few titles such as

Rocky B

PTOC: DMC

Fantastic 4

Hart's War

MI:3

Last Samurai

POTC: TCOTBP

Reign of Fire

I will check out BigW at around lunchtime tomorrow.

Doubt it. As I mentioned yesterday, JB on Elizabeth Street (Melbourne) refused to match Big W just up the road at QV.

They had bugger all titles at our Big W yesterday, I asked them about 300 and they said try again on Friday, they should get some in stock.

On the matter of cost price of movies - you can choose to believe me or not, I'm not going to say how or why I know this, but different titles have different wholesale prices (obviously), and some do wholesale for over $30 (mostly newer titles), whilst a lot of older titles (by theatrical release date) are under $30.

For 300 it is more than likely selling at below cost, unless Big W got some awesome deal with the distributor...

Mr Fish, I have just come back from BigW Epping and grab a few discs from them, they do have most of the titles that have been advertised for $29.48 but except sadly 300 and Departed. But when I was there around 12:00 the shop assistances were still unpacking some of the titles such as Shooter and Ghost Rider. Most of the titles are $29.48 except Guardian. If you are POTC fan you'd better be quick because there are about two each left. I asked about 300 and they said they have not seen it and they still have a lot of stuff that haven't been unpacked. Look like Big W Epping is well prepare for this sale.

Cool, thanks a lot of the updates mate!

Unfortunately, I am actually after only 3 titles: 300, departed, and shooter :P

Well, maybe just getting the shooter first...

Well I picked up one film and the other that was supposed to be on hold for me was sold :blink: not happy. And the JB next door to that Big W also refused to price match.

they are treading a dangerous path with the ACC ie advertising heavily in a catalogue and not having stock the accc loves big retailers, only takes one complaint. I remember at Coles Myer we got a few fines.

By the way, this is only a 25 day promotion so stocks are likely to be limited which might be a cause for complaint to the ACC.

just got back from big w southland and they had everything. i picked up Reign of Fire and Deja Vu. then went around the corner to EzyDVD and they price matched not only the big w listed titles but EVERY Blu-Ray title in stock. so i couldn't help myself and picked up Monster House (for momaw), The Rock, Enemy Of The State and Hellboy (for yorac). then i decided to push my luck and asked if they would match the Sanity offer on HD-DVD of 2 for $50, she also said yesso i grabbed Mummy and Mummy Returns.

i had a good day

PS: She was a top sort as well
