When I first started writing this site I intended not only to point the direction to great entertainment that you might miss but to provide some information on bargains that might occur in the market place. I think I’ve done pretty well with the first goal but have shirked the latter. I’ll try to do better on that during 2016, starting here with some info on some terrific Blu-ray and HD buys.
Walmart’s connection with Vudu has already resulted in some deals offering free movie tickets and discounts but the latest has to take the cake as a supreme money-saving deal. Certain Blu-ray discs have been priced at $4.99. Now most of them are “B” titles like Man on a Ledge, but there are some great “A” titles there like Brothers and The Hurt Locker. They all have a Vudu sticker proclaiming a $10 credit on Vudu. That’s right, a credit, no specific title required. Now Vudu is one of the best streaming services out there. You can get HDX quality and I’ve never had a blip or interruption when viewing. Also, their prices are not always high. Classics, in particular, can be $9.95 or under. So if you buy one of the Blu-ray titles you can own something like the Marlin Brando-James Mason Julius Caesar on Vudu and still have credit left. So even if you don’t like the Blu-ray you bought that much, you can look at it as a $10 Vudu credit for $5! The $4.99 Blu-rays were not in the entertainment section of my store but in a display near the check out.
