Amazon Offers New 3-For-2 Deal on Blu-ray, HD DVD Discs

Posted Tue Feb 12, 2008 at 12:00 PM PST

Yet another high-def disc deal to report. This time, Amazon is offering a free Blu-ray or HD DVD disc with the purchase of two others.

The promotion started this morning and can be applied to a list of over a hundred titles on either format. Among the Blu-ray titles included are 'Pan's Labyrinth,' 'War' and 'Casino Royale' (click for complete list of eligible Blu-ray titles). The HD DVD selection includes 'Batman Begins,' 'The Complete Matrix Trilogy,' and 'The Shining' (click for complete list of eligible HD DVD titles.)

At press time it wasn't clear how long Amazon would be extending this offer, but the promotion text that accompanies the offer warns that supplies are limited.

As we've previously reported, Amazon is also offering 50% off a different set of 150 HD DVD titles (from Paramount, Universal and Warner) as part of a separate promotion that kicked off last week.

To discuss these and other next-gen hardware and software deals, visit the Blu-ray Bargains and HD DVD Bargains areas in our forums.
