Amazon’s Instant Video Twice-Yearly Sale

Send to Kindle

I am all about the digital media bargains, and I’ve written before about how I’m making the transition from videos on disc to digital videos. Basically, I never buy any movies on disc anymore, and I’m gradually replacing the discs I already own when the Instant Video is available at discount. Since Amazon Instant Videos can be watched on TVs, computers, and all kinds of mobile devices (even Apple devices), they’re the most versatile and useful digital video format out there to date.

Right now, a whole LOT of Instant Videos, movies and TV shows, classics and recent releases alike, are available at a discount because Amazon is holding its Instant Video Twice-Yearly Sale, so it’s a great time to scoop up the bargains. When I can get the movies I want for $5 – $8 each, I jump on it. ! Here are just a few of the Instant Videos included in this sale:


Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters – sale price: $7.99. This Instant Video is a recent release, and was priced at $12.99 before it went on sale.


Snatch – sale price $6.99. This Guy Ritchie classic has been on my to-buy list for a long time, but I’ve been waiting until a version with closed captions was available because of all the actors’ thick accents. Closed captions are there now, and I bought this one yesterday!


Flight – sale price $7.99. Yep, it’s the Denzel Washington flick that nabbed him an Academy Award nom.


50 First Dates – sale price $4.99. One of my favorite movies: sweet, funny, and unlike most Adam Sandler comedies, it’s not stuffed to the gills with gross-out humor.


Midnight in Paris – sale price $4.99. Widely considered one of Woody Allen’s most accessible and entertaining films in years.


Pulp Fiction – sale price $4.99. The film that made Quentin Tarantino a star writer-director.


Blade Runner: The Final Cut – sale price $6.99. The director’s cut, which most critics and fans agree is the superior version of the film.


The Wizard of Oz – sale price $6.99. This one is actually FAR superior to that more recent release, Oz the Great and Powerful (Ooooh, snap!).


This tiny assortment barely scratches the surface, because hundreds of Instant Videos are on sale. They may not ALL be priced between $5 – $8, but there’s still plenty to choose from in that price range. Click here to browse the full listings of the Amazon Instant Video Twice-Yearly Sale. It’s definitely worth your time if you’re looking to pick up some digital movies at a deep discount.
