EXPIRED Deal Alert – Amazon Prime Only $67 for New Members

AmazonAmazon is offering Prime for $67 today only for new Prime members, regularly $99. Prime benefits include:

  • Free two day shipping on many items
  • Video & music streaming–anime included!
  • Photo cloud storage
  • Book lending
  • Exclusive sales & offers

Some anime titles are included in the free Prime video. Amazon has offered exclusive Prime deals like the Death Note box set for $19. In addition, Amazon often pricematches manga prices to Walmart and Barnes and Noble, meaning you can often get titles around 50% off with free two-day or release-date shipping.

Already a Prime member, or just looking for more ways to save? Keep an eye out on eBay where many phone sellers are selling the discontinued Fire phone for as low as $110 (prices fluctuate). These phones include a free year of Prime for both new and existing members. You do not need to activate cell phone service to get your Prime, just a wi-fi connection.

EXPIRED Deal Alert – Fullmetal Alchemist: The Complete Series Blu-Ray $35

Fullmetal Alchemist Blu-Ray Complete

Amazon is selling the newly-released Fullmetal Alchemist: The Complete Series on Blu-ray for $34.99. Shipping is free with Prime or on $35+, so you’ll need a small filler. Featuring 51 episodes, this box set is 46% off MSRP, a good price for a new release.

For more details about this set, please visit Funimation’s page.

I don’t know how long this price will last, so hurry if interested.

EXPIRED Deal Alert – Sailor Moon R Cutie Moon Rod Proplica Only $57.45 – 43% Off!

While I usually post manga-related deals, this is too hot not to share!

Sailor Moon R Proplica

Right now at Amazon, the Sailor Moon R Cutie Moon Rod Proplica is only $57.45, 43% off the MSRP of $100. I don’t know how long the price will last, but since Amazon’s prices fluctuate constantly, I would hurry if you’re interested.

The next lowest price for this item is about $70 shipped on eBay. All the lowest buy-it-now prices on eBay just dropped today, in line with Amazon’s sudden price drop. I know that’s not a coincidence. Previously, the cheapest one has ever gone was about $68 for a used/open box one.

The Proplica line is Bandai’s premium prop and replica items of Sailor Moon wands and brooches. Featuring sounds and voices directly from the anime as well as Moon Kingdom base, this is a beautiful item for cosplayers or collectors. If you want to learn more about it, Sailor Moon Collectibles has a nice video review.

Don’t forget to order through Amazon Smile to make a donation to the charity of your choice!
