Deals and discounts - media and apps


There has been way too many kids films and just generally bad films. I’m dying for Sicario to get the discount treatment, man I loved that film. This week has been Three Stooges (2012), First Daughter (2004), Noah (2014) and Unfinished Business (2015), an average out to 36% on Rotten Tomatoes.


Watch it, then read the book. And keep away from any spoilers just in case.


Have a look at this app for notifications of discounted music, movies, tv, audiobooks, books and apps. Alternatively, use their website:


Shouldn’t everyone just not talk about it or something?

Hey Kerr, thanks for this update, I don’t buy everything that’s on special, but appreciate you taking the time to let us know,


Agree thanks for the effort in letting us know.


I wish there were some great films discounted, but that’s asking a lot. But I’m happy to have picked up some decent films for $3 - $5 such as Aliens, The Departed, Die Hard, Fight Club, Gladiator, Idiocracy, Kingsman, Office Space. Combined with 20-25% on iTunes cards and it’s very cheap.

MODS, any chance of changing subject to just “Deals and discounts”?

Perhaps this could be a repository for app discounts also.
