Stand By Me Dvd ----£2.48

A sleeper hit when released in 1986, Stand by Me is based on Stephen King's novella "The Body" (from the book Different Seasons); but it's more about the joys and pains of boyhood friendship than a morbid fascination with corpses. It's about four boys ages 12 and 13 (Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, Jerry O'Connell) who take an overnight hike through the woods near their Oregon town to find the body of a boy who's been missing for days. Their journey includes a variety of scary adventures (including a ferocious junkyard dog, a swamp full of leeches and a treacherous leap from a train trestle), but it's also a time for personal revelations, quiet interludes and the raucous comradeship of best friends. Set in the 1950s, the movie indulges an overabundance of anachronistic profanity and a kind of idealistic, golden-toned nostalgia (it's told in flashback as a story written by Wheaton's character as an adult, played by Richard Dreyfuss). But it's delightfully entertaining from start to finish, thanks to the rapport among its young cast members and the timeless, universal themes of friendship, family and the building of character and self-esteem. Kiefer Sutherland makes a memorable teenage villain and look closely for John Cusack in a flashback scene as Wheaton's now-deceased and dearly missed brother. A genuine crowd-pleaser, this heartfelt movie led director Rob Reiner to even greater success with his next film, The Princess Bride.

True, but perhaps that's changed?

That seems a bit harsh to me. See:-

Several guides on this website tell you how to post deals properly, see Rayman's guide:

*Title: example: £50 Off HUKD Computer £100 Delivered [Please be sure to include any delivery costs]

Don't see why this is any different for Amazon, its made it to the front page and if a front page deal is wrongly listed or has the price wrong I'm happy to make such a criticism.

The OP posted this deal exactly 1 minute after the previous one he posted (coincidentally for sale at the mentioned price of this one?). A little more haste in getting the details correct and I wouldn't have voted it cold... (its still boiling anyway regardless so obviously people consider it hot)

Thing is, though, the OP specifically included this line:-

Now I realise that very much in the main, it's the done thing to post the all-inclusive price in the subject - I get that.

But clearly the intent, here, was to highlight a low price filler item - albeit one that perhaps the OP suggests is a bargain and that many will want - to add to any orders, to get you free delivery with Amazon (ie push the price above the £15 threshold). Now I got that from first reading the description.

True, the price may have changed, or now be inaccurate - but I get the point - a cheap item, that many may well want, that pushes your order above the £15 threshold for free delivery.

So with that in mind, why not have the price edited to be accurate, and accept that it's been posted as a filler item to bump the price of the basket above the free delivery threshold?

That would be fine, of course, but it is fair to expect the poster of a deal to find out the delivered price and it is necessary to state this in the title so when reading in forum view or on RSS etc all the info is there to see.

TBH With amazon I'd have no problem with even just "XXX £2.99 + delivery" in the title but think its important that the info is included, its clearly in the rules on posting after all. No big deal, but there are 3 deals on front page at the moment that don't follow these simple guidelines (including one from a moderator) and I think its a rule worth enforcing - there is no reason why it should be 1 rule for amazon deals and 1 for others.

HEY BACK OFF - it was £2.97 last night you ******* -- i put this deal not inclusive of postage as its something to use to go over £15 for the free delivery

Whats with the personal threats and insults dandoc? Simply pointing out the rules state the title should show the delivered price, did read your post, yes I know you mention amazon and the free delivery offer in there, but title should at very least say £2.48 + delivery, can't see your problem with that?

I didn't see any threats, there. And as to any insults, well you did kinda reap what you sowed, there

jah128

Which you could have done, quite un-antagonistically - without the risable wording and the cold vote.

jah128

Which is fair comment - maybe it would have been better, with hindsight - to phrase your initial reply so.

jah128
can't see your problem with that?


I believe you. I believe you can't see a problem. However, others reading this may well have read provocative wording, then faux surprise when the OP takes annoyance.

Fair enough, maybe I was a bit blunt, but I voted cold and gave a reason as you're meant to do. In my mind the deal wasn't properly listed, especially when using RSS its much clearer to have the total price listed in the thread title, ideally like "XXX DVD at Amazon, £2.99 (£4.44 delivered)".

Didn't mean to be offensive, sorry for that, but did I do stand by the reasons for cold voting & that the OP should have spent a little longer composing the post. I'll say no more :thumbsup:

Therefore its not a good price as postage still needs to be added by the buyer. Sorry that 'filler' item getout clause don't cut it:p

I used it as a filler to get me to £15, so thanks OP.
