Are there ever Amazon Instant Video discounts or deals? We have a Netflix subscription (8 out at a time), but there are a lot of movies they don't have. Lately we have been paying $2.99 a pop on Amazon for Instant Video, and Walmart offers a similar service for $2.99 a pop. Does anyone know any way to save on either of these services? I have lots of Amazon codes for music that come up all the time, but they don't work on Instant videos. Also, Prime does not cover Instant Videos only the Prime specific content.
Amazon Instant Video often changes their prices day by day, especially to compete with iTunes. I can't imagine them offering up discount codes since they frequently slash their prices on a day by day basis to drive volume. Offering blanket codes would completely destroy their margins or cause them to sell videos for a loss.
I built a site to find streaming videos and do fast price comparisons on shows I want to watch: http://watchitstream.com. For example, you can see that the best selling TV show, Homeland Season 1, is $17.99 on Amazon and $21.99 on iTunes as of this post.
After looking at a bunch of pricing data over the last month I'm finding that Amazon is frequently the best price for a show or movie that isn't streaming. If you find the site useful or see room for improvements, let me know.
