Looks like all three are Lionsgate, so no porting via Movies Anywhere

That's because you have some digital credit. It's applying to the price.

That's the new trick by Amazon to blow up your "Digital Credits", aka No-Rush Shipping credits. You got to be signed out, to see what the real price of the selection.

How is it a trick? Is there ever a time you don't want to spend your credits?

That is the best point.
At first I thought it was annoying/misleading,
Now am used to it, and it is OK.
Not Great. Just OK... Smilie

I guess it's not truly free since you have to spend your credits, which would be irritating if you only found that out after the fact.

No, but you should be able to know when and how much the credit is being used. Not displaying this fact and showing "free" instead is almost a fraud.

It sure comes off like fraud, showing "$0.00" then charging another price. I've pushed this at Amazon, the lower level staff including Digital department are clueless and keep saying "it was always this way" and trying to customer-shame for not guessing that the "free" price they display is with your credit applied. No explanation for why their other "Digital" sales, Kindle, ALWAYS displays the price you will pay, regardless of credits.

TLDR: Amazon Kindle prices can be trusted for now, but their Digital Movie store is lying on price to anyone who has certain types of accumulated credits. After they screw you, they will refuse to return the Ill-gotten gains, because they call those earned credits as "coupons" and take no responsibility for what they're doing.

Anyone else extremely pissed about this should email "jeff@amazon.com" (their escalation department) about it with a short note explaining the problem and perhaps screenshots as above. They have heard an earful from me about it but it will probably take a bunch of pissed customers highlighting the issue to them before they see the errors of their ways.
