Of course, it’s sometimes hard to see a bargain from a ripoff, so make sure to check the specs of things like PCs and figure out what the regular price is before hauling off and buying something. For example, if you look into the Lord of the Rings Blu-ray deal, you’ll see it’s an especially good offer since it is, indeed, the special Extended Edition of the series.
