Thursday's Amazon Easter Deals

More great DEALS today on Amazon Germany. Look out for sets from Daft Punk, Nirvana, Fairport Convention, The Alan Parsons Project, Judas Priest, Siouxsie and the Banshees, John Mellencamp, The Orb and The Beatles.

These special ‘lightning deals’ will only last for a very short period until the ‘allocation’ has reached 100% so you have to be very quick. SDE will send you an email about 5 minutes before the deals highlight below, as a reminder but only if you’ve signed up for the SDE Deal Alerts via Email service!

If you miss out try out making use of the ‘waiting list’ – you might be lucky and if you use Google Chrome the translation of German is automatic! This post will be updated frequently during today as deals come and go. Good luck!

    Today’s Deals posts here for comments etc.

  2. Geoff says:

    Johnny Cash – The Perfect Collection (20CD) at 09:00 (UK time) Nevermind box up again at 12:30, Abba – The Albums (9CD) at 16:30 and Hendrix – West Coast Seattle Boy (5CD) at 17:30 seem to be today’s highlights.

  3. Fabry65 says:

    Just got the Bitches Brew 40th anniversary box at 24€ including shipment from Amazon DE. Hurry up if interested – fyi on Amazon Italy price is twice the german one….

  4. Shaun says:

    Did I do something wrong? Bought The Orb History of The Future when it was around 16€ but I’ve been charged 16.05GBP.

  5. Kenny says:

    Eternal gratitude, Paul, would never have even known about these.

    Have to say … and not boasting but … I really haven’t found it as difficult as some of you guys are reporting. Got everything I wanted (NMTB, PJ, Daft Punk and In Utero). What I didn’t get was because I wasn’t set up in time or away from the PC. Would have loved Massive Attack …

    This has been far easier than other such “flash” sales. These seem to be automated to release at the stated time so don’t use your watch … make sure the time on your PC has been updated the same day … and as soon as the time (to the second) has come, refresh and cart.

    Why am I saying this?! Increased competition and I won’t get anything tomorrow …

  6. richie says:

    Johnny Cash 20 Album box first thing tomorrow and John Mayall box couple of hours later. Will be at work just hope the `net is as fast at work as at home.

  7. NeilKelly says:

    £6.78 with delivery 1 CD 22 tracks. The UK site is showing £5 1 CD 24 tracks??? Am i right?

    • NeilKelly says:

      Status Quo that is to say

      • Julian H says:

        Yes, it’s a very confusing release policy – here in Germany you only got the 24-track version via Media Markt and Saturn – and it was a pain in the ass! There’s even a 25-track version but that only works via iTunes and EMP in GB. Even the box set only includes the 22-track CD but it has the Mystery Song/Little Lady medley on a vinyl single with Claudie (Strings Mix) on the other side which is not on any CD! talk about confusing the buyer…

  8. spot says:

    Status Quo – Aquostic: 4,99€

  9. NeilKelly says:

    Cheers it worked. Why don’t the various Amazon’s sites do it via a button on the site? Don’t want you ordering from foreign Amazon sites?

  10. NeilKelly says:

    Lol after i refreshed it seems others have been asking the same question. I think i wondered this point for some months now. I use (and prefer) Mozilla Firefox. Right click not working there. Anyone any ideas? Can’t believe it’s not more straightforward

  11. Bobo says:

    I just found out to right click on whichever page I am and then the translation to my own language is given – thanks for the support guys

  12. spot says:

    Or try this Google service:

  13. Bobo says:

    @Geoff : I use Chrome so where can I chose the option?

  14. NeilKelly says:

    Probably a silly question but can you change the language on any foreign Amazon site and if so how. I may’ve forgotten from the past…

  15. Geoff says:

    @Bobo – use Chrome as it gives you the option to translate and will do for every page.

  16. Michel says:

    on the road today with my samsung S5 nothing succeeded… BUT now im home and with my PC ive managed to get Judas Priest and The Orb (so far)

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Not a bad haul… just Status Quo left for today then final day tomorrow. Sorry if the email alerts are getting a bit annoying.. normal service will be resumed after tomorrow. P

  17. Steinski says:

    The Orb Deluxe 16,99€! Super!

  18. Bobo says:

    anyone knows how I could have the entire content of the website in english as I don’t see a button of any kind to do so

  19. spot says:

    The Orb – History of the Future (3CD+DVD): 16,99€

  20. karl says:

    just picked up the judas priest on a waiting list for 34 euros

  21. Luc Piens says:

    I got the Judas Priest Box for EUR 34,99 .

  22. Bobo says:

    Have the Island and Alan Parsons box sets already gone? As I don’t see a time next to them

  23. Mike Pendlebury says:

    Just got the Judas Priest box set! I’m giving up for the day! Thanks SDE!

  24. Bobo says:

    Priest box just came online and immedaietly mentioned it was 100% fully subscribed. How many did they have? Two? I’m on the waiting list with many more hungry people I can imagine

  25. Bobo says:

    Judas Priest full box set from 4:30 pm GMT onwards, is that 5:30 Brussels time? Price is currently 58,97 which I think is NOT the reduced price

  26. Bobo says:

    Paul, I don’t seem to get any mails in my inbox so how do I know when something goes up for sale at reduced price?

  27. Bobo says:

    thanks Spot and Jay : it works indeed

  28. spot says:

    Judas Priest – Complete Album Collection: 34,99€

  29. Bobo says:

    am I right that most of the mentioned ‘deals’ still have to be offered? The Mellencamp box however states 11 am. Was this this morning and thus already gone or should it be 11 pm? Also I have an account with do I need to have another account with first before I can order?

  30. jay says:

    your amazon login should work at any amazon.

  31. Francis says:

    I would prefer any ‘deals’ to be on the Amazon UK website, which I am registered with, rather than other Amazon websites which I am not registered with as too much hassle to join them all for bargains that may later turn up on the UK Amazon website or eBay.

    • spot says:

      Just use your regular name and password, should work with every amazon website.

      • Francis says:

        Well, it didn’t work. I added the item to basket, then went to pay and it was not in there. Failed every time. Come to think of it, I don’t feel that I want to give my credit card details to all different countries, so will stick to the UK Amazon for deals (there is more to life than the occasional CD offer, plus I know my account details are much safer, rather than give them out to every Tom, Dick and Harry).

        • Paul Sinclair says:

          It’s the same login for each amazon. In order words they already have your credit card details!

  32. spot says:

    Mark Ronson – Uptown Special: 8,49€

  33. My Jelly says:

    Hi Paul can you add me to deal alert e mail list


  34. Stu says:

    Dependant on postage costs then, it may work out cheaper (or cost neutral) to get the In Utero deal from the Great Offer Store site.

    Or at least if you miss out on Amazon, that’s another option.

  35. spot says:

    Nirvana – In Utero (Ltd. SDE): 48,99€
    The Alan Parsons Project – The Complete Albums Collection: 36,99€

  36. Bagged a Daft Punk box off the reserve list :-)

  37. adam shaw says:

    Paul ,
    Im not getting the emails and how much didthe Island box go for ?

  38. Mark says:

    Got it! Another 9 euro for postage but still….

  39. Tommy Christiansen says:

    Jeez..the Daft Punk and Fairport Convention went instantly…

    • dave says:

      absolutely ridiculous, I keep getting put on the waiting list, It’s so bloody difficult to get something. there must be hundreds sitting behind their comp clicking when the item goes into sale mode.

  40. Paul Sinclair says:

    Anyone manage to grab Daft Punk?

    • richie says:

      I did, but I clicked the wrong button, I wanted the Fairport Convention box which I managed to also get. Cancelled the Daft Punk right away, not a fan, hope a fan did get it.

  41. spot says:

    Fairport Convention – Live at the BBC (4 CD Box): 14,99€
    Daft Punk – Box Alive 2007/Alive 1997 (Vinyl LP): 57,00€

  42. Tom says:

    What time does the Island box set go on sale?

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Er… that would have been midday today. Been and gone. Aren’t you getting the emails!? :)

      • Tom says:

        I signed up for the emails but I am not getting them.

        • Paul Sinclair says:

          For some reason ‘yes’ hadn’t been selected in your profile for receiving the SDE deal alerts. I’ve updated for you so you will get the emails now. Next one is at 3.30pm GMT. There are a lot of emails this week due to Easter Deals Week on Amazon Germany, but normally you wouldn’t get that many!

  43. Andrea says:

    Daft Punk box didn’t drop full price, did it?

  44. spot says:

    Booker T & The MGs – Time is Tight (3CD): 12,99€

  45. Stu says:

    The In Utero super deluxe can be picked up for £35 on the GreatOfferStore site at the moment, worth keeping in mind for comparison later.

  46. DJ Control says:

    Great deals but shipping is so expensive for customers outside EU esp in Australia. Average €11 per deal but goes up for big items. Scored the Island 50 box for a great price but a large slice of the discount lost with €18 shipping.

  47. spot says:

    Various – Island 50 Super Deluxe Boxset (Ltd.Edt.): 49,99€

  48. spot says:

    Alice Cooper – Raise the Dead-Live from Wacken (CD+Blu-ray): 11,99€

  49. richie says:

    Got word that my Rush Sector 1&2 and Ricky Thompson box are on the way, I suspect that they will be in one package but I`ve paid postage for 3. Went on the Amazon Germany site got them to phone me back and the nice lady gave me a 5 Euro reduction. Not bad for two minutes work.
    I`m glad I missed the Mellencamp box, good value for £35 and I would have been tempted shoddy packaging taken into account but I already own the CDs! It`s these box sets I really have to start restraining myself!
    Now that 5 Euros will come in handy for the Fairport at the BBC box ; ))

  50. gary C says:

    Did anyone get the big Decca box yesterday?

  51. spot says:

    Frank Zappa – Jazz From Hell: 6,99€

  52. bob says:

    Roxy Music box set back down to 49 euros for anyone still interested.

  53. Mike Pendlebury says:

    Happy to have got the Siouxsie box set earlier. Now trying to decide whether to buy anything else today or hold out to see what other amazing deals come around later in the week! Thanks SDE!

  54. BRENEZ Alain says:

    Got the Mellencamp box set !

  55. Straker says:

    Mellencamp instantly goes to waitlist. Annoying.

  56. 2wicky says:

    amazon reviewers don’t seem to be too impressed with the Mellencamp box set, cheap packaging and missing booklets

  57. spot says:

    John Mellencamp 1978-2012 (Limited Edition): 48,99€


  58. BRENEZ Alain says:

    waiting for the John Mellencamp box set now

  59. BRENEZ Alain says:

    me too !!!

  60. spot says:

    Siouxsie & The Banshees – At the BBC (3CD+DVD, Box-Set): 14,99€

  61. Mark Hutchinson says:

    Wish they had the first Beatles at the BBC :(

  62. Paul Wren says:

    Wow – three x Beatles vinyl at £14 – absolute bargain. I bought this at Xmas from Amazon UK after a similar alert from Paul for £17. Brilliant deals all round. My only criticism of Amazon Germany so far is that all these deals are aimed mainly at CD packages – more vinyl, please!!!!

  63. Paul Sinclair says:

    There was plenty of time to get The Beatles Vinyl. Probably because it’s early!!

  64. spot says:

    The Beatles On Air – Live at the BBC Volume 2 (3LPs): 18,50€

  65. spot says:

    Livingston – Animal (CD&2LP&USB Deluxe Fanbox): 17,99€

    I never heard of this. Is it any good?
    Great deal though.
