Amazon Price Glitch Update

How great were the deals during the Amazon 'glitch' sale on comics?  I'll give you my personal experience in real-time as the packages arrive!  Check out the Amazon price glitch tally at the top of my blog for stats.

After Tuesday's single package delivery we're at a 53.7% discount off MSRP (including shipping).  Not bad, but not earth-shattering.  Definitely bearable by Amazon and probably a minor blip to their margin (so far). 

News updates:

Amazon is purportedly offering (or going to offer) $25 gift certificates to those who received quantity change emails.  Personally unconfirmed at this time.  http://techcrunch.com/2010/03/09/amazon-marvel-comics/

Amazon still not listing sales offerings on Marvel or many other graphic novels as of today: http://www.bleedingcool.com/2010/03/10/amazon-still-not-the-business-of-selling-comics/
