Amazon Buy 2 BDs, Get 40% after VAT removal (Star Wars Orginal Trilogy - $9) @ Amazon Italy

https://www.amazon.it/gp/promotion/AY7WJGVGCMAEC

This is a good deal because they remove VAT then apply the promotion.

Here's my order:

1 Lego Batman (2Blu-Ray 3D), Will Arnett: Bruce Wayne/Batman
EUR 9,40

1 Star Wars - Trilogia 3 Blu-ray, Harrison Ford
EUR 13,05

Items: EUR 22,45
Shipping: EUR 4,41
-----
Total: EUR 26,86

While some items from this deal may be region free, many are not. On the first two pages of items (there are 34 pages of items total), each item that I was interested in was locked to region B. Bear this in mind when picking out items.

As an example, while the Star Wars Trilogy listed above is region A+B, the Lego Batman above is locked to region B.

For 2 for XXX deals or $$ off deals it does matter, but as long as they multiply by 0.82 and then 0.6 it doesn't matter which order.
No, I guess my point is that with some of these promos VAT isn't removed. For example, someone in Europe pays the same as someone in the US for a 2 for 20 Euro deal.

I wasn't getting it to work, but then I noticed you have to clip a coupon at the top of the page. Didn't realize that since it was in Italian.

I haven't gone through the items to see which studios are involved

Star Wars and Lego Batman are both Region Free

Pretty much anything Disney, Universal, Paramount, or Warner is going to be region free. Most Sony will be. This doesn;t always apply is the studios are Co-releasing items esp with Studio Canal
I did double check. On this site. All the items I was interested in are listed on br dot com as region B. So I can't trust this site either?!

How about Eagle, EOne, Koch, and Medusa?

Obivously if you can find a scan of the back cover or discs if it has the A/B/C logos it makes it a little easier. B logo only still can be A-friendly but it's a red flag.

The itmes from Eagle and Koch I've checked on most of the time are locked. Medusa I don't know. EOne seems to often lock, but many of their UK/Fr/DE items are free.
Yes, I knew that "Region B (A, C untested)" doesn't mean it's locked to B. But it still isn't confirmation enough for me to buy.

Molto grazie for your reports on the four distributors I mentioned!

May I ask if these are region A friendly?

Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice (Ultimate Edition) -- WARNER BROS (https://www.amazon.it/dp/B01M68HPW0)
True Detective: Season One -- Warner Bros (https://www.amazon.it/dp/B013CEYLTQ)
Who Framed Roger Rabbit -- THE WALT DISNEY COMPANY ITALIA S.P.A. (https://www.amazon.it/dp/B00DRZTRWM)

Are there any other resources for knowing what regions some of these might be coded? Some items I'm looking up aren't in the database here and most that are, are region a untested.

I will tell you the region if you list the titles you are interested in.

Thanks op. I ended up getting the Star Wars Trilogy Prequel and the Hansel & Gretel steelbook. Using the later for the packaging (already have the US) if it happens to not be region free.

They're both region free. You'll be fine.

Thanks OP.
I went for Lego Batman 3D and The Martian 3D for about $18 total shipped.
The Martian is listed as Region B only on Amazon Italy's site, but the picture for the back of the bluray shows the symbol for Regions A,B & C.
