    Ideas: Sale on Purchases

    OK, I am one of those suckers that loves a deal. I almost never buy my DVDs at full price. Between BestBuy and Circuit City they have so many good deal on sale DVDs.

    Why does Vudu offer selected DVDs to buy on sale? Offer them for a limited time and see what happens. Am I off my rocker? Would anyone else be more motivated to buy a DVD if there was a short term "sale" price?

    Vudu runs promotions on rental items but I don't recall seeing one for purchases.

    P.S. Uhmm.. there's a separate Evangelist forum?

        Yeah, go into find movies and look at the collection placards. You'll see this week things like "Free Classic Horror" and "Free Classic Science Fiction."

          I mean more like the Simpsons movie. I can buy it down the street for $12.99 or $19.99 on Vudu. Next week the Simpsons DVD will go up $19.99 locally.

          Why doesn't Vudu discount new releases for a short period to promote buying?

            Hard to say. Here's my guess (my guess and $2.10 will buy a cup of coffee at Starbucks):

            A store selling the physical media will buy copies in volume. As such, there is probably a discount on purchases at a particular volume. So then they can offer a discounted price. Vudu being digital media doesn't really buy in volume and then re-sell product. So there's really no way for them to purchase "1000 copies" in advance at a low price and then re-sell them at a discount.

              Don't most store use DVD new releases as a loss leader i.e. they take a hit in order to get people in the store to buy other products. There is no need for Vudu to do this as they are just selling and renting movies. So the discount would come on the backside after the movie has had its run.

                Maybe look at this differently. If Vudu was able to increase the number of downloads their cost per download would decrease. In other words, if sales would drive people to buy then the cost may go down and their profit margin increase. This is all predicated on the fact that their contacts have some type of volume discount. I can't imagine the contracts don't address this.

                  I wouldn't be surprised if contracts had no volume discounts. I haven't heard of Apple getting any discounts on music which is a similar model.

                    Well that doesn't mean much. Apple isn't noted as being open about contracts or internal developments.

                    With or without volume discount Apple does offer sales on various CDs...

                      It's a known fact that for those deals and promotions Apple works with studios to get them to lower prices, i.e. Apple doesn't subsidize those sales.

                      Also, Apple doesn't actually make much profit (in %) from iTunes sales due to transaction costs, royalties, etc. They make their money on hardware sales -- one of the reasons analysts like Apple so much is because its bills of materials are always pretty low compared to retail prices.
