    Chris, that Aldi link goes to a "Page Not Found" page on LH. This is the link you're after: https://www.aldi.com.au/en/special-buys/wednesday-19-february-2014/

    EDIT: Also that link to the TV shows on Video Ezy's online store shows 0 results on that page. I think the link is meant to be: http://www.videoezy.com.au/home/TV-on-Sale/list/443/bestsellers

      Cheers for the heads up -- links have been fixed.

        Aldi link still not working

          That would be because it's no longer Wednesday 19 Feb.

    One has to wonder what their point is of putting one dvd on sale, for one day only. If sites like this didnt link it, it seems like itd be completely unknown, and only bought by 'chance consumers'.. Who probably don't read this site much.
