The Save: October 9, 2009
TV on DVD
Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn like it haute on the West Coast, home to the sixth season of Project Runway on Lifetime. But who doesn’t have fond memories of the Bravo years in New York City? For die-hard ”make it work” fans, the show’s official online shop (projectrunway.seenon.com) has marked down its DVD set of seasons 1 — 5 to just $89.97 (originally $135.95). Remember: Saving a little cash is always in.
The emporium of hip kitsch Pop Deluxe has a special offer exclusively for EW readers: $5 off a single purchase (redeemable until Dec. 1 at popdeluxe.net with the promotional code POPSAVE5). Titles in the Pop Culture Books category include Obsessed With TV, Obsessed With Hollywood, and Obsessed With Star Wars (we’re all of those, how about you?), as well as Secret Lives of Great Authors and Gangsta Rap Coloring Book.
Need a cure for the Blu-ray blues (defined as a yearning for white-hot Blu-ray technology, complicated by anxiety over the hefty price of upgrading)? While top-of-the-line players run upwards of $400, one of the smartest buys on the market is the Samsung BD-P1600, currently earning strong reviews for its performance and nifty features — it even streams Netflix and Pandora. Some retailers are selling it for as much as $279, but you can snap it up now at electrozone.net for $189.99.

Eliza Dushku Says…
”You could start a fantasy football league with friends and use the $20 on munchies and beer for a tailgate party, and watch the game free on TV. Any day is a good day when the Patriots are playing.”
