Here's something interesting I just found out about Amazon. Amazon says that they "believe all helpful information can inform our customers buying decisions" however when I pointed out that Amazon basically overcharges on some of their "bundle deals," they sent me an email stating that my review did not meet their posting guidelines.

Here's the Full Text of My Review

Save $27 - buy the seasons individually, June 15, 2012 By Hugh Pickens (Baltimore, MD USA)

This review is from: Moonlighting DVD Bundle Seasons 1 - 5 (DVD) Here's something interesting I just noticed.

The Moonlighting bundle costs $77 on June 15, 2012 and includes Seasons 1&2, Season 3, Season 4,and Season 5.

However when I order each one of these packages individually, the total is only $49.

Buy them individually rather than the Amazon bundle and save $27.

I just did.

Here's the email Amazon Sent Me
