I know how much everybody likes steelbooks here. I did not see this mentioned yet :)

Best Buy is giving out a steelbook free with the pre-order of Snow White either on BD or DVD. They have the offer online, but I picked it up in-store today.

http://www.bestbuy.c...cat190600050017

You get the steelbook right then and there if you do this in-store and you have to put a $7.50 deposit down on the movie. Just be sure they scan the correct UPC for your choice of format. The case itself is the same height as a blu-ray case but lacks any logo on it.

Very nice in person. Dunno if a group buy is wanted/needed since this is US. But if so then somebody else will have to round that up.

edit - Best Buy is now doing the same deal for the movie "Up". The case is THICK, not sure how many discs it holds, maybe 4?

I see that for some reason, the DVD and BD cost the same. Also, is there a widescreen version of the film or has it always been fullscreen?

I think in 1937 there was no widescreen yet. Widescreen was introduced to compete with TV I believe.

Is the steelbook the same size for both the DVD and the Blu-ray or are there two seperate ones?

anyone have pics? Also to those that have it already, are they in good condition? They are steelbooks after all and might come with dents or scratches.

I've never seen a steelbook in person. Is it a metal slip cover that goes around the plastic BD/DVD case? Or, is it an actual metal case into which the movie disc can be placed? Thanks in advance.

The blue color on the actual metal part of the case is really cool looking.

Inside the case is the transparent kind with movie art from the film, like some of the other steelbooks have had before.

This is the coolest SB I have seen thus far; I am really glad I got it (for my kid ;)). Also, for anyone who might not know there is a $10 off coupon in the :br: coupon thread.

So where do you find this case? Is it on the shelf with the other BR movies or do you go up to the cashiers to get them?

I had to ask a clerk for assistance for the one I bought. All the ones set out Sun. morning were bought when I got there, they had the rest in the back.

SOLD OUT ALREADY!!! I didn't even know they were already available. Do you know how many more they had in the back at your location.

Otherwise this means I must go tomorrow morning to secure a copy.

Awesome that $10 off coupon sold it to me.

I have a question though, if I pre-order from Best Buy do I have to go to the same store to pick it up? The Blu Ray comes out when school starts and I won't be able to pick it up at the same Best Buy.

Coupon made this an easy sell, if the steelbook wasn't an easy sell in this case.

I can deal with it for $16.99 AC.

Has anyone ever had problems using the $10 off coupons at BB? I've used them at TRU several times with absolutely no issues. But haven't tried it at BB.

It really depends on the BB, I have 3 near me. 1 will take the coupons, 1 will take the coupons and let me pm, 1 won't let me PM with a receipt sometimes, yet other times it will let me PM without anything at all.

Generally I think they're OK with it.

so i have a question. since bb pricematches, would they take into consideration the price of the steelbook? so say toys r us sells it for 5 dollars cheaper, would they say their copy only cost 12 (26.99-14.99)?
