So, I was returning movies today, and read on the quick drop box that Blockbuster will be having a Half off used game/movies sale between July 3-7th. Don't know if this is YMMV, or if it is with all the stores. Gonna head up there on the 3rd, see what I can find. Since most used games there are $10, some $5 games that are somewhat decent would be nice.

Yep, already mentioned in the BBV thread. But I suppose this is good since most people don't read all 5x pages :)

It's $14.99 and under

Knowing BB, they will bump some game prices up to exclude the deal....

Hopefully i can find some good PS3 games for half off on the 3rd. How much normally are used PS3 games at BB? I havent been to BB in a while.

so this is on games 14.99 or less? If so, the selection sucks at my Blockbuster on those games.

Well this explains some of the BBV price jumps that were happening (Spiderman: FoF)

Considering I bought 4 of Spiderman FoF today from 3 different locations and they were all still $12.99, I dont think there was any jump from corporate on that title.

This is NOT a nationwide promo. There is a B1G1 sale on games 14.99 and less starting 7/8, however, there is no nationwide 50% sale for the 4th of July. Each store was given the ability to make their own sales as they see fit for the 4th of July weekend, and apparently the OP's store chose to do this. You probably won't be seeing this at any other stores (unless your store chooses to come up with this promotion on their own as well).

Yeah, this particular sale (50% off all used games) smells very franchisey to me (or like Warner says something just a local store is doing). The OP needs to post the location of this store or this really doesn't belong in the Deals section. And even then, it should probably go to the Regional section.

Yeah, like I stated, this is YMMV. If no one else can post that their store is doing this, I will close the topic and make a post in my states regional section.

Bummer about the whole ymmv thing...went to my BBV today and they didn't know what I was referring to (said they may have a promotion for the holidays come this weekend though). Could've scored Dead Rising for $12.50, PGR4 for $10, and Smackdown Vs. Raw 07 for $5...

As it seems like this regional only (bummer, eh), I‘m going to lock this topic to avoid anymore confusion.
