Whoop new board. I'll start off with a question. I feel like starting a DVD collection, but since its no high priority, I don't want to spend more then 5 bucks per DVD. I don't need blue ray or HD just regular dvd. I live in Kennesaw but travel to Atlanta for work, if anyone has any suggestions that would be great. Thanks.


Do Gamestops still sell DVD's? I know when they did, they were selling for pretty cheap. I realize there are also Moviestops, but I think some GS still sell DVD's.

Thanks, I figured i'd check moviestop they have specials running all time, I found some good deals online but then shipping kills them.

That may be your best bet, if you don't mind used. I would still check the GS first because I know that they were/are frantically and desperately trying to get rid of their DVD supply not too long ago.

Not too many GS still carry DVDs. Around the time that the B2G4 started, they consolidated them at certain stores. The one in Sandy Springs has a decent selection, but it's mostly crap. I couldn't find anything I was interested in buying multiple DVDs for.

I'd check CD Warehouse. The one up here at Mansell/Roswell Rd. is GREAT for DVDs. Tons of good movies for $5, and plenty more for $10-13. In fact, I'd say it would be well worth your time to head inland and visit. They also have several hundred pounds of TV on DVD. It's in a shopping center behind a Chipotle.

Have you been to the Moviestop on Barrett? Your selection might be limited if your max is $5 but it's probably the largest used inventory under one roof in metro Atlanta.

if you're still looking, I got a coupon printout for moviestop when I traded some games in yesterday (at the GS next door). They say that the expiration date is 03/31/08 on the flyer but considering they were giving them out inside the bag at GS, I think it's likely that they'll honor it. Anyway, here it is:

Check Speedy's weekly Target/CC/BB ad threads for cheap DVD sales in the DVD thread. Goodwill and other thrift stores would also be a spot to check, if you don't mind used. Hollywood and Blockbuster usually have decent sales on used DVDs that come out to about $5 each.

FYI - the Edgewood Target has 2 of the MGS4 PS3 bundles in the case, if any of you are looking for one.

I'd been looking, then gave up, then found them for sale on BB's website today, ordered one, and then walked right into Target only to find them sitting right there. Dammit. I almost bought one and then canceled my BB order...but I figured it wasn't worth the trouble. :(

Lost for 360 at the Buckhead Circuit City rang up as $13.xx not the normal clearance price of $16.xx!

The clerk was suprised and said he was going to get one himself (there were a handfull left).

HAS ANYONE had any luck finding an Eye of Justice / PS3 eye bundle in ATL for the new $29 clearance price? Both the Cobb WAllymarts are still full price.

Anyone seen any cheap 360 controllers in the ATL area? I've been needing some for a while, but have been holding out for clearances. If anyone knows of a store that has any for cheap (blue, pink, etc...I don't care), please let me know


The Sears off 285 exit 37 had a pink one for ~$25 last time I was by there.

How cheap do you need the wireless controllers to be? You might want to check some of the local CAG's trade lists. *HINT*

when the blazes did the old thread close. I swear you leave the internet for a few weeks and everything changes. missed the 2.0 'launch' I'm behind on most of my podcasts, my local thread is gone. it's a bloody whole new world. While I was gone (in Stone Mountain) I picked up SingStar Pop for $12. It's actually bloody fun. Since :wii:Rockband is pretty bad I'm looking forward to :wii:GHIV

I was up at Target (Lenox) and saw some goodies
:ps2:
Guitar Hero II (Disc Only) - $20
Crash of the Titans - $10 (3+)
Spyro:Eternal Night - $10 (3+)
Dance w/Stars - $15 (2)
Sega Superstar - $20

:wii: NMH - $30 (2)

:ds:
Bleach: Blade of Fate - $15
Disney Meteos - $7

I picked up the only Meteos I saw and a Guitar Hero.

I also saw at TRU (Buckhead) :wii:Bleach(3+) and :wii:Zack and Wiki (3+) for $20

I didn't check the prices but TRU did have clearance stickers on 360 controllers. I really only went there to see if they have :ps3:GRAW2 apparently it's supposed to be $5.. but no dice.

Whoop new board. I'll start off with a question. I feel like starting a DVD collection, but since its no high priority, I don't want to spend more then 5 bucks per DVD.

check the weeklys for BestBuy and Target they're always having sales on DVDs whole lists for just $3-5 each. A few months back i picked up Snatch, Knocked Up, T2, and A Scanner Darkly all for $5 each.

Are these hard to find? I was at the Kennesaw TRU yesterday and they had four or five of them.

we're multiplying like kudzu!

Driving along the other day, I saw a guy with a weed wacker fighting back some kudzu on his driveway. Made me laugh, because this guy has to be about as bad a procrastinator as I am.

Kinda/not really...there are a lot of threads here and elsewhere in which people are looking for them. I have seen them from time to time; today I was back at that same Target and they were out...but the BB next door had 2 of them. Since its the only current model with BC, I think they are in decent demand, and they are selling for a slight premium on Ebay and CL. It seems that the online retailers can't keep them in stock, so I guess it really just depends upon where you live.

To me the only thing worse than Kudzu is thin stalk bamboo. My old house had that shit growing everywhere and I had to fight it back with a saw and hatchet constantly. I sure don't miss that!

Went to my local target in Kennesaw, GA Friday to pick up some candy for the movies. As I was checking out I noticed they had a sign taped to the register that stated (To my best memory and no picture taken)

"Due to recent fraud activities we no longer accept these coupons"

then below was the $5 off Toys coupon and a 20 dollar one

Just thought i'd let you know. After some CAG research I saw that it was posted that the toy coupon is "This coupon may be dead. As of July 2nd, stores were notified to stop accepting copies of the coupon. YMMV. Even though it doesn't expire until 10/1/08"

Speaking of T2, the "definitive version" according to most (Xtreme edition?) is a $5.50 end cap filler at Target now. It's usually on an endcap along the furnishings/food/outdoor stuff main aisle that runs from front to back of regular Targets. I'd get it, but I want it on BluRay.

I saw this, too. I considered it ironic since it was the $10 360 game coupon that got abused by more than a few posters in the Target thread (and many other people I'm sure) while the 5 off 25 was an internet coupon without the same listed limitations.
