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.

They are a participating retailer for the coupon, though I've had issues with them trying to scan the UPC on the coupon. Normally they'll try to scan the UPC and when they can't, they put in a code for "Manufacturer Coupon" and the $10 value for the coupon. It prints out as such on the receipt, and they stick the coupon in their drawer when they're finished with the transaction.

Target, it scans the UPC without any issue and knocks off the $10 automatically.

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)?

I'm not sure to be honest. It's a "free" steelbook case for the movie, so in theory, it's the same with or without the steelbook. You'd have to find out when you try to do a PM.

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.

Any PM use, either via the normal PM process or a manual price change, that stops coupon use in the register. To do a PM + coupon, they would have to make a manual price change for the PM + coupon price, and that'll need a key-turn/manager/senior CS rep to "sign" off on it. That's YMMV, as you're seeing with not everyone letting you do it.

The total of the movie is the total of the movie, the 7.50 does not count as a discount - its just you paying some of the price now. If TRU or somebody they usually price match has it for less you can still price match - even with the pre-order and even with the coupon.

Yup, after they hit total they have to hit F7 to enter the amount of the coupon if it does not scan.

I got lucky and found 2 at the 2nd Best Buy I visited. I had given up hope and on may way towards the outside I spotted an endcap with about 5 right in front of the registers. I picked up 2 for myself.

I'll pre-order 2 copies today. Possible Steelbook is RARE item in the future :)

Yes is it possible because its Disney. There are lot of fans out there since childhood, even though they're adult now like me. So

The suspense is killing me!!! I have to wait about 30 more minutes so BB opens to see if they have any left. The last thing I wanna do is drive to different locations just to get one.

It'll be like the Departed steelbook fiasco all over again.

Picked up 2, hopefully I can use my 2 coupons when I go to pick up both copies of the actual movie. Otherwise I'll just be buying 1 copy and hope I can get both preorder payments apllied to it. The coupon does state like previous ones that it's "One Coupon Per Item Purchased".

Just got back from getting 2 myself.

It should be pointed out that the case is the same size regardless of whether you purchase the DVD or Blu-ray.

The Westwood location here by UCLA had about 8 or so left if anyone in the area is looking to buy one.

The steelbook on its own is $14.99, though when they scan the DVD or BR UPC from the back of it, it puts the steelbook down as free ($14.99-$14.99) and charges $7.50 for the pre-order. It's all detailed out on the instructions on the back of the packaging for the steelbook.

About a dozen at my store, but they wouldnt let me fully prepay and use the 10$ off BD coupon.

That's not how they work. You can't buy an item that's not in-stock at the moment. Plus, the coupon isn't live until 10/06/09, so it wouldn't work even if they did let you pre-pay for the whole thing.

Had a bizarre experience, clerk didn't know how to do it correctly and only scanned the Bluray pre-sale code, not the steelbook case UPC itself (receipt only shows the 9425721 pre-sell) . I pointed it out and she looked at me like I was insane. She asked the other cashier who similarly told me it was right, you just scan the bluray UPC code. They even read the directions saying to scan both and told me they were right.

I guess as long as I get the proper credit on pickup it's ok.

(gotta love the typo on the front-- you can buy either the "Blu-ray + DVD Combo pack" or the "DVD + Blu-Ray Combo pack". Decisions, decisions!)

The BBY location I stopped at today had at least 20+ of these sitting around. I suspect that stores that are out of stock will eventually get more in.

New sig coming soon.

not really a typo. There is a blu-ray + dvd set & a dvd+ blu-ray set that will be released the same day. Just depends on what kind of case you want.

I see reports that employees are telling some people that they aren't getting any more in. Don't count on any more chances.

Saw 7 at my local store today. They only had 5 yesterday and their database showed -3 in stock. Clerk was puzzled at the -3 too.

If your BB put the steelcase on the shelves, be sure to look for crumpled corners before you buy.

Ok, now I'm confused (not hard to do)... the DVD comes with a Bluray, and the Bluray comes with a DVD?

I think it means that they both are the same (both come with a bluray disc and a regular dvd disc). Only difference is if you want the traditional dvd case or a bluray case.

I paid $7.50 for my pre-order of Snow White and I got the steelbook case for it. What will happen if I never pick-up my pre-order on October 6? I'm assuming I can still keep the steelbook case? I figure I'd tell the cashier that I want to pre-order the item just so I'd only pay $7.50 for the steelbook case.

Nope, they'll send out a repo man to repossess it. :roll:

Of course you can keep it. But seriously, you don't want to pay the extra $8.49 to actually get the movie?
