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


I know exactly what you mean. I carefully selected my two as I always do. I'm just not so sure everyone is as anal as we are.

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


Yeah, no kidding and you actually get 2 discs of the movie. I'm keeping the BD and giving the DVD to the burn unit of a local children's hospital.

Same. The cashier picked mine up, put it next to her ear, and started shaking it violently while saying, "What IS this? This got a movie in it? What's in here?" I told her it's just a metal case and she still kept shaking it. She stopped when I finally said, "Please stop doing that. It's hurting my ears."

So wait a second... you mean to tell me that $14.99 is the total price for the Blu-Ray set at BBY? According to the employee I talked to she said the real price is $34.99.

Don't forget the coupon.

Pay $7.50 up front for the pre-order/steelbook, subtract the $10 Disney coupon, so you have $8.49 left to pay come October 6.

The real price is $25.99.

Already got the coupon. The store I stopped at had $14.99 below where they had the steelbooks. An employee saw me grab one which is when I got informed about the $34.99 tidbit. I'm guessing either she was guessing on the price or was misinformed on the price.

Still I suspect Toys R Us will do their usual buy one get one half off promotion when Snow White comes out. We'll see but even then $7.50 for the steelbook case isn't too bad.

Would the Disney coupon work if TRU has that promo? The fine print says "Coupon may not be ... used in conjunction with any other offer."

Those coupons.com coupons worked earlier this year when TRU was running a 'Buy ___ and get $10 off ____' deal.

That's how I got 2 copies of Bolt :br: for $20

If it scans and takes off the $10, it tends not to be an issue.

I've used the Disney coupons at Target, TRU and Best Buy and the only one with any issues on using the coupon was Best Buy, and they just had to do a couple extra steps.

TRU, not an issue, it'll scan and take off the $10.

Picked one up today and pre-ordered the Blu Ray case version. Now I'm wondering if I should've gotten the DVD case version since I plan to use this steelbook. I think it'd make more sense to just leave the DVD in the original case.

Btw did anyone else have to pay for tax? It seems like whenever I preorder something from Best Buy they always include tax and don't deduct it from the total.

Are these supposed to be rare? Why is everyone picking up multiple copies? My high traffic Best Buy in the Bay Area has at least 7 of these on the racks. If I know anything about the Silicon Valley... there are generally tons of hoarders around here so it's surprising to see these still around.

There's only one steelbook case. The DVD individual release for Snow White doesn't come out until November 24th.

Edit: I didn't realize until looking at Amazon that Disney is doing TWO releases of Snow White on October 6th. Both will be the Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack but the only difference is one will be in a Blu-Ray case while the other is in a DVD case. Then there's the DVD only release on November 24th. Talk about making a good way to confuse the Fuck out of people there Disney.

You'll have to do a return and rebuy on the order when you get it, since you can't use the coupon when you pick up the order.

I picked up one last night at my bestbuy here in AZ, they had a bunch of them left and their employees were very confused about the entire process. I am pretty excited about the 10$ off coupon though, that is awesome. It was a pain in the but to print off but finally got it. Thanks.

Anyone have either a scan of the coupon, or advice for getting it from the disney site? Try as I might, I keep putting the upc from the old vhs copy, and it keeps just telling me that it doesn't exist.

Did you try entering 786936150605 for the old DVD?

Also, I don't think a coupon scan will work. I printed out 2 and their bar codes were different.
