Good way to state it, yes.

They were supposed to scan the steelbook UPC and either the DVD or BR UPC as well. That knocks the $14.99 steelbook price down to $0.00 after a $14.99 instant discount and charge you $7.50 for the pre-order.

If all you're seeing on your receipt is $7.50 for the pre-order, then yes, their inventory is screwed up for the steelbook, though not for the pre-order itself.


You make it sound easy but this definitely did not happen at my store. They rang it up both preorder first then case and case then preorder and both ways it didnt come off even after hitting total. They tried it multiple times multiple ways and it did not come off, so there is something that is causing a problem.

After multiple employees working on it and a manager who couldnt be bothered to do anything they finally figured something out but I am 99.9% its still wrong. Did anyone get charged tax on their preorder? Mine was 7.93 total.

Basically if you can get them to just ring up the preorder on the case just dont say anything. It may screw up their stock, but the altertanitive is spending an hour waiting around and them still having a screwed up stock. As

Best buy once again screws up something that should be easy. :roll:

Yes, I got charged tax on my pre-order as well. And they did not scan the case UPC - just the UPC for the blu-ray pre-order.

Since a steelbook can hold so many disks I kinda wish that they would make these available for tv series sets so they would take up less room on the shelf.

Thanks for the response, happy to see that things are somewhat in order on my receipt. Be happy they didnt read the instructions and do like they were supposed too (scan the case upc). Saved you a lot of time and aggravation.

That's what my receipt looks like and is probably the reason why one of my local BB's inventory said they had 20 steelbooks in stock but 3 employees (2 in uniform and 1 secret shopper dressed as a hunter) couldn't find them anywhere in the store.

I didn't have any problems getting mine. I found about 20 to 25 of them on the shelves. The girl at the counter just scanned the upc for the steelbook and the upc for the blu-ray combo version and it rang out at 7.50. You just keep the receipt and show it to them when the blu-ray comes out and then you just have to pay the rest of the price, which should be about 18 dollars.

Yeah, I specifically had them scan the $7.50 steelbook, then BD/DVD combo, hit total, and no package deal screen popped up, and prices didn't reduce. I hope everyone is right about this working out, I mean, they still have to honor the fact you put $7.50 down right? Or will they come back and say, "well sir, you didn't have this rung up right, you must pay full price for the movie, on top of the $7.50 you already paid." That would be horrible!!

The receipt is key. I was told to make sure I don't lose my receipt as it's the only proof that I made the pre-order and already paid $7.50 towards the final total.

I was told the same thing. Usually they are relaxed about it, and say, "we can look it up with your card" but this time they really stressed to keep the receipt.

Maybe since they didn't scan the steelbook UPC, I'll be able to use the $10 Disney coupon without doing a return/re-buy?

Did the coupon scan automatically or did someone have to override in order for the $10 to come off? I was under the impression that the coupon wouldn't work correctly until the release date.

she didn't scan it she just entered something in the computer and subtracted $10. After the total it says (coupon MFG) -10

I didn't even check the date on the coupon. i printed it from the computer section inside best buy

Has anyone had any issues getting the coupon from the disney movie rewards page? I click on the image for details, it tells me to log in, even though I am already logged in. Then, when I log in, it doesn't bring me to the place to enter the UPC, it just brings me to the main page. When I navigate back to the offer, it tells me to log in again. ARGH!

I am pretty sure the coupon program uses IP verification. Try on another PC on another network if you can.

Don't know whether they restocked or if you're looking for something on the website that says "steelbook - blu-ray" but the steelbook is the same whether or not you get the blu-ray or dvd and they most certainly are still available on bestbuy.com. I just pre-ordered both today. just follow the pre-order process and click the "free steelbook" offer.

I went to several Best Buys in the past 3 days and they had at least 10 sitting out at each. Also it appears to be listed on the Best Buy website again and inventory is available at every store around me.
