According to the back of the steelbook package, if you don't pick up your pre-order by 10/25/09, you can refund the pre-order. What I don't know is if you have to give back the steelbook or not if you refund the pre-order after 10/25, since it is listed on the receipt with a SKU #.

Just picked mine up yesturday at BB. They still had a couple of steelbooks left. I'll PM with TRU ad and get it for 9.99 AC. The steelbook is don't know... a bit "empty"... not a lot of designing went into it... looks really blank is what I mean. Still looks nice though from the inside. Can't wait to get the UP steelbook. :-D

What are you talking about, man. The cover is fucking class.

This is one of my favorite things about a lot of steelbooks. Quite a few of them use alternate art, that is often more subtle than the usual advertise-y photo collage covers you see on a lot of regular DVDs (make no mistake, though, they look great with full art, too; The Dark Knight and Indy 4 steelbooks are amazing). As collector's items, they're aware that they don't necessarily need to be loud enough to grab the attention of someone who doesn't already want to buy them. Some examples:

Are there ads for next week yet? Any chance Best Buy has a lower price than 25.99?

I look forward to hearing about people try this.
Walmart is probably going to be getting my cash since they take the coupons without blinking an eye.

Well, I'll be doing this, so you'll hear about it from me.

Worst case and they don't take it back without the steelbook, I'll get it for $17.50 w/a $5 GC to TRU, $10 from TRU AC and $7.50 for the "preorder" .

That's a good option, TRU is coupon friendly. I wouldn't normally sweat it but my pumpkin opened the steel book shrink.

I just canceled two pre-orders a few days ago. Handed them them the receipt and said "I would like to cancel these pre-orders". I got a refund, there was no mention of the Steelbooks.

I'll be picking this up from Wally along with MVA.

Do you have to cancel the preorder at the BBY at which is was placed, or can you go to another location?

Check your credit card statement if you paid with a cc. I did this before with another pre order. On the receipt they return the whole price but on my cc statement they didn't refund the whole pre order price. They subtract it with the preorder item. BB is a bad company.

What happens if we never show up to pick up the pre-order at all? Do they wait two weeks then put the BD back on the shelf and I essentially paid $7.50 for the SteelBook? If this has already been discussed sorry.

In my experience with pre-orders my store never held the pre-ordered copies aside anyway for people so they'd never know if you didn't pick it up at all or not. I guess they'd know on some report, but it wouldn't matter to them because nothing was being held outside of the normal stock on the shelf.

Get a refund but keep your steelbook or sell it.

Cancelling a pre-order is a common practice here and Best Buys own policies permit cancelling pre-orders for full refunds without returning the bonuses.

I find it hard to believe that BB doesn't mind people keeping the bonuses when they cancel a pre-order. Any evidence of these "policies"?

Will they probably do anything about it? No.

Does that make it okay? No.

End of the day, if you can live with it, then go ahead and do it. Of course, that goes for pretty much anything in life though.

On a less morally dubious topic. Is anyone here getting the BluRay Book combo? I assume that the combo comes in a hopefully decent slipcase.

I'd love the steelbook but don't see a reason if I can't store everything in it. Can it even house all the 3 discs?

Free offer for the steelbook is officially gone from the online store. I tried adding both to my cart and it's charging me $15.00 for the SB and $24.99 for the movie which is just too much when TRU is offering the movie for $19.99 (and probably more willing to accept the $10 off coupon).

Thought about going the route of ordering from BB and adding Sleeping Beauty on Blu Ray to get the $15 GC, but the movie is jacked up to $29.99 now which makes this deal totally blow.

I was able to price match the TRU ad and use the disney snow white coupon so my total was $11.25 with tax. Good deal especially having the steelbook.

Picked mine up with no hassle whatsoever even though I feared the wrath of Satan with all the initial pre-order, checking out, fiasco. Grabbed the BD for $24.99, proceeded to customer service. Lady asked me what I needed, I said 'just to pay for this, I pre-ordered it and it says to come to the customer service counter." At this point, I got a 'Whaaaa..." expression from her, and a "You pre-ordered that?? did you put like $5 down?" I said, "No, it was $7.50, and I have my receipt right here." She scanned the receipt, then the movie. Asked for $18.22 (w/ tax). I even glanced over the counter at the screen (they never face you at the CSR desk) and noticed the pre-order line item was in red. I guess they have special buttons to handle pre-orders.

At any rate, I'm glad I had no problems and got this magnificent package of a blu ray and get to introduce something new to my 3 year old son.

They do if it's a manufacturer's coupon (they get reimbursed the same amount no matter what).

Maybe I'm misunderstanding something here but in this case wouldn't he own them $7.50 before leaving, since the retail for the steelbook is $15?

ARGH, I KNOW I put the receipt for my pre-order in my wallet but now it's nowhere to be found. The whole reason I did that is so I wouldn't lose it. ugh. Do they NEED the ORIGINAL receipt or could I take the printout from the Reward Zone entry for the pre-order?
