That is most definitely not true. No store HAS to take any coupons you give them. They get reimbursed for them so from a customer service standpoint it makes sense for them to take them but they don't "have" to.

Actually, they do. If they're a retailer of the product and it's a manufacturer coupon, they're required to take it. They're reimbursed for it, so they lose nothing on the deal. If it's a store coupon, that's another matter, as it is money they're losing on accepting it.

Awesome news - and great timing too! :D

I'm hoping to pick up some new releases that are coming out during this sale window, assuming they aren't cheaper elsewhere:
Prometheus 3D
ET
The Great Mouse Detective
Pete's Dragon
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 7

Also, I might nab a few Disney/Ghibli movies I'm missing from my collection (Treasure Planet, Home on the Range, Castle in the Sky, & Whisper of the Heart) if they're cheap.

Looking forward to the new $9.99 lists too! :D

You can use both at the same time, as the DMR coupon is a manufacturer coupon and the U&S coupon is a store coupon.

I've done that multiple times in the past and if BB says anything that you can't do it, they're 100% in the wrong. They get reimbursed for the manufacturer coupon, so they lose nothing in accepting it and have to take it.


I understand. I've used 1 manufacturers coupon and 1 best buy coupon successfully at least 15 times. Several of those times I had to say what you said about the "1 manufacturer coupon, 1 BB coupon policy" and that the store will be reimbursed.

I've also been turned down at least 15 times. This happened at the same stores that accepted them before. There were just different employees and different managers present. Sometimes I've had the store manager straight up lie to me and tell me that they don't ever get reimbursed for manufacturers coupons. I just drive to the next BB store instead of arguing and burning bridges.

Anyone wondering how the heck I even managed to do it successfully at least 15 times should know that I've bought a lot of blurays during every single U&S except the very first one. I used many coupons from coupons.com and I used many many many Universal $3 100 year coupons.

At three different BB stores, I couldn't get them to apply the Descendents coupon and the U&S coupon. Off the top of my head, I remember I got it to work for The Crow, Mimic, Apollo 13, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The Sting, Babe, American Graffiti, American Pie, Casino and Parenthood. Ninety percent of the time that it worked, I still had to convince the BB employee that I wasn't breaking any BB policies. In my experience it's been easier when I'm spending a lot of money on a lot of movies and not just buying cheap $1.99 blurays.

I guess it's time to prepare for the question:

"I don't understand. So I can trade in *any* DVD? Or does it have to be the same title?"

I love it when the OP on these UaS deals explains literally everything, yet this question pops up no less than three dozen times. It almost gets to a point where I SWEAR it has to be trolls just asking the question to annoy. Anyway, looking forward to this sale again :-)

Is this storewide at all Blockbusters or only certain stores? I already bought a bunch of Dollar Tree DVDs, but I will have to check this out regardless.

Just a word of warning. I've been turned down a few times for my movies being in Blockbuster cases. I simply walk out to my car, put them in normal DVD cases, and walk back in.

Def in for Prometheus and Cabin in the Woods if it goes on sale again.


I just finished watching Cabin in the Woods right now. Wow. I mean wow. I hope it is $19.99 again sometime during the U&S so we can get it for $14.99. I loved the hell out of this film. While watching it, I felt like this movie was made just for me. I can't believe my library had this on DVD and that I got it on release week.

I can't wait to watch it again.

That's what I came to say. Hopefully they aren't lame and price them at $14.99.


I have a feeling they might be $14.99. That's why I promise to crap myself if we can get them for $4.99. When the BB employee hands me the receipt, I will unload in my trousers.

You're not wrong. The next thing that happens is people saying "as long it's not a DVDr or pornography." And then the next thing that happens is someone saying "Darn it, I was planning on trading in my copy of Teenage Brazilian Bubble Booties 14."

From my experience and others most stores are picky about needing a COMPLETE DVD (art, box)...to "recycle". YMMV on whether the rep accepts/notices regions, scratches, and duplicate dvds.

It seeems like there's a large faction of non OP readers who come into a thread & complain "don't wanna look thru 30+pages to find an answer so I'll ask here instead" & the 1st response links the OP which clearly answers the ? w/i the 1st 5 lines.

That's kinda of a waste, you can generally score most B/R's for $15 @ BB direct or via pm. I look for kmart.com, sears.com, walmart & target. $10 or less for me already saw the B/R for $15.99 a week ago. I'd suggest looking for the obscure combo packs sometimes BB has like 3-4 B/R packs & the only thing missing in the UV or digital copy mainly. They're listed on the site w/o a pic but the store reps just look at it as a B/R & match the BB.com price. Save you're coupons for better deals.

True. I usually stick to $4.99 movies during the U&S promotions. Sometimes I get adventurous and spend $7.99 if it's something I really want. I bought Thor 3D and Captain America 3D for $19.99 each which was unusual for me. This time around there's some more expensive stuff I'll probably buy because I have a shitload of BB credit.

I didn't know I wanted to buy Cabin in the Woods until today. I just watched it for the first time and now I realize it's something I will want to own on bluray and watch over and over again.

It's hard for me to get my Best Buy's to pricematch worth a damn, especially Bestbuy.com. I always get turned down. Where did they have the bluray for $15.99? On bestbuy.com? I wish I would have known I wanted to buy it back then.

1. How does this work?

Basically, you bring in a DVD to Customer Service and they will give you a $5 off Blu-Ray coupon. Pretty simple.

2. Can you use it on any Blu-Ray?

Only on Blu-Rays $9.99 and up. Previously, music Blu-Rays have been excluded, but everything else is game.

3. Is there a limit of coupons you can receive?

5 per day seems to be the limit.

4. When does the coupons expire?

Last day of the promotion (8/11).

5. Do multiple disc DVDs = multiple coupons?

No. If you trade in a TV show season boxset = 1 coupon, not 3 or 4.

6. Can I trade in ANY DVD?

Naturally, they won't accept DVD-R/RW's nor will they accept pornos. So, no trading in Wii Like 2 Fuck Part 3.

7. Can this be applied to past orders?

No. At most you can do a return/rebuy, but you would have to pay the current price so it may not be worth it.

8. Do I get the coupon back if I return the Blu-Ray I used a coupon on?

YMMV. Rule of thumb, be sure you are content with what you're getting before you use a coupon on it.

9. Do the DVDs I trade have to have the actual artwork and any inserts?

YMMV, but unless you get a real douche at CS, most won't care as long as it's in a case. (Generic DVD case will do)

10. I'm low on DVDs, any suggestions?

Dollar stores and places like Big Lots will occasionally carry $1 DVDs that you can get to trade in to Best Buy. Garage sales work as well if you can find one that is selling DVDs on the cheap.

11. Do coupons stack?

Nope. 1 coupon = 1 Blu-Ray purchase. Of course you can use multiple coupons in one transaction if you are purchasing the same amount of Blus.


This should be added to the OP.

Nope. I would always get turned down because they were "outlet center" items. At least that outlet center crap is gone now. But just the other day I got turned down trying to buy the BB Deal of the Day on Max Payne 3 and the Max Payne 3 strategy guide. I drove home, ordered online for in-store pickup, and drove back today. That's more reasonable though because it was an "online only" sale.

They only had one 360 copy. I said, "there's only one copy on the shelves and I'm not sure if it is going to show up as in-stock on the website when I get home."

Even if they held the game for me, I didn't know if I'd be able to order it online. They didn't care much about customer service. I ended up ordering the stuff for in-store pickup at another BB store. I live right in the middle of 3 BB stores which are pretty close. I also have 3 other BB stores within reasonable driving distance. At least this happened at one of the further away stores.

Thanks for telling us about this. After reading your post, I went to my nearest BBV (like 9 miles away now instead of 1/10th of a mile away). I ended up buying a few $49 cent and $99 cent DVDs. Now I have at least 10 DVDs to trade in for the upgrade and save sale. At least it's a start.

I also bought the American Reunion bluray for $6.49. I almost bought The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo bluray (daniel craig, fincher version) for $4.99, but it was missing the 2nd disc. I ended up putting it back.
