    Not My Job Anymore, Go Bother Someone Else.

Can anyone explain to me how these things work or link me if there's an official explanation? I have a box of movies in my car I've been getting ready to unload at a place just to get rid of them and if this event might be the better option I may do that. I was looking for quick cash with the first place but if I can get some good Blu-Rays out of it I may just do this but don't know how it works.

Next time, just look up a few posts.

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.

Pft, sorry about that. I usually do, been dead tired all day and didn't opt to do that this time. Thanks again.

EDIT: Ok, after reading that, so you can basically only trade them in 5 DVDs a day since it says you only seem get 5 coupons a day? If that's the case, kinda sucks for me as the nearest one is like an hour drive from me. It won't be something I could do everyday since that's a long drive (and gas consumed) just to get a few $5 off coupons for as many movies as I have.

- YMMV. I've traded in 7 movies before I even knew about the limit and had no issues. It really depends on the cashier or manager. If you brought someone along with you or used a different cashier, you might have luck with that.

Although a 1 hour drive plus gas tends to put a damper on things.

I really hope we can buy the BB Bond exclusives On her Majesty's secret service, You only live twice, and The spy who loved me for $4.99 a piece. If this happens, I will crap my pants. I will walk into the Best Buy bluray section and literally crap myself.


Pics..if it happens...;)

So it looks like you can get Predator 1 + 2, X-men, and Aliens 1-3 for $4.99 each with upgrade. Might have to bite on some of those.

I am hoping workaholics s1 & 2 blu stay at 12.99, the 5 off and I got a rewards cert to use. 2.99 plus tax would make for the tightest butthole.

Yepper, it's happening. I checked the ad yesterday at work. Two page advertisement, and the bottom of each page has examples of what you can get for what price. I recall seeing Predator on one of the pages. Sorry if I'm repeating information!

- Unfortunately, the Predator transfer (Regular and Ultimate) are both horrific. Even at $5, I would pass.

So in the latest announcement they indeed say it's 5 per trip. The smartass in me assumes I can't simply walk into the store with 5 DVDs, get my coupons, then return to my car and re-enter with another 5 DVDs and repeat amirite? If that's the case which I'm sure it is I wouldn't get any crap if I went in with some friends and they each had 5 of my movies along with myself right? I mean they really don't know they're carrying my stuff (or even if they suspect it no proof) so as long as they don't see anyone throw the coupons my way after the exchange I should be good right? The nearest Best Buy around me is over an hour away and my friends and I usually go up there once a month so it's not really a place I can keep visiting constantly just to throw down another five.

You can't PM and use the upgrade and save coupon right?

Would have been nice to PM Fry's 19.99 for Avatar 3D and use the coupon. :-(

It's very YYMV as it is considered double dipping. I haven't been successful but you can always try.

It will be in the ad.

Nope. It is YMMV for PM to Amazon. All my stores don't. The upgrade coupon will then be double dipping. This is where I say your chances are almost less than .01%.

I'm shocked that there are a lot of people reporting that their BB doesn't pm Amazon. Mines does no questions asked. The price matching will work, I'm not sure about the double dip method though.

Sonic is right it will already be $24.99 next week as the ad is already been posted at br.com and here.

Also you can't PM and then use the coupon as members have already stated. It is very YMMV and considered double dipping.

any help is appreciated.

is there any way to check online to see how long an item will be marked at a sales price? I would just check the tag at my closest best buy, but it is about 30 miles away, and I typically only make it out there on sundays. I called the store and was left on hold for 15 minutes, only to be told they had no way of knowing.

curious about the workaholics season 1 & 2 set. its currently 12.99. is this the new price point, or will it be jumping up after this week's sale?

I'm kind of shocked that some Best Buys are so weary of PMing anyone, let alone Amazon. I mean, the BB I work at is the only one in a 500 mile radius, but still. I have no problem PMing anyone. It's just weird to know that some stores are turning people away because they don't want to lose $8.

...only to be told they had no way of knowing.

Yes, it's the permanent price. And it's true that there isn't a way of knowing, as far as I'm aware of. New tags are printed out early Sunday morning and put out before the store opens. That's when Anderson Merchandising puts out the media tags and adjusts prices if it's called for.
