feeling noob-ish. but with ordering it online, how does it work?
Typically when it was a preorder bonus, I used to put the (in this case) movie, along with the case, and it would knock off the price of the case when both were in the cart. When I do that now, it charges both, so how does it work when I want to get the movie? Bring the packing slip in-store and show them that? Order it online, and my bby profile would have a record of it?

I fell in the same Brave hole, and my bby is usually pretty good with having enough. But one day I saw the sign, the next visit a day later, it was gone, and nothing since. don't wanna fall in another hole with nemo here. -__-

I don't think the free case incentive is live online yet so you would just be buying the case straight up right now. I don't think it'll be easy to get them to use that purchase towards the movie in store either, but someone else could probably fill you in better about that. The buy the movie, get a free case offer should go online at some point though, just like it did for Brave

Edit; Scratch that, the Free case offer is live with the regular edition here: LINK

Just add that to your cart and the case should automatically be added and show up as being free

Didn't see any today at Best Buy in Iselin/Woodbridge. They rarely ever break street date (aka release things on Tuesday even if they're supposed to be out on Sunday). I'll check tomorrow during lunch.

Went looking after work and nothing. I knew I should have went sunday, but I slept on it. Oh well, will look again tomorrow. I would assume they will receive a few shipments of them each week I would think

I wouldn't assume that. I think that with the Avenger SB, they got released early and no one restocked, at least in my area. (San Jose)

Brave hasn't been restocked in my stores either.

Hmm... I'll check my store one more time tomorrow, but then I'll have to break down and order this. Hate paying extra over release week price though.

I was tempted to grab one today when I was there, but I just don't like Finding Nemo enough. If I wasn't about to enter the police academy and quit my job in a few months then I would, but I need to start watching my funds. My Best Buy had tons

- Next time you look for the Steelbook/MetalBox, make the associate look up the SKU.

- You need to bring the movie and your receipt to the customer service desk. They'll ring you up and take the pre-order deposit off the total.

Do these cases resell for much on their own? My store had a ton of them today.

Managed to get my case today with no problem. Store had probably a dozen of them at least.

So here's a question: What does everyone do with the regular case that the movie comes in since you have the steelbook? I have steelbooks for Toy Story 3, Up, Lion King, and now Finding Nemo and have no idea what to do with the regular BD case/artwork. I know the easy answer is throw them out but I was wondering if anyone has any other ideas.

I don't do anything with the Steelbooks other than display them. But don't through the slipcase out. There is a market for cases/slipcases. If you want to get rid of them, sell them or trade them away.

Not by a whole lot but some of the sellers do carry out unethical method such as asking for a return on their "preorder" while also keeping the profit from selling the case. Given, the value do go up a bit once it's all gone since it is limited.

Usually, the number of discs the steelbook holds is less than the 3D combo pack and sometimes less than the non-3D package.

The ones for Cinderella, Muppets, Avengers, POTC: On Stranger Tides and the like, I have the BD case + slipcover, and it's usually just holding the DC disc or DC disc and DVD disc. Tucked away in a desk drawer.

Ethics might not be the right word to use here. The text on the back of the steelbook says you can cancel the pre-order after two weeks from date of release, as well as the pre-ordered item being returnable once picked up.

I've put a couple on EBAY since I don't really collect steelbooks, it honestly just helps me offset the cost of the BluRay. I believe they sell from $10-$15 on average.

I don't even open these empty cases I get. I just toss them into a storage bin that is rapidly filling up from all the ones I've got over the years. I'm 50/50 on getting the pre-order money back when I don't want to buy the movie. I've only forgot to get my $5 back once and that was from the LOTR release, but never again! And usually, you don't even have to wait the two weeks. I returned the one from Avengers 2 days after release b/c I got it from Target on launch day.

So if we order the cases online, can we still cancel the preorder?
