The best deal is actually the 3 movies in 1 pack (eg: Austin Powers 1,2,3) deal. All for $5 after U&S coupon. Hopefully, they publish more of these titles in these packs.

I was going to make a trip today but decided to wait until tomorrow so I could get Taken 2 and not waste too much gas going back and forth everyday.

Hopefully I can find this copy of Zombieland that's eluding me as well as that Boondock Saints copy I put down. I'll also keep an eye out for that Book of Eli steelbook that someone mentioned earlier in the thread.

Just came back from Best Buy, got Shawshank Redemption, The Departed, and The Book of Eli Steelbooks for a total of $10 (I had a $5 gift card) I really wanted The Matrix Steelbook but the Best Buy that has it is a 30 min drive :-/

It just saying it seems so redundant. When the girl clearly saw yesterday my upgrade wasnt available until 2014...do they really think it'll change again today?

I could see if they made some note about it in their system or something, but they checked my phone eligibility the SAME way I would at my house, on their website... Not a special screen or anything different that would require them to "activate" the coupons for me.


That's not the point. Checking your upgrade eligibility should be good for one coupon, not ten. There's no "check your upgrade and get all the blus you want for 5 bucks off" deal. If there were, we wouldn't all be trading our DVDs.

Just got back from my 2nd trip at best buy.
Got...
300 steelbook
The shawshank redemption steelbook
The book of Eli steelbook
Fight club 10th anniversary blu ray
Twister/ Poseidon/ the perfect storm triple pack
All $5 each after coupon. I need zombieland for sure, I had it in my hand but I only wanted to get 5. I also need departed. I couldn't even find that one there. Guess I better try to hold off till Friday or Saturday tho. I also should try to go to dollar tree and hopefully get some $1 or less DVDs. I actually went thru this thread last night and made a list of 17 movies I wanted I seen people getting. And that was 17 after I made my first trip without making a list. Lol

Exactly...good for one coupon. So just give me the other 4 for the DVDs I brought in.

The way you worded that last sentence makes me think you think I didn't have DVDs with me. I DID. I even had 5 yesterday.

I'm saying if the whole promotion is about the upgrade to Blu and save...then I should simply be able to bring how ever many DVDs I had with me to CS and get that many coupons without some phone upgrade hassle each time.

The girl at mine gave me 5 coupons when I only traded in 4 movies. I gave it back to her and she said, "Thanks for being honest. It's my first time doing this." Nice girl. Anyway, I got these for $5 a piece:

The Town
2001/Clockwork Orange/The Shining 3-Pack
Twister/Poseidon/The Perfect Storm 3-Pack
300/Troy/Alexander Revisted 3-Pack

I've got more movies to trade in but was a little upset I didn't find Inglorius Bastards. My fault for going late. I'll probably trade more in this week and then go next week when End of Watch comes out.

He definitely didn't think you brought in any DVDs to trade in. I got what you were saying, but I'm also just used to hundreds of Best Buy horror stories every time they enact Upgrade and Save.

To the "If I send you an offer via PM, please respond to it even if you aren't interested" guy, I'm still waiting to hear back from you after I sent you a PM in July of 2009.

Congrats on being awesome

:roll:


I just think the people who come on this site, and read the previous post, are smart enough to understand that they would be $9.99 after the coupon. I was kidding around when I quoted you, so I believe you come out looking like the douche.

I think you might be missing the point... The girl (both times) sent him over to the mobile phone area because she (from what I gather) didn't know what she was doing either time. He brought in his DVDs to trade, and she sent him over there both times. I don't think he went to the phone area with five DVDs in hand expecting to get 5 coupons for the phone check...

Yeah, he wasn't clear about having any DVDs to trade. Sounded like he was complaining that they wouldn't give him a bunch of coupons for checking his phone upgrade eligibility.

Hopefully I wasn't the only one confused :p

Haha, yea...you're good man. I kind of realized perhaps you took it in a different light when I said" the mobile clerk gave me only one coupon (I had 3 movies)" that you thought the 3 movies were the Blus I was buying, not the DVDs I was trading in..

But you can kind of see my point now lol; that if you are required to do a phone eligibility test AND trade in a DVD to get a coupon, it made no point for the girl to see if I was phone eligible today when I clearly wasn't yesterday. Should've just taken the DVDs and handed me the coupons. Probably would've saved around 40 mins of time.

But I digress..I got the Blus I came to get, so all is well haha.

I just think if I do this promo again in the foreseeable days, I'm going to go to another BBY to avoid hassle and condescending looks.

I noticed in my store, that most of the triple packs are under the action genre, under T's.

Only one that wasn't there yesterday, was the Departed/Goodfellas/Aviator bundle; that was under "G's" in Drama.

Thanks for the heads up. With the new layout for the DVD/Blus shit has been extra hard to find this time!

At my store they are located in the genre of what the movies are and then are put in alphabetical order based on the first movie listed on the package.

Now that I think about it, I did see a few Triple Packs strewn around by different genre, based on the letter of the first film, like you said.

I believe the huge row of them under Action genre was because some employee decided to be lazy and just picked the generic "T" section haha.

Sadly...from what I hear, Best Buy isn't as rich a company as you'd think. There's word their B&M stores may go the route of Circuit City..

Personally I hope not, as Best Buy to me is one of those stores you can have fun browsing in, whether you're going there to buy something or not. Mine is literally only a quarter mile walk from my work, so I go there a lot on break and just browse around.

I'm actually dredding the day merchandising goes all online, because then you have the accursed ship times to endure.

Sites like Amazon are awesome, but sometimes, you just gotta have that item "now"!

Shawshank Redemption happens to be one of the best films ever made in my opinion, and a lot of other people. It is the story of a man who is wrongfully accused of the murder of his wife and her lover and he sentenced to life in prison. The story is told over several years and is about his friendship with his fellow inmates and what he goes through while there with the Warden, guards, and it all leads to a great ending. It is a compelling story and I highly recommend it.:bouncy:

Yeah, especially considering you don't need to do the upgrade check... that's supposed to be a separate coupon. This is like the 6th iteration of this deal so you'd think someone there would have a clue.

I had an easy time on my two runs this week... guy today even quickly fixed a price when I showed him the sale label
