So I've been selling all my DVD's on Ebay (the one's that actually have retained value) and now all the one's that don't have any value on Ebay are going towards this upgrade and save. I've been buying all the steelbooks I can. If you flip them on ebay they go for 10-15 bucks so you'll make a profit of 4-8 dollars minus fees . My question is do you think they will go up in value in a year or down? I plan to keep them for a year and worst case I give people shawshank redemption steelbook for christmas or birthday present. medium case I sell for ten bucks on ebay. Best case they go up in price to 25-30 and I make bank on crappy DVD's that would have cost me money to sell on ebay.


What DVDs have value???

DVDs that aren't likely to get Blu-rays anytime soon (like about 90% of TV shows).

you'd be suprised. check ebay. I sold the evil dead limited edition mask for 50 bucks. It went down in price but now that it's getting rare it just went up. I also had a def jam comedy that went up to 150 bucks for the whole shebang. There are a lot of DVD's that have not been re-issued and are impossible to get only on the secondary market. The thing about this is that you may sell something now for profit only to see it go up even more. I sold my Chrono Trigger and Earthbound Super Nintendo games and thought I was making money at a 100 a pop 7 years ago and now they are like 500-1000 bucks!!!!!!!!

Got 5 more today:

Shawshank Redemption steelbook
Oceans trilogy
Taken 2
Romeo & Juliet
Sin City (seriously never seen this movie, figured it was finally time to give it a shot)

Working next door to a Best Buy in the same shopping center is great for me, terrible for my wallet. Going back tomorrow for round 3. I need a new DVD/Blu Ray shelf.

Off topic but not really: For those of you who buy steelbooks (and open them and keep them for yourself, not leave them sealed to resell) do you keep the back insert that's glued onto it to keep the back of the case from getting scratched? Or toss it and take your chances?

I pry open the case and use the insert as inner artwork.

I sold my original Tron dvd a few months before the Tron: Legacy came out for about $100. Got the same out of my Nightmare Before Christmas dvd before they put that on blu. And a little different, but I sold my complete set of Cardcaptor Sakura dvds for close to $500 and this was after they had already been re-released on blu for about $50 for the set. So yeah, you'd be surprised. ;)

Picked up some more:

North by Northwest (rang up $14.99, CS lady had to override to $4.99 because the coupon didn't apply with an override to $9.99)
Watchmen: Director's Cut
Hook
Get the Gringo
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows Steelbook
Casino Royale

Also saw Inside Man but apparently there are two SKUs, and the one in the CinemaNow display at the store is the $7.99 version. Didn't bother trying to get it changed.

I finally cashed in that $25 code from Christmas and about $25 worth of RZ GC's. Combined that with a little left over from a gift card and the Upgrade and Save and I paid $15 out of pocket for these:

Avengers (combo pack)
Dark Knight Rises (combo pack)
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (3D combo pack)
Taken (blu-ray)
Superman/Superman II Donner Cut/Superman Returns (blu-ray)

I think it was a pretty good haul. Funny how Abe Lincoln was on sale for $20 in the 3D combo but still $25 in the regular blu-ray combo...

Yeah, I pulled it straight from their site. Even verified the SKU when I found it on the shelf. When it rang up $14.99, the lady offered to price match the site if I could show her.

Here's the link, and the SKU is 7552099 (7 digits, so should be good for Express Lane):

Could someone post the sku for the superman triple feature? I've looked everywhere online I could think of but can't find it.
Nevermind, found it-6934294. Ordering it online and doing a return/rebuy in store with the coupon.

I found a copy or Children of Men stuffed behind a bunch of other movies on an endcap. Unfortunately, the $10 versions of Big Lebowski and North by Northwest aren't in stock at the closest store. Using a couple gallons of gas and a DVD to save $5 doesn't make a lot of sense.

Made another run and traded in another 5 DVDs. Only used 4 of the coupons as one selection ended up being on sale for $7.99.

I got (after coupon):

Taxi Driver ($9.99)
Edward Scissorhands ($7.99)
The Social Network ($4.99)
The Kite Runner ($4.99)

And without coupons:

Cinderella Man ($6.99)
Master and Commander ($7.99)
The Green Mile ($7.99)

I'll make at least one more run before the promo is out and use the extra coupon and at the least trade in my DVD copies of Cinderella Man and Edward Scissorhands. Was hoping to grab LA Confidential as I traded that in--saw a couple copies the last time I was in there, but already had five I wanted more that trip.

if you dont mind me asking what condition was the evil dead dvd you sold?? i have the book of the dead editions of 1 and 2, and never even thought to sell them since they are 2 of my favorite movies, but i see them on ebay going for between 50-75 dollars a piece. i might have to. anyone with knowledge of things like this, would it be better to sell them together or seperately?

Crap. The Inception Steelbook only comes with one disc, even though the package says that it has the same Special Features as the original release. So I'll have to cannibalize my original BluRay to have a complete version. Since the Steelbook only has a slot for one disc, I'll have to put them in a sleeve. The disc itself also has a different coating than the original.

Well I'm not gonna unseal any the steelbook I get, just watch the originals, and keep them sealed for collectable reasons.

And I just refuse to shop at Wal-Mart period.

I'm not a big cheap ass these days. These promotions are more about getting rid of DVDs than finding Blus at rock bottom prices for me. Of course it's great to do both. But I just like getting $5 for a DVD rather than just giving it to a friend or donating it.

Earlier in this thread, someone mentioned that they thought that the Best Buy Lord of the Rings steel cases were extended editions...can anyone confirm whether or not this is true? (I read a few pages further and didn't see a definitive answer)

I didn't pick these up before as I thought/assumed they were the normal edition.
