Posted 19 January 2013 - 01:37 AM

Grabbed these today:

Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D (w/slipcover, yay) - $9.99
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island 3D (also w/slipcover) - $9.99
Romeo & Juliet - $4.99
Princess Bride - $4.99
Inception - $4.99

Unless a bunch of Disney/Pixar 3D stuff goes on sale, I'll probably just pick up one more batch of $4.99 movies this time around.

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.

- I only saw The Two Towers Steelbook at my local store, but it was NOT the EE. I forgot what the back of the box said, but one disc is the movie and the second disc is either special features or the DVD. The EE is two discs for the movie.

Can someone please verify to see if 'Hangover 1 & 2' are two discs in one package? What's the SKU for it?

Thank you.

Well, this has been pretty disappointing since I'm mostly looking for deals on newer releases for ~$10. That and they've mixed all the DVDs with BDs now, so browsing the selection is cumbersome and less extensive now. Too many times I thought, finally a deal just to realize it was the DVD price. Not sure I'll end up picking anything up this time, which is a shame.

I went today and my store was restocked. I went 5 days ago and everything was cleaned out, like empty shelves cleaned out. Managed to pick up three of the triple feature DVD's for $5 each. 9 Blu-rays for $15+tax. Can't complain! Now a couple of the movies in the triple features I own on DVD so going back tomorrow to trade them in.

But yes, at least my store restocked so it's worth checking back.

If your referring to the steel book's, its just the blu ray disc inside. Not sure what the sku's are though.

I still think it's stupid that a slipcover will change the sku for Planes, Trains & Automobiles. You can easily take the slip off and put and put it on the same movie without the stickered barcode.

I had a giftcard I won at a raffle at work. 50 dollar bestbuy giftcard came at the right time. I used it towards...

lord of the rings trilogy extended edition (basicly ate up most of the giftcard), then I got the first three shrek moves, the bluray/dvd combo packs. after the coupon each was 9.99-- my niece wants to watch these every time she visits, so I feel good about the price.

little over 30 out of pocked for all of it. hooray

Separate packages on all fronts. They're just both on sale and both have Steelbooks.

If you really want a good deal, check your local Walmart. I got Hangover/Hangover 2/Due Date triple feature there a month or so ago for $9!

Wasn't even on sale from what I could tell.

Today I got:

300/Troy/Alexander
V for Vendetta/Watchmen/Constantine (now the only triple pack I own without the slipcover. My OCD is making me twitch beyond belief right now)
Animal House
Blues Brothers
Shooter

I may go back for Scarface and Training Day/John Q/Pelican Brief, but I think I'm getting to the point where there's no more cheapies I'm interested in.

I feel your pain..

They only had 1 slip covered 300/Troy/Alexander at my store, and the "seams" were literally ripped open. How that happened, I have no earthly idea...but I really wish it hadn't been that way. Ended up getting a non slip instead.

Went to my other local-ish store a couple days later and they had 3 with slips all mint condition :roll:

I have picked up 15 movies so far, will probably go in next week to get a few more. Everything was $4.99 except Taken 2. I wish the store by me had more of the steelbooks, all I could find were the Sherlocks and The Matrix. All of the triple packs I bought even had the slipcovers, so if someone wants to buy those off me just send me a PM as I don't care for slipcovers at all.

Training Day/John Q/The Pelican Brief
American History X/A History of Violence/True Romance
16 Blocks/The Last Boy Scout/Last Man Standing
Beetlejuice/Charlie and the Chocolate Factory/Corpse Bride

They must have sent it to my store, because I noticed a ripped up slipcover on the same set today in my store.

I wonder if I can get rain checks on some of these Steelbooks, then again I dont know if they have plans to restock them. The closest best buys outside of my city are 50 and 75 miles away so unless i am going there for other reason driving down to see if they have steelbooks of the ones im missing is insane.

My OCD for my blu-ray isnt slipcovers it's uniform height. My father in law bought my son Cars 2 blu-ray in the DVD case and it has been driving me nut, so I spent 9 dollars for an empty steelbook case just to transfer it into. Don't get me started about Funimation, I want to curse the whole company for putting blu-rays in DVD cases.

Blame Best Buy and FYE, as they only recently started putting them in the Anime section rather than mixed with the regular Blu-rays.

Personally, I don't like it when FUNi makes a long slipcover to make the Blu-ray case DVD size. They rarely do anything special with their slipcovers, but it still irks me almost as much as their insistance on combo packs.

Question on triple packs. I assume all three movies are on one disc. Is there a quality downgrade to these or is the GBs the same per movie as if they were on a disc of there own?

Thanks for everyone's comments. Bought 7 with this deal so far but am having trouble finding any more that I don't already have/want. Hard to pass up buying for $5 on many blus but I have now started buying some that got not so great reviews on Hi-Def digest. Guess for $5 I can handle it.

The triple packs are 3 separate discs in one case. They're the same quality as the standalone Bluray you might buy of the same title, just consolidated.

Man, I didn't know how much work this would be. I already traded in 80 dvd's. Had to trade in 15 a day at 3 different locations cause they only allow you to trade 5 at a go. The trading part is getting better cause the reps are getting used to it but the wait times on the customer service lines are what's killing me. the worst part is when I find another DVD in my house and I'm like "man..." my anal retentive side makes me want to trade it in. Spent over $400 on steelbooks. they actually look damn cool lined up. Could use them as wall decorations or something.

Holy crap. That's a lot of trade-ins. I've only done 15 trade ins so far. There aren't that many $10 blus that I want to pick up. And there are no steelbooks in my area besides an ungodly amount of The Matrix.

If any of you are near the Downey,CA store, they have ONE LOTR Return of the king steelbooks left. I should have hid it for you guys I'm sorry. I left it in front of the Extended Edition packs.

The only other steelbooks that store had left were sherlock holmes, batman begins, dark knight, and shawshank. I bought the last Matrix one. This is as of 11:45 AM Pacific time.

Thanks, tokerblue. My store still has a few steelcases left, but now I have to decide whether or not I want to get them or hold out for the extended editions. Hmm...this decision would be easier if they were 10$ and not 15$.

agreed if the LOTR steels were $10, id have double dipped and gotten them at $5 a piece after coup even though i own the extended edition set

one of my stores is actually well stocked on the LOTR steels too on all 3 movies
