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


My store was loaded with copies for all 3 movies a week ago...but today, there was only one Fellowship of the Ring left and only a handful of Two Towers/Return of the King...I snagged the last Fellowship, but now that I know it's not extended edition, debating whether or not I want to keep it or just get some other movies.

Maybe I'll try the dollar store strategy and use some trade in and save coupons. I've never participated in the promo before, so I feel like this is a CAG merit badge that I have to earn ;).

- If there were any in CT, I would pick up the Steelbook LOTR simply to store my EE versions. :)

- Inferior due to green tint? Yes. I've been a very vocal critic about the picture quality on the EE. The other problem is the the TE version has it's own issues with edge enhancement and DNR.

I also think that the EE content is vastly superior to the TE cut.

So all the steelbooks only have one spot to hold a disc? Thinking about swapping out some of my movies for the steelbooks but movies but some of them are combo packs.

Yep, only one disc. Hence why Best Buy can sell them so cheap.

Am I the only one who couldn't really find more than 5 Blu-rays to use the coupon on? Then again, the only Steels I was interested in is Batman Begins (which I got last time and still haven't touched) and Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows (on release date, dumped the first film in that case as well). Not really interested in any of the other movies.

Can you price match a blu ray from somewhere else (target/amazon/etc) before applying the $5 coupon?
I've never traded in a dvd before.

Is that $9.99 Amadeus a digipak or digibook? The ones at my local best buy aren't in normal blu ray cases, but bestbuy.com has 3 different skus for Amadeus blu-rays so I'm not sure. Amazon is selling a digibook version, but the ones at my best buy did not seem to be digibooks. They kinda looked like an all plastic case like the Taxi Driver digipak so I'm a bit confused.

I paid $4.99 for my Amadeus as well. It came in a normal blu-ray case.

Sorry those are ones my store doesnt have. I got 13 of the steelbooks this week, but I still need both of those. I did find a Book of Eli buried behind a stack of regular ones.

I ended up picking up five more blus today:

Apollo 13
Departed Steelbook
Matrix Steelbook
Shawshank Redemption Steelbook
Inception Steelbook

I am not even really sure why I picked up the steelbooks, just too tempting for $4.99 plus the $.25 dvd. Too bad I think I have cleaned out the dollar trees around me of the $.25 dvds. This brings me up to 20 blu-rays for the week and I should be down save for some new releases.

Picked up today

Dredd (2011)
Monty python & the holy Grail
A Harold & kumar Christmas 3D
Taken 2 combo (couldn't find any tshirts)

Was going to get the Stallone 3pack but was $10 more than I thought it was...

So are the floor associates now just trained to do phone upgrades rather than know what they have or have the incentive to find out if they have it?

ended up at best buy last night so i took another look. sure enough, they were the $30 digibooks. the $10 regular blu-ray was sold out so i'll probably pick it up from another location.

I found one and it rang up $14.99. They had to get a manager to do a manual override to give me $5 back. It has the same sku as the $9.99 one online so it makes no fucking sense why it rang up $14.99.

It was the only copy in the store but I found it just yesterday. You might still find one. Mine was in the Drama section.

I just could not pull the trigger on some of the triple feature titles. I think this has to be a mild form of ocd for me. I did buy the tmnt pack, oceans and austin powers. see those I could buy because they are all part of the same franchise. the others I just can't do.

did find book of eli and shawshank steelbook. shawshank makes a nice edition to the digibook I have.

The Departed SKU: 6932757

I cannot find the item pages and the usual url trick is not working for store locator, but you can call and give them the SKU's and they will verify stock.

I traded in three austin powers movies, and music and lyrics. I bought the austin powers 3 movie colleciton, the tim burton 3 movie collection, and the drew barrymore collection (mostly for music and lyrics and wedding singer) and annie on blu-ray. It ended up costing me $20 total

Are the .25 cent dvds pretty common at most dollar trees? I'm thinking about checking it out as I'm out of extra/junk dvds to trade in around the house.

i have OCD, but that's not what i'm picky about. I'm more worried about full individual cover art or the condensed triple feature artwork.

Most of the time I don't have a problem with the triple pack since it's cheaper overall, but I did have to think about the Ocean's gift set for $10 or rebuying the Ocean's triple feature for essentially $5. I ended up keeping the gift set.

Also had to think about the Austin Powers triple pack, but I already picked up all 3 Austin Powers movies individually for $5 each from a different U&S, so passed on the triple pack.

I don't know, but I went to 3 dollar trees and nothing local to me for 0.25 dvds or any dvds at all.

Ended up finding some dvds around the house. Picked up Fight Club, Tropic Thunder, Zombieland, Sin City, and The Hangover for $25 out the door. Was hoping to get the lord of the rings movies, but all they had was return of the king. May check out another best buy in the area tomorrow to see if I can find them.

I'm officially done for the month. Even at 5 bucks a pop it adds up. Hopefully on the 1st there will be some new ones at my store to buy.
