Can anyone confirm that this works?


People have gone back and forth on this. I think the gist is that you tell the clerk not to process your order through the system and ring you out regularly thru a new transaction. Then after 7 days the in-store pick up just drops off and your form of payment gets credited. I definitely wouldn't use any kind of GC's or RZ Certs on that kind of deal though.

IDK, I'd say its not so YMMV if you kept them sealed and physically brought them back, do a return / rebuy and as long as the price didn't increase from the initial $9.99. No harm no foul there. My guess is 'thingsfallnapart' is just being cautious as to his store maybe only having one copy left of wanted titles.


I have been told by associates that a return/rebuy is a bad thing for online purchases, as you have to wait 24 or 48 hours to do the return. If you cancel the online order with them at the store, you can then buy the item in store without any real hassle or delay.

If I am interpreting you guys correctly, you are wondering whether you could order some stuff for store pickup now, then go to get them next week when U&S has started? I do this all the time and use gift cards/reward zone certificates freely. When you go to customer service, just tell them you want to cancel the order and pay for it now using the coupon. I have always gotten an email immdeiately telling me that the store pickup order was cancelled. I've never had anyone give me a problem over doing this. What you don't want to do is complete your store pickup and then do a return/rebuy because it takes a few hours for your refund to process (unless you don't mind double paying for a few hours).

Most of those you will pay more for shipping than the actual sale. Pirates on Blu-ray is often going for under $15, so you will not get much for your set. I tried selling mine on eBay for $0.99 but after about 4 months I gave up.

Here's an early heads up on some movies that will be $5 after coupon. The date is the last day to get them on sale and for $5.

2/9
Lord of the Rings 1-3

Is this the individual movies, or all three in one set? I'm guessing it's the former, but it's a steal if it's the latter.

Between all of the junk DVD's I've picked up for .25 over the past few months in anticipation of this promo, and the junk electronics I'm trading in this week (for the $5 promo), I'm going to be boosting my Blu collection for next to nothing.

They've never checked anything beyond glancing at the covers and counting how many before giving me coupons.

They do check if there's a disc in the case and that it's not porn/burned disc. Other than that, they don't care.

I know some of the crap I've picked up from Dollar Tree looks like something I created on my own and they gave me the sideways stare on it, though they still took them in without any real issue.

Assuming they stay $9.99, they are also eligible for the coupon.

Mine has never opened the case to check for the disc. Just had lazy reps I guess!

Just a heads up if you're looking for cheap DVDs. Walmart has a few DVDs for $4.00 that come with $7.50 in movie money for a WB movie. I know you can get DVDs for cheaper than $4.00 but I figure it's a nice bonus to get $7.50 in movie money as well. Here's the link to more information about the promotion:

www.activaterewards.com/wbboxingday2012

The DVDs can be found in the electronics dept. in the middle. They also have a few Blu's for $7.88 with the same $7.50 movie money promotion.

I looked around a few Walmarts, but couldn't find these. Are they in a bin, or on a wall with a "Clearance" sign on them, or what? Also, if the DVDs are so cheap, doesn't that mean they are old DVDs and therefore have an expired voucher? And does anybody have a list of said cheap movies so I know what I'm looking for?

At both stores I went to they were in one of those cardboard stands right in front of the Electronics registers. The DVDs may be old but the Movie Money codes are still good till February I think. I redeemed both of mine last week in anticipation of Gangster Squad.

Some of the titles I saw were:
Journey 2 the Mysterious Island, Clash of the Titans, New Years Eve, others.

Hopefully that helps.

If they go up to more than $15, it would be better to buy them now at $10. If they go up to $15, it would be waste of a coupon to buy them next week when they'd already be $10 this week.

I'd suggest getting what you want this week and wait to see how they price out next week. You're guaranteed to get them at $10 now and if they're still $10 after Sunday, do a return-and-rebuy on the ones you picked up.
