Got a decent haul:

Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Sin City
Departed/Goodfellas/Aviator
300/Troy/Alexander
Inglorious Bastards

All for $16 even, after coups and $10 RZ cert. inglorious oddly rang up $14.99, then when they fixed it, popped back to $9.99 after coupon, so they had to PM it to $4.99.

May go back tomorrow for Watchmen/Constantine/V for Vendetta, The Town, and A-Team

does bestbuy pull back stock during this promotion?

i went on thursday to pickup the steels i wanted in case the sale wouldnt extend and the racks were well stocked, but when i go today, literally at least 5 or 6 racks completely empty, soo weird

anyway i picked up Spiderman 3d steel($30), ET digibook($25), Raid redemption($10), and Total recall Mind Bend Edition ($5)

$74 with tax out the door

will have to go back tomorrow and tuesday to get enough coups to return/rebuy the 9 steels i got last week,

Can anyone tell me the difference if any in the Special Edition Inglorious Basterd vs. the Universal 100th Anniversary one?


Not sure about all of the bonus features, but the 100th anniversary have a digital copy.

I'd rcommend going sooner rather than later to get in on this, as my closest store's blu/dvd sections were a complete wreck with less than half of what I wanted to get available, and of the steelbooks I got, I got the last ones. Extremely limited selection on a lot of things.

Note that the Animal House version on sale for $9.99 is the BluRay only, not the Blu + DVD or the Universal 100th Anniversary which is Blu + Digital Copy.

They were also much more strict about handing out those $5 off coupons, only gave me one, marked 5 traded in on it, and stapled it to my trade in receipt.

With 5 "small electronic devices" that I had trade in for $25 total in GCs, plus 5 DVD trade ins, I got the following for tax of $2.17 total (all $9.99 before U&S):

Sherlock Holmes Game of Shadows steelcase
Green Lantern steelcase
Superman Returns steelcase
Wrath of the Titans steelcase
Taken

Soooooooooo.....are the Lord of the Rings Steelbooks currently $9.99? I can't seem to find them on best buy's website.


Nope $14.99 in store. There are a few of the other SteelBOOKS that are still $9.99 though.

No voucher or anything else in the case besides the digital copy disc and Blu disc.

My best buy actually had a bunch of stuff that I thought was online only... even stuff I had looked at this morning and it wouldn't let me do find in stores. I'm going to have to go back tomorrow for more.

I got the last copy of Fightclub, Departed/Goodfellas/Aviator combo (couldnt find the departed steelcase like i wanted to), V for Vendetta/Watchmen/Constantine combo, and Inception Steelbook.

Most of the blurays were cleared out when I went. I had to scrounge around for awhile to find the movies I wanted. I'll probably hit up a different best buy tomorrow to see what they have. I still have plenty of DVDs from Dollar Tree left over =)


Posts like these make me so happy to not live in a high profile area, or some huge city.

Most any item I EVER want that seems to be hard to find at BBY (exclusives, CE's, steel books), I can find it at mine. Everything is usually plentifully stocked, and rarely anything except new release items (Apple products come to mind) sell out on release day/week.

Bummer for some of you guys...wish y'all could've gotten all the hauls you were looking forward to.

I actually forgot I picked up Superman Returns/Departed Steelbook a month back.

Wooo, I can return and rebuy them for half off.

Thinking of picking up the Chuck seasons if I can find them.

I've never watched it so any two cents on whether or not I should get it or avoid them?

Yes, I bought the Departed twice. One of my all time favorite movies so I had to get the steelbook at the second best buy after not finding it the first time. :D

My haul for today:

Green Lantern Steelbook
Clash of the Titans Steelbook
Wrath of the Titans Steelbook
Superman Triple pack
The Woman in Black

When I went to check out the girl only the scanned my coupon once and I had to tell her to do it for each Bluray, obviously not knowing how the U&S works she then gave me back my receipt and coupon. Guess I will be going back without having to trade in anything.

Picked up Big Lebowski, Batman Begins Steelbook and Inception Steelbook, but it appears they didn't scan Inception so I suppose it's on the house. Also got :360: Prototype 2 just because. Total was $27.XX :D

Couldn't find Zombieland in bluray format. DVD only :(

Edit: Apparently Zombieland is in stock @ my local store, but I couldn't find it anywhere. I literally spent 35 minutes looking around for it and some others. And the Truth/Justice Edition of Boondock Saints is on sale? Shit. I thought it was $24.99, no signs were up and nobody around to scan it.. didn't want to deny it if it was too rich for my blood at the register.

Chuck is a really fun show. Season 1 is full of potential, but very rough. Season 2 is much better and Season 3 rocked. Season 4 was up and down, while Season 5 tried to change the status quo and some argue they did too much.

Ahh, very nice!

And I agree with The Departed, great movie! I procrastinated this long before buying it, because I still had the original DVD steelbook back when it came out to BBY years ago.

Would've liked the steelbook, but who am I kidding, 2 other Scorcese movies with it for only $5? Had to do the triple pack haha.

I honestly may go back and try to get the Kubrick triple feature and the Watchmen one...even if the movies aren't that that good in some of the packs, 3 Blus for $5 is just a great deal any way you look at it. I just wish the ones I bought still had their respective slipcover... The only 300/Troy/Alexander one was all ripped to hell, so I just got a normal shrink wrapped copy. The Twister triple feature had plentyyyy of slipcover copies..pssht.

Only movie I wanted but my BBY DIDN'T have (unlike most other things aha..), was the Book of Eli steelbook.

If anyone's store has one...I'd gladly pay someone to get it for me.

I'm sure it has already been answered but I did not see it in the last couple of pages so apologizes if I overlooked it but I have a quick question:

Today I bought "Looper" for $20 after the discount code. If "Looper" goes on sale 3 weeks for now for $20, would I be able to go back to Best Buy and price match this so I would only have to pay $15 or would I have to return the item and rebuy "Looper" to receive the deal? Also, if I do have to return the original "Looper" to take part in the better deal, would they be able to give me back a coupon since I already gave them a DVD and after returning the item, did not use it?

You can pricematch if it goes on sale while the coupons are still valid. If it goes on sale after the coupon expires then generally no you won't get anything back unless it drops below what you paid, if it went on sale for $17.99 you'd get $2.00 back if you paid $19.99. No you won't get any coupons back, same as any other store once you use the coupon it is gone, besides at that point it would be expired anyway. Now of course someone will tell you I am wrong but that is because everything at Best Buy can be YMMV.

Sure. Go get employed by them and you'll figure out how it works.

Why don't you either call the store with the SKU # for the product or ask them in-store to check it in RSS? That's what the employees are there to do, help answer a question.

I'm sure if you just started to use one of the employee PCs in trying to do what you're proposing, you'd be asked to leave at best and permanently removed from the store at worst.
