I didn't see this posted, but if anyone happens to still have a Blockbuster nearby, they are doing a B1G1 on used DVDs and Blurays. Sale ends 1/28/13, thanks trailmix10!

The prices aren't outrageous IMO, especially with the sale. Highest I saw was $12.99 for blurays, but there might have been higher ones I just didn't notice.

Pretty good selection, too. I was looking for a cheap Death Race 2 and found it for $6.99 (surprised I actually found what I was looking for.) I paired that with The Town on bluray and walked out with both for $7 plus tax. I saw tons of newer-ish stuff like Avengers, Dark Knight Rises, Ted, American Reunion, Total Recall, etc. for $12.99.

How are the cases? I've seen people buy blus from Blockbuster and the cases were DVD cases with printed out art. Looked awful.

They look just fine once you take the art out of the case and put it in a replacement blu-ray case.

I was disappointed in my local store today, the manager has clearly stopped trying. I found a case in the blu ray section that had the cover art for the Fantasia/Fantasia 2000 4 disc set marked at $17. I went up and asked him if it had all four discs, or was it just the blu rays.

"FOUR DISCS?! No, there's NO way it has FOUR discs, it's just the one."
"Well, it's two movies, so shouldn't it have at least two of them?"
He then slams the other movies I'd brought up on the counter, whips out a knife and cuts open the security tab (a little black sticker seal I've not seen them use before) cranks open the case and says "See? ONE disc."

It was the DVD of Fantasia 2000. :roll:

It's a shame, because I would have liked a cheap copy of Moonrise Kingdom, but after that I had no interest in giving them my money anymore.

Went today and picked up a ton of great blu-ray movies. Also found out that all Oklahoma locations will start the closing process on February 10 and will be closed by the beginning of March. Definitely disappointed because Blockbuster has always had some amazing sales like this one.

Can you blame him? It has to be the worst place to work. Why bother caring or being nice and friendly and helpful when all that work won't get you not fired. They can't fire you, because they can't replace you, no one wants a job for a week before the store closes.

They should ave started to switch over to becoming a Gamestop and a Radio Shack or Best Buy Mobile in one type of store 15 years ago. For the life of me I don't know why Dish bothered buying them.

Dish bought them for the liquidation cash, the tax writeoff, the brand name, and the chance to market Dish to all of Blockbuster's customer base. They probably made their money back signing people up for Dish before they did the first wave of closings.

Gamestop will be the next to go as more people start downloading games vs. buying discs and/or the console makers start using codes that prevent reselling games kind of like PC games use.

I grabbed Prometheus, MIB3, Brave, and Lockout for 26. I asked if they had some extra blu-ray cases, and they just gave them to me. I also asked when the sale ended, and they said it ended today.

Picked up DVD copies of Expendables 2 & Amazing Spiderman for $10.xx total - not too shabby!

Also of interest to note - my Blockbuster started offering a "Manager Special - $1 Clearance" table full of single disc DVDs with no cases. Merchandised in a way similar to closing Blockbusters the past 2 years. Maybe they're trying to clear their stock early to make room for more single discs come closing time? :/

My Blockbuster had copies of Brave and even had the bonus discs and original cases but wouldn't part with them because they were "reserves for when/if all the previously viewed copies that were pulled get sold out." They had about 25 cases in their drawer, but oh well.

Picked up Drive, Rampart, Let Me In, and District 9 for $18. Not too bad, and as far as I could tell they all had bonus features on disc.

His store isn't closing. He will continue to manage that same store after this round of closings, and will still be accountable for his actions.

Anyway, I decided to stop in after work today to get Moonrise Kingdom. I'm glad I did because they added copies of The Pirates: Band of Misfits to the shelves. I got both movies on blu ray for $13. As for that copy of Fantasia, it was still listed as all four discs and was still on the shelves with the blu rays.

New Egg has a pack of 25 Verbatim Blu-Ray cases for $11.59 and $4.99 shipping if you're not a Shoprunner member. I bought a pack last week and they're fine. I've also bought from sellers on Amazon and eBay with comparable prices in the past. Look for products by Square Deal Recordings and Supplies. They sell single disc cases in packs as small as 5, and also have 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 disc BD cases. I need to pick up a few 2-disc cases actually.

My BD haul at BB was The Sitter, Spider-Man 3, Beetlejuice and Ghost Rider 2 for $20. Since it's been extended I might go back.

I just got off the phone with my local store which is closing and going to stop renting around Feb. 10, close for a day or two then start the final clearance. They said it was extended indefinitely. I don't know if they're doing it until the doors close for good or not, but I think at least another week is a safe bet.

The one near me(KC MO, on 64th and 29) is closing its doors on March 3. They have a sale going now similar to all that's been posted already, with tables of DVD's in paper sleeves for 99cents. All the stuff that has cases is still on the shelves and was priced at $9.99. Each Monday between now and closing time, they are marking all down even further(20% or something each week). Unfortuantely the games aren't included with the sale.
Fortune and glory kid, fortune and glory...
