It varies from store to store and from employee to employee, but most people seem to be to turn in almost anything as long as its not a burned DVD and has a cover art. I don't think the art and disc has to match.

From the previous sales, I've seen a few people who were successful doing that, so I put in an order yesterday for a bunch of $9.99 titles with the intention of trying it. Since there is a 14 day return policy (not sure if that's from the ORDER date, the SHIPPING date, or the estimated RECEIVED date), even if the store won't allow me to return & rebuy, I still have the option to just return them to the store.


It's actually 15 days, and it starts from the day you received the item. I had them clarify this for me a couple weeks back in anticipation for the U&S.

Awesome, I'm glad you confirmed this. I just placed an online order for three $9.99 Blu-rays that aren't available in-store. I love Upgrade & Save :)

And Borat it seems, since it's made to "look" like a burned copy. And because Best Buy is full of idiots.

It is pretty easy... All you have to do is find the person and give them your phone number (I think some other info for some carriers, but I know for Sprint it is just the #) for them to punch it in and see if you are eligible for an upgrade. It takes maybe 5 minutes tops.

It is always a nice alternative if you are like me and never find the dirt cheap movies at dollar stores/Big Lots/etc. and have a shrinking selection of DVDs to trade in.

Gonna stock up on some 3D movies next week, looks like Resident Evil Retribution 3D is going to be $15 after coupon, and I might get Silent Hill Revelations, but I only saw like half of it so I don't think I will. Really tempted by Prometheus 3D being the same price, but I already have the Blu Ray combo pack lol

This what I did last time instead of trading any DVD's in. One time an employee gave me 6 coupons for checking one phone number so I gave 3 of them to a customer that was looking at movies. You will need to have some patients will waiting for them helping other customers setting up their phone.

Why is it that the weekly ads aren't posted in this forum anymore? I was hoping to see if any good blu-rays will be on sale that I can combine with the U&S this go-round.

Thanks, but I'm mainly talking about newer blu-rays that might be on sale one week at a time (e.g., Skyfall). There used to be ads posted a few days early like in the VG Deals forum, but I guess people lost interest...?

I'll answer these again, but the first two questions were answered right in my post you quoted...

They are checking with the service provider to see if you're eligible for a phone upgrade.

Depends on the service provider, all providers require the cell #. Sprint only requires that.

I don't know if it is given to anyone. I think just put into the system to check, although I think one of the times they did ask me if I wanted them to send me a text when I was eligible.


Really wish The Departed, Se7en, and The Town were the steelbooks. I guess I'll have to see what's pictured in the ad.

Went alright for me. The first BB kinda freaked - they didn't know the promo was on and told me a horror story about last time upgrade and save ran. Somerhing about a blockbuster nearby that was closing. I was only trading five so their terror quickly subsided. They made me do everything at customer service which meant a lot of waiting.

I was denied Paul for some reason. Might have been the Fandango promo attached to it. I pretty much loathe Seth Rogen but I love Nick Frost and Simon Pegg so no biggie, I'll pick it up someday.

Got everything but Inglorious Bastards which I really wanted so I headed to another BB.

The second BB sent me to customer service and actually looked over the discs. This BB let me check out up front which worked much better.

Tried to stick with $9.99 movies but splurged a bit.

LA Confidential
There Will Be Blood
Star Trek 2009
Reservoir Dogs
Pulp Fiction
Inglorious Bastards
Attack the Block

Trek and Attack the Block were third string fillers. Everything else I want is still twenty bucks or more. I'm more of a $10 Blu Ray guy.

A lot of the members if not most see them at another forum where they are pretty much taken from and posted here. It always seemed like members here were not really interested in them by the time they were posted here.

If it would make you feel better you could pay the $8 ($13-5) and throw the DVD in the trash.

I only picked up 3 things today.
Airplane -$5
Lawrence of Arabia -$5
Patton/The Longest Day/The Sand Pebbles/Tora!Tora!Tora! -$15

I put back The Prophecy Collection once I saw it was made by Echo Bridge. Their stuff's not even worth $1/film.
