I got 10 things (they let me do 2 transactions). They actually had quite a few things they didn't have recently that I thought was only available online.

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.



Have you watched Attack the Block yet, or were you interested but not necessarily in the market for it? It's definitely high up on my list. Great film.

Oh, and just a heads up, the copy of The Thing I picked up was $12.99, although it was in the area with the $9.99 shelf tag. I didn't want to cause a stir, as the girl gave me my coupons back, but the sku for the copy I picked up was: 8822096

I was surprised that my BB had several movies that according to the website said "not available in stores" as well. They only had The Sandlot on DVD, but I was able to grab, Warrior, Miracle, and Coyote Ugly for about $16 total. I was also going to pick up the Walk The Line/Crazy Heart combo...but after waiting in line 15 minutes for the cell phone upgrade check, the girl told me "we haven't done that promotion in months". I tried mentioning that I heard it started back today, and she just asked her co-worker next to her who repeated the same thing. Has anyone actually confirmed that that is going on again? I saw the post in this thread, but I tried looking on Bestbuy.com and haven't found anything for it.

This was my haul from today (prices before discount):

The Amazing Spider-Man 3D $19.99
Avatar 3D $19.99
Coraline 3D $19.99
Hotel Transylvania 3D $19.99
Hugo 3D $14.99
I, Robot 3D $19.99
Prometheus 3D $19.99
Under the Seas 3D $14.99

Need to track down Dredd 3D and Abe Lincoln Vampire Killer 3D. Will probably get The Lorax 3D and Despicable Me 3D too. All should be $19.99.

I need to get 2-3 more DVDs at least. Any stores have $0.50 DVDs?

Please forgive me if this has been asked before- Do you have to use the coupons the same day you get them, and if not, how long until they do expire?

I had a great easy transaction today. traded in 5 old dvds and got all 5 Resident Evil movies for $50. I'd like to trade more dvds in during the week, but wont have money to buy more blu rays until Friday.

Thanks.

Nope, you can hoard coupons as long as you want as long as you use them by May 11th.

So. You were AT the store and didn't ask? Best Buys can be so random, even with some store policies. You'd be better off asking that specific store. I thought I read contradicting answers toward that question a while ago.

Yeah, this promo has gotten a bit inconsistent. They don't even do the coupons anymore (or at least the little cards like they used to). All I got was a printed receipt, indicating that I had traded in 3 DVDs. The guy at the customer service desk also told me to remind the cashiers to just use the SKU# in case they had forgotten how to do the promo.

They had the coupons at the store I went to today, but the last two times they didn't have them. Inconsistent is the perfect word for U&S.

Daaaaamn...that's exactly what I wanted. Amazing deal with the MFC to boot. My store only had the old version of the DVD. I really hate how they organize by genre now though. Did you find that in the "family" section?

They have to if you buy the Blu-ray + DVD combo pack because it says "Manufacturer Coupon" not Walmart only. It has the bar code that the manufacturer scans to pay the retailer back.

You only need the receipt but they are obligated to give you a coupon. Some stores who do not have the cards just print them out.

Do you guys know if there will be a free ticket promotion for the upcoming Superman movie? I'd like to use the $5 coupon towards Superman Returns or one of the animated movies if this happened.

What's the current price for Django Unchained?

Not sure which you're talking about, but there was a Hansel and Gretel released on bluray several years ago. I assume you're thinking of a different one.

Probably the new one with Jeremy Renner.
