Best Buy Upgrade & Save - Now With 100% More Wikification!!

How does it work?
Trade in ANY DVD (except for porn, you weirdos) and get a $5 off coupon towards any Blu-Ray priced $9.99 or above.
Yes, ANY DVD - this includes things you bought at the Dollar Store, individual discs from compilations or TV shows, and ex-rentals from Blockbuster (RIP).
Cases and artwork aren't required, but it definitely increases the acceptance rate if you're bringing in disc four of Sanford & Son's third season.

Wait, that's it? There has to be more to it, right?
Well, not really. It's pretty simple.
Step 1. Trade in DVD's for $5 off coupons.
Step 2. ???
Step 3. Profit!

The usual FAQ/tips/etc.
Coupons are 1:1 - for each DVD traded, one coupon is given.
Coupons don't have to be used at time of trade in.
Coupons do not stack with each other. No combining U&S coupons for $40 off of the Star Wars box set.
Coupons MAY stack with price matches, manufacturer coupons, and current Best Buy promos. YMMV, ya know?
Discounts are taken from the selling price of the Blu-Ray $9.99 or higher. $9.99 becomes $4.99, $12.99 becomes $7.99, and so on. $4.99 Blu-Rays are still $4.99 though.
Coupons are B&M only - must be redeemed in-store.

Since this is a wiki post now, feel free to add in suggested titles (I prefer those $9.99 gems or sale items that become $4.99 after coupon, but to each their own) down below.

For a pretty comprehensive list, go here -> WV Matsui to the rescue! You should all give him a dollar.

How does it work? Is it as painful as trading in games? Or do you just hand them a DVD and then they hand you a coupon?

Yup just hand in the DVD and get the coupon but coupon only good for that day.

Actually, the coupon is good for the entire sale period, but you need your receipt. It cannot be used online. Must be on a Blu-ray $9.99 and up. The DVD must have a cover art and cannot be burned.

Also, the various processes and the like are subject to heavy YMMV from store to store.

Best strategy is to bring in 5 DVDs, grab 5 Blu-rays, then head to customer service.

OP if you could make the first post a wiki when we get close so we can add all the $5 titles, rules and upcoming ads that would be great :)

Here is how it's supposed to go down (emphasis on "supposed"):

1) Customer brings in up to 5 non-burned DVDs with cover art. ("Nobody wants these things on eBay and FYE will only give me 25 cents! Help!")
2) Best Buy rep checks to see if DVDs qualify. ("Has a cover? Check. There a non-purple disc in there? Check. Huzzah!")
3) BB rep opens Upgrade & Save program and scans in up to 5 coupons. ("Scanny scan scanman!")
4) Receipt prints out and is stapled to coupons before given to customer. ("You got a receipt! It comes with 5 coupons! Lucky!")
5) Customer picks out Blu-ray movies $9.99 or higher. ("X-Men trilogy on sale!? Sign me up, bub!")
5a) A movie the customer wanted is out of stock. ("No Last Stand!? Oh noes! O_O How can this be!?")
6) Customer brings movies up to cashier and hands over coupons+receipt. ("This proves I didn't distract the rep with my amazing good looks and swiped a bunch sitting on the desk.")
7) Cashier scans one coupon per Blu-ray. ("Activate coupon POWA!!")
7a) Customer keeps any unused coupons. ("I wanted to spend money....")
8) Register takes $5 each qualifying item and cashier pays total. ("$5 for the awesome power of the High-Def Experience? Amazing! :D")
9) Customer goes to another Best Buy to grab missing movie. ("You are mine, you sexy Wolvie!")
10) Customer gives cashier remaining coupon and receipt. ("See? I am an honest cheapskate!")
11) Customer pays and does Kirby Dance. (" <(*_*<) <(*_*)> (>*_*)> Oh yea. Still got it.")

I have DVD's ready to go, but will they have Blu Rays ready to buy?

Hoping they have a sale on the Dark Knight Rises steelbook. I can't think of anything else I want.

I'm sorry to ask, and i'm sure it has before. Does the $5 Of and Amazon Price Matching work together?

It is a YMMV situation. More then likely they will make you choose. The PM or use the coupon. Unless you get a cashier that doesn't care.

I can't wait for this, just will need to go through my dvds now and find ones I wont be watching anymore, also when this sale starts, it will be just in time for me to get a 50 dollar visa card rebate back from my Norton purchase on newegg.com
