BB went through a phase a couple of years ago where they changed their movie media square footage and handed off management of that part of the store to a third party.  At the time that happened, they stopped with Upgrade-And-Save, which was that $5 promotion for recycling/trading-in DVDs.

 

You can check Amazon for options on cheaper movies, including the Used section, plus GoHastings as you mentioned before.

I didn't realize they had outsourced it to a third party.  That explains the poor decision (IMO) to integrate the BR's with the DVD's.  It's too bad they ended U&S because I certainly spend less money on BR's at BB now since that's no longer an option.

I'm not sure if it's still that way, though the last time I was actually in the media section and not just in-store to do an in-store pickup, there were third-party reps doing the work to clean up/set up the shelf content.

So whats up with Best Buy selling two versions of many blu-rays, at way different prices, with one listed as "enhanced widescreen for 16x9 TVs"?

 

I googled, and most said it was a DVD thing, but I double checked and the "Heat" blu-rays I found, for example, weren't two disc packs with a DVD included.

 

And both editions of "Heat" for instance list 2.40:1 aspect ratios, so it doesn't appear that one is cropped to perfect 16:9 (the modern day equivalent of angry moms and dads actually demanding the full screen version of a DVD movie cause they feel the black bars a gypping them and ruining it).

Mad Max Fury Road is $8 at Best Buy on Black Friday, but I suspect a friend bought the blu ray already.

Take the amount that it's selling for and ask yourself if you would pay that amount to buy a ticket to see it.  Chances are the answer will be no so I'd say sell it.

And it's worth more if you have the steel book as well.

If there is, it'd be in the Trading Forum.

I do know blu-ray.com has a dedicated thread for it too.

Somebody please kill me.

Guys is there anyway we can get a UHD 4K thread to go along with the Bluray and 3D Bluray threads?

Not sure if this is the right thread (I don't come round these parts too often) but Spaceballs BR&UV is on sale for $5.99 at Best Buy. Just thought I'd come by and share for those who haven't snagged it yet, since it seems to be a pretty solid price for the disc and UV

Has anyone seen any 4K blu-ray players get Black Friday love?  And I mean real native 4k not upscaled.  I really thought that would be a big ticket item this year...

Since GoHastings used to be my go to place for used Blu Rays, where is the next best place now? Is there anywhere cheaper than eBay/Amazon?


There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

Gamefly will have used Blu Ray deals in their sale newsletters though I honestly don't know how their prices compare to EBay/Amazon for used titles.
