SDC, you kept the Steelbook for free? You have already paid $7.50 to get it right? so did they refund you that money?

i did the same thing. my bb wouldnt let me price match and use the coupon. then i told them to use the coupon then they thought it was a fraud coupon. i ended up getting my money back and decided to purchase on amazon. i have to wait now till next week tnough. oh well. at least i got the steelbook for free for all of that trouble. maybe i should try toysrus?

It took three ppl to figure out how to ring up the pre-order at my BB. And then they called WM when I tried to do the pm and the person over at WM told them it was 24.96 even though I had a printout of the local ad for that WM. The cashier said that maybe it was a "local online ad". I was like wtf? So i had to drive 5 minutes to the local WM, bought a copy using one of the cpns I had, take the receipt back to BB and show it them.

Then I had to argue to get them to pm & use the cpn. One of the CS reps said it had to be one or the other. Then i told her other BB's were taking them, why couldn't they take it? She said "let me go check". Came back 5-7 min. later and said "we usually don't do this, but we will do it this one time". I was thinking, yeah, do it this time cuz I won't be back. ever.

I don't think I'll be doing the Up steelbook pre-order. Not worth the hassle.

I kept the steelbook, yeah, though that is YMMV too.

Seeing as I'm a BB employee, I guess I'll let you guys know:

The official policy really IS that we can't PM and use a coupon (even if it is a manufacturer's coupon). Some people don't care, but don't get pissed off at employees who shoot you down. They are just doing their jobs, y'know?

I had the same experience as most of you had with mine.

Walked into BB armed with my coupons and printout of the TRU ad. There was a display as soon as you walk in, which saved me the hassle of having to walk back to the movie section. Grabbed my 3 copies, and proceeded to the CS counter.

CSR#1 was a young girl, who obviously hadn't been a CSR for very long. I handed her my 3 copies of SW and told her they were pre-order copies, and that I would like to PM to TRU, then apply the coupon to each copy. I think that was more than she could handle, so she turned to CSR#2. I explained everything again. He then told me the now famous line of "I'm sorry, but we can't PM and apply a coupon. It's either one or the other." I asked why, and he said that he just can't, even with it being a manuf. coupon. So, I just told him to refund my pre-orders, and I'd just go to the TRU that was right down the street. As soon as CSR#3 overheard that, he asked what was going on. CSR#2 explained the situation, then asked CSR#3 if they could do that. CSR#3 said sure, just that it has to be an override from a supervisor.

A few minutes later I was walking out with my 3 copies, having paid $3.26 (+ pre-order of course) for each copy. Thank you CAG!


BTW, anybody need an extra SW blu-ray case? :)

If Toys R us are accepting the coupon then BB should no matter what. Sorry SDC but BB sucks big time.

So can anyone confirm this: If I don't pick up my pre-order of Snow White from Best Buy, will they just refund me my $7.50? I kind of want to keep this steelbook, but I ordered from Amazon.

Does anyone have an extra steelbook they'd be willing to part with? I had no clue about these and I'd like to get one for my gf. She LOVES Snow White.

Please PM me if you have one. Thanks!

Edit: Since this was supposed to be on pre-orders, I'm assuming that I can't pick this up in store anymore, right?

I would imagine that since the movie was released, any Snow White steelbooks still in BBs will ring up for $14.99 by themselves.
dont hate the player or the game just hate your salf

Thanks. Makes sense that they'd charge for it now - if they still have it. >_<

Multiple people earlier mention that they had no problems returning the preorder and getting their $7.50 back. According to the back of the case, it shouldn't work until October 25th to get a refund, though earlier posts indicate otherwise.

I would imagine that since the movie was released, any Snow White steelbooks still in BBs will ring up for $14.99 by themselves.

If the pre-order UPC's are still active in the system, and the steelbook UPC + DVD or BR UPC get scanned in, it should work and knock it down to $7.50 for the pre-order.

It takes the steelbook UPC and one of the other two UPC's to put in the $14.99 coupon for the $14.99 steelbook to make it zero cost.

If the two pre-order UPCs aren't working any longer, then there's no way out of it.

Can you or has anybody been able to find any steelbooks left at their local Best Buys? I wonder if you can still pick one up.

Since both the Blu-Ray and DVD bundles come with a Blu-Ray and a DVD are the bundles identical other than their packaging?

They manually entered mine. It's a manuf. coupon, not a BB coupon, so it probably wont scan.

Has anyone tried to get a preorder refund who got the steelbook but not the actual DVD/BR?

Discussed a lot in this thread. The answer is 'yes'.

It was discussed, but never tried, since the steelbook stated a date of 10/27 or something was required to do that. Hence the reason why I asked if anyone has actually pulled off the move.
