All the ones I've received from B&N were via postal mail, which they last sent out about a month ago in advance of Valentine's Day.    One of those worked for me, and I ended up with Cloudy 2 3D combo for a little under $20 shipped with tax as well as Pixar Short Films Vol 2 for a little over $17 shipped.

 

Coupon codes are normally unique as well, if they're the 13-digit variety.

 

Also, here's a link for a free 2-month trial to the B&N membership:

Thanks, this makes the Wizards Collection 199  with membership coupons and Toy Story 3D collection 40. Thanks for the heads up.

Are the coupons available on the spot, or would I had to be on an emailing list ahead of time?

I'm not a member and never received any coupons, but I found this online: http://www.barnesand...=LEVQMW4Q6GGES

 

It worked in store without any trouble at all (but wouldn't work online).  Got Toy Story 3D trilogy for $45.77 after tax, shipped to home.  The store was out of stock, and they said it'd be 1 1/2 to 3 weeks to get to me, but I can wait.  Good price.

Anyone see any good deals anywhere for Thor 2 or Gravity?

Thor 2 dropped to $22.99 on Amazon.

 

That seemed reasonable, so I bit.

Yeah, Best Buy has it for that same price as well. I had it on preorder there for the steelbook and then got a nice surprise with a price drop.

I pre-ordered Gravity 3D last week from Amazon, and I was hoping it would drop to somewhere around this price as well.  It's "Shipping now" status as we speak, though, so I doubt it will drop anymore...

It won't since multiple B&M vendors have it for that price, being both Target and Best Buy.  Walmart might drop it a little lower, though we'll have to see once it releases.

Wow, the hoarders decimated all the Best Buy's around me for the Thor Dark World steelbook.

Why didn't people just do in-store pick-up?

Why didn't people just do in-store pick-up?

Release items are never available for in-store pickup until the day of release and the items are "available" for in-store pickup ordering.   It normally releases around 12AM - 2AM of the morning of release, though this time around, it didn't work like that.  I tried to make an in-store pickup order at 1:30AM yesterday morning and I couldn't do it because it was Sold Out on BB.com.  In-store pickup orders get screwed up when the item isn't order-able for shipping on BB.com and sometimes, you can't make an in-store pickup order.  I was able to do it via the mobile app / mobile site while waiting for the store to open, though by the time the store would have picked it, I would have been able to get it on my own at store open.

 

Glad I did go at store open because some knuckle-dragging flipper bought at least four of them as soon as the store opened and that was the store across the country, it seems.

Got an email from frys with "Secret in-store Promo codes"  One of them was for Gravity.  The promo code is good for 5 bucks off making the standard blu edition 17.99.  I was thinking of trying it out later on the 3D version.  Seems like it would work which would make Gravity 3D 22.99 as they have it priced at 27.99. 

 

Post back if anyone gets it to work.

 

Promo CODE: 1096296

Yea, I realized after I posted that the option didn't show up on their full site. I had just ordered it on my phone through the mobile site when I woke up, so I didn't realize it wasn't available otherwise. I guess I just got lucky. I had checked after midnight PST before going to bed, and the option wasn't there.

Has anyone found a better deal on Frozen 3D than the Amazon.UK deal?  It is cheaper than the Zavvi price, but $30 is a bit much though not extremely high.  Amazon.UK is showing this as region free, but if there has been a change for the US release I would rather go that route.

I'd love to know that as well. I may get it now that it's back in stock but I'm concerned that I won't be able to play it on my PS3. There's still no confirmation that it's region free, right?

Not until someone gets the disc and tries it in a US region player.

According to Amazon UK's listing in my post this is region free so I would be inclined to believe them.  I would also expect it could be returned if the listing is wrong and it is region locked.

Doesn't work on Wolverine 3D. 😕

"Coupon could not be applied for skus in cart".

Bummer. Been waiting to pick that one up for cheap. It's been $22.99 for the longest time, but hoping for around $15 before pulling the trigger.

do you have an FYE around you?  they were selling the 3d for $10 for the longest time, might still be that price in store

Nice find!

 

I picked up Walking with Dinosaurs 3d, Gullivers Travels 3d (I know, it's probably terrible) and Rio 3d.  Didn't work for Turbo 3d or I would have bought that too.

 

It's a good deal for the Star Wars set if the coupon works.

There might be a sale when the new X-Men hits theaters (Marvel movies are going on sale at the end of the month to commemorate Captain America's new film), but I doubt you'll see it for $15 until the Black Thursday to days after Christmas spread (where they had Star Trek, Pacific Rim, and Great Gatsby for that price (and $7.99 for non-3d).

I broke down and ordered Frozen 3D via Amazon UK.  The Amazon.UK page for this shows £18 which is a little under $30 US before shipping, but when I went through the order process it dropped to £15 so the total WITH shipping is £18.08 which is about $29.81 US.  I went through the process twice to be 100% sure it was the correct edition it is Frozen [Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray] [Region Free] for £18.08 shipped!

 

Hope this helps any other fence sitters!

I had that preordered too, but cancelled after the TRU deal. $11.59 is just too good to pass up, even if it is just the 2-D version. Just know, that while it's not yet official, there are strong indications they'll not only release a 3-D version in the U.S., but it will be a full-on four to five disc (dubbed Crystal Edition - we'll see if that name holds) that will have an entire disc of special features (the most common complaint among the current release). They predict we'll see it in Oct.

 

Of course, if you don't care about extras, and you want it now, the UK version is the best deal of all the current offerings.

Do you have any articles you can link that give more detail?  Usually Disney doesn't double dip quite that fast but you never know with how successful Frozen has been.

There's a link on one of these topics to the article, just can't remember which one (probably one of the Frozen topics)

It saddens me to believe that this would be the most optimal scenario for Disney to double dip. Knowing there's a a huge audience for the launch (it broke records, right?) and the 3D and deluxe editions are generally targeted to the enthusiast, they likely released a standard version with practical benefits like the digital copy only to release a super version 6 months later. Other releases like The Hobbit have a similar model and followed a similar release pattern.
