tax isn't included. You'll have to buy another tv show. In which you may be better off placing two $50plus orders.

Getting the bonus $10 for ship to store and $10 gift card. $40 that way instead of $35.


I guess I'll just HAVE to get Homeland in that case. Thanks for the info.

Yesssss! SOA4 for $25. That's awesome. I was expecting $35 at least. Girlfriend spontaneously bought me Dexter season 6 on Blu last week, so now I don't have to fork out a ton for the latest season of "my shows"

I can't believe they've dropped the price of Dictator on blu 1 week after it comes out!

definitely getting $5.00 back!


I'm with you! Anyone thinking of blind-buying (like I did), I'd say wait for it to get a bit cheaper or rent it. I was a huge fan of Bruno/Borat, but came away kind of disappointed with this one. Some funny moments, but overall not that great.

The online orders would get you the $10 certificate for the $50+ orders with in-store pickup and another $10 more in a gift card with the online order that gets mailed to you. The $10 GC is only one per person, however.

The in-store orders would get you a $25 GC for a $100 in-store order.

It might be better to do two $50+ orders with the $10 certificate and $10 mailed GC for one order and another $50 for the $10 certificate (and possibly get another $10 GC out of the deal if the system doesn't limit you to one $10 GC).

But with the online version you would have to buy 3+ tv sets @ 14.99 & up to get the $10 gc. At least that's how it was earlier in the week.

They have made it harder to maximize the savings by combining promotions with online orders. Especially with a lot of the newest releases not being a part of the $10 gc promo.

If amazon price matches BB on "Once Upon a Time: The Complete First Season" to $39.99 my preorder with $15 off coupon puts me at $25 for it.

Where did you get that $15 off coupon? Is Once Upon a Time worth a blind buy? I've heard lot of good things about it!

It looks it's still that way, so it looks like that idea won't work.

Guess it's in-store for the $100 worth of items for the free $25 GC.

That's the price I was looking for on SOA S4 blu. Combined with the other stackable offers I can't justify not picking this up.

Thanks for the early heads up


Exactly..I just got RZC in thats gonna help knock that below what I was waiting for...a must snag for me on tues.

I'm fairly new to the whole bluray world but figured y'all could help me out with this... I'm wanting to expand my collection and see that they have these triple pack bluray deals (I.e. 300, Troy, Alexander, etc..) for $14.99 which is an awesome price, but...

My coworker and I were discussing which blus look the best and for some reason we got discussing these "value" packs, and he said the quality isn't as good with these. How is this true if they're still blus producing at 1080p?

Or IS it true?

The triple packs you're talking about are just the separate disks put in a case if that helps a bit.

Okay, that's what I thought as well. He just made it out to seem like they were all on the same disc or something, producing at lower qualities

Excellent, now time to cancel my Amazon order and go to BB and use the coupon or go to Target and PM BB to get the exclusive version.

I wonder if the system doesn't produce the $25 GC if you did this in-store purchase:
Once Upon A Time S1 BD - $39.99
Boardwalk Empire S2 BD - $34.99
Walking Dead S2 BD - $29.99

That would be $104.98 before the $15 ABC TV coupon, which Best Buy always seems to deduct post-purchase as "payment". That should net out the $25 GC for the >$100 purchase in-store and then the $15 coupon would make it $89.98 + tax on the whole purchase pre-coupon. I'm hoping the system doesn't skip the $25 GC on the purchase because it nets out to >$100 after the $15 coupon is applied.

Guess you could then turn around and do either Homeland S1 or SOA S4 with the $25 GC from the prior purchase.

EDIT: Just dumped my Homeland S1, Boardwalk Empire S2 and OUAT S1 pre-orders with Amazon. Will try this in-store and see what happens, and pick up the two $25 releases, one with a the $25 GC provided and the other one with RZ certs.

maybe wait until they add the giftcard in then hand them the coupon? They usually ring the giftcard in when they are prompted to do so before totaling everything. I'm sure you'd be fine.

That's normally how it should work, though we'll see on Tuesday.

in for boardwalk empire season 2 and homeland season 1. might find more to bring it up to $100.



This. For some freakin' awesome prices to boot. $60 for both before tax? SOLD. Can't believe House S8 DVD was only 'on sale' for $34.99 on release week. As much as I've been wanting to watch it, I'll wait for $25 or better...

Might be tempted on other nice deals to make it $100, though...I got all of BSG when it was $19.99 a season, and just picked up the first two of Justified for $17.99 and $21.99...not sure what else I'd want...

Printed up the OUAT coupon for the blu-ray and it says that its for $15 off the blu-ray, not $10 like for the DVD. I might be in for $25, I'll have to talk it over with my girlfriend.

According to the fine print "Minimum 2 per store."

Since the $10 gift card according to the weekly ad is in-store only and it seems that way on the website as well I need to rethink my purchases.

Sons of Anarchy is one of my top 3 shows (other 2 are Dexter and Walking Dead)

I was addicted to the series on Netflix and can't wait to watch 4, then catch up on 5 next month
