I say that every time, then find myself finding ones to pick up on the cheap...often ones I never really had any intention of owning.

Sweet pickup today. I wanted the three Xmen Blus and brought up the combo packs by accident, as they were all that was left. Rang up wrong, of course, but customer service said they'd honor the sticker anyway! So even though I was blind, they gave me the three Xmen combo packs for $5 each(after coupon)! Also picked up the Kevin Smith Trilogy thing for $5, Stargate Anniversary for $7, and The Sting for $7 after Universal coupon and $5 coupon

I dont mind mixing bluray with dvd, but I really really hate the movie organize by genre thing Best Buy is doing since movies can cover multiple genres. Looked all around the story for Neverending Story yesterday. Thought it might be drama, so I checked there, wasn't sure if it was organized by T (the) or N so I checked both spots. Wasnt sure if I was in the wrong spot or if it was out of stock, so I checked sci fi, action, then comedy (maybe, it has some funny parts), finally came across the dvd in the family section (wanted the blu ray). Guess it makes sense in family (didnt see that section before) but I see this becoming a problem down the line (Batman Under the Red Hood was in family, I would have guessed action).

Yea, Batman stuff is under Action, Family, AND TV Shows. As are most comic book stuff.

Not really, just go on myrewardzone.com and put in the number at the bottom of the receipt along with the total.. couldn't be easier.


Yea but it's easier when they just input your number and its done at the store...Argh so many people quoted my post and I put now instead of know.

Turned in a DVD, but couldn't find anything I wanted. Will check again next week and see if any newly on sale BDs catch my eye, and just grab something in any case.

Hopefully I don't have issues since they just gave me a photocopied coupon this time rather than an original, and they never give any recycling receipts at this BB any of the times I've used this program.


Update on this....used the copied coupon with no problems whatsoever today. Cashier just scanned it with out comment.

Got an e-mail that I had a $5 reward zone certificate expiring today so hit the store to use both. Just got the 4 disc (3D) version of Prometheus. I was leaning toward that when I couldn't find anything last week, but it was sold out at the time. 3D is moot for since I don't have a 3D TV, but I wanted the extra documentary.

My BB did a restock I guess, so I was able to grab the last copy of Taken for $5 with another $10 movie money coupon! Great deal. I did the phone check upgrade too, so no dvd trades today, which is good, since I traded all my unwanted DVDs to BB over the last few U&S sales.

Did a five item pick up yesterday:

Madagascar 3 3D combo pack - $24.99
Alcatraz Complete Series - $24.99
Pete's Dragon - $12.99
The Dictator - $4.99
Moonrise Kingdom - $14.99

Previous pick ups:
Great Mouse Detective - $14.99
Immortals 3D combo pack - $14.99

Might be it for me, save picking up Red Dawn with the movie cash attached.


Is that rated XXX?

OK. So I got Prometheus last week with the upgrade and save. So if I take my receipt and this coupon with me to best buy would they refund the $5?

Are the extras on the Prometheus 3d version worth it? Trying to decide between the combo pack and the 3d version (dont care about the 3d bluray movie only curious about the additional special features)

Absolutely worth it. If you have any interest at all in the moviemaking process, the Alien/Prometheus mythology, or Ridley Scott, the primary 220-min making-of documentary is a must-see. The extras are definitely not fluff, promo pieces. They're legit, behind-the-scenes examinations of how this movie got made. I've collected around 3,000 DVDs and BDs over the years, and I think Prometheus' extras disc ranks as one of the best I've seen.

DVD version is $24.99, BluRay version is $29.99. Says so clearly on the shelf tag and whomever put them out dropped them in the wrong slots in the display.

You should be lucky they didn't tell you that you were wrong and showed you the shelf tag showing that the DVD version, not the BluRay version, was $24.99.


The sticker on the case said 24.99 and it rang up for 29.99. The weird part was the coupon didn't take it off so she manually rang it up for 19.99

Same thing I am wondering.

And, I am so NOT feeling that movie. Weird.:-s Got the 3D version. Glad I missed it in theaters.

Thanks to everyone for posting their pick-ups. Normally i could care less about those type of posts but it really helps with this kind of thread. Only purchase i kind of regret is Rampart. That movie is just too slow for me. I did notice that Woody is in every single camera shot(well scene more so). That was kinda different and I respect the hell out of small budget and Indie movies....this one was just not for me though.

Gonna go Fri, to pick up my last haul, all the non $5 flicks I've yet to get

The extra $5 off is really tempting, shame you have to buy the 3D blu-ray to get the extra features.

Man, I had just convinced myself, as bad as I wanna see prometheus in 3D, that $20 is too much..but for $15, I HAVE to go by. I can probably get 5-10 for the 2D blu-ray if nothing else on eBay.

It's BB policy to accept 1 manufacturers coupon and 1 best buy coupon on the same item. I've ran into lots and lots and lots and lots and lots of customer service employees who don't believe this is BB policy. It's ymmv.

It was announced not too long ago that Best Buy will be matching Amazon's price for the holidays and the BB employee I talked to today said that they're already matching Amazon and will continue to do so after the holidays; that said, I tried to get a price match on 'The Nightmare Before Christmas 3D' and the cashier seemed to not see any problem with that.

I did, however, run into an issue when I tried to also use an Upgrade and Save coupon and was told by a manager that I, unfortunately, would have to choose between the price match or the U&S coupon (the Amazon price is 30.95 and the price after U&S is 29.99... so it's essentially a wash since I could just buy it on Amazon and not have to pay taxes)... has anyone else been able to get both? Is this ymmv or is it just not gonna happen?

Unless they've changed how the register works, as soon as you do a price adjustment by manual adjustment or via price match, coupons tend not to work.

A PM is also the "other deals and promotions" section that the coupon legal says it won't work with.

Apparently I won't sit this one out after all. I just picked up the 4 disc set of Prometheus for $15. I don't care for the idea that I have to buy the 3D edition if I want any extra features, but I couldn't justify skipping out on the bonus disc for only $5 more.

It's amazing the difference that an extra $5 makes on movie decisions :D
