Yes, it's the permanent price. And it's true that there isn't a way of knowing, as far as I'm aware of. New tags are printed out early Sunday morning and put out before the store opens. That's when Anderson Merchandising puts out the media tags and adjusts prices if it's called for.



Thanks for the info. It just seems like too great of a price to not just be a sale. Awesome news. Thanks again.

I'm kind of shocked that some Best Buys are so weary of PMing anyone, let alone Amazon. I mean, the BB I work at is the only one in a 500 mile radius, but still. I have no problem PMing anyone. It's just weird to know that some stores are turning people away because they don't want to lose $8.

Probably because its Best Buy policy not to...

Does Best Buy match the prices of Internet retailers?
No. Best Buy does not match the prices of Internet-only retailers or the website prices of our local retail competitors' stores. If, however, a local retail competitor has the same or lower price as its online store and the customer can provide verification of the in-store price, Best Buy will match the price (so long as all other price match policy criteria are met).

No problem, dude! Glad I could be of some assistance!

And slickkill77, that's really interesting. I wonder why POS (the cashier/transaction program) lists Amazon, NewEgg, BestBuy.com, and others that I can't think of off hand as reasons for price adjustments.

Nice. I hope there is a sale on Dark Knight Returns as $10 after $5 trade-in would be the perfect price for me.

I really think this promo is counter productive for Best Buy as now I only buy there when I have the coupons, and when I am in I am always thinking, Ill just wait til the next promo.

Too bad the $20 price for Bug's Life ends today; that would have been a sweet $15 pickup tomorrow.

I think there is a loophole for those that live in the state that holds amazon's warehouse hq. It's a physical location.

First 9 1/2 pages all will be 4.99 after coupon this week, in case anyone was looking for a totally complete list. Most of these are not on sale and will likely be found in cheap bins and bargains on Black Friday, but still.

Since some are not available in store, wondering if possible to order them online and pickup at store and then return it as re-buy with $5 off coupon with DVD trade ins?

Currently waiting at CS at best buy and the employee had no clue the promotion starts today and couldn't find the coupons. He just sat nervously looking at his screen while the line behind me grew and grew.

I finally stepped aside and am waiting cause he said his manager is looking or the coupons, but doesn't think they came in yet.

Kinda sucks I have lunch plans and a funeral to go to in a bit. Not how I planned this would go, especially since I've never had problems at my BBY

I had almost the same experience last time. Then the CS chick tried to tell me I had to trade in cell phones for coupons. I just pointed to the giant sign they had on the exit door advertising the Blu Ray upgrade coupon. The manager eventually found the coupons and nobody had ever heard of the promotion before, in spite of me using it every time.

Anyone looking to purchase the $9.99 Predator, be forewarned. That sale title is the old 2008 edition; the 2010 edition is still $14.99.

Well my experience ended up being a success. They never found the coupons so the manager just told me to pick out the Blus I wanted and he'd do a $5 override on each title instead.

Ended up getting Taken and Watchmen. Watchmen oddly rang up $7.99 instead of $9.99, but the manager still gave me $5 off!

First time I jumped on this deal, managed to Fight Club, Red Dawn, Taken, Incredible Hulk, and Green Zone for 5$ each after coupon. Also picked up Blair Witch Project (blu-ray) which was 5$ already. Hoping to pick up some of Red, Red Dragon, Pulp Fiction, 2001, Traitor, The Truman Show, and Dogma on Tuesday. Good stuff. Unfortunately, I missed A Clockwork Orange since it oddly rang up as 7.99 instead of the 9.99 it was advertised as.

Also yeah, I had the same experience as some of the guys above. The CS reps had no idea the deal was going on, didn't have the coupons, so I brought the blu-rays up to them and they directly took off the price.

A question though: has anyone managed to get the Bestbuy.com price matched in store and then apply the 5$ off coupon? I'm hoping to find some way to do that, otherwise I'll probably won't be able to get some of the above at 5$.
