Cool, thanks for the info, Vulgarism and crazedracerguy

Picked up The Great Mouse Detective for $14.99 AC. It released today along with Pete's Dragon.


Did you actually see Pete's Dragon? It's not supposed to release until next week.

:wall:the target version had a steelbook?!?!?

So I turned in my unwatched copy of the 11th hour dvd and got this weird look from the CSR saying they don't take blank/copies dvds only retail in box...when I told her that's the way the package was designed , she still didn't believe me, til I had her scan it in her terminal and it rang up.

Anyways I got the photo copy of the trade in coupon plus the receipt for the trade in. The cashier rung up the movie but I guess didn't understand how to do a 5 dollar reward zone AND a 5 dollar trade in so he entered 2 MFG 5 dollar coupons so that knocked the movie down. I know he screwed up, so there might be a chance that my 5 dollar reward zone coupon printed out may not have been used.

hmmm

Didn't look for it, but I could have sworn it was supposed to come out yesterday. Sorry for the bad intel.

4 out of 5 that I wanted arent available in store and they wont allow the online order, pick up in store, return, then re-buy using the coupons.

I can't imagine why the hell not. Just return it without telling them you want to rebuy. Then say, "You know what, I think I do want that after all. Oh and here are my upgrade and save coupons."

Grocery stores are another possible place to find cheap movies.

Save A Lot, a no frills store, carries DVDs by the register. Usually old B Movies. I think those are $1.

Drug Mart if that hasn't been mentioned. Don't know if these stores are regional or what but I'm sure there are similar types elsewhere.

Last few times they've had a decent TV blu-ray sale at the same time, only picked up I spit on your grave double pack (pretty much just for the Joe Bob Briggs commentary) so far.

Not a problem! I was just curious whether Best Buy broke the street date. I only have to wait till next week anyway. :)

I started a suggestion thread on Best Buy forums to allow U&S coupons to be used online (or to place online orders in store for ship to store/home, which seems to be pretty YMMV right now). At this point, there's almost nothing in store that I want and haven't bought yet, except for new releases which are often still too expensive for me to buy, so I really hope they decide to figure something out. If anyone's interested in voting it up or commenting on it, here's the link: http://forums.bestbu...ne/idi-p/593310

This would require them putting a unique code on every coupon. I hope it happens though.

There's a thrift store over by my house that has .25 day every Sunday, a new color every week. Usually, they have a few crappy DVDs left by the time .25 day hits, so I pick them up in anticipation of this deal.

Today is the first day I've done the U&S this time around, and I ended up with:

Fight Club
Aliens
Alien 3
Prometheus 3D
I Spit on Your Grave 2-pack

Heading to another BB later to try and get the first Alien movie an a few others.

Picked up a copy of Great Mouse Detective. That's it so far for me.

$0.01 and $0.25 DVDs make this so much more enjoyable. ;) Even better was trading in the "teaser" disc you received containing Game Of Thrones S1E1 after making any HBO purchase, which was a Best Buy provided disc.

Just wanted to post that I was able to use the Upgrade & Save and Mystery rewards ($5) to get Prometheus 3D for $15. So for those and haven't redeemed the Mystery rewards it expires Saturday.

I have a preview for Rome that is in my stack to trade in next. I think that was from BB too.

Has anyone used more than one of these ? I used the first one when it came a few weeks ago for $5 but I received another in my e-mail today. Not sure if its actually a new one or if they were sending the original one in case I didnt use it.

I don't have the original e-mail anymore that I can compare the numbers to.

Heck yes. I'm with you man. I traded in those Game of Thrones DVDs during other U&S promotions, but I bought them at BB for .01 cent. I didn't make an HBO purchase.

I didn't want to boast, but it's hard to hold it in much longer. Last week I was across town and I happened to stop by a Gamestop I've never been to for some of those .10 cent ps2 games. Next door was a dollar tree. I walked in and bought 27 of those .25 cent dvds for a total of $6.25.

At another dollar tree, I bought 5 more .25 cent DVDs and 8 of those penny Flash Gordon DVDs. I threw in a couple dollar DVDs just so my total purchase price wasn't too low. I read on the bluray.com forum about customers being denied the penny DVDs at Dollar tree.

Anyway, I hope BB continues their trend of U&S deals every three months. I have enough DVDs to last a little while.

Also, that Gamestop happened to be the only Gamestop in the district to still carry PS2 games. All of the other stores send their ps2 games to this one huge store, so I hit the motherload that day.

Back on topic though, here's my haul for Tuesday.

The Great Mouse Detective - $14.99
Cabin in the Woods - $14.99
ET book edition - $16.99 (used one of those universal 100 $3 coupons)
Prometheus 3d - $19.99
Taken - $5 (already have this from blockbuster, but bought it for the $10 ticket.

I had to drive to two stores before they would accept my $3 universal coupon. They said it was "double dipping" at the first store. I showed here a print out of one of the Best Buy forums where the BB representatives stated that it's a manufacturer's coupon that should be treated as legal tender. And it shouldn't double dip the U&S coupon. The BB employee didn't care or even look at it. I was spending $80 on new release blurays. Not cheap catalog titles like I usually do. Three dollars wouldn't even cover the tax on my purchase. Should I bother reporting this store?

Im tempted to do it anyways. I was told because the stuff on the site may have a diff sku than the store so if they ring them back up at the store, they may price higher than the site etc.

I would report sonic. Let it be known to the higher-ups their employees are going against their own set rules. You had the print out and was about to drop $100 on movies, you were well prepared and in the know

*EDIT* Nevermind, just saw you updated your post!
I assume you're quoting prices after an U&S coupon???
I just bought Prometheus 3D for $19.99 ($24.99 - $5 U&S coupon) last night so if it's on sale for $19.99 (before coupon) already next week I'd be pretty surprised.

My haul from last night:
-Prometheus 3D
-ET
-Apollo 18
-The Great Mouse Detective
-The Adventures of TinTin 3D

I really want to get Cabin in the Woods but every store in my area seems to be sold out. :(

Pete's Dragon is tempting; probably haven't seen that movie in 25 years. :O

Wish Chernobyl Diaries would drop to a price more befitting it so I could blind buy it. Only really want it for the imagery. . .

Aw, man...I shouldn't have opened the steelbook edition I bought for $19.99 on release week--I could have returned-and-rebought it with a U&S coupon to save another $5. :cry: Can I still do that without the actual item?
