There is not much in the way of new stuff I am looking to get...basicly trying to replace my dvd copies with bluray. down to under 60...started with over 400 when I first took the bluray plunge. many titles I just realized were bad purchases.

anyhow, yesterday I was able to swap out 5 for the bluray counter part.
Animal House
Billy Madison
Children of men
Cruel Intentions
Knocked Up

How do they handle multiple DVD sets, such as a season of a TV show? Is it one $5 coupon for those? Or multiple?

in two trips so far i was able to snag:

breaking bad seasons 1 & 2
inception (SB)
the hangover (bf wanted it)
fight club (10th anniversary)
monty python and the holy grail

still have 2 coupons left and more dvds to trade in, but i've had no luck finding those triple packs. might pick up shawshank redemption SB since i've never seen it and have heard nothing but good things about it.

anyone know if these are the only sale items through the promotion or can we expect more weekly sales until the 2nd? i may hold off a week and see what happens.

It's supposed to be one per set, however I just separate them out into individual cases with extra printouts/copies of the cover art. No way am I going to trade in 4 or 5+ discs as a single upgrade.

Looks like I'll just have to order the Departed and Sucker Punch steelbooks online and hopefully get them before the promo expires, as they aren't listed as available anywhere in SoCal.

SPLASH!

One coupon per set. If you want to get rid of a multi-DVD set and can't sell it outright, DVD2Blu might be the better option since it's per disc there.

To the "If I send you an offer via PM, please respond to it even if you aren't interested" guy, I'm still waiting to hear back from you after I sent you a PM in July of 2009.

Just got back from Best Buy and had a horrible experience. Had to wait in line for 20 minutes only to be told that they didn't have the $5 coupons and that I would need to go pick out my movies and then come back and they would manually adjust them. I told the associate that I was going to go pick out my movies but there was no way I was waiting in line. Grabbed Taken 2 with the T-shirt from the display but the rest of the movie section looked worse then a K-Mart. Movies were out of place and several spots were empty, if I was the manager of that store I would be ashamed of how it looked because that is the first thing people see when they enter. Was able to find The Big Lebowski but I couldn't find anything else. Going to try another Best Buy tomorrow.

I always bring a bag with my old DVDs and head straight for the shelves to find which ones I want to trade for. Then I wait in line at customer service and have them handle the whole transaction at once. That way if I only find 3 or 4 movies I want, I didn't already give them all 5 DVDs. That would also save customer service from giving out the UPC cards...so everyone wins.

This promotion has reminded me how much I don't like BB's dividing of movies into genres. There are too many movies that can be left open to interpretation which leads to having to check more than one genre to find the movie you want. It was easy when everything was alphabetized together since the movie would just be in one place (disregarding endcaps and such).

Now playing (& watching):

:br:-Breaking Bad season 3

Picked up Taken 1, X-Men Origins, Hangover Steelbook, Princess Bride, and the TMNT bundle.

Think I will wait until the next U&S to do any more. The Best Buy I was at had tons of stock, but it still took me an hour to find 5 Blu-rays. It doesn't help that I don't like paying more than $25 for a season of a TV show and the only shows they had at that price were AMC shows. I have enjoyed Breaking Bad so far, though not enough to keep my copies, didn't like Walking Dead, and am not all that interested in Mad Men.

None of the titles I want are near me, is there a way for them to order for delivery me at store and I pay with the coupons there?

You could try the Express Lane ordering, basically you order through customer service and they manually change the price to decrease each movie by $5 and it gets shipped to your house for free.

I've had good luck with this at the two best buys by my work.

FLOL the latest trip the guy just handed me one of the pads with the Upgrade & Save coupons, there are probably 10 or so left. I got the last couple of Best Buy exclusive Taken 2's with the tshirts, damn those things are selling fast, and some other stuff.

Only things left on my shopping list at this point are:

Sucker Punch SB (can't find in store)
Last Samurai SB (can't find anywhere)
Gran Torino SB (too expensive/can't find anywhere)
Goodfellas SB (too expensive)
Spiderman SB (too expensive)
Game of Thrones S1 SE (too expensive)
Watchmen Limited Edition (too expensive)

SPLASH!

Usually they have some kind of TV blu-ray deal going on at the same time as upgrade and save, but all I really found so far that is much on sale is the first two seasons of Breaking bad. Though it looks like it is finally time to pick-up zombie land and maybe a couple of others.

I agree with this, and when they made the change, they also grouped DVDs and BluRays together, which also makes it harder to find what you are looking for.
