The only thing I hate about this promotion is the fact that I can't get to every movie right away. Then they end up on Netflix. Might head back today, but I don't know what to get aside from There WiIl be Blood.

Picked up the last Scrooged for $5, must be left over stock from December as the website doesn't even give scrooged an option to select instore pick-up at any stores.

I know the feeling...I've seen most of the movies I bought, but not in a while, and some are instant classics that I know I'll watch again and again.

In my "viewing queue" (ones I'm looking forward to watching ASAP):

The Town Extended (25 extra mins?! Holy mess!)
Sin City Extended Recut (never seen extended)
Aviator (never seen)
Monty Python and the Holy Grail (been a long time)
V for Vendetta (been a long time)
The Change-Up (been a while)
Alexander Revisited (never seen it)

And all those are AFTER I finish Big Bang season 5. Not to mention I also have Jusitifed season 2 to watch :roll:

But the $5 price tag for most of these, $1.66 ea. if you count triple features, is just too good a price to let up. I'll get around to them all eventually. I try to watch a good movie every night when I get home from work.

Pisses me off that the Get the Gringo BB Exclusive is $20. I coulda sworn I saw somebody at Blu-Ray.com say they got it for $9.99, then $4.99 w/ the coupon, but I got shot down immediately last night because the SKUs didn't match. Oh well, was going to be a blind buy. I did see that that The Roommate movie was $9.99 and might give that a shot just to stare at two hot chicks the duration of the film, but don't know if its worth it..

No no, thats ok, I was just simply saying thats all. It is cleary $9.99 for the vanilla and $19.99 for the BB Exclusive on the website and their system. I had just hoped they were both $9.99. Perhaps I mis-read the comment in another forum where the guy said he got it with the 'slip' Maybe there are vanilla versions out there with a slipcover and some without. However, the store I was at last night, had both versions, but the only version with a slip cover was the BB Exclu. Thanks though!! I guess if you got a clueless clerk, they could be persuaded to PM the higher priced one b/c the title is the same, but the guy I had ringing me out last night was stiff, by the book, soldier boy.

Same here. There are a couple I want to pick up, but I'm pretty sure they're all on Netflix (or will be soon). I literally walked through the movie section for about 30 mins yesterday and left with nothing. Even the $5 steelbooks seem like a waste of money to me. If the LOTR steelbooks were the EE I'd pick them up in a heartbeat, but since they're the theatrical version.... yea, they can stay on the shelf.

Bummer. I want those LotR Steelbooks! I only picked up 3 steelbooks during this sale b/c there aren't very many at my local Best Buy...

I picked up a few things, but as usual there's a lot of $10 titles that were never carried in store around here (Children of Men, I'm looking in your general direction). Hopefully we'll have some good TV sales during the promo period.

Trip 1:
Breaking Bad Seasons 1 and 2 ($8.99 ea)
The Princess Bride
Planes, Trains, and Automobiles
Barbarella

Trip 2:
Austin Powers Triple Feature
The Blues Brothers

Has anyone noticed if their stores have been getting any restocks on most of these movies, preferably the steelbooks?

I'm probably going back to my local store tonight (haven't been since Monday), and see if they MAYBE have Sucker Punch, Gran Torino, V for Vendetta, or Book of Eli steelbooks.

Got 2 coupons left, but I feel the majority of the titles in the OP are going to be the only ones for $5 through the February deadline, and I doubt anything extraordinary is going to be coming out the last week it's running.

My Batman Steelbooks had UV from the last time they ran this promo. Could have changed them though.

Way to many movies I'd be interested in picking up (The Hurt Locker and Hellboy 2 for example) that are listed not available in store for some reason.

Got 6 Blu-rays for $60! (The 6th was in the bargain bin for $7.99 lol)

Super easy and a really good selection left. I just walked up to the service desk, handed her the 5 DVDs and she handed me 5 coupons.

Thanks for the thread so I didn't miss this opportunity :)

You could always show that supervisor the page in the weekly ad discussing/outlining the Upgrade & Save promotion.

So I've been selling all my DVD's on Ebay (the one's that actually have retained value) and now all the one's that don't have any value on Ebay are going towards this upgrade and save. I've been buying all the steelbooks I can. If you flip them on ebay they go for 10-15 bucks so you'll make a profit of 4-8 dollars minus fees . My question is do you think they will go up in value in a year or down? I plan to keep them for a year and worst case I give people shawshank redemption steelbook for christmas or birthday present. medium case I sell for ten bucks on ebay. Best case they go up in price to 25-30 and I make bank on crappy DVD's that would have cost me money to sell on ebay.

If you expect to make bank on steelbooks it's just not going to happen, sorry boss.

cust service knew about the U&S and gave me coupons but when i pulled out 2 old cell phones they said recycle, no clue about the trade in for $5 gc, i told her it was in ad..she looked it up then said i had to go to mobile phone area that they needed the serial # etc...and of course the few customers in the store all seemed to be in that area. traded in 2 games and picked up Prototype 2 w coupon from mag for $15. phone area still busy w other customers but a lady did come over and offer to see if i was eligible for an upgrade and i asked her for coupon. Bluray selection pretty weak of any that i want..went w Silent Night , Oceans 11 trilogy and From Dusk to Dawn set..then later noticed Dusk was on sale for $7.99 so i basically lost a coupon..

LAST CALL for the Book of Eli steelbooks. $15 shipped. jcp42877 is apparently not interested because he's no longer responding to PM's.

Well I don't expect it, but it would be nice. I sold some old unopened steelbooks for 30. I think that Bestbuy will go out of business in 1-3 years. Their business model is dying. all 3 BB's I went to in busy NYC were ghost towns. Netflix is demolishing the price of phyisical media. BB is a showroom for Amazon. Although it's gonna also be bad for Amazon if BB goes down cause if there is no showroom for Amazon, how will people know to buy from amazon? Some chicken and the egg thing right there. The question is how much steelbooks will go up in price from the $5 dollars I spent? if BB goes down and the production of limited steelbooks goes down then you may have gained 20 dollars on each. That's one plausible forecast.
