Awesome deal on Dark Knight Returns Part 2. I hope the Dark Knight Rises steelbook is also included in the sale.

While I'd love to hope it is, it likely is not.

Today was my 2nd trip for the promotion. I wanted to pick up Taken 2 for the 2 day sale, but the sales associate kept stating it was an"online only" price. I ended up just getting these for $4.99

Damn, looks like the one I was watching was the Futureshop steelbook. Oh well.

How do you tell if something is first print or not?

I read on another site that none of these Best Buy steelbooks have inner artwork because they're just reprints of the Canadian Futureshop steelbooks which did have inner art.


I bought Underworld Awakening BB Exclusive Steelbook not too long ago but it has inner artwork. But, this isn't the cheapo $9.99 piece.

Maybe only if BB list them as $9.99, they won't have the inner art work?

Batman: DKR is still new.. probably have to wait for 2 more rounds of U&S for the price to drop to $9.99 and we'll score it later for $5. :D

Has anyone ever been able to return a movie they bought under upgrade and save and get that $5 reapplied to another title?

I bought a steelbook and I just realized I already have the same movie in digibook, and for me digitbook trumps steelbook.

it doesn't automatically ring up $12.99? Or maybe when the cashier totals it up the price will be $12.99? does anyone know? I'm planning to pick one of these up tonight if I can utilize $5 upgrade and save.

i just left my best buy and they still had all the taken 2 blu's marked as 24.99, i didnt bother having them scan it for me.

i also noticed that now that the 3pack sale is over, my best buy has every single triple pack imagineable, including a couple i never saw once while the sale was going. it had jfk and 2 other movies in it, i forgot what they were. oh well..

i picked up the girl with a dragon tattoo combo pack for 9.99 and evil dead 2 for 7.99..

It seems every time I see this promotion, it's always the same movies that pop up as available for $5. Discount some new shit!

ahh that was it..after paying 5 dollars for them i couldnt even imagine paying 20 lol..i just wish they did a better job of letting you know what the price of something is in store, theres always some sort of sale going on so you never know if what you pick up is the ticketed price..cant complain tho, i picked up like 15 movies this upgrade and save and i think we still have a week left right? im sure ill pick up a couple more this sunday..

Sorry if this has already been answered (didn't notice it in the FAQ); do the coupons have an expiration date attached/are they valid until the last day of the promotion, or do the coupons have to be used immediately upon the same day you trade-in? I don't have the most cash on me right now and would love to grab a couple of these coupons now and use them in a week or so.

I think I am going to go in this weekend and finally utilize this promo for the first time =].

Was in Algonquin and stopped at Best Buy. They had both Sherlock Holmes steelbooks, Book of Eli steelbook, all LOTR steels. Unfortunately I was a good 40 minutes from home. Lesson learned, always keep some DVD's in the car.

- I haven't had an issue using the coupons at a later date. They are valid until the last day of the promotion.

You could also went to a dollar tree, or bought them and returned them to your store and then get coupons.

Went in tonight and picked-up:

Taken 2 $7.99
Resident Evil: Afterlife $4.99

Was ready for this to be my last trip, but the cashier was nice enough to return my coupon and trade-in receipt again for the second time.

Holy crap. In a span of a couple days, the Sherlock Holmes (first movie) steelbooks got completely cleared out at my local Best Buy, and there were a lot of them. I wonder if it was the doing of one person.

They are technically good until 2/1, but if you use it at a later date, make doubly sure you get a receipt for the coupons. Depending on how strict the cashier is they may not take it without the receipt.

Cool, guess I better hurry, then!

I'll probably avoid having to go this route. I'll likely only pick up a handful of things to begin with.

Thanks for the info, guys!

I also came across many 3 packs today that I hadn't been able to find since this promotion started. A worker told me that a whole seperate group stocks the movie section and she had trouble finding things within the section too. She overrided the price for me the most she could , since it was no longer on sale,and found the only copy of Sherlock for me that was in the back.

This has been a great deal but I am more frustrated than ever with the dumbass way the blu and DVDs are put together and how there are so many different areas that a movie could be hiding in the store.

Are there any blu's that are going to drop in price this Sunday?

While I'm not positive, I believe it just rings up at the sale price. All I know is the cashier acknowledged the sale price when I asked about it and didn't seem to spend any time doing a PM.
