Picked up Wizards 35th Anniversary Edition for 10 bucks after coupon. Happy to find the digibook of that on an endcap.

It was on an end cap that also had Alien, Aliens, and Predator on it at my Best Buy, I think they had just gotten it. Forgot the other movies that were on it.

Anyone know if you can use a gift card code in store? Like if I don't have the actual card but I have the number and pin will they take the price off an order?

They have a special in-store display with Fast movies for $9.99. They include digital copy and ultraviolet along with movie cash for Fast 6. The old blu-ray copies of Fast movies are still $14.99.


Oooo... OK, thanks for the clarification

Wizards I would say is a very cool idea, and interesting though not necessarily what I would call "good." I would say it is worth seeing once just for how wild and grim the animation style and subject matter is, but I am not sure I would ever watch it a second time.

Yes. And if a cashier says otherwise, they aren't trained enough. (basically like doing an online pickup and entering in gc#)

So I tried another Best Buy on Tuesday. A year ago this was the one that gave me a hard time because I had a coupon from another BB and did not do the trade-in with them directly. This time around was a lot better.

The security guy said to bring up the Blu Ray and DVD at once to customer service. There was more of a selection compared to the first store, but no WWE $9.99 section that others posted about. I found Superman vs. the Elite but they were wanting $24.99 for it so I passed and picked up Superman: Unbound instead for $10 AC.

Customer service person checked to see if DVD's were there and thanked me for shopping there. Two other employees followed up to see if I was happy with my purchase and said thank you. Never had that happen at a store before. Definitely makes up for that last visit I had last year.

Saw someone on YouTube beginning to play a clip of this 'weird', cheesy-looking zombie movie. Good thing I caught the director's name since the person didn't mention the movie name:roll:. Zombieland, lol. Got the bluray for $5 after coupon.

I have bought more this time than all of my other U&S purchases combined!

7 3D movies
1 regular blu

If they have their own case for each one then yes you will get 3 coupons.

What 3Ds are you getting? I have two coupons left and don't think I'll end up using them. Seems most of their 3D prices went up from when the sale started. Spiders 3D is still tempting for $15.

Mine never restocked so nothing much for the last week and a half. The movie section needs a lot of work.

coupon.com has $5 off coupon for Life of Pi (DVD, BD or 3D)

http://qpfabf.cpns.cc/


^This one and something else. I debated over Avatar. Saw it once in theater, AMAZING!, but(for some reason) I am Avatar'ed out! I'll buy it, eventually.

Was going to wait on Life of Pi, but the reviews are INSANE and I'll be using U&S, the coupon above, & $5 RZ to make it $14.99. This movie(185 minutes) is longer than Avatar(162 minutes)!

3D Safari: Africa is $7.99 after U&S if you can find it: http://www.bestbuy.c...9&skuId=3233844

I wanted Despicable Me. "Store Pickup: Not Available":evil:

Too bad I procrastinated on getting more $15($10 after coupon) stuff.:evil:


Omg ramble.

The amount of YMMV on this thread is crazy. I went buy a Flagship store on Wednesday - literally less than a mile from Best Buy headquarters here in Minnesota. The guys didn't even open my DVD cases; just took 'em and gave me three coupons.

Overall, their stock was pretty good, but no "Inglorious Basterds", "Rez Dogs" or "Pulp Fiction".

I did pick up:
The Matrix - $5 after coupon
Classic War Movies - $15 after coupon (Patton, Tora Tora Tora, Longest Day, Sand Rats) - the sticker price on this one was $55
Les Miserables (the musical) - $15 after coupon
Hot Fuzz - $8 sale price (no coupon applicable)

The total was about $45 for seven movies . . . not too bad actually.

Avatar 3D is my favorite 3D movie, but even before I had the 3D, Avatar is my most watched movie from the past 2-3 years.

I went ahead and got that.

I know you mentioned Spiders 3D. If you don't mind pre-owned, you can look for this to come back:http://www.gohasting...u/290924209.uts $5.99 + $0.96 ship + (possible tax)

Almost had Despicable Me 3D for $10 with their buy 4 deal. Sold out while in my cart!:bomb:

Didn't hear about the previous ones, so I got a lot of good stuff this time. Star Trek 1,2,3,4,6 and '09, all the solo Tarantino movies except Django, Alien(s), and too many more to count. Interestingly, about 90% of all the blu rays I picked up I already owned on DVD (and often traded the DVDs in for the same movies). Unfortunately, I screwed up big time on the LA Confidential / Body Heat / Player triple pack for $7.00 (after trade in), since they had a ton of them, and I figured they'd be there until next time. Wrong! I suppose a deal like that will never come around again, so I'll have to suffer with DVD versions of those films the rest of my life, and curse myself anew when I watch them. I also failed to get Star Trek Nemesis, which was in plentiful supply until I finally decided to buy it, and GONE!!!!!!!!!
If you return a blu ray you bought with the program, you do not get a new coupon, you just lose all the value. I lost 4 DVDs on this after mistakenly buying Eyes Wide Shut, Clockwork Orange, Terminator (TOTAL LOSER - AVOID AT ALL COSTS), and House of Flying Daggers, all of which suffer from lazy video transfers. Terminator is NO DIFFERENT from the DVD release and has FEWER SPECIAL FEATURES, including the lack of the original soundtrack (a new, terrible stereo soundtrack was optional on the DVDs, mandatory on this one.

I like Amazon's policy, where once you put something in your cart, it stays there for 15 minutes, and no one can "steal" it from you. Wish more sites would do that, but I guess they want to keep the good old brick and mortar tradition alive when people would steal things out of your physical cart (or in some cities rip it out of your hands by force) during quantity discounts or extremely limited supplies.
