People like me? What the Fuck are you talking about. I'm not going to double dip on a season just for a damn box. My goal is to not have any repeat houses on the sets, which is also why I appreciated the way they did Season 3 so I could catch up with a cover I missed (and technically others who do the same should be in the exact same boat as me).


I agree lol. I missed the season 1 covers (didn't get introduced to the show till well after they were OOP) so I appreciate having the chance to get a Stark cover now without paying inflated prices. I'm sure many others feel the same way and BB/HBO are obviously aware of this and know it brings good business.

Sadly my copy won't be here till Thursday :(

$10 in RZ certs + $10 from a coworker for the DVDs + $10 from a friend for the digital code = GoT Blu season 3 for whatever the Hell tax was.

Now that there seems to be choices as to where redeem digital codes. Where is the best place to do so?

Don't use the HBO Select site... go to Vudu and redeem, go to Flixster and redeem, go to iTunes and redeem. I'm not sure about Google, but I'm guessing the code will work there too. If you redeem through HBO you are limited to Fllixster PLUS one of the other choices, this way you can use them all!

I did not know that. I am trying to go through Flixster (I am avoiding iTunes) but for some reason, I can't get the option to redeem UV codes. Waiting on Amazon Instant Video to go up.

^ If anyone is wondering I received the S3 AZ LE in the mail today; I bought it for a friend in Canada (not sure if was a US exclusive or if it was cheaper for him to buy it and pick it up from me as I live near the ME/Canada border) but regardless it is very underwhelming.

 

Small and the statue/disc holder is made of plastic. It does appear the base is numbered, but not sure out of what. The one I received was 17,xxx. 

I enjoy GOT but wouldn't pay anymore then $60 for the set. To make it worse it comes in plain white packaging.

Just wondering to anyone who got a copy with one of the exclusive covers: is it just the cover that's the difference from the "regular" Season 3 Blu-Ray Best Buy is selling?

 

Like, if I buy one of the copies with a cover, will I also get the DVD and Digital Copy versions?

Yup, only difference is the cover

Grabbed the Targaryen version no problem from Best Buy yesterday. All the sets were in a display box for Game of Thrones.

Guys, I found out some good news. Game of Thrones Season 1 and 2 codes are still valid if you want to nab your UV copies. I found out Google Chrome messes with Flixster, but IE displays it fine. If you use the voucher code and redeem it through Flixster, it'll still tie the content. And they seem to have a beta where you can convert over discs to digital based on their catalog (if they have it and you have it, you can get it added to your library). It's $2 per disc, but its up to you.

Wait how many different places can we redeem the code or can you just select one?

Flixster, Vudu, iTunes, and now Google Play. Amazon Instant Video was an option for Seasons 1 and 2, but 3 is up in the air currently. I REFUSE to use my voucher until I get my AIV copy.

Any way to redeem through Google Play without going through the HBO Select site? I dont see anyplace on the Google Play store to redeem. I cant go through HBO Select now since I redeemed through Flixster & VUDU already.

If you don't particularly care about the covers, but still want a Best Buy edition, go with Stark. I got Targaryen, and the black sleeve just doesn't fit with the white-ish (marble?) looking box. 

 

(Unless the box color is different for Best Buy editions vs. regular editions. If so, then disregard my comment lol)

Hmm. I pre-ordered Targaryen from Best Buy's site and it was in the mail before release day. (Arrived on 2/19 though.)

Guys, some good news on the Digital Copy side of things for Amazon. If you didn't use your voucher yet, try going to Amazon's Live Chat and try to offer them your code for verification. After getting jumped around in chat across seven, eight CSR's, they comp'd me an HD copy of Season 3. They did offer me the option for a replacement or a refund, but since I spent $30 on it, I would still have had to pay more for the HD copy of the Season. So, I opted for my digital copy and I am happy. Plus, I got it added to my Flixster account.

Finally came today lol.  Pretty unhappy with the wait time though, may have to call BB about that.

I can redeem on all 4 or I have to pick one?  I'm asking since I see people selling on this site but they say stuff like vudu only or itunes only...

Apparently, if you go to each individual service and use the code, it works (if testimony's to be believed). I did use an old code from my box sets I had used on HBO Select for Amazon Instant Video, and I got unlocks on Vudu and Flixster. So the codes don't seem to be invalidated except by expiration dates.
