#11090557 Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix PS3 Fry's In-Store $19.99 AC - 10/08-10/13

Posted by rapsodist on 26 September 2013 - 05:06 PM

I went to the Fry's in Burbank yesterday and I got shot down. They took down the tag already so it wasn't marked "19.99". I showed them the picture that the OP posted. They said "Oh that must be a mistake. Hold on one sec." The sales rep calls I don't know who. 3 minutes later he's off the phone and tells me "Yea that was a mistake made by corporate and I can't sell you that game at that price." Then I head over to Best Buy and try my luck there. They ended up calling Fry's and hearing the same story. Ugh lol 

Sorry to hear that! When I was there, they grabbed the tag off the shelf, but I presumed it was just to confirm it at customer service. At no point during my price adjustment process did they ever indicate that it was an error. I guess we do kind of know the truth, but it sucks that Fry's is trying to make its customers jump through hoops to get this sale price.

Freakbeat Records in Sherman Oaks is having their 5th anniversary sale through Monday. 50% off all CDs priced 6.99 and under, 20% off all CDs priced 7.99 and above. As a record shop devotee, I think this annual sale is arguably the best in L.A. County despite the store's relative lack of size.

For $51, I nabbed 15 albums:

Fiona Apple - When the Pawn...
Boogie Down Productions - Ghetto Music: The Blueprint of Hip Hop
Brandi Carlile - Brandi Carlile
The Concretes - In Colour
Norah Jones - Come Away with Me
Leonard Cohen - Songs of Leonard Cohen [EU Deluxe Limited Edition] sealed
The Jesus and Mary Chain - Darklands
Leaders of the New School - A Future Without a Past...
Mojave 3 - Ask Me Tomorrow
Pernice Brothers - Live a Little
Dusty Springfield - Dusty in Memphis
Booker T. & the M.G.'s - The Best of Booker T. & the M.G.'s [Atlantic]
George Thorogood & the Destroyers - Bad to the Bone [25th Anniversary Edition] sealed
TV on the Radio - Return to Cookie Mountain
Ohmega Watts - Watts Happening [2-Disc Edition]

Man, I need to stop by Amoeba again. I've been sitting on a gift certificate for a year!

In the meantime, BMG Music Club had a great deal for me: Buy 1 Get 4 Free Plus Triple Music Points (which easily garnered another free CD). Including tax and shipping, that came out to just under $6 an album. I decided to pick up some older stuff that was conspicuously missing from my collection:

Black Eyed Peas - Behind the Front
Black Sabbath - Paranoid
David Bowie - Heroes
Cream - Fresh Cream
Daft Punk - Discovery
Derek & the Dominos - Layla
Iron Maiden - The Number of the Beast
Sparklehorse - Dreamt for Light Years in the Belly of a Mountain
Starflyer 59 - Talking Voice vs. Singing Voice
The Who - The Who Sell Out
