Even though it's a pre-order, you can still schedule an in store pick-up.

You can get a "free iphone skin" too with the pre-order. I didn't realize until after putting in the order but not a big loss as I don't do iphone.......

9 times out of 10 you can still just walk up to the display and pick it up on release day.

I preordered mine today. Nice price!

Nope, can't bring myself to do it. This movie was so bad I'm not even tempted at $12.99. Thanks for posting the deal though, I'd just at almost any other title! ;)

Thanks, got one.. what do you guys think the chances are that this is a pricing error like the Starcraft 2 on their site the other day for 5 bucks lol. This one is far more likely to be real though.

No, the page says this

Clash of the Titans[Widescreen] - Blu-ray Disc
SKU: 1006596 | Release Date: 7/27/2010

Says further down that the dvd is 16.99

Yeah, I know all of the item description information says that, but at the top of my browser, it shows the title I mentioned previously. Just sayin', seems to be some type of error either way with the item's page on the website, but hopefully not.

ahh didn't see that, good eye

Hopefully they honor it since it really isn't that much of a loss.. Not like the starcraft 2 at 5 bucks which was a 55 dollar loss lol

I hope they have great special features like "The making of a crappy movie" and "Why Ray Harryhausen would be rolling over in his grave if he was dead" and "Evidence--Why movies shouldn't be remade."

Seriously though, I'm in at this price. But it really didn't do justice to the original... Thanks for the post, OP!

He is retired but far far from dead.

It still showed as availble for west hollywood, Burbank, and westwood. Its a bit of a distance from Irvine but if you really want it for that price its a option

EDIT now even west hollywood burbank and westwood are unavailble as well, so perhaps they sold out all the pre orders each store was alotted. just cross fingers they dont start canceling orders.

So I wonder if was a deal of the day or something or if it was indeed an error.
in any case as long as its honored I will be happy. Have my amazon order on standby just in case.

Probably an error.

At least I got my order in for 12 copies.

Since shipping was free, I ordered one shipped. Since when can you set up in-store pick-up for online pre-orders anyway?

I even went for the Bing 3% cashback, just in case. So far no confirmation email on that yet though.

Was your card truly charged or was it just a temporary hold? I have never had BB actually put through the charge until the item shipped.

AmityBoatTours
07-08-10, 09:11 PM
So if bestbuy was going to cancel all the 12.99 pre orders, would they have done so by now? or does it take a few days.

g
07-08-10, 09:27 PM
I doubt they will cancel this. The price is not ridiculous like 1.99.

MovieJunkie916
07-08-10, 09:46 PM
That $12.99 sale price could be due to a combination of a lack of pre-orders and the bad reviews the movie has been given. Quick and easy way to sell some copies? If so, it seems to have worked.

Umm, sure - if only Blu ray prices were based on movie reviews.

otherwise TF2 would have gone cheap...and depending how cheap I may have gotten it JUST for the prologue to the plot of the film. Badass 10 or so minutes of action there.

No its gone through completely. And I did store pickup.

But that may be that if they did do this to drum up sales they don't want people to decide not to get it when it comes out.

Don't worry. I didn't get in on this deal so most likely it won't get canceled. Generally speaking orders are only canceled if I get in on a deal (i.e. like the recent Gohastings BDs).

it doesn't come out until the 27th doesn't it? Why would they charge you this far in advance?

They do charge in advance if you pick it up in store.

not 3 weeks before it's released though lol... I would say a few days possibly.

Well it appears I have a charge too, there's going to be hell to pay if they charged me almost a full 3 weeks before I receive it.

Its a authorization charge it will drop off your card it will be pending till its time to ship or pick up or it will drop off your card a few days from now.

The authorization charge took place at time of order, I've never seen a subsequent authorization charge for an order that did not become a final charge. I'm not even sure if the second authorization charge is allowable by MC/VISA merchant agreements, I'll check when I get to work. In any case as to my original follow-up post it looks like the deal will be going thru.

i thought you perhaps hadnt noticed it when it you first placed the order since you said 3 weeks before release. didnt realize that it was actually after your intial authroization charge.

glassdragon
07-15-10, 04:40 PM
Yeah we got auth charges that have since dropped off. This one is a new one. Not sure why they are authing or charging again right now. Could put some people in the negative if they are using a bank card since they were expecting the charge in about 3 weeks. Didn't happen to me, but it could happen to someone.

I guess thats why even though usually stuff drops off without being recharged till right before shipment, i still factor it into money allready spent, so i dont ever end up going into the negative.

glassdragon
07-15-10, 05:31 PM
As I said, didn't happen to me. I had the money to cover it. I'm just saying that most people would reasonably expect to be charged days before receiving the item, not weeks.

I received the e-mail confirming my pre-order on July 7th and today I received the e-mail confirming that it has been processed and shipped, but I still have not been charged for it. I've checked my pending transactions, my purchase history and I've gone back and looked at my book numerous times and my account still has not shown the purchase. Just seems weird to me.

Thanks again to Roybg. Picked up the Blu Ray from the store. I actually didn't realize it was for the combo. I thought for some reason it had two separate releases, Blu ray only and the combo. Happy either way, but just a little more happier it was for the combo.

Warner's also smarted up and put the DVD of the movie and digital copy on one disc.

Picked mine up this morning, at what is definately going to be YMMV, i figured it wouldnt hurt to ask if there was anything i could do to be able to apply the 3.00 off clash of the titans coupon.
the girl at the bestbuy.com pick up counter went ahead and refunded my order, then re rung it back up and manually adjusted the price to the 12.99 pre order price and then applied the coupon.
for 9.99 plus tax. again this a big big big YMMV, but for those of you with instore pick up it doesnt hurt to ask.

I just got mine in the mail and I can hear a disk moving around. Then I read that you can't exchange for another copy in store. Is this true? I read this on the packaging slip and online at bestbuy.com. How do you return and get another copy if its a different price.
Also anyone hear something move around. Is it the dvd copy and is it normal or is mine a floater.

Can't say for sure if it's a floater, but there are two inserts in the package -- one for the digital copy code and a promo for the video game.

07-29-10, 09:30 PM
Thanks for the info. I was hoping the DVD was in a seperate cardboard package and floating in there. As the thing floating around appears to have more weight than 2 inserts.
