Starting this to cover the titles not already listed in the weekly ad threads...


I will start this off with today's find...

Wyatt Earp $4.99 (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Wyatt+Earp+-+Widescreen+Dubbed+Subtitle+AC3+-+Blu-ray+Disc/8495559.p?id=54500&skuId=8495559&st=wyatt earp blu&lp=1&cp=1)

The Conversation $7.99

Was just thinking about this one yesterday; I don't believe I've seen it cheaper. I'm jumping on it today.

EDIT: Cold Mountain and Shakespeare in Love also $7.99 on the web site. For those not able to locate them during the upgrade and save, this beats amazon's prices by two bucks.

DOUBLE EDIT: Just submitted $7.99 on all three to amazon. Hoping they match as I'd rather buy from them (and I have Shakespeare on pre-order).

Stake Land is $9.99. Too bad the Upgrade promotion expired. I would have been all over this for a fin.

Thanks for the heads up. Ordered with a $5 RZ cert. for $5.33 shipped. None of the stores in my area are showing as having it in stock, so free shipping sealed the deal.

Great idea for a thread on the whole, but for me the online deals especially. There are online discounts at BB that go MIA and more and more titles are becoming online only, so this thread is welcome. Thanks B2!

Cool, thanks for mentioning this! I reported this to Amazon, hoping they'll PM... I did notice that Amazon had Red State for $13.99 earlier today. I missed it, but I saw the note that the price had changed from 13.99 to 19.99. I'll probably get it at BB for $11.99 if Amazon doesn't match it by the end of the week...

Just ordered 10 titles, most for in-store pickup. Brothers was the only one that was not available for in-store pickup.

I also found 2 or 3 other titles that I need to pricematch (5 in total). Time to track down all my receipts.

I'm in a similar situation. I'm going to try and do the return and rebuy option in store as The Conversation is back in stock at the local Best Buy.

Also for 3 of the $5.99 titles (Shakespeare in Love, Serendipity, She's All That) there is a $2 off coupon from coupons.com that bumps the price down to $3.99 + tax.

Pretty sure that it has to do with the fact that Disney isn't the distributor anymore. Pretty much all of the Miramax stuff has dropped like a stone since Lions Gate took over.

Stopped by Best Buy during lunch and they had tags for every $5.99 and $7.99 title listed online. Of course several were already out of stock. I picked up:

Serendipity $3.99 (with $2 coupon)

Rounders $5.99
Adverntureland $7.99
Winter's Bone $7.99

I was able to get a price adjustment on a BB.com order I placed 9 days ago for Red State. I called over the phone, and they credited me $4. I didn't need to return it and repurchase it. Granted, I didn't get the tax back for some reason, but I won't cry over 22 cents.

Then on lunch I got:
Serendipity $3.99 (with $2 coupon)
Shakespeare In Love $3.99 (with $2 coupon)
She's All That $3.99 (with $2 coupon)
Trainspotting $5.99
used a $10 RZ cert, and a GC, so paid nothing out of pocket. :)

They still had copies of everything left at the Men. Falls store.

I didn't watch it yet, but Kevin Smith showed a long clip (8 minutes or so) at SDCC, and it looked AWESOME!!! I bought it at the $11.99 price (which I have now adjusted) so to me, $7.99 is a no brainer for a Kevin Smith fan (even though this is not a typical Kevin Smith movie, but his commentary track surely will be typical.) But I can't say for sure that the movie is any good. I should state that I really enjoyed Jersey Girl as well, which has lots of haters.

I just got a Chevy Chase combo with Funny Farm and Spies Like Us. It was in a $7.99 dump bin but rang up at $4.99. Not sure if that's been listed/mentioned anywhere. If you're a fan of stupid 80's comedies you could do a lot worse.

Any issue using manufacturer's coupons and RZ cert at the same time? Do you know if it matters what order they scan them in?

I'd recommend giving the mfg. coupon first. Both are considered like cash. If your total is $10 and you give a $10 RZ cert first, then your balance would be $0 and I don't think the mfg. coupon would work. If it's $7 - $5 RZ cert - $2 mfg. coupon it should be fine in either order, but the mfg. coupon first is safest.

If it's $7 - $5 RZ cert - $2 mfg. coupon it should be fine in either order, but the mfg. coupon first is safest.
From what I saw yesterday, you can't give the coupons first. I tried this yesterday, and the system would not accept the RZ cert. He was kinda pissed that he had to start the entire transaction over. RZ cert must be applied first, then the coupons. Granted, they do have multiple ways to apply coupons. The $2 ones did not scan, and would not be accepted when the coupon UPC was manually entered, so he manually added two coupons. But if they just change the item price, then I don't think the order will matter.

Another reason for RZ certs first is if the price will drop below zero. RZ certs cannot exceed the item price. So if you have a $6.99 title, $5 RZ cert, and $2 coupon, you cannot use a $5 RZ cert on $4.99. The system will not allow it (assuming they haven't changed that in the last 6 months, when I had an issue). So you'd want the RZ cert first anyway, making the item $1.99, then I believe the coupon will be accepted even though it exceeds the item price.

Still thinking about Red State, the reviews haven't won me over.I know these things are subjective, but it's freaking gawdawful (http://dirkflix.blogspot.com/2011/12/red-state-review.html). If you thought Cop Out was a sign that Kevin Smith was losing his mind, Red State is definitive proof that he as crawled up his own fat arse and died. I guess when you have 2 million Twitter followers, you can sell out college auditoriums for your Q&As where your fawning fans bloke smoke up your bunghole, and you're constantly high you'll feel you can do whatever you want and enough people will like it that it doesn't matter how good it is.

I'm a fan of Smith's since Clerks and LOVED Chasing Amy and thought Jersey Girl was sweet, but after the tag team of Cop Out and Red State he could never make another movie and I'd be fine with it. Sad, when Harvey Weinstein would rather try and sell a movie directed by Madonna over one from his greatest discoveries, that's a sign you're not doing well.

I couldn't disagree more. I really enjoyed the movie and thought it was a good look at religious fanatic groups.

And you do realize that Kevin smith did not write cop out right? He just directed it, so he had no real control over the story and where it went. You can't really put that in the same class as all of the other movies that he both wrote and directed.

I'm Christian, and I liked a lot of Red State. Although, admittedly, the (excellent) actors had to make it work, since the writing was a confused jumble of interested, half-baked ideas. In addition to Parks, I thought that John Goodman and the lead girl (Parks' daughter) were very good.

ETA: I just read your review, Dirk - you get the name of the lead actor wrong (Michael Parks, not Michael Banks).

Went to bestbuy today and picked up Cold Mountain,Gangs Of New York (remastered release),Stargate (15 Anniversary Edtition),The Conversation,Shakespear In Love with slipcover. Debating whether I should go back and pick up The Ultimate Avengers Collection and From Paris With Love. Someone gave me the dvd of From Paris With Love as a present and I still have it sealed. Im debating whether I should upgrade it since I still haven't watched the movie so im not sure if its any good or not. Is Chicago worth purchasing as a blind buy? This sale and the past trade & save sale bestbuy had are killing my wallet since most of my purchases are upgrades from previous dvd's. Seems like Im going on an upgrade frenzy since some of these prices are to good to pass up. :rolleyes:

When I saw Cold Mountain BD for $5.99 at BB, I debated buying it for a while, but I decided (as someone else said) that it didn't have enough rewatch value for $5.99. Then I was at Target getting The Office BDs for $9.99 each and noticed a new Cold Mountain BD on the clearance shelf for $2.56, so I decided that's about what it's worth. I almost never see BDs in Target's clearance, so it must've been a fluke.

I recently saw a Jeff Dunham DVD on clearance at a Target for $2.56, and also assumed it was an online item returned. But then I went to another Target the same day, and saw the exact same title on clearance for $2.56. So I no longer believe they must be web returns, since the odds of 2 different stores having the same unpopular DVD title on clearance the exact same day from 2 different web returns, is next to impossible...

The director has control of how the material comes together, but if he didn't write the material, I wouldn't say he has complete control over the final product. There's only so much a director can do with the material provided. So no, it isn't fair to compare Cop Out to a film which he both wrote AND directed. It isn't a fair comparison. But yes, he is definitely partly to blame for the failure of Cop Out...

i'll bet you're christianNot particularly - I'm a twice-a-year Catholic - but it's illustrative that a viewer's enjoyment of Red State may track with their hatred for Christians. That you automatically assumed that my problems were because I may be Christian bespeaks your bigotry against people of faith. Got it.

ETA: I just read your review, Dirk - you get the name of the lead actor wrong (Michael Parks, not Michael Banks).Thanks for the correction. I hated the movie and tossed up the review in a rush and didn't notice the error. Not sure where I got Banks from; Elizabeth, perhaps?

You're much to charitable to the writing for it's sloppy, dated, lazy, and reliant on an audience predisposed to hating the subjects based on the cartoons Smith made them be. It's shooting fish in a barrel, using every hackish stereotypical trope - Jeebus freaks? Check. Southern rednecks? Check. A secretly gay guy? Yep. (Is there something Kevin would like to share with the class?) Genocidal Federal agents slaughtering everyone because that's what they do, right? 10-4! - to tell a story that begins with no credibility and sails into psychotic territory. The premise of a pair of angels trying to end the world and a Golgothan Sh*t Demon are more believable than anything in Red State.

What purpose did Stephen Root's gay sheriff serve? He's a cheap joke about hypocrisy and then *SPOILER* gets killed. If he wasn't in the movie at all, would anything be different? If the crazed Jeebus freaks were kidnapping and killing "sinners", you'd think someone back in town would've noticed people missing. What if it had been a cautionary tale about the dangers of cheap promiscuity where the kids learn a valuable lesson about staying off the Internet AND they get to call out the evil preacher on his tactics by screaming, "What ever happened to thou shalt not kill? Who do you think you are in passing God's judgement in his stead?!?" Not a great plot, but hella better than what Smith pinched off and filmed.

What purpose did Stephen Root's gay sheriff serve? He's a cheap joke about hypocrisy and then gets killed . If he wasn't in the movie at all, would anything be different? If the crazed Jeebus freaks were kidnapping and killing "sinners", you'd think someone back in town would've noticed people missing. What if it had been a cautionary tale about the dangers of cheap promiscuity where the kids learn a valuable lesson about staying off the Internet AND they get to call out the evil preacher on his tactics by screaming, "What ever happened to thou shalt not kill? Who do you think you are in passing God's judgement in his stead?!?" Not a great plot, but hella better than what Smith pinched off and filmed.
Dude, seriously, if you're gonna post a spoiler, then use an actual spoiler tag!!! I liked your Dogma reference though. Strangely enough, that's the only Kevin Smith movie I hated! I just thought it was stupid... Except for the opening part supposedly in Milwaukee, which sooooooooo didn't look like Milwaukee. But nobody would know, except those who have been there...

It's kind of hard to notice people missing when the people they are taking aren't even from that town, they are lured in with ads like the kids were. That point is pretty, well, pointless.

The director has control of how the material comes together, but if he didn't write the material, I wouldn't say he has complete control over the final product.

He absolutely does. Most screenwriters aren't even allowed on movie sets.

Did it say "Online Item" or "AS IS" on the clearance tag? Those are the only kind of BD's I've seen on clearance endcaps at Target.
It does say "Online Item". I didn't notice that before. What does it mean? Someone returned an online purchased item to the store and they stuck it on the clearance shelf instead of sending it back as I thought they would?

Any issue using manufacturer's coupons and RZ cert at the same time? Do you know if it matters what order they scan them in?
There should be no problem, as RZ certs are considered cash. However, order does matter. For Best Buy's POS system, they need to be entered in the following order:

Best Buy coupons
Best Buy RZ Certs
Manufacturer's coupons

Yes, it means it was a Target.com purchase that was returned to the store, and it's probably not something that they keep in stock in the store regularly. When that happens, they stick it on the clearance endcap at a greatly reduced rate.

He absolutely does. Most screenwriters aren't even allowed on movie sets.
I worked more in television than film. In TV, unless given permission to take some liberties or allow adlibbing, the director typically is not allowed to change the script. The script supervisor makes sure every line of dialogue is said correctly. I assume comedies may have more liberties with dialogue than dramas. Regardless, the director does not have "complete control" if they are forced to follow a script that they did not write. They can try to make things work with creative editing, but they're still working with someone else's story. There is no way that can be considered "complete control." If the script says "the butler did it", the director cannot say "hmmm, I think I'd rather have the maid be the killer" unless he ran that by the producers, who would then likely run it by the screenwriter. And he could be told NO, the butler definitely did it. That isn't complete control.

I think they use it more loosely. More likely, an "online item" was not returned, but is just merchandise they somehow receive in stock, but don't normally carry in store. Luckily for us, they usually post a really low price sticker on it and stick it on the clearance endcap. Like someone else posted, there are usually multiples across different stores, so not just one off returns.

If someone wants Sesame Street Once Upon a Monster for Xbox 360, that's $9.99 too.

Great prices, but unfortunately I already had Death Race, Pelican Brief, and Blues Brothers BDs. I think they're all sold out now except for Blues Brothers in some stores. I ordered the other 2 for $9.99 each although that exceeds my normal price point. I guess Rise of the Planet of the Apes is not a combo pack which is OK as long as there are no exclusive extras on the DVD.

Also, both Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Mr. Popper's Penguins appear to be price mistakes because they are under the $19.99 sale link online. That means they could cancel orders, so to increase my chances I did both an online order and an in-store pickup. If the online one ships, I just won't pick up my in-store one.

I went through the sale BDs at $7.99 and there's nothing I want, but I found it weird that if you sort by price and go down about half way, starting with Spaceballs there are 7 BDs listed as Pan & Scan or Full Screen. Weird... I didn't know they made Pan & Scan BDs of movies.

I noticed Spy Kids 3: Game Over in 3D for $7.99, but I don't see a 3D Blu-Ray logo so I take it to be worthless anaglyph 3D?

I tried this, but the store cannot apply a manufacturer's coupon to an online order.

That said, I was able to call BestBuy online and they gave me a $5 credit for the coupon. So the Blu-ray ended up costing me only $5 out of pocket. Nice!

For those who haven't done the Mr Popper's Penguin deal yet, just go to the store and buy it. They DO have it marked as $9.99 on the shelf, and then you can use the coupons.com $5 coupon right there--getting it for $4.99 out of the door!

I'll first ask if they'll apply the $5 off coupon to my ISP purchase, but 99% likely the answer will no... if not because they say that's not allowed on online orders then probably because they like to claim their system won't allow them to adjust (or return) ISP orders until several hours afterwards. At least I've been given that excuse before. In this day and age of computers and networking to think their system takes hours to update is hard to believe... only true if they want it to be that slow. So if they say no, using the coupon will all depend whether there any are left on the shelf at $9.99 tomorrow. Well, if that totally fails I could call up BB RZ and see if they'll give me a $5 credit like they did for JuryDuty, but I've had pretty bad luck getting credits when I've called. I do know I'm not driving to the mall today just for $5 but waiting until I pass by there tomorrow on my way to work. Time and gas alone is worth more than $5 to me.

But thanks for the info. It's good to know there is a $5 coupon which I'll try to print today and we'll see what happens tomorrow. Going to BB is always an interesting and unpredictable experience. Like Forest Gump might say, "BB is like a box of chocolates... you never know what's gonna happen next".

Well, I ended up getting most of what I wanted in store surprisingly. They were all out of Death Race, but I didn't really need/want it anyway. Pelican Brief scanned for $7.99 with their price checker, but doing a sku search with their in store kiosk still showed $2.99 - so an easy PM. Blues Brothers were on their $9.99 sale display, but had a $4.99 sale place card underneath saying Blues Brothers blu - so another easy price override since it scanned at $9.99 (also $4.99 on kiosk). Mr Popper's penguins scanned at $9.99 - $4.99 after coupon. Also got Sin City for $6.99. After using $15 RZ certs it was $5 oop. Not bad imho.

Looks like the price mistakes have been fixed online, so they aren't on sale any more. It appears they were marked at $9.99 in stores today, but it's likely they will update the store tags tomorrow. Most likely (now that I have the Mr. Popper's Penguins $5 coupon) I won't be able to use it tomorrow, and if they did a return/rebuy of my Sunday online order they'd probably try to charge me the new higher price.

Good job sotra going there today while the price mistakes were still in effect. I should've done that, but I just didn't feel like a long drive today (BB is 10 miles away whereas Target is 2 miles), so I risked that this would happen, and it would appear I lost the $5 coupon by doing so. We'll see what happens when I get to BB tomorrow morning. I doubt I'll find any $9.99 Mr. Popper's BD shelf tags.

BB didn't send me any cancellation emails yet, so maybe they'll allow the already placed Sunday orders to go through?

The only one that had a sale price tag was Blues Brothers. Mr Popper's Penguins rang up right, but will probably be the correct sale price by now. With Death Race and Pelican Brief you might get lucky since the instore kiosk is not updated as often as the website. When I went I had already checked the prices online and they all had been updated, but the kiosk ended up not being. So, the trick is to check by sku the ones you are interested in yoursef first and then if any show up the "right" price try and get a bby employee over to the kiosk.

I thought the "kiosk" was just hooked up to BestBuy.com, so I thought I'd see the same prices I would if I looked online from home. Are you saying that may not be the case or am I getting the kiosk confused with some other in-store computer you can access the Internet on?

As expected BB denied the $5 Mr. Popper's coupon after the fact on the online ISP purchase and told me to call the toll free RZ number about it which I haven't tried yet. I also picked up my ISP orders for ROTPOTA for $9.99 and 99c Death Race BDs. All shelf tags had been changed on Mr. Popper's, as expected. The kiosk they showed me looked 100% identical to the BBY.com web site, so it felt like a waste of time to try it hoping it would have different prices.

They PM'd Clash of the Titans 3D for $14.99, but it doesn't appear to have the movie money. The guy claimed it was supposed to be inside. Is that correct even if it doesn't have a sticker? I still haven't decided if I want to keep this 3D one given that I have the 2D release unopened. Depends if I can get rid of the 2D one.

I thought so too, but it appeared, at least when I went that it was updated later than their website. The kiosk in my local store is located over by the music an movies and has a starting page with blue background with a search box in the middle saying search by keyword, name, sku etc.

From what I have read elsewhere, the movie money is located on the 2d version only. Like most other movie money deals, there should be a sticker on the outside. Nothing inside. Looks like a BBY misprint on what should have been on sale.

Also, I would read some reviews before opening the 3d version. From what I have seen the 3d version has gotten some pretty low marks.

But despite all these claims, the disc looks absolutely terrible - its no better than an upconverted DVD. With current restorations from Paramount, Warner and Universal, Sony should be ashamed to call this Full 1080p. This is a royal rip off and I feel very cheated in this claim.

I'm gonna have to take another look at my "remastered" Fifth Element Blu-ray, but from what I remember, it looked pretty good--"grainy" in some areas (dark areas) but this was due to Luc's filming and was not indicative of a bad transfer, and was certainly an upgrade from the DVD.

I could be wrong, but I still have the Blu-ray, which is a good sign because a shitty transfer Blu-ray I normally toss in the trash.

Thanks for the info. I was going to use a $5 U&S coupon on this, but since the pre-order price is cheaper than the sale price - the coupon, I pre-ordered it. I'm expecting this to be canceled since the DVD and Blu is the same price.

I posted this on another site, but I thought some people here might be interested. The 3D starter kit that includes 5 dreamworks 3d Blu Rays (4 Shrek movies and Megamind) is on clearance at best buy for $49.99 and as of earlier this morning was still available in the stores around me (Long Beach, CA). Pretty good deal for just the movies and if you don't need the glasses (I have a passive 3d Tv) you can always resale to make the deal even better. I can't post links yet, but if you look up 3d Starter Kit on best buy it will pop up as $179, but change to $49.99 when you add to cart. Also, the description is wrong. There are no vouchers for the last 2 movies. They are all included in the box.

They work in standard blu ray player too. At least Megamind did for me. That's the only one I've checked so far in non 3d.

Edit: I just checked Shrek and it plays fine too in non 3d.

I also just sold the glasses on Amazon, so in the long run the price is cut in half for me.

Oh definitely, I actually found An American Werewolf in London today, but it rang up at $19.99. Asked for a website price match and the price showed at $14.99. A couple of days ago it was $9.99, needless to say I didn't buy it.

I typed in 3D Starter Kit on BB's web site, and I didn't see the Dreamworks pack listed. Did it sell out already and get deleted from their web site? If I didn't already own (and hadn't already opened) the 2D versions of Shrek the Whole Story and Megamind, it would be a no-brainer if I could find this pack. My guess is few stores would have these left anyway, and it seems there's no way to check inventory online.

Also, it was stated these 3D BDs contain the 2D versions of each movie on the same disc. The remaining question is: do these special 2D/3D BDs drop some or all of the normal extras on the 2D-only version? (My guess would be yes but I'd like to know for sure). Thanks.

There are ZERO special features. Picked up a set and already sold the glasses for more than what I payed for the set, so I came out pretty well. Added the 3D versions of all 5 movies to my collection for nada.

The online store locator isn't very accurate. In fact, iirc, it shows the store inventory as 'zero" whenever it dips below two or three.

Over the years, I've found dozens of things at stores that showed up as not available there.

Yes, I'm aware of that, but I checked my local store and found none. Other stores are 50 miles or more round trip and not worth checking out unless we have errands around those. Guess I'll stick with the 2d versions.

My closest BB is always OOS, but the next closest has 1 of the Samsung 3D Starter Kits and is holding it for me today in case I decided to go. So, is there a way to tell by looking at the package (given they have the same UPC) whether it has all 5 movies or 3 movies + 2 vouchers? Madmod20061 mentioned looking at the side of the box... will that say either all 5 movies or 3 movies + voucher?

Too bad no answers on whether the voucher is mentioned on the side of the Samsung 3D Starter kit box. That forces me to call the store again (takes 2-3 minutes before they usually bother to answer their phones) and hope if it doesn't mention vouchers that there aren't any. It is hard to believe that a product with the same UPC would be different in any way on the contents listed on the side, so once again how do I know if a box has a voucher inside?

Wedding Crashers - $4.99 (just traded in my DVD for $5)
Where can you trade in an opened Wedding Crashers DVD for $4.99? It's worth $1.15 new at Amazon and less for used. Perhaps you're counting yesterday's Upgrade & Save trade-ins as being worth $5 per DVD and you knew yesterday that the BD would be available today for $4.99? I only trade in junk DVDs worth $1 or less so I look at U&S as a $4 discount putting the BD prices at BB closer to where they should be rather than as each DVD being worth $5. If there is a place to trade it for $4.99 I'd surely like to know.

My box said the contents were 2 pairs of glasses and the 5 movies. I assume (but do not _know_) that the other version would say something about a voucher.
I bought the 3D Starter Kit (they had 2 and both were identical) and there was no mention of the vouchers on the side. Could anyone who ended up getting the vouchers please look at your box and see if vouchers are mentioned anywhere?

Another alternative would be... could anyone with either version and all of the contents in the box please weigh the box on an accurate scale and post how much that version weighs? Mine is 20.5 ounces. I'd really like to know if I got the voucher or non-voucher version as I don't want to have to deal with vouchers, but once I open it I'm stuck... or are the individual movies shrinkwrapped inside?

There are a load of auctions for the Samsung 3D galsses on eBay but many never sold, some got really low and others really high prices. Once the box is opened, I'm afraid these would have to be sold as opened, unused and untested (as I don't have an active 3D TV), so I'm doubtful these would net more than $20 on eBay under those circumstances.

Puyallup WA has Alien Anthology for $39.95, according to the tag, the price is good 'til June 23. Also the individual titles in the series were $9.99 each.
I saw this at mine as well, so I think it's nationwide. The problem (for me) is that the first 2 movies are worth $10 each to me with the extras, but the 2nd 2 are barely worth $5, so I passed and I'm going to hold out for $30 on the anthology.

My box said the contents were 2 pairs of glasses and the 5 movies. I assume (but do not _know_) that the other version would say something about a voucher.

I believed at your assumption :D and got all 5 within box (upon opening it)

Thank You Very Much!

I bought the 3D Starter Kit (they had 2 and both were identical) and there was no mention of the vouchers on the side. Could anyone who ended up getting the vouchers please look at your box and see if vouchers are mentioned anywhere?

Another alternative would be... could anyone with either version and all of the contents in the box please weigh the box on an accurate scale and post how much that version weighs? Mine is 20.5 ounces. I'd really like to know if I got the voucher or non-voucher version as I don't want to have to deal with vouchers, but once I open it I'm stuck... or are the individual movies shrinkwrapped inside?

There are a load of auctions for the Samsung 3D galsses on eBay but many never sold, some got really low and others really high prices. Once the box is opened, I'm afraid these would have to be sold as opened, unused and untested (as I don't have an active 3D TV), so I'm doubtful these would net more than $20 on eBay under those circumstances.

Movies in the box are shrinkwrapped.

I sold each pair of glasses for $30 each plus $5 shipping on amazon. Gave the guy a shipping credit back of $5 for buying two pairs. So sold two pairs for $65 minus amazon fees and my shipping costs.

As soon as I got home, I listed my 3D glasses from the Samsung set on Amazon for $27.75 each. Sold late last night. Even after Amazon's cut and shipping I should make back enough to pay for the entire set. 5 free 3D Blu-ray's = my deal of the year so far, even if it took a little work.

The Deer Hunter is currently $9.99 and with the Universal coupon its $6.99 which is a pretty good deal on a great movie.

No one's mentioned the Mel Brooks Collection (9 movies) for $39.99? Got it yesterday.

Also, Sucker Punch should be on the $4.99 list.

I see 2 listings for the MB Blu-ray collection, one with a release date last week. The price is different based on the release date ... I see the same at Amazon.

What is different about the re-release?

I'll answer my own question.

The new set appears to come in a standard blu-type case, whereas the previous version came in what appeared to be an oversized childrens book.

SoonerDoc and Quake1028, did you list your Samsung 3D glasses as new and untested (with no returns accepted?) or as opened/unused/untested, or did you test them to verify they work? I have no way to test them. So what would happen if I sold them and then the buyer said they don't work?

I'd be happy to net $40-$50 from selling the glasses which would mostly pay for the set, but I saw lots on auctions for less on eBay that never got any bids. I don't even know how to sell on Amazon. Can anyone do that or do you have to be an established vendor with a reputation (like an eBay feedback)? I'll probably stick with eBay since I know how that works.

It's good that movies are shrinkwrapped. I hope if I open it and see I got vouchers that BB would accept a return in spite of the box being opened. I was hoping that someone who still has all the parts (like Quake1028 if he hasn't mailed his already) could put the box and all the contents on a scale and see if they matched what mine weighed. If it's missing 2 BDs that should show up as a weight difference, but it doesn't look like anyone is going to weigh theirs. Maybe everyone doesn't have an accurate postal scale or everyone has already sold off their glasses?

I noticed a display at Best Buy today for the first time. The following movies are all $9.99, and they include $10 movie cash to see Prometheus. So the films are basically free after movie cash. I forget what the end date was, but I believe the sale prices were good until early June. Check your stores for details. As far as ordering online, I'm not sure if you'll get the movie cash, but you could always try.

Yup. Which would be my preference, anyway. (The smaller case.)

Looks like Amazon has it at $48.

Selling on Amazon is easy. Way easier than ebay. I can have an Amazon listing done in about 30 seconds. They take a bigger cut than ebay, especially for small ticket items, but it's so worth it to not have to deal with the hassle of non paying bidders, etc.

Manzana there is a button on the product page that says something like "have one, sell it now" it will have you set up the seller account but like Obi said its pretty painless.

Basically set it and forget itŠ

Obi-Wan Jabroni and whotony, thanks for the info. Hopefully I can easily find how much more of a cut Amazon takes than eBay. I still have a couple questions (for anyone):

For those who have sold the 2 3D glasses from the Samsung 3D Starter Kit on eBay or Amazon for $25-$30-ish each, did you list the items as new or used, tested or untested (if you have an active 3D TV which I don't), and did you say you'd allow returns in case the glasses don't work? Normally I sell media which always works, but in this case it's untested electronics and I don't know what would happen if one didn't work. I wonder if I should take the glasses to a store and see if they'd let me test them on a Samsung active 3D TV.

And how do you avoid non-paying bidders on Amazon and how does the feedback work? Well, I'm sure that's answered on Amazon's site, so I guess I'll have to do a little reading unless someone wants to quickly summarize. And here I always thought that Amazon Marketplace was only for sellers who had business licenses. eBay isn't that much more work, especially since a load of these auctions already exist and I can just copy most of the text. The big question is what to do with the new/used and returns allowed aspect.

I haven't tried to sell on eBay in years. I just actually got an email from them saying congrats on 12 years of eBay selling, whatever.

Never had a problem on eBay but probably because I stopped selling when they made it easy for buyers to get their money back just by saying they never got the item.

There seems to be a different set of people who buy on Amazon.
Plus there is no bidding so you just buy it. No sniping and no shady stuff going on.

^^ Amazon is not bidders/auctions. You classify the item yourself (new, used like new, good etc), put in a detailed description to cover yourself, select which shipping methods you accept and put a price down. You get paid and Amazon gives you the buyer's address on a packing slip you print out and ship with the item. Then every 2 weeks you get paid the total you have earned. You are limited to stuff in Amazon's catalogue (search by UPC etc) and when you list an item it will tell you how much shipping credit and how much you will get paid for the various shipping options.

Obi-Wan Jabroni
05-15-12, 10:08 AM
^Actually, the money is put in your amazon seller account as soon as your mark the item as shipped. It's transferred automatically to your bank account every 2 weeks, but you can request a transfer at any time (so if you're only selling one item, you don't have to wait 2 weeks to get paid).

As far as feedback, there is seller feedback, but I don't think most people worry about it. I've sold probably over a hunded items and I think I only have like 20 or so ratings from buyers.

You have to pay the shipping costs when you ship obviously, but since you'll be new, you won't get your money for at least 14 days. Make sure you accurately grade the item's condition, because if it does not meet the grading guidelines that Amazon makes, the customer can return it (or if you refuse to accept the return, they can file an AZ Claim and perhaps get to keep the item and get their money back). You have to accept returns, for any reason, for at least 30 days after the sale or delivery date (can't remember which one). Amazon handles the payment, so if there is any problem with the credit card, Amazon catches it and tells you not to ship the item yet. I've rarely had an issue of a non-paying buyer, and when I did, Amazon caught it and immediately sent me a "do not ship" message.

Basically, make sure you read all of the terms you're agreeing to before you sell. You have to play by Amazon's rules, and if you don't, you can be banned from ever selling there again.

I use Half.com myself (magkick). Coverage is not as wide as Amazon but I do a good bit of business on there. They pay a decent amount for shipping and take 15% for commission. Plus, I have a built up feedback rating which I really don't feel like resetting on Amazon. And then if I have a special item which does not meet Half.com's listing, then I just go on Ebay with the same feedback. Works for me :)

Ah, Amazon says it's 14 days for new sellers... I may be thinking of electronics sellers. I've seen a bunch of people complain that Amazon is holding their money because they sold a lot or sold electronics and Amazon holds the money for up to 30 days to make sure that the customers are getting products that are genuine and actually work. Sorry about the confusion.

The big question is what to do with the new/used and returns allowed aspect.

I sell on ebay maybe once a year. I use amazon almost exclusively. I have sold mainly DVD/Bluray/Video Games and some electronics. I rarely have problems. On the rare occasion I get a complaint, I refer the customer back to my product description or to amazon return policies and that usually takes care of it. VERY rarely I have given the customer a small refund concession to keep a product, but if you describe the product appropriately, you shouldn't run into any problems. My lifetime feedback rating is 99% with 149 positives, 1 neutral and 1 negative (from 5 years ago).

Here is the description I used for listing the glasses. I never say the product is factory sealed unless it is factory sealed.

Brand New, Came out of Samsung 3D Starter Kit, Still has Protective Film on Lenses, Includes Unopened Battery and Cleaning Cloth, Check My Feedback!! (discounted shipping if order more than one pair....will refund shipping charges on 2nd pair)

Just a word of caution...customers aren't required to read your listing notes. That's why I suggested making sure your product condition meets all of the guidelines Amazon has set for whatever condition you choose. For example, if you sell a DVD as "like new" that runs perfectly, was never watched, but the case is broken or the cover art is damaged, putting those details in your listing notes won't help you in an AZ claim or allow you to deny a refund because the customer got exactly what you wrote they would.

Isn't there always that someone that's going to beat your listing price by a penny or more the moment you list your item (on Amazon). Your item could sit there forever if you don't want to get into a price war. Just a caveat to point out from my experience on Amazon.

Agreed, but I think that's where your feedback and product listing notes come help. I'd rather pay a bit more for something when it comes from someone with good feedback and a really good description so I know exactly what I'm getting.

I've sold things that are more then a few dollars more then the cheapest. My 100% surely helps and only one review was less then 5 stars, it was 4.5.

My Samsung 3D Starter kit said something like "3 discs plus 2 vouchers" on the side of the box, and it came with vouchers. So if your kit doesn't say "vouchers" on the side of the box, then all 5 discs should be inside.

Also, my kit rang up at $58.99. After putting the merchandise in my car, I walked back in with my receipt to Customer Service and had them price match the website price of $49.99, no problem.

There is also a weird thing sometimes with Amazon buyers where you take an item you haven't been able to sell for awhile, raise the price on it and suddenly it sells! This has happened to me quite a bit in all the years I've been selling at Amazon. My only guess is that someone has had it in their cart for a long time, sees the increase and panics that it's only going to get higher. Anyone else ever run into this?

Manzana, I highly recommend you sell on Amazon and not eBay. I moved from the latter over to Amazon about seven years ago and never looked back nor regretted it in the slightest.

Thanks, everyone, for some good comments. I'm still not sure how much of a cut Amazon will take, but I'll look it up and give it a try. Hopefully it's not any worse than 15%. So I need to open a seller account and read all the fine print.

SoonerDoc, thanks for the description you used. The only thing you didn't mention in it is if they had been tested to work, but I'm thinking if (as I read) Amazon requires sellers to accept returns for 30 days then there's really no point in bringing it up. I supposed I might modify yours to say: "Brand new and never used, came out of Samsung 3D Starter Kit, Still has Protective Film on Lenses, Includes Unopened Battery and Cleaning Cloth".

One difference between Amazon and eBay appears to be on eBay you can say no returns are allowed and describe the item as new but untested. That would probably get you a lower selling price, though. While on Amazon it sounds like people will assume it works, and if it doesn't then you'll end up with your glasses back in used, non-working condition, and be out the shipping costs and stuck with the glasses if you're past your return window. I guess that's incentive to hurry before my 45 days BB return period is over. This means you have to hope that Samsung 3D glasses have a low defective rate and that the buyer is honest.

Todd B., thanks so much for the clarification on the "3 discs plus 2 vouchers" on the side of the box that I'd been hoping someone would post. It's nice to know that even though the UPCs may be the same that Samsung took the time to put accurate info on the side of the box.

Guess I've got some work to do on Amazon tomorrow to set up this sale, and I should probably figure if I can sell each for $25 + shipping and clear $20 x 2, that I'm lucky and the kit was still a good deal for the 3D BD versions of these movies that I already own in 2D.
