I have the original and I paid 5 bucks for a number of years ago it. I'm good.

Not a bad deal on the Mummy movies, they just really aren't good movies.

The First Mummy was good fun.
Second was okay but I can't even remember the third one.

Re: Best Buy / bestbuy.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray

I have the Mummy Trilogy that released about 4 years ago.
Other than the scorpion movie and extras are the movies remastered or offer better audio?

Re: Best Buy / bestbuy.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray

It doesn't offer better audio, it's the same 5.1 DTS-HD tracks. And based on some comments on other forums, it doesn't sound like the picture is all that much improved, although apparently the HDR does help it. Sounds like Universal is going to fuck up UHD releases.

Re: Best Buy / bestbuy.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray

I examined the discs last night and it looks like The Mummy and Scorpion King were just repackaged from an older release. Both have copyright dates of 2008 on them. The artwork on the discs didn't match. The other discs are from 2017.

Still you can't really beat the price and I was upgrading all 4 from DVD.

What's the extra features on this compared to other edition that came out with all the movies? I wish I knew if it was blu-ray or not. Sadly it's somewhere in storage. Kind of tempting for $20 if there's new stuff, especially with the movie cash.

Re: Best Buy / bestbuy.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Best Buy has a cool little trick to save $1 when ordering blu rays online. Add to your cart and select the shipping option. When you go to the next screen, you should see an option to save $1 if you switch to store pick up instead. It looks like it only works on the mobile version, not the desktop or app versions. It also looks like you can use it multiple times. I already used it twice today.

Re: Best Buy / bestbuy.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray

It works on desktop as well, but not always. Some folks aren't getting it to work with mobile either so there is a bit of trial/error to get the extra $1 off.

It seems to work better in Chrome Incognito or a Clean browser (cache/cookie cleared). It appears once of the big things is to make sure to add it shipped and not store pickup before going to the actual checkout screen.

The other thing I seem to get reproducible if you aren't seeing the $1 off Pickup offer at the Shipping/Pickup Checkout screen.
While signed into your account, Return to Cart, Empty everything, sign out of account.
Add Heat, Go to cart and make sure item is being shipped.
Go to checkout, sign into account
Hopefully at the Shipping choice screen there is now an option to change to Pick Up with the $1 off offer.

Re: Best Buy / bestbuy.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray

I don't believe Amazon honors requested price matches. I believe they usually do it on their own and at their own discretion.

Also, for reference:

Spoiler:


Worked for me on my first try on my desktop via Firefox. Didn't work for me on my phone also using Firefox. Since when has Best Buy being doing this? I've been deleting a lot of their emails for awhile now.

Still? They haven't done direct price matches for at least a couple years or more. They stopped even 'show us a better price and we'll think about it" last year, and recently even stopped refunds for recent purchases (within a week or so even if the item is in transport).

It's been at least a year since they stopped refunds for recent purchases. I had one in transport that dropped $10 in price. They flatly refused. After being refused via email I got on chat, the CS spouted the new policy and cut me off while I was typing my argument as to why they should make an exception.

Walmart has a "store pickup credit" on items - right now it's ~4.5%. Mother's Day week it was ~15% for many items.

The problem I have with BB's $1 off offer is little of what they sell online is available here for store pickup. At least with WM you can still get the credit even if the store doesn't stock the item and they'll ship it to the store. BB doesn't offer ship to store for pickup. I just verified this to be sure - I could get the $1 credit for store pickup but the closest store with the item in stock for pickup is ~75 miles away. Yeah... right... There's no way I'm going to do that.

Re: Best Buy / bestbuy.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray

The Walmart thing does work on blu rays as well, just not everything.

Picked up my copy of Heat ($5.99) and King Kong ($6.99) without any issues.

King Kong turned out to be a really good deal. It had two $8 Mummy cash stickers on it. One on the slip and another on the case. Then about 30 mins later I got another redemption code by email. So $7 for a blu ray and $24 in movie tickets. I guess I'm taking the family to see The Mummy when it comes out

The very reason that I stopped buying many blus from Amazon once taxes kicked in for us. I limit my blu ray purchases from Amazon to hard or impossible to find copies at local B&M stores or absolute bargains. I use my 45 day return/price match policy at Best Buy to get the best deals on media. Amazon doesn't seem to care.

I've started doing the same but add Walmart and Target to the mix. They all offer at least 30 days price protection. My CC offers 90 days but it's a hassle to file a claim. And since all 3 PM Amazon I only have to worry about them having it in stock.

I don't know how long they've been doing it but WM now offers pre-order price protection. The last 2 pre-orders I did from them dropped in price before shipping and I didn't have to cancel/reorder or contact CS to get the lower price. It just happened. And since they offer free shipping on almost all media pre-orders with no minimum they now get more of my business.

Re: Best Buy / bestbuy.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Unfortunately in Wa state I get hit with Tax from all the major retailers that have b&m's + Amazon.

While I despise Super D, I do order from DD at times to avoid the 10.5% sales tax. Also order direct from manufacturers, & ebay.

Sales tax keeps going up. 10.5% is ridiculous.

I've paid tax on Amazon for as long as I can remember so apologies if I can't empathize.

Re: Best Buy / bestbuy.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray

So have I (Amazon started in my state!); but with all the no tax options I'm going to use their tax free competitors first unless Amazon is well more than 10% less. It would also be helpful if Amazon would allow their "3rd party sellers" to combine shipping like ebay does.
