I have a rebate coming from FYE

3 weeks ago I picked up a $65 srp Thundercats DVD box set brand new for ONLY $16 AND they had the nerve to tell me I get a $7 rebate to boot! Cha-Ching......

I was pleased to get an email confirming they processed it, that was nice as well.

There is/was a section of box sets with rebates towards the front of most stores here in AZ.

Re: TWEC (FYE, Suncoast) In-Store Backstage Pass Coupons Thread

Btw, I get the FYE online emails but still NO Backstage Pass emails....grumble grumble. Thanks again to WTK, these coupons help pay off the $25 yearly fee very quickly.

Re: TWEC (FYE, Suncoast) In-Store Backstage Pass Coupons Thread

Just got an e-mail for a $5 off coupon code on any size order for the first 500 to redeem it-


5FREEOCT

The usual exclusions apply-no pre-orders, no video games.


EDIT: I should have mentioned that this is an online coupon. Even though this is an in-store thread, I thought that I would post it here rather than starting a new thread.

Thanks, man. I was wanting to order the new Miranda Lambert CD from them to get the autographed booklet, and this coupon made it cheaper than at Best Buy, even after shipping (and my lack of Backstage Pass discount since my account expired recently, and I haven't renewed yet).

Re: TWEC (FYE, Suncoast) In-Store Backstage Pass Coupons Thread

how does that twitter thing work exactly? do you just mention the code to the cashier at checkout as a "virtual coupon"? and are there many reports on being denied?

You should have tried it anyway. A couple of years ago, I let my BSP expire. However, it still took 10% off online for over 6 months after it had expired.

I did try it, but it didn't work. I entered in my Backstage Pass number at checkout like it said, but no 10% discount appeared. I'm gonna renew it when I go back to FYE later this month to pick up the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Steelbook I have reserved. I just don't feel like driving out of my way to the only FYE in my area until then as it's a decent drive to get there. I really appreciate you guys posting the coupons though as I never get any e-mailed to me even after they put my e-mail address into the computer when I was in the store a few months back.

I have not tried it myself. You're supposed to bring to the cashier and they just have to input the coupon code. Your experience may vary as I have heard some people have been denied.

Still here, just don't post nearly as much these days. I rarely buy movies these days, since leaving the company I'm just playing catch-up on all the ones I own already! Glad to see that fye is still occassionally worth shopping at, I'm still close to some of the employees and know that business is the suck.

I was able to use the twitter 20% off coupon yesterday. I told the cashier the code and they then spent 10 minutes on a computer looking for confirmation that the code was legit.

Did you make sure that the Blu-ray was used? That code only works on used items.

By the way, WTK. Great idea keeping the most current coupons in the top post. Came in this morning to print the 40% used one beginning today and it was easy to find.

It's not supposed to work on used BDs. It's only on used CDs and DVDs.

If I'm understanding correctly, the 40% was only given on one item? You know, it was my assumption this was correct. Just now, however, I notice the fine print instructs the cashier to scan item(s) and seems to imply it would work on multiple items just one coupon per transaction. I've only bought one item at a time with the coupon, though I have returned back to the store with another copy of the coupon and used it again.



On an semi-related note, I used the 40% off coupon code. Upon entering my local FYE, I was told that all used horror dvds were 25% off. Much to my surprise, the discounts stacked. Along with my BP discount, I picked up a $10.99 used DVD for $4.xx.

Yes, the coupon says "scan item(s)". So I assume more than 1 item should have been scaned. I saw this when I got home from FYE. So this must be a misprint??

And yes all used horror dvds are 25% off. :-)

The deal with the FYE Bonus Bucks

I confirmed in Arizona you can get $5 or $10 in FYE bonus bucks by purchasing FYE gift cards by October 31st.

You get $5 with a $30+ gift card purchase or $10 with a $50+ gift card purchase.

The catch with the bonus bucks is they are good only during certain dates (not sure when but likely after November 1st).

I've been using the $3 coupons frequently adding MORE UFC dvds for $1.50 & some kid's dvds + a rare Dennis Miller standup for ONLY 59 cents each!

I love it!

Noah

P.S. I STILL am not getting any Backstage coupons via email so I'll hound them yet again.

I normally only buy 1 item with these BUT one time I had my 40% off Blu-Ray and picked up a clearance sale GBA game on impulse since it was the only copy and I never saw it before (Wade Hixton's Counter Punch - GREAT game btw) and it ALSO received a 40% off discount!

I didn't notice until I left since the game was only $4-5 and the discount didn't add up to much but the game ended up costing me under $3 for a new, sealed GBA game which I really enjoy.

Yet another blessing.

The great thing about used Blu-Rays

Almost all of the used Blu-Rays I've been getting have few if any scratches/prints with most looking brand new.

I think there are 3 reasons for this.

1. The technology is so new most of these only have 1 owner.

2. A lot of these were probably stolen (hopefully from Wal Mart)

3. The economy probably forced the owners to resell them (or steal them).

With used DVD purchases I'm always a little nervous about what the condition of the disc will be in but not with the Blu-Rays.
