The catch with the bonus bucks is they are good only during certain dates (not sure when but likely after November 1st)...
valid from 11/02/09 - 11/26/09 only. perfect for the gi joe steelbook methinks

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.

Reason #4. The FYE cashiers are supposed to inspect them for scratches before they accept them as a trade-in. Also, FYE guarantees their used products. If they are unplayable, they'll take them back.

Reason #5... Blu-Ray's have a protective layer that is resistant to scratching... (not an original criteria, but implemented after some issues and then marketed as a feature).. so basically every used Blu Disc I have gotten from them is perfect.. the case, etc.. not always...

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

I better check with the store I renewed my membership with and do alot of business. I never get any kind of e-mails from them. I've even ordered from the website (which I'll never do again) but again, never any coupons.

BTW, did the website stop with the rebates???

WTK,

Please post some soon.

I'm going to email customer service again today and complain that I NEVER get any backstage pass emails.

trust in wtk! he always updates the first post of this thread with current coupons. available now is the 25% off the regular price of any new dvd. not jawdropping, but still very good potential if used properly

and imho, very smart on taking advantage of the bonus bucks.

i dont believe the rebates stopped, in-store or online, but it at least seems like twec has slowed down on them a bit. for example, the transformers steelbook had a measely $3 mir

I'm going to try using the 40% off coupon today BUT this is strange.....

if you look at the coupon there's no % symbol, it just says 40off any used (item).

I hope the cashier doesn't get confused or think it's fake.

^ That is a little strange. I wouldn't have noticed it if you hadn't pointed it out. If the fine print didn't say enter % discount, you could almost push for a $40 discount.

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

This may be a long shot on whether it helps anyone, but the FYE in Danville, KY is closing. The sale began yesterday with 10% off of games, 20% off of CDs/DVDs. I visit this store on occasion and I'm usually one of only 2-3 people in the store at most. Yesterday, there were 15-20 steady customers in the store. Funny thing is the prices aren't necessarily better at this point, as all sales prices/deals have been removed (B1G1s, etc). The good news is that the backstage discount still works and I was able to use the $3 coupon to pick up 4 used titles for less than 10 bucks. Don't know if the next coupon will work (25% off regular price) since everything is on sale, but I may give it a try later.

Sadly the FYE in tacoma Wa is doing the same & the prices are the same as you mention, which makes over half of the store stock higher priced then it was before the sale!

I was told they'll allow the card in addition to up to 30% off, but not at higher discounts. My card needs to be renewed so I'm considering grabbing some box sets when they hit 30% off if they'll give me 30 + 20 for the card renewal.

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

i hear ya, but methinks fye doesnt get much love in these forums. imho, fye can be a great resource but only to some people. i think most consumers dislike mail-in-rebates, used dvds, browsing stores for hours, etcetera.

My "FYE" (aka Sam Goody) is closing down and has going out of business signs, in Dallas at Town East mall. Just an FYI.
