Not sure if this has been posted but just picked up HellBoy II blu-ray disc from Blockbuster for 14.99. Was on sale for 17.99 - 3.00 man. coupon. So if this has already been posted please forgive me.

They aren't supposed to use it unless the customer actually has the official manufacture's coupon in hand.

Just go to your local Blockbuster and it should be marked 17.99 BD copy. Then ask the clerk about the 3.00 manufacturers rebate. She pulled out some papers and went through and scanned it for me. Total: 14.99 + tax

Hmm, may have to try this. I almost jumped on it for $22 at Target this week.

I bought it a couple days ago and asked about the coupon. They had no idea what I was talking about. So I paid the $17.99.

It appears to be a barcode in their holiday promotional kit that they can scan. More info about it here:

I had to mention it to the cashier. At first she looked at me odd, called a manager and he found it for her.

It worked for me just now. At first I thought I was going to have a hard time (guy behind the counter looked more like a butcher or biker than a BB manager). He had no idea what I was talking about at first, but had no problem locating and scanning it once I described it. I saw that the rebate is good until 1/31/09, but the sale price is only till 1/5/09.

Thanks OP!

Someone should maybe add "Blu-ray" to the thread title though. I almost passed on this thread because of that.

You'd probably be lucky enough just getting someone to PM it.

I got mine for $15 from a Columbia House B1G1 a few weeks ago. For anyone that missed out on that though I would jump on it at this price. It is an awesome movie and it seems like one of the best titles to get for both PQ/AQ.

Thanks OP and everyone with tips.

Cashier didn't know about it but the manager knew right away and took the extra $3 off.

Now if I just had a player...-confused-holding out for a deal on the BD-35

I'm glad I jumped on that Sony on Black Friday when I did. Its been back up at $299 ever since (for the most part).

I got mine for $14.99 after the $3.00 coupon. I told them there is a coupon code that they have in a sheet of barcodes that they can scan to get the discount. They didn't know what I am talking about and they didn't have that barcode sheet that I mentioned either. Then I told them that there is a Holiday promotional kit that has that $3.00 coupon. They had no idea what I am talking about. The lady who works that was kind enough to call another BB and was able to get the code from them. She manually input the code and I got $3.00 off. It is up to the person if he/she willing to spend time to locate the coupon for you. I think you get better luck when the store is not busy.

PS: The lady from BB asked me if the coupon code is for all Blu-ray movies or for Hellboy II only. I don't know. If someone knows, please tell us.

Its a special one for Hellboy II only. I saw the actual sheet.

I settled for $17.99... they had no idea what coupon I was talking about. Then the lady said, well, this is only $17.99, so its cheap enough.

Thanks.

I agree great machine. I love it. Picked mine up back in Oct. for 190 shipped from macmall. Hate I got it now - lol. Spending to much money on BD's.

I did get mine for $17.99, but I'm going back to speak to the manager for the $3 coupon or promotional kit. I know the guy, but he wasn't there the night I got it. Every little bit counts.

I had the hardest time getting the moron Blockbuster woman to open the seasonal promotional coupon list (a white, photocopied, multiple page thing). Then, as she looked at every page, she kept telling me that the coupon didn't exist. When she finally found it, she went "ha-rummphhh" very loudly which was her way of apologizing or something.

Thanks, OP, for posting this. Blockbuster bargains are few and far between. I ended up paying a scrap more than I would have at Columbia House, but it helped me whittle my store credit closer to $0.

I started with about $800 back a few years ago when they were offering $8 a used DVD as long as it showed up in their system. I got rid of a lot of crap that week.

I settled for $17.99, which is fine with me. I rented the DVD via RedBox the other day and enjoyed it enough to run out and get this.
