Thanks for the heads up!

Might have to check my local BBV. Last time I was there they had PVD Blu-Ray's but no deals like this.

Been wanting to get Nick & Norah for cheap somewhere.

I saw some used blu-rays for sale also, but they were in the blockbuster rental cases, not the standard blu cases.

That's a major dealbreaker for me.

Yep, main reason why I don't pick up anything used there....it is a shame too, since the BD are rented less and have the scratch resistant coating, I actually might be willing to buy a couple used if they only had their original cases....I know you can buy empty Blu cases online, but then you're just adding to the cost and lowering the deal you get from buying used....

Re: blue rays 2 for 25 PV blockbuster

Rather than starting another thread, I'll just add that they are also doing a 2 for $10 deal on prev-viewed sd $9.99 and under. It's basically the same as the 4 for $20 deal, but now you can get in on it if you had a hard time finding 4 movies you wanted (I know I'm in that camp).

I picked up:
Mother of Tears
Tropic Thunder (just went to 9.99...it's disc 1 of the 2-disc set. So it's the longer unrated version and has 2 commentary tracks)

They do sell them in the rental cases (since that’s what they’re shipped in) but the insert is the original that comes from the regular case. I bought a bunch of the Hancock Blu Ray cases from Best Buy for a penny, so that’s what I have been using to switch them out.

And I also stopped by BB during lunch and they were not having the sale either.

Have you never been in BBV, this is how they always sell all the previously
viewed movie product.

they don't get the rental blu's in regular blu cases so they can't sell
them in regular blu cases.

I think it was the preview disc that was given out free w/the purchase of another blu-ray. But if you took the preview disc to the register and rang it up it sold for .01 by itself.

This was the first time I'd seen them sell Blu-ray, so I thought it was worth mentioning.

Re: blue rays 2 for 25 PV blockbuster

I went to the Blockbuster on Kapiolani Boulevard and on Piikoi Street -- BOTH had the sale on. Kapiolani started the sale last week and the cashier said as far as he knows, it continues until the BDs are gone. (I presume he means the excess which they've pulled.)

*edit*
Went to 4 branches now and found the following titles 2 for $25:

Chronicles of Narnia Prince Caspian
Pride and Glory
Get Smart
Transsiberian
My Best Friend's Girl
Zack and Miri Make a Porno
Swing Vote
Hancock
Space Buddies
Wanted
Nim's Island
The Express
Quarantine
Re-Cycle
Soul Men
Burn After Reading
Made of Honor
Pirates II Stagnetti's Revenge
Wall-E
Broken Trail
Righteous Kill
The Happening
Deception
Donnie Darko
Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Traitor
RocknRolla
Journey to the Center of the Earth
Rumor has it
Alvin and the Chipmunks
Eagle Eye
Starship Troopers 3: Marauder
Becoming Jane
Lakeview Terrace
Battle in Seattle
Hellboy II
Pineapple Express
Kung Fu Panda
Sleepwalking
Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Run Fatboy Run
Doubt
The Dark Knight
The Incredible Hulk (in green case, no slipcover)
Sukiyaki Western Django
Zombie Strippers
Stuck
The Fall
Marley & Me
The House Bunny
Doom
Ghost Town
Futurama Bender's Game
Ronin
Stranger Than Fiction
Enchanted
Iron Man
Tropic Thunder
Drillbit Taylor
Role Models
Game Plan
Saawariya
Little Miss Sunshine
Twilight
Redbelt
Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
Death Race

And more I can't remember. All came in Blu-Ray cases with cover art. As is the custom at the local Blockbusters, however, they put a little label on the bottom of the clear plastic front cover and/or bottom of jacket cover. The label is about 1/2" x 2-1/2" and has the title, barcode, etc. The one on the clear plastic usually comes off easily; not so much the one on the jacket.

Last time I had looked, most BDs were preview-priced at $16.99. Now the regular price seems to be $14.99, and currently the sale price.

They were also selling some of the 2-pack titles (new) for $16.99, like Sweeney Todd/Sleepy Hollow, Mission Impossible I and II.

Re: blue rays 2 for 25 PV blockbuster

Thanks for posting your findings rkndkn

I'd be happy if I can find Zack & Miri, Vicky Christina Barcelona and maybe Nick & Norah.

Love that Digital Playground still continues to make R-Rated versions of the "Pirates" films

Re: blue rays 2 for 25 PV blockbuster

I bought some 2 disc BD cases recently and will use some of them for this sale. My local one had several titles I want and has the cover art so once I replace the case I will be all set. No sale yet here in San Antonio.

Higgs1 at highdefdigest forum got Hellboy 2, Wall E, Saw V, & Pineapple Express for $9.99 each at his Blockbuster in Boston, MA. (Original BD cases with art, no DC.)

Wow, even better!
