Re: Costco discounts and deals on Blu-ray

No movies at our Costco now, either. It's just bizarre. Where else do I buy 900 pounds of baby back ribs for the same price as Citizen Kane?

Re: Costco discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Costco hadn't really been competitive on media pricing in a long, long time. The writing has been on the wall for a couple of years they were getting out of the category.

Ditto with our Costco and I think Sam's is closer to doing the same (if they haven't already).

Movies on disc is fast becoming a dying breed. Streaming is becoming the new norm.

Sam's here dropped all media and video games over a year ago. They'll put out a couple of free standing displays at certain times of the year with seasonal titles at not-so-good prices and that's it.

Re: Costco discounts and deals on Blu-ray

I think within 2 years physical media will only be available at used stores & on the net; other than maybe the top 20. What still stuns me is that a low bit rate 720 video stream looks much better than a higher bit rate dvd. Lossy files for audio suck big time; but for engineering reasons over my head that is not the case for video. And on a nationwide basis, Brick & Mortar is pretty much down to Best Buy & Target (both said to be discontinuing cd's); Barnes & Noble & Walmart.

Re: Costco discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Yeah I saw the same. I was hoping that there would be copies of Thor too, as the other major Disney release, but no dice there,

Re: Costco discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Yeah just the Coco display when I was there last weekend, only the BD pack too. I might have bit on the 4K as an impulse buy if they'd had it. I'm still waiting on my $24.99 backorder from Amazon.

This was the first time at this location that I didn't see at least a few BDs and DVDs over by the (now) 3 tables full of books!

Re: Costco discounts and deals on Blu-ray

My local store had both Coco and Lady and the Tramp in a cardboard display. This was before the Thor release day so I don't know if they added that or not. But I suspect they did. I figured they would still bring in these family movie new releases since that has always been their core BD/DVD focus.

Re: Costco discounts and deals on Blu-ray

Costco just seems to sell Disney discs. So there was a Star Wars - Last Jedi, a Marvel - Black Panther for about $23, and a bunch of 2nd tier Disney for $8.99

Same at my local store this past weekend. A couple weekends ago they had all the previous Marvel Universe movies instead of that animated movie selection. Not terrible prices for those that don't already have them.

Re: Costco discounts and deals on Blu-ray

A friend put me on her Costco card months ago. I've been their 2 or 3 times since than; I purchased a total of 2 food items.

Sadly I missed a $5 each clearance sale on all sweaters by 1 week.

I was thinking about buying a phone there, but my carrier warned me that Costco's phone center tends to scam people (& the carrier's rep was not suggesting I buy directly from them; in fact he recommended Best Buy!). I ended up buy a used LG V20 in mint condition at less than 1/3 of retail & so far am living happily ever after.
