Walmart / walmart.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray
 
Thought I would start this as I am sure we are going to use it.

Just thought I'd get this thread started, since I'm sure we'll be using it.

Yes & No... It was a good idea and I know we sure used the Wal-Mart one in the DVD bargains..... and I also thought about doing a Meijer thread, but know those stores are only in certain regions as well have some different names in other areas ....

Now if only Big Lots would start with Blu (other than the recent WB stuff), we could have a Blu-Ray Big Lots thread also... ;)

P.S. I did come 2nd.. lol

Whatever happened to Walmart supposedly expanding their BR section immensely, anyway? They cut it down in my area a week after that article in the NYT, and it's never gotten any larger.

My Wal-Mart also cut their Blu-ray selection way down.

A few months ago they had maybe about eighty-to-one-hundred or so different titles in stock... two panels of their regular DVD section.

They have since cut that down to a single panel, and most of the spaces are empty. They basically have about three $10 BRs (like Robocop) and a handful of new releases. All together, it's about fifteen titles. I expect they're going to stop carrying them altogether before long. Like UMDs.

On the plus side, they finally dropped the price of the Magnavox BR players down to $98.

I agree.. I saw more blu @ Meijer than Wal-Mart...

re: Walmart / walmart.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray
 
Every Wal-mart I've been to in my area has significantly cut down on Blu-ray stock. The new renovations though are cutting down on everything. Yet another reason to avoid that place altogether.

What's the point of this thread? Can't we just wait until there is a deal worthy of posting and then post that. This seems like it should be in store forum right now.

Unless there is some super cool point system for starting threads.

I think the running excuse is they cut down the BD software to make room for more BD Players (which is probably true). They really should stock more of those bargain bin BDs though that appeal to the Wal-Mart masses.

The one I'm at is two sets of shelves about 40+ DVD's each. They throw in a couple new releases each week but not much else.

re: Walmart / walmart.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray
 
In my area, one has two sections (one on either side of the players) and the other only has one section. I'd say the one WM has maybe 40 titles (if that) and the other 15 or so.

Mine got rid of Blus completely. Only have new releases and one or two tiles on an end cap...

re: Walmart / walmart.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray
 
I only see the same $10 Blu-rays that have been around for a while. Even the ones that were $15 like 2-Disc Casino Royale are now back to regular price. Too bad the stores don't mimic the website prices.....

I picked up Evil Dead II and Halloween, I was hoping that they would still have some copies of Chaos but none left to my knowledge

The really interesting thing here: the release date isn't until 10/13, and it's a couple bucks cheaper than the preorder on Amazon, even.

Sounds like Popcorn. I think I'm gonna grab a copy tomorrow morning...

Midnight Movie was pretty good IMO....
One of the better slashers to come out recently....

pridesticks06 09-06-09 10:15 PM

re: Walmart / walmart.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray
 
I don't know what the deal was, but all 3 copies of Chaos at my WM didn't even have the Blu-ray logos on the cases, not to mention the paper-thin eco cases. T3 wasn't $10 (yet) so I just left.

Freddy vs. Jason is indeed $10. I scored the last copy at walmart.

There were a couple T3's at the Columbia, MD Walmart, I picked up one thanks!

I don't think this was mentioned yet: Ninth Gate is also $10

Went to two different WM's today. Found one copy of FvJ. I saw tags for T3 but none were to be found.

Same situation at my Wal-Mart. They have had shelf tags for Halloween, T3, and ED2 for the past couple of weeks, but no Blu-rays.

I've also noticed that they have a space for Dollhouse (DVD) since it was released, but I've never actually seen a copy of it in stock.

Rammsteinfan 09-09-09 09:51 AM

re: Walmart / walmart.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray
 
Only one copy of FvJ at my walmart this morning at 6. Picked it up and checked it out. Pretty good video and sounds quality imo. Definitely worth upgrading for $10.

Drav3n 09-09-09 06:10 PM

re: Walmart / walmart.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray
 
picked FvJ. i was surprised that my walmart had alot of copies. still havent watched it yet. was hoping to read a review or be able to do a rental on it before i open it haha

I stopped by two WMs on the way home from work. They didn't get FvJ. :(

Mine had Freddy Vs. Jason but I had no interest in it. I wanted Big Trouble in Little China... no luck.

Moopher 09-09-09 10:58 PM

re: Walmart / walmart.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray
 
Damn, I wish mine had either FvJ or BTiLC

re: Walmart / walmart.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray
 
Picked up Midnight Movie and Halloween. Unfortunately, they didn't have FvJ.

I picked up Freddy vs Jason and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003). I just cancelled my Amazon order cause it still hadn't shipped.
