GoHastings.com 30% off Used Blu-Ray Fri/Sat only

Although the prices currently dont reflect that at all even if you click on the link for qualifying titles, and I dont see any code to enter. Maybe by morning the prices will be fixed.

Well the prices on my wish list have not changed from yesterday. If these are the discounted prices then this means yesterday's deal which was 10% was even better than the 30% off now.

What a dick move from Hastings. Pretend like it is a big sale when there is no savings. Asshole company.

Someone at Blu-ray.com called Hastings, informing them that the 30% off wasn't showing up. It was an oversight by Hastings and now it is showing. I just bought five $35-$40 list price titles including three brand new releases for $65.18 shipped. Not stunning but pretty good.

Same prices I saw this morning. Is $12.50 a good price for Taken used?

What is the difference between Used and Previously Viewed?

bsmith,

Taken is $8.81 with the discount. You have to put it in your cart to see the discounted price. (That's before shipping and tax, if your state gets taxed.)

And "used" is supposed to be trade-ins from customers, whereas "previously viewed" were former rentals. However, on rare occasions, I have had "used" ones come with the Hastings sticker around the center of the disc indicating it was a rental. A couple of times, the center sticker was obviously peeled off.

I hate the way these sales never include TV shows or sets even though they advertise a format wide sale........

What type of condition are these used and previously viewed disks usually in? I don't care about the shape of the cases so much but would like to know if they typically come with some scratches.

They are usually in mint condition. Often, I even get the original slipcover like the shiny one that comes with The Mummy.

The prices are really good now! Unfortunately, almost everything on my wish list is out of stock now. Better jump on this fast, folks.

Re: GoHastings.com 30% off Used Blu-Ray Fri/Sat only

I've ordered about 10 used blu-rays from GoHastings over the past couple of months, and they have all arrived mint, like new (cases, disks, inserts--everything). The previously viewed are apparently a bit more hit and miss, as they are rentals, thus people take worse care of them.

Wish I knew about the price dropping in the cart earlier. I skipped a few of my wishlist titles this morning at their usual prices, and now some are out of stock.

Thanks, that's good to know.

I just made my first order with them. Six BRs for just under $9 a piece after shipping and w/no tax.

- Taken
- Wrestler
- Express
- Indiana Jones, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull
- Mummy, Tomb of the Dragon Emperor
- Mummy

The only one I've ever seen before is the original Mummy.

Usually are in very good condition - about 10% of the time you will get one really beat up and/or not the edition you bought (missing digital copy, 2-disc version instead of 3-disc), but overall worth the risk if you can get a decent deal. Just watch out for shipping charges. This deal isn't particularly great this time.

There were quite a few up in the $19 range and some typically available for around $10 New going for more Used. I only selected ones that I was most interested in and that were at least 50% off current sale's pricing from other places.

House Of Wax costs 1056 dollars used. Unforgiven and a couple others cost 669 dollars used. What the hell? This isn't a discount, it's a major markup!

Well I was just able to place an order of 20 titles for a little under $205 shipped (and shipping costs were $21.99!) That sounds pretty good to me... hopefully they'll all be in good condition.

Oh, and for first time buyers -- be prepared to get each item individually in a bubble envelope, even if they come from the same place!

13 movies for $105 shipped = $8 each

including Smart People, Repo!, Ghost Town, RocknRolla, Burn After Reading, Indy 4, and others. I really shouldn't have, but c'mon - when most are showing as $6.xx in your cart, it's hard to say no.

Good deal. But yeah, a couple I really wanted were out of stock.
