These things drive me crazy.

The only one I'd really want to get is the X-Men trilogy, though I would consider getting the Hannibal set.

Nothing else really impresses me, though.

Re: Best Buy Boxsets $39.99/Buy 3 get $50 GC

Same here. If I could find 3 BR 3-packs (9 movies) I wanted for $70, that would be nice, but it never works out. The only 3 pack I want is the last James Bond set. All the others I either don't want or already have at least 1 title. Too bad they never let you "buy any 9 of the following set of movies for $120 and receive a $50 gift card". If I could mix and match BRs, then maybe, but I've always wondered what marketing genius decides what titles get paired together. I can't remember the last time I bought a 2 or 3 pack of anything precisely because there's always at least 1 movie I don't want in every pack.

Re: Best Buy Boxsets $39.99/Buy 3 get $50 GC

2 weeks ago when this sale started I bought the following:



X-Men Trilogy = 26.50
Fox Searchlight set 1 = 26.50
Fox Searchlight set 2 = 26.50
James Bond 1 = 26.50
James Bond 2 = 26.50
James Bond 3= 26.50
John Adams = $25
Wolverine =$11
NCIS Season 1 (DVD) = $16
NCIS season 2 (DVD)= $16

Not bad for $227

20 Blu-Ray discs and 2 DVD Sets for an average price of $10.25 each, Not bad considering there are 2 DVD TV sets and 1 Blu-ray set (John Adams).

I never thought of the sale as that good of deal. Mostly because it's a $50 Gift Card that's given after.

If it was $50 off if I bought 3 Box Sets, then I could actually say it was 9 films for $70. Since the $50 is given afterward, I'm still paying $120+ for the 3 Box Sets (of possibly some films I don't want) and using the $50 towards something outside the purchase.

Re: Best Buy Boxsets $39.99/Buy 3 get $50 GC

I think I understand latenightcreepa's deal. The X-Men Trilogy set discounted by the $10 off coupon didn't count toward the gift card, but the 3 $39.99 sets (discounted by the RZ coupon) did count for the $50 off gift card. It took me a while to figure that out.

I was in BBY recently trying to use the $20 gift card coupon for 2 games over $39.99 and found that even though the games were over $39.99 after a pricematch, they still said I couldn't use the coupon which didn't say "markdowns taken from regular prices". I also had another set of 10% off coupons when I was there and threw them away unused because everything I bought was on clearance or marked down from "regular prices". Basically, I consider BBY's 10% off coupons about as useful for me as a "10% off all items over $1" coupon from the 99 Cent Only Store would be.

I agree but for me it worked it very good.

I bought 3 sets got the gift card, bought three more sets using the first gift card and recieved a second gift card which I then used to purchase 2 seasons of NCIS on sale for $15 each, Wolverine on Blu for $10 and John Adams Blu-ray for $22. For a grand total of 227.

I picked up the family 3-pack (Ice Age 1 & 2, plus Alvin & Chipmunks), Jockl 3-pack (Hoosiers, Dodgeball, Rocky) and Marvel 3-pack (Fantastic four 1 & 2 and Daredevil). Price matched the FRYs ad at Best Buy for 23.99 each plus a $50 gift card back. Not bad for $71.97 - $50 gift card. $2.44 each.

Went back later and picked up Funny Guy Collection (Napoleon Dynamite / Office Space / Young Frankenstein), Chickflick 3-Pack (Devil Wears Prada / Juno / 27 Dresses), and Action Hero Collection (Day After Tomorrow / i Robot / Terminator).

$43.94 for 18 Blu Ray's. Can't complain abou that!

Picked up X-men Trilogy Blu Ray, Hannibal Lecter Anthology Blu Ray, and Alien Predator Total Destruction DVD set with $50 gift card for $103 after a $10 coupon for each Blu Ray and a $5 coupon for the DVD set. Not too bad, I think.
