Best Buy 3-Day Sale 12/17-12/19 Select BDs $16.99

I saw a sales flyer in today's newspaper for a 3-day sale:

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
The Proposal
Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure
Monsters and Aliens
Terminator Salvation
Four Christmases
My Sister's Keeper
Underworld
X Men Origins Wolverine
Snatch
Bruno
Land of the Lost

You can pick the ad from your local BB and PM at Target and get $5 off the above prices.

Neither does Best Buy (unless you get a manager willing to do so YMMV).

I had previously bought Terminator Salvation at Target for $14.99 with coupon. Looks like I'll be heading back to grab it for $11.99. Thanks for the heads-up, y.

You go to Target with the Best Buy ad and price match the items. Wait until they process the price match and when they ask for the payment, hand over the Target $5 store coupons.

Is it worth going back to Target for $3?

Since I'm already going there to price match this BB ad and get The Proposal, then yes, it will also be worth it for me to repurchase Terminator Salvation and then return it on my original $15 receipt....

Someone has to decide for you if $3 is worth it to you?

Anyone who does pricematching is usually someone that is beyond cheap...in a whole other stratosphere. A lot of you really push the envelope with this one. I am all about getting bargains but pricematching seems dishonest, even though many companies follow this policy.

How is pricematching dishonest? We are just following the company policy. Next thing you know, someone here may say buying at an advertised sale price is dishonest because you are not paying a full retail price.

Perhaps you may not have realized this is the Blu-Ray Bargains forum.

Wait, Target pricematches now? I remember the past 6 years or so they refused to do it. Was this a nation wide policy change or just YMMV?

Hilarious! I have read several times in these forums where folks will waste $10 in gas driving 15 miles to some store just to save 2 bucks on a blu-ray. I think it's the thrill of the discount chase for some people...

You're in a bargains forum so this is what you should expect.

That's why I don't use coupons either - I feel dirty. Anyone who cut's out coupons and uses them is a not just cheap, but bordering on criminal. And those people who line up at 5am for Black Friday deals? Put them in prison!!!

It's a bit of a hassle, and I mostly don't do it because I'd rather use my time elsewhere (which is also one reason I mostly buy on the internet), but how is it dishonest?

Re: Best Buy 3-Day Sale 12/17-12/19 Select BDs $16.99

Well I got a Disney coupon for $10 off of Tinkerbell so if I use that + the $5 Target coupon would put my total at $1.99 plus tax. I already own 1, but for that price it is a NO BRAINER....................ALTHOUGH

I guess I should be LOCKED UP since I am stealing $15 from Target.
