Best price for Paranormal Activity?

Is $25 at Best Buy really the best price? I have it preordered at Amazon for $27, but this is from back when it first went up for presale (kinda hoping it would go down before street).

I wish this came out a month ago during all of the black friday hype.

Re: Best price for Paranormal Activity?

im not surprised to see it being priced so high. The movie had blown up so big they figure the supporters of this movie will pay for it at that price. Ill wait till i can get this movie for $15 or under.

Not paying that insane price either for such a slim BD (1 Minute extra and a Digital Copy?).

I canceled my Amazon pre-order today. I thought it would drop like all the other recent releases. $27 is crazy.

Why don't you just wait for the release week? Chances are it will be 20bucks on ad somewhere. Maybe cheaper.

For that little amount of extras on the BR I'll wait for it to either go lower or like others said, a probable double dip.

Cause we already have the ads for it's release week and it's not. Unless it's some secret-sale price.

Re: Best price for Paranormal Activity?

Seems like the best route is to just wait it out...no way I'm spending that much on this. I think if you give it like 2 months it'll be down to $17.

But will the special end credits be on all editions? I'd hate to buy the blu-ray only to find the credits are only on the DVD and vice a versa. I'm assuming it's on all of them but I'm waiting until I see it confirmed.

i work at a blockbuster and we had to prep the pre releases of paranormal activity early because it was pushed up to monday.usually when that happens,its everywhere.or some other chain store has broken street date,forcing it to come out early everywhere.but i do know for sure the rental and retail versions will be at blockbuster monday morning.the last time this happened was for eagle eye last year.it came out the friday before its tuesday release because of broken street dates.im pretty sure target and walmart will put it out.

BB usually breaks early if other stores in their region do. We did it many times when I worked for BB and Hollywood Video is a local competitor broke date. Still, 1 day early is nothing. It should have been a Saturday release.

Thanks for the heads up.

There is a local Blockbuster about 10 minutes from my place, I might stop by.

Re: Best price for Paranormal Activity?

BB did have it out and I picked it up. Target also had it but the register stopped me from buying it because its marked 12/29 i n their system and the manager wont override it. It was $24.99 but i had a gift card so i just got it anyways since i dont plan on much in the next month.
