40% off used Blu @ gohastings.com

http://www.gohastings.com/browse/MOV...Name/MOVIE.uts

sale runs Friday and Saturday. Stacks with the current $5 off $25 automatic discount which helps defray some of the shitty shipping charges.

Shipping is $3 for the first movie, $1 for each additional. Sale is also in-store, wherever they are.

How's their quality usually? Do you get the regular covers/inserts?

Re: 40% off used Blu @ gohastings.com

What's the difference between used and previously viewed?

Re: 40% off used Blu @ gohastings.com

This sale is unbelievable!

I have placed 12 orders of around $25 each so far. (In order to maximize the $5 of $25).

Some info: Previously viewed are rentals. Used are items sold to them by customers. Go for the Used, not previously viewed.

I have ordered around 40 Blu-rays in the past from them, and I have only gotten one bad one. Almost all were in beautiful condition, with a couple still sealed.

Some of the titles I picked up, almost all under $10 (Kiss of the Spider Woman was the only one over $10 at $13). The $5 off $25 pretty much made it free shipping:

Inglourios Basterds
Sin City
Fight Club
Adventures of Baron Munchausen
Wolf
Bird With the Crystal Plumage
Orphan
Grace
Cujo
Taken
Snatch
Lock, Stock & 2 Smoking Barrels
Adventureland
Resident Evil
Synecdoche, New York
Bruno
Vanishing Point
Diary of Anne Frank
Sixth Sense
Black Christmas (original)
Natural Born Killers (uncut)
Few Good Men
Apocalypto
Kiss of the Spider Woman
Labyrinth
Serenity
Quantum of Solace
Forgetting Sarah marshall
Paprika
Mission Impossible

Re: 40% off used Blu @ gohastings.com

Man, the site is SLOOOOOW. I was scanning the pages and noting which titles I wanted were still in stock. Saw that Forrest Gump and Natural Born Killers were. But when I went back to put them in my cart they were showing as "Out of Stock."

But I still managed to get Coraline, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and Forgetting Sarah Marshall for $27.58 total.

Re: 40% off used Blu @ gohastings.com

Their site must be getting hammered right now. It's moving like mud. I had a big order ready to place and it's taking 2-3 minutes to load each screen of the checkout process. On top of that, I've had 3 times now where I was on the last step of checking out and one of the movies in my cart sold out while it was loading, so it gave me an error message and kicked me back to the cart. Great sale, but it's too bad their site can't handle it.

Website is dog slow and I'm on a T1 connection.

I get system error if I search for any movies. The only thing I can do is buy stuff already on my wish list. Looks like everything is gonna be OOS within hours.

Re: 40% off used Blu @ gohastings.com

Yeah, the site is fried right now. Way too many people probably jumping on. It says they're doing maintenance. Oh well! Hope it comes back up soon.

Re: 40% off used Blu @ gohastings.com

And I thought I was getting good deals at Target with PM'ing and the $5 coupon. Good thing I haven't opened T4 and Basterds. As soon as I get them from Hastings I will return to Target.

Re: 40% off used Blu @ gohastings.com

It's funny, I woke up an hour early this morning for some reason (5am instead of 6am), and decided to check out their site not realizing they had this sale going. I was lucky as I managed to put in 12 orders without a problem....although I did end up late for work

I would still like to get a few more orders in...but I am worried that once the site is back up, they will take away the $5 off $25....I hope not.

Re: 40% off used Blu @ gohastings.com

Is the $5 off $25 reusable, or did you have to create more than one account? It says one per account on the e-mail I received.

NVM - it IS reusable.

Everything on my wish list is OOS and I still can't add any new movies. Oh well, next time I'll have my wish list loaded and ready.

Re: 40% off used Blu @ gohastings.com

Is the consensus that Used or Previously Viewed are better quality?

go with used. The PV are rentals, although I have gotten a couple of ex-rentals as used. Probably due to someone buying it as an ex-rental and then trading it in and Hastings marking it as used.
