FYI, it's not actually buy 2 get 1 free, it's buy 2 get 1 for $1. I know it's not a big difference, but it's still a dollar

Is this for new or used movies?

How much is shipping and is there tax?

Do the used blu's come in regular blu cases?

Thanks!

* $2.28 flat fee per movie.

* Yep, there is tax.

* As for case...usually. Sometimes digital copy discs are missing or the code for them is.

USED = usually trade-ins
Previously Viewed = usually rentals.

Here is a link for what I assume qualifies for the sell. The discount is not active yet though.

Does the discount always seem to disappear in your confirmation email?

I placed one order the discount disappeared at the final confirmation. Needless to say it will be the last of this sale. Already emailed their CS. Sadly, wont hear for days though. Thankfully, I have proof via photos on my iphone.

Re: GoHastings.com Buy 2 get 1 free-Includes Blu Ray!

Was spoiled by the Hollywoodvideo sale, with the terrible pricing on shipping it kind of ruins it for me with this deal. Still contemplating though for example the following 3 but it would cost still about $7.25 a piece due to the shipping.

Hellboy
X-Men 3
Dogma

The discount showed up on email confirmation.

Got:

Public Enemies
Hangover
District 9

Total was around $33. This could've been cheaper if the shipping rate didn't change but $11 per Blu Ray isn't too bad.

I had a vague memory of this happening before and it being ok, but alas based on the order above mine maybe not. I will email cs and call them in the morning, just to be sure.

Definitely stopped me from placing order 2.

Should of seen my mine. Not only did the discount disappear but the USED price on one item some how was changed to the Listed Price even though on the order it clearly states used. I reloaded the same 3 items into the cart and the discount does shows on the site and in my cart....lol.

Basically, they got me for 65 right now on a order that is supposed to be 47.30

No problems for me so far. 8 orders, 24 blus, $235 shipped. Hopefully they all will be available to ship. I was going to do a few more orders but I'm unable to check out any more.

At less than $10 each I'm pretty happy, it includes some titles I've been waiting for, Ponyo (missed the coupon deal), Towering Inferno and Inglorious Bastards.

Re: GoHastings.com Buy 2 get 1 free-Includes Blu Ray!

I placed four orders for this sale and feel pretty happy about it...with this sale, bbv previously viewed price drops, hollywoodvideo.com sale, and the local hollywood video going out of business this has been my most productive blu-ray shopping season ever...now to find some time to watch them all...

Thanks to big jim for the heads up on the tv sets...i had been using price search low to high, so it would have taken me quite a while to figure that one out...i was able to get the office, true blood, and sin city (which I can never find discounted)

They've raised the prices on a lot of stuff in my wish list since last weekend. Guess I'm going to sit this one out.

Yeah, I hate to threadcrap, but shipping kills the deal these days. I had my wish list all ready to go, too.

Re: GoHastings.com Buy 2 get 1 free-Includes Blu Ray!

Definitely not as good a deal as their previous sales, but I still picked up Bruno, Snow White, Saw VI, 9, Halo Legends and It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia Xmas. Came to around $65 for all of them. With I could've gotten The Informant and Zombieland, but oh well.

Anyone looking for Lost seasons can get a pretty good deal, as it looked like they had at least three of those. Also, two things to keep in mind. 1) Group your stuff into orders of very similarly priced items, otherwise Hastings automatically gives you the worst possible deal on which ones cost $1. 2) If something on the used page shows as out of stock, check to see if they have it previously viewed. Those count towards the sale too.

I'm definitely not seeing the discount when I go to check out. Do I have to search through the whole list of 'qualifying items' to see if what I want is there?

I picked stuff that was in stock out of my short wishlist: Benjamin Button, Donnie Darko and Audition = no discount. I guess they do not quality. No sale.

I picked up Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, Michael Jackson's This is It and District 9 blus for $38 shipped. At under $13 a pop, not amazing, but not too bad either.
