Re: Universal facebook five dollar coupon any BD

Is the consensus that Walmart is mostly not honoring these coupons? If they are, are there any good universal titles on sale this week (I can't keep the studios straight. Thanks for the help).

What I did, was go to best buy and go to the bluray section. You can sort the movies by studio. Pick universal and viola you have all the universal titles (that best buy carries anyways, which should be almost all if not all of them) Then you can make a list of what you want and check prices that way.

Walmart honored mine for the "8 Mile" Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack.

That's exactly what I did, and I had no problems using the coupon and a $5 RZ coupon.
Lately, I've had better luck at the customer service desk for these types of purchases, they seem better experienced about getting the register to accept the coupons with less fuss. The normal cashiers always seem to call for help, potentially raising a red flag.

Picked up "9" at Best Buy for $12.99. They didn't even try and scan the coupon, the cashier just took $5 off.

I tried to PM the website for Incredible Hulk for 15.99 and use the coupon and they wouldn't go for it. This was at the customer service desk.

I had the same problem with BSG: The Plan at the CS desk. They would either PM the website or take the coupon, but not both. So I used the coupon thinking I could do a PM later, but they took the $5 off the price before taxes, which might explain why they could only accept one of the two (as both were pre-tax discounts).

Re: Universal facebook five dollar coupon any BD

has anyone tried to get the coupons to print in teh past week? A friend has tried with 3 different emails and accounts on Facebook and no matter the computer or printer, it says printed and doesnt print. I tried the same at work today with an email i setup and new account and it says printed but nothing goes to the printer cue on either of my local printers. Glad I already got mine when it started but if its not working then they shouldnt let people try to print em and then it doesnt work.

Re: Universal facebook five dollar coupon any BD

I was prepared to get turned down at my BB store, so I was pleasantly surprised that I was not. I went in to get "Battlestar Galactica: The Plan" bluray for $14.99, but saw no such price on the disc or shelf, it was the regular $19.99. I had a cashier scan it to make sure, as I know their web site shows it being $14.99 this week, but it rang up $19.99. The cashier had to call a manager to get the price match for the web site, but then I also gave him the $5.00 Universal coupon and he had to call the manager again to take the other $5.00 off. At no point did anyone ever even mention anything about "regular" or "sale prices" to get out of using it. The only thing I heard was when he asked a fellow cashier if he had ever seen one of these coupons before and he jokingly asked me, "did you make this?"

Re: Universal facebook five dollar coupon any BD

Was able to get the neighbor to print out two more coupons this morning.

Wasnt going to get it but decided to get The Jackal blu for $15 at walmart. They had to manually punch it in after arguing 5-10 mins that the Jackal was a Universal title and that it was not on sale. The giant white sticker on the from of the movie that says UNIVERSAL or the logo on the back wasnt good enough for the cashier and it took a supervisor to review it. *shakes head*

Mine came off after tax, and I didn't even think about going back to do the PM later, but I just did that today with no problems. Thanks for the idea.

Re: Universal facebook five dollar coupon any BD

I got shot down at my local Best Buy. I tried to get The Thing which was on sale for $9.99 but the cashier noticed that the coupon said it excludes sale items. I guess that $9.99 is a good price for it but I decided to pass.

I've been lurking around the bargain forums for a while. Hi.

......9.99 at BB is a sale. I'm pretty sure it's $24.99 at least on normal pricing at BB. Jesus, I hate there pricing.

It's been 9.99 at BB for weeks. How many weeks before the sale price is the regular price?

Re: Universal facebook five dollar coupon any BD

Got denied at BB for 9 because it was on sale. So I did an end-run instead, and went to Target. Bought it at full price, minus the $5 coupon. Then took the receipt to the Customer Service desk and had them price match the BB sale price.

Re: Universal facebook five dollar coupon any BD

BestBuy.com has Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Eastern Promises, Van Helsing, and Seabiscuit for $14.99 each right now. Going to have to pricematch on the copy of "Hot Fuzz" I bought a couple weeks ago for $15.99 before coupon, and probably going to pick up "Shaun of the Dead." Contemplating Eastern Promises and Seabiscuit at that price also. Hmmm.

I got the same error! Anyone else get it and figure out a fix?
