The first part happened to me too, only they dealt with it in line. I was using it on the Last Starfighter blu-ray/dvd combo. The guy called his manager over and she looked at it. They agreed it should work, so they just used the "vendor coupon" button/option and ran it through manually. That, and no tax, made the total $10.

I just know I hear about identity theft and people stealing information from that site, so I don't want to provide Facebook with my real info just to get 2 $5 off BD coupons. It would've been nice, but life goes on without... unless I can have an account there without my real info? (Somehow I doubt that as they specialize in collecting and storing people's personal info.)

Maybe they were right to be paranoid. I just saw this New York Times article about web coupons, and it's a bit of an eye-opener.

The pertinent section reads:

"While the coupons look standard, their bar codes can be loaded with a startling amount of data, including identification about the customer, Internet address, Facebook page information and even the search terms the customer used to find the coupon in the first place." There's more elaborative information in the article.

Re: Universal facebook five dollar coupon any BD

Best Buy today... the Cashier checked something in her drawer in comparison to my coupon. Then said she had to verify that I didn't have a coutnerfeit internet coupon. I said nope it is legit from Universal's facebook. She said yep she could tell it wasn't fake. She said there have been a lot of attempts to pass off counterfeit internet coupons.... While I didn't find out what identifies a counterfeit, I bet it is due to the overlaying items that print but wouldn't photocopy correct... maybe.. but it really doesn't matter since mine was a legit coupon on a legit product...

If you can ascertain that he knew he was using a Universal coupon on a Sony title then go ahead!

Re: Universal facebook five dollar coupon any BD

Lol. Isn't it obvious that it's a Universal Studios coupon? Ugh. I'm not even going to get into this nonsense again. There isn't even a chance a mistake was made here, unlike the other guy's situation. I guess I'll leave it at that.

Re: Universal facebook five dollar coupon any BD

After having a "polite" argument w/ the cashier at BB today, I was finally able to use one of these coupons and picked up Apollo 13 for $15. And when I get home and take my items out of the bag, guess what it is in the bag... yep, she put my coupon in my bag

Re: Universal facebook five dollar coupon any BD

I'm still watching Apollo 13 on HD DVD, what other good deal Universals are there??? Suggestions?

Edit: looks like Wanted at Wally World may be a good bet.

Re: Universal facebook five dollar coupon any BD

Picked up Fletch at BB for $5. The transaction took damn near 20 minutes after three clerks looked it over and gave the "counterfeit internet coupons are floating around" speech, who eventually called the manager that showed up 15 minutes later, he went off to verify it online and finally was able to override it. Apparently it was the first instance of the coupon being used there.

Ugh. Another second-week price drop on a new release. Going to have to make my way out to Best Buy sometime this week and price-match "Apollo 13."

Re: Universal facebook five dollar coupon any BD

The Bourne Trilogy. Lowest price prior: $49.99.
Individual Bourne BDs. Lowest price prior: $15.49.
Current price for the individual BDs after coupon: $11.99.

Very tempted despite the fact they're the BD+DVD combo disc.

Most likely will purchase An American Werewolf In London. Amazon had it for a brief period of time for $13.99; but $11.99 (after coupon) has been the best price since its release.

Land of the Lost will be $11.99 (after coupon), however, after being found for $10-12 on Black Friday with no coupon; I can wait for the price to dip below $10.

If I can get enough friends and family to give me their coupons, this may be the week I get Children of Men.
