I've been waiting for a reasonable price on this title. I'm in for one.

Thanks for pointing this out OP! I had a small balance left on a gift card and was going to use if for "9" next week when it was on sale....but I would much rather have African Queen. I also was able to pick up one of the last few in the area for in store pickup. =)

Sadly, my store does not have it in stock (although they could just have one or something, so might have to stop in and check then). Still, with shipping it's worth it.

I'm stopping in my local store on the way to work and hoping they have it. If not, I'll order it when I get home tonight.

$15.94 including tax and store pick up.

Now what do I do?, wait for an email telling me when to pick it up?

Thanks OP! Had a $5 Reward Zone Certificate I was looking to use, so picked it up for $10.70, including tax (free shipping with Premier Silver).

I don't know about other users' experiences with In-Store Pick-Up, but I have had nothing but terrible experiences. You order it in the morning, and they have ALL DAY to walk to the shelf, pick it up, take it over to customer service, and yet it takes several days (at a minimum) for them to do this. Then, when you finally get the confirmation, it is hit or miss as to whether they actually have it over at customer service; I've gone in before and had to go get it off the shelf for them. When something shows up as in-stock, it really shouldn't take a week (the average for the few times I've used this option) for me to be able to go in and get it.

You must have a crappy best buy, then. I've ordered many things with in-store pickup and it has never taken more than a couple of hours before it is ready. Items have always been waiting for me when I go to pick them up.

Between this and the Drawn Together Movie on Tuesday, I've bought more at Best Buy this week than I have in the past 6 months.

Me too. In fact the other day I used in-store pick up for the Drawn Together BD. Took maybe 1-2 hours for the pick-up confirmation and when I arrived it was there ready.

Not likely since it's just a one day deal. They didn't match the South Park deal from Sunday.

Tempted to upgrade my DVD, but I think I'll wait for a good deal on the boxset version with all the goodies.

Re: BestBuy.com Deal of the Day -- April 23 Only: The African Queen - $15.00

Thanks Adboy 151!

My local BB showed stock, and as I knew AQ came with a slipcover, I decided not to do in-store pickup so I could choose my own copy if they had more than one. Slipcovers can really vary in condition.

They had two copies, so I picked the best one. Needless to say, the $15 did not ring up automatically so the girl at checkout had to go check the online price. I was actually quite fine with this, as two guys came in from the wrong end of the checkout and tried to beat me to the girl, who had no customers. They did not look like they were having a good time waiting for the girl to pricematch and then Manager's approval! Oh well!

Great price - cheers!

Thanks OP! Been dying to pick this up and this is a great price.

FWIW, I do like a dozen or so store pickups at Best Buy a year and have never had a problem. Usually, I get the confirmation/pick-up email within an hour at the latest and it's always been a good, undamaged copy of the proper item set out for me.
