Some 4.88 Blu-rays at Sams club

I haven't seen this posted here yet so I thought it would for people who don't visit br.com

There are quite a few blu-rays at Sams that are 4.88. The list that I can see is

Mission Impossible
Mission Impossible 2
Mission Impossible 3
Tomb Raider
Patriot Games
Clear and Present Danger
Days of Thunder
Failure to Launch
Disturbia
Face Off
Next
Aeon Flux

I can attest to MI 1, Mi 2, and Tomb raider. Picked up all 3 today for about 16 bucks out the door. They are even marked this price

Nice catch! I didn't plan on upgrading these movies, but for that price, I can't resist.

I got the last copies of Patriot Games & Clear and Present Danger today at mine. I'd buy the others if I saw them for that price. Thanks OP, I'll be checking a few others.

No I listed all the titles I know about in the OP. I just took a picture of those 2 as those are the 2 I personally found, and for a little proof as 4.88 is kind of unbelievable.

Re: Some 4.88 Blu-rays at Sams club

Just got back. Unfortunately, mine had a bunch of $9.88 titles, including these. Perhaps they mismarked them at yours because I did find the same Dvd's for $4.88. I know it's only an extra five bucks each, but I couldn't bear myself to buy them at that price. Thanks anyway for the heads up.

Nice prices on titles I would pick up for that price. Now if I only had a Sam's Club around here.

Unfortunate for me, I didn't see any of those titles at any price. Now if all their 9.88 will ring up at 4.88... that would be great...

Re: Some 4.88 Blu-rays at Sams club

Why are these titles supposedly ringing up at $4.88 when they are marked $9.88?

For someone who hasn't yet made the switch to BD, I'm glad to see prices begin to see these levels. It will make the transition all the more easier to bear when that time comes.

$6.88 is the price underneath the $4.88 price. They have been marked down twice. You can always go to buy them and if they ring up full price tell them you changed your mind.

Re: Some 4.88 Blu-rays at Sams club

I saw several of these BDs marked at $6.88 at my Sam's Club a couple weeks ago. When I saw this thread this weekend, I called them to ask if any were marked at $4.88, and I named off several of them. The guy came back and said he not only didn't see any of those BDs, but the cheapest BDs were marked $8 or $9 something.

I suppose he could be wrong and some of these titles could be there and ring up $4.88, but chances are slim. Maybe I'll check later this week, but I think he's probably right because maybe a month or two ago they reduced their rather large DVD/BD/CD section (2 sides of 1 aisle that took up about 1/4th of the store's width) with 2 tiny shelves (both sides) each maybe 12' long. So I'd say they reduced their inventory by 75% and they put these right when you walk in. They used to have lots of $4.88 DVDs and now they have none. Their BD section has almost nothing now. Games take up 1 side, CDs another part, leaving 2 sides for DVDs and BDs. So, my Sam's Club now makes my pathetic Walmart with its microscopic movie selection look like movie heaven. Then after taking their electronics section down to almost nothing, Walmart told me they are going to reverse course and more than double it in size in a few months. I'll believe it when I see it.

There is a reason you never call on these. He quite possibly bought them himself when you let him in on the deal. It happens all the time, I would do it if someone called me and let me in on it.

Re: Some 4.88 Blu-rays at Sams club

Ok, so I've been hearing that Sin City was 12.99 at Costco as well as Sams. Well I only have a Sams membership. I went in and didn't see it, and the only 4.99 blu's were Mission Impossible 1, and 2. Well I nicely asked a manager if I could look in the blu cage where they keep them as their inventory system is in a word "Shit" Went in there looking for Sin City only. In the case I found at least 10 copies each of Days of Thunder, Clear and Present Danger, Patriot Games, Disturbia, and one copy of Failure to Launch. Since I couldn't buy all 5 right then I just got the 1 copy of Failure to Launch and Disturbia. Going to get the rest tomorrow. They were also marked at 9.88 but they rang up at 4.88.

Point is, if you don't see any, nicely ask a manager to let you look through the blu case, you may find some of these titles they never put out.

My wife picked up Mission: Impossible, Clear and Present Danger, The Sum of All Fears, Failure to Launch for $4.88, and No Reservations for $8.88 at Sam's Club in Greensburg PA the other day. They had some of the others mentioned above too.

Is the Days of Thunder Blu worth it?
