And they follow up a pretty good week with a crappy one.

So Best Buy is getting a month early In Bruges (as well as Alpha Dog and Assault)? Didn't know that. I'll have to go grab it. In Bruges is one of the best movies of the past few years.

I'd consider "In Bruges" at $15 and the other two at $10. Interesting that BB is getting them early though. Wish they had some sort of combo deal on them.

I love the BD/DVD combos but I think I'll wait to get Book of Eli from Ebay. Thanks for the prices, Annie.

Target again beats the piss out of Best Buy with prices. Who would have thought?

Really??? All of the new releases are almost identical prices, and most of the newer titles that Target is offering for $22.99, BB is offering for $19.99. Yeah, Target has some $14.99 titles, but they're either titles that Best Buy has for $14.99 this week already, or older titles that have been well cheaper than $14.99 on many occasions. Best Buy also has a bunch of exclusive releases at very reasonable prices. You're insane if you think, comparing the Target ad for this week to the Best Buy ad for this week, that Target even comes close to beating Best Buy's, let alone "beating the piss out of" it.

Re: Best Buy Media Prices (June 13 - June 19, 2010

I guess I can get Alice next week, since I couldn't to the store to use the $10 coupon last week. $2 cheaper is even better.

I'm also ordering Shutter Island now through Bing. Hopefully I'll get the $5.20 cash back and the $6.00 back from next week's price match to make it around $15 before tax.

I don't think they can do price adjustments on web orders. They will have to refund it at the old price, and repurchase it at the new price. Thus, you'll likely lose the cashback...

According to this-

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Help-Top...at204400050011


-they will price match the difference. Also, if you wait until Sunday for pick-up, they will automatically charge you the lower price of $19.99 for Shutter Island.


EDIT: I failed to mention that I have returned items to Best Buy in the past and Bing never deleted the cashback.

I have done two price adjustments for web orders at BB, and both times they returned the web order and re-rang at the new price. I asked them once why they were doing that, and they said it was the only way to do it. Whether or not it's true, I can't say, but that's my two experiences...

As for returning to BB and losing cashback, they definitely do. Maybe you got lucky, but here is evidence that they do take it away:


As for them automatically adjusting prices at pick-up if it goes down in price before you pick it up, that's good to know! I'll have to remember that...

EDIT: I just noticed this line in the link you provided:
Please call 1-888-BEST BUY (1-888-237-8289) for all BestBuy.com Price Match Guarantee transactions.
So I guess the key is to call the 800# to price-match, and not do it in-store... Thanks for the link! I didn't know the 800# could do that...

Re: Best Buy Media Prices (June 13 - June 19, 2010

Placed a pickup order for In Bruges and Shutter Island thru bing. Got my 10.20 cashback pending. I'm hoping I can get both on Sunday (with an automatic price adjustment) as the ad doesn't state that In Bruges is available starting Tuesday and the store shows it as available. Makes each title $16 before taxes.

*My pickup email came thru and Shutter Island is set aside and In Bruges was a preorder for 7/13.

Same here. I ordered both of these. I won't pick up Shutter Island until Sunday (automatic adjustment). I'm hoping In Bruges becomes available Tuesday, but I'm not really sure what will happen with that situation.

But you'll miss out on the $4 to $5.20 from Bing.
