Re: 25% off Previewed Blu-rays & DVDs @ gohastings.com

I just ordered District 9 for $5.93 and shipping was $0.96! I hope this is their new standard shipping rate. Too bad the sale is just on Pre-Viewed movies.

Edit: I was looking at the sale again around 8am this morning, shipping is now back to $2.16

As you can see by the pic below, shipping is .96 cents on used CDs. Probably just a glitch earlier.

Does anyone know if their previously viewed Blus come in Blu-ray cases or DVD cases i.e. Blockbuster?

All of the ones I've ordered from them have come in Blu-ray cases.

Is there any way to see just the "previously viewed" products? None of the "used" ones I have tried work with the coupon code.

Shipping kills the deal. They could've keep the discount and offered free shipping. $2.16 a pop? Nope. Closing tab.

It's pretty much a wash in that case. $2.50 off a $10.00 BD >> $2.16 for shipping.

I wouldn't say it kills the deal. You can still get a lot of newer Blu-rays for $10 or less.

Re: 25% off Previewed Blu-rays & DVDs @ gohastings.com

The titles I picked up have been nowhere near $9.99 (I've been watching them for a while).

I must have ordered 50 titles from hastings when shipping was dirt cheap from them, and they must have taken a bath in lost profits from myself and everyone else ordering from them at that time.

I had been debating on picking up The Invention of Lying last week for $14.99 at Best Buy (yeah, I know it's not that great of a movie overall, but I love Ricky Gervais and the first half of that movie is great - it falls completely apart in the 2nd half).

Click on the "Movies" tab at the top menu.

Then click the "Used Movies" on the left menu

Then click on "Format" in the Grey menu bar and select "Blu Ray DVD"

Then click on "Promotions" in the Grey menu bar and select "Previously Viewed"

Yeah, I wanted Book of Eli, but after tax and shipping, almost $14 bucks. No way I'm paying that for an ex-rental.

Just remember that goHastings does NOT guarantee that PV discs come with bonuses (extra disc or DVD, digital copy). Also, some studios have barebones "rental only" discs (e.g., no commentaries, extras, etc.) and this may be what you receive.

Yeah, this is something you have to look out for.

Looks like they've discounted a bunch of PV Blu-rays since the sale started, might be worth a second look.

Ordered:

Shutter - $3.33
The Wrestler - $5.39

Price drops on titles happened today and the 25% is still active.

I just went back for more.

Went ahead and bit on Where the Wild Things Are - $9.40 after shipping and tax. Now I just hope for a blu ray case and that it's not a rental copy.
