thats strange usually the way it lists discount on your reciept only shows up if you either A. get a price match
usually if a price is a sale price it simply says sales disc after the amount of the discount

but good for you for getting this 13.99. just seems very strange, we will see if anyone else pops up with this as well.

had you read elsewhere that people had picked it up for 13.99 and decided to try for yourself or did you just happen to pick it up and walk to the register and thats what it came up as.

wow, awesome guy.

you gave no information in your original post - like WAS IT MARKED THIS PRICE, HOW YOU FOUND OUT IT WAS THIS PRICE, ETC. which helps people determine if it is worth their time and effort, just a receipt answers no questions.

Uh, not how but why. If it's in the computer why would it be YMMV unless it is an ad misprint, computer bar code error, or whatever. Before I drive all over to track it down--my BB not nearby at all, would like to know how likely this is since it certainly isn't online and also what I might have to do to get it; eg, got a Target raincheck for LOTR Trilogy from Black Friday which worked 5 days later since probably it was advertised wrong and their computers were uncorrected.

Re: Back To The Future Trilogy 13.99 Best Buy!!! YMMV

Its just very strange like i said normally if its a discounted price done automaticly by bestbuys computers it will say the dollar amount off followed by SALE DISC ( like on my close encounters i bought yesterday it says 12.00 sale disc) but if its a manual discount done by a cashier like when you get a price match it simply says the amount of the discount and not mentioning the word sale. ( 2.00 disc) like it says on your reciept.

it will be intresting to see if anyone else comes forward with this same success.
looks like i will be taking a trip up to the the Northridge bestbuy in the morning which is store 1180
the store where the op purchased it at.
please note iam not doubting you got it for that price, just saying that how your reciept looks, it looks more like a manual price adjustment rather than the 13.99 price being in their computer.

I have to go to Best Buy tomorrow to return something, so I'll check and see if it rings up that price at my Best Buy too. Will post back if I find anything out.

Nope not for a few years anyways, they dont put pm or price match next to it simply says what your reciept says, which is the dollar amount followed by disc. I get price matches all the time at bestbuy.

I will be heading out to that Bestbuy in Northridge first thing in the morning to be there at open and see what happens. I just find it very odd the way its discounted on your reciept and that no one else on any of the forums has had this luck. But congrats.

I hope this price error is in all the California chains! Someone report back if it succeeds in other cities!

I will report back if it even succeeds at the same store that the reciept indicates in the first post.

IAM just not sure though based on how that discount is shown on the reciept in the OP
It really looks like a manual price adjustment done by the cashier.

I hate that BB. The parking lot is a pain to get into.

I am not a fan of these films, but I'm on my way to Best Buy right now with a printout of the original image in this thread to buy every copy on the shelf. I will raise HOLY HELL if they don't give me the price shown in the receipt above.

Re: Back To The Future Trilogy 13.99 Best Buy!!! YMMV

I looked online at bestbuy.com and it has the normal price up. However, I also noticed something else. There is something called "Jodeci: Back to the Future: The Very Best of Jodeci" that sells for $13.99. My guess is that at the OP's store someone mislabeled the set as this instead. Since it rang up with "back to the Future" in the title that cashier accepted it.

If you search the number on the receipt that says 1330888 on their website, it does come up with the BTTF Blu-ray. So it doesn't seem to be a mislabeling type of thing.

The Regular price on the receipt says $54.99 with a 41.00 Discount. Maybe the cashier liked you?

But it could be something like they were supposed to put $13.99 on the other item, but put it on this sku instead. An easy price mistake. I thought Best Buy had their computers updated by the company, unlike Walmart that controls their prices at the store. But I could be wrong.
