Blockbuster 5 for $20 Sale (Previously Viewed)

I stopped by Blockbuster yesterday and was given a flyer about this upcoming sale. It starts Tuesday (5/17) and lasts through 6/6. 5 previously viewed blu-rays (or dvds) for $20. Anything $9.99 or less is included. I went through the blu-rays at one store and nearly everything has been marked down to $9.99 or less since the last sale. There were only a handful of titles priced above $9.99.

I can't wait until Tuesday!


Update: 5 for $20 is DEAD

The new sale is:

3 for $25 or 5 for $40 on NEW dvds/blu-rays $19.99 or less

3 for $15 or 5 for $25 on USED dvds/blu-rays/games $14.99 or less


Good through the end of the year.

Re: Blockbuster 5 for $20 Sale (Previously Viewed)

Yeah, I'm pretty lucky here. We had one close down, but there's still 3 I can get to in a 20 minute round trip.

I put together a partial list of the $9.99 titles during the 2 for $15 (man, and I thought that was a great deal), but I'm not sure where it is. If I can find it, I'll add it to the OP and include some of the ones that have dropped since.

I was in my store tonight and they said the sale starts next Friday, the 20th, not Tuesday the 17th. They also said that they were adding a LOT of DVDs and Blus to the previewed list.

Hopefully it's everywhere. Blockbuster sales tend to be YMMV.

Re: Blockbuster 5 for $20 Sale (Previously Viewed)

Hmm, I haven't given a Blockbuster any money since I quit working there in 2009, but this might send me back into a store. Of course I have to make quite a journey to do so since all the stores around me have gone out of business.

Re: Blockbuster 5 for $20 Sale (Previously Viewed)

I was looking to see where the closest store was to me since most have closed and came upon this
http://www.blockbuster.com/content/v...eLocations.pdf
Has anyone been to one of these? Is there anything special about them.

Re: Blockbuster 5 for $20 Sale (Previously Viewed)

All Blockbuster stores in my area are too far out of my way now (I think 5 miles to the closest one instead of just 1 mile away before they closed most of them), and $4 for a used DVD isn't that great when if I wait long enough I usually can find what I want for $3 new at Big Lots or for $2 at Walmart or Amazon on Black Friday.

1. It's blu-rays. $4 for a blu-ray isn't too bad of a price at all, and there seems to be a pretty large selection we'll have to look through.

2. Five miles is crazy far out of the way? Really? I could understand if you had to walk five miles. But driving or even biking, that's not that far. I guess maybe if you have really shitty gas mileage, that might up the price a little bit. However, I think that at $4 a blu-ray, it wouldn't that big of an impact.

Anyone by chance get this "e-mail"? Just wondering on the timing of it and who exactly would get an e-mail for a possible head start to the sale.

Someone needs to pay closer attention to the thread before responding. We wouldn't be discussing a Blockbuster DVD sale in the Blu-ray thread.
