As much as I want to buy some movies the week they come out, I just can't do it anymore. If you're willing to wait even a few weeks, the odds are pretty good you'll get them much cheaper.

That's the way it's getting for me, too, especially for movies I've seen in theaters and may not get around to watching the Blu-rays until who knows when. After waiting and paying $15 for Sucker Punch only to have it drop to $13 a couple weeks later, just about everything coming out now, including Star Wars, is going to wait until the Christmas sales - come on Black Friday week! - to get picked up. The LOTR EEs are another one. I watched my DVD copies ONCE, when they came out, and never looked at them again, so why pay top dollar?

Yep, same here. The first week prices that are "sale" are just crazy. Wait it out. Gonna get X-men next week. Maybe Thor will be cheaper the next coming week ad.

The only movies that I will buy now on release week are the Disney/Pixar films. Typically these are the only ones I have seen where the 1st week, mainly because of coupons are usually the best price I will get them for unless I get them say used from goHastings for example later on in the future.

Re: Best Buy Media Prices (September 18 - 24, 2011)

Anyone have a scan of this ad? I have a hard time believing that price for X-men (unless first week sales were a complete disaster).

EDIT: just saw the ad scan. That is the correct price. Wow, that thing must've completely tanked last week! Sucks too, I have an unopened copy of it downstairs waiting for family movie night tomorrow night. Looks like it will be going back to Best Buy and then getting re-purchased on Sunday!!

(Who am I kidding? We live about 30 minutes form the closest Best Buy. I don't think the $8 is worth it! I'll just take it with me tomorrow when I go to but SW and see if it's on sale yet.)

You don't need to bring back the movie, just the reciept, they will adjust it. So open it and enjoy it.

According to last weeks sales number, it was #1.

For the week ending 09/11/11, X-Men: First Class, powered its way to the top of the Blu-ray sales chart. Signaling the first high profile issue from the slate of Summer 2011 blockbusters, the mutants unleashed their fury and infused energy into the home video market. X-Men: First Class is distributed by 20th Century Fox and finished its worldwide run with a total of $353 million. The mutants were an overwhelming success in their first week of Blu-ray release as they achieved 60% of their total package unit sales from the HD format.

  1. X-Men: First Class
  2. Scarface
  3. Hanna
  4. Rio
  5. Fringe: The Complete Third Season
  6. Zombieland
  7. Sons of Anarchy: Season Three
  8. The Office: Season Seven
  9. No Country for Old Men
  10. Priest

Why the heck are Zombieland and NCFOM on that list? They're still top sellers after all this time? WOW!

It may be an indication at how low the sales are for the week. My guess is X-Men won but did not have huge sales numbers.

Zombieland is on there because it was free with the Dead Island video game at Best Buy that week. It counts as a sale. Not sure about NCFOM. There must have been some promotion somewhere for that title.

edit: NCFOM was in the target ad for $8 so that caused the sales spike.

It always amuses/concerns me when the Top 10 list for BD sales can include movies that happen to be on sale. Says a lot about the current home video climate.

Guess I should cancel my amazon dumbo and spooky buddies orders since I'll save $4, even with amazon's coupons.

I don't see any reason to assume anything about X-Men's sales from that. X-Men could have sold a ton to be #1, but the rest of the sales for spots #2-10 could be poor.

Damn, Just when I thought CBS was only releasing Hawaii Five-O as a DVD, they make the BD a Best Buy Exclusive. Hmmm, pondering whether or not I should get it. The show looks fantastic in Hi-Def.

.....nice Lion King exclusive case, I wonder if this is like all the previous iron/steel books where you can return the receipt after release to get your "deposit" back but still keep the free case?
