I've noticed they tend to send out a personal coupon if you went a long time between shopping trips and recently visited the store.

I think this is true. I went over a year without seeing one then I got two $5 off $20 in a row, a week apart. I used both but have not gotten anything else. I think they both ended up in my spam folder too, even though I have the sending address in my contacts list.

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

The local BL got a fairly large restock (mostly dvd, but a few blus). Unfortunately the only thing I found particularly cool was Marlene Dietrich: The Glamor Collection (DVD Set) which I already bought from BL for $5 (now it's $8).

I did buy Point Pleasant complete 3 disc series (1 season) for $3 as a blind buy.

I came up $2 short for my $5 off $15 so I put back 2 blu-rays at $5: The Graduate & Fargo (the film).

I was told much of the store's Monday delivery wasn't out yet, so I will try to either go back or hit the other local BL. They FINALLY sold their token Will Rogers box (sad it took over a month at $8)

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

Point Pleasant is worth a blind buy at that price. I remember when it first aired and the network dumped it without much regard.

It's certainly full of eye candy for us males!

I also noticed the actor who played "Jesse" on Breaking Bad in the first couple minutes, hope it was more than a walk on.

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

Lots of new stuff today; but imo was mostly junk.

Used my coupon on $3 Across The Universe blu/dvd (they had several); + the $5 blus I put back the other day: Fargo (movie) & The Graduate. Bought a little food to hit $15.

wow, you bet there's a restock. another store near me was filled to the brim with a ton of new BDs and DVDs. Lot of Fox titles followed by Sony and most priced at $5. The Disney titles were mixed in as well. Nice classic movies on DVD like Cimmarron, Man from Laramie, Jack Lemmon collection, Warners Bogey titles and others. While am not thrilled at paying $5 per title, I did make an exception and picked up the following:

DVD:

Saving Mr.Wu (a Well Go Asian action flick) - $3
The Missing (Extended Cut edition - Tommy Lee Jones, Cate Blanchett) - $3 (what a pity this isn't on BD yet)

BD:
The Raven (John Cusack) - $3
Aloha - $5
Moneyball - 3 Disc Walmart Exclusive edition - $5
Hitman (with UV) - $5

The Missing-Extended Cut is a great film, it would be a great get if I didn't already have it. Highly recommended.

Yeah, I would take Rob Roy in a heartbeat, fantastic flic. I do already have it on Blu-ray but the VUDU Digital Copy that it comes with (provided it ain't expired) is easily worth the $3 by itself. (and the disc is not D2D)

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

I had a unique & unpleasant experience today at the BL on 72nd in Tacoma, WA.

Yesterday, I purchased "Across the Universe Blu-ray/DVD Combo for $3 - coupon.

Took it home, opened it & it was missing the blu. I returned it today with all packaging & a receipt & requested an exchange. The clerk said she had to get manager's approval because I might have stolen the disc (her words). The manager did approve it it with no hassle; but I found this quite insulting. I opened the other one in the store & it did have both discs.

I hope BL management reads this. Not a good way to treat a regular customer of many years.

While it does feel that way, try to look at it from their side as well - agree that the choice of words weren't apt, BL store personnel aren't exactly groomed in the art of speak. Imagine if your eBay customer claimed the same - that the disc was missing, what would be your gut reaction ? A similar thing happened in Barnes and Noble a couple of years ago when a seemingly well mannered/spoken young man at the register said the same to me. Spontaneity 'demanded' that I feel enraged and insulted but nothing's gained by it. I spoke to a Manager, she was apologetic and I mentioned to her that choice of words are important if you need returning customers. Glad that at the end, it worked out for you. In your case, you could have contacted Sony directly - their customer service is much better than any other studio's.

On a related note, back in May, I purchased 'Breakfast Club' from Frys on a weekend sale. As is the norm with many of us, I didn't around to viewing it until a month later. When I opened the shrinkwrap and the case, there was no disc inside, just the UV code sheet. I immediately called Universal - mistake as no one receives a call, its just a call box for leaving messages. I wrote Universal, a few days later they sent me a response asking me to direct the question to another email they provided and that I would receive a replacement copy. I have not heard back to date, despite a couple of reminders. Reached out to Frys but they don't have this in stock no more.

I own 127 HOURS and ONE HOUR PHOTO on dvd, good flicks. OUT OF THE FURNACE is a good drama, no extras really on the disc though.

I hope it gets better. I'm through 3 episodes & it feels like General Hospital for teens with some Satanism thrown in!

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

Visited the local BL today and noticed the odd new disk but not the cornucopia others are describing and it's getting depressing. They get maybe one out of three new finds listed here, but rarely the ones I'm desiring. And as I visit a few BL stores, this doesn't seem to be a case of a reseller plucking them dry. Stores in the next county still have copies of the Target Fantastic Four BD digibook...which for curiosity value I'd think would be first to go...but little else that's exciting.

I did buy a copy of "Thank You for Smoking" on DVD for $3, which I think was new.

I didn't say it was going to change your life. From what I remember it was like a Satanic version of Dark Shadows.

Laidback,

I got a copy of one of those Rob Roy's today @ Big Lots. Did yours have a digital copy inside? Just curious before I open mine. I forgot I own it already, but I'll keep it if yours had a DC.

Thank you, I appreciate that. I'll check my copy at home to make sure my original copy isn't somehow beat up 5 ways to sunday and then return my BL copy (if anybody is looking for it, I'll probably won't return it before Friday). Oh wells...its just the kinda week I'm having.

I've never seen the film, but made a few trips out of town recently and noticed two or three copies at other BL stores, but passed because there weren't any extras and figured it was a Redbox (etc.) variant. Just realized that Fox went cheap on this one...not even a trailer. Per everybody's recommendation, will look for it again the next time I'm driving.

Am I right in thinking there will be another Friends & Family sale in the next few weeks?
