Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

Family & Friends 20% sale this weekend.

Stopped in my store tonight to see if it was worth stopping by tomorrow. There were quite a few new to me BDs priced at $5.

There was a version of the '90s Dracula (like the one pictured here: https://smile.amazon.com/Stokers-Dra...ula+blu+ray+4k) that I had never seen. Also a 3-disc Moneyball and a double feature of Hotel Transylvania/Monster House.

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll be there. Think I'll grab the Garbo and Carol Lombard sets and the Will Rogers set on DVD, which I'd passed on last time. A shame we don't have a better selection of Blu-Rays locally, but hope springs eternal.

Here, those sets disappeared weeks ago, unless they've restocked this week.

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

The BL store I'm thinking of doesn't get lots of foot traffic. Those sets were still available as of last weekend, but I'm not expecting anything more.

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

Might have to finally pick up Ice Age 2, the only one I don't have in hi-def (the regular DVD looks like ass.)

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

Had a good afternoon. I managed to grab everything mentioned above, plus a Super Friends: Legendary Super Powers Show DVD set...mostly because it was $4 with the discount.

Then decided to drive on to the Hanover store, which I hadn't visited in years. They were actually even more picked-over than my local store, but I did find the Bram Stoker's Dracula Supreme Cinema Series BD that Cardsfan mentioned above. I'd never seen anything like it before either:


The front and back of the digbook are lucite-like, but the disk is still housed in a cardboard sleeve. Not very practical, but it looks cool.

Otherwise it was the same old stock...although Hanover still has over half the "King of Queens" series if anybody's local and interested.

Wow, that's a good find. Nothing new in the 4 SoCal stores near me - someone, please buy those Disney stuff and end it already

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

found The Bourne Ultimatum, The Exorcist (extended version) (BD) and Ford at Fox - 2 silents (DVD) in addition to the Dracula Supreme Series. All pleasant surprises.

Everything else was same-o same-o. And those $10 used films are just insane....

awesome. Hopefully they'll make it to the west coast sometime. Of course, past the promotion date. Checked 2 more SoCal stores - same old, same old. Saw a lot of James Bond DVDs been dumped

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

How much are the Ford at Fox? Is it the box or single discs?

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

I hit the Pearl Street superstore at about 3 PM. They were either pretty picked out, or they may have just not gotten much for awhile.

Their were a number of titles new to me at BL, but most were not familiar to me or were junk.

I bought the Moneyball 3 pack & a Rum Diaries DVD.

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

I didn't even bother to go in this weekend. That's a first as I've hit every 20% off sale since the store here opened.

The last time I checked the media section there was nothing but old, very picked over, stock. I think I've purchased 6 titles from BL this year. I used to purchase that many, or more, every week.

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

I know we've had discussions in the past about the random frequency of Big Lots coupons. I'd say I've usually received one every other month on average. However, I got one today. And that makes 3 in the last month. Anyone else seeing an increase?

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

I just received the first $5 off $15 I've ever gotten after years of regular coupons. Once their DVD section started filling with junk, I stopped regularly going to Big Lots at all. I haven't been in one in six months.

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

I got a $5 off $15 today as well. That's the first in 4-8 weeks for me (don't know for sure - lost track). Before the last F&F 20% off I was getting a $5 off $20 about every 2-3 weeks with some months seeing one every week. The last one before today was 2 weeks before the last F&F event and none since. I also passed on that F&F - first one ever I didn't at least buy some snacks.

Hit the Superstore today. Not only no new media; but several of the grocery shelves were 100% empty. I don't think BL know what to do with a "superstore"!

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

Big Lots is one of the worst companies spamming their sales. I don't need to be reminded five times a week about their mattress sale.

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

Stopped by a store today and in addition to the normal 4 sided BD/DVD/CD rack, there was a Christmas DVD display on the end of an aisle of Halloween decorations. The only BDs were the Ice Age Christmas film and Christmas in Connecticut. Both were $5.

Re: Big Lots Blu-rays

I got the Ice Age Christmas special in 3D for about that much- it's ridiculously short, only for Ice Age and/or 3D completists (if it's the non-3D edition, forget it!)
