Re: BEN HUR UCE Best Buy Exclusive -- 10.99 at B&M

I never got confirmation, but it appears to be missing only RKO241 (movie on DVD) and the postcards. I already had the movie, so I'm happy.

Got an email that the Ben Hur was backordered, but I knew that. When it gets here, it gets here.

Hopefully I get it asap. I also received the same email for the one I decided to have shipped - I'll not be too happy of I don't get either.

Is anyone else waiting to hear?

I actually just checked the site and it's now showing Unavailable at the store I hope to pick it up from, even though it stated in stock when I ordered.

Guess I'll wait and see...
Hopefully you get yours, but if you do not, the store I went to yesterday had a couple left(Burlington store). But of course that was yesterday morning. Just figured I would throw that out there for you or anyone in the central NC area.

Got a confirmation e-mail that says UCE exclusive version is ready for pickup. Hope that's correct. Now I just have to find the time to get over there...

Apparently they couldn't find it for in-store pick-up. Yeah right. I should've just went over there and got it myself.

Good News! They sent me the email I was waiting on at 715am, so my copy is at the store ready to be picked up

Re: BEN HUR UCE Best Buy Exclusive -- 10.99 at B&M

Many thanks OP for the great find. I ordered one online and it is of course backordered, but we will see if it goes through. I did order one for in-store pick-up and they came back and said they couldn't find it. Tried again at another Best Buy and the order went through and got the pick-up email. Of course fearing they pulled the one that si on sale for 10.99...the movie only version, I went to pick it up, and to my surprise, they pulled the box set!!!!! Greatness! $11.80 out the door, no problems at all. What a great find OP!!!

Stopped by the Peoria, IL Best Buy last night around 10PM and snagged a copy of Ben-Hur UCE with the figurine. There was still one more copy on the shelf if anyone is in the area and interested. They also had multiple copies of Citizen Kane.

I'm pretty late to the party (the clean up crew is in sight) but I'll try my luck at this today. At the least, I should get Kane.

Re: BEN HUR UCE Best Buy Exclusive -- 10.99 at B&M

Decided to check the Best Buy site for other digibooks since Citizen Kane and the Exorcist are on sale.

It looks like Dirty Harry, Batman, Goodfellas, and Seven are on sale as well. At the very least there are Blu-ray versions of those movies on sale for $10.99. I am not familiar enough with the digibooks to know if those titles have multiple releases. I will try to update if I see more.

Edited to add:

Green Mile
The Color Purple
300
The Matrix

All are $10.99 on the site as well and appear to be digibooks.

The closest store for pickup on Ben Hur is two hours away from me so I ordered it online and will wait for the backorder. However, I did find a Citizen Kane at a store near me and will be picking it up later today.

Still iffy but when I ordered the Best Buy exclusive Dark Knight with cheap clown mask novelty last year (?) I got a back order notice but it still ended up shipping weeks later.

Re: BEN HUR UCE Best Buy Exclusive -- 10.99 at B&M

So I got Instore pickup confirmation, and went to the store. 40 min drive. When I get there they can't find the thing and then say that someone got confused and thought the other collectors set was the one.

They did price match, but I didn't get the figurine. Hopefully the backorder does go through.

Re: BEN HUR UCE Best Buy Exclusive -- 10.99 at B&M

ordered Ben Hur online twice for store pickup.

both times was emailed later saying store didnt have them

go to my nearest best buy today, and they have 4 behind the customer service desk- unpurchased, no employee i can find knows why they're pulled, but cant sell.


these arent online purchases, clearly they were pulled so they would be sold, or reserved for employees.

customer service on phone was no help, and wouldnt let me choose the store for pickup instead.

sent crappy email on website- as someone who has spent over $8000 ( mostly for business) at best buy this year alone, hopefully i can get some reponse.

As far as I know not available at our 2 local stores. Just ordered the version that comes with 2BD's & 2 Dvd's from BB online with free shipping. Final cost $11.51.

Re: BEN HUR UCE Best Buy Exclusive -- 10.99 at B&M

What a pain in the ass trying to get this. I ordered it last night and was told it was out of stock at my store. I got to my store to pick up the rest of my order and found 6 copies on the shelf. Get it together Best Buy. It took them an hour to find my copy of Pulp Fiction in the stock room and was alittle upset it come without the slipcover. Oh well I guess I should be grateful. So for anyone looking for Ben Hur just check your store since the website is useless and unreliable.

Yeah, that's why I have stuff shipped to me if available. Not worth the bullshit I experience at the stores.

If no employee knew why they were pulled and no names on them I would have insisted on getting a manager.

If it is, I should order 1 as a backup in case my gift set order never arrives. I ordered the gift set about 15 minutes after the deal started so I should be 1 of the earliest orders, but that doesn't guarantee I'll get it nor that BB.com fulfills orders in the order they arrive. I know some sites (Toys R Us for instance) don't as I've placed multiple orders (some for the same item) and had later orders ship first while the first order went on backorder.

I don't know...it says 2 BDs + 2 DVDs. The Ultimate figure set has 3 BDs, the combo is missing the extras I think. The combo was 34.99 yesterday, but I think a pricing mistake was made. Maybe this was supposed to be the 10.99 one and not the figure set. I picked this up in case my backorder gets cancelled.

Thanks for the tip on this. I was able to pick up both Ben Hur and Citizen Kane for $22. Even the checkout guy was amazed at the discount on Ben Hur

I was able to get both Citizen Kane and a Ben Hur today at Best Buy. I went in to pickup my online store pickup of Citizen Kane and was surprised to find two of the Ben Hur sets left so I grabbed one. Thanks again for the heads up on this deal!
