Mine is ready to be picked up. Hopefully they don't decide to cancel it between now and Tues. when I come in to pick up Guardian of the Galaxy.



Best Buy currently has Mr. Peabody & Sherman 3D for 19.99. There is a $5 off coupon here under Home Entertainment.

Did you get an email about the cancellation? I was planning on picking mine up tomorrow.

I've had a lot of the same problems others have had with BB, but I'm really hoping they don't go out. As a Elite member I get free expedited shipping and a few hundred in RZ dollars every year. I still occasionally shop Amazon but NY has long charged sales tax on Amazon and sometimes you just like to see something before you buy it.

I'll weep, because that means one less store to be competitive in pricing and really only leave Amazon, Target, and Walmart.

You really think they would intentionally misprice something just to cancel it on the customer? What good would come of that for the company?

Same here. I rarely buy anything there, but they certainly do help keep prices down on everything they sell. Do people want to see us back to the days when things were regularly priced closer to the MSRP due to lack of competition?

Hell no! I'll weep the day that I have to rely on Walmart or Target for electronics or waiting for it to be delivered via Amazon. I can imagine that Amazon will be less hasty in their mail approach as well as there will not be much we can do about it as consumers. Right now they get our Prime orders out quickly as they know when can just price match their goods at Best Buy.

Just got my ship notice on the $5 BR so that was not a mistake apparently

I have the exact same agenda as you for tomorrow. Pick up November Man and Guardians, and buy Peabody 3D w/coupon.

Thanks - darkdaze73. I picked it up at the store for $14.99. The shelf price was $27.xx but it rang up $19.99. The coupon as usual won't scan. The clerk had to go to customer service where they took $5 off.

Thanks from me, too. Had the exact same experience as above.

Picked up my Guardians of the Galaxy steelbook around 11:30 today. They were already sold out of their in store allotment by then. The guy that was handling online orders said that he heard they may be getting some more in on Friday. He couldn't confirm it, but it's just what he has been hearing.

For those 3D'ers out there > X-Men Days of Future Past 3D is $19.99. Can get that down to $14.99 with the $5 coupon. And if you're lucky, they may even have the Sentinel "exclusive BB" packaging for the same price.

That's one ugly looking packaging. I don't get into superhero movies but what does an 80s Walkman/ghetto blaster had to do with the film anyhow?

Uh, you may want to see the film before making that comment. It's actually a pretty pivotal plot point and for most people the packaging has been getting good reviews.

^And that's the point. If you haven't seen the movie, you wouldn't understand.

But understanding something doesn't necessarily means that I'll have to like it..

Re: Best Buy / bestbuy.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray

No, but a steelbook like that is clearly intended for fans of the film, and fans of the film will appreciate the cover. If you had no intention on buying it anyway, then you don't need to like it.
