Splurged tonight and used 12 or so coupons, most were $5 after coupon but went up to $20 to get the Thor 3D bundle and the Anchorman exclusive. Hate to pay more than $10, but want to see Thor this week before seeing Avengers and figured what the heck, might as well get ready for 3D.

3rd time -- 1/8/12 - 1/28/12

4th -- 4/29/12 - 5/12/12
I was only going by my RZ history. It shows me using the $5 coupon on 7/5 and the last time on 7/28.

I knew about this but assumed it went through tomorrow since deals always end Mondays and was going to go today finally to pick up the Fringe seasons. oops. sounds like they do it frequently, so the crappy dvds I have sitting around will remain for now. I haven't set foot in a BB store in a few years though...this seems to be worth it.

That's probably $5 RZ certs coupons and not $5 US coupons.

Not to be confused with new release day which is Tuesday.

I just found a receipt in one of my BRs that shows me using the U&S coupon last 07/11 so you're definitely right, it did go on during July.

That's what that coupon was. I totally forgot about it. I loved that coupon!

Here are the previous U&S dates:

5/8/11 - 6/4/11
10/9/11 - 10/29/11
1/8/12 - 1/28/12
4/22/12 - 5/12/12

I didn't get nearly as many this time out, mainly because they didn't have as much of what I wanted that applied, or didn't already get during the last promotion. And call me cheap, but I was also mainly only looking to get stuff that was only going to cost me $9.99 or less with the coupon. Also, my local store was either out, low, or never had some of the titles I was looking for.

What I did end up getting was...

Clueless ($7.99)
The Big Lebowski - Limited Edition book package w/ Fandango movie cash ($7.99)
Hot Tub Time Machine ($4.99)
Ghost ($4.99)
Excalibur ($4.99)

...and because I couldn't find anything else in the allotted time, I picked up Phil Collins - Live at Montreaux for a friend of mine who didn't get to take advantage of the promotion, on the last day. Hated to see the coupon go to waste otherwise.

I thought that was the whole point! Now that I think about it, I did spend $15 on one disc last time around, but everything else has been $9.99 or less.

Was able to finish up with Underworld Awakening 3D Steelbook and Descendants for $1.99. I was hoping for one more week so I could pick up Road Trip Exclusive.

It's a little off topic from this thread but I figured I could get the fastest answer here. I know Best Buy does price adjustments if something is on sale within a certain window for a cheaper price. Does anyone know what that window is? 1 or two weeks or 30 days?

I know this applies to returns, and in June it increases to 60 days for Premiere Silver members.

Does the return period apply to price matches too?

It is for price matches and returns both. This is in contrast to Target's stupid policy of 14 day price match and 90 day return. What is the point Target?? If it is after 14 days I am just going to return the product and keep the cheaper one. Would be WAY easier for them to just price the same length as the return policy so they don't get stuck with additional product, possibly already opened.

Plus Target sometimes opens the discs and marks them as returns. I once bought something on sale and walked from the register to customer service to return it under an old receipt. They opened 2 of the 3 DVD sets to inspect them and make sure I wasn't rewrapping. I just watched them and laughed.

After seeing all this buy buy buy, i've wondered how large your collection is.. Care to post some pictures?

Also how many titles deep is your unwatched pile?

Ghostbusters___________________4.99
Batman Begins _________________4.99
Pulp Fiction ____________________4.99
An American Werewolf in London___ 4.99

I suppose, but some folks, based on what they posted, didn't care how much the disc cost as long as they were still saving $5 off a Blu Ray. Even if the disc would have cost $9.99 after the coupon savings, I was more hesitant about buying one of those than ones that would have only cost me $4.99. I was trying to get the most bang for my buck. I'd rather get two discs for $10 rather than just one.
