Too bad we can't get the coupon from the store and then order the titles online with the coupon codes.

I decided to hold on to the 3 DVDs I was going to pull from my collection and instead drop into the Dollar Tree across the street from Best Buy. Picked up 5 DVDs for $1 each and traded them in.

Wound up getting The Incredible Hulk, Excalibur, and Conan the Destroyer. Conan the Barbarian was already sold out (I was there maybe 20-30 minutes after opening) and I put back MI: III when I realized I could get all three for $14.99 if I buy the collection (also out of stock).

I'm hoping Conan comes back in stock during the week, but if not, there is another Best Buy about 25 minutes away that is showing it as in stock right now (so, if it is still there mid-week, I'll run over).

Wish we still got the circulars 2 weeks in advanced. Would love to know if I should grab some more coupons to hold on to for the next couple of weeks.

The versions of Gladiator and SPR that are on sale have a red cover in the picture and aren't available at all stores when I checked on the website. The blue cover versions are showing up regular price.

I got these:

$5
Caddyshack
Nightmare on Elm Street
Wayne's World
$8
The Big Lebowski
Evil Dead 2

I almost grabbed Rubber, but I couldn't make it past the first 5 minutes on Netflix. I don't think I even made it to the parts with the tire. That "for no reason" speech at the beginning was brutal. Anyway, just a heads up it anyone is interested in that title, it's $5 after coupon.

I showed up at 11:05 today, and they had to have a 5-person conference to figure out how to do this. I wrote down 35 $9.99 titles to look for, and they had 8. Still, I'll be back. Has anybody seen The Good, The Bad, The Weird? Worth picking up?

I wasn't a fan and I really enjoyed the director's other films and most South Korean films I've seen. It's not bad just mediocre and I was bored through most of it.

Only took a couple of movies to trade in and wound up with The Ring BBY Exclusive($9.99) and Forrest Gump($4.99) w/ red slipcover. Don't know if it has been mentioned, but if anyone is looking for the red slipcover titles, try the endcaps. That is where they were located in my local store.

Stopped by a local Dollar Tree to grab some more $1 titles today, but could not find any movies for sale. Guess I will try another one later this week.

I only found eight movies from two stores to trade-in. I was tempted to get Supernatural seasons, but decided to wait for the eventual $99.99 lightning deal over at Amazon for the complete series whenever that show wraps up. But it is very tempting.

I got (all $4.99 after trade-in, except where noted):

American Gangster
Big Lebowski
($9.99)
Bram Stokerís Dracula
Collateral
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
Serenity
Snatch
Van Helsing


There are still a lot of supposed $9.99 titles I'd like to get for $4.99, but neither store had them in stock, so I might try a couple more stores later this week.

Boy, if Amazon matched this offer, I'd be placing A LOT of preorders.

Not a great selection, but I got:
Count of Monte Cristo $10
Uncle Buck $5

Saving one coupon for Haywire, leaves me with one left.

the ones with the Red cover have a newer UPC that's been stickered on the original. Yup, the ones without it ring at a different price although its the exact same version without the red cover.

I loved it. Unlike the director's other pics, this one is pretty much just a joyride and probably has a lot more repeat value than some of the more seriously toned films of South Korea.

After waiting a good 20 minutes for them to find the coupons I picked up:

Conan the Barbarian
Conan the Destroyer
The Big Lebowski
Kill the Irishman
The Boondock Saints (w/ slipcover)

Saw a few more I'll probably pickup later in the week, although roughly 75% of the stuff I want isn't currently in stock.

To Catch a Thief
Psycho
Midnight in Paris
Once Upon a Time in the West

I wanted To Catch a Thief, but my store doesn't have it. I checked online and none of the many stores near me seem to have it.

Traded in 2 movies, but only picked up The Big Lebowski LE Book. No brainer at $7.99, especially since it came with the $10 Fandango cash to see The Five-Year Engagement.
