I would imagine that he picked it up a week ago yesterday when it was only $9.99.

I was in BBY that day too. Never even noticed the sale until after they closed. Wish I had known beforehand.

Don't know which version you're thinking about, but I just bought the Bourne Trilogy last month at Fry's (the set that has all 3 movies in 3 individual cases in 1 a large slip-box) and I had no problem playing all 3 in my PS3.

Was at target yesterday and bought all 3 individually. Returned them before I opened because I read a reviewer on Amazon saying the flip disc wasn't reading on his ps3. Maybe Sony came out with an update since then. Maybe the trilogy discs are different.

The box set contains three BDs... The individual releases are BD/DVD flippers.

Don't know if it has already been said, but MI4 BB Exclusive is 9.99 again online, so likely 9.99 in-store as well, otherwise most stores will PM the website...

I believe it's $9.99 until the end of August.

Has anyone participated in this?

Picked up yesterday:

Human Planet - $14.99
The Green Hornet - $4.99
Diary of a Wimpy Kid - $4.99

Picked up today:

9 - $4.99
The Boondock Saints (w/slip) - $4.99
The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day - $4.99

That'll likely be it for me until next week.

Certainly a possibility.

I might be done as well. Unless there are some new additions to the $10 section or the last U&S ad is good I'll probably stop. I still have 6 coupons left though. I guess they'll carry over to the next U&S month.

Picked up the Contagion combo pack for $7.99. Might go back and grab Scream 4 for $7.99 as well.

I doubt they'd carry over. They have expiration dates, though who knows if they actually check.

I have 2 coupons still. Hope 21 Jump Street hits at least $12.99 in the last week. Otherwise I'll get two cheap $5 movies and trade them to Amazon for a gift card.

Coupons will expire 8-11-12 from my understanding, so any coupons you get now need to be used by then.

Picked up two items on Saturday: Coraline & Das Boot. The new True Grit was too tempting to pass up at 7.98. The clerk nicely let me hang onto my two coupons, in case I wanted another go before the deadline.

This program must be pretty popular now because the last 2 stores I went to (2 hours drive from each other) both were using xeroxed copies of the coupons.

+1 -- and it's photocopies of photocopies since you can't even see individual barcode lines so it won't scan. They had to manually write the SKU on the coupon.

Price matched Frys for CHINATOWN and then got a courteous override for the trade in discount so $7.99 + tax.

A far cry from the night before at a different store where a very nerdy blue shirt declined the override and refused to call the manager. Then he proclaimed that he himself was the manager which I later found out was a lie. We told him that on the previous day the manager, whom we named, had done the override cheerfully and without issue. The nerd said: "Well it's not going to happen now" and turned his back on me and walked away. I called him a huge effing nerd and left that store for the last time. I can understand him not doing the override and I have no sense of entitlement but for him to be so emphatically discourteous while I was being polite, there's no excuse for it.
