Aight just got back from best buy. My god the cashier was giving me a hard time, he wanted to charge me 29.99 on mission impossible ghost protocol, I kept telling him its 9.99 i even took him to the section where they had them, the yellow sale ticket showed on sale 9.99 and he still wanted to charge me the 29.99 he kept telling me oh that's a mistake its not 9.99. another cashier came and scanned it and it showed up 9.99.

I picked up

spawn directors cut 9.99
mission impossible Ghost Protocol 9.99
Blade 2 9.99

with the trade and save everything came out to a sexy total of 16.17

Same BS at mine. It scanned 29.99.. then the ap person took me to where it was, and it was labled 9.99.. so they called a manager for override, then the manager and ap person went to the shelf and came back and gave me the 9.99 price.

Apparently the BB exclusive is not part of the 9.99 deal.. although they had about 100 of them. They found a non BB exclusive and gave me that one, but not sure where they found it. Probably mixed in. dickholes.


Then when I went to finalize the purchase it was still over 45 and I said it should be around 25$. She only scanned the coupon once even though my receipt had 5 trade in's. Then she argued that I only was given one coupon. The AP person said to call over the manager again.


oh well.. in the end i got

MI4 - combo
2- Batman begins steels
2- the Dark knight steels.

for 26 after tax

I forget, do they need a UPC for them to scan? It'd be nice to trade in the three Indy films from the box set...

The Ghost Protocol that is on sale for $9.99 is not the BB exclusive with the additional bonus features; it's the standard combo pack that is available everywhere.

Perhaps some oblivious clerks are mixing the two together on the displays with the $9.99 shelf tag.

I suppose some people will get the exclusive one for $5 by arguing that's the one by the shelf tag, but technically they can legitimately deny it.

Of course, if the standard version is in fact not ringing up at $9.99, then they need to get their computers straightened out.

They scanned nothing for me. Just opened the cases to see if the DVDs were inside and handed me the coupons.

Got my wife to begrudgingly come with me so I could get 10 today. Is it bad that the guy at the customer service desk recognized me and mentioned that he always sees me there when the upgrade and trade starts

Here's what I got (all $4.99 after coupon)
Blade
Blade 2
Blade Trinity
Gremlins 2
Final Destination 5
MI Ghost Protocol
Sherlock Holmes
Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe
Spawn
Red Riding Hood (for my wife since she came with me :P)

I had $15 in RZ certs so it was $35 + tax.

FYI, this was at the York, PA store, Blade, Blade 3 and Sherlock Holmes were all in a DKR movie cash display back by the music and Blade 2, Gremlins 2, Red Riding Hood and Spawn were in a cardboard WB display towards the front of the store.

plenty of those Batman BD steelbooks to worry about their exclusivity - also, would have picked them up if they had free tickets to TKDR. Just buck 5 didn't warrant double dipping. Came away with:
1. MI4
2. Outlaw Josey Wales
3. Unforgiven
4. Blade II
5. 9 1/2 weeks

Quite a few titles bumped up by $5 since yesterday's check

Re: Best Buy Upgrade & Save, $5 Off Blu-ray titles, Jul 15 - Aug 11, 2012

Got back from my 2nd trip today and since it was busier now it took them more time to get managers over for the price match approvals. Poor cashier was pretty flustered with it all and had 3 different managers come over at different points during the transaction. Final one over said that Price Match and Trade N Save are 2 separate promotions and that is why it wouldn't work, but since another manager had already told me it was ok that he was making an exception. Walked out with:

A Night to Remember - $14.99
Harold and Maude - $14.99
The Gold Rush - $14.991
The Last Temptation of Christ - $14.99
The Fox and the Hound - $12.99


While there are a few guilty pleasure/"good for $5" titles left, I'm going to pass since the Criterions run up the totals pretty fast. While stop in for Mean Streets and maybe American Graffiti, but no titles simply b/c they're $5 for me this time around (Mortal Kombat, Flash Gordon, etc).

And for anyone wondering, they took 3 Previously Owned Blockbuster Blu-rays (in rental cases) without blinking. Another reason, I'm holding off buying $5 titles just because seeing as I traded in 3 blu-rays I bought months ago just because they were cheap.

Has anyone seen or bought Blade II BD at BB? I thought people said they had seen it.
There was only one other person buying BDs when I got there on Sunday morning. I guess the general public doesn't really have the heads up we do and don't plan with a stack of DVDs to trade first thing Sunday morning. I was able to get 7 transactions done (yes, 35 BDs) in one trip since I had talked to the CS manager Saturday and said that this BB was a little out of the way. Not all of them were for me, I did buy some for a friend.

Actually that's what I meant. I guess I will return them and then go shopping and pick them up later. They know me pretty well.
