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

Post your deals and finds below!

$5 Upgrade & Save Coupon:

Bring in your original DVD (no burned copies accepted) with the original case to Customer Service and receive a $5-off coupon valid on any Blu-ray movie, TV or music priced $9.99 and up. See a Customer Specialist or visit BestBuy.com/upgradeandsave for more details about the Upgrade & Save promotion. Limit 5 coupons per trip. A recycling receipt must accompany the coupon at time of redemption. Once you have received your coupon, if you do not find a Blu-ray, TV or music, you are unable to get your turned-in DVD back. Not valid with any other discount or package. Limit one coupon per each Blu-ray purchase. Markdown taken from original price. Your original DVD must have been commercially packed and with the original case. Adult content DVDs not accepted. Not valid with any other offer. Valid on in-stock Blu-ray movies, TV or music only. No cash value. Offer valid 7/15/12 - 8/11/12.
FYI, the mobile phone upgrade check portion of the promotion ended on 7/21. For reference only:
Also, you can get a $5 coupon toward any Blu-ray movie, TV or music $9.99 and up when you check for upgrade eligibility on your mobile phone with a Mobile Phone Specialist. See a Mobile Phone Specialist for upgrade check. You do not need to be eligible for a phone upgrade in order to receive $5 coupon. Markdowns taken from original or promotional price. Limit one upgrade check/coupon per person. Not valid with any other discount or package or on No-Contract phones. Valid only on in-stock Blu-ray movies, TV or music available in store. Limit one coupon per each Blu-ray purchase. Offer not available in Best Buy Mobile specialty stores or on BestBuy.com. Best Buy employees ineligible for upgrade check coupon. No cash value.
Frequently asked questions:

Q. What kind of DVD's can I trade in for a coupon?
A. Any commercial DVD (excluding porn) with the original DVD disc and original artwork/case (with UPC code) can be traded in for a coupon. Though the promotion is technically for trading in DVD's, most people have been successful in being allowed to trade in HD DVD's and even Blu-rays.

Q. Do I have to use the coupon on the same title as the DVD that I traded in?
A. No! You can use the coupon for ANY Blu-ray title $9.99 or over, including music and TV Blu-rays.

Q. Can I use the coupon on Blu-ray titles that are on sale?
A. Although the terms of the promotion say "Markdown taken from original price", this has never actually been enforced by the Best Buy point of sale system. You should be able to use this coupon on any Blu-ray title, and the $5 discount will come off of the price that rings up at the register (sale or not). In fact, in the weekly ad circulars, Best Buy always shows examples of using the $5 coupon on sale titles (including that week's new releases).

Q. Do I have to use the upgrade coupon immediately?
A. No, if you can't find anything you want right now, you can simply hold onto it and use your coupon later. The coupon is good until 8/11/12.

Q. Can I combine it with a manufacturer's coupon?
A. Yes, you should be able to, as you have one Best Buy coupon and one manufacturer's coupon, and the manufacturer's coupon is considered a cash tender. Just make sure you give the Upgrade coupon (and any Reward Zone certificates) to the cashier first, and the manufacturer's coupon last, as this is the order in which the BB Point of Sale system has to process them.

I still have a coupon left from the April/May sale. I wonder if they'll take it.

Awesome, there's been a ton of releases lately that I've held off on due to price. Hopefully they are on sale during this period.

Beavis and Butthead Volume 4 is $9.99 right now. I checked the tag at the store but it didn't have an end date for that price, hope it stays.

Thinking about trying this for the first time, now all my wants need to stay the same price. Can the coupons be used online too?

If your store gives you one coupon for each trade-in, I'd slip it into the stack and redeem it... They'll probably just scan the top one multiple times...

I have a $40 RZ cert I've been trying to find something to use it on. Hopefully I can find enough titles I want.

It's YMMV, per the actual promotion NO they should not take them since they are not DVD's. But lots of people have had success trading them in.
