Re: Apparently U&S is back on October 7th

So during my visit, at checkout, my coupon that I didn't use from the last U&S was not taking the discount off the total. A manager had to be called in. This was my first time using a coupon held over from the previous sales event and will be my last, even if I have to buy movies I don't really want. I bought for $4.99 each:

Predator
Predator 2
9
I Spit On You Grave double pack - this was a blind buy & I'm hoping I like both movies

But I am at a crossroads on a certain set of movies and I'm asking for advice. I was going to purchase Nightmare on Elm Street 2 & 3 double pack when I saw a collector edition of the first 7 movies on Blu for $44.99. Here's the problem; I've never seen any of the films past #2 except for Freddy vs. Jason. After some checking, I have some options:

1) I could buy the blu's of 1, 2, 3 and F vs J for $19.97 (after two $5 U&S coupons) makes them 4.99 per disc.

2) I could buy the collector's 7- disc blu and F vs J for 46.98 (after two $5 U&S coupons) makes them $5.87 per disc.

3) I can buy 2 dvd 4-packs with all 8 movies for $17.98 (no coupons) makes them $2.25 each.

I just don't know about the movies 3 - 7 and if they are worth the extra $$ on Blu. I know I like the first movie and I enjoyed the last, it's just all the ones in between that I'm concerned with. I don't mind spending more for a good series, but if several of the movies stink I could live with all of them on dvd.

3 & 7 are the best in the series, IMHO. But this is coming from someone who thought Freddy vs Jason blew.

Re: Apparently U&S is back on October 7th

Picked up:

Road to Perdition $5
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 3D $14.99 (not the BB Exclusive one)

GR posed a problem, as it did not take it the coupon of automatically. I don't know if it was because it was on sale or if it is because it is part of the 2-Day Columbus Day sale. They manually changed the price to $14.99 for me.

Not sure, but the coupons do say the discount will be taken off original or promotional price.

Seeing as how the coupon has an expiration date, I don't even know why it would have needed to get to the point of bringing in a manager. The most important thing when doing the u&s program, make sure you have your movies you want to buy before trading in dvd's. These coupons DO NOT carry over to the next sale.

Re: Apparently U&S is back on October 7th

Went yesterday and picked up:

Margin Call (been waiting for a good deal on this one)
40 Year Old Virgin
Red Dawn

All $4.99 after discount. I was able to sale the Digital Copy code from Virgin for $3 on another site. So, a little more than $2 for that one. If I had any of the Universal Coupons left if would have been even cheaper.

I didn't see a need to look for an expiration date, as I've read numerous posts on this site that the coupons would be good from one sale event to the next. I didn't ask for a manager, the cashier did it all on her own. As I always do, I stop by customer service to trade in my movies first because if one store doesn't have what I want, another store might. In this instance, I didn't go to another store before the sale was over. Guess I'm just fortunate that the manager took the coupons anyways. When I take in movies again tomorrow, I will look to see if there truly is an expiration date.

Just a heads up the blu-ray of Kung Fu Hustle is the old edited version. The only unedited version released in the US is the "Ass Kickin Edition" on dvd.

Would love to see these posts, been doing the u&s deals every time Best Buy has had them and not seen anyone say the coupons from previous u&s sales are fine to use. Perhaps someone might have stated having the "luck" that you had of them accepting an expired coupon, but not people stating they are good from one sale to the next. They clearly state the duration of the program and the expiration date.

And yes you were fortunate the manager took them, they definitely were in their right to shoot you down.

you will be really glad you returned 'BS Dracula' - its video quality is abysmal. I recently got one and am regretting it.

And I would LOVE to have that store as a place to go to if it was true.

Re: Apparently U&S is back on October 7th

Are people finding 10 Things I Hate About You BD at their BB stores? Of the handful of BDs I decided to get with U&S, for some reason that one online does not show as available in stores.

There are no special promos on Jaws BD (which people keep mentioning), right? It's $14.99 after U&S which is still too expensive for me.

Just checking, were people able to get the U&S + $3 Universal to work on ET? My store doesn't open for another 75 minutes.

Re: Apparently U&S is back on October 7th

IDK if this has been posted, but I stopped by the dollar tree before going to BB. They had 2 packs of Bewitched for $1. The Kidman film, and the first 3 episodes of the series. Both with bar codes, both traded no problem.

Re: Apparently U&S is back on October 7th

Glad to report my purchase went effortlessly. Traded in 2 dvd's, picked up Prometheus 3D and ET Digibook (which there were plenty of), both rung up correctly and also took off $3 for the Universal coupon and was out within 10 minutes. Good job Best Buy!
