Monterey Pop: Criterion Collection - $0.99 @ Best Buy B&M
 
This was first posted in a thread over on the DVD bargains board. I saw it this morning and decided to check my local store as well. I came over at lunch and had them scan it, and sure enough it worked. It was NOT in a clearance section or bin. It was right on the shelf where it normally would be, with the normal sticker price of $49.99.

Just a heads up!

I should also mention that if you want to check the price yourself without having them scan it, you can do so in store. You know those computers customers can use to look stuff up?

Go up to that and just do a search for it - it should show the $0.99 price on there.

For example, Dolly Parton's Backwoods Barbie CD is also $0.99. In store, on those computers, it comes up there at the discount price. However, if you look it up on the normal BestBuy.com, it shows up at $4.99 like this:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Backwood...rbie&lp=1&cp=1

If you want to risk an employee picking it up, when you call and ask them to confirm the price, it should show up at $0.99 for them, as long as they actually look it up instead of being lazy and just going by the sticker price.

Here are a couple of pictures - the first one is of the BD with my receipt and the second one is a shot of the in store computer where customers can look stuff up. It shows in their system at $0.99, but also note that the complete collection is not discounted. The price on BestBuy.com is not discounted, so you can not go by that. If your local store says unavailable, go in to make sure they don't have it anyway. I believe their system says when they get down to one or two in stock.

Any St. Louisans hit up the Brentwood Best Buy for this yet? I'm crossing my fingers I can find this deal there tonight...

Well, went to the closest and they were out, as was every store in about 75 mile radius.

You can apparently get on the computer in store and order them there. Who knows if they would actually ship, but still. Here is a picture from a nut from the Blu-ray.com forum...

I didnt think of that.

I think this may be one of thier new policies, not in stock, you can order in store.

Re: Monterey Pop: Criterion Collection - $0.99 @ Best Buy B&M
 
Tried to find that today, but no luck. I can't believe they're selling it at that price! I did at least find a great compilation CD called These Ghoulish Things for 99 cents. You won't find it new for less than ten bucks.

Not a new policy. You could always use an in-store kiosk to place an order with the in-store price and have it shipped to your home(just make sure that you sign out of your account before leaving the kiosk).

Snuck over to my BB at 8:50. Had none in stock, but was able to order it at .99 through their computers. Even told a BB employee and he snared one after exclaiming,"Holy S*&^!" when he saw the price. :-)

I found Monterey Pop and Jimi Plays Monterey & Shake! Otis At Monterey on Blu-ray for 99 cents apiece. Unbeatable deal.

Not exactly, this is not available to order from the site. you have to get a rep to order it even in store.

I ended up finding a copy by my house, but the BB barcode came up as a $499.99 Blackberry for some reason. After the clerk did a double-take and voided that, he did another double-take when it rang up at $.99. Had I known that the second release was in there, I would've dug a bit more. Maybe I'll try my luck at the one by work tomorrow.

Looks like they've fixed the bug on the website. It's showing $44.99 now.

It was always $44.99 on their website. It is the copies that are in store that are ringing up $0.99.

I was able to order Jimi Plays Monterey at the kiosk this morning sans the assistance of a store employee.:shrug:

Alas, Monterey Pop is no longer available for shipping.

Confirmed dead for ordering in store. If you can find a copy in store price is still. 99. But could not place an order via in store computer even with an employee.

Tommy Bunz 11-06-12 01:21 PM

Re: Monterey Pop: Criterion Collection - $0.99 @ Best Buy B&M
 
yeah i was there when the place opened this morning and couldn't find any copies or order via the kiosk.
picked up the 3 stooges collection for $40 so the trip wouldn't be a waste.

Re: Monterey Pop: Criterion Collection - $0.99 @ Best Buy B&M
 
I'm very glad to see some of you guys being able to get in on this!

I went back to the store today and have a little bit more to report. I tried searching for the other release (which I wasn't aware of yesterday) Jimi Plays and the in store kiosk acted very weird. First it showed up at the normal BestBuy.com price of $25, and the other Monterey also showed up at the higher price. I considered it dead, and started to leave as I browesed the asiles.

Before I left, I decided to check the system one more time. This time, sure enough, both of them popped up at the $0.99 price, so who knows what the deal was there. While you can no longer order Monterey on the kiosk to be shipped to you, you can only search for in store pickup, I was indeed able to order Jimi Plays for $0.99. I got that, shipped, for just $1.05. Insane.

I went back to see if the prices would change again, and no, they remained $0.99 no matter what I did, so that's good. I decided to try to order more to possibly help people out, and noticed you could only change the quantity to 3. That was fine, I went in and placed four orders of a quantity of 3 each time, so we'll see.

Hopefully they'll at least ship the one order for one that I placed first.

If anyone knows any other BD titles for $0.99 or even $4.99, please let me know. I'd buy just about any of them at those prices.

So no one's tried PM'ing the B&N 50% off sale to get this for 50 cents?

BambooLounge 11-07-12 09:24 AM

Re: Monterey Pop: Criterion Collection - $0.99 @ Best Buy B&M
 
Has anyone tried bringing one to B&N and getting a no receipt exchange for a same priced (at B&N) title?

Re: Monterey Pop: Criterion Collection - $0.99 @ Best Buy B&M
 
I believe this pricing error has been corrected already.

I went to a Best Buy in NYC yesterday morning & I pulled it up on their computer, which reflected the 99 cent price. I was able to add it to my cart (still at 99 cents), but that item wasn't available to ship... and there was NO store in a 75 mile radius that had it in stock, according to the site. I even checked stores around Philly & Baltimore, where I have other family members living. Nothing. So without the item able to ship, the only chance you had was finding a store that had it in stock... which didn't seem to exist.

I left the computer to browse for something else but went back a short time later to try one other thing... this was like 15 minutes later. The Monterey Pop Blu-ray still showed up on the Best Buy computer for 99 cents, but when I tried adding it to my cart this time it showed up as $50. So the problem was most likely being fixed in the Best Buy system the exact time I was there-- this was a little before noon yesterday.

So anyway, long story short, this "deal" now seems to be DEAD. You're lucky if you were able to locate a copy & take advantage of it!

Re: Monterey Pop: Criterion Collection - $0.99 @ Best Buy B&M
 
The price goes back and forth like that. Keep checking it and it'll go back to the $0.99 price. It happened to me yesterday.

Brent L 11-07-12 05:37 PM

Re: Monterey Pop: Criterion Collection - $0.99 @ Best Buy B&M
 
I checked tonight and it does indeed look to be dead. No matter what I did the price was at the normal higher price for both Criterions and also other BDs that were reported at discounts as well. Not only that but Jimi Plays is no longer even available for order.

eBay probably has a few hundred copies for $150 a piece if anyone's wonderin'.

Nothing at the Marin City, CA store.

Nice deal for those who got it. Personally I got the complete Monterey Pop for $11 during a previous BN sale when they let you use multiple coupons (used 4 :)), but now some people got these for $1.98. Oh well.

Brent L 11-08-12 12:49 PM

Re: Monterey Pop: Criterion Collection - $0.99 @ Best Buy B&M
 
I just went back to look for the other BDs listed here and the system wasn't working hardly at all. When I tried to search for anything, or click on any links, it was as if the page was trying to load twice, two different pages at the same time, but on top of one another. I tried over and over, got employees to try, had them restart the system from the very start, and they finally decided it was a store wide problem since all of their computers were doing the same thing. It was just a huge glitch, and you couldn't navigate any screens at all hardly.

In the middle of it I did finally get it to search for Shine a Light, and I saw it for the $0.99 price, but because of the glitching I couldn't place any sort of order. I may go back after work tonight to see if it got fixed.

You can't order Jimmi Plays at all anymore, and while you can order Monterey you can only do in store pick up, and it shows unavailable at every store within 100 miles. That doesn't mean that some of those stores can't have it, but you can't place any order for it through the system since they show up as unavailable. I was able to see that they were back at $0.99 though, when they weren't yesterday. How wacky.

My experience is that this deal has been posted to several different sites and copies are exceedingly rare in stores now, unless it was misfiled where it shouldn't have been placed.

In store only. Bummer for people like me whose Best Buy removed the customer kiosks.
