"Jaws" BD+DVD+Dig copy $9.99 at Best Buy B&M

I was perusing the aisles and noticed that there were two prices on the Jaws blu-ray, $19.99 and $9.99 for what appears to be the identical contents. The $9.99 has a different SKU 6906361 and slightly different barcode (0 25192 16196 4) which appears to be a sticker over the old barcode showing through the cardboard sleeve. These numbers were not in the store's self-service computer as of Sunday, and the only thing that came up in a search was Jaws $19.99. So I don't know if this is an unadvertised special or a new price. There was no sale tag on the shelf, but I didn't notice the checkout person having to do any manual adjustment. So YMMV, but it sure doesn't look like an unintentional error.

Found this yesterday in a Michigan store. Same situation, no hassles.

Was one of the SKU's for the Jaws digibook perhaps? I'd love to get that for 9.99, but I doubt that one will be labeled that way... And yes, it can still be found in stores here...

Picked up the non-Digibook for $9.99 at the San Rafael, CA store.

It was in their sales display with the correct price marked.

The universal coupon wouldn't scan and the cashier was content to just forget about it, but I pushed on it a little (just noted it was for the right product and not expired) and a manager instructed him to manually adjust the price.

So I walked out with this for $7.xx. As previously posted, this should not be ymmv since the discs are marked $9.99. At least, the copy I got had that sticker price while others still had old $19.99 stickers.

Picked this one up from Best Buy for $6.99 out the door after a Universal Coupon.

Also noticed they didn't have any copies of E.T. except for the Digibook. I asked at the customer service desk if they would price match the Digibook to Amazon's $12.99 price for the regular edition. They did and took my second Universal $3 off coupon on it. $9.99 out the door.

Also picked up the 3-movie set of Austin Powers movies for $9.99. Should make for something fun to watch Thanksgiving day (and keep my average per movie low :P ).

Did you dig around? They have versions at both prices simultaneously, but they don't seem to be drawing any attention to it.

FYI - Jaws BD is $9.99 at Costco as well. I picked it up there earlier this week.

You can't use it at Best Buy either if it's not in stock.

Just giving people another option if they can't find it at Best Buy.

I guess, I've managed to get the best deal; paid $5.99. They had the dvd price tag on the shelf with these and no dvds, so because the combo does say it contains a dvd, they OKed the price.

Re: "Jaws" BD+DVD+Dig copy $9.99 at Best Buy B&M

Just curious... where do these Universal 100 coupons come from? Can I still get one?

Re: "Jaws" BD+DVD+Dig copy $9.99 at Best Buy B&M

Tried this yesterday at my local BB and it didn't work. I have a RZ coupon to use and figured I would use it on this. It rang up 19.99 for me.


Edited to note:

My store only had 4 (non digi-book) copies that all had 19.99 stickers on them, but they fit the description given in the first post (although, I'm guessing that the barcode probably didn't match).

You should look again because you might have missed it. I looked the other day at my local store and only saw the $19.99 copies. However I went back today and found the $9.99 copies in another area separate from the other ones that I missed on the previous visit. They were clearly labeled and priced for $9.99 even though they looked like the more expensive copies in the other area of the store. Was able to get one for $4.99 with a mystery reward cert Best Buy sent me yesterday. Also wish I could have printed out more of the $3 Universal coupons, or else I could of had it for a $1.99. Unfortunately I ran out of computers for printing the Universal coupons.

I looked around and didn't see copies in any other places. I'll probably go back tomorrow anyway, though, and check again, because I'll be close to my local BB.
