No problem! Just passing along information I found elsewhere

After you mentioned that, I checked my local stores through the website. The Movies/TV Section of the Clearance is gone from all my local stores. Very strange!

Re: Best Buy Clearance/Open-Box Items Thread

snooze you lose I suppose. I checked a store near my office yesterday and they had the Hobbit and some other movies on clearance. Just checked again right now and not a single movie is listed on clearance (the section doesn't even appear in the category list now).

Guess the NYC DVDTalkers cleaned it out (including the Dude Abides tee and SW tee shirts they had listed).

Actually, I just checked Lansing, MI locations just to see and none of those stores are showing the movie clearance category either. Are people still seeing the Movie category on the Clearance page today?

I didn't want to take the chance so I used Store Pickup for the Dark Knight Rises Steelbook.

I've been waiting to get this at a decent price -- I got the other Batman Steelbooks for ten bucks each too -- so thanks for the heads-up asianxcore.

Re: Best Buy Clearance/Open-Box Items Thread

I appreciate the OP for pointing this out. Some of my stores have some decent pickups.

One location, which is about 20 miles away, had the Transformers Matrix of Leadership boxset discounted to $29.99. I couldn't get there until late last night, but I drove out after work and when I couldn't find it on the shelf the employee told me some guy came and bought all of them bragging about flipping them on eBay.

Obnoxious resellers ruin a lot of these good deals. Oh well. I'll keep my eyes peeled.

I think they just took that section offline for some reason. I stopped into a BB this morning which had a Hobbit exclusive on the web yesterday, and though it was marked 29.99, it still rung up at 9.99

Re: Best Buy Clearance/Open-Box Items Thread

Last night I put 2 blu's in my cart from the clearance link for store pickup, at checkout they disappeared from the cart saying they sold out. This was around 12:30am CT. This moring I looked up their Hobbit exclusive which was $9.99 online yesterday and today it lists as $35.00. So, if there is a price issue at a store it seems you'd have no way to prove the $9.99 price anymore. Glad it worked out for you on the Hobbit, but I have some doubts the prices are still in effect today at every location. I'll check this forum later for more proof and go to a store later.

Re: Best Buy Clearance/Open-Box Items Thread

I just got back from a local BB and picked up the Dark Knight Rises steelbook. It rang up $9.99 so I think the prices are still there, it just their clearance list went funky or something.

One of my Best Buys had a shit ton of these steelbooks. They must have over-ordered. I was waiting on the rumored longer cut but this made me pull the trigger.

I was going to buy that Terminator Salvation head t go with my Batman, Spider-Man & Iron Man heads but it just looked kinda goofy and since I already have the movie with the Anthology, I passed on it. Supposedly one of my BBs had a copy of the A Christmas Story boxset but I couldn't find it anywhere.

Re: Best Buy Clearance/Open-Box Items Thread

I saw the list was funky last night too. But, the movies are still listed you just have to go through all of them to see it. I saw the Dark Knight one with the funny Joker heads still online.

Picked up Rocky Balboa BR for 1.99 for my brother. It was the last copy on the shelves (wouldn't let me reserve it). Thanks OP for sharing! I will be using this frequently!

I do have a warning-I was looking at one of the Wii games on clearance-it looks good but when you compare what other stores are selling it for, it's still $10 more. So, make sure you check before going-ooh sale!

^ That sucks! I picked up the IMAX Hubble today during lunch. They had a ton of TDKR steelbooks, but I had already bought it at full price when it came out. ARGH! Would have loved to get a Hobbit BD for 9.99 but none of my stores showed that one...

There were over 15 titles at my local store the moment this was first posted. Today, it's all gone. :P

That makes sense. From my many years previously working Retail, that's what normally would happened to them.

Hopefully more folks will be able to get in on some of these deals before every store starts doing the same.

Re: Best Buy Clearance/Open-Box Items Thread

I checked bluray.com's forum before I went to a store today. Many folks there reported the clearance as still active before folks here reported any news. So I ventured out to 3 stores, and walked away with a Harry Potter for $5 and the Hobbit for $10. I did ok, aside from gas, but missed out on a few good ones, How to Train a Dragon, more Potter's. I'm not knocking this forum, I like it here, but there is quite a bit more activity at that other forum. Which has been said before by others here.

If you're married to it, ditch the slipcover. No need to be safe anymore.
