Best Buy Clearance/Open-Box Items Thread

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....DCMP=rdr102872

That page allows you to search your local store to see what is on Clearance or Open Box. Different stores have different items they have on Clearance or Open Box.

Picked up The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Best Buy Exclusive) new for $9.99 today!

Good find, thanks! No Hobbit by me (checked 3 stores), but there are some potential bargains...

No credit to me, I found this over at Blu-Ray.com Forums and thought I'd share it here.

There are a LOT of items being reported over there, but every store is different. YMMV!

Happy hunting everyone!

I had one of those available as well. A little bummed that I just ordered the non-steelbook version for the same price at Amazon. I don't think I want the SB enough to cancel/re-order.

Re: Best Buy Clearance/Open-Box Items Thread

went to 3 BBYs today and picked up:
Astro Boy Dvd Mini Set 1 (5 Disc) - B&W - DVD 9.99
Hubble IMAX BD/DVD (NO 3D) - 4.99

Astro Boy and Hubble would not let me check out at any of the 5 I tried, but I found them at the last place I visited.

Sherlock GOS SB - 9.99
Dark Knight Rises SB - 9.99 (1 loc. in Houston had 13 of them. Most in perfect cond)
Supernatural S4 BD BBY exclusive w/ Lent. cover - 14.99 (cellophane was beat up as hell)
watchmen rosach DVD Mask - 9.99

Didn't pick up this one, but it was an OK price.
Watchmen - Tales of the Black Freighter DVD (in limited edition SteelBook case) (2009) - 9.99

I can "reserve" a $89 garbage disposal (clearanced)...but I can't reserve/purchase a clearanced $4.99 Blu-ray for picking up at my local store.

Interesting.

They both have the same content right?

Glad to see people are finding things they like!

FYI, Gangster Squad is the BB exclusive version. Pay attention to the SKU's, but most of the items listed have multiple SKU's and only a specific SKU is clearanced. Also found True Blood S3 BD, but the BD only version is $19.99, not the combo pack.

Re: Best Buy Clearance/Open-Box Items Thread

I upgraded my Best Buy app, and there is now an option to search the Clearance and Open Box items. That could be handy if you are in a store, and don't remember or know what that particular store has...
However, I can't get my RZ account to load in the new app. I keep getting Connection Error. So you may not want to upgrade your app if you like to access RZ through it...

Re: Best Buy Clearance/Open-Box Items Thread

When you go to your Best Buy, do you find these items just in their regular places or are they in a special box or clearance area?

My local store has a lot of the same stuff others have mentioned. I did check a couple of other stores in the area, albeit a longer drive. One store has the first season of Game of Thrones that was discontinued for 17.99.

Rocky Balboa has been available for $1.99 at every local store I have checked. I have also seen True Blood: Season 3 (Blu-Ray) for $19.99 at a couple of stores.

At least with the two stores I went to locally, they were all just in section. No special section at all.

The only reason why I didn't post a list of things and their prices, is because every store will have similar, as well as different things on Clearance.

A store about 30+ minutes away has the Game Of Thrones: Season 1 (Exclusive) Blu-Ray on Clearance, but the 2 stores within a 15 minute drive to me do not.

I can't find anything in that new app. It lists 512 deals near my ZIP code (which it recognizes wrongly of course) and then click on the deals, you are served a 'Page not found'. Happens for any store I select. Pathetic !!

Wow, looking through my local store's items, I noticed a lot of junk that they sell. No wonder they are in trouble.

Dang, just bought The Dark Knight Rises Steelbook for $25 with the $5 coupon a couple weeks ago. Might go tomorrow to return it and purchase it at the $10. Will it ring up the clearence price in-store when purchased or do you have to reserve it online?

As long as your store shows it as being Clearance in the link I posted, it will ring up at Clearance Price. No In-Store Pickup/Reserve necessary.
