Thanks.

If anybody is having a problem finding things at BB, just go to dvdpricesearch and search for one of the titles above. That'll give you the necessary links.

I still need Nadesico Vol. 3, so i am going to see if the price is good in-store when i go there later.I might get them to price adjust the first 2 volumes if so,since i just bought them recently.

Yeah I love how they claim the stores don't have the stuff in stock as soon as a price drop occurs, total crap.

I wonder if I should leave Farscape in my cart, wait for them to fix their price and then check out.

At dvdpricesearch.com do a Power Search (it's just above the "all stores" dropdown box). Then put in something like 60% in the "at least x off MSRP" box. Finally, select Best Buy in the store dropdown. Click search.

The store inventory thing you can check through the website is never accurate,i don't think it has anything to do with particular price drops.
I can think of a bunch of stuff that i know for a FACT the BB here has in stock,yet the website says it isn't.

Farscape s2 is still a bargain at $57.99, a good twenty bucks lower than anywhere else.
