FYE - Spend $30 now, get $10 later

I was at my local FYE yesterday and saw a sign in the window for a promotion where if you spend $30 or more you get a $10 coupon to use 8/7-8/27.

It was the icing on the cake of a couple of other good, still-valid FYE deals...

$1.99AR DVDs ($6.99 - $5 rebate) ENDS 7/20/05
Austin Powers in Goldmember
The Bachelor
Blast From the Past
Drop Dead Gorgeous
Rush Hour 2
The Wedding Singer

They also had The Bad News Bears for $4.99 with any other purchase (reg. $12.99) -- not sure when this particular promotion ends.

There were a few good sales around the store too. I picked up Vanilla Sky for $5.99 (reg. $7.99).

Side note - when redeeming these coupons, some employees might tell you that they can't be used on Used items. This is not true, and the employee is either misinformed or lying. If they persist, tell them to enter it as a "discount" instead of modifying the item price. Also, make sure that you split your receipts to as close to $30 as possible. At two stores today, employees gave me a hard time about this, as if they owned the joint anyhow. Stand your ground on this one and it becomes a really excellent deal.

Also, make sure you keep some documentation of the deal, like if there is an store flyer or something. I didn't have any problem with it when I did a similar promotion, but employee turnover in some stores is so high that some people have reported problems in the past because literally no one in the store knew about the promotion when it came time to redeem the credit.

When I made my purchase they stapled the coupon to my original receipt so that it is all there when I go back in August. What irked me a bit was that you need the original receipt for BOTH the $10 promotion and the $5 rebates -- but the rebate cut-off is two weeks after the coupon deal, so I should be able to use my coupon and then send in for the rebates.
