Well i use these mostly for books and comic TPB's so it's a great deal for me.Although I also see that the Stargate SG-1 season sets are $49.99 there,so i will probably get one or two of those @ $35 each with the coupon.Thanks OP.

Do you have to go in the store to get Borders pricing information? I've always known their website to refer you to amazon.com to shop for DVDs because they are partnered. But I'd like to find out what certain items would cost me before I go in.

If you look at the right hand side on Amazon when you're browsing Books/dvds, there is a little box that says "available for instore pickup for $XX.XX". That price i have found to be fairly accurate to Border's DVD prices. They are fairly expensive. I was browsing around there the other day and DVDs you could get at Best Buy/Target for $10 were selling for almost full MSRP.

Hmmm.... I went because I'm apparently the only person who hasn't yet purchased SW: Original Trilogy. Though the "pick up at store" price on that is $59.99, while visiting the store shown on the website (actually all stores within 100 miles show that price) I saw that it was for sale for MSRP, yep, that's right, $69.99.

I used this last night when I first saw the coupon and was browsing around to get a gauge on prices. It turned out to be pretty accurate. Hope it helps.

Like Reynolds said --- look at the "bordersstores" website not Amazon for the correct prices as well as store inventory (which stores have it available is pretty accurate, not 100%, but close enough). I always look at their Borders site when these sales come up to check prices as well as which store, if any have what I want, so I am not running all over.

That's what I do too!

Picked up Wayne's World: The Complete Epic box yesterday for 10.49 (7.47, actually, because I found a giftcard in an old wallet before I went over there). And then today I went back and picked up The White Stripes: Under Blackpool Lights for 10.49.

I saw Chasing Amy Criterion for 14.99 (10.49 after coupon), so that might be a good deal for someone out there.

Studio Classics (this is the FOX collection with 4 movies....all about eve, gentleman's agreement, How Green was my valley and Sunrise) is priced at $25.99. After coupon and taxes, it is about $19.50 for me. Less than $5 per movie and Sunrise is only available through this boxset.

I went today, but couldn't find a single thing I was looking for that was cheaper than online once sales tax was added in. Their prices are just downright silly. I was going to get House of Flying Daggers, but it was still cheaper at Target since they wouldn't take the 30% off of the sales price only off the original price of $25.99. I got that at Target for $17.99 and will just wait for the next 20% sale at DDD for the other stuff on my list.

I got the email and forwarded it to work to print. Sadly it never arrived.
I'll have to try again.

When these coupons appear, I usually check items on my wish list (except for things I'll eventually get through CH). I'm happy to report that they have The Twilight Zone: Season 1 (1985-1986) priced at $56.99 instead of $69.99 MSRP. This brings the price down to $39.89. I wanted to get this during the last DDD 20%-off sale, but they didn't add that title until near the end of the sale.

Argue all you want, but 30% off MSRP at a B&M is generally a "good" deal. Is it the best deal ever? No, but with this coupon you can shop at Borders and get as good or a slightly better deal than you will find at Best Buy. Plus, Borders has a much deeper selection than the above electronics discounter.

Plus, if you sign up for the "Border's Rewards" card you get a personal shopping day that is good for an additional 10% off for the entire day and if you spend over $100 in July, they will credit an additional 10% of your purchase to your "Holiday Savings Account".

Once your Holiday Savings Account reaches $10, you will be awarded Holiday Savings in increments of $10 that you will be able to use between November 15, 2005 and January 15, 2006.

That would be like 50% off of their prices.

I applaud Borders for their diverse stock. I usually buy "fringe" titles that places like Target, Best Buy ... never have. Borders always seems to have a hidden goodie just right for a coupon

Sure the final price can be beat by online retailers but I got it in hand, no floaters/damage, easier return.

Thanks OP. I found Dick Francis Mysteries (OOP), a 2-disc collection of 3 full length features, for $13.99 + tax, after coupon. It'll be a great gift for my mom. I was hoping (but by no means expecting), to find The Jazz Singer (1980 Neil Diamond Version) for her, since she asked me a while ago to try to track it down. I know, snowball's chance, but if you think that's delusional, I had briefly hoped they might come out with a 25th Anniversary edition. Now, that's delusional.

Good deal. Plus, since nobody buys stuff there much because of the prices, you can get some hard-to-find titles. I recently got The Shawshank Redemption LE (w/book & soundtrack) there, which went OOP not long after it was released. I happened to have a 25% coupon that day, so it beat the heck out of trying to get it on e-bay.

Thanks to the OP for this coupon. The only better deal I've had at Borders is when I had a 25% off coupon during a week when they also had the "buy 3 DVDs, get the 4th free" deal.
