Final Destination 1&2 Pack with FD3 Ticket

Just picked this up from Best Buy for 14.99. Did not have these two in my collection yet. The pack has movie cash for part 3, plus a preview disc for 3 and Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny.

How are the extras on the 3rd disc about the new film? Are they pretty in depth or just promotional fluff? I only ask because I already own the two other films, but $15 is not too bad if the third disc is really worth it. Thanks.

I'm heading to Best Buy after work to get this. I'm going to open it right away and make sure I don't get screwed out of a ticket.

UninTy, where did you buy your set?

I had the same problem, bought from bb. I haven't opened the sealed movie discs yet, but there's nothing in the bonus disc.
Any idea where it's at?

My ticket was inside the Final Destination 1 case.

The free movie ticket was in the Final Destination 1 disc case of my set too.

This is a great deal! 2 DVDs, a movie ticket worth up to $10.50, and a promotional disc with a lot of trailers, etc.

Final Destination 2 is a lot of fun - in a playfully gory kind of way. I'd recommend this set as a blind buy to just about anyone.

Does the cover art for the individual movies have a bar code?

I picked this up today at Target. Yes, the ticket for FD 3 is inside the case of FD 1. My god, people, open the damn thing up before complaining you got screwed!

I entered the bar code off the cardboard backing into my DVD Profiler, but it wasn't recognized. Should I input them individually, or will DVD Profiler eventually be updated with the barcode for the 2 pack?

I saw FD 2 on cable and found it unlike anything I'd ever seen. I haven't seen FD1 yet, so that will be a treat. I'm pretty picky about my buys, but as has been said, this was a deal too good to pass up. Factor in the value of the movie at, say, $8, and you get each movie for about $3.50 each. Worth it in my book.

They'll update it eventually. I bought Junebug today as well and it wasn't in there. DVD Af. had both.

Um, I didn't want to open it incase I had to return it. And, I wasn't complaining about getting screwed, only asking where it was found. IMO, it should have been separate, since these are not new releases, just packaged together.
As for your Profiler question, what I do is enter the UPC manually. Add the individual movies to the Box set, and eventually when you do a profile update it will see your UPC and get a match, and update the profile/images.

I wasn't saying I got screwed either.

To be honest, just wanted to be able to maximize this deal by selling the unopened (FD2) for about 6-7 bucks, then buying another set, getting the second ticket and then selling the open FD1 for whatever I can get for it.

Final deal would be 2 movie tickets and Death Pack Set for around 14 bucks or so. Obviously, I'm not going to FD3 alone, so it is worth the trouble to grab another free ticket.

FYI, I was browsing CircuitCity.com and see that this comes available in 2 different packs:

Side-by-side:



&

Back-to-back:



Assuming just a minor packaging difference, so not a big deal.

Nice to see that this also has the bonus disc. Maybe we can change the thread title?

I saw the Side-by Side pack at Wal-Mart, and the back to back set at Target. Only $14.24 at my Wally, so great deal!

The "back to back" packaging is all I saw at Target. Makes more sense to me, as it can serve like a slipcase that you can keep the two keepcases in and put it on your shelf. The side-by-side won't work like that. So, if you want to keep that packaging, it can be a bit of a deal.

And maybe "screwed" was the wrong word to use. I just found it ridiculous that people were taking the time to post here about not finding the movie ticket when they hadn't bothered to actually look for it.

If anyone has a Fred Meyer in the area, there was a $3.00 off coupon any DVD purcahse of $14.99 or higher in the weekly advertisement. Also, the Final Destination pack is only going for $14.99-$3.00=$11.99 Not bad for two movies and a free movie ticket.

I saw the first FD and thought it was OK, but not the 2nd one. For both FDs + bonus DVD + the movie ticket at $14.99 I'll buy it if I can, but I didn't make my usual Tuesday trips because I was busy. I called up BBY thinking I'd go by on Thursday, but they said they sold out on the first day (knowing them they probably got less than 10 copies total).

Besides CC, do any other stores have the same FD 2-pack + bonus DVD + movie ticket for $14.99? I missed what the price was at TGT (since they don't PM). Does Walmart carry these with the movie ticket?

Target's price is also $14.99, and it comes with the ticket. Saw it a few days ago.

i've seen both.

the first one is definitely more suspenseful, because...well, it's the first one and you don't know exactly what's going to happen.

the second one is more gory.

not sure which one I liked more.

as for the movie ticket, i guess some people have never bought one of the dvds that have, in the past, been advertised with a free movie ticket.

i've bought an I, Robot: SE (that came with a Fantastic Four movie ticket) and a couple of others that came with movie tickets *inside* the cases.

anyway, more people will know now.

So is there an actual slipcover? Is it like the Blade Giftset with standard cases inside a new case, or like any other 2 pack (just 2 movies sealed together with no packaging)?

The picture @ WalMart.com looks like a box set.

It's a slipcover.

BEST BUY has this for $14.99 as well.

Wal-Mart this morning only had the side-by-side 2-pack for $15.84.

I went to walmart last night and mine also had the side-by-side 2-pack which I thought was strange since they had the slip cover on their site.

I went down the road to Best Buy and they had the slip cover for 14.99 so I picked that up. Cheaper and I like the packaging better
