I've only done a few of them, but I've never had a problem.

If you want more info on FYE and rebates please review all the past threads on the topic. It has been discussed to death. We should respect the OP's thread and keep it focused on the deal he is discussing....otherwise it becomes a store forum thread and gets moved.

Also new $4.99 deals

They also set up a new $4.99 after rebate rack. The date range for these and the $2.99 after rebate rack seems to be 4/6 through 4/26. I picked up from the $4.99 rack:

Bachelor Party
Days of Thunder
Election
Basic Instinct: Ultimate Edition

Lots more on there but I can't remember which, except for that perennial discount rack favorite Mean Girls and the standard version of Speed.

As for FYE's rebate system, the earliest one I ever sent in just showed up on their tracking web site after a month or two. I used the white/yellow sticker UPC price tag, not the DVD box UPC, and it seems to say the rebate is successfully processing.

If you do the FYE rebate deals alot, I'd recommend getting the Backstage Pass. It's another 10% off the before rebate price. I've had it since Oct 2005 and it's more than paid for itself. And I've had no problems with the rebates so far.

Rebates, as an employee and hating them, another story for another day. There are many baseball movies (because of the start of the season) that are $1.99 after MIR and are on sale for around $7 or $8, lilke *61, the Major League trilogy of movies, Little Big League, and some others. Without a doubt the Back to the Future is a great deal, as I bought it on sale, used my backstage page to get it for $16.20 and then the MIR. Saw it at Walmart the other day for $22

Does anyone know if the Godzilla titles that are on sale for $9.99 (Vs. Mechagodzilla, Against Mechagodzilla, Tokyo SOS, and All-Out Attack) have rebates on them?

If you purchase all of your DVDs together, the cash register will print one rebate form with all of the DVDs you purchased on it.

That's only if the DVDs are part of the same rebate promotion. You get separate rebate forms if they're not. The Back To The Future rebate is a different program than the others.

don't want to mess up this thread but

I saw the Buy 1 Get 1 Free deal table at my local FYE
had the Ultimate Oliver Stone Collection for $50

so 2 of those for $25 each seems good to me.. i may go get two in the morning.

Thank you, I didn't realize there were separate promotions.
I purchased a bunch today. I got one rebate form for Back To The Future and one rebate form for the rest of the DVDs.

These DVDs (already mentioned) are $8.99 with only a $4 rebate:
Election $4.99 after $4 MIR
King Kong (1976) $4.99 after $4 MIR
The Gift $4.99 after $4 MIR

I saw this DVD (not mentioned):
Aliens (Special Edition NOT Collector's Edition) $4.99 after $5 MIR
I did not purchase it, so I can't guarantee it will ring up right.

There are two versions of National Lampoon's Van Wilder, the Unrated version and the R-rated version. The Unrated version is the one that is $2.99 after $5 MIR. I thought I should mention it just in case someone finds an old R-rated version.
