Punch-Drunk Love (Two Disc Special Edition) $5.99 at Best Buy

Just got back from Best Buy and saw they had the Punch-Drunk Love (Two Disc Special Edition) on sale for $5.99. This was not in this weeks ad, so I thought I'd post it for anyone interested.

This'll most likely be a YMMV situation.

Thanks for the heads-up, I'll check it out.

I just bought this in a lot on Ebay, so I'm a little peturbed to say the least.

To say the least indeed, you forgot the 'r.'

At that price, no one has an excuse not to give this great film a chance!

Is it really that good? It sounds really weird.

The deal is available ONLINE. It's not YMMV, just buy it online and pick it up at your store.

IMO, the most "thrilling" experience I have ever had film-wise was watching this movie. I was on pins and needles the entire time. The film is somewhat "weird" but that's what makes it really good.

Thanks for your response. I bit. It was just too good a deal to pass up and the other reviews that I read said that it was decent, just weird.

Anyway, you gotta love a guy who amasses all those frequent flyer miles by eating pudding! In honor of that, I went thru the CO airlines portal to earn 2 FF miles per/$1 spent on the purchase!

It is weird as hell, but in a good way.
I'd already bitten on it at 9.99 when it first showed up at BB at that price.


Which also means this 5.99 shouldn't be TOO surprising (only a $4 price difference for their normal 2 disc price)

FangsFirst, I am confused. This is the 2 Disc edition, right? DVDpricesearch.com indicates that many of the stores sell this for around $20+ and that even Best Buy sells it normally for $26.99.

Sorry, I am having trouble reproducing the dvdpricesearch link for some reason, but if you input it you would see what I mean.

So, how is it that it normally sells for $9.99? I thought I was getting a great bargain, similar to last week's CE of Titanic for $6.99. Not so? I am really confused, now.

Thanks, OP. Selected in-store picked and used Visa (instead of my store credit or rewards points) just in case it's the wrong version. Definately worth a trip to the store just in case.

Well, I guess this could be YMMV, but my store *always* stocks the 2 disc at 9.99.
I bought it at that price thinking it was an accident months ago. I saw the 5.99 display today though, and they all had normal 9.99 stickers on them.

I think (my memory is hazier here though) that shortly after I bought it, they got a new copy or two in and then, too, it was 9.99.

So if it IS a weird fluke, it's an awfully persistent one...

EDIT: also, there's plenty of out of date info on price search...and currently BB doesn't list their 'normal' price--just "list" (28.96? I don't think so...) and the current sale price.

EDIT 2: heh, and yes, to be clear, I DO mean the 2 disc for sure. I pretty much refuse to buy a 'secondary' version of a film, just in case I later feel the desire for a bigger one (if it's not ultra important, I wait for a cheap price on the fancy shmancy edition, but still aim for the fancy shmancy all the same).
More to the point, I haven't even *seen* the single disc in AGES...and I can't recall seeing it at this Best Buy since I started paying attention around the time I bought it (9/16/06)---ONLY the 2 disc has been there since then, and as best I recall priced at 9.99 only, minus sales like this.

Thanks for the info. Maybe your store has some sort of unadvertised special.

In any event, I should get confirmation tomorrow.

It's a Superbit. Most Superbits have been $9.99 at Best Buy for ages...

Great film, but I'm biased (PTA geek).

actually, no.
but give sheeple a low price on something, whether they need it or not, and rest assured they will leave work early to purchase it.
