Hollywood Video: All Pre-viewed titles $2.49 - $7.49 (no minimum)

Sorry if this has been posted - I didn't see a topic on it.

Went to 2 Hollywood Video locations today and both are running the "4 for $xx.xx" promotion, however, they also had flyers printed out next to each section displaying the actual cost per title with no minimum.

$5.99 (4 for $10) titles are $2.49
$9.99 (4 for $20) titles are $4.99
$14.99 (4 for $30) titles are $7.49

They had some very decent titles in the $4.99/$7.49 sections. I already owned most that I was interested in but did pick up Final Destination 3 for $4.99 and Bloodrayne for $2.49.

This may be a YMMV because the signs looked like they may have just been printed out from the store printer, but both stores visited were running the promo.

No, this the regular sale, what the OP said was (using the 4/$30 example) that you don't have to buy 4 DVDs to get them for $7.49 each, but only pay that much for one.

It is a regular sale. BTW 4 for $30 is not a better deal compare to 3 for $20 at blockbuster.

I don't know, paying an extra $0.83 to NOT have the crappy Blockbuster cases might be worth it


Also, I thought the OP was saying that there was no min so you don't have to get 4 DVDs get them at $7.49, $2.49, etc.

^ That's nice. I don't think they do it here (in Oregon), though. Anyway, I still prefer Hollywood Video over Blockbuster (plus they have a lifetime warranty).

An update to this (and I didn't know this before), I brought up 4 movies for $30 and asked when The Fountain would be available and the woman went over to a stack to the side and got one out. I was going through which of the 4 I was going to give up when she said she can sell the 5th one for $7.50 since I already am getting the other four.

I guess it might be YMMV what each Hollywood Video does. I guess some will sell them for $7.50 each while others you have to get the first four...

If you look closely at the promo signs in the store, they usually have small print that says something like "4 or more" - I've only ever once seen a HV sign that spelled out that you had to buy in exactly groups of 4 - and that was in a store where the other 3 signs said "4 or more" anyway. However, their new 'parent' company, Movie Gallery, has always required that you buy in groups of 4 to get their sale pricing.
