That makes sense, but last week it did work on the Simple Lifes that were sub 9.99. So maybe corporate "fixed" the coupon to not work on that pricepoint. BB is bizarre.

Worked for me today to get the Family guy movie for 4.99 (I was a bit worried because the teller looked at it quite intently for awhile but then she scanned it and it worked so cheers)

I'll miss this deal

I got shot down at the Best Buy in Greenfield, WI yesterday. The cashier called over a manager who said I needed the original and took my coupons. He also mentioned how many fakes one he had seen recently.

So I decided to drive out to the Best Buy by Mayfair Mall because I had printed 6 coupons and he only took the 3 I tried using. At Mayfair I picked up season 1,3, and 4 of Angel. The cashier mentioned how much she loved the show so I talked with her about and she scanned the coupons with out even reading.

Are the Angel seasons still $15.99, so therefore $5.99?

Glad I haven't tried the Greenfield store. I've had success at Menomonee Falls & the one over by BayShore Mall.

I used 12 coupons at Greenfield last week over 4 days, so that is probably why he saw a lot lately.

Got the whole series of The Pretender for $20!! Thats cheaper than what everyone paid for their 300 2discers.... damn!

It was a blind buy, but I didnt want to let these coupons go unused. They were also basically free cause I got $20 GC from RZ, 10 for the SOE and 10 for a complaint I made

Did they have to do any manual override or did it work like normal?

Yea I forgot to mention, they had to override it. They checked the box to make sure it was Fox. They had alot of problems doing it too. THey kept looking at the coupon up and down and I thought I was screwed several times. But it went good and they apologized for taking so long.

I was looking through the box sets and noticed that "Kung Fu" S2 & S3 were $14.99 so I brought them to the register and the coupons didn't work {really? LOL} so the cashier called over the busy manager that simply punched in the pw code and got both sets for $4.99 each...

Too bad they didn't have S1...

I may go back tomorrow and get all of the Pretenders...

lol yeah ive been using a lot lately too. I think I used 4 last week

I have had good success there though. I used about 20 all summer at GF and then 6 at the one by Mayfair.

The last time I went was the only time I was shut down

Picked up 21 Jump Street Seasons 1 and 5 today for $4.99 at the Wilmington, DE store. Season 5 didn't come up as a Fox Show but my wife pointed out that "it aired on Fox" so the manager put it through...

Between the coupons, the many sales involving Fox TV sets and throw in the Summer of Entertainment promotion and it was a good summer at Best Buy.

Between the coupons, the many sales involving Fox TV sets and throw in the Summer of Entertainment promotion and it added up to a pretty good couple of months at Best Buy.
