Yeah, maybe they should make it a "pre-bought" sale.

Does the BestBuy B&M/Kiosk order prices ever get transferred the online website prices eventually or is it unlikely? I'd like to get the Last Exile set and Samurai X: OVA but I don't live in US. ;/

The B&M/Kiosk and BestBuy.com (accessed outside the store) are basically separate entities. So it's very unlikely they will change all of the prices so that both would be the same.

3 Days of 'Bargains In the Bag' 33% OFF All Mythwear and Great Eastern Items! @ RightStuf.com

Take a breather from the back-to-school rush, and gear up for :Bargains In the Bag": Three days of uber-discounts on all items from Mythwear and Great Eastern! From bags, backpacks, keychains and wallets to wallscrolls, plushies, accessories and much more, you're sure to find at least a few of your favorite anime series represented!

From now until August 29 take at least 33% OFF the retail prices of all items from Mythwear and Great Eastern. (This includes pre-orders!)

How? There's no coupon code for this one, so the discounted price you see listed for each eligible item already reflects the 33% savings off its retail price!
  • Coupon Code: NONE!
  • Expires: August 29, 2007 at 11:59 CDT
REMEMBER: If you're a Got Anime member, you can stack your discounts for even more savings! (This means you have the potential to save up to 40% OFF the retail prices of Mythwear and Great Eastern items! Check out www.gotanime.com for details.)

* Not sure which products are included in the sale? To get started, just click on the :Bargains In the Bag" banner above: It will take you to a list of all the Mythwear and Great Eastern products we carry! (Please note: Bargain bin, weekly special and closeout items are not eligible for the coupon because they're already awesome deals - and this will be noted on the individual product pages for these items!)

There's currently a lawsuit pending about that although I havn't heard anything in a while.

FYE / Suncoast (B&M)

As reported from CAG, it looks like that the $7.99 FUNimation DVDs from the sale a while back (5 for $15) is now $1.99 each. These DVDs will again have the special UPCs applied to the packaging.

I haven't been able to update the first three posts for about 2 weeks or so. This nagging issue of editing long posts is really becoming a headache.

I'm in the midst of trying to work out an alternative with Geoff. I will post any upcoming changes (if any all) that will be made to the upcoming anime bargain threads.

I have seen the whole series and it's one of my favorite anime comedy series. There are loads of hilarious moments with parodies stringed in. The series has also drew some comparison to Azumanga Daioh though it's not really the same type of anime. The first season (26 eps.) gets better as it progress along. The OVA and 2nd Season is not as good as the 1st Season, but worth watching for those who enjoyed the 1st Season. If you don't mind high school anime comedy series, you may enjoy this. You can go to the School Rumble Official Website to view some video clips if you want to get a sample of what the series is kind of like.

One new thing they added was Boys Be.. Savers DVD Bargain Bundle (Hyb): $59.99

Stopped by my local Suncoast today (Omaha, NE) and they had the same rack with all the $7.99 Funimation DVDs, took a few up to the counter and they all scanned at $7.99 still, not $1.99. Maybe someone got it wrong, or it's just select stores? And yes, they were the ones with the special sticker s on the backs. =( *was looking forward to cheap $2 DVDs* heh.

Anyone else have any luck?

It appears to be regional, so YMMV!

This is the definition given by Right Stuf:
You might also see (Hyb) which means that both the subtitled and dubbed versions are available on the same DVD.
