Also, the Paypal $10 off $35 is still ongoing.

So can you combine the OCTOBERBOGO with the Paypal discount?

Doesn't look like it combines with the Paypal code. Just tried on a test order and one cancels the other out.

On the plus side, the 50% off is taken sort of like a total order discount, so this is good with sale items (i.e. you'll still receive the sale price, versus getting 50% off an item's MSRP).

Does anyone know if this is a reuseable coupon? Thanks.

Darn, I left my FYE gift card at home. This is worth exploring, especially with all of their rebate deals... Does this work on box sets too? I assume yes, but just making sure... For orders $35-$40, $10 off $35 is a better deal, except this allows you to use a gift card instead of paying with Paypal.

Examples: if you bought two $25 titles, you will save $12.50. But if you bought two $18 titles, you will save only $9. And if you bought two $35 titles, you'd pay $52.50 before rebate for both. But to order separately with $10 off $35 will cost only $50 before rebates. However, this allows you to get two cheaper titles that are LESS than $35. The kicker is this coupon forces you to purchase 2 titles, whereas the $10 off $35 can be just one title.

Yeah last night I saw this on another forum and managed to grab the Spartacus Criterion for $16 shipped. I hope they don't cancel.

Please explain. It is listed at $49.99 on their website. So if you got half off, it would be $25. How did you get it for $16???

I am thinking of picking up the 4-disc Caligula (with a 5 dollar rebate) and the new version of Robocop.

With free shipping and the buy one get one half off coupon (not counting the rebate) the total is 39.48.

Does that sound like a good deal?

[edit] Nevermind. Apparently Robocop is only 14.99 on amazon (I already have something else in my cart to get free shipping) and the same price on buy.com (where I can use the 10 off google shipping).

This couldn't have come at a better time for me. I just amassed around $500 in GCs on trade-ins(when they had the extra 20% brown bag promotion in July). This will cover my purchases for the rest of 2007. A big thanks, bigkid!

Yeah I got the used copy which was $29.99. I think this 50% off thing is only on used items anyways.

Does this work on pre-orders, or in stock only? If it works on pre-orders, then this is way better than $10 off $35...

It doesn't work on preorders. Otherwise I would be all over a couple of complete series sets coming up.

I just tested this. It actually does work if you pre-order one item, then take 50% off of an in-stock item. So I'll be placing a few orders for sure...

Good idea, I hadn't tried that. Thanks!

Indeed, here's one I did:

Knocked Up [HD] $27.99
Save after $7.00 rebate! Purchase now and receive $7 after mail-in rebate! Offer valid from 8/21/2007 to 10/8/2007 on new product only
Transformers [HD] $27.99
Save after $7.00 rebate! Purchase now and receive $7 after mail-in rebate! Offer valid from 9/24/2007 to 10/29/2007 on new product only

Item Total: $55.98
Shipping: 0.00
Discount: -14.00
Tax: 2.10

----------------------

Amount Charged to Credit Card:
$44.09


So, after the rebates, these will come out to about $15 each.

I just used the code on Friday Night Lights Season 1. Apparently, this code gives 50% off on orders with only one DVD also.

Oh no - so tempting....must fight urge....

FYE will most likely hold these orders out in limbo for months, but there's always that bunch that gets their stuff shipped.
