Is this offer just for Black Friday? Will it be offered online or just in store. I just ordered the Sopranos Season 6 Vol. 2 at Deep Discount 20% off sale and I was going to order Flight of the Conchords today. I dont know if its worth fighting the crowds on Black Friday just to save a few bucks.

Guys, I'm not sure if this is supposed to be posted since it is part of the BF ad.

Maybe my memory is faulty (I have a mind like a steel sieve sometimes), but didn't they do this last year, either on Black Friday or a special one-day sale? Or was that in the 20-25% neighborhood?


It's deja vu all over again.

Question: If you buy something before hand, then come back on BF, do BB/CC allow you to price match? I want to get an HDTV, but I will be out of town and won't be able to transport it.

I'd love to get my hands on Curb Your Enthusiasm 1,2,3&5, Flight Of The Conchords and Da Ali G Show but I'm not sure I will if this deal is available only on Black Friday, I never go shopping on black friday.

So if we bought an HBO DVD in a few days and then went back to BB on 11/23 with the receipt, would they refund the difference?


Does this also include Extras?

I dont go near the malls on Black Friday either. If its the same deal as Christmas Eve last year then you can order online and do in store pick up a few days later

Wow. I wish I had an extra $1,000... Is this a one-day-only sale or will it last the week?

No, the sale is valid for those buying in store the day of the sale, & the BF sales usually are only good until 10AM that morning.

It's so very tempting to grab what I need of The Sopranos at that price (and new) even though they've hinted that the complete series is coming next Christmas and on HD and BD. Very tempting.

Seeing the recent spate of HBO TV sales at BB, Sams' Club, etc., it looks like many of these TV series can be had for less than $20 per season if one is willing to wait a couple of years after their release. I paid $45 a series for Carnivale S1&2 and Rome S1 at BB's 50%-off sale last year; it seemed like a good deal at the time but now it obviously is not. So, as much as I would like to get Deadwood S1-3 I think I will hold off and pass on BB's 50%-off sale this year.

agreed. I think deadwood and rome are next in line to fall below $20.

Deadwood was $30 a season earlier in the summer at Costco...and I got one of them for $10 due to stupidity on the part of the returns cashier.

Same here.

I was hoping for great sales on both SFU and Deadwood this year. I got my wish for SFU early with the BB sale this week. Even with the 50%, $42+ Tax/season is a little more than I wanted to spend after dropping $100 on SFU 1-5.

I agree, I feel good that I brought Carnivale S1 and S2 this week for 20 bucks a piece at Best Buy, probably better than 50 percent off this coming 23rd.
