Best Buy Prices: August 3 - August 9, 2008

HI Kids!

Got the Best Buy circular for 8/3/08 - 8/9/08 in my hands.

Please be aware of the following:
  • No Interest for 24 Months STOREWIDE on all brands, services and purchases totaling $999 & UP
  • GAMERS: The Wii is NOT listed in this week’s ad …… Sorry!
  • From time to time special deals / prices will be listed in the Store Notes Section & the in the product price thread that may or may not be available in your specific geographic area. This is due to Regional Market Variations of the nationwide ads that I post and as such, not all deals / prices will be available in all Best Buy stores. Please note that this version of the Best Buy ad originates in the Northeast.
  • All New Release CD / DVD prices listed are advertised as Available Tuesday 8/5/08


Ask any questions and I'll try to reply as soon as I can.

From a glance over, those $3.99 films look like CC ad this week, and the $6.99 dvds are $1 cheaper than CC this week. Good thing I didn't plan on going to CC this week. Thanks Speedy!

If it's a $24.99, it has to be the regular version of Code Geass: Leouch Of The Rebellion, Part 1. The LE version (including artbox, CDs, manga) is much higher in price (retail $74.98).

I'm not sure which one you're referring here about the Volume IV: 25 Episodes? Code Geass or something else?

Definitely agree in the $6.99 price for I'm Not There, Rizor. Been waiting to see it when it goes Blu, but for that price, I'll be happy to purchase.

I usually like it when Best Buy does their 2 for $30 specials, but the selection is pretty crummy. Only 4 titles? Come on.

Thanks speedy.

Yep. It's the first 2 volumes that make up Part 1(9 episodes). Here's the link to the listing at Rightstuf-


http://www.rightstuf.com/cgi-bin/cat...em/80417/4/0/0


Maybe the Volume IV/25 episodes refers to Family Ties Season 4.

I hope it really is the 2-disc Superbad that's on sale and it isn't just a misprint in the ad.

THe $24.99 tag is blocking out the lower right hand corner which says Part I.

Rogue is $14.99 pre-order on BB.com, so I would order now and do in-store pickup.

There's a circular Best Buy sticker in the upper right corner. I can make out the words "comic book" but nothing else so I'd say YES.

Wow. I can't believe Best Buy is still trying to get $99.99 per season for Enterprise and considers $59.99 a "sale".
