Office Season 4 Gift Set for me.. pre-ordering it at BB.com this week to take advantage of the 25% off special.

Thanks, speedy!

bluetoast 08-25-08 04:47 PM

Good to see some relatively cheap BDs, might pick up Enter the Dragon. Thanks Speedy!

pridesticks06 08-25-08 05:07 PM

Thanks Speedy! Still debating on where to get office, but most likely BB. Anyone have any idea what size the shirt will most likely be?

That's what I was thinking. But hey, I'd rather it be too big than too small! I'd rather not spend $30 for one online including shipping. Thanks!

Thanks, speedy!

Same here. Preordered mine last night. Looks like another great set, should go good with the first two Best Buy did.

asianxcore 08-25-08 05:50 PM

Thanks Speedy!

Might get that Hatebreed live DVD.

Have you had any pre-order experience with Best Buy? I've never pre-ordered with them for in-store pick up before (or at all for that matter), and am wanting to know how things usually are handled. Good? Bad? If I do pre-order, where do I pick it up when I go next tuesday? I'm fairly certain I will, $11 savings is pretty sweet deal.

sewcute 08-25-08 06:52 PM

a) I am having problems with BestBuy.com/2day

b) is there a desktop computer package, it's a compaq in there at all? (this week it's $449) thank you

You should be fine.

Have your documents ready...... especially your confirmation e-mail, photo id and credit card used.

They currently have a caveat that gives you $10 if they can't fulfill your service request in 1 minute I believe. BUT the time count begins when You turn over your service request & documents.

Be organized and you should be fine.

All Orders are at the Customer Service desk.

Store Pickup at my 2 stores is usually quite seamless.

There's only a laptop listed.

Circuit City has a desktop system I believe for those 2 days.

Alright, thanks very much for the info! Sounds fast and easy (that's what she said!). I'll be there at 10:00 am tuesday waiting (assuming the pre-order is ready then?). Can't wait to watch the office all next week!

FatTony 08-25-08 08:22 PM

$33 for a half-season of The Office!? I think I'll pass until a more reasonable price comes along.

Thanks for the info though!

One more thing I'd suggest for picking up The Office; go early. Sometimes they'll pull the wrong version when the same title has multiple releases. Since the box is limited you want to make sure they still have some available if they try to pull that crap on you. I'm not going to be there when they open, but I'm going to try to be there sometime that first day just in case.

What about the normal ad not just the 2 day sale?

thanks for the info on circuit city

I was just coming here to post that too. It says in the graphic at the top of the sale page "Excludes pre-orders and new releases", but I'm able to order The Office, Life, Big Bang Theory and Scrubs at 25% off. All righty, then! :)

Artman 08-25-08 09:32 PM

MGMT for me. Nice to see Fleet Foxes getting some exposure as well.

Al Padrino 08-25-08 09:37 PM

I might get the set and then flip the shirt on eBay to fray some of the cost of the set.

kstublen 08-25-08 09:59 PM

"The Office: Season 4" and "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" for me.

Thanks speedy, really appreciate all the work you do in giving us these prices in advance. Helps me budget myself, lol.

Good point. I remember when I had preordered POTC: At World's End on Blu-Ray. I had ordered the first two along with it because of the sale. When I went to the pick-up counter, they gave me the three movies, I left the store and as I checked them, I noticed they had given me two copies of the first movie and none of the second. It was becuase of the similar packaging. They fixed it easy enough. This is the only time it happened to me...but it does happen.
