Yes indeed it was. I thought as I walked in, "Wait--lowest price is 6.99 on any DVDs, and that's 5.59, which is no real deal for those movies."
I browsed anyway since I'd driven out, then left emptyhanded.

Re: Circuit City Liquidation Deals (post your finds here)

Are the Christmas CDs & DVDs still 75% off or did they raise them back up for the big sale?
I'll be going to one on Thursday and was just wondering.

I walked in, looked at the absurd line running down the aisle and walked out. Nothing worth an hour of my time I decided.

The store here had a more than ample supply of 360s and PS3s -- no Wiis or DSes. I went in specifically looking for a DS or I never would have noticed.

Thanks, I'm going on a Thursday on my way to the doctor so hopefully it won't be bad then.

As I mentioned in another thread, I saw a new, sealed Nintendo Gamecube at the local CC. Also, a lot of Apple peripherals were available. I'll probably check back on those later.

Re: Circuit City Liquidation Deals (post your finds here)

I was pretty happy there walking out with "How I Met Your Mother" S3 and "Wild Wild West" S2 for 50 bucks. Only thing that was awful were the lines. All because everything had to be hand keyed in and the cashiers were armed with calculators to figure the percentage off.

Not wanting to threadcrap, burnside, or spoil your find, but Amazon has WWWS2 for $28.99 and HIMYMS3 for $22.49 (total $51.48) with no time spent driving to store/waiting in line or gas spent. Also, you have 30 days to return the items.

I know that 'the joy of the hunt' has some intrinsic value, but just wanted to point out that the current 'deals' at CC can be matched a lot of places online, whether at retailers like DD or Amazon or at AmazonMarketplace or half.com.

I sell online and at flea market...we sell sealed copies of WWW2, for instance, for $25. Again, not wanting to be a party pooper, but I'm being careful about jumping in on the CC fiasco. I'm still bummed that we were so busy during the CC 30% off CD sale a couple of weeks back that I didn't get to go to our neighboring CC and fill in some holes. Reading previous posts has confirmed that, predictably, people are buying CDs at 10-20% off that they ignored at 30% off. I imagine that most anything I would have gotten 3 weeks ago will be gone by the time the discounts reach 30% again (sigh).

Anyway, I'm sure that the occasional deal can be found at CC; however, if I were looking for a specific item, I'd search for it online first.

Remember...it's going to be hard to take any defective products back to CC for a refund/exchange. Are all sales final or do they still guarantee products if you check them out pretty quickly (before the doors close permanently)?

I'm hoping that when the discounts get high, there will still be a digital SLR available.

We'll see.

Still a few months away, but if you've waited this long anyway (like I have), what's a few more ???

I got both How I Met Your Mother S2 & S3 from AMAZON a few weeks back for $19.99, I already had S2 but I figured for an extra $5, why not. You could've bought just S3 for $14.99 then. You do need to watch for "deals" at CC at the beginning of this sale because MSRP does suck.

Good luck with that.

Why would anyone buy a high-price item during this liquidation? All sales are final.

In Henderson, NV no. There was a big sign saying 75% off I grabbed Polar Express which was on the list and when the cashier rang it up there was no discount.

I thought the sale ended on the 16th? There was a date at the bottom of the sign with the end date.

Re: Circuit City Liquidation Deals (post your finds here)

Dropped by mine yesterday, found a couple movies I was interested in, but their checkouts are lousy and the lines were going to the back of the store. No thanks, I figured I could get those titles from DD next 20% off sale, maybe even cheaper.

Re: Circuit City Liquidation Deals (post your finds here)

I have a hard time of getting a DVD at a 20% discount, and pay someone in a red shirt who is about to lose his/her job, because of me making the purchase. I guess I think too rational.

That's not rational. They are going to lose their job regardless of how much you, or anybody else, buys.

Re: Circuit City Liquidation Deals (post your finds here)

I drove by my local CC, saw the amount of cars outside and kept driving. There's really nothing I'm looking for anyway, but I'm not gonna waste my time trying to look through things only to find one or two things I might want. And there was no way I was gonna stand in Black Friday type lines for stuff.

Not sure iwhen it was supposed to end, but I was able to score a copy of the 2-disc 40th Anniversary Edition DVD of Sound of Music yesterday for $4 + tax yesterday. So I know that at least that one is still ringing up 75% off before the 20% off discount.

No spoliers at all, partner. I hardly if ever shop online. Im the type that wants to go to the store, buy it and watch it that day. Hate ordering something, then having to wait for the mail to come. Luckily CC and BB and even Target are within 5 minutes of my house, so I'm not sweating the gas or time (plus it was lunchtime and dern it i was hungry). I know that better deals are online, but if the price is only a couple of bucks between me getting something at the brick and mortar or getting off line, Ill go to the store. Youre also right, in the fact that CC selection sucks. After the incident with Speedy and his circular posts, I pretty much stopped going there. I noticed that every time they had no stock and everything was just kind of thrown at the shelves. Ergo, no more browsing there. Until they went under that is.
