The Miami store is clearing their stuff out, though. Last week it was 40% off, and there's a big sign in thier window that says "CD and DVD Clearance."

He also said the only store in the area that wouldn't be affected was the Brentwood location. They would be the one to keep their amount of titles the same and thus not participate in the sale.
The sales is on at Chesterfield 30% off. I picked up LADY SNOWBLOOD for $17.50 plus tax.

I hope the clerk is right about Brentwood keeping a full stock of DVDs. I'd like to have at least one store in the St Louis area that has a wide selection of DVDs for browsing. It's not mentioned on the list of stores not participating in the sale.

Re: Borders - Montclair, CA store - 50% off all DVDs and CDs

Farmington CT store is 30% off CDs and DVDs. Sadly, both the Simsbury and Farmington stores are taking their sweet time putting red stickers on everything. A worker said that eventually the prices will change to 40% off and so on. The Farmington store used to have a huge CD/DVD section. There's a ton of empty CD racks so I think they've been reducing their inventory all along.

This is what I've picked up so far:

Billy Joel - 52nd Street
Elton John - Elton John Deluxe Edition
Elton John - Tumbleweed Connection Deluxe Edition
Laura Nyro - Time and Love: The Essential Masters
Laura Nyro - Eli and the Thirteenth Confession
Nina Simone - The Soul of Nina Simone Dual Disc (CD/DVD)
Dinah Washington - Dinah Washington's Finest Hour
Nick Drake - Bryter Layter

Anybody noticed if Law and Order box sets are included this deal? My Borders is about 30 minutes away, so I thought I'd ask before I drove there..

If your store is using the red sticker method, what is and isn't on sale is anyone's guess. Make sure your store isn't on the list of excluded locations first!

So, some of these locations are increasing the discount price?

Stores are increasing the % off discount, but at the stores near me, very little has been stickered. Therefore, most of what is on the floor remains full price.

The NoVa locations are all at 30% off which is the same discount as the usual Borders Rewards coupon. I'm waiting for 50%+

Went to one store they had 40% off ALL DVDs.

Went to another store, they only had 40% off red tagged DVDs.

Puzzling...

If anyone is near Union City, CA, they just put all DVD, CD and BD's at 50% off starting today. Picked up a couple of BD's for $14.50 and $14.99.

The store in Provo, Utah was at 30% off last week, and I bought "Still Life" for $21. Now they're at 40%, and I bought The Three Colors Trilogy for $22. They still have a ton of stock left (including quite a few Criterions), and when/if they get to 50% I'll probably pick up quite a few.

The Borders on Sunset and Stephanie (here in Las Vegas) is 50% off CDs and DVDs.

Picked up:
The work of directors Corbijn / Glazer / Romanek / Sednaoui - $39.99
The Evil Dead: Ultimate Edition - $16.99
Tropic Thunder: Director's Cut - $17.99
Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance - $9.99
Lady Vengeance - $9.99

Went to another Borders. Was 40% off red sticker items. Some good titles I'd purchase, when they go for 50% or more off.

Stopped in my nearest Borders after breakfast and everything was 50%. Some nice deals, but things -- especially BD -- didn't seem to flying off the shelf. I'll check back later in the week and compare with Borders about a block from my office.

Re: Borders - Montclair, CA store - 50% off all DVDs and CDs

Word of caution about some of these sales is that they may stop and then ship off whatever is left.

I went to one today that was at 50% and asked how long would it be on? I ask this of the guy in the DVD section and then the cashier and got the same answer from both. They did not expect this sale to go beyond 40%, that all not sold would have been shipped off. Therefore they said this 50% could last another week or 2, maybe.

Now for what was said in the other Borders coupon thread, about 75% off select items at some stores for a blowout. Maybe that means that these sales will continue and the stuff not shipped out.

As it seems some stores are ahead of the curve, so to speak, it will be interesting to see what happens at those that have already reached 50%.

As another poster said, things, even at 50% do not seem to be flying off the shelves, so I do not know....maybe they will continue it rather than pay to ship and then liquidate.
