Re: Wal-Mart Bargains Thread #2

I was wondering why Gravity Falls complete was so cheap at $20 but then I saw it had basically no extras at all. Not worth it.

Re: Wal-Mart Bargains Thread #2

Many Warner and HBO DVDs are now ten dollars each. The stuff that should've appeared in last year's Black Friday.

Took home, "Chernobyl" and "Castle Rock" season one. Also saw season two of "West World" and others.

"Chernobyl" didn't come with its slipcover... so I got creative. I bought it. My store has the non-sale version - which is the same thing, but that has the slip. Pulled off a slipcover from a regular and put it over my copy on sale. Took it to the register, paid for it. It's a mint copy by the way.

Also saw one of the seasons of "American Gods". And the current(?) seasons "Supergirl, "The Flash" and "Arrow" off the top of my head.

The deluxe Omen Collector's Blu-ray box set is showing up at some Walmarts for $39.96, way cheaper than anywhere else.

Apparently stores are currently getting a reset.

Looks like the bargain bins are starting to get a new mix of Blu-rays and DVDs in some locations.

Re: Wal-Mart Bargains Thread #2

Seen walmart by me have like 2 bins kinda of dvd and maybe blu rays any but coverd with dvd since dvd in ways sell less then blu rays. but keep thinking streaming has maybe caused dvd and blu rays to sell less now as media sells almost anyplace around me. i just know where to go for the cheapest and then go from there.the is for movies and tv shows anytime.

What's causing that dip is stores putting everything behind glass. You have to get help to buy anything - and often that help will take ten or nearly twenty mintues of standing around. Who has the keys? *shrugs* This has been hurting sales, not able to randomly buy.

since dvd in ways sell less then blu rays
My local stores - Blu-Ray is barely present, DVD is king.

Re: Wal-Mart Bargains Thread #2

Yea, seen videos where the media was behind glass door and was like wow lol. so guess if they keep locking up media and u gotta wait to get then some or many gonna say f**k it and check cell and order as scan barcodes to get it online lol. that what some or many do use store as showroom and order stuff online and not in store sometimes. i have got stuf from aisle sometime but most time from bins any. i check the bins anytime i by chance can go and check any or just get from dt or biglots or anyplace i know it cheaper lol. but have a lot not even watchd yet so never really in rush to get new unless check when need get other needs by chance. but i get a mix of dvd and bluray sometimes if with dvd any. and 4k is the new blu ray to me so no rush to get 4k unless by chance see at dt any lol from what i have read sometimes.

This is where we really disagree. No such thing as having too much, pending.

Re: Wal-Mart Bargains Thread #2

I have noticed some Walmarts basically locking up their entire UHD assortment. I guess theft rates on them are fairly high. If you scavenge on eBay, you'll notice an amazing amount of media correlates well to what Walmart currently carries.

But I think locking everything up depresses sales. I dread bringing something up to the cashier in a case because half the time they have no idea how to get it unlocked without assistance.

Re: Wal-Mart Bargains Thread #2

A little off-topic. I guess the Walmart in my town has a problem with theft of mostly cheap bicycle related items.
They had most of the cheap items locked up in a security case and I needed a few $5 bike tubes, Had to call someone and it took forever.
And the employee had to bring them up to the check stand for me to purchase.
I'm sure whoever is steal this crap just moved on to something not locked up.

I did not even check the media on my visit. Next time..

Re: Wal-Mart Bargains Thread #2

It's my understanding the majority of thefts at Walmart are inside jobs aided by employees.
