5 Below Bargains

A 5 Below store recently opened in Cranberry, PA, and I was rather impressed with some of the bargains that they had available. The gist of the store is that everything is within the $1-5 price range. Here's what I found, YMMV:

Blu-Ray:

- Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

HD-DVD/DVD:

- 300
- Justice League: New Frontier
- The Reaping
- The Invasion
- Evan Almighty

DVD:

- Best of She-Ra (2 Disc Set with Secret of the Sword)
- New Adventures of He-Man (Volume 1)
- Defenders of the Earth (Volume 1)
- Shrek the Third
- Madagascar
- Clerks II
- Evan Almighty
- Apocolypto
- Snow Day
- TMNT
- Golden Compass
- MISC Sponge-Bob DVDs
- How the Grinch Stole Christmas
- Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer
- Frosty the Snowman
- The Rudolph and Frosty movie

I know they had quite a few more, but I can't recall everything they had available. They also had a decent selection of Game Boy Advance games and a couple XBox/XBox 360 games. Here's their official website.

The Franklin Mills Mall, PA store has the two-disk DVD versions of Batman (1989), Seven, and Enter the Dragon for $5 each. Also Jackie's Chan's Police Story, although the UPCs are gouged.

Re: 5 Below Bargains

I thought there was already a thread for Five Below but I can't find it.

I picked up Hard Boiled (2-disc Dragon Dynasty DVD) for $5 at the Portsmouth store last weekend. Nice!

Also saw these HD DVD/DVD Combos for $5:
The Brave One
ATL
We Are Marshall

By any chance was Seven the version in a snapper case?

This was the (excellent) two-disc Platinum Series release.

It's unlikely to still be there by this point--it's disappeared from the NJ stores that I've recently visited.

They are much better in theory than in reality.

Re: 5 Below Bargains

The good news: Inside the Cherry Hill, NJ store is a rack with about two dozen $5 Criterion DVDs.






































The bad news is that every single one is Chasing Amy.

Still, hopefully there'll be more to come. They appear to be Canadian copies (Alliance Atlantis logo), and they're definitely not in every store.

Re: 5 Below Bargains

Spotted two new $5 Blu-rays at the Freehold, NJ store:

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
Terminator Salvation

Both have English/French covers and expired digital copies. YMMV as always--I've visited another Five Below that didn't have these.

Agreed...I've been going to my local store occasionally and the dvd selection never really seems to change. There's some decent stuff, but it's always the same.

The selection doesn't change too much at the ones near me and I've never seen a blu-ray title in the mix. Never, dang it.

Re: 5 Below Bargains

Only thing I can comment on recently seeing is The Dark Knight 2-Disc in limited mask packaging, which might have been the Target exclusive with an extra 3rd(digital copy) disc, since I think it had the target sticker on it. At this point might the DC might even be expired though.
