Neither of the 2 closest stores to me got anything new for this coming week.
Would have been nice with the sale.

Re: Big Lots Part 8 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

Checked 3 stores (Colonie, Amsterdam, Utica NY) stores over the last couple days, they all have pretty much the same stuff(nothing different than what's been posted). Saw a couple box sets mixed in with the $5/$6 DVDs at the Utica, NY store though.

Didn't find House Arrest at any of them, then went on line and noticed there are more than one of the same title...for those of you who found it, was it the one with Jamie Lee Curtis?

This should be today thru the 14th from the e-mail ad I received and posted about before. And you confirmed my thoughts--it's not a public sale from ads, but rather a Buzz Club promotion and it would just ring up this way. I was actually at a store this morning looking for the $6 sets and thought I'd bring 5 DVDs up to the register to see if they'd ring up this way. I literally walked out empty handed when I had a horrible time trying to come up with 5 titles I wanted.

What made matters worse was this store's display was a mixed collection of $5 titles, $6 two-packs and now $9 three-packs and such. It was very difficult to just browse the $3 selections, even more so to find something of interest that I didn't already have.

Horse Racing Fans!!!!!

I was in a BL today and something caught my eye... an ESPN three pack for 3.00, on one side was And 1 Mixtape X, the other was Sportscenter Year in Review 2006. In the middle was Ruffian. I almost bought this when it came out at walmart but it was 14.99 and that was lower than on-line stores. I remember checking like over a year ago and no online store had it listed so I figureded it was OOP which I guess it is. The extras look really good.

I confirmed the same thing with the manager at mine today. We tried 5 $3 titles and it wouldn't work. I'm curious if anyone knows if the people who were targeted for this limited promotion were big spenders or small spenders?

Yes, I hate the way everything is mixed together too. I've mentioned it a few times at the store, but I doubt they'll ever do anything about it. I noticed more titles I've seen at $3 now marked at $5. I assume they don't resticker them so newer batches get higher prices. I'm just too cheap to buy anything over $3, so if they creep all the $3 titles up to $5 then I'll buy about as many $5 DVDs from Big Lots as I do $5 DVDs from Walmart (i.e. very few).

Hawaii Five-O (Season 3)
J*A*G (Season 5)
Matlock (Season 2)
Melrose Place (Season 5)
Mork & Mindy (Season 2)
Odd Couple (Season 2)
Police Squad (Complete Series)
Sabrina (Season 4)
Seventh Heaven (Season 5)
Seventh Heaven (Season 6)
Twin Peaks (Season 2)
My store had that same list as above except they also had:
Cheers (Season 9)
Hawaii Five-O (Season 6)
Hawaii Five-O (Season 7)
Joan of Arcadia (Season 1)
Magyver (Season 4)
Mission Impossible (Season 5)

And they did not have Hawaii Five-O Season 3, Happy Days S4, Love Boat, or 90210. The Perry Mason I saw didn't look like a series but some movie.

What a WEIRD selection of titles. I bought many of them even though I haven't watched HFO or MI for decades, nor have I ever seen CSI, Joan of Arcadia, Sabrina or 7th Heaven. Besides the ones I already had, I skipped JAG, Matlock, and Magyver (every time I hear Matlock I think of Abe Simpson and every time I hear Magyver I think of Patty & Selma). The reason I bought so many: my buy first, decide later policy. The receipt says I have until Jan. 15th to decide, so I'll wait until I get some time in December to read reviews first. It would probably be tough for me to jump into Sabrina or 7th Heaven, for instance, without having seen the prior seasons. The cynic in me says that Knowing Jan. 15th is the return deadline, I think it's a safe bet we won't be seeing any more 20% off days until at least Jan. 16th. How I'd love to get 20% off on these.

Has anybody found any of the other seasons? In other words, is each store getting basically the same weird selection or are stores getting different seasons? So far it looks mostly the same.

Melrose Place S5 was just Vol. 1 (separated) at my store, so I didn't touch it.

I am not sure. I am an in between spender to be honest. I assumed everyone in the buzz club got the email.
I received the email from them it was a black friday buzz club special that ran 12-14. there were 9-10 thing listed besides the movies and it stated they were no clip coupons just had to scan the reward card.

If I stumble upon these box sets, I'd give thought to earning my discount and redeemeding it during the same visit.

I'm not sure how long exactly it takes for the 20% discount option to be added to one's account. If I remember correctly, on the day I made my 10th purchase I went home less than an hour later and checked my Big Lots account online and saw that the purchase was credited to me I had the 20% reward available. So I went back to Big Lots later that day and used it.
Keep in mind that if you use the 20% on a day in which you've not made a qualifying purchase the 20% off purchase counts as a qualifying purchase as long as the final total is $20+.

Wow! There are some really good titles in those lists of TV sets! I went by the one and only store within 70 miles here only to come up empty handed... but I alerted the checkers and stockers to be on the lookout for me!

MELROSE PLACE Season 5 was released in two separate sets (Vol 1 and Vol 2) not as one unit so they are not going to be bundled together for a Big Lots overstock sale that's for sure. I would gladly pay $6 for half a season of this - I've never seen it anywhere for under $20 even in past Black Friday / Christmas /25 percent off sales. I only have the first three seasons but nothing after that has ever been substantially discounted anywhere before from what I've seen.

I went to my local Big Lots and they FINALLY got several of the Paramount titles - SORRY WRONG NUMBER, LIPSTICK, BAD COMPANY, FANCY PANTS, A NEW KIND OF LOVING, etc. for $3. I only bought SWN; I bought FP and BC years ago.

Re: Big Lots Part 8 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

Well, thanks to skees53's list which shows a bunch of other good titles, it now appears that stores are getting different batches (reminiscent of those Warner $3 and $6 box set sales long ago), so I'm going to try to swing by the other 4 Big Lots in my normal travel paths in the next few days. I don't have time to drive around town to all of them on the same day, so I'll probably go to 1 each day as I'm doing other errands. There's nothing worse (to me) than making a special trip somewhere and coming back empty-handed.

Re: Big Lots Part 8 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

2 updates:

1. Pearl (Tacoma WA) gave me bad info on the phone. They had a new batch of $3 Sony/Columbia's with a new yellow price tag. Either weak titles or else they were picked through by the time I got to them.

2. The $2 add says limit of 10. First store i went to let me buy 15 (all that I tried to buy) & the 2nd store would only go $2 on the first 5.

Re: Big Lots Part 8 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

I'm part of the buzz club but i didn't receive the email about the 5 for $10. I'm just wondering if this deal is available through all the stores this weekend. I would like to take advantage of this tomorrow.

That's interesting. The header of the e-mail does say:

These offers are exclusive to the Buzz Club Rewards™ account associated with "[email protected]" and are not transferrable.
If it will help anyone, I copied the DVD part of the e-mail ad below (had trouble trying to get the whole page to copy).



When you click on the "tell me more" link, it just takes you to the normal DVD ad/section of their site.

I do suspect it's tied into individual id's, which would explain the 5/15 split I got, even though the add says limit of 10 they likely set it for 20.

Re: Big Lots Part 8 - List your FINDS here (NO trades)

I found some of the $6 TV sets. I noticed that they ring up as "DVD PARAMOUNT BF TV." I wonder if the "BF" stands for Black Friday and they may be in their Black Friday ad.
