Hollywood Video 3 for $25 PVD. NOT!

In the Sunday LA Times is an insert for Hollywood Video showing PVD's at 3 for $25. So I go to my local store and it's 3 for $30, they aren't doing the sale. I call the only other store in my area and they're not doing it either. What kind of BS is this.

marina del rey store has 3 for $25. if you go to a store that has 3 for 30 and mention the ad for 3/25, they'll manually price it for you.

Some stores are franchinse and do not do corporate promotions (Much like BB's no late fee right now). Its just $5, don't need to cry about it. Did you ASK them about it? Sometimes they don't put signs up right away

Um, no . . . there is no such thing as a Hollywood franchise store.

Hollywood has always played the pricing game . . . some stores do this, some stores do that . . . all by corporate order. Hell, Springfield has 3 Hollywoods and they all had different rental prices at one time (99 cents, $1.99, and $2.99).

I have 2 Hollywood videos within 10min, the two closest ones have different deals. One had $3 for 30 and great selection, and one has 3 for $25 but are like a week or two behind with new releaes. Like they dont have friday night lights, just got cellular today, no king arthur, and missing a few others. I just picked up Elf,and cellular for 8.33 each. Buddies got Harold and kumar (rated), they also had without a paddle, and just got avp today(which isnt gonna sell much ).

I don't think he was asking for your opinion on his purchases, cdollaz.

Thanks for your uncanny display of wit, however.
