I tried CC today after buying a few movies on Tues and no go. The lady wasn't very nice and asked me to come back with my old receipt. Oh well, may try another store.

I went to the CC in Waterford Lakes in Orlando and they support BOGO for the Blu-Ray and HD DVD discs. I picked up Transformers and FF: Silver Surfer for $30 plus tax.

Went to another CC today to try to score a few more titles but they are not supporting the sale of all titles like some stores were. This was in Temecula, CA BTW. I did not care too much because I probably already bought more movies than I should have this week.

Thanks Richard

They've done studies, you know. 60% of the time it works, every time.

Denied! Circuit City in Wilkes Barre, PA don't know anything about a BOGO deal, not even on the Disney movies. So I walked away empty handed.

It was supposedly over yesterday but I was able to pick up
Usual Suspects and Troy DC last night with no problems. I watched the screen and the promotion still showed up on the item line and the cashier had to select it, slide their card and hit enter to activate it. My theory is I think the discount still appears on the screen but ultimately its up to the cashier to whether they put it through or not. So obviously if they were instructed not to they'll ignore the discount and ring it up at full price. I'm going back today to pick up 28 Weeks Later and Top Gun

The cashier at Circuit City in Bel Air, MD could not find any BOGO packages on her screen. I had Fifth Element and Layer Cake in hand. Very disappointed.

With the Transformers from yesterday, I now have 12 HD-DVDs and about 70 BD titles. I guess that I am going to go format neutral and pick up a Toshiba A30 soon, as I had returned that awful Toshiba A2 back in June.

Finally, that was the end of the CC's BOGO sale. The clerk had to discount it all manually, as the computer would no longer take the discount/promo code

Heh, Vista was pretty picked over huh? Me and 3 friends ravaged that place and Esco. Encinitas had nothing to begin with, that store was dead from the start. Their BD/HD selection looked like BBY's from like sept 06.

Sorry to burst your bubble bud, but your "forcing the square peg into the round hole" hasn't revived the deal from the dead.

You just circumvented it, creating your own "deal"

I just got back from BB and they "price matched" KofH, Speed, Devil Wears Prada, Pursuit of Happyness, Alexander Revisited and 40-yr Old Virgin for me.

I guess I could also say the "deal is not dead" by a similar assertion.

HD DVD, I hardly knew you....

The disc toll:
Blu: 85
Red: 107

I just showed them my CC receipt from Monday, pointed out that all of the HD media I purchased from them on Monday was essentially half-off when purchased in pairs - much like BOGO, but that I didn't have to purchase equivalently priced discs and 50% off was applied when I followed the pair rule.

Did, however, leave out "the deal is dead," "was most likely an error" and "only worked for discs under $30"

Not gonna deny it.

I just had to try for myself after reading about all the success stories here.

Deal is definitely dead in Spokane, WA. Strange, considering it was supposed to last until the 20th too..

Fight mediocrity: Insist on BD50 discs for all movies longer than 100 minutes, optimized video encodes that fully utilize the available space, lossless audio track, and new masters for catalog titles!

they've removed the "all titles" BOGO error or whatever it is, at least in my city... i tried a BV+Fox and a Sony+Fox but neither worked. they had to manually enter the BOGO deal in from a sheet of titles that were on sale. ahhh well.

I actually picked some good titles in the Encinitas store at first (the first day that I read about the CC BOGO), before I headed up to the Vista store to pick up some more titles, later on that day.

The first day at the Encinitas store, they were quite well stocked on BD, but when I went back that same evening, I did notice that most of the good titles were already gone. You and your buddies probably got to the Vista store before me, as the gal over there mentioned to me that some guy had come in before and had bunch of titles (mostly HD DVD?). When I went back on the next day to get the Transformers HD DVD, she told me that more people were coming in. In fact on the last day, she told me that she would honor the BOGO as she did the same thing for someone else earlier that day (maybe you?). She did tell me that the computer would not take the code, so she had to manually input it.

I never bothered to go to the Escondido store. CC and BBY stores employees are mostly annoying to deal with (terrible at the Encinitas store), so I quit whilst I was ahead ;-)

encounter a fat dude with glasses in BB tukwila that was really st-pid. He even
called circuit city himself and was told that they still have the deal, I pick up 2 hd dvd
the bourne movies and even he verified it CC still did not honor the pricematch all I want
is to use my 10.00 reward certificate so I can get rid of it, Did not bother to talk
to the manager. So pissed off with st--id sale associate.

Went back to CC and got my bourne movies.

Fry's has BOGO for disney's and sony title movies.

Enjoy HD no matter what......

The manager told me that corporate made a mistake, but they are honoring the sale until the new add comes out. The manager also told me to stock up because it is the greatest deal they have had for BD. Thanks to all.


I too would like to thank the AVS Forum members for the great info.

I had to go to CC last night to return/exchange my TV and I decided to check the HDM section..... again to see if the BOGO was there.
Well, they had the little sign/list(8x8") with $24.99 and $29.99 Blu-ray titles available for BOGO.
I started to pick some titles and one of the CC employees walked by and I asked him if other titles besides the ones on the title were BOGO.
He tells me that all HDM are BOGO.
He hung around the register by the DVD section so I took my discs to him.
All discs rung up full price but then he enters a promotional code of 02 and then the disc is half price.

So, I can only assume that the Manager gave them the OK to do this and it's not in the computer and they must manually enter the 02 Promotional code to get the half price discount. May be promotional code 02 gives anything in the store half price.... dunno but I'm glad I went back and tried again when on Monday, the same store denied my BOGO on any HDM disc and didn't have the sign displayed.
