To keep frugal BD shoppers from having to dig through page after page of special deals, we figured we'd create one, catch-all thread for special deals, discounts and buy-one-get-one free deals. This is only for discussion of special deals and discounts.


IMPORTANT: Include expiration dates, if known, with any new deals you post!!*****

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

Good idea to merge everything....

If these sales keep up, I'm going broke! I've gotten 20 BD's thus far and I'm trying to talk myself out of hitting up another CC this afternoon.

Great Sale! Thank for all posting this info!!! I went to CC today and sure enough all Blu-Rays where half off and HD-DVDs.. They where out of Transfomers so I picked it up on DVD and got extended cut version included as half off as well. Anything they were out of I went to BB and they said they would honor the BOGO, or half off... Guy at BB was amazed when I showed him the receipt from CC.

From CC:
Fugitive BD - $12.50
Last Samurai BD - $12.50
Punisher BD - $12.50
Swordfish BD - $12.50
Transformers Limited Ed DVD - $11.50
Reign Over Me BD - $15.00

BB (price matching)
Underworld BD - $12.49
Ice Age 2 BD - $17.49

Please quote or reference the deal you're commenting on. Maybe use the title bar so we'll know which deal you're talking about since they're all together now.

Thanks

CC is the best. I just picked up 20 HD DVDs and 10 Blu-ray discs. Everything from Lionsgate, Starz, WB, and Paramount that wasn't on sale at Amazon, BB, or Fry's were 2 for 1.

LOL!! Thanks. A lot of members wanted this deal or that deal stickied.. some would be duplicated and others just plain lost. There were a lot of calls to group them all together. We'll see how this format works. It's stickied, so it'll always be front page. Suggestions welcome.

hmmm, before I go into town to hit up circuit city. Are any of the Transporter movies $29.99 at CC ??? at BB Robocop and the Transporters were $34.99 while CC had Robocop at $29.99. I didn't check the Transporter series and would love to snag those as well if they're at $29.99 like robocop instead of the ridiculous $34.99.

The prices seem to vary from store to store. I've seen people get titles for $29.99 at one and $34.99 at another. Seems to be a ymmv thing!

I picked up BD 6 titles yesterday (several posts in those locked threads). Today, I went back to CC to try to pick up Transformers on HD-DVD plus another title. The Million Dollar baby + Transformer did not work on BOGO. I even caused a semi mild fuss and it did not work either . They were adamant that since it was a new release, plus a HD-DVD and BD combo would not work. The manager even referred to their ad which said "certain titles", although he had no clue what those titles were

I tried KoH, which did not work again, since CC has it at 34.99. Oh bugger!!!.

Anyway, I ended up with:

1- Million Dollar Baby: $12.50
2- The Getaway: $12.50
3- The Last Samurai: $12.50
4- Stargate: $12.50

Some of these are not the best movies, but have good HD quality, plus being WB and Lionsgate titles, which are hard to get on sale.

The Encinitas and Vista (San Diego county) CC stores are out of Surf's Up and no The Fly, for now.

To add to the 6 from yesterday:

- Bullitt
- Letters from Iwo Jima
- Fantastic 4 RoSS
- Day After Tomorrow
- Devils Reject
- Enemy of the State

Plus another ten or so Sony titles from Fry's at $9.99, has expanded my BD collection to 65.

Samsung: 52" 850 / 46" 61 / 40" 61 / PS3 / BD-P1500 / A3 HD-DVD / Format Neutral

Just got back from the Manassas, VA store and picked up the last copy on BD of:

- Flags of Our Fathers
- Robocop

I spoke to a manager and discussed TV's first before talking Blu-Ray.....went over to the counter to pay and he started to check the ads....told him the BOGO sale was not in the ads....told him that Best Buy was doing it as well as Target and this was CC's last minute response. Flags was marked at $34.99, but he sold them both to me for $15 each!

I'm done. Thats eight Blu-Ray discs this week.

I picked some up at my local CC at lunch, but they said the sale is BOGO for all HDMedia. They pretty much are more then half way out of stock on all HDM, even players all they had was a few A2, and LG combo players, and half dozen PS3s.

I got Transformers and Half Baked on HDDVD, and got the following on Blu:
DejaVu
Gone in 60 Seconds
Chicken Little
IMAX: Roving Mars
Apocalypto
Flightplan
Weeds Season1
Weeds Season2

Just visited 2 Circuit City stores:

Princeton, NJ (1 endcap BD / 2 endcaps HD DVD)
Mt. Holly, NJ (Massive selection of both formats!!!)

Between both stores I purchased 16 titles:

HD DVD:

Harsh Times
Transformers

BD:

Finding Neverland
Stargate
Dinosaur
Reign of Fire
American Psycho
The Departed
Perfect Stranger
Fantastic Four 2
Premonition
Enemy of the State
The Day After Tomorrow
The Prestige
The Fifth Element
King Arthur

I tried to mix in movies that were over $30 but it was a no go. Associates at both stores knew of the BOGO promotion and knew that it was for ALL HD media over $24.99 but under $29.99.

Another NoVa potential RoboCop store bites the dust!

Still have 3 to call after work, but I'm not holding my breath, though hopefully somebody will still have some other titles to pick from.
