I just checked my order on the regular BB site for an A2 that was backordered and they have adjusted it. It now shows the A2 quantity 0 and has a HD-DVD with sku 8494435 listed as quantity 1 for the same price (still backordered though). I did a search on that sku and the A3 comes up!

Hot damn, I just checked my order and found the same thing. That means we get the A3 plus 9 movies for only $100!!!

I think you only get 7, not 9. 2 in the box and 5 MIR.

Wow, that's amazingly awesome of Best Buy. I wonder if it's intentional or a mistake. Good luck!

If you don't have an HDMI receiver then that is actually a horrible deal. A3 = no DTS encoding!

Well, I have the Denon 3808ci so this is actually a damn good deal for me.

Good luck with that. BB already lost $100 on your sale. The original deal is that you get two of your pick when you order the player. Since you didn't pick the movies when you order, you're SOL.

This is a 2nd unit for me. Gonna be hooked up to a bedroom set with no SS, so an A3 would be nice.

Wait, I'm lost. How do you get an A3 plus 9 free movies for $100? The A3 is listed for $199.

You are absolutely right. I was partially kidding when I made the comment above. The A3 would not be a good choice for someone with an older receiver. That being said, I think I should take my own advice and spend the money I saved on the player to buy a decent HDMI 1.2 receiver.

OK A3 and Yammie VX-661 should make a nice combo don't you think?

We ordered the A2 yesterday from Best Buy's site and they have now changed it to the A3 in our orders. So we're getting the A3 now but for the A2's special price.

The topic of this thread is about BB fulfilling online orders of A2 yesterday for $99. Not the new order of A3.

I hear if you fly through the roof in Plano - it's cheaper to fix the damage afterwords

I actually live north of Frisco, like north of 380 so it wouldnt apply to me. We're getting a large influx of ex-Planoites in my neighborhood.
