Wal-Mart throws in $100 gift card with Blu-ray player purchase - Page 3

post #61 of 229
At this point I don't think I'd pay $29 for a BDP9000.

Made an unsuccessful attempt to get the MAG with GC at my local wally. They denied saying on-line only.

So is this U.S.A. exclusive?

You mean, from 8th this will be available B&M? I thought they will continue the on-line only.

Where are you located?

So, tomorrow I can buy the sammy 1500 in-store and get the gift card. I will not buy it if I have to get it online with the electronic gc only. Can anyone confirm this?

Go to the Walmart Web site and look at the flyer for the week beginning June 8.

That's my understanding and plan. It was reported by Reuters on Jun 3rd and didn't mention online only. If you go to slickdeals.net and search blu ray players, you'll find a link to the endgadget report and on the bottom of this is a link to the Reuters report. Looks real to me.

Thanks,

There we have it. We just need the WM's to have some Samsungs, Panasonics, Magnavoxes and PS3's in stock for a couple of days.

Just looked at the ad that starts tomorrow. It clearly states free 100 gc with purchase of any bd player. BTW it is on the page titled insert. Mike
post #73 of 229
Now I just need to decide which one I want and give the appropriate hint to my son. I'm leaning toward the Samsung, but haven't ruled out the Panasonic. PS3, I don't want.

Everyone might want to check out the asterisk on the GC offer online. Looks like it says online only. I called local Wally World to ask if it would be available at the store, clerk tried to scan in and was denied.

The online ad says nothing on the front page, but if you go to the electronics page, you will see the asterisk. I'm going to call again tomorrow morning to see if anything changes.

I'm replacing my ps3, there's nothing wrong with it, it's an excellent player but there are no ps3 games I want as my 360 does all that and more, and better. I just want a player that will bitstream not decode internally. My 4308 was not cheap and I'm sure does a better job decoding. So I'll go with the sammy 1500.
post #76 of 229
gja, look at my post a couple up. you have to look at the ad that starts tomorrow and look at the insert page, it's clearly there and is not the electronic gc.
post #77 of 229
I hope you're right, otherwise it's a PS3 for me. I just pulled his off the Walmart site:

Limited quantities available on Gift Cards. For online use only,

This is why I thought it was online only.

No 1500s in my area in WM, all stores have them on order, none scheduled for delivery within the next week. - Eastern MA.

Well, if that's how it'll go down then my choice will have to be the Panasonic and if that's it then I'd have to reconsider the Philips 7200 from CC or RadioShack. Maybe they will have a deal tomorrow. I guess the Magnavox is basically the Philips, but Philips already has firmware/support running and Magnovox doesn't even have their player on it's website. I just need a good and dependable bitstreamer.

Confirmed today that is available at B&M starting tommorrow. I read the instore memo myself. I purchased the only 1500 in my area today and will return and repurchase tommorrow.

Lucky dawg, you

Yep, guess I am officially format neutral. Now I have to decide which HDMI connection is going to change to component as the Onkyo 705 only has 3 HDMI inputs and I have 4 with my A2, 360, 8300HD, 1500.

Awesome news! I picked up the only one on display Thursday, and I love it! Nothing against the PS3, but it's great to bitstream audio to my Onkyo 705. I'll be returning and repurchasing tomorrow as well. I'd be really tempted to keep if even if they didn't have the $100 rebate, but with it it's a no-brainer.

Can anyone confirm the official return policy for electronics items at wallmart...I don't believe 90 days is correct. I tried asking 3 different sales clerks and I got 3 different answers...they seem to be clueless.....I also think the ps3 and the blu ray players are different as far as number of days for returns...anyone ?

Can Walmart just give you the gift card when you go back there tomorrow, or do you actually have to go through the hassle of returning it and repurchasing it?

They told me 15 days when I bought mine yesterday. Doesn't sound right to me, but that's what they said.

I returned a HD DVD player after a couple of months (before they began the return plan). Their online return policy which I presume is the same as the stores...

To get the gift card I believe they have to ring up the sale... at least without standing on their head. So it probably would be easier if you brought in the empty box for scanning.

After calling 10 Walmarts in my area, I finally found one with the 1500 in stock. I bought it yesterday because they only had one available. Will return it today and repurchase for GC. It was also $348.....subtract the GC and you have a $248 blu ray player. I can't believe I paid $550 for my first DVD player back in 1999.
