Special Buys, Discounts and BOGO MASTER THREAD: Put all special deals here!! - Page 8  

post #211 of 3268
If you don't want any of the BOGO titles try this: I went to Best Buy bought 2 of the BOGO titles:Pearl Harbor and Pirates. Already had Pirates(nothing else i wanted from the BV BOGO) so i went back the next day to exchange it, clerk said to go pick out what you want instead. Picked up Mission Impossible III(not part of BOGO) and he did an even exchange, no hassle.

Sounds YMMV. Did they look at your receipt?

this is a big YMMV because most of the stores will deny that.

he looked at the receipt and didn't say a word. What's YMMV?

I'm going to grab a few from Sony's BOGO on Sunday hoping it will count for this weeks sales data.

Ad shows Into the Blue, Layer Cake, Geisha, Black Hawk down, Patriot, Hellboy, 5th Element and Flying Dragon.

It says "look for more BD discs in store. not valid on titles above $34.99"
post #221 of 3268
Silly question:
How do you guys know what tomorrow's BB add contains? I was going to buy a couple of discs at $14.99 today at BB, but will wait till tomorrow if they will be BOGO. If they aren't I am back to $19.99 on amazon.

Dom

BB's ad is ususally shown on slickdeals.net on Thursday or Friday before the effective date. You can see it there now.

Well, Fry's BOGO ended yesterday and the Circuit City that had BOGO on Thursday did not have them last night.

I can only speculate that the BOGO was a one time/week sale and wouldn't expect another one tomorrow/next week.

Also, you can buy them at BB today and return them tomorrow if unopened if they happen to have another BOGO. This way you're covered either way.
post #226 of 3268
unfortunately they are the same 6 or 7 discs that have been on sale all last week for just about every stinking store. and Frys had them for 9.99 apiece.
post #227 of 3268
post #228 of 3268
i'm going broke bought all these in one week and before all the sales really only 2 of them would of been bought

post #229 of 3268
The BB ad doesn't show BOGO, it says 2 for $30, which is what's going on right now anyway.
post #230 of 3268
It's hard to tell, but it looks like the ad indicates the 2 for $30.00 sale includes discs under $34.95. Can anyone tell if this is correct? The footnote indicated 1 and 2 had to do with the 5 free discs. 4 had to do with purchase of one of the Toshiba sets. I couldn't find the corresponding 3 on the page, so I figured it might be for the 2 for $30.00 sale. Anyone know for sure?
Thanks,
Dom

Sorry, no go. Note 3 refers to the 2 free disks with the HD DVD player on the facing page. These are to be selected from disks $34.95 and under.

From what deal did you get the Blu-ray Starship Troopers?
post #233 of 3268
Well, I went in tonight to exchange Jay and Silent Bob as I forgot I ordered it on the Amazon.com BOGO and saw the BOGO sign still up on the isle. I picked up an exchange and figured, "What the hell" and grabbed a few more and went to the counter.

I asked if the deal was still going and he said it ends tonight. Sure enough, he did the exchange and took my other two and did the half off bit on each disc. We talked for a minute and wished this was on HD-DVD's too and said that Blu Ray got an awesome deal. Told him to hold on and went back to see if I could squeeze some FOX titles in there. Started off with Courage Under Fire and Speed (both $34.99 titles). He went in and did the deal. "DAMN!!!" Told him to hold on again and grabbed X-Men 3 and Flight of the Phoenix (again, both $34.99) and he rang it up. All four FOX titles came in at $17.49. Hot damn! I should have picked up more, but didn't want to push my luck (2 extra trips!). And in between all this he said it's only good on the titles listed...

And yes, for those who doubt, I can produce the receipt.
post #234 of 3268
Congratulations!

I would have liked to get more titles myself, but I've run into the problem of the remaining available titles not being interesting to me. I've been collecting used and sale titles for a couple months and it's become more difficult now -- too many titles are not a good fit! Again, congratulations on finding a store that would play along !

Didn't see this when I searched, so here it is. Got a free movie just for watching 30 minutes of crap.

You left out the part about how this is intended as product education for retailers and industry types. That is great for them, but it doesn't do anything for the other 95% of AVSers. Unless you are suggesting we should all lie?
post #239 of 3268
Hey,

Seems like anyone working at a retailer that sells Blu Ray discs would qualify. I bet that's lots of people here.

80GB PS3 is sitting at 474.99$ (5% off) in the quick picks section for me. Hopefully some others will also have this in their QP section. This is Sunday's QPs, btw.

I'm still holding out for WM to hopefully drop the 60GB model's price before I bite (with 20% off - hopefully they'll last until December when I can get that), but this is a decent deal considering it was 599.99$ just a week ago.
