My Best Buy gift cards will just have to keep smoldering in my pocket for a while longer. Nothing, at all for me this week to buy. Just Machete down for a rental. That is it. But i am OK with nothing to buy. I bought to much in December, and most of what i got, still needs to be watched. Thanks for the Round-up anyway Mike. Hope you had a good New Year!

I was in Target yesterday and they had the shelf tag for Sherlock Holmes up.  Nothing on the shelf and I thought it was a bit odd.  Now it makes sense. BB.com still has 372 BD's on sale.  I'm not sure if the site hasn't cycled over to being "next week" yet; a lot of those titles look exactly the same as last week.  There's lots of HBO stuff, Planet Earth, cheap A Team, Supernatural S5, Breaking Bad...  If I had a spare $300, I'm sure I could find stuff I "wanted."  But dang nabbit...I'm trying to be an adult now with adult financial goals for the year.  And it's never too early to start. Backdraft, Hope Floats and possibly Ever After when the prices come down.  Way too high for catalogue stuff I won't watch for 6 months.

Costco usually brings in extra inventory of DVD's for the holidays, then cuts back their selection after Christmas. I was in there one year after the holidays when several associates were boxing up about 2/3 of the DVD inventory to be returned. Maybe they do the same thing on the website and have just pulled it down until they determine what they're keeping in stock and what they're sending back? Either that or their website is just buggy. I had a couple of things bookmarked when I was still comparison shopping for Christmas. Some days the pages would be unavailable, then a couple days later it would be back.

Looking at the Target ad, these are regular DVDs, not Blu-Rays, with the possible exception of The Dark Knight which shows a Blu-Ray package. Each of the others when viewed online, shows DVD when you click the package to view details. The Dark Knight doesn't have any details available when you click it.

Jason:  Thanks for the correction.  I will make the change in the OP.  I guess I wasn't paying attention.  I appreciate it.

Oh.  And, by the way, I still did not get a Sunday flyer for Best Buy in my local paper today.  So, I am clueless. I'm really going to have to start registering complaints with the newspaper company.  This is becoming a standard practice.  I can't tell you how many times I have had to travel around the area to find the ads I need.

Best Buy almost isn't worth the effort anymore. I can't remember the last time I actually bought a disc there.

Pretty much. Their sale prices are still good (like last week's TV sale) but the last time that I bought something at Best Buy during its week of release was Psycho back in October or September. At Target and Amazon in the same time period, I spent hundreds of dollars.


Hopefully, BB.com's price on The Social Network ($17 for the Blu-ray and $13 for the DVD) is what they'll actually be charging in store next week.

Looks like the new year blew Ultimate Electronics' online Weekly Ad function. (No ad available on their website). Update: Went there. No sales at all, unless you count Lethal Weapon for $9.99 as a sale. Since that is its usual price, I don't. There wasn't even a sales table set up. I also went to Best Buy and it is a joke. Their micro-shelf of "BluRay on a Budget" titles all shot up in price, with most of the $10 BluRays now priced at $20. Even a title like Princess Bride which has been $15 at Target forever, and $10 online forever, is $20. Granted they still have a standee cardboard bin of $8 BluRays like Charlie's Angels and Labyrinth. But for the most part it is as if the concept of post-holidays sales, and even "BluRay on a Budget", has left the building.

What did we do to deserve this kind of dedication?!  As always, it is much appreciated.  Nothing for me this week, I have some returns to make at Best Buy, so I'll be having soem store credit to use in the next few weeks.  Hopefully the release calendar gets a little better!  Happy New Year, all.

The previous guy retired and we all promised Mike we'd get him back on the Best Buy coupon mailing list if he took over (I can't believe he fell for it).

If you're sure that's the price you want -- pre-order it for store Pickup.   Maybe Amazon will match it or not, but I think I'll take my chances with BB for the moment and

cancel before picking it up if somebody comes up with a better price.


Dang -- should have known I spoke too soon and Amazon just matched BB price.  Now I have to go cancel my preorder to save tax and gas.

^ If Amazon is matching Best Buy's price, that's probably the price in BB's ad.

Eight years?!?!?! Seems like it's only been half that. Where has the time gone (and my hair, for that matter). I was 26 when you took over for Dave.


And even though I don't buy nearly as much as I used to, I still check the Update every week.


It's bad enough I'm approaching the 10-year anniversary of my registration, and I was reading the site for a couple of years before I felt compelled to respond to a post and needed to register.


This calls for an "oy".

Time flies when we're having fun!  Thanks for all that you do.
