Thanks for that reminder this morning, Tony.


I went this route as it turned out I would NOT be able to get to the store today.  I've gotten notification that my disc is waiting for me...AND I even had a $10 RZ certificate to use on the purchase!  Posted Image

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

I ordered my Mission Impossible from Best Buy Online, free shipping, just had to pay tax. They had the 3-disc BB edition for $19.99, with the simple designation "Best Buy" in the name. They also had a non Best Buy version for $22.99....I presume this is the 2-disc version. Why anyone would want it, I don't know.

Glad to help Mike. I did it this way too. I was still able to get there around 10:30 though and there were dozens of both versions on the shelves.

Thank you, Mike. Just sorry I couldn't have had them up earlier before you compiled the grid. I'll have next week's The Organizer up later today (hopefully).

As much as the nascent OCD in me likes to look through the rack and find the copy without the busted or dented cardboard outside cover, I've been going this route for all of the Best Buy exclusives lately. When I picked up my copy of Ghost Protocol yesterday after work, I was shocked at how small the Mission Impossible display was. Best Buy puts in the minimum effort for media product these days. The focus is clearly on the higher markup items.

The last Disney display (Lady and the Tramp) was an embarrassment.  I mean, the thing was there, but it had so little on it.

My local BB had an entire display filled with Ghost Ptotocol. Normally it has all the new releases and sale itmes in it but not this time. Also there were plenty more on another display too. I want to get a pristine cover too so if the one they give me isn't I just say I'll be right back and go get one that is perfect. Sometimes I just bring one over with me just in case.

I'm not sure why, Adam...but I strolled through the CD section tonight at our local Best Buy (Adam & I are neighbors) and it was even more embarrassingly empty than the DVD/Blu section.  I'm spending a lot more time (anytime I'm in Crossgates) at FYE looking for bargains.

Mine too. The movie and CD sections seem to be stabilized lately, size-wise. The video game department is still bigger than either.

FYE is really hit and miss, in my experience; I've gotten some really great deals there from time to time, particularly for TV on DVD, but its day-to-day pricing tends to be significantly higher. I don't know if you go to the Target where Northway Mall is, or if you just stick with the one across the river, but when they moved their media section to the back of the store, the selection there really took a hit as well. Downloads and streaming must be really taking a bite out of the market to the point where it's just not profitable to use up a lot of floor space on some entertainment.
