    For others out there that are skeptical of a great price at a great distance and dont like the idea of having to return anything purchased a distance away from your home in case of problems

    There is Best Buy

    Every 2 to 3 weeks they have a certain brand DVD on sale
    for 20% off
    Paramount,Fox, and so on, this group now on sale not that great but sale if fixing to change this weekend

    Yes, until Feb. 1 BestBuy.com has Fox DVDs under $17.99 on sale for 20% off their normal discounted price.

    I've taken advantage of this deal to order/pre-order some of the Fox Studio Classics for only $11.99: ALL ABOUT EVE, HOW GREEN WAS MY VALLEY, THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, and THE GHOST AND MRS. MUIR.

    Unfortunately, for some odd reason the website doesn't have AN AFFAIR TO REMEMBER, which streets next Tuesday 2/4/03. I e-mailed them asking why and their reply (in typical braindead fashion) was that it isn't available on their website. Duh.

    So, JoeyR, if you are a plant for BestBuy (not that I'm suggesting you are) how about doing something about this for me? [​IMG]

    Im not a plant lol, in my non movie watching time I am a commercial Heating and Air technician,we hadnt had a Best Buy in Louisiana until the past year, my first order from them ,ordered online, picked up in store, got screwed up 3 movies I ordered(that would have to be shipped because of no store stock)I pulled off their shelves in 3 minutes, I complained to the manager(plus the wait in line, was during Christmas)and he gave me 40 dollars off the JVC 900BK DVD changer,so I guess I cant complain

    If you read the fine print, it says "sale excludes preorders". Did it still work? (i.e. $11.99 for An Affair to Remember)

    Yes, if you put any of those Fox titles that are normally $14.99 in your shopping cart, including the preorders, you will see the price changed to $11.99 and that's what you're charged (plus tax; shipping is free). Good deal.

    Cool, I didn't realize that this also worked for preorders. So far, I've ordered all 6 of the fox studio classics from bestbuy. Can't beat the price.
