    Incidentally, all pre-viewed video games are $3 off. That might be a new one for BB.

    Just got back from BBV:

    Picked up the following:
    Minority Report WS 2-disc
    Ice Age 2-disc SE
    Signs Vista Series.

    Would be waiting to buy The Bourne Identity when it makes it onto the PV rack in a month or two, but that's FS only at BBV. Almost bought Count of Monte Cristo and a couple others, but I already have those on order from Columbia House.

    I asked for regular cases instead of their stupid locking security cases (I think they've come to expect this from me at my local Blockbuster now...). None of the three DVDs came with inserts, but the two double cases they gave me had Minority Report inserts in them (so I've got an extra one I'd be willing to send off to a fellow HTF'er for the cost of postage and sturdy envelope - email me or PM me if interested).

    Didn't see much at my store. Signs and Unfaithful (P&S). I was looking for About A Boy, anyone see it for sale used yet?

    I picked up about a boy last week at Blockbuster for 9.99
    It was the only one I saw. It may have been put out ahead of schedule.
    All the previously viewed at Block are full screen versions,
    but it looked ok on my widescreen tv.

    Interesting..

    Last night I purchased:

    Minority Report 2 disc DTS - WS
    Signs - WS

    Some of the others I wanted were only in FS so I opted not to purchase them. However, I was tempted by the xXx WS.

    I was happy to pick up:
    The Royal Tenenbaums (Criterion collection)
    The Mothman Prophecies
    Insomnia
    Panic Room (Superbit)

    for $9.99 Cdn each...I saw "The Majestic" for $7.99 Cdn, but I still couldn't bring myself to buy it.

    Love those pre-viewed DVD sales!

    Picked up Minority Report today. I have never seen the movie, so I figure its a win/win for 10 bucks.
    Thanks for the heads up. All they had in the store was one little sign saying "All pre-viewed movies $9.99"

    My local Ballbuster must be an independent store (Which could explain Widescreen ONLY versions) so they don't participate in these type of sales. I did pick up Panic Room for $9.99 though.

    Picked up "Minority Report" and "Signs" here in Puyallup, WA for $9.99 each + tax.

    I wanted "Unfaitful" also - but I'm not ever buying that Full Screen only crap [​IMG]

    I picked up the following at Blockbuster :

    Signs
    Spiderman
    K-19
    Minority Report
    Brotherhood Of The Wolf

    All five titles were in mint condition but no inserts were included. I bought all 5 for 49.95 + tax. I wanted Insomnia but Blockbuster only had Insomnia in full screen [​IMG].

    The $9.99 deal is over, at least for now.

    Anyone have any scoop on what/when BB's next sale will be?

    (Hopefully the "Buy 2, Get 1 Free" deal?) [​IMG]
