    I was told today by a Blockbuster employee that their next promotion (starting on 9/17) will be buy 2, get 1 free on previously viewed titles. My local store has TONS of previously viewed titles, many for $9.99. Three for $20 wouldn't be too shabby!

    Picked up 9 dvds for @$84:

    Amelie
    Behind Enemy Lines
    K-Pax
    Lara Croft Tomb Raider
    The Last Castle
    The Majestic
    Mickey's House of Mouse Villains
    Return to Never Land
    Zoolander

    Seems like a good deal, but man, those Blockbuster stickers are nasty! I think in the future I might just stick with Columbia House for all but Disney titles, hit the B&M for lowest prices on those.

    I hit 'em up for another 9 titles today for $87:

    The Time Machine
    Men In Black
    Austin Powers
    Austin Powers II
    The Musketeer
    Mulholland Drive
    The One
    Jimmy Neutron
    Stuart Little (gotta get SOMETHING for the kids!!!)

    The stickers are tough to get off, but Goof Off works well. My biggest complaint is the lack of liner notes. Not that I read them very often...but it would be nice to have the choice. But, for less than ten bucks a disc, it's tough to beat!

    Yep, they did have the one copy that I snagged; I was happily surprised to find it!

    Tony, there is a citrus petrolium based product, not goofoff, that stuff is toxic. But goo-off maybe? You can find it at walgreens and such. Should do the trick and not damage the paper cover.

    I picked up a few last night, but am now having second thoughts about Royal Ten-blahblah-baums. It didn't come with the insert. Of course these never do... but that one is cool (I think).

    I got three today for $21;
    Collateral Damage W/S
    Harry Potter W/S
    Tailor of Panama W/S & P/S
    BTW-the $9.99 "buy it after you rent" it deal applies to this too as I recently rented the C.D. dvd, it was $14.99 but I got it for $9.99 [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I think this is a great deal... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Rob TT--I considered the hairdryer but am a bit skeptical, as the sticker that Blockbuster plastered on the paper cover is paper, i.e., not like those laminated-type or smooth-surface ones (don't know exactly what you call them) that seem to peel off a bit more easily.

    nother helpful tip.... use a sharp knife to peel up a corner after either using hot air or goo-gone. Either way, go slowly. I also fold the peeled up corner back over on itself sticky side out (like a dog ear on a book page) and then push the stickey triangle to the opposite corner. Works like a charm.
