    Sorry for the cross-post, but I saw this thread at DVDTalk, and thought there would be interest here.
    Basically, SOME locations of FYE are selling off for cheap prices ($10-$12) this stuff:

    FYE not only used to be Record Town, but also used to be Camelot and a few other mall-based music stores. The TWEC group took all their mall-based music store chains and changed them to the "FYE" name about a year or so back.

    They have a few stories in my area and are highly overpriced, but good for HTF or OOP titles because no one ever buys from them. Never seen "used" ones though out of the 3 stores they have.

    The FYE in the Galleria in Dallas doesn't sell used dvd's either...and they are VERY expensive on their new ones ala Sun Coast.

    FYE = overpriced, indeed!
    However, at least one of our local FYE stores has been mixing in used CDs at their location...but no sign of any used DVDs.
    Too bad, cuz I buy quite a lot of used DVDs! [​IMG]

    The deals continue. . .Friends 1st season for $35. Also, 200-CD binders on sale for $15! (That ends today, I think, but one of the brands is regularly marked down to $20 anyway, which is still great.)

    I haven't found any mall locations that sell used DVDs, but the Coconuts location across the street from one of the malls does. I found little to get excited about, although I would have picked up the anime Metropolis for $12.95 in a heartbeat if I didn't already own it.
    The store is right by work, so I may have to keep an eye on it for future deals. Someone wants to unload The Devil's Backbone, I just know it! [​IMG]
