    Bought a used copy of Sahara WS (2005) today and was surprised to find there's no barcode on the back.

    Did I get scammed or was there a slipcase?

    Seems odd, because they usually put a barcode on the cover insert as well.

    I bought a new WS copy a few weeks back, it has a barcode on the back in the top right corner.

    Alot of time some stores get exclusive two packs where the barcode is only on the box that houses the 2 discs. I see this alot at the wal-mart / sams club chains. Since you bought it used its a good possiblity thats where it originated.

    It's a video store cover, certain rental chains get extra covers for display purposes.

    No UPC's and the proof of purchase tabs are usually removed as well.

    I buy rental stuff all the time from Hollywood Video, but they always have a barcode.

    Also bought bundled movies separately (High School Reunion), but they usually have a blank whitebox where the barcode would be.

    The back of my Sahara has three images that use the entire top area: guys on the ground (16x9 shape on left), Cruz (4:3 shape in the middle), speedboat (16x9 shape on the right).

    No PoP tabs either...hope I don't have a problem trading this in if I don't like it.
