Default Anyone make it to a Fry's yet?

Just wondering if anyone has actually visited the store this morning to see if they have more on sale besides the crap in the Friday ad. Don't want to waste a drive for those titles that can be had on amazon.

Haha, we've already established that Fry's sale is a suckfest. Don't worry about it.

Thanks. I wasn't sure it that was determined based on the ads or if someone actually visited a store.

Huh? A 'suckfest'? Wow, that's mature.

I got there, bought 2 $10 titles, 'The Amateurs' and 'Manchurian Candidate'. There were maybe a dozen more at that price including the 1st 2 MIs, but I can't remember any titles. The $10 titles are mixed with all others, so one has to look thru all of them.

Basically, it's all Paramount titles that are marked down. anything that was $19.99-$24.99 are now $9.99. anything 26.99-29.99 is either 16.99 or 19.99. This is a permanent reduction, not just til tuesday. The Dept Mgr confirmed it as well.

Yes, a 'suckfest'. Considering that all of those HD's have been on sale at either Amazon or DeepDiscount.com I would say 'suckfest' is the perfect term.

Websters thesaurus: Suckfest = lamefest, weaksauce, stupid sale, poor, unsatisfactory, dry, unsubstantial....I guess you could use one of those, but myself I choose..........

SUCKFEST

Thanks mate!

That is not entirely true in my local Frys. I was there yesterday and the $9.99 price is very limited. I came home with nothing.

Even sadder is that I checked the BD section and the old movies that were $19.99 or even $14.99 and were sold as BOGO are now $22.99 with no sale at all.

Too bad for those that waited for the war to be over, they missed out on all the excellent deals.

Suddenly, HDM is not as exciting as before.

I envy you. I bought mine for $299.99 plus free The Kingdom and Eastern Promises. I had 3 days after the HD DVD dead announcement from Toshiba to return it but I was afraid that I might not find an HD-A35 again because only 2 BBs close to me carry them and they were always out.
