Default Got Some New Releases At BB/ Got Ripped Off/ Life is Good!

Long time lurker, first time poster.
Just got back from my BB. had to make the lady go in the back and look through the boxes to find the new movies. They had Pan's Labyrinth and Eastern Promises, and The Kingdom. Didnt have any Timecops or Cat Pepole.

You can go back for sure and demand they really teach their employees to do better cust service and inform you of any sale going on. Go back and they should give you a third title for free.

I'm not sure about Cat People, but Timecop is available only through Best Buy's online store. That is what they told me when I asked about it as well.

Well actually, their advertisement lists Pan's Labyrinth as being $32.99 not $34.99, so you did still pay $2 extra.

I think I know what happened here. Same thing happened to me today except I knew about the offer. The computer didn't give me the promotion at the register, so I asked the person there why not. She didn't know about it so she asks this other employee and he mentions the part about "Free Discs must be of equal or lesser value, $34.99 or less". Apparently the combination of prices for the movies I wanted would not work out properly for me to be able to get one free (Eastern Promises - $29.99, Hot Fuzz - $29.99, Stardust - $34.99). I needed to get two movies at 34.99 or all three at 29.99 or something like that.

I didn't really have energy to debate with them, so I went straight back home and bought them all on Amazon. I only paid $7 more which is perfectly fine with me.
