Default departed and best buy

just wanted to mention that the departed is on sale for 22.99 on bestbuy.com right now for the hd dvd combo, whereas the blu ray disc is on sale for 29.99. Good news for our format of choice. I was dreading having to pay $40 because it's a combo disc.

just submitted my order for in-store pickup, which i will get tomorrow morning after class. now if i can just finish this essay on "within our gates", i can sit down and watch the deer hunter.

That's interesting given that BB usually doesn't come in cheaper for combo discs..usually they sell them at MSRP. That's good news, but I already ordered from Amazon.

Maybe they will continue this trend in the future.

I also find it interesting that the Blu-ray version is $7 more at BB....weird.

well glad I saw this thread cause I was gonna buy it at CC. Called up BB lady told me it was $29.99, she hung up before I could tell her it's $22.99 online. Just drove up to the store on my lunch break and got the last copy for $22.99, so yeah she lied to me...anyhow, can't wait to check it out tonight. Awesome movie and now with it being HD it's even sweeter!.

I picked up my copy for $22.99 at the Frisco, TX BB.

I talked to a guy who manages several of the stores in my area and he said the sale was a push from WB. Hopefully they will sell a ton and do this for future titles. I wish they had advertised the sale more. There was no sign advertising the sale price and the discs were marked $34.99.

After much trouble, I was able to get it for 22.99. First, I checked bb.com at 10 am and none of the local stores around me had it in stock, so I purchased it from a store thats about 20 min. away. When I got there, they had pulled the 2disc tin SD DVD so I waited another 10 min. for them to find the HD but they told me they only got 4 copies in and were out so while the clerk was processing a refund, they came back again and said they did have it. Thing is, I used a gift card and it takes 24 hours to refund the money so I had to pay cash for it but I don't care, this was a great price and I wanted to watch it tonight rather than wait for Amazon.
