Default Best Buy - Trade your Old DVDs in and get $5 off a select Blu-ray

Good deal for those with small BD collections and lots of extra Blu-rays.

Link
Quote:

Trade in an original, commercially released DVD (no burned copies) with its original case and you'll receive a $5 coupon that's valid on select Blu-ray movies. Just head to the customer service counter at a Best Buy store near you for complete details and to take part.
Looking through the list, even with a $5 discount some of those movies have been cheaper before. But overall, not a bad deal and a good way to boost Blu-ray sales for the lackluster Quarter.

Oh, and Kosty, told ya so

Quote:
Reading other forums, it seems there might be a slight problem:
Coupon valid only on select titles. Limit five coupons per visit. A recycling receipt must accompany the coupon at time of redemption. Once you have received your coupon, if you do not find an applicable Blu-ray movie you'd like to purchase, you will not be able to get your traded-in movie back. Not valid with any other discount, offer or package. Markdown taken from original price. Your original DVD must have been commercially packed and with the original case. Adult content DVDs not accepted. Valid on in-stock Blu-ray movies only. No cash value. Offer valid 5/8?6/4/11.
So they might not work on titles currently on sale. Similar to how they work normal coupons (10/12% off). Might be a YMMV situation.

Looks like Best Buy is getting desperate for some foot traffic in their stores. While this might be a good deal for some consumers, a lot of these discs were previously on sale for much lower prices then the current ones - $5. And if you can't use the coupon on a title 'on sale', it's useless.

So far. I see 2-3 discs I might be interested in if they are cheap enough. Justified looks like a good deal for $15 (minus a DVD). Like $1 cheaper then it was on Release week..

Yeah, well, it'll probably be a YMMV type deal. I'll see how others do it first, since the list would be stupid since many of those titles are already 'on sale' on their website. Men In Black would be $4.99.

That is not Best Buy's regular price for Justified at all. Looks like a great deal for Best Buy. They get to convince people who don't know any better that they are getting a deal, yet still keep most of their ridiculous mark-up, not to mention just getting people in the stores.

I altered it right after I posted. It's currently on sale for $19.99, so a DVD trade-in would be $14.99. Decent-ish, but it was that low (or close to it) on release week. Guess we'll see. I was going to nab Fear and Loathing (Universal), but BB wants $19.99 for it? Haha.

You scored there buckaroo.

Seems like the blu-ray.com thread was accurate enough too. But your info trumped mine here. Congrats.

Whats the time limitations for this promotion?
