Default Borders 40% Blu Ray/DVD Box Sets

Borders.com currently has a coupon (today through the 15th) for 40% off up to two Blu Ray Box sets. The coupon code is BDB7496K. Works for pre-orders, too (at least those I checked)!

Now I know that you are thinking....Borders is ludicrously expensive (and they usually are), but sometimes you can find a gem with this coupon.

The example that I'll use is that I'm looking forward to the release of Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood on Blu Ray. Amazon has the set on pre-order for $40.99. I just picked it up at Borders for $28.19.

Maybe that box set you were waiting for will have a similar deal. Good luck!

Bummer. I tried a number of titles before I found a winner.

And honestly, I only think that the FMA BR discs worked because they have the wrong MSRP for the Blu Ray. Everyone else is listing it at $59.98, but Borders has it at $45.99.

Even though I saw it for only $86 (had to check for the lulz when I saw your post), that's still ridiculous. I've never seen anyone mark UP from MSRP before. Maybe I'm just sheltered; then again, I've only been to a Borders once, and that was enough to scare me off for good.

with the coupon, the 3 new Criterion pre-orders, let alone any other existing title comes out to about $25-$26 each, which is the best deal going.
