Special Sales of Classic Titles on DVD & Blu-ray


Recommended Posts

"Laura" can be had on Blu-ray at Costco for $9.99. Not all Costcos seem to have it, and at the Loz Feliz/Glendale warehouse they had only two when I got there. I left the remaining one at the front of the group of Blus there so someone can find it easily. They also still had some of the Hitchcock Blus.

Best Buy has their special "Upgrade And Save" on again starting today and running through May 11, 2013. Bring in any DVD in its original case and they will give you a coupon for $5 off any Blu-ray $9.99 and above. You do not need to get the same title Blu for that title DVD. Any DVD gets $5 off any Blu ($9.99 and above). However, if you take in a multi-disc set, it only counts as one DVD.

 

For example, the Blu-ray of Lawrence of Arabia is currently $9.99. Trade in a DVD and it is only going to cost you $4.99 (plus tax).

filmlover, does BEST BUY actually have classic titles any more? I have not set foot in that store for about 2 years now ever since I had some major problems with them. I opened an account in the store and the first thing that happened was at the same time someone (I believe someone that worked in BB) picked out an expensive computer and charged on my BB card. I went through so much unnecessary stress with that chain. I had to file a police report and it took a long time to straighten things out. BB wanted me to pay the bill for something I never purchase. I never even got a letter from them stating the problems were all straghtened out. I ripped up my credit card from BB and told them to take me off their email list and since then I never purchased a thing from this store. I do think better buys are to be found on Amazon.

I got an email from Amazon for 62% off Shirley Temple volumes. Normally 49.98, now 18.99 each for the three volumes until April 27. I don't know what the catch is, and it doesn't say they are MOD, but something seems fishy. Just in case anybody wants to check these out here's the link:

The three volumes encompass all 18 Shirley Temple films released by Fox so far.

Edge, I would never buy anything electronic from them. If you have a Costco, always buy from them. They are the easiest to deal with if there are any problems.

 

As to classic titles...yes, BB does...but they are BIG classics, usually. Gone With the Wind, Lawrence, etc. Their clientel is mostly young people, so 99% recent films. 1% classic (if that much). But they have had special promotions from studios. Like a selction of titles on Blu from WB for $4.99, including Cool Hand Luke mixed among them. But you won't fight Olive or Twilight there.

 

IFor best selection of classics from a B&M, the best bet is Barnes and Noble.

Word of warning. These sets look just like the Cary Grant Collection featuring his six films owned by the studio. The price (with a discount code) from FoxConnect was good, so I ordered it last week, but it's going back. The paper sleeve packaging is remarkably awful - both volumes arrived with one disc loose and badly scuffed. X-(

I was in the Burbank Costco today and saw they had several of the double bill classic Blus:

 

Casablanca/African Queen (item 766487) $12.99

Ben-Hur/Ten Commandments (766487) $12.99

 

plus the WB triple bill of The Searchers/The Wild Bunch, and How The West Was Won for $9.99

 

and, of course, the King King digibook for $12.99

 

I think the Ben-Hur/Ten Commandments combo is a great bargain. Two tremendous movies on 4 discs.

When you say "they were all on special" do you mean the Olive DVDs and Blu or just Blu? I am only interested in the standard DVDs.

Just Blu-ray.The special is "All Blu-rays 40% off". Cal, give in and just upgrade to a Blu player. They are exceedingly cheap right now and they play DVDs. too, with a better quality image. As the years have gone by, so many more people are buying a Blu player and it is bringing costs way down. I saw one at Costco a few days ago that plays DVDs, Blu-rays, and 3D Blu-rays, and it was only $109.

 

And speaking of Costco...if you are a member, you can buy a Blu player and test it out for a few days. If you don't like it, you can just tell the person at the Costco return desk whatever and they will refund your money in full.

Not this month. I was very bad this morning and bought a bunch of Olives over at cdimports. I hate their outrageous shipping prices but still the total price comes in under what you'd pay anywhere else. Eight films for 99 bucks.
