Re: Recommendations for Star Wars videos

Sorry if I was confusing. I am willing to buy DVD or blu-ray for a modest price, but we just got rid of the VCR player and I don't want to go back. We are casual movie watchers, so we are ok with less-than-perfect sound and video quality, in exchange for a low price on a set. I do want all 6 movies,...

Recommendations for Star Wars videos

Yeah, I know the sets out there suck. But I have kids who have never seen the movies, and I don't want to go back to VHS. So, any recommendations for a cheap way to get all 6 movies, preferably as close to the original cut as possible? We are not huge audio- or techno-philes, so a slightly less than...

Re: Does anyone else go just to go?

I like the thrill of the hunt, and staying up all night and half the morning. Now I've got my kid into it, too :D

Re: Your BF budget

Smaller budget this year, mainly due to belt tightening. There are no big ticket items on our must have list this year, and we'll be giving a lot of "essentials" this year - clothes, shoes, replacement kitchen items, etc. We need to replace some tile in our bathroom this year, and put in a...

Re: Shopping more sales now b/c BF sales not so enticing?

I agree the sales seem more spread out over the week before BF this year, and hopefully afterwards as well. I kinda like it that way, actually. I will still be out there on Friday (actually, late Thursday night for the midnight sales), mainly because my 11 year old daughter is crazy-excited to go. S...

The Wii fit has a balance board to stand on, so your wife may enjoy it, but I suspect you would not be able to use it. There are other games that can be played seated. I recommend reading reviews on the games before buying them, to see how they work and if they are what you really want. For example,...

We have a mix of brands ourselves, and i suggest you check out the reviews of the sets you are thinking about buying. One thing to watch for is how easy the remote fits into the accessory - some work better than others. We have two styles of steering wheels, and they both work fine for us. Have fun,...

Some stores have a restocking fee for categories of merchandise, even when unopened. I try to remember to check policies before I buy electronics for this very reason, but I have been caught a couple of times like the OP. I just figure it is the cost of being a customer.

Also - Just Dance for the Wii is the Amazon Gold Box Deal of the Day today (12/1). That is a good price, if you are looking for a dance game.

That will probably be a good sale. The only required accessories for two people are two remotes and two nunchucks, and these days I'd make sure the remotes are the plus ones. So if you bought a package with Resort, you only "need" to by two nunchucks and one $20 plus add-on (Resort comes w...

krazymop, when we get duplicate or unwanted gifts without receipts, we re-gift them to another kid on their birthday. Works pretty well, for the most part - I don't have to do a return, and I don't have to shop for yet-another-birthday-present.

Ok, I got the code to work again for me by logging in as guest. I wonder if the second try failed because I had already used it. Oh well - I was able to snag Wizard of Oz/Close Encounters of the Third Kind for $16 total. Threw in a cookbook I've been wanting to bring it over $50 for the free shippin...
