F.Y.E. B2G1$1 on used Blu-ray DVD with code JAN18B (Expire 01/11/18)

F.Y.E. is running Buy 2 Get 1 for $1 on used Blu-ray DVD again, with code JAN18B (Expire 01/11/18).

You can get close to 33% off if you pick expensive items. Good for picking up those 3D Blu-rays or pricy sets that never go on sale. Before I posted 30% off on entire order last time, there were 8 copies of SpongeBob 3D Blu-ray ($3.77) and after I posted it, it went down to one copy. Some of you were definitely buying from them.

Use Back Stage Pass 466722791433 to save additional 10%. You could get over 43% off buying 3 items. The $1 item becomes 90 cents as well.

You can control what item you want discounted. For example, if you add $20, $20, $20, $10, $10, and $10 in that sequence, you get third $20 and third $10 for $1. So you don't have to worry about getting two $10 items discounted instead of one of the $20.

For this to work out to 30% off discount you have to buy movies that are at least $10. (10+10+1)/30=0.70. If you pick expensive out-of-print anime the discount is bigger. For example, (50+50+1)/150=0.67 or ~33% discount.

If any item is less than $10, you're better off waiting for 30% off promo.

I'm sure there are deals out there, but search is horrible. Feel free to share what you found that is a great deal.

Here are some sample (sorry no time to do the link):

G.I. Joe: The Movie [2 Discs] [Blu-ray/DVD] $11.69
Everest [3D] [Blu-ray/DVD] $11.69
Captain America: The Winter Soldier [2D/3D] [Blu-ray] $12.59
CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR [3D][BLU-RAY][DIGITAL HD] $12.59
Point Break [3D] [Blu-ray] $13.49
Warcraft [UltraViolet] [3D] [Blu-ray/DVD] [2 Discs] $14.40
Guardians of the Galaxy [3D] [Blu-ray] [DTS] $15.29
Ghostbusters: Answer the Call [4K Ultra HD Blu-ray/Blu-ray] [3D] $16.19
Angry Birds Movie [3D 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray] $16.19
Pan [3D] [Blu-ray/DVD] $16.19
Avengers [4 Discs] [3D/2D] [Blu-ray/DVD] $16.19
Avengers: Age of Ultron [3D] [Blu-ray] $16.19
Zootopia [3D] [Blu-ray] [DTS] $17.99 OOP OOS everywhere for new
Iron Man 3 [3 Discs] [3D/2D] [Blu-ray/DVD] $17.99

There are some TV shows that never go on sale and some are priced reasonably.

Last time I got Warcraft, Angry Birds, and Pan for $34 shipped. I got very lucky, I got working digital code for the 5 movies mentioned. I've been getting a very hit rate for digital code from F.Y.E., actually 100% for my past four orders. Unlike goHastings, if a combo set is missing a disc, it's a legitimate reason to return back to F.Y.E.. My Zootopia was missing a DVD and they allowed the exchange.

For those who lives close by a F.Y.E. store, you will notice that their movie inventory has shrunk significantly. Several stores I went moved to a smaller store within the mall. I'm not sure how long they will last but it certainly looks like they are following goHastings' footsteps. Grab whatever you need if they run good promos. Their best sales are B2G1$1 and 30% off.

There are no filters. If you do a search on 3d Blu-ray you'll get 544 items and you can't sort them at all. To make the matters worse, it's quite a challenge to get 3 items at the same price (in order to maximize discount) and over $10 each.

That's why I asked people to share what they're buying because there could be deals out there that we just don't know about. I think we knocked out dozens of 3D titles from Best Buy in the last couple of months. I don't know what else people want. I mentioned 3D because they tend to be higher priced items. I got quite a few TV shows that never go on sale.

This wasn't like couple weeks ago with 30% off. I got SpongeBob 3D for $3.77 and after I posted it seven copies got sold (now 1 left). But with B2G1$1 it's not such a good idea.

That's the thing with this site. There is no deal unless there are stuff you're looking for. I'd start creating a wishlist of things you want and then order them whenever B2G1$1 or 30% off comes. I'm just providing BSP for additional 10% discount, and some suggestions of what I bought in the past. I love this site because you get to gamble on digital code and I have over 90% success rate getting good code, 100% for my last four orders. With Family Video or Redbox, you'll never get the digital code. With FYE you have very good chance. Somehow they get the used stuff and most people don't care about digital code and FYE doesn't take those out which is great. But I think they will become another goHastings in the future.

Sorry forgot to say FYE has minimum $40 for free shipping. But it's not $40, you only need $40 total before any discount for free shipping. You need 3 titles at $13.34 each or higher. Apply the coupon and you get $13.34+13.34+1 and apply BSP 10% diacount, that's about $24.90 for free shipping. If you're picking cheap titles then you should wait for 30% off instead. B2G1$1 doesn't work well for titles under $10 because the discount will be less than 30%.

They changed the website and it was a complete disaster. The search becomes sortable unlike before. But some movies have multiple format lumped into one item (like goHastings did) where you can click Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D or DVD and new or used, but some movies have separate listings for every combination, with no indication which one is new or used on the search result other than guessing the higher priced one is new and lower is used. BSP discount doesn't work, though it could be something they will fix later. They operate on eastern time zone now, it was just past midnight eastern and the B2G1$1 code stopped working and the new promo was already advertised.

Inventory is way off. This morning before the website change, I checked for World War Z 3D, SpongeBob 3D, G.I. Joe Retaliation 3D, and Star Trek Into Darkness 3D. Except for SpongeBob 3D which had 1 copy remaining, the rest of the movies had at least 4-9 copies or more left. I don't think they'd all get sold out in few hours. They were all much lower than $10 and they are not good choices for B2G1$1 and also you'll need a lot more of them to get to free shipping.
