Use Back Stage Pass 466722791433 to save additional 10%. Effective discount with BSP is 32.5% off regular price. Shipping is free for order >$40.

Unlike the discount in the past that only applies to used titles, this discount applies to both new and used.

They revamped the website on Jan 11. No coupon code is required. Price is automatically adjusted with 25% off. Before the website change, the website had one link per format. Now it's like goHastings where every format is grouped into one link and you select the format you want. Another change is the inventory which gt shrunk significantly in the used section. Half of my wishlist are OOS which is impossible because there were multiple copies available before the website change. I seriously doubt someone grabbed them. Anyway, for those 3D collectors, there are quite a few titles that you can't find at Best Buy or they are super expensive. For example, Best Buy is selling King Arthur Legend of the Sword for $42.99. It's $26.32 here. Kong 3D is $24.99 at Best Buy, it's $16.87 here. Lego Ninjago Movie 3D is sold out at Best Buy and Target. Amazon has 18 copies left for $45 each, it's $21.59 here but I doubt they have more than Amazon.

I wouldn't say it's a good deal other than Kong 3D. But I was told they are printing a lot less 3D nowadays. I don't know how much longer F.Y.E. will stay in business. It's possible these will be at fire sale for $10 in the future. But I'm not taking any chance. I bought some of them just in case they go out of print and the remaining go OOS in the future.

Sing [3D][Blu-ray] [fye.com] $16.87
Kong: Skull Island [3D] [Blu-ray] [fye.com] $16.87
LEGO NINJAGO Movie [3D] [Blu-ray] [fye.com] $21.59
Wonder Woman [3D] [Blu-ray] [fye.com] $21.59
King Arthur: Legend of the Sword [3D] [Blu-ray] [fye.com] $26.32

Update: BSP 10% discount is gone. SD effect at work? This is why F.Y.E. will eventually go out of business. If F.Y.E. is reading this, you're still making money after 25% off and BSP 10% off, because most of your items are too expensive. That's why F.Y.E. stands for Fxxx You're Expensive. That 10% BSP may thwart some people buying. So you're losing business just because you don't want to give BSP discount because I'm sharing BSP.

Your account has to have BSP in the profile. Also you have to click the right item. I ordered and it's still showing up as $16.87 for me. But then you still need $23.13 for free shipping.

BSP is a paid membership. I'm not sure whose account you are giving out, but that account is probably going to get banned after a bunch of people here use it.

Hi, taiwan. I replied to you in another post a while ago, and you didn't respond, so hopefully you'll see this one. I agree with you about the worry of 3D titles going OOS especially when some command such a ridiculously high price (like King Arthur) for some reason. My joke is this is what will happen: if I buy a 3D title now at a high price, it will not go OOS and be readily available for $9.99 at Best Buy by this Christmas; if I don't buy a 3D, it will go OOS and skyrocket in price further making me wish I had paid this price.

Since there are only a few 3Ds I need, I'm tempted to order like you said you did, but I don't trust FYE. Since they closed the store near me, I haven't set foot in a FYE for probably more than a year. I checked their website help and it doesn't mention a word about returning unopened FYE.com items in store. Is returning online items to stores still allowed? They used to let me do that years ago.

I also have low trust given that a Despicable Me 3 3D version is listed (OOS because it doesn't exist), and the Lego Ninja Movie description for 3D says 4K Ultra in the title. What's the chance they send the 4K version instead? IMHO pretty high.

EDIT: I added a few items I wanted, plus Boss Baby 3D which showed $24.99 -> $18.74 on the 3D list, but once I add it to my cart the price jumps to $37.99 -> $28.49 which is quite dishonest. A few other sale titles are the same story. They show you the discounted sale price, but you can't actually buy it for that price.

Also, Geostorm 3D and Blade Runner 2049 3D are listed with 25% off, but Blade Runner shows preorder and N/A and the 25% off says excluded preorders. Their new website isn't programmed very well. I wonder if it's worth buying Geostorm 3D for $22.49 before 10% off? It shows backorder, so would ordering it hold up the rest of my in-stock items or do they ship separately? It's getting to the point there are so few 3D BDs released any more, I don't buy very many any more and it's hard to know which ones will become $10. Even if I get screwed by $10 prices again, we're only talking 5-20 3D titles I buy per year because so few are released now.

I have to add a few more questions: why don't the 3D versions of Geostorm or Blade Runner show up on Amazon except as very expensive marketplace versions? They do exist, right? Did Amazon decide not to carry them, were they never released (in spite of FYE showing them), or are they already nearly OOP barely a month after release?

You're probably right. Hopefully it wasn't taiwan's. I don't think that BSP number works anyway. I tried to use it, but even after logging out and back in, there is no extra 10% discount shown on the order.

Too bad no answers are available before I have to go to work. I searched around on Geostorm 3D and it's very suspicious. No 3D listing on Best Buy in spite of a supposed 1/23/18 release date. Nothing but marketplace sellers on Amazon. I'm thinking the US 3D got cancelled so I don't know if I dare order it from FYE.com, but if so then how did these sellers get a copy? No mention of UK versions in those listings.

I Googled and read FYE.com more carefully. I couldn't find a word about whether a backorder prevents the entire order from shipping or if items ship as they become available. Talk about insufficient info.

I have no idea why the BSP 10% off taiwan mentioned doesn't work, but maybe that BSP account was already cancelled due to overuse?

I guess I won't be ordering anything. Too many unanswered questions and I have too little experience with FYE.com.

Their website is absolutely terrible.

In order to get 32.5% off, you need to have BSP account number entered in the profile. It's on https://www.fye.com/profile. Copy the number I posted and hit Apply button. If you see expiration of 04/03/2018 then it worked.

The 25% discount is automatically applied. So with BSP and 25% off, you have to see the price I listed for above. Try add to your cart as well. In any case I'm still seeing the prices here. Make sure you select the correct format. Some of the incorrect prices reported are for different format. You cannot click my link and then hit add cart button because it defaults to different format. If you want 3D make sure you select 3D Blu-ray and watch to make sure the item ID has changed.

Ninjago shows 4K in title but the cart description has the correct id and format is showing as 3D Blu-ray. There could be a potential problem but I'm taking a chance knowing the return shipping is guaranteed and free. Despicable Me 3 3D is not clickable because item doesn't exist.

P.S. After adding to the cart the BSP discount doesn't seem to work. Looks like F.Y.E. is willing to forfeit opportunity to make money just because of people sharing BSP to get extra 10% off. They deserve to go out of business like goHastings.

Thanks. I started to pack up my bags for work, but then I checked one more time and saw your reply. The BSP does show up correctly (and I can't remove it from my account either) except it shows 4/9/2018 and not 4/3/2018 as the expiration. The prices show 25% + 10% off in my cart, but when I go to checkout the BSP discount disappears (as do the sale prices) and it's just 25% off regular price making everything 10% higher than you listed. It seems that's the best I can do. Did you order these with 10% off from FYE.com today or yesterday? If yes, there must be something else afoot.

You didn't mention if backorders ship separately or if they hold up the entire order (like it does at Frys.com) nor if Geostorm 3D actually exists given its lack of availability on other web sites. If Geostorm 3D won't hold up my order, then I see no harm ordering it. Also, do you know if we can return incorrect items (or if they go on sale somewhere else cheaper within 30 days) to FYE stores?

Regardless, if I order, it's going to be without the 10% off because it's just not working for me at checkout. I wonder if it could be a browser issue? I'm trying it now. EDIT: Nope, not a browser issue. The latest Firefox has the same issue. No BSP discount with that BSP number.

If you can answer the questions on Geostorm, I could place my order. Any ideas on the 10% or should I just give up on that? No other posts here make me think I'm the only other person who is interested in these 3D titles. I have to go to work now, and if I order it will have to be on my phone which will be a pain, but I'll check back in an hour or so.

The 10% discount is gone. I attached my pic of my order earlier this morning when discount worked properly. I pulled the trigger on Ninjago because there were 18 copies left on Amazon last I checked, Best Buy and Target sold out completely. If you look at my order, Item No matches with 3D and it says format is 3D Blu-ray. The title does say 4K but I'm willing to gamble on this.

Geostorm is being manufactured on demand by warner brothers. Best buy sold out of their supply and got a little bit more in a week ago but that sold out in about a day. I and many others have received a copy from best buy. Keep checking the site because inventory might pop up again..

EDIT: I just checked bestbuy.com and they removed the listing for it... not a good sign.

You can still get it from warners ship for $34.99

You can't return items to the physical store. But return shipping is free and customer service is quite responsive by e-mail. They usually get my orders right. What I love about them is the high percentage of digital code they included on used items. I got SpongeBob 3D for 3 bucks and change and it had working digital code. It's possible 7 people from SD ordered because the quantity was 8 when I posted and dropped down to 1 after the deal ended. If that wasn't a deal I don't know what is. In any case, they honor all my returns because a few combo pack was missing one disc (usually DVD). I'm pretty sure if you ordered 3D and they don't give you 3D, they will honor the return. I think there is a chance for error especially with Ninjago. But I'm willing to gamble.

You're not going get screwed by Best Buy's fire sale. The only likely candidate is Kong but there isn't enough King Arthur or Ninjago available so even if Best Buy does the $10 sale in the future most of us might not be fast enough to grab the remaining few copies.

The BSP discount is still not working. Someone definitely alerted FYE after some of us got the order in with the right discount. The 25% off promo ends today at 12AM ET(technically tomorrow). So you could just keep trying. Without the BSP discount, you're only losing 7.5% discount, not 10% because BSP discount is only applied after the 25% discount. Because some of these 3D titles are very hard to get at this price, collectors will just have to decide if it's worth it to wait or buy it now at 25% off instead of 32.5%.

This is just a great business model. By taking away BSP discount, FYE is pissing the people who paid for BSP membership because everybody's BSP discount isn't working. Using the $3.78 SpongeBob 3D I posted last month, before my post there were 8 copies and after the promo ended there was just one copy left. I'm going to say 7 people got the deal here. My guess is the number of people wanting these hard to get 3D titles will not be more than a dozen. We're talking about savings of a few dollars from BSP, and they just want to take that away from every legit BSP members just because some of them are sharing their account. Who loses in the end? FYE. Maybe some of you will just get pissed and pay $45 from Amazon to get Ninjago or King Arthur. Congrats to people who got this deal at the right discount.

Highly unlikely. There was no pricing error that worked against what they intended. 25% off regular price store wide is very straight forward. I'm not sure the management will come back and say "oh, we didn't mean to have the discount work on 3D Blu-rays". Also, the highest discount they've offer on new items was 35% off last year but that was limited on new releases. They are going to make money and they will honor the orders. The problem lies on the BSP discount that was removed later this morning. So now the prices are just 25% off instead of 32.5% off.

Did your earlier order had the correct prices with BSP discount included?
