    Picked up KISS - "Rock & Roll Over" for $9.49 and Green Day - "Insomniac" (2 x LP) for $10.99 this afternoon. BOTH rang up as "CD" on my receipt.

    Odd thing was, the other KISS album they had there, "Destroyer", rang up as full price. :shrug:

    Stopped by BB today to see if anything was left. No Crimson, Floyd or Springsteen but plenty was still on the shelves. In addition to the compiled list above, I found the following was also on clearance...

    Red Hot Chili Peppers Unlimited Love $12.99 ($35.99)
    WAR Greatest Hits 2.0 $14.99 ($40.99)
    Guns n Roses Greatest Hits $14.99 ($39.99)
    TwentyOne Pilots Blurryface $11.99 ($32.99)

    As the post above, everything on my receipt also rang up as CD and several scanned as a different album but with the same retail price so I figured a dollar or 2 either way would probably even out. Also, when I looked over the receipt, I realized the cashier didn't ring up The Who Sells Out so unless I have a severe conflict of conscience, I came out well ahead.

    Another productive lunch trip, again with a nice bundle of finds and great service. Unfortunately, I'm out of Best Buys to plunder. All told, 25 records I actually wanted (well, a couple are gifts) for $328 out the door. At this point, I'm probably done buying records.


    Only one that was not on the list - 21 pilots Blurryface -$11.99

    A few to add to the not on sale list - Stones - Goats Head and Blue & Lonesome, Jefferson Airplane - Surrealistic Pillow, and Johnny Winter - 3rd degree.

    (and thank you to @jayceman for compiling the list - I had it open in the store and it was very helpful to my aging brain)

    Cars- Moving in Stereo Best of The Cars (2LP) $11.99
    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 (Picture Disc) $7.49
    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2LP) - $9.49
    Al Green - Greatest Hits (Best Buy Exclusive Green) $7.99
    Sinéad O'Connor – So Far…The Best Of Sinéad O'Connor (Clear 2LP) $11.99
    Beatles #1's (2LP) $17.99

    Here's what I ended up with! Sadly, every album I was most excited to get (probably a good 20 or so) were all not on clearance but overall it was well worth the trip and I appreciate the heads up of this thread as I def. would have never went otherwise.

    Visited couple of Best Buy stores

    Store 1
    Bruce Springsteen - Born to Run ($8.49)
    Green Day - Insomniac 2LP ($10.99)

    Store 2
    Sly & the Family Stone - There's Riot Going On ($8.99)

    Cat Steven - Teaser & the Firecat in Store 1 was not discounted.
    As per Pink Floyd - DSOTM should have been there in Store 2 but did not find it. I have this album in all the different formats (cassette, CD, SACD, Blu-ray) except for vinyl, so wanted to rectify that.

    Other 2 high on my wishlist were not there in these stores

    King Crimson - In the Court of Crimson King (Have in CD+DVD-A format, one of my favorite albums ever)
    Forrest Gump ST

    I was finally able to hit one of my local Best Buys today. They had a few of the "clearance" titles in stock but when I took them to the register to price check they all came up as regular priced matching what was on the sticker and/or the website listing. Disappointed but they didn't really have the titles I was after (Police & Cars greatest, Bad Brains etc). I will try and hit another 1 or 2 of the stores close to me and report back.

    Thanks very much to Jayceman for the list. I copied and pasted it into a document and printed it out to have a reference guide while browsing the vinyl racks!!!

    Went to a Best Buy that had a ton compared to the others I’ve been to. Mostly the above titles but also the following which I picked up.

    Fleetwood Mac Greatest Hits - 9.49
    Pink Floyd - The Wall - 15.99
    Phil Spector - A Christmas Gift for You - 7.49
    Bob Dylan - Bringing it All Back Home - 6.99
    Bob Marley - Legend - 9.49
    Doors - Self Titled - 8.49

    They also had a couple of Sundazed pressings which didn’t ring up at all.

    Mine had a few of those Sundazed releases as well and they manually inputted them to check and none were on clearance.

    Didn’t realize the Marvin Gaye AAA was on this sale. Gonna go back tomorrow and hope there’s a copy as I was prepared to drop MSRP for it earlier today.

    I went this morning and the section was clearly picked over. I got a copy of Nine Inch Nails’ pretty hate machine for $8.49.

    Interestingly, they also had a copy of the Beatles white album with Esher demos, but it was unwrapped with no barcode and not on their website anymore, so they had no idea what to charge me for it!

    Might try another location later…

    Yeah went into mine today and all they had were like GNR, Travis Scott, etc. Was hopeful I'd find the Marvin Gaye record but alas, seems like the time to buy has passed. The nearest alternative BB is an hour away so no thanks.

    Are You Experienced just rang up for $20.99

    I went to one of the (many) local Best Buys today and no discount vinyl to be found. :(

    Has the sale ended? It's so weird how random and inconsistent this one has been from store to store.

    Nope. Reports above indicate people having gotten things today, so presumably still on. Debating going to one more tonight, but I probably have already spent enough on stuff I don’t truly need. These darn sales are so hard to stay away from though!

    Just went to another store, picked out Rubber Soul, Are You Experienced, and Thriller pic disc and they were all list price.

    Well that seems like the end of that. Just as well as I wasn’t going to get there until tomorrow anyway. Saves me a trip and some $$$.

    yes, it looks like it’s over. I just went to another location and the same record. I bought this morning on sale was now full price. The clerk had no idea that the sale was even going on or why it might’ve ended.

    I got Experience Hendrix for $8.49 and Cars Moving in Stereo for $11.99 today. So it may or may not be active. I'm done though. I need to be.

    Have been meaning to check my locals and I drove right by my closest store today and completely forgot to stop. :rolleyes: Website still shows lots of stock for my store(s) but might’ve missed it anyway.

    Ditto. And there were some which have been discounted elsewhere.

    It’s just bizarre. “Clearance” usually means something different than “sale.”
