MORE BLU-RAY STEELBOOKS PLEASE!!!!!!

  So i was really hoping that with all the Canadian Futureshops being rebranded Best Buy Canada we could start to get the same Steelbook releases across both countries. Seeing as they are really all one in the same now, why cant the company simply order a quantity great enough to distribute them to both countries. I was hoping at the very least we could order from Best Buy Canada now for U.S. delivery, even it be site to store and not home delivery.

  So i guess simply put, my question is why can Best Buy not work this out??? Why does Canada get all  the love on the new Steelbooks?? 

 

 For example....

The new Mondo Releases of T2

The Kingsman

The Amazing Spider-man 2

etc

etc

etc

etc

 

Thanks,

One serious Steelbook collector that doesmt want to drive to Canada!!

Re: MORE BLU-RAY STEELBOOKS PLEASE!!!!!!

Hello sullivan7221-

 

Best Buy Canada is a separate entity from Best Buy in the US, so regrettably, we are not able to offer the ability to order from there for US delivery and vice versa.

 

The creation and distribution of steel books is made by the manufacturer, not us, so we have no control over which titles will receive this treatment.  I can only recommend watching BestBuy.com here for possible steel book versions that we carry.

 

Thanks for posting!

Re: MORE BLU-RAY STEELBOOKS PLEASE!!!!!!

Bill,

  Two real issues with your comment above....

 

1) ""Best Buy Canada is a separate entity from Best Buy in the US, so regrettably, we are not able to offer the ability to order from there for US delivery and vice versa."'-Bill-BBY

  

Isn't one of your largest competitors in both the United States and Canada Amazon.com?? Why not offer international shipping from Canada to the United States and vice versa?? Allowing customers to buy from other divisions of Best Buy outside of their home countries only offers more options and allows customers more purchase options. If a customer is willing to pay the increased international shipping cost associated with international shipping, more power to them and more money for the retailer. 

 

2)""The creation and distribution of steel books is made by the manufacturer, not us, so we have no control over which titles will receive this treatment.""-Bill-BBY 

  

  Your comment insinuates that the manufacturers of these Steelbooks would pick and choose who sells them, when in fact companies such as Best Buy,Target, Wal-Mart, etc. all bid to carry certain items and exclusivity goes to the highest bidder. Right?? The manufacturer couldn't care less how many of a certain title are produced in a given print run if a contract by the retailer is signed to buy and sell them all. Once that agreement is made, it is the retailers burden if units do not sell.

 

  The "creation" of these Steelbooks is most definitely at the mercy of the manufacturer, this I understand and totally agree with. There is no amount of money any retailer can pay them to don a certain title with the Steelbook treatment if they simply don't want to do it. 

 

Thanks,

Sullivan7221

1) Amazon actually runs several websites independant of each other. They treat Amazon.com separately from Amazon.ca (their Canadien website), as they do with all of their other international websites.

This would be incorrect, at least for Walmart.  Manufacturers and Distributors are the ones "bidding" for Walmart to carry their items, and exclusivity is given in hopes of getting them to accept the item.  While I know this is how Walmart does business, I can't say for Best Buy or Target and the etc., but I would be hard pressed to believe that they have so much retail space available and have to "bid" for the rights to carry and sell what the manufacturer makes.

Before posting I try to research everything first or use my own experiences. I do not now nor have I ever worked for Best Buy. After a year and a half hiatus, I'm back working for the competition.
If you respond to a post of mine, I will read it. I may or may not post in the thread again, but rest assured I will read your response Smiley Happy
