Some folks are fine streaming their movies, and some -- like my Cheapskate Show co-host Dave Johnson -- prefer to own physical copies. ("For when the apocalypse comes," he says. It's a fair point.)
If you're in Dave's camp, today's the day you can stock up for cheap. For a limited time, Amazon and Best Buy have a bunch of Blu-ray movies on sale for $4.99 apiece. Many of them come with the digital editions as well, and some also include the DVD. They're mostly older titles, but there are definitely some gems in the mix.
Your local Best Buy store may offer a curbside pickup option if you want to save on shipping costs, or just get your movies speedy-quick.
13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi
Critics weren't kind to this John Krasinski action flick, but viewers seemed to really like it. (It has a 93% recommended score on Google.) This version includes Blu-ray, DVD and digital.
Yeah, yeah, the remake-y nature of this was irritating, but I still think it was a super-fun ride. This version includes Blu-ray, DVD and digital. (Editor's note: Paramount Pictures, like CNET, is owned by ViacomCBS.)
