That's the "Stay Incentive". So not worth it. After tax, about $600, and all the grief and stress is free :rolleyes:

No, the sale was run by the lowly, castoff employees:p. They didn't hire a liquidation company. The receivership was still in it's infancy, and they did it the most cost effective way.

25% off. It's a good deal for the brand brand new releases. X-Men First Class is $19.99 Dvd, and $29.99 Blu -discount. Pretty decent pricing for a title just released today.

I kinda chuckle at the 2nd Stay Bonus they're offering. That measly $1000 (pre-tax) is hardly worth the torture and abuse to stay. If they're smart (?) they'll up the amount to at least $5000 per...
