Having read the Best Buy, Target, and WalMart ads, I'm pretty disappointed with the TV on DVD sales. TV on DVD sets that were around $10 last year (or less) appear to be $13 now. It also seems like stores are holding back from putting more recent seasons on sale too, when last year I even got the latest release as cheap as the other seasons. A lot of the DVD sets I'm interested in have been $14 or lower over the course of the year, and now they're maybe only $13 for Black Friday. I guess I'll keep waiting or hope there are some good unadvertised prices.

Considering DVD is on a decline as a medium, its also unfortunate to see some of the movie titles listed in the various price categories above $5.

Obviously retailers are worried about profits and they certainly don't owe us consumers any deals, but it's still disappointing. It looks like Best Buy has the better prices on TV on DVD, and Wal-Mart has the better prices for movie DVDs, so far. And seeing how timid Amazon was last year, at this point I'm not even expecting them to price match or even beat these B&M retailers price wise.

So far these Black Friday deals on DVDs are pretty lame, I already have the DVDs I want from those lists and I didn't pay very much for them when I bought them (I never do). I'm hoping these lists expand as we get closer to Black Friday, I'd like to see a good price on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. $13.99 isn't good enough for me. -kd5-

My experience with last year's Black Friday sales was mixed. I found that the after Chrsitmas sales between the 26th to 30th December were much better than the so called Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale prices and offers. Lower prices and better, wider selection of titles too!

Target will be opening at midnight. Some of its employees are really pissed about this and are complaining openly:

Target Employees Fight Back Against Store's Plan To Open Thanksgiving Night
By Chris Morran on November 14, 2011 12:15 PM

(Lovingier Photography)

Because people simply can not wait until after they've digested their turkey to cash in on deep discounts, many of the major retail chains are opening earlier than usual on Black Friday this year. This is not sitting well with thousands of Target employees who have signed a petition for the store to at least let them finish their pumpkin pie before having to report to work.

As of now, more than 9,000 people have signed this petition asking Target HQ to wait until 5 a.m. on Black Friday to open the stores.

Reads the petition:

A midnight opening robs the hourly and in-store salary workers of time off with their families on Thanksgiving Day. By opening the doors at midnight, Target is requiring team members to be in the store by 11 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day. A full holiday with family is not just for the elite of this nation — all Americans should be able to break bread with loved ones and get a good night's rest on Thanksgiving!

"All Americans should be able to break bread with loved ones on Thanksgiving," the creator of the petition, a Target employee in Nebraska, tells CBS. "With the midnight opening, employees like myself will have to leave for work right in the middle of Thanksgiving dinner. We don't mind hard work, but cutting into our holidays is a step too far... If Target doesn't reverse its decision and allow associates to spend Thanksgiving holidays with their family, they might suffer from a fast-growing consumer backlash."

A manager of a Michigan Target tell CBS Detroit, "We're trying to stay ahead of the curve... I don't like the fact I have to come in on Thanskgiving, but when you work in retail it's the nature of the beast."

These stores must have boxes of unsold Weeds seasons. Every Black Friday, it's the main tv season on sale in all the stores.

First, thanks to those who put the lists together. But wow, for my needs I see very damned little. No TV boxes, a handful of films. Obviously, while the retailers are being aggressive in terms of opening hours, they're not offering very compelling product. I'm seriously reconsidering my midnight run to Wally Mart and El Targay.

Hopefully there will be a Blu-Ray Black Friday list soon to save me from squinting at the ad scans and writing up a list. The problem is that DVDs aren't very interesting to me any more with BD, so I'd have a tough time paying more than $3 for any DVD.

Regarding Doc Moonlight's post above, it says the article says the reason BF was moved up to midnight is "because people simply can not wait". Oh really? Maybe I'm in the minority view here, but I definitely wish BF would never start before 5 AM to allow people to sleep and spend an uninterrupted Thanksgiving with their families. I assumed the reason BF was moved up to midnight is "because RETAILERS simply can not wait".

That's right, and every year I pass on it regardless of the price (I think it's usually $8.99 per season). I haven't ever seen the series, so maybe it's good.

It's VERY good Manzana as I can attest to. Good amount of comedy + drama.
Of course you have to be open minded on the main topic of weed. Excellent performances by the entire cast and especially Kevin Nealon (who prior to this series I only marginally liked).

I give this series a big :thumbsup::thumbsup:

I own all the seasons and eagerly look forward to each new season on DVD.

Wallmart:

Saw the above mentioned tv titles on a special display at Sam's Club for $18.88 plus The Sopranos, John Adams, Deadwood, and Rome. So there is a possibility that these titles will be in the $10 bins at Walmart on Black Friday.

Maybe, but I doubt I'll find a new release for less than that even if they're going to throw it back in the vault. I'd love to pay just $3.96 for it like I did for the other 7 at Walmart the other day but I doubt that'll happen anytime soon, unless you know something I don't. -kd5-

Depends MooMooMooMoo. This year Wal-Mart will start BF at 10pm, Thursday. If you arrive around nine, the line to get inside isn't too bad. Look about and find the areas of your target. The DVDs are held inside cardboard racks and sealed plastic; won't be open until ten. Get done quick, leave quick. It will be busy, but for the most part NOT as bad as later. Later will be a massive, massive mess.

This year will be my fourth outing.

I'm still waiting on info for Big Lots.

My game plan is going around 9pm to Wal-Mart, leave about 11 or so, go to bed. Wake up about four and go to Big Lots. The line there is usually big. The store is next door to a Target, so I'll give them a look.

After both stores I'm heading off to Best Buy then back to Wal-Mart. They're going to have more DVDs on sale at 8AM.

My BF will be a hectic. I for one love it. It's exciting. Two years ago I was in Upland and the police showed up. Nothing happened at the Wal-Mart I was at. But a nearby store (another Wal-Mart) had a full riot. They closed down the store. They were afraid pissed off customers from there would come here. Every few minutes on the loud speaker they would say, 'please stay calm'.

Good times.

I have stuff I'm gonna pick up at Target & Best Buy and I will check Wal-Mart(and T & BB) for there "more in-store".

Upset that the Chuck Season 4 Blu-Ray,and Middle Season 2 arent on sale as neither of them have had any kind of price drop. $40 for Chuck and $35 for Middle are just to damn much. Also wish that the Clone Wars Season 3 Blu-Ray was on sale like the 1st 2 seasons were the last 2 years.

Worth noting that Target has promised that their Price Match policy this year will include Black Friday (with an original printed ad). Not sure if the employees will be clear on that, but it sounds promising:

I went abotu 12:30 last year (which would correspond to 10:30 this year). Traffic wasn't that heavy, and most people were congregated around the two or three big sale items (this year they've got a 55 inch Samsung plasma TV for just under $500). I didn't have any problem getting my share of the promotional DVDs. Keep in mind that they will be in displays in different parts of the store, not necessarily in the DVD section. Also keep in mind that just because a DVD is in the rack doesn't mean it's on sale (especially if it's the only one of that title you see there). People have been known to pick things up in one place and put them down in another. They promotional DVDs will usually be clearly labeled.

I hope these stores have product when the normal Black Friday crowd shops in the morning. I hate that these stores are opening at midnight, +/- an hour or 2, the night before, and all these crazy people are going to be thrashing about the stores in the wee hours of the morning when us normal people are sleeping peacefully waiting for our Black Friday morning at the stores, only to find everything's already gone. I predict there are going to be alot of pissed off people come Black Friday during normal business hours, and I may very well be one of them. But neither my wife nor I want to subject ourselves to that insanity the night before. -kd5-

If you're looking for a doorbuster deal, what difference does it make waiting in line from 9pm - 12 am vs. 2am - 5am which people were doing last year (hell, even earlier for some). If you're just looking for DVDs & Blu-rays, I remember in the past couple years I've seen plenty left at noontime. This year could be different, however. As the store ads clearly state, everything has a limited quantity. :) :)

That seems like good advice, thanks. I stopped by WM today and picked up their print ad (it wasn't out but they pulled one for me out of a box). It does mention "limited quantities". Nothing else that should cause a problem, but I'll stop by a couple of Targets tomorrow and ask Cust Service. If they say okay then that's great, and I'll ask them to sign the ad or a note to prevent any problems on BF. If not, then at least I'll know.

Every few minutes on the loud speaker they would say, 'please stay calm'.

Good times.

I can't yet post what I've heard about BL, but it's not very exciting.

Big Lots $1.88 dvd's and some of the other stuff they are doing
this year, is sorta lackluster compared to what they did last year.

They did it last year with Casino Royale (2-Disc Full Screen Edition)

Big Lots

BF begins on Friday at 6am.

"Shoppers spending $50 or more on Thursday, November 24 – Saturday, November 26 will receive a $10 coupon to be used for their next purchase at a Big Lots store."

If you're looking for a doorbuster deal, what difference does it make waiting in line from 9pm - 12 am vs. 2am - 5am which people were doing last year (hell, even earlier for some). If you're just looking for DVDs & Blu-rays, I remember in the past couple years I've seen plenty left at noontime. This year could be different, however. As the store ads clearly state, everything has a limited quantity. :) :)

2 years ago, i got to BB at 11pm (doors opened at 6) and the line was already half way around the building. I'm curious if people will be camped for 6 or 7 hours like usual or if the lines won't start til later (around 10) due to everyone being at home for thanksgiving dinner

I was there for Circuit City's final BF around 4am. The big item people wanted was a laptop. As we got close to opening they gave out tickets for the computer. Even before the doors opened, it sold out. I was in front of one of those folks, pissed.

Re BL, Based on the information I have I wouldn't assume there will be huge lines. Since the $1.88 dvd's have already been posted by someone else, here's what little else I THINK I know:

1. I have been told the $1.88 dvd's are pretty much the same titles we've seen the last 2 months

2. The $5 xmas & $6 2 disc sets are likely also going to be tied into BF at those prices.

I.E., nothing like 2 years ago where we got the $2 box set bonanza.

Looks like both the Big Lots $3 and $5 titles are $1.88. They have current $5 titles pictured in the ad. Although the ad does state "priced as marked." So I wonder if there is a batch with the $1.88 price tags. Also in the ad are the Paramount and WB double features for $4.88. X-mas dvds for 4.00.

Have no idea which Amazon thread that is without a link.

I am a bit disappointed in what is being offered this year at Amazon. I hope that add stuff during the week like gift sets of Ben Hur , Ten Commandments Citizen Kane and Looney Tunes in blu. Only must buy for me so far is Season 4 of Mad Men.
The non gift set of Ten Commandments will be offered. Hopefully at a fantastic price. Without prime it will be difficult to get to $25 to avoid shipping charges this year.

I'm also in the no Blu-Ray crowd, at least at this time...
I watch Blu Ray's on my Playstation 3 and while the picture is marginally better than my upconverting DVD player, it's not worth the extra cost of the Blu-Rays in my opinion. I probably watch 3 DVDs for every Blu Ray I watch. My TV is a two year old 46" Sony Bravia, a reasonably nice TV.

Anyway, back to the thread, I'll be picking up Weeds, Season 6 and maybe Season 4 of Mad Men. Maybe another TV season or two.

I watch a fair amount of TV on DVD and lately I've just been checking them out from my local library. What they don't have they can get from the system, at no cost to me (other than property taxes). I've watched Grey's Anatomy Seasons 1-6, Tombstone 1-3, Six Feet Under 1-5 (6?), and the Dexter series will be next.

I'm keeping an eye on that one too. While the current ~$14 is not bad I'd rather pay less if possible. I'm somewhat annoyed that since I jumped on Part 1 at $3.99 it's also going to be a lightning deal for probably a buck or two less. I'll probably get another "just because" if that's the case...

Just be aware that you only have 15 *minutes* to check out with a lightning deal once you've placed it in your cart. You really need a prime account to milk these, otherwise you'll find yourself picking up other stuff to get free shipping or just paying the shipping fees. At least the "regular" amazon price is what's used to calculate shipping threasholds *not* the "deal" price so that *can* help some. If you don't have prime already, check out the amazon mom program. It gets you 3 months of prime for free - no, you do not have to be a mom to qualify.

At least the "regular" amazon price is what's used to calculate shipping threasholds *not* the "deal" price so that *can* help some.

It can definitely be tough, though not impossible, for non-Prime members who are looking to spend $25 to get free shipping. I've been regularly shopping Amazon BF for the last four years and have never needed it, but I do a lot of planning beforehand.

I have a lot of wish lists that I'm quite familiar with, filled with movies and books that (are at very good prices) I can quickly pull from. Pre-orders work to fill the $25 minimum, as do Bargain Books and books purchased in the 4-3 program. For example, I'll throw 4 $7.99 books in my cart that total $23.97 after the 4-3 discount and that gets me free shipping on any Lightning Deals that cost $1.03 or more.

That being said, one needs to be quick to pull this off, and I might give in and join this time. There is exactly one advertised LD each day that I have an interest in. I don't know what the other deals might turn out to be, but buying $25 x 8 (and it's always more than $25) is a fair sized commitment just to get one $2-$8 movie per day.

If you don't have prime already, check out the amazon mom program. It gets you 3 months of prime for free - no, you do not have to be a mom to qualify.

Decent advice when available, but they're currently not accepting new members to Amazon Mom.

I can't believe if you haven't had Prime in the last 4 years, you acct does not offer a 1-month trial membership. I just got Prime on an account I created 10 years ago that I rarely use. I just pre-ordered a DVD released in 2012 (that I will cancel later). As I was going through the checkout process, it asked me if I wanted a trial membership. Might be worth a look and might even save some $$$.

I agree about the planning. If I didn't get the Prime, I was either going to have to pass on some stuff or find all the stuff I wanted and hope the price doesn't fluctuate before I am able to use it to pad my LDs.

I can't believe if you haven't had Prime in the last 4 years, you acct does not offer a 1-month trial membership.

It's definitely offered to me, but I've heard stories of people having trouble canceling and that some feel like the service declines in some way if they cancel at the end of the trial. This may not actually be a problem, and could have more to do with those specific individuals, but I figure why risk it? I don't care if an order takes two days, two weeks, or longer to get to me and I have enough wish listed books/pre-orders/items that are at good enough prices that I feel comfortable paying what Amazon has them on sale for when I use them to meet the $25 minimum.

Also, if you take the trial then I've heard you can't join again, on trial, for another year. So long as I don't take the trial, it's always available to me if I do decide I really need it.

I just got Prime on an account I created 10 years ago that I rarely use. I just pre-ordered a DVD released in 2012 (that I will cancel later). As I was going through the checkout process, it asked me if I wanted a trial membership. Might be worth a look and might even save some $$$.

I do appreciate your advice. I have stuck to only buying books and other items that I would pick up anyway at some point, so I don't feel that I've lost money. But it sounds like a program with many advantages that is useful for many, probably most, people.

Last year my best deals came from sales at VCI and the WB SHOP. Absolutely and don't forget the big Target online sale that had WB boxed sets for under $10 each when you bought two. Can't remember if these sales were "Black Friday" or "Cyber Monday".

24 - Most Seasons are now $15.49
Castle: The Complete Third Season $18.99
Friday Night Lights: Seasons 1-5 $12.99
It's Garry Shandling's Show: The Complete Series $69.99

Anyone know if How I Met Your Mother Season 6 will be on sale anywhere? Usually Target has it in their ad but I didnít see it this year.

Just bought it from Amazon for $17.49. I'd qualify it as a sale.

The Target sale (http://forum.dvdtalk.com/dvd-bargains/582723-dead-target-cybermonday-movies-2-16-tv-series-br.html) you're talking about was 2 for $16 & was Cyber Monday. I bought a crap load at that one. :D

Modern Family Season 2 DVD is also $12.99 at Amazon.

This will be $8.99 at BestBuy.com starting at Thursday, midnight so if you can't be online for the Amazon
deal (which will probably be $8.99) at 3:30 pm ET on Thursday afternoon, you can order it then.

LOL-the Amazon deal being at 3:30 pm ET on Thursday afternoon - that will be the time I'll be at my
Aunts who I'm buying the DVD for. Unless I want it to be a surprise, I could use her computer to order
the DVD from Amazon.com - Nahh, just going to order it from Best Buy at midnight-Thursday.

Did pretty good on the Modern Family DVDs for her - got Season 1 for free via mycokerewards.com and
now Season 2 at BestBuy.com for $8.99 before tax.

the lowest it's ever been. Missed it last year at BN for 37.xx, so was happy to finally pick this up (even though I got the first 2 seasons from BL last BF).

So far I've had restraint and only bought what I know I will like and not blind buy because the price is cheap. but the week is young.

I would loooove to be able to get all seasons of Boy Meets World at Best Buy, but the weird thing is that none of my local stores have had the DVDs even on their release dates. So who's to say they'd actually have them all of a sudden on Black Friday?

From previous Retail Experience, stores tend to get a good shipment of items in Ad X to make sure they have at the very least what is pictured to be on sale. This applies to all Weekly Ads and not just Black Friday.

This assumes that nothing goes wrong and sometimes it does. Such as stores not getting much of a said item for whatever reason or Merchandising + Inventory Teams not sectioning out what products are supposed to be held back for Black Friday Ads.

Thanks Bob and Folks, I bookmarked the camel site.

Tempted on WEST, but trying to save money to get a tablet before Christmas. I borrowed my brother's WEST set, watched the first two seasons and am almost done with the third so am really not in a hurry to pick my own set now since it will be awhile before I want to watch the series again. Still though it's nice to have on the shelf! ACK! Decisions, decisions!

So, it shows up cheaper in a regular search, but do you also notice it looks like via BF link as being out of print and sold by a third party, but shows up as being available from Amazon and still in print from regular search???

So far absolute crap from GO HASTINGS and an equally lame BF "sale" at OLDIES.COM. Not much new reported at BIG LOTS. 25% off at Warner Archive, but shipping and tax kill it for me. No word from VCI or WB Shop yet.

Not much for catalog titles anywhere, mostly just new stuff.

I wasn't aware of that title, but if you look carefully Amazon has two different listings for what appears to be the exact same item.

Literally hundreds of price drops from Amazon since Midnight PST (3:00 AM EST). They're matching Wal-Mart and Best Buy (or coming very close) with lots of $5.00 DVD's and TV shows in the $10-$15 range, plus others I haven't seen advertised anywhere else. And even a few that are super-cheap like "He's Just Not That Into You" for $1.99.

You can see all of the DVD price drops here:

I was just at BestBuy.com, found Deathly Hallows, Part 2 listed for $6.99 (but not yet available for that price), it appears as though once it goes live, I can order it from BB.com w/ free shipping. Would that be a pretty fair assessment?

If that's the case, I don't have to actually be at the Best Buy store at midnight (which I absolutely refuse to do) in order to get this for $6.99.

Amazon will have it for that price tomorrow morning but you have to buy $25 worth of stuff to get free shipping (not interested in Prime) and there's really nothing else that I want right to shell out $$$ for right now (there are other DVDs in my cart saved for later, but nothing of very high priority). Of course the downside to buying it at BB.com is sales tax, but tax on $6.99 may be preferable to me that having to buy $25 worth of stuff just to get Deathly Hallows, Part 2 for that price. -kd5-

GoHastings will have 30% off used DVDs and 20% off used BR. Its no huge Black Friday sale, but its something.

For some reason, every time I try to use one of their coupon codes, it never actually works. I found a used tv series I wanted, but when I put the coupon code in, it says it had been applied to the order, but the price was exactly the same.

Same exact thing happened during one of their Halloween sales.

dex14
11-24-11, 01:49 PM
Probably cause their shipping prices are so much you dont notice the difference. They have great used prices and I've used them alot over the last couple months...but they need to start offering free shipping. I have 6 dvds in my cart totaling 9 buckss and the shipping is 13. Ridiculous

ProfessorEcho
11-24-11, 02:05 PM
Paste, that's happening because only certain items qualify for the discounts. Their site is such corn in dog shit that you often can't tell what's part of the promotion until you apply the code and wait to see if the price changes.

GoHastings has this same sale several times a year so as a Black Friday deal this is utter crap. Offering Free or reduced shipping would have made this worthy of Black Friday but as it is, bleh.

With this and VCI pretty much out of it this year, it looks like I'm saving more money than I intended. Not a bad thing, of course, but still disappointing when you're eagerly looking for bargains.

kodave
11-24-11, 02:34 PM
GoHastings will have "up to" 40% off on used movies come Monday with a promo code. I hope the "up to" is just terrible wording, and I'm assuming since you have to apply a promo code, it'll just be 40% off used DVDs.

You can do the math for yourself, but free shipping isn't always the answer with GoHastings. At a certain price point it makes more sense to do free shipping over 30% or 40% off and vice versa. Or 96 cent shipping versus a certain percentage off.

For example, if you're holding out for free shipping, if your used DVD is 'regularly' priced at $5.70, its the same thing either way with free shipping or 40% off. If its more expensive than that, go for the 40% off code on Monday. If its less, risk it and hold out for a free shipping promotion.

I personally don't bother with GoHastings for DVDs. They all come in such shit condition for used DVDs with tons of scratches and cover art that looks like a dog chewed on it. They also mix in previously viewed rental DVDs that have been traded back in and classify them as "used" meaning you can get a DVD that has less features and stuff. They claim they don't do it, but they definitely do and their store employees are pretty terrible. They'll just grab anything that looks right by the title, and not check SKUs or Used versus Previously Viewed. They'll always give you a refund but after a while it just becomes a hassle to send things back so I just stopped ordering used DVDs from them.

Right now they have 30% off all new and used books. They go as high as 40% off used books at other times, but 30% off new is a pretty good deal since their prices are fairly competitive with Amazon/BN on a lot of new books, but of course, not all new books. Their used books come in excellent condition most of the time, especially hardcovers.

11-24-11, 02:43 PM
I've never had a problem with the DVDs I've gotten from them. I think I've gotten like 30 from them over the last month or 2. $.96 on a used DVD is always awesome too. Thats the last promo I used.

In recent years, sale items have been repackaged with a special bar code attached to them. Presumably, it rings up at the sale price during sale hours (that allows them to keep track of stuff that wanders from one bin or display rack to another during the day). I'd presume those codes wouldn't work before or after the right time (although it's only an hour from now anyway).

Also, the sale items are usually wrapped up in special displays that you can't access until the appointed time.

Other $10 TV seasons seen at the Walmart feeding frenzy in my town:

Justified S1
The Big Bang Theory S1, S2, S3
Sons of Anarchy S1, S2, S3
True Blood S1, S2
The Vampire Diaries S2
Six Feet Under S1, S4, S5
East Bound and Down S1
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia S1&2, S3, S4, S5
Bones S2
Glee S1

...and lots more. The whole experience had a certain "pool of piranha" feel to it, however, and I was glad to get out within 45 minutes of entering the store.

last year walmart let you inside and line up at whatever deal you wanted. worked GREAT

this year they advertise how they stay open so you dont have to wait outside...yet they made you wait outside. they only let so many people in at a time. waited 2 hours in line and left as the line was making no progress..

I started off at Big Lots around 6:30 hoping to grab some cheap TV seasons and there was virtually nothing left. Just JAG and Walker Texas Ranger. I did however find CSI Miami S4 for 6$ though and it was the last one they had of any CSI.

I then went to Wal-Mart at around 8:30 and waited near the TV season boxes after grabbing Redneck Zombies: 20th Anniversary Edition from the 5$ bin. It was weird because I couldn't find True Blood or Big Bang Theory but that was because the boxes they had them in were 4-way displays and most of the 4-way's were pushed together so you couldn't see what was on display on the sides. They ended up tearing the plastic wrap down around 9:30 (a half hour earlier than expected) and everyone went bananas. I grabbed True Blood S1-2 and Big Bang Theory S1-2 for 10$ each which to me is a good deal. I also shot over and grabbed a Blu-Ray/DVD player combo for 50$ then put it all in my car and headed over to Best Buy.

I got to Best Buy and the line was gigantic, it was wrapped around multiple times and ended up in the back of the building. They were handing out tickets but I just wanted to go in and get the DVD's. After about an hour of waiting I shot in and grabbed Mad Men S1, Family Guy Volume 8, and White Collar S1 for 8.99$ each. Then I went over to where the 99 cent DVD's were and most were gone already, I was pretty mad they didn't have Fletch as advertised but I got a zombie movie called Autumn (impulse buy) instead. The check-out line for Best Buy was wrapped the whole way throughout the store and I waited about 20 minutes to get checked out.

Most of the DVD's/Blu-Ray's at Wal-Mart were gone after about 10 minutes and there wasn't really anything unexpected that was put on sale at either Wal-Mart or Best Buy except the Walkind Dead S1 Special Edition at Wal-Mart mentioned earlier.

On the bright side, it'll be $7.99 (or less) next year.

They've had major issues with hot items and Lightning Deals for the past few years. They even changed the rules on how they work to get around the issues and problems people were having. I've actually made sure to alreadyb e logged in, clicked on the link as soon as it's come up and immediately gone through checkout only to have the item pulled at verification or show up at the *non* LD price even though it was correct in the cart. Sometimes I feel it's as much a racket as so called "door busters".

For me... Gossip Girl S4 went live at the exact time it was supposed to and it started out at $12.99.. I ordered it anyway as that is a good deal on that new release even if I couldn't get an adjustment ... I chatted with Amazon and was able to get a $5 credit to offset the $12.99 I paid for it... so in the end it was $7.99...

Went to the BF front page that's posted on page 3 (Post #52), clicked on the link for Deathly Hallows (for $6.99), and it says it's a "Lightning Deal" price that expires in 13 and Ĺ minutes???-screwy-

I've been wondering the same thing. I expected digibooks to be a hot sale item at WBshop. Maybe Cyber Monday.

But then my wife & I went out & about at 10/11am, I stopped at Best Buy, picked up the Mortal Kombat Double Feature DVD for $3.99, went to Target but didn't find a damned thing there, went to Walmart, picked up Resident Evil: Afterlife and The Wizard of Oz: 2-Disc 70th Anniversary SE for $5 each, went to Big Lots but didn't find a damned thing there either.

In order to get the $25 minimum at Amazon though, I picked up Hellboy II: The Golden Army - 3 Disc SE for $4.99, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader: 2-Disc Edition for $8.99, and Night of the Living Dead: Millennium Edition for $4.99.

Sorry if this is an ignorant question but I never shop at Walmart or really pay attention to their sales.

On Walmart.com there are a ton of TV on DVD seasons for $10. The vast majority were sold out online. I went to a nearby 24 hour Walmart Saturday night to see if any of those were in stock in store (assuming the "As Advertised" tag on the website was part of a 2 day sale), and some were in stock but they rang up full price.

Were these prices online only? Or did I miss the 2 day sale pricing even though I got there before midnight? Was anyone here able to take advantage of these prices online with ship to store?

I normally at least glance at the front page of Slickdeals once or twice a day, but I didn't see a thread or anything on the front page. Maybe I just missed it?

OK price on The Unit. I think FoxConnect had seasons at $8 (though I don't remember if they had all of them).

Funny, I've been buying quite a bit at Amazon lately, but haven't seen a single Amazon BF special I had any interest in at all.

Same here and did somebody forget to tell the various online sites at Monday was Cyber Monday?? BF and CM were both duds online this year IMO compared to 2010.

2010 was a lot more impressive, especially at Amazon. Bestbuy seemed better, but it was primarily because of the Ben Hur price mistake.

2010 was a lot more impressive, especially at Amazon. Bestbuy seemed better, but it was primarily because of the Ben Hur price mistake.

Best Buy was the best, not just because of Ben Hur (which was not a mistake), but they also had the best deals overall --- 3.99 BDs, TV seasons, HP and Deathly Hollows BD 4.99 -- all with free shipping.

The coupon mishap made Fox connect a strong second. It would have been second anyway, but that deal really knocked it out of the park. picked up Allly McBeal, Mary Tyler Moore, Futurama, American Dad for around 6 bucks. Misc 24 seaons and Bones seasons on BD for around 10 bucks with the coupon. Actually they should be #1, but I can't give it to them when the deal of the year was at BB.

Amazon was much better last year. This year they PM'd OK, but there were no exceptional deals like the Watchman Owl ship from last year. The closest was the Beauty and Beast Criterion and for me, Wild Wild West complete series. (My only regret was not pulling the trigger on Batman Beyond complete series, but I already own the series -- damn I love that box though)

Barnes and Noble and Buy.com each had their resp. good deals. Deep Discount actually had some pretty good stuff that was not cheap anywhere else. Big Lots was a disappointment after last year, but still picked up some good TV sets (though most of the Charmed and H-5-0 sets eluded me)

Target was a virtual no-show. A few good deals (Shawshank and Dr. Horrible), but was expecting more, esp. after kast year's 8.00 TV set extravaganza.

And then there was Walmart. Some good 5.00 BDs and 10.00 sets, but I doubt most of their deals were even posted.

I saw a week ago that Alibris had Heartland 4 on sale for $36.95. I ordered it and it came today. I think its a good buy because I saw it on ebay for like $50.
