All store exclusives and freebies - 8/26/07 to 9/01/07

These weekly threads are for the posting and discussion of that particular week's store exclusives and freebies.

These lists will likely be incomplete until Thursday or so, since DVDs are released on Tuesday and one of us needs to visit all the stores to confirm things.

Links to the master list and to the previous and next week's thread are below.

Volunteers needed: I regularly go to Best Buy, Circuit City, Target, and Walmart; but don't visit the other stores every week. If you work at or regularly go to the FYE/TWEC chains, Costco, Borders, K-mart/Sears, Barnes and Noble, Blockbuster, Hot Topic, or any other store that has DVD exclusives; I'd appreciate any updates you could give us.

All Stores - ?
Thread for all movie cash and free ticket deals

Best Buy - bonus DVD with Blades of Glory in marked cases only
exclusive comic book with Heroes Season 1

Target - bonus DVD, exclusive packaging, and 4 art cards with Heroes Season 1, contains 45 minute panel Q&A session

Circuit City - trading cards with Heroes Season 1
small quote book with Blades of Glory

Wal Mart - Blades of Glory packaged with Superstar
Kickin' it Old Skool packaged with Airheads
bonus DVD of Bionic Woman preview and 4 FNL episodes with Heroes Season 1

FYE/Sam Goody/other TWEC - iron-on patch with code for exclusive downloadable content with Blades of Glory
free poster when you pre-order Heroes Season 1
I have not been in the store to verify all new exclusives; has anyone else been there?

Borders - I have not been in the store to verify all new exclusives; has anyone else been there?

Costco - I have not been in the store to verify all new exclusives; has anyone else been there?

Barnes and Noble - I have not been in the store to verify all new exclusives; has anyone else been there?

Blockbuster - mini bobblehead with Blades of Glory

K-Mart/Sears - I searched and found nothing, but
gold medal packaged with Blades of Glory

Hot Topic - I have not been in the store to verify all new exclusives; has anyone else been there?

This is week #5 of the new format.
last week: exclusive thread for 8/19/07 to 8/25/07
next week: pending
Link to the master list thread in my sig below.

I haven't had the chance to see what exactly the deal is, but my Blockbuster got a shipment of Blades of Glory Bobbleheads. Not sure if it's paired with the DVD or what.

How does ordering from BestBuy.com worth with bonus discs? I see on promo for Blades of Glory and get another title for $20 mentions the bonus disc.. But if I order the disc individually, what are the chances they'll mail a copy with the bonus disc?
Thanks

i concur. and if you place your order, receive no bonus disc, call bestbuy cs, and request a bonus disc, getting the bonus disc is even iffy-er.

Thanks for the replies.. I should have also asked are the chances increased if I ordered the 2 for $20 deal as the description mentions the bonus disc?
Thanks

YMMV, but I would not plan on getting the bonus if I ordered online, or even in-store pickup.
It doesn't matter what the description says, or what your receipt shows. The packer will just as likely pick up a copy without the bonus.

Of course this'll be moot in a few hours, but it might not contain 45 minutes. The Ugly Betty bonus disc only contained 14 minutes of their Q&A session.

Ok, the blockbuster exclusive with Blades of Glory is a free bobblehead. I've only seen the Will Ferrel character, not sure if there's a Jon Heder one. Honestly not too great of one either, but hell, it's the only non giftcard exclusive they've had in like a year.

At my Wal-Mart, the following exclusive 2 packs this week . . .

Blades of Glory / Superstar confirmed at $19.96

Kickin It Old Skool / Airheads at $19.96 too

Casper's Scare School / Casper 1950's cartoons [about 10 listed on back] - I think this was either $11.99 or $13.99

Sorry to revive this old thread, but could someone please post the content of the Best Buy bonus disc for Blades of Glory? My store still has these, but I'm trying to determine if all of the features on the bonus disc are on the HD-DVD.

I searched many threads, many websites, and even Ebay. The most detail I found said Outtakes, Featurette, Interviews, Bloopers, but there were no specifics. I was going to post this in the main forum, but someone else asked a similar question and was referred to this thread, even though there is no detail in here, and that thread has been locked. Thanks in advance!
