Target Prices: October 12 - October 18, 2008

HI DVDTalkers!

Got the Target circular for 10/12/08 - 10/18/08 in my hands.

Please be aware of the following:
  • All New Release CD / DVD prices listed are advertised as Available Tuesday 10/14/08
  • Suspected Low Price is listed in parentheses
  • GAMERS: The Wii Gaming System is NOT listed in this week’s ad ….. Sorry!
  • From time to time special deals / prices will be listed in the Store Notes Section & the in the product price thread that may or may not be available in your specific geographic area. This is due to Regional Market Variations of the nationwide ads that I post and as such, not all deals / prices will be available in all Target stores. Please note that this version of the Target ad originates in the Northeast.


As always, ask any questions (except about laptops) and I'll respond as soon as I can.


Sorry for delay. I’ve been hobbled by the FLU. I’ll attempt questions once I get back on track. >>>>> Speedy1961

I was counting on it! Target had a huge price drop like this one shortly after seasons 1 & 2 were released. This time I'll be on the better end of the deal.

According to an AOL article published yesterday, Target is expected to do quick price drops on DVD sets fast & furiously in the 4th quarter in an attempt to get customers into their stores.


I'm glad I waited also.


Here's what's predicted for Target:

Target
Status: Doing well, but still falling behind Walmart
What's likely to be on sale: Target will continue to draw in customers with low prices on apparel, DVDs (including TV box sets) as well as toys and videogames. The chain will have a few deals on electronics, but the bulk of their low-priced items will be on low-cost items for holiday shopping.
Prediction: Look for Target to go low as it senses wallets tightening even more in its core demographic.

That's good to hear. Normally, I'd rush out and pick up a new TV DVD set on release week (like "30 Rock" season 2 and "The Simpsons" season 11 today), but I'm starting to think that now I'll just wait for the inevitable price drop, at least for the more mainstream titles. Although, exclusives are sometimes hard to pass up.

BTW, thanks for all your work here.

I too am intrigued about the special Indy packaging. I think the hours of bonus content is just the regular two-disc though.

And I'll echo Valeyard, get well Speedy! Thanks!

I actually think that for the second year in a row, I contracted the Flu at work in New Haven.

well, if they won't, just return it and re-purchase.
and if you've already opened it, buy the new one at $17.99 and then go back return that new sealed one with your $19.99 receipt.

(and NO, everyone, this isn't some kind of scam - it's returning the same item as was purchased with a valid receipt)

You probably won't have to even do that. I've had no problems price matching stuff on sale in the past.

I didn't know it was a 3 week window to do so. I think I've done it a few times past the 3 weeks with no problems.
