Toys R Us, of all places, has 4 tv boxsets (DVD only) on sale Friday-Saturday for $25.99 each:

Lost: Season 4
Desperate Housewives: Season 4
Grey's Anatomy: Season 4
Ugly Betty: Season 2

Going to go score 'Lost' as soon as I unbury myself from 7 inches of snow that fell overnight.

Great price on Lost, but I've committed to getting the Blu-Ray version when I find a deal on it... Plus I'm buried in more snow than DVDMovieMan...

Well, you could always buy the DVD now and take advantage of this offer when you find the Blu-Ray cheap: http://forum.dvdtalk.com/dvd-bargains/546048-20-rebate-when-you-purchase-lost-season-4-both-dvd-blu-ray.html

I'm sure you could turn a profit on Lost DVD when you upgrade.

Do you think Best Buy will price match these?

I already bought Lost Season 4 from there.

Looks like you can buy them online as well.

I ended up pricematching it at Best Buy... It was not a fun experience at all, but I got it...eventually. They gave me all the excuses in the book but they couldn't provide me with proof for their made up theories. First they tried to say it was a door buster.... I proved it wasn't. Then they said no 2 day sales... So I asked for the manager. 2 cashiers & 20 minutes later, they price matched it. Despite them burning a whole through their Price matching FAQ pamplet, they couldn't find anything written about no 2 day sales or door busters... So, yay, I got my copy of Lost Season 4!And I had the actual TRU ad with me because I had a feeling they'd give me grief. The guy's just lucky I didn't want Desperate Housewives, Greys and Ugly B also! :bmonkey:

Thanks again for posting this! I'm so glad I get to watch it again before S5 starts in January!:bdance:

Oh yeah if any else has problems getting it at BB (and has proof or the ad), try pricematching at Walmart. That was going to be my next stop if they ended up not giving it to me.

thankfully i actually opened this thread up to find out TRU is toys r us. i had always thought that was some random store in other parts of the country... off to my local TRU to check this out. thanks!

I went to two TRU locations before I bit the bullet and went through the price match hassle at Best Buy.

In the end it was worth it (I got two copies), but it probably would have been a whole lot easier if the cover art on the TRU ad had matched the actual box.

Still, very nice deal.

N/M I put lost in my cart, only to find out it wasn't in stock.

Website no longer says "out of stock", and lets you add to cart, but as the previous poster just mentioned, it will then immediately tell you it's unavailable and removed from cart :(

...and NO WAY am I going to a Toys R Us (or any store) on the last Saturday before Christmas!!

I was able to price match it @ Best Buy w/o any problems. I just took the printed ad from toysrus.com. They just had to check w/ their manager, but it was all good.

I got it for $24.79 after the 110% price match.

Thanks DVDMovieMan for letting us know about the deal. :)

Thanks OP for the post. You guys who got to price match at BB were lucky! I went in to get Tinkerbell and got the runaround about how since it was $10 difference and TRU was not listed in their system as one of the stores they pricematch, the manager would not do it. Seemingly when the price difference is over a certain amount, they need to get a manager approval and it is at the manager's discretion. I really do not like that store I went to anyway, but it was just close to where I was at. :(
