re: Walmart / walmart.com discounts and deals on Blu-ray

My nearest Wal-Mart is constantly shuffling their Blu-ray section around. Currently, there's the main Blu-ray section in the middle of the new release DVDs. Then there are bargain priced Blus in the big "H" display in front of electronics, and a handful of new release Blus mixed in with new release DVDs on an endcap. It's really sort of a mess, the new releases go out of stock almost immediately, and there doesn't seem to be any kind of strategy in their stock other than having a random assortment of titles.

This is something like the third or fourth time they've completely re-arranged their Blu section in the past twelve months.

The WalMart by me now has increased their BR inventory. They still have them spread out in 3 areas but at least I know where they're at now.

I did find Cabin Fever

Walmart exclusive? I didn't know that. What's missing/extra from the regular blu release?

I could be very wrong, but I think I remember a soundtrack CD being included.

For almost all store exclusives, it's only a small number of specially marked copies that are different. Most copies at Walmart, especially now, will be the regular version you find anywhere. Store exclusives are usually hard to find.

Saw the Harrison Ford two-pack of Frantic/Presumed Innocent (2 movies on a bd-50 I presume) at Walmart for $19.98

...on a related note, with the $3 coupon good through 2/28, Pandorum can be had for $16.98 (no sales tax in Oregon)

That is correct - it has 2 oval stickers on the front, versus no stickers on the regular one. There was 3 copies, and the 1 I got was the only one that was an exclusive.

I'm hoping for more Lionsgate Blu rays to be out... Monster Squad and Cujo on Blu Ray for 10.00 a piece would be amazing!

Which sales rack are they located? The Bug H style rack? Or the square one with all the 7.00 DVDs?

My store had Dogma for $10 passed on Cabin Fever since it had less features than the dvd. Still haven't seen any blurays cheaper than $10 yet.

Dogma is $13 at my local WM, tons of copies of the Saw 3-pack though.

Do the stickers say anything about it being a Walmart Exclusive or mention the bonus soundtrack? I'd like to know what to look for.

There were 4 Close Encounters at the Wal-mart I went to last night. One had the soundtrack CD on it and I could tell because they put it between the case and the paper that is put onto the back of the case. You can see the outline of the CD on the back.

Of course, I could be wrong and YMMV.

BTW - That CE3K set is awesome.

It's a template of how Blu should be done. It was one of the titles that eventually made me go "purple".

I can tell you they don't have it at the Quincy one. I'm going to try Weymouth and Hanover within the next week or so.

Anyone know what that saw 3 pack is going for?

They finally put out Monster Squad and Cujo tonight. 8 bucks a piece. You can't really beat that... they are re-arranging my walmart's electronics section tonight so I'm gonna go back tomorrow... maybe more stuff was put out, that saw 3 pack intrigues me.

It was $20.00 if I recall correctly (the pack with III, IV, and V).

Which 3.00 coupon are you speaking of?
