What needs explaining? Maybe I'm missing something but the shelf tag just means they sell the Blu-ray. It's doubtful they sell the Best Buy exclusive version.

There is no Best Buy Exclusive version, it it the same everywhere. This explains why someone was able to return it, the UPC is the same. They probably should have removed the sticker.

It was exclusive to BB for a couple months only, I think that deal is over now. Other possibilities are the manufacturer putting the stickers on too much product, or sending out Best Buy returns to other stores without removing the stickers.

Oh, see, I thought it was still an exclusive at Best Buy. I would say it's possible that Best Buy was told to ship some of their stock to Walmart, and their idiot employees didn't remove the sticker. I've seen that happen before.

More likely, it was a return through distribution to a central warehouse, were it was sent on to Wal-mart.

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

I was surprised to see the 4 Resident Evil movies in Steelbooks at WM, with a bonus disc, for $15 each. I picked up the trilogy, passed on that animated Degeneration one... I believe the bonus disc is the same for each movie though... I know Futureshop was selling these. ilovedeals started a thread the other day about Futureshop carrying these, but that thread was either moved or deleted... These are blu-ray sized Steelbooks, BTW...

Did you find the RE steelbooks? I'm hoping one of the two stores I go to has them, but I'm not expecting much.

The only store in my area I went to yesterday at around 10-11:00am and they had at least 9 or 10 of each on the shelf.. not sure how fast they will go but I wouldn't wait too long if you want to be sure to get them.

Picked up all four tonight.

8 - 10 of each except RE Degeneration...only 3 copies.

Beware of floaters as I noticed several from each group as I searched for 'perfect' copies....shrinkwrap is kinda beatup on the edges/corners on quite a few as well....like the assembly line mech was a little rough with them or something.

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

Went to a few Wally's, no darn RE steelbooks. Sadly, I only want the RE: Degeneration one (since I have the others already in Blu-Ray), but nothing was to be had exception the regular disc for $20. *sigh*.

And I am not paying $25 on Ebay. Reselling bastards. *sigh*

Surprising they haven't shown up for you. I see them everywhere and in great numbers...they've got to show up eventually

Hrmm, maybe I'm just having bad luck with my podunk town Walmarts. I'll try something further up town next week. Hopefully, it will work out differently.

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

What's the difference between the $15 and the $22 versions? I read the descriptions and unless I missed something, the only difference I see is the cover art and the price. All the extras listed were the same and both mention the digital copy and the DVD version. Could the $15 one be a misprint and it's juts the blu-ray disc and nothing else?

I wouldn't be surprised if it's an error and they'll probably send those of us who order the 3 disc combo pack for $15 the single BD one instead forcing us to waste time returning it.

That said, if you preorder from Walmart.com, is it easy to cancel online (without calling someone up) or do you just let them ship it and return it in store? I don't think I've preordered anything from them before, but I'd consider Iron Man 2 if it's the combo pack Blu-Ray version.

Looks like they've got the the prices mixed up for the 3-disc and the 1-disc, who knows which one they'll actually send you. You can always return it to a B&M Wal-mart I suppose if you really only want the 3-disc version.

I just looked at my order and there is a cancel order button.

It's clear on the item page and clear on the email confirmation saying it's the copy that includes DVD and digital copy. Maybe if they ship the wrong one, their customer service will help us to get the right one if we contact them. I've never really dealt with them before, but hopefully they'll work with us given the item details. Anyway, it's well worth a shot.
