I found the display at the front of the Idaho Falls, ID store near the self-checkout lines in case anyone is still looking and hasn't found it in the electronics section.

Wish I liked the RE movies, even a little... They have them all at the Nicholasville Rd store in Lexington if any locals are looking.

Grabbed Winter's Bone... Excellent flick.

Seriously? Holy cow!

C'mon man, you gotta tell us the whole story...

I know. I was really surprised by this. I should have found her manager and told him how happy I was with her, because I've been going to WM for YEARS and no one has ever helped me without asking and when I do ask they have no fucking clue what's going on.

My Walmart didn't have $5 or $7.88 bins but all the titles were in a $10 section. Everything rang up for the correct prices tho.

Picked up The Spirit and Equilibrium/Renaissance.

Yes it was and it still had a pristine slipcase.

The Wal-Mart in North Attleboro MA has a Lion's Gate BD shipper of horror flicks tying in with the release of Cabin in the Woods. No movie money featured but lots of titles for $7.88 each. Here are the titles I recall seeing...

Book of Blood
The Children
The Descent
Devil's Rejects
The Eye
House of 1000 Corpses
Jacob's Ladder
Midnight Meat Train
Saw 1-4
Scream 1-3
Seventh Moon
The Thaw

Swung by that location this morning and they only had two copies of Apocalypse and Extinction left. I bought one of each (the other two were a bit damaged). Extinction was a floater, but I opened it before I left the parking lot and it looks fine.

I had passed on those two steelbooks last weekend because they were already out of the first Resident Evil. Went back today hoping they would have put more in the bin, but no dice. I might have just missed the boat on finding that one. Still, I figured $7.88 was a good enough price for a steelbook and I'd probably regret not picking them up when I had the chance. Hopefully my OCD side won't be too disturbed if I end up having to buy the first film in a regular ol' plastic case.

I picked up RE 1 - 3 at the $7.88 price. They were decent enough and my son really liked them so he can have them. Don't like steelbooks but don't have much of a choice

Plenty of copies at the S Austin location near 71/I-35... I picked up RE 1-3 last night. I almost picked up Degeneration too but then I remembered I'd rather forcibly remove my corneas than sit though that tripe again.

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

I spotted a cardboard stand of Fox comedy blu-rays with movie money for The Three Stooges. There was no price marked, but they scanned at $8 each. Titles I remember:

Dodgeball
Office Space
There's Something About Mary

Was temepted to pick up Mary, but it will probably be $5 eventually -- and I have no interest in seeing The Three Stooges movie in theaters.

Agreed though I may hate steelbooks even worse... So win win for me.

Well, now I don't have to worry. While running errands yesterday, I found the steelbooks at the Danville, KY store. Plenty of copies of everything, but I think I purchased the only Resident Evil steelbook that wasn't scratched and dented.

It was nice to find some kind of bargain today, especially after the bitch at the post office charged me over $6 to return a faulty disc to Criterion with delivery confirmation. I rarely return packages with tracking, but I'm damn certain 2 oz. doesn't cost that much to ship. She screwed up, but still insisted she was giving me their cheapest option. I was already running late and there was a line forming, so I didn't have time to argue with her. Still, I am fuming over being charged that much.

It shouldn't have cost over $3 unless you shipped it Priority Mail.

I clearly asked for the least expensive option with tracking, but of course my receipt shows Priority Mail. She was just covering her own ass by telling me I was getting the cheapest rate possible. If I had time to argue, I would have called BS right there -- but the post office was closing in ten minutes and I just wanted to get the hell out of there. I did sent a complaint to the USPS site, but I'm sure that will be ignored like everything else.

At least Criterion promised me a $10 gift certificate for my troubles.

I'm on Orange County, CA. Can anybody confirm if the $5 bins have been taken down at other locations? I guess this may end up being a huge YMMV. Thanks.

Your problem was asking for delivery confirmation. Delivery confirmation isn't available on First Class parcels at the retail windows. Delivery confirmation is available on Media Mail, but you probably didn't tell her you had media in there. So, your only choices for delivery confirmation at the retail window would have been Priority Mail or Media Mail.

You can, however, get FREE delivery confirmation on First Class Parcel (as well as cheaper postal rates than retail) by using electronic postage. The easiest way to print electronic postage (with no additional surcharges or subscriptions) is to use PayPal's Ship Now:

To send that 2 oz. package via First Class Parcel (electronic postage w/ delivery confirmation) would have cost you $1.64.

American Psycho, Bridget Jones's Diary, Brothers, Adventureland, Alpha And Omega, Iron Monkey, Employee Of The Month, Disaster Movie, Chaos, CutThroat Island, Still Waiting..., The Spirit, My Best Friend's Girl, See No Evil, Kickboxer, Winter's Bone, The Way Of The Gun, Universal Soldier, The Haunting In Connecticut, & The Spy Next Door.
hit a different store and the leftover $5 bds were thrown in the regular $5 bin. after digging I of course found at least a single copy of everything but the two I wanted - Winter's Bone and American Psycho

Did find one Adventureland, so that's good I guess. lots of Chaos, Cutthroat Island, Disaster Movie, and Kickboxer. i.e. the crappy ones. Point being: check the $5 DVD bins...some were surprisingly buried pretty deep.

City of God is 7.88 at Wal Mart???? and so is Dodgeball? I know where I'm going tomorrow!

Edit : I put Winter's bone back and got Kickboxer the other day. Don't judge.
