Rome BR $37.49 / Harry Potter combo pack $11.99 YMMV

Target is accepting the Best Buy ad pricing this week for the Blu-Ray versions of the HBO programming as well. Rome is listed as 42.49 in the circular and combined with the Target $5 coupon it brings the price down to $37.49. Due to the large difference between their price and the BB ad, the system requires a manager to approve it so it may be a big YMMV depending on how busy the store is and how much the manager cares. I was also able to PM the $16.99 Harry Potter BB ad to Target's BR/DVD combo and use the $5 coupon to bring that down to $11.99

Someone posted that Rome was $64.99 on Blu. Which is correct?

Rome Blu-ray is $64.99 at BestBuy.com.

The Best Buy ad shows the standard def. Rome for $42.49.

This is a very YMMV. In theory, price matching is for the exact same item, but if the cashier isn't paying close attn or can't read, I guess it might work.

Again, very YMMV... Good luck for anyone who tries this...

P.S. Looking at the ad, blu-ray dvds are featured in the top half of the ad with the HBO 50% sale below. The Rome standard def dvd is featured for $42.49, but I guess if you only glanced at the ad you might assume the whole page was blu-ray pricing.....

That's not even a legit deal then. I wouldn't try ripping off Target.

Last I heard, Target won't do % OFF price matching, only $ amount.

Almost nobody matches % off....but with the prices listed it's more of a traditional PM.

But the prices are only listed for the Standard Def versions. This only works if you can trick them into thinking those are the blu-ray prices.
