Enjoy the crowds and the dented cases. With taxes you're only doing a couple bucks cheaper, not counting the free box which you can reuse and is worth a buck to ya if you're an ebay or amazon seller or what not, plus after gas costs its pretty much a wash

Let's see....
1. Crowds actually weren't too bad and lots of free food samplers.
2. Less chance of a dented case when I can examine before I buy.
3. Taxes in Ohio must be astronomical if you're only saving a couple of bucks between $20 and $15. Since I bought in New Hampshire my tax was $0.
4. I'll give you the box one, 'cuz I actually do reuse them.
5. Since I was there for lots of other stuff to begin with, extra gas costs were nil.

Ah, but think of the mountain of free boxes you can walk away with from Costco! I think you win this one in straight sets.

Doubt they'll be perfectly sized for your DVD sales, plus Ive heard reports of people finding nothing but beat up copies of this title at Costco- so I wouldn't go game set match just yet

While the Costco boxes do go straight into my recycling bin, the copies of CE3K at my Costco were in fine shape.

$15 at Costco, $20 at Amazon and Best Buy... was there an official price cut on this?

Brooklyn, NY Costco had more than 15+ copies and about 60% were in good shape.
