FWIW, it has been reported in another forum that Target B&M's has this set for $19.99.

Seriously? 50 cents? I pay more for a can of soda out of the machine at work.

Actually SD is reporting it's in the upcoming ad for $14.99.

I canceled, but I'm going to be disappointed if it's a price mistake that Target won't honor.

That BTTF trilogy for $14.99 is sweet if its correct. Is there separate releases for these movies?

My BTTF is tied to the $8 off promo for 2 movies and they shipped the other one already. That discount is $2.45 so my guess the BTTF one is for $5.55. go figure.

That's for San Antonio. Depends on the area overall here in Texas. Here in Austin, it's 8.25%.

For me, it's usually a curb or rope that I didn't see.

Cities have tax too in certain states. Here in Seattle, sales tax is 9.5% between State and City tax.

Re: Amazon Discounts and Deals Thread #7 (is it #7? I'll pretend it is)

Well, what to do...what to do...

I just think that the $14.99 price point might be for the DVD set, but it is possible it could be for the blu ray set.

If the stores currently have it now in stock for $19.99, then the $14.99 price seems valid.

Gonna be over that side of town today, so might be stop in and see if it is $19.99 and pick one up. Then if the $14.99 price does appear to be so, then I can stop by there next week and get a price adjustment.

Would I actually need the set with me to get the price adjustment or would the receipt do suffice? If I get the set today I plan on watching them before the weekend.

I can't imagine you would need the set for a price adjustment, but you could always take it with you and leave it in your car trunk just in case. The important thing is to bring the receipt while the sale is on and do the PM within 7 (or 14) days of purchase (I don't remember which it is at Target). It's definitely wise to buy the BD set now, don't open it, and then either PM it or return it if it's only the DVD set on sale. It's a moot point for me since I got it $24.99 from Amazon last BF.

If it's a sale on the BD, then they will probably run OOS quickly but they might give rainchecks.

If that's the case, I'm buying tonight. I was in at $25. $20 is excellent. $5 back will be a nice bonus.

Nope, not really any reason to unless Universal wants to let people only buy the first one.

My Target still has BTTF at $34.99, so I'm just going to stick with my Amazon order.
