Sherlock Holmes Blu 9.99 + tax @ Target B&M

Listed at 14.99 in this week's ad but when I went to one earlier today, it was down to 9.99.

It has been mentioned in one of the sale ad threads and this has been the price of Sherlock Holmes at Target for some time. I checked my local Target on Wednesday and, sure enough, it scanned at $9.99 even though it was marked at $19.99 (not even $14.99). I mentioned to a staff member in the department that they would sell more of them if they had a correct shelf tag, but she didn't seem to care.

I think that Target is matching the Walmart price, but why they don't post it correctly on shelves has me baffled.

A point of curiosity: has anyone seen Sherlock Holmes marked at $9.99 at Target?

The guy in front of me in line bought the DVD of it for $9.99. Good price matching on Target's part, having an equal price with the DVD.

Let us not forget that the Target Version is likely the one with Blu+DVD+DC for $10 instead of the gift wrapped Blu only @ WalMart...

Re: Sherlock Holmes Blu 9.99 + tax @ Target B&M

I had the 1 disc Sherlock Holmes BLU in my shopping cart since it came out, waiting for a price drop and finally, I ordered it for $10.49 at Amazon just three days ago.

EDIT: Despite the Amazon description of "discs: 1" they sold me the 3-disc Bluray, DVD, Digital Copy for $10.49. So, I actually paid less than buying it for $9.99 plus tax at Target locally.

They stopped making that version some time ago. If Target has any combo packs in stock, it is because they have been sitting on the shelf for a while. The only version they are producing now is BD only.

Re: Sherlock Holmes Blu 9.99 + tax @ Target B&M

and there is the worry others have shared that it is really the 1 disc with a slipcover advertising the 2 disc (DVD & DC on same disc)... I have not opened mine yet, but it did feel heavier than the gift wrapped 1 disc from WM..

If you want the version with DVD and DC and have an FYE close by you might look there. They had multiple copies at 14.99 ea.

Re: Sherlock Holmes Blu 9.99 + tax @ Target B&M

I just got my copy today from Amazon and it has the slipcover with the Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy sticker on the front of the slipcover. Is there a way to confirm that I have both the blu and dvd included before I open it?

The slipcover is the confirmation.

Re: Sherlock Holmes Blu 9.99 + tax @ Target B&M

I hate how Warner does that with the slipcovers.... Cause it is like a lottery... If you get 1 with slipcover... you cannot be sure inside has it.. and if it doesn't have a slipcover, you may get 1 with the extra content... I say this because, for example, 1 of the Target stores near me removes the slipcovers... and "throws" them away... what if a slipcover gets put back on.. the version w/o content... I do realize from a business perspective it makes sense.. only make so many slipcovers... and keep the upc the same.. but as a consumer I would like a different way to know what I am getting...

Re: Sherlock Holmes Blu 9.99 + tax @ Target B&M

Last week I got the only Sherlock Holmes from Target that had a slipcover with the combo pack sticker on front. It was even in 1 of those plastic cases so people couldn't switch slipcovers. But who knows if anyone switched it before it was in the plastic case. I haven't opened it yet because I'm not convinced it's the combo pack. When I shake it, I don't hear anything to make me think there are 2 discs (not that you can really hear unless there's a flap inside), and I can't see inside it well enough to tell.

I figure it is the two disc set since I did order it online so no chance of someone switching slipcovers. Did the single disc have an insert? I can see some type of paper inside my copy. WB should just use two different UPCs.

Re: Sherlock Holmes Blu 9.99 + tax @ Target B&M

The one I bought was two discs. One Blu and one DVD/Digital copy combo. No slipcover. No mention of the DVD or DC on the packaging. Wouldn't have known it until I opened it.

For those in the Columbus, OH area interested in picking this up, the Target on East Broad Street in Reynoldsburg still has 3 or 4 copies with slipcover. Obviously I can't guarantee those are all the combo pack but the one I bought was. Just make sure to look for it on the regular shelf, not the endcap.

Is the price still $9.99? I check target.com, it is out of stock.

I just came from Target. They had the Blu-Ray version on sale for $14.99 - I double checked... twice. The DVD version was $10. They had them with slipcover and without. I bought neither.

Re: Sherlock Holmes Blu 9.99 + tax @ Target B&M

I went to my Target at lunch and all of the blu copies to Sherlock Holmes had mysteriously vanished. It seemed really peculiar (I found spots for the discs but no copies) since nothing else was out of stock. Like almost it might have scanned at that price had I found a copy. Dunno.

The Target closest to me had several titles out and there were a lot of shoppers. I got the last copy of Ice Age 3, which I really wanted.

Re: Sherlock Holmes Blu 9.99 + tax @ Target B&M

My Walmart had Sherlock Holmes and The Blind Side for $10 each (in a special gift packaging).

Not sure if they were single-disc or the BD/DVD/DC.
