Well, it looks like I'll be keeping my Bambi pre-order from last year when they have the $10 off coupon going.

More information on the "exclusive bonus disc":

"Runnin' Wild: The World of Disney Animals" featuring Kyle Massey (who?) and Chelsea Staub (who?).

Not worth the effort IMO.

I wouldn't mind seeing Faster but I'll probably either wait for a price drop or rent if anything. Other than that nothing.

I liked Faster, but it wasn't a love thing for me. Personally, I'll wait for it to hit $10, it's not worth retail.

Thanks OP!

Glad Love & Other Drugs is slightly cheaper at Target.

Bambi for me, as my local Target tends to have a much easier time with coupons than my local Best Buy...

Re: Target Media Prices February 27 - March 5, 2011

Target has a few $10 Blu-Rays on sale as well:

Resevoir Dogs
Terminator 3
Robocop
Superbad
Pandorum
The Crazies
Transporter 3
The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3
Edge of Darkness
Australia

are some of the ones I remember seeing.

I picked up Edge of Darkness and The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3. Pelham also includes a Hollywood Movie Money sticker on the package where you can get $10 off for Battle: LA or $5 off Movie Concession (Like anyone is going to use that one)

The sticker is a bitch to remove. When I picked it off, I tore the sticker in half and had to look at the special code backwards.

Pelham and Edge of Darkness were $9 last week.

Is the bambi bluray w/ extra disc specially marked?
I was at target and it didn't have any display or box that mentions exclusive disc.

Re: Target Media Prices February 27 - March 5, 2011

Target's exclusive DVD is indeed a joke. The disc sleeve promises trivia games and a drawing lesson, but the DVD has neither. What you really get is 19 minutes of the two aforementioned hosts quizzing each other on Disney animal trivia and trying to draw Thumper as they banter moronically and promote their shitty cartoon. The disc is 4:3 and letterboxed to 1.77:1 (most of the clips cropped) and has both Closed Captions and subtitles. It comes shrinkwrapped to the case and the copies with the exclusive have a different UPC and are marked with a sticker on the front. It makes a passable coaster.

Re: Target Media Prices February 27 - March 5, 2011

Yeah, not a good disc.
I went to a different Target about 5 miles away, and they had tons of blu-ray with the exclusive disc. Can't believe its non-anamorphic widescreen DVD. Plus the content sucks too. Maybe little ones will like it, but definitely not worth it for adults. But hey, it's free.

But, it sucks that Target taxed me before the $10 off, making the price to be about $15.
I remember Best Buy charging tax after taking $10 off on Alice. Not a big deal, but still.

It's not like Target is making $ on taxing you. They are just doing it according to the laws in your area.


But I always think i've been taxed after the coupon was added, because It's a sales tax.. and the sale should have been for 12.99.. not 22.99.

Re: Target Media Prices February 27 - March 5, 2011

My local Target started tossing the slip covers to fit the discs into their glass cases, so it was easy to spot the exclusive disc without the slip. I went next door to Best Buy and picked up a slip covered copy with the coupon. Sounds like I made the right decision on both counts.
