Man of Steel exclusives & best prices
 
I couldn't find any thread dedicated to the Man of Steel release so I was hoping anyone who had an idea of the best pricing or exclusives would pass the information.



Happy Hunting

Target will have an exclusive digibook which I believe also has an exclusive special feature for 19.99, or 17.99 with cartwheel discount

Thanks for the heads up but what is the cartwheel discount?

Cartwheel is part of their phone app. It has different discounts you can select from and then it builds a scan code that you show when you check out.

The cartwheel coupon for Man of Steel is 10% off.

It does stack with the 5% off using their REDCard if you have one of those.

This seems like a prime candidate for Black Friday.

Doubtful IMO that this will be priced any less than $14.99 for the regular 2-disc BD release. It's way too new to be priced at a major loss. I can't see this being priced at $9.99 or less, that would be absurd.

I will probably pick up the 3D version at Target using their Cartwheel app. Glad I checked into this, since Target didn't list the 3D version in their weekly ad.

That "S" glyph thingy is metal case box set, comes with a display stand. Only down side is there is no booklet or anything included. Just discs.

It would look good on your shelf.

/\ Yeah, I saw that. Debating whether to go for the basic DVD/BR combo and return/rebuy on BF, or if I should just drop the $17.09 for the Target digibook.

But it doesn't come with the bonus disc anywhere else. I DESPISE these retailer exclusives on bonus content!

My conundrum is that I've got a RED card, but also a $200 GC from trading in an iPad. Can I use the RED card to get the 5% off then pay with the GC?

Re: Man of Steel exclusives & best prices
 
Someone on slickdeals wrote a novel on the subject:


Man of Steel DVD & Blu-Ray - best prices, rebates, special features and compilation list of ALL retailer exclusives & deals!
Man of Steel, the Warner Brothers movie that rebooted the Superman franchise yet again, was released in movie theaters on Jun 14th, 2013. It earned over $241 million domestically and over $662 million total, including foreign box office grosses since its release. This is the highest grossing movie in the Superman franchise overall when compared to all other Superman movies since the original Superman starring Christopher Reeve.

This is not the first time director Zack Snyder has tackled a movie based on comic books, as he directed “300” and “Watchmen” as well. This movie will also be the beginning of the proposed DC Comics cinematic universe, with a sequel to Man of Steel already announced in July 2013. You may have heard of it, it will be called “Superman vs. Batman” (or Batman vs. Superman, we don't know the exact title yet.) Much news was made when Ben Affleck was announced as the next Batman, coining a new term, “Batfleck” to describe the controversy this casting news caused. If this sequel goes well, this could also potentially lead into a Justice League movie sometime in the next few years.

Featuring eight nods to the DC Comics universe (like the Wayne Enterprises logo on a satellite) as little Easter Eggs and an ending some people considered controversial, this movie drops on DVD and Blu-Ray this Tuesday, Nov. 12th, 2013. There are a lot of retailer exclusives for this movie, so this New Release Thread will be a little larger than the last one I did for Iron Man 3. Here are all the details:

_______________________________________________________________________

Best Prices:

I did a price comparison on both the internet and this week’s circulars with Amazon.com, Best Buy, Bestbuy.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Buy.com, Costco.com (no listings for some reason), DeepDiscount.com, Frys.com, FYE, FYE.com, Kmart.com/Sears.com, Overstock.com, Target, Target.com, Toys R Us, ToysRUs.com, Walmart.com and WBShop.com. Unless otherwise noted or known by me, the prices are the same in store and online at their respective websites. I noted shipping in the price rankings because of the competition between stores, but I will only be comparing base prices of the movie. Shipping costs will not factor into the price rankings as a result.

Please note that with these price rankings, these prices are as current as I am aware of. Walmart's in-store prices don't always match its website prices, for example. As a result, these prices are as accurate as I can verify from the internet and flyers from the newspaper, I don't put prices in the rankings that I cannot verify.

I fully expect there to be further price changes on Tuesday when the movie is released to stores. I’ll be updating this thread again on Tuesday and double-checking all the prices.

For example, in the past, Kmart.com/Sears.com will presumably sell all versions of a movie, but there are no listings for it online but only in Kmart's circular. So I can only rank the price at the store and not the price on the website. I also know from experience that FYE's B&M store prices are the same as those on their website, so I made one listing for both. In other words, these stores reserve the right to change their prices and I might not know about it. That's where the SD community can help each other out and if new or different prices are verified, I will edit my post accordingly.

A note about Walmart's prices, they have proven to be notoriously regional in the past but I saw the online circular and they rarely have a weekly circular available online. When it is available online, the circular prices in it are national or mostly national. Hopefully, the prices will be national, with little price variation.

I’m making a slight adjustment to my price rankings, as I will now only include the top six prices in this thread. Basically, if a retailers price stinks, it doesn't get to be a part of this compilation list. I will still do a full price comparison to all the stores I listed above, but only the best prices will be included here. So if you don’t see a particular store on the list, it means their price wasn't good enough to be included. It also means that if their price isn't included here, you should go to a retailer whose price WAS included on this list and try to get the other retailer to price match it, if possible.

Here are the conclusions:

__________________________________________________________________________

Don't forget that you can price match any edition of this DVD or Blu-Ray to the store of your choice, if they have a price matching policy. There might also be some store-specific coupons or online coupon codes floating around that could help bring some of these prices down further. Given the price competition for this movie, there are some great price-matching opportunities, especially due to the aggressive price matching policies stores like Best Buy and Target have continued since the previous holiday season.

__________________________________________________________________________

I included as much pertinent information on this new release that I could find so everyone can make a more educated decision on whether to purchase this movie or not, as well as which edition they prefer.

For those of you who read these threads start to finish, there is plenty of detail for everyone. I've noticed that a lot of the questions people put in these threads could be answered if they read the OP carefully. I would heartily encourage you to do so, as it might answer the question(s) you have before you even have to ask.

And that is the end of this compilation, my third New Release Thread for the year 2013. A lot of retailer exclusives this time around, plus a mail-in rebate (!), making it more complicated than the last one.

Remember, if you’re going to bend down on one knee before taking off like a booming rocket into the sky, make sure you leave a crater behind on the ground when you do.
