Dollar General $5 Sony Double-Packs

From Nov. 30 - Dec. 6 Dollar General has Double Feature packs of either two movies in one case or two separate cases wrapped together for only $5. Ad link: http://www2.dollargeneral.com/Ads-an...ngs_All_113014

I picked up:

* A League of Their Own / The Natural
* The Mask of Zorro / The Legend of Zorro
* Air Force One / In the Line of Fire
* Groundhog Day / Stripes Extended Cut
* Donnie Brasco Extended Cut / We Own The Night

Also saw (IIRC)

* Silent Hill / Quarantine
* Bram Stoker's Dracula (Coppola) / Mary Shelley's Frankenstein (Brannagh)
* Don't Touch The Zohan / ????
* The Devil's Own / In the Line of Fire (I think; it was on two sets along with the AFO above)

Selection (like mileage) varies, so happy hunting.

Re: Dollar General $5 Sony Double-Packs

My store yesterday didn't know anything about these, but I didn't know they were in the ad, or I would have showed it to them and made them look in the back. I'll try again today...

Re: Dollar General $5 Sony Double-Packs

Thanks for the heads up. I stopped by a local store this morning. Picked up the League/Natural, Frankenstein/Dracula, Zorro 1&2, and Brasco/Night sets. The first three came with UV codes as well, so an even better deal.

Re: Dollar General $5 Sony Double-Packs

Thanks for posting, OP. The nice thing about this deal is there seems to be a Dollar General in every small town making it possible to check multiple locations, no matter where you live. After looking at a couple of stores, the only downside seems to be these aren't in great quantities from what I can see.

For those looking, I'm separating what I found based on whether they're in single BD cases or 2 BDs packaged together

Single Case
Groundhog Day/Stripes
Donnie Brasco/We Own the Night
Legends of the Fall/Les Miserables ('98)
A League of Their Own/The Natural

2 Separate BDs
Karate Kid I & II
Premonition/Untraceable
The Devil's Own/In the Line of Fire
Walk Hard:The Dewey Cox Story/You Don't Mess With the Zohan


I also noticed Silent Hill/Quarantine along with Silent Hill/The Grudge. Another not mentioned yet that I recall was 2012/Godzilla

Re: Dollar General $5 Sony Double-Packs

Picked up:
Ghost Rider / Hellboy
Groundhog Day/Stripes
Donnie Brasco/We Own the Night
A League of Their Own/The Natural
The Mask of Zorro / The Legend of Zorro
Dracula / Frankenstein

They also had:
2012 / Godzilla (I already own)

Would love to find.....
Air Force One / In the Line of Fire
Karate Kid 1 & 2

NOTE: These were not out on the floor. They had them stashed in the office and I had to show them the ad for them to bring them out. I asked why and they said that it's because when they put these out, they disappear (theft). Make sure you inquire with an employee if you don't see them out!

Re: Dollar General $5 Sony Double-Packs

I found mine on the regular DVD/BD rack along with the other laughably overpriced stuff. Thanks to those adding their finds; I remember seeing those now, but couldn't recall when posting.

Re: Dollar General $5 Sony Double-Packs

I saw these and would have sworn I saw Stripes/Groundhog Day as a back-to-back pack but now I can only find the double feature in a single case.

Anyone seen it other than a single case?

Re: Dollar General $5 Sony Double-Packs

Just a heads up. If you buy anything right now at Dollar General the receipt should print out a coupon for $5 off $25 valid tomorrow (12/6/14) Saturday only.

I have checked a few different DG locations to see what each one had. I was also looking for more of the back/back shrinkwrap releases since I prefer individual cases.

I finally found a store today that had quite a few and went ahead and picked up Karate Kid 1 & 2, Are We Done Yet/Daddy Day Camp, and In the Line of Fire/The Devil's Own.

Found out about this when I got home this afternoon and looked at my receipt. Got Air Force One/In the Line of Fire - A League of Their Own/The Natural - 2012/Godzilla along with just over $10 in food/drink. If I would have known this ahead of time, could have just bought say the food/drink (which I needed for tonight) then came back tomarrow, bought the movies and $10 more of food/drink and thus got one of the two-packs for free. (The nearest Dollar General is only a few minutes away from me and I would be traveling past it anyway in my travels tomarrow - so I wouldn't be going out of my way to save $5.00 - sigh.)

Re: Dollar General $5 Sony Double-Packs

A few interesting things for $6 each today:

Easy Rider digibook
Silverado digibook
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 with lunchbox

Saw 2 of each, passed on all, & kind of regretting it.

Re: Dollar General $5 Sony Double-Packs

Anyone looking for one of these packs and want to trade? I have seen most of them except, of course, the one I would want. The Karate Kid. Let me know. Thanks!

That's why, when at all in doubt, just buy. You can always return later.

Picked up these at my local Dollar General, along with "A River Runs Through It" digibook, all for $6 a pop.

Checked 2 locations tonight on my way home. The first location had 2 The Mortal Instrument gift sets stuffed into one of the media racks. Then there were several of the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs/lunchbox sets on a shelf just inside the door along with a single Steamboy DVD gift set.

2nd store had all of those along with a single copy of the 3 digibooks mentioned above.

Re: Dollar General $5 Sony Double-Packs

Went to 3 or 4 DG's yesterday to use the coupon on the $5 double packs, but didn't see any of the digibooks. Hopefully I'll see some this week.

One of the stores I visited (and maybe the other as well) definitely put them out today. Because, like you, I was there yesterday with the $5 coupon checking out the double packs.

Re: Dollar General $5 Sony Double-Packs

Forgot to stop by a DG today but for those wanting a $5/$25 coupon without purchasing something in advance you can sign up online for coupons on their site. They usually update the expiration date each week. You can add the coupon to your account online or on your phone. Just make sure you sign in using the phone number you provide when signing up on the payment keypad when checking out.

I stopped at a couple earlier last week and bought the Karate Kid I & II set along with the Dracula and Frankenstein 2 pack.

Re: Dollar General $5 Sony Double-Packs

I was fortunate. Discovered a store with a single copy of the 3 digibooks earlier in the week. Tucked them behind some DVDs on the wire rack and was happy to see them there this morning. So using the $5/$25 coupon, I had them along with the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 set for $4.75 each...not factoring in the peanuts I bought to get me over the $25 threshold.
