Armitage Dual Matrix LE lunchbox for $24.99 (Suncoast, YMMV?)

I was strolling through Suncoast today (it makes me feel better about the deals I score buying elsewhere!) when I saw these lunchbox LE's in the clearance section of the store. There were about 8 or so total and were in very good condition, for those who care.

I did a search on this and didn't find anything. Hope this helps!

Wow! That's quite a deal. I don't have a Suncoast near me, but I do have a Media Play. I'll have to soo if I can score one there.

I picked one up in the Columbia, MD store, there were 5 or 6 copies available. Pretty low edition numbers too if anyone cares (mine is #871 of 15000). They were out in the box set section and didn't appear to be "on sale", just regularly priced at $24.99. Thanks to victant for the find!

The lunchbox comes with an action figure, doesn't it?

Sorry. Couldn't check back until tonight.

This is the LE lunchbox, which includes the "Special Edition" of Armitage: Dual Matrix, along with the aforementioned McFarlane figure.

I'm sorry to those who've already purchased this, but I was at Sam Goody B&M tonight, and I found this same deal; however, at the cashier's there was a $3 off any CD or DVD $14.99 and above (OR any video game $39.99 and above). I repurchased this 1) for the better price, and 2) for 396/15000.

Again, hope this helps!

Thanks for the info.

Now I finally have an use for an old Sam Goody gift card. Hopefully the local Suncoast hasn't run out of copies yet.

Found the last lunchbox (11783/15000) at local Suncoast, and used my store credit to pay for it.

I just now noticed a discussion on this on another site about anime on dvd.

HELP! Where are the $3 coupons? I've been to both SAM GOODY/SUNCOAST and I could not find any coupons. I asked the clerk at SAM GOODY's about any $3 off coupons and he looked at me like I was an alien.

I'm in the San Bernardino area. The Sam Goody at the Inland Center Mall had a 5 inch stack just sitting at the register. I picked one up and handed it to her. Admittedly, they said that it only applied to DVD's, to which I said, "But there's a DVD in there." To which she replied, "Oh, but it doesn't work on sale items." When she rang it up, it showed the $24.99 price. She had no choice but to let me use the coupon.

I hope you receive similar luck soon!

And welcome to the forums....

To even make the deal better, you can do like I did - purchase the lunchbox with Finding Nemo, and they'll give you $5 off the lunchbox (or any other regularly priced DVD). Then you can just return Finding Nemo at a later date - they won't "take back" the $5 they already gave you. And voila, Armitage lunchbox for $19.99!

10 or more at the Nashua, New Hampshire Suncoast. They are stacked way up high, beyond human reach and kind of hidden in the glare of the lighting. If you didn't know to look for them, you would never know they were there.

No coupons at the counter though.

I was at Media Play earlier today and found one of these lunchbox sets for $8.99. For some reason they had the lunchboxes in the area with the action figures rather than with the DVDs. They had three of them in all and the one I bought actually had a $8.99 sticker on it. Of the other two, one was marked at $17.99 and the other had no price sticker at all. If you come across the set, it may be worth having them scan it.

I think they were $14.99 or even $9.99 a few months ago.

I picked up one of these a couple weeks back for 9.99, two dif stores had them for same price, so couldnt pass it up, cool looking lunchbox and figure as well. Other than this one, the prices at suncoast are just plain ridiculous. They thing 22.99 is a sale price on a new dvd, and suggested retail is 29.99. I am surprised they are still in business, to be honest, their clearance section is about the only thing in their stores worth revisiting once in a while to see whats dropped.

Bought 2 of them a couple of months ago for $9.99 as well. Thought they ran out of these already since it's limited print.

Yeah. They have been on clearance for over a year now. I picked mine up when it was $24.99 (Ouch!). I saw one with a $9.99 sticker at Suncoast last year.
