Showgirls VIP Edition - Best Price

For those who are interested in this camp classic, the best price seems to be Circuit City at $24.99. This even beats the best on-line price from DDD ($26.10). If need be you could take CC's ad to Best Buy ($29.99) and price match.

Post any good or better deals.

Buying that would be about as embarrassing as buying a porno. I can only imagine the looks people would give you as you walk to the register.

I would have to disagree with your accessment. This was a mainsteam film which is not a good film at all but became a very successful rental and purchase DVD when released by MGM a number of years ago. Who rented and purchased this film? Mainly "regular folk" who don't rent or purchase porno videos. Many mainstream stores like Best Buy, Circuit City, etc had this film in it's original form for sale. All MGM is doing is capitalizing on it's popularity by releasing this very unusual edition. It remains to be seen who will buy it but I don't think you'll need to wear a trench coat when you bring it to the register.

I guess you're going to have to wait about another year, then.

Nah, he'll probably only have to wait about another five months.

Perhaps it will get similar pricing treatment as recent "silly" deluxe boxs like scarface, spiderman and schindler's list and start showing up for ~$20 in a month or two.

Rob: Maybe so. That would be great if it only took 5 months for them to release a new code! It's okay 'cause I don't need anymore dents in my pockets too soon.

I'm hoping for the same thing. The Schindler's List deluxe box set is already around $20? Can you give me a few locations or a few links? I'd really appreciate it! Thanks.

their first 20% off coupon sale was in late Nov/early Dec last year for th Christmas shopping season.
the one in June was fairly unexpected (by me).
i would certainly expect them to run another sale before Christmas this year.
the only question is- will their average prices increase any before then?

I am tempted to pick this up. It is about the same size as the Scarface set, and the extras look neat. The "pin the pasties" game sounds interesting.

$26.10 is probably the best deal at DDD (no tax or shipping). Sure it's $24.99 at CC, but after you add tax and the gas to get there and back, it's not really that good of a deal unless you have to have it Tuesday morning.

DDD.com will probably drop this to $24.89 on Tuesday to beat CircuitCity.com's price by $0.10.

Can the DVD be purchased by itself?

There are some amazon marketplace sellers with good feedback ratings priced under $20 on this set (with $2.49 shipping).

DDD changed their price already. They have it for 24.89 with a "Free Deepdiscountdvd.com T-Shirt" promotion.

Smart promotion. Now you can discern who is a pervert by their t-shirt. Saves time and effort.





Oh, and before you ask... yes, I'll be wearing one too.

Exactly! Just hope I get my T-shirt. It does say limited supplies & does not show it in your order.
