LOTR:Return of the King (Box Set) - $50.95 Best Price ($79.92 MSRP)

I have already pre-ordered this set from Coconuts when they had a discount going last month. So with tax and Free Ship my final price was $45.04. The last two sets I was able to get at $40 or less so I gotta believe there is a better deal out there.
The release date is not until 12/14/04 so there is time for me to cancel this order if a better deal comes along.

So far the price search engines have this as the Best deals:
$50.95 North American (DVD Price Search)
$53.99 DVD Planet (DVD Price Search)
$54.87 Digital Cranium (DVD Talk Price Search)


B&M Stores
$58.99 + Tax + Ship (Best Buy)
$59.99 + Tax (Circuit City)
$55.94 + Tax + Ship (Target)
$55.83 + Tax + Ship (Walmart)

No Costco price yet but previously I believe they sold the sets for $49.95.

If you have a good or better deal please post. Hopefully this thread will past as acceptable under the new guidelines.

Note: The Coconuts deal was not found through any price search but from a fellow poster who said they got a great deal on the LOTR:EE. I figured they would have a good deal on the Box Set as well.

i doubt a much better deal than $50 will spring up unless some nice coupons become available. i have a set on order at amazon with STL for $50.35, just slightly better than the deals above. . ..

Unless I misread Mr. Kleinman's response, I believe this thread is in the spirit he intended:

The solution to What's The Best Price threads is for people to post the ACTUAL BARGAIN for DVDs.

So instead of.... What's the Best Price for Hellboy: SE, you can post:

Hellboy:SE 30% off at XYZ Site/Store/ETC.

Ahh. Went to sign up. That site is messed up. I tried signing up 4 times! Twice with IE, and twice with Firefox.

Different results each time:
Once, on the "name, address" signup page when I submitted it said I needed to select a form of payment. No where on the page is there anything for this.

Another time, I made it to and filled out the credit card page, and it sent me back to the name address page, telling me I needed to fill it out.

I'm with tjn. He is posting prices at various outlets which is good to compare, trying to find the lowest. He isn't just being lazy and asking someone else to do the work for him.

That isn't my implication at all. I am just bringing to the attention of DVDTalkers my take on the 'New Rule'. That I don't agree with the ban on 'Best Deal/Best Price' threads.

It is not a question of 'lazyness' but one of efficacy.
