I have 2 HWVs within 2 minutes of each other in my relatively small town, and neither had booklets/ads and looked at me as though I was crazy when I asked for them. Anybody know any alternatives for me to get in on this? Maybe a better scan? Thanks in advance, great deal for those getting in on it.

Picked up a booklet at the HW on S. Cobb Drive in Smyrna, GA and then drove over to the Wal-Mart on Cobb Parkway. The cahsier called the CSR to ask if they price matched HW, she came back, told me they did, and I walked out with each set for $19.99+tax each. They also price matched CompUSA's Harry Potter price.

Many thanks to the OP! I went to HV over my lunch break and then went straight to Best Buy and got both Seinfeld DVD sets for $19.99 each, along with two free bonus DVD's.

Am I missing anything really exciting by passing over the big box set?

Anything worth the extra money?

Worked perfectly Total time out of my day was 15 minutes. Once funny part the lady at Wallmart kept the HWV ad so she could show her manager. Oh well I was long gone by then

Much thanks to the original poster.

Worked like a charm in Metro Denver. Picked up an ad book at the Broomfield Hollywood Video, they had plenty, none w/ prices blacked out. Then proceeded to the Westminster BestBuy, and did the pricematch. The lady kind of had an attitude "this particular one always has one w/ me when i pricematch", at one point told me that it would be cheaper to just buy the gift set for $79.99. I quickly pointed out her lack of mathematical skills. She went to have it approved by the manager, which turned into a huddle of 3 or 4 managers discussing the situatuion, studying the ad, holding it up to light, turning it in different directions, etc.... It was pretty amusing to watch. Eventually they decided to go ahead and do it, at which point I made sure to get my 10 percent of the difference as well. This brought my cost down to $18.99 each plus tax. I also got the free bonus disc thrown in, and threw the Enertainment Weekly on for free as well just to spite the attendant who always gives me an attitude. I was worried they would call Hollywood Video, but all worked out well.

It was an easy call to not get the gift set, especially at this price. Personally, I will almost always get the better of 2 editions if it means extra video features and the like (Fight Club, Boogie Nights, etc....) but am not at all swayed by the recent trend of packaging the exact same discs inside of a "collectors pack" along with some cheap nick-nacks at an inflated price. I do not really need a Gollum figurine, Shawshank soundtrack, or Seinfeld salt and Pepper Shakers. No thanks.....

Thanks alot to the original poster, this was a great deal. I don't think this will last too long, so act fast.

Got Circuit City to match the flyer, she didn't call or anything. Also gave me the extra 10% off, so each set cost 17.99 plus tax

The clerk even said she was gonna do the same pricematch for herself, she couldn't believe how low it was

I got the $19.99 pricematch on Seinfeld Season 3 at the Clairemont Mesa WalMart in San Diego. I was going to PM Home Improvement too, but they already had it for $26.56 so I didn't need to.

I'm going to hit a Hollywood Video tonight and try to get the flyer. I'll probably try the PM @ Walmart tomorrow.

I had the gift set ordered at Amazon with STL for $70 and change. At this price, $30 extra dollars for some ketchup and mustard bottles, a deck of cards and a script I'm never gonna read is quite excessive. So I agree, at this price the gift set is a non-issue unless you really want to spend $30 on some Seinfeld knick-knacks.

Cancelled on Amazon and picked em up today at Wal-Mart for $40.

I took the Circuit City route. Grabbed the HV flyer, went to Circuit City (Mays Landing, NJ) and they price matched it without hesitation. As mentioned earlier, it came to about 17.99 a set. What a great deal!!!

You guys going to best buy, did you get the free DVD as well, or have to pay for it?

I didnt open my WalMart DVDs cause I wanted to try to get the free one at BB, WM was my backup. My local CC only got season 1 in, no 3, so that was sunk. I thought Id try BB since I was there buying the Iron Maiden DVD and other stuff as gifts. Anyway, they priced matched it but charged for the DVD, I didnt have enough cash and got one set instead. So I got the DVD free and the extra set I bought is "from my aunt to me for christmas but I already had yet she lost the receipt so I have to return it for credit"

And your welcome to all the "thank yous", just remember to post (or at least just tell me) when you learn of some great deals

I had no problem at the Olympia, WA Best Buy. I did have a copy of the ad with me.

(Also got the Nirvana boxset for Target's $27.98 price without any problem.)

Went to Wal-Mart close to where I work and after the two clerks looked at the ad from all angles they decided to call HV . It was a no go for me. HV informed them that it was a misprint. No matter. Still got another Wal-Mart, a BestBuy and a Circuit City on the way home that I can try.

Thanks for the idea gameover2k2. If BB and CC fail I'll try the other Wal-Mart close to my house on my way to work in the morning. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Worked like a charm at Best Buy in DSM today. Picked up the HV ad after work and went to BB to try my luck.

No hassles and got a long, low whistle from the manager as he looked the ad over. Also got 2 free copies of the bonus DVD and 2 copies of the magazine. PM'd Harry Potter to CompUSA's 12.99 advertised price as well.

Sweet deal! Thanks to the OP!
