Cheapest place for Fox All Access C.E.'s?

I was interested in getting at least one of the new Fox Collector's Editions for I robot, Man on Fire, and Day After Tomorrow. I saw that Circuit City had them for $17.99, but is there anywhere cheaper? Thanks for the info.

Circuit City is the cheapest that I've seen. Also, there is a coupon for $3 off inside each disc which would bring the cost down to $14.99.

Possibly Wal*Mart as well. I won't know the price here in my area until this Thursday.

That is what I am hoping for, especially with the $3 off.

Instant $3 off coupon on one of them. So each one has a $3 off coupon to purchase any one of them. You don't have to buy all 3.

The coupon is inside or outside the package? Here's hoping I can get to it and just buy one.

What i would do is just open it, and when they ask say u just wanted to check it out, and decided to buy it...

They might give u a strange look... maybe say something like u read online that a lot of them shipped with broken discs and that u want to check it out before u buy it

I don't think ill be picking these up unless there is somethin super special about them, as I already have 2 and haven't watched them as it is...

This has been posted before and it is the best idea plus real easy to do.
It would be nicer if you just buy the DVD, go to the car and open it, then go back in and buy another copy with the coupon, and return the new copy with the first receipt

How can this work? You cant return the open copy becuase they make you get the exact same movie again.

No you return the UNOPENED copy using the receipt for the OPENED copy.

1. Buy copy A
1a. You have receipt A
2. Open copy A, get the coupon
3. Use the coupon to buy copy B
3a. You have receipt B
4. Return copy B (still unopened) with receipt A (receipt of copy A)

Same SKU, they won't know.

After you open it, get the coupon and take the dvd and the receipt back inside and tell them you forgot that you had a coupon. They'll give you your money back for the coupon.

Fye.com has them for $17.99 each with a $5 mail-in rebate on each of them. Plus use coupon code MAYNEWSLETTER2005 for 10% off. The final price for all three would be about $36 depending on tax.

That's exactly what I did with the 2 I picked up at Best Buy. No questions / no funny looks at all....

So can I do this with both Man on Fire and I, Robot at the same time? Meaning, can I get them both, then take the coupons out of both and rebuy the 2 together with 2 coupons?

This stuff is not that hard.
Way too much discussion about what is a trivial math problem.
If you really can't play it out in your head, you probably should not be trying it, just spend the extra $3 and consider it the price of poor math skills.
