Best B&M price for Gilligan's Island S3 this week?

I haven't seen any B&M advertisements for this week's release of the Gilligan's Island S3 box set. I stopped by Circuit City, but its sticker price is $34.99. Has anyone seen it anywhere for under $30?

Wow, the employees at your CC must be super-lenient. I doubt most people could get away with matching a membership club price.

It didn't work for me...two CC assistant managers thought about it for a while, then said "No" (probably once they realized they wouldn't have to call BB to confirm stock if they refused outright the price match the ad.) I'm not a big fan of Best Buy, but they are getting more and more of my B&M DVD business because they have yet to hassle me when matching competitor's published prices (as always, YMMV.)

Nor me. CC would match only the $29.99 price, with an extra 10% off the difference: total = $29.49. Not great, but better than any other B&M I've seen this week.
