Ridiculously Cheap DVD sets @ Target YMMV

Found these at the Target in Belton, MO. I bought a ton of Dvd's and when I went back to get more, the signs were down for clearance. I'm posting a receipt scan just in case you all can get the same deal at your store. I'll have to get my mom's receipt but she also got Friends seasons 1-9 and Sex in the City sets 1-6 all for 5.99 too.

Yet again..... YMMV, or ability to persuade.

Oh, you might want to get a permanent host for the image too... all I could find.

OC: 5.99
Band Of Brothers: 5.99
Looney Tunes Season 1 & 2: 5.99
Macgyver Seasons 1 & 2: 5.99
Jaws 30th Anniversary: 5.99

Receipt Scan

None of these things happen at my local Target - about the only time I go is to investigate things like this. But I'll be sure to stop while I make the rounds tomorrow.

OP - how exactly were they marked? Regular prices listed, display signs, etc..?

Wow. Not likely to find these prices at many other Targets. And Jon, I highly doubt you'll get any Target manager to match the receipt. They are pretty strict when it comes to stuff like that. I still can't believe those prices though, especially on Band of Brothers, what a deal.

Would you be interested in parting with the Sex and the City or Band of Brothers sets?

Amazing prices. It sounds like it is an error in that one store. But I will look at my store tonight.

These prices were almost put up at the store I work at too, but we got word that it was a mistake. Corporate is aware of it and many of the sets were already scanning back at their regular price by the time I left work.

Wow, what the heck. Maybe I'll make a run to Target to check, but I doubt I'll find anything. Is this a new Target?

I'm gonna take a guess and say that store in MO is the only one in the universe that had those for that price.

So as soon as I read another poster got the deal I drove to the nearest target. It must be fixed at this point because the price checker gave me the correct prices (marked prices) on Band of Brother, Looney Tunes 1 and 2, Friends, and the OC. This is at the Target store on Victory and Vineland and then I checked the Burbank target and had the same amount of no luck.

and at what time did you go?

BTW all these that apparantly rang up at one price, except Jaws, are all on the same rack (always have been)

I just got back from the Target in Houston Tx on 290, I was hopin for Band of Brothers and The oc. But they didn't scan 5.99. But I did get Looney Tunes collection Vol 1 and 2 and Batman the animated series Vol 3 for 5.99.I scanned almost every tv show dvd but thats all that rang up at 5.99. And luckily for my mother I found 8 seasons of Little House on the Prarie and they all rang up 5.99. I also went to the other Target near by on 529, but none of the 5.99 shows rang up. Thanks OP great find good luck to all.
