A Very Long Engagement 2-Disc SE $10 @Target 2/19-2/25

From the weekly Target $10 sale emerges a new face:

A Very Long Engagement 2-Disc SE (from the same director of "Amelie")

If you don't wanna sacrifice your time, effort and patience for Columbia House, or if you are not lucky enough to reside near San Jose's Fry store, then this deal is probably by far the best national B&M one.

Is this a non-advertised, in-store only sale? I'd love to grab this movie for that price, but don't see it in the ad. Does Target often have sales on DVDs that aren't advertised?

Here's what you should know about Target's weekly $10 DVD sales.

Normally some popular $14.xx DVDs are grouped into two and most of them are put on 2 seperate shelves, one near the check out counters and the other in the DVD area. Target will promote each group every other week. This week will be group A, then next week will be group B. This has been going almost non-stop for quite a long time. Every week Target only puts selected titles from a group on the flyer. So if you want to know all the sale titles, you have to go to the store and find them yourself. Some of DVDtalkers are kind enough to post the newly found in the weekly Target Ad thread. The same way works on the $7.50 DVD sales.

Every now and then Target will get rid of some titles from each group and add some new ones. A very long engagement is the new one deserves to be mentioned separately.

According to this Fry thread, the price is $8.99. I don't live in California so I suggest you ask the OP of that thread to confirm it.

Thanks! I've been waiting since it came out for my local library to get it in, and so far they have not. I do really want to see it, so I think I'll go pick it up tomorrow.

Thanks, OP.

Thanks for the heads up. I've been wanting to get this for some time now. Picked up a copy at the Reston, VA store earlier today.

NO, it isn't. Warner doesn't do inserts anymore.

OP, Thanks for the deal. I will still probably get it through CH though, as I don't go to Target much anymore, and this ends tomorrow. I missed it!

Dammit, Target just closed 4 minutes ago and I just saw this thread.

I'm sad.
