United 93 LE - 19.99 (Circuit City)?

I was on the Circuit City website this evening, trying to figure out where the best place to buy the United 93 Limited Edition on Tuesday would be.

And on the CC website, it says the LE will be 19.99.

http://entertainment.circuitcity.com...&catOid=-13219

Whether it's true or a screw-up on the website, I say print the info and take it to your CC on Tuesday! I did the same thing for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory when the store tried to pawn off the 2-disc for 22 bucks, I showed them the page, and got the film for that price. And believe me, as excellent a movie United 93 is, I really don't feel like paying the same rip-off price for the LE that I had to pay for Munich, Jarhead, and Cinderella Man.

It's just a mistake though. The other one is $24.99.

I think I'll preorder it on their website. My CC credit card will take care of the 5% sales tax, but what could I order to get free shipping? Any ideas?
Also, for people preordering this you could use e bates and get an additional 2% cashback.

Ah, you're right. Maybe it's not a mistake.

I wouldn't count on the 2 disc LE being readily available in stores. No B&M store around me got in more than one or two of the Cinderella Man, Jarhead, and Munich LEs. The three CC in my city never even got any of the Munich or Jarheads. Ordering online is probably the best bet to getting one.

I have a quick question. My CC pre-order says it's backordered. Is this a normal thing for pre-orders with CC? I've never done one with them before.

I think so because a cd I got to get free shipping has the same release date and says backordered.

Hey. For the person that ordered the LE from Amazon, could you provide the link?

It's currently unavailable, but my order is still good. I would click on the "notify me" button and continue to look elsewhere.

I also got a backordered status from Circuit City and have a suspicion that this order will not be filled. If the BB price is within $1-2 on Tuesday morning, I will buy it there instead on opening.

13 posts and nobody has gone off topic and said "I wish the studios would stop with the seperate 1-disc & 2-disc versions blah blah blah"?

I was going to use the CC print to price-match at a BB or something, but I doubt I'll be able to find this release anywhere, even on release day. So, I pre-ordered mine from DDD, since the LE is now missing off a couple of sites (Amazon, Wal-mart)

FWIW, my order now says pre-release instead of backordered.

My backordered item is also being processed. I didn't expect it to happen, so it is nice to know.
