(DEAD) The Office S2 - $17.99 at CC (YMMV)

I just got back from the Circuit City in South Portland, ME and their tag for the Office S2 in the New Releases section of the DVD displays had it for $17.99, which I'm guessing is what S1 is supposed to be selling for this week. But the UPC on the tag is the same as on the box, and it rang up at the counter for $17.99. I'm not sure if this is unique to this store, or a chainwide error, but I figured I'd let you know about it just in case it is the latter.

It was the same for me this morning. I picked up a copy for the same price at the Wilmington, DE (Concord Pike) store.

Damn, so pissed there's not a Circuit City in midtown Manhattan near my office. I'd be all over that.

it was the same in Lake Zurich Illinois
I was suprised and happy at the same time
the tag does state The Office Season 2

that was then turned to sadness as neither Best Buy in the area had received Lego Star Wars II for the PS2

Me neither, so I just now hopped the express train from Grand Central to Union Square. $17.99 on the tag on the shelf, and on my receipt!

Now I have to explain to my wife why I didn't get the one at Target with Jenna Fischer's Video Blog bonus DVD. Hopefully she'll understand and agree that it can't possibly be worth an extra $17... maybe someone will put it on YouTube.

I'm actually contemplating hopping on the subway to the CC on the UWS, as that's my neighborhood store. In fact, I think I'll head there now. What the heck.

Good, I'm glad to see that it isn't an isolated incident at my store. I was happy enough to be getting it for under $30, but I was thrilled to see the price on the shelf, especially considering the $39.99 on the sticker on the actual packaging (which I assume it will be selling for next week).

Any confirmation from the West Coast? I'm planning on heading over to my local CC but I can't go until lunch.

My vote for deal of the week....BIG THANK YOU to Kingtopher. I was going to wait on this down the road...but who could have hoped for $17.99. Thanks again

Thanks to the OP. I was going to wait until after work, but figured I better go try to catch the pricing mistake before it's corrected. I picked up a copy in Cary, NC.

The CC price thread has S1 for $17.99 and S2 for $29.99 I believe.

Thanks OP! That's a great price for this, so I better head off to CC if it turns out to be a mistake and they correct the price.

Just picked up the last copy in Baton Rouge. The CC folks had already taken the sign down, but hadn't yet fixed the price in the computer. I doubt this lasts much longer.

This is how it was posted in the price thread...

The Office : Season 2 >>>> $29.99 ****



****Circuit City Exclusive: 3 Free downloadable cell phone games with the purchase of The Office: Season 2

I can confirm it is $17.99 in San Diego... great deal since the price sticker on it says $38.99.

Ugh. I went to Target because of the bonus disc, since I figured an extra three bucks or so over CC's listed price was acceptable. What's worse is Target and CC are in the same complex here. I actually had to drive past CC to get to the Target. I'm gonna swing by CC later on and see if they've got it for that price. If so, looks like a Target return for me.

Sorry, I meant that I had posted in the price thread earlier; not that it was listed for $17.99.

Seems to be a nationwide mistake...

Just picked it up in Orlando, FL! (Waterford Lakes)

I think they were starting to catch on, as both the person behind me and in front of me were sporting the DVD and the cashier tried to get me on the price "How much do you expect this to be?"
"$17.99"
"Where did you see that price?"
"Uh, the flyer?"
... luckily he didn't have a flyer at his desk to double check. There were 2 copies left when I left 2 minutes ago (I literally am right across the street).

You da man Kingtopher. Just picked this up in NYC for $17.99. There were no signs or anything with the price on it, so I just took it up to the register and it rang up at $17.99. Sweet.

Also picked up the new SW releases with free lithographs for good measure.

I'm surprised this price mistake hasn't been caught yet, but I am sure it will be by the end of the day.

Picked this up at the CC in Orange, CA for $17.99. There were no signs but they had plenty of sets and didn't seem to be wise to the mistake.

Thanks!!!
