Gah. I knew I should've waited before buying that $14 used copy of Passion Definitive. When it didn't turn up at Costco this Easter season, I figured I was in the clear. Oh well. Go get these great editions of these great films, folks!

Just as a headsup, the Passion of the Christ pictured is NOT the one that is actually on sale. I spoke with the store manager at my local K-Mart and she out right refused to sell me the Definitive Edition DVD for $9.99. Even going as far to say that the one pictures in the ad wasn't what I had in my hands because it didn't have a "special features" sticker on it. Luckily Best Buy did a price match for me.

I was also able to price match at Best Buy, so this may be the way to go. I'd complain, though.

Our Super K-Mart had the Definitive Edition of "The Passion of the Christ" on sale for $9.99 as pictured in the ad, with sale tags on the shelf, so your store manager was dead wrong.

But they did not have any copies of "The Ten Commandments" (or of the other advertised DVD, "Ben-Hur"). When asked, I was told that they "might" be in Tuesday.

When K-Mart doesn't even have advertised items in stock, it's small wonder they're having problems.

I was amazed that I had no trouble finding a parking place right in front of the store Sunday.

To see a store this large have so few customers on a busy Sunday afternoon (the Walmart down the street was packed) was a shocker.

I have never had a good experience at a K-mart. I went there today just to get the flyer for pricematching. I knew that they would not have the DVDs, the chance of finding anything that you go in looking for is maybe .1%. They did not have a single regular flyer in the store. I found one spanish version flyer and took that to Best Buy to pricematch.

They have got to be the most unorganized, poorly managed store around. Circuit City comes close though.

You would think, with the number of times K-Mart has been fined over the years for improper pricing, they'd bend over backwards to make sure you got exactly what was in the flyer...

K-marts prices are always higher than Wal-mart and Target too.

I ended up shooting an e-mail to their customer service. In return, they said they were going to send a copy to the store manager to have them resolve it. Not what I was expecting considering that it was the store manager that was the trouble.

K-Mart does suck. I had a similar experience yesterday after work at my local K-Mart. The manager told me the Passion of the Christ DVD I had in my hand wasn't the same as the one in the ad because the one in the ad had a Restricted Rating banner and mine didn't! I said, "Restricted Rating means that it's rated R." She said, "No. That means it's a different DVD that we haven't gotten in yet." Arggghh! Needless to say, I told them I'd be taking their ad elsewhere to price match. They said, "I hope you have a nice day, sir." LOL. I was pretty mad.

My Kmart in Erie, PA did the price match for The Passion - Definitive Edition. It took a little checking on the clerk's part, but they eventually gave it to me for $9.99.

They didn't have the 3-disk Ten Commandments in stock, but I had no problem at all having Walmart price match it for $9.99. It was so easy, I wish I would've just priced matched The Passion at Walmart instead of dealing with Kmart.

On a plus note, last week this same Kmart had Charlotte's Web on the shelf a week early. I was tempted to pick one up....but at $19.99 with no bonuses, I figured I can wait until Tuesday...

They truly need to get their act together. But their ad did provide me two great deals this week (which is 2 more deals than typical)...

You should have said - "OK - give me a raincheck and I'll come back and get it when you get it in".

Yeah, that crossed my mind, but I'd already waited 10 minutes for her to come back and tell me that garbage. I didn't feel like wasting more time for a raincheck that I wasn't going to come back for anyway.

I took their crappy ad to Circuit City today on my lunch break and they sold it to me for $9.99 without question.
