Amazon has it for $78.99 and Deep Discount has it for $81.76. If you wait till the DD 20% sale then you can hopefully grab it for around $65.40.

I think CC has it for $79.99 + you get the 1-disc CD soundtrack free.

If you don't absolutely need to get it right away, keep an eye out at places that sell used DVDs and have B2G1 sale. I remember a couple of years ago, seeing The Civil War and Jazz for about $50 each at a EB Games, but I didn't get them since I didn't have money at the time. By the time I did, they were gone.

HI,

Fye has it for 59.99, that is the price after a 10.00 rebate and if you use the paypal 10.00 off. May be a good deal for some.

For anyone in Maine or New Hampshire, Bull Moose Music, an independent music, movie and games store has the War set on sale for $64.97 for this first week of release anyway, though that may be the permanent price.

The following is a list of locations for anyone who is interested:

Great find, but obviously a price mistake. I smell futility in this one ...

I got an order in for $27.99 but expect it will probably get cancelled. However I'm keeping my fingers crossed it will go through.

i've bought from this place through amazon marketplace (they are a 3rd party seller); competitive prices, and have always treated me right (refund for a damaged dvd). i really can't say whether they'll let this go through, though.

i'm in for one. thanks OP
