All store exclusives and freebies - 3/31/08 to 4/06/08

These weekly threads are for the posting and discussion of that particular week's store exclusives and freebies.

These lists will likely be incomplete until Thursday or so, since DVDs are released on Tuesday and one of us needs to visit all the stores to confirm things.

Links to the master list and to the previous and next week's thread are below.

Volunteers needed: I regularly go to Best Buy, Circuit City, Target, and Walmart; but don't visit the other stores every week. If you work at or regularly go to the FYE/TWEC chains, Costco, Borders, K-mart/Sears, Barnes and Noble, Blockbuster, Hot Topic, or any other store that has DVD exclusives; We'd appreciate any updates you could give us.

I went to Suncoast to get Sweeney Todd, but of course they had no extra steelbooks. I completely forgot to pre-order it...

the SD DVD was completely gone when i went on tuesday night. didn't see any blu-ray, but i wasn't really looking for it since i don't yet have blu-ray. the whole cardboard stand advertising alvin looked to be pretty cleared out, which surprised me. i didn't expect it to be so popular.

Just a heads up about the Alvin & the Chipmunks Target exclusive - the second "disc" is actually an iactivecard. I know many have found those to be a PITA.
