All store exclusives and freebies - 8/03/08 to 8/09/08

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.

All Stores - Thread for all movie cash and free ticket deals
tons of free movie deals at various retailers, see the above linked thread for full details

Regarding the Nim's Island, here's alittle more information from the splash page:

Plus, this faraway tale of a brave 11-year-old comes with the children's hardcover book Nim at Sea. It's the follow-up to Wendy Orr's novel that served as the foundation for this delightful fantasy film. The book is packaged only with the widescreen DVD ó a Best Buy exclusive set.

Don't know anything about this bonus DVD in the Bestbuy Canada ad. I don't believe we normally get any bonus DVD that is not already available somewhere else at an US retailer..

Looks like no bonus DVD at Bestbuy Canada.. Just the Nim at Sea book..

Futureshop has a collectible postcard and sticker with Nim's Island

The Real Canadian Superstore has a bonus book that sounds like the one Target is getting with Nim's Island..

Also saw these Dreamwave animated DVDs with 2 Kung Fu Panda pins, 6 in all..

For the Bestbuy exclusive set with figure, did they include the 3 slimpack cases collection? Or are they regular releases cases in there?
Thanks

Thanks for the updates everyone. There are several more updates to be made, but I left all the packages at home. I'll add what I can from memory, but some may be missing until I get home tomorrow.
