I missed out on the Righteous Kill/Traitor movie money online with purchasing some $3.99 DVDs. Now the promotion will be in store, so I'll have to take advantage of that.

Thanks, Speedy!

Wow, I'm kind of disappointed in the Little Mermaid III deals. Best Buy has the only exclusive, and it's a cup. So either get it at Circuit City or essentially pay a buck for a cup

Glad to see the Nightmare Before Christmas set in the ad. It shall be mine. And considering the price, I don't think I need to get there right at opening or anything for fear of them running out.

I'm surprised Best Buy is charging $5 more for Heroes Season 2 than CC and Target. I'll be price matching CC's ad to BB since I don't feel like spending the extra $8 at Target for exclusive bonus material.

Ooh, I'll have to do that. I waited on Get Smart too. 25% off $23. That makes it about $17, right?

Also, heavy week. I'll be picking up Heroes at Target or CC, unless that Kensei mask is awesome, but it doesn't look so. Is that the only perk to the BB gift set?

I'll be picking up Chaos for $4 as well, and that'd trigger movie money too! Very nice! Thanks again Speedy!

EDIT: Any limit on the movie money Speedy? Can I get tickets to both with 2 dvds? Thanks!

My guess would be a Fun Run t-shirt and a "Support the Rabid" bracelet... but that's completely a guess.

I know it was not as good as season 1 but I will buy the Heroes Season 2 DVD set to complete the collection.

I don't know if that gift set will have any value since season 2 was a letdown unless it was a comic con exclusive like the 300 set last year.

I preordered it at Best Buy just in case if all the geeks line up at the store at 7am on Tues to buy that set and sell them at ebay.

The ???? notation refers to a brief description of the product in the hopes of answering any basic questions you might have about the set.

The price is correct at $119.99
