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.

Thanks, updates made.

At Best Buy, Tenacious D: The Complete Masterworks 2 has 25 minutes of extra bonus content. Not sure if it's a bonus disc or if the footage is included on one of the 2 discs already included.

The Disney Store gives you 4 Limited Edition Litographs and a 15% off coupon if you pre-order Wall-E with them.

Haven't seen this mentioned, but Target has an exclusive bonus disc with the 2-Disc edition of Get Smart.

It's called "KAOS Spy Tapes: Revealed" and it just has your standard behind-the-scenes doc that runs about 28 minutes.

I bought it on lunch today. I didn't open it yet, but I'm pretty sure it said bonus DISC. Only $11.99, so seemed like a bargain to me.

10 chains hit, tons of updates made.

Yes.

Anyone spot any exclusives for the Star Wars boxsets? That's the only reason I'd buy these (maybe).

My Tenacious D was only two discs. Are the Best Buy Extras on disc one or two or am I missing a disc?

They are on one of the discs, not sure which one.

I hope not. I was convinced that there would be at least one minor change on these discs, or a store exclusive, for Lucas to get a double or triple dip out of me, but they appear to be exactly the same discs except for the packaging.

Same here. I thought there would be something "unique" about this release and I'd have to get it again. Great to know there's nothing new.

It looks like there's only one more release this year I'm really interested in: The Dark Knight. Of course, I'm probably gonna go all out on the exclusives.

Corrected Barnes and Noble exclusive.

Created this week's thread.
