I just got back from Kroger - attempted to scan Hot Fuzz after swiping my Plus Card and it didn't register any discount at checkout. Is the deal no longer active or was I just unlucky?

I went to a few Fry's within the past 2 days. Only one of them had them on sale at 50% off. The others were the full price listed.

I don't know where you are located, but I don't think the discount is across the board at all Kroger stores, because here in Richmond VA there is not yet any additional discount even if you use your Plus card....

Deep & Gizmo-

Thanks for all your help.

Found two Ralphs last night in the Topanga Canyon area that had quite a few HDs left. Suffice it to say, I grabbed them all.

Before I rang them up, I asked the cashier to scan my card and price check the first title. As he swiped my card, he told me the titles were 50% off. Much to his surprise, they rang up at 75% off. He asked me if there were any left and I told him nope.

Accepted
Balls of Fury (2)(*)
Children of Men(*)
Eastern Promises
Elizabeth: The Golden Age
Hollywoodland
I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry
Slither (2)(*)
Talk To Me (2)(*)
You, Me, and Dupree(*)

I have extras of a few of the titles, if anyone is interested.

Found a few more at another Ralphs. These were displayed at the checkstand. They only had 4, so I bought them all. They are 75% off with the Ralphs rewards card.

Prices listed reflect the 75% off.

HD/SD combo disc Accepted $1.25
HD/SD combo disc Dazed & Confused $1.00
HD/SD combo disc The Good Shepherd $1.50
HD/SD combo disc I now pronounce you Chuck & Larry $2.00

Can't go wrong at these prices...

Congrats to you both. I admit, I'm jealous... Those are super bargains indeed. I have a friend in Orange County. She checked 3 Ralph's for me yesterday, but found no HD-DVD's at all...

EDIT: She went to 2 more Ralph's last night, and finally scored me some. I don't know what she got other than Breach and Slither, but she got like 10 titles...

Re: Kroger's Cheap New HBO DVD's and Unversal HD-DVD's (YMMV)

Picked up a few more today over at the Ralph's on the corner of Coldwater Canyon and Burbank Blvd. in Van Nuys.

Hot Fuzz
Breach (2)
The Good Shepherd (2)
Mr. Bean's Holiday
Fearless
Evan Almighty
Alpha Dog

Just on a lark, popped in and found them in a black wire mesh bin in the front of the store with a 75% off card attached to it.

Makes going to Fry's rather difficult now that I've been bitten with the 75% off bug.

Re: Kroger's Cheap New HBO DVD's and Unversal HD-DVD's (YMMV)

I've been to 4 Krogers and haven't been able to find any HD DVD's at any of them... are there any specific spots to look for these things? i.e. by the magazines, customer service or anywere else? Any help would sure be appreciated. And, if anyone in the DFW area knows of a store that has some, please let me know.

A couple of stores I went to had cardboard bins with a large stash of children's books on top and some HDs were underneath.

I've noticed at some of the stores that they're being placed in the Sony 2 for $20 display if the number of HD discs are low. Another place to check are those black wire multi-tier mesh baskets that hover around the end-caps located in the front of the stores.

Those cardboard bins are disappearing from the stores in this area.

At the Fairborn,OH Kroger's a few days ago I picked up from the display Moonlighting Season 3 for $5.99. It was cheaper at Big Lots($3.00) a while back but I never saw a copy there for sale. Bought the only season 3 at Kroger's I saw, but 2 copies of Moonlighting Final season was still there for $5.99 when I left...
