These weekly threads are for price comparisons of all the big new releases, and the posting and discussion of that particular week's store exclusives and freebies.

These lists will likely be incomplete until Wednesday 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.

It is not actually a documentary, but the Part 2 of the "Seth Vs Justin: Battle For Improvisational Supremacy"....it is just an extra six minutes of them riffing with each other....
Also, it is only on their rental copies, not the retail copies I saw at the store for sale...if you have to have this extra bonus feature, then you will have to wait and pick up a previously viewed copy once they go on sale....

Bestbuy Canada also has the Spudnick Plush, but the one I went to never got their shipment.. They took my name and number down and hopefully they'll hold one for me.

Most likely it's mentioned on the cover, but you can enter the Disney Rewards code to get 2 more plushes (plus shipping) and two helmets at an additional cost..

Also, not sure how exclusive they are, but a couple of retailers in Canada had two scratch and sniff slipcovers for Zack and Miri..

Did you happen to see the disc in person? Afew are wondering in other threads if it contained the same 2 disc contents plus that extra 6 mins feature?

Target advertised (in store only, not in their weekly ad) a "deluxe" edition of Madagascar 2 with an exclusive Dreamworks music CD.
