Thread "instructions" spoilered.
Spoiler:
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 and Target; but don't visit the other stores every week. If you work at or regularly go to the Wal-Mart, FYE/TWEC chains, Costco, Borders, K-mart/Sears, Barnes and Noble, Blockbuster, Toys-R-Us, or any other store that has DVD exclusives; we'd appreciate any updates you could give us. I am slowly "retiring" from my weekly chain crawls, and will need your help to keep these threads useful.

All Stores - Thread for all movie cash and free ticket deals

Best Buy -
I searched and found nothing new.

Target -
Slumdog Millionaire - script packaged to DVD


Wal Mart / Sam's Club -
Slumdog Millionaire - bundled with Millions for $20
Seven Pounds - bundled with Philadelphia for $20
Marley & Me - bundled with photo frame (?which version and price?)
Not verified Tuesday or later. Anyone check?

K-Mart/Sears -

FYE/Sam Goody/other TWEC -

"Lesser" stores with no exclusives this week spoilered
Spoiler:

I was all excited to post about the Blockbuster and K-Mart "Marley and Me" exclusives, but it looks like they've already been reported. Still, I'm glad this stuff is getting covered.

However, I did find a (seemingly heretofore unreported) new exclusive for "Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull" at Blockbuster tonight. In something of a repackaging of a Wal-Mart exclusive, the 2-disc edition comes with 3 additional lenticular "covers" shrinkwrapped to the back of the package. These were the same covers that were glued to the front of the slipcovers of the 3 original Indy movie DVDs sold at Wal-Mart last year, only here it is simply referred to as "collectible artwork" (according to the promo sticker on the front). Anyway, that's that. Kinda weird, but there it is.

iirc, that blockbuster exclusive was reported in.

is it just me? so disappointed that the slumdog script is just shrinked to the retail dvd. tarjay usually has a nice slipcase with different cover art to hold both a dvd and a freebie, but again its prolly the stupid economy ug.

and anyone have a pic of the blockbuster frisbee for marley? im just curious

No photos, internet down at work. But it was a regular solid frisbee, medium to small sized, white, with the basic movie logo/pic screened on top.

I didn't notice this in the store, but according to the promo brochure given out at FYE this week, they have an exclusive tote bag with purchase of Marley & Me. Have at it, fellow hunters.

Wal-Mart also has a Marley & Me exclusive. A photo book (to put your own pics in) or something. It's a side-by-side package with the 1-disc version.
