Exactly. I wish it was the regular version cover art.

If anyone sees it and gets a chance to take a picture on their phone, please post Thanks!

I wonder how the brains of Target employees are working sometimes.

"Hmmm, the studios are making these slipcovers, but probably for no real purpose. Our company is putting these special exclusive stickers on these same slipcovers, but probably for no real purpose. So let's just throw them away (or rip them up, or bind them up so tightly the cases bend)!"

I'm not a slipcover fanatic like some here, but I wonder if anyone in our slipcover threads is having an aneurysm over this behavior.

Someone posted a picture of it in the 2012 thread in the HD Talk section:

http://forum.dvdtalk.com/10030133-post46.html

I was glad to see my memory is still pretty decent, as it turns out my description of what it looks like based on my brief encounter Tuesday was actually fairly accurate!

This post will list all DVD exclusives and freebies found for the release week of 3/07/10 to 3/13/10.

New release price comparisons in their own weekly threads.

Thread "instructions" spoilered.
Spoiler:
This thread is for the posting and discussion of all DVD 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 trade 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 -
Barbie: A Mermaid Tale - doll (not exclusive, just a regularly sold doll free with DVD purchase)


Wal Mart / Sam's Club -

i didn't bother picking the exclusive up because of this same reason. every single 3disc version had that horrific tie-wrap on them, ruining the packaging. they put those asinine spider-wraps on all blu-ray special packages, ruining them. when asked, they simply reply that it's policy. whatta bunch of dumbasses.

I still can't believe people buy anything that's presented like that....and I used to work there. I mean, unless you're just a friggin' PIG with your discs, you'd never treat them or their packaging this way.

Dont know if someone posted this before, but Walmart has some of the 20th Century Fox 2 disc titles with exclusive coasters:

Mr.& Mrs. Smith
I Robot
Man On Fire
Wall Street (20th Anniversary Editions)

Also Walmart will have exclusives for the following masterpieces:
Available on 5-4 -10


Available on 4-17-10


Also how come no one mentioned Blocbuster had an exclusive for the spanish horror film TimeCrimes, it includes an bonus alternate version of the film.

Re: All DVD exclusives and freebies - 5/31/09 and ongoing

I was just curious, how does a canadian (such as myself) go about purchasing something from a store that's only in the states? is there anyone here reputable and trustworthy that someone can recommend to actually go to the store and purchase it for me and then mail it to me? Would love to get these types of little things (extras included) for my little daughter

That's probably you're best bet, ebay/amazon market sellers being perhaps the only other real options.

I would not recommend ordering exclusives from a company website, as you often will be sent the regular version.

While I'm sure Trevor could recommend some fine people, you might want to look at trading some service, as well. Canada gets some exclusives of it's own (Future Shop Steelbooks being 1 example) and i'm sure you could find someone for mutual benefit.

I've done very little trading here actually. Almost none actually. We do have that trade thread here, linked in every weekly post, but I'm not sure how much actual trading takes place.

Canadians and Americans trading their exclusives with each other sounds like a good idea.

Jezhead, I take it that you don't have any relatives or friends that live in the lower states?

Back.

Very sway. I hope Wal-Mart does more. Picked up their steelbook case with bonus disc for "Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day".

Here's the screenshot; two featurettes...



"Saints Off Script" is nineteen minutes. "Back To Boondock" is nearly twenty-one minutes.

i believe it is a regular retail doll that is sold everywhere, but can be had for only $5 when purchased with the dvd. if the doll were a tarjay exclusive, the deal would be much sweeter imho, but its not meh.

jez, id recommend making a wtb (want to buy) thread in the trading forum for some of your needs. look to pay whats fair - at least in the beginning, dont ask for someone you dont know to do the favor of cost plus exact shipping. but id also suggest shying away from paying greedbay prices too. if you are lucky, perhaps you can build a long-term relationship with a dvd-buddy

also and for the record, walmart had an exclusive for the barbie dvd: on-pack charm bracelet. kinda cute methinks.

i dont recall anything else at tarjay or bestbuy today.

Don't laugh. I'm glad you mentioned it and will buy it next time Blockbuster has a 5 for $25 or better sale.

Only have one corporate Blockbuster near me, and they claim to have not gotten it.

Anyone else?
