Also, don't forget everyone, you can get a free $10 off manufacturers coupon for the Ponyo BD/DVD combo pack at:

http://www.ponyocoupon.com

That would make it only $14.99 at either Target or Best Buy, which is $3-5 dollars cheaper than just buying the DVD version!

In case anyone is not familiar yet:

www.PonyoCoupon.com - Save $10 off the BD Combo Pack with Coupon (Valid 3/2 - 3/9)

$15 + tax not bad but I was hoping somewhere would have it for $20 before coupon but I guess that would be too good to be true.

Thanks WMA!

You know, even if one doesn't own a blu-ray player, there have been many cases in the last year where it is cheaper to buy the Blu-ray/DVD combo than the DVD alone.

I have a feeling ponyo might be around 20 dollars at walmart. Their in store price usually is lower than the online price for new releases. I know I got UP on blu-ray there for 10 dollars with the 10 dollar coupon there last year. Hopefully we'll get the same deal tomorrow.

You may be right, Walmart often has pretty low unadvertised prices.

But you got hosed on Up. Should have gone to Target, it and Monsters, Inc were free (or better) after coupons.

Thanks for the table, Trevor. I'll have to check Walmart for Ponyo before I PM Best Buy for Targets's price on Where the Wild Things since I have a $5 RZ Cert. I love the BR/DVD Combo packs.

I just pre-ordered the Where The Wild Things Are Blu Ray yesterday on Amazon for $19.99 - they've matched Target!

Does anyone know if the DVD that comes in the Blu-Ray/DVD combo the single edition disc or the 2-disc collector's edition?
