Glad to see the price coming down on this series (for at least the first volume anyway). A very good, underrated "Trek" series IMHO.

My Walmart didnt stock them either. They seem to be rotating their TV on dvd stock every month. Last month, it was STar Trek Voyager S1 for $19.99, and now I don't see these anymore

Re: Star Trek Enterprise Season 1 - $19.99 at Wal-mart

Sorry, but this is still not correct. Walmart's are not carrying this title in their store ... the same three stores in my area are not carrying and countless other members here have verified that stores in their areas are not carrying.

Perhaps the OP needs to search the forums, otherwise, they would have realized that this particular item is being talked about in another topic.

Just creating a topic and saying that stores are carrying it is misleading at best. Do you research and doing a simple search on Walmart's website will tell you if stores in your area are carrying it.

When you click on the item you're looking for, if the entry doesn't give you a list of stores in your area that carry it, then that means that it is not being sold in the stores in your area.

If the entry says, "Find in Store — Information not available. Check store for availability," then that means that it's not available.

SO.......basically you are calling the original poster (and kenbenobi as well) a liar? Nice...

Good grief...all he said was "Found this at my local Wal-mart yesterday." He never wrote "I guarantee you that EVERY SINGLE WALMART STORE across the nation has this"......

I thought it was a given that it is always YMMV with Wal-mart.

Funny, that's the same season I need the bonus disc for as well. I had it in my hand a few years ago, but the plastic case was badly deeply scratched. I told myself I'd find a better one, but I never found another...

It isn't misleading at all! WM stores ARE carrying this title. Is it every WM? Of course not! The DVD inventory at each store is always different! Typically the Supercenters have a larger selection, but that isn't always the case.

If you want the item, then you have to search for it. The odds are that one of your local WM's will carry it, if you live in an area with multiple stores. If you would take the time to check the Walmart Bargains thread, you will see that MANY people have found this at their local stores.

BTW, the online store checker is fairly accurate, if you know how to read it. Obviously, you don't. On the search page, it clearly tells you if a title is:
Available In-Store
Not Available In-Store
In Limited Stores

If you look at the following link, you will see that Season 1 says IN-STORE! Seaons 2,3,4 say NOT Available In-Store:
http://www.walmart.com/search/search....y=0&Find=Find

As for ST: Voyager, you can see that S1 and S2 are In-Store, S3 is in LIMITED stores, and the other seasons are NOT available in-store.
http://www.walmart.com/search/search....y=0&Find=Find

That's how to read the website. So please don't try to teach us, when you, yourself, don't understand.

Everything at every retail store is YMMV it seems.

I see all of the other bonus discs pop up at used places or in my infrequent ebay searches, but can never find that darn 4th season of Enterprise disc. I want to watch the whole series soon, but can't start until I get that set....

You can save a search on eBay that will email you when it finds something. I've used this on several hard-to-find things. With patience, you should be able to pick it up at a decent price.

Re: Star Trek Enterprise Season 1 - $19.99 at Wal-mart

kenbenobi, you posted the wrong link. I'll show you how:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/3619994

As you see, it's not available ... and it also lists the price at $49.99.

It's always quite entertaining how some people think they know everything.

Re: Star Trek Enterprise Season 1 - $19.99 at Wal-mart

One of my local W-M had 2 of them about 3 weeks ago. Passed but decided to go back and get 1 the next day and both were gone. Asked the W-M employee about them and he said that an outside company stocks them for them and didn't know if they would get any more. Few days later the sticker was removed and something else was put in its place. Didn't see them at any other W-M in my area.

Thanks! I actually have 100 of those set-up, but am just lazy and only check those emails once a month or less. Except for the once a year or so when I go on insane ebay buying sprees and buy about 50 things in a weekend.

You dont have to be a confrontational dick ya know. Yes I know your post here was pointing out something that was incorrect but your first post comes off as prickish. The online trackers stating if something is in stock or not isnt always correct. Hell at BB.com it wont say in stock if they have less than 3 there.


EDIT: PS heres a link for Babylon 5 at WM.com. http://www.walmart.com/search/search....y=0&Find=Find

Its wrong as well. They do carry the series at least near me for 20 bucks a pop. But the site says they are over 40. So who is wrong?

That's funny, because that's exactly what you're doing. The OP never said at it was at EVERY Walmart. A Walmart 2 hours away from me carries this title, but the Walmart closest to me doesn't.


So why don't you stop being a dick?

No, I don't find you entertaining at all... I'm sure you're just being an ass on purpose. I tried to show you how to effectively use walmart.com's information. If you refuse to look at the facts, or are too stupid to understand, so be it. I'll just ignore you from now on...

The online prices rarely match the store prices, so you can't really try to compare those. The only thing I use wm.com for is to see if they carry a product in their stores or if it is online only. Occassionally wm.com has a better price, so then I'll do Ship to Store...

Both of his posts were prickish. I didn't post anything incorrect. He just didn't want to admit that my links proved he was wrong...

I totally get that. Thats why I threw that link up there. K's post saying that the link was wrong and that made your information incorrect was foolish and easi;ly rebutted.

PS to OP thanks for the heads up. Going out today and search around a bit. Maybe find some other stuff that Kei can tell me Im wrong about.
