Thanks for all the work Trevor. Looks like I'll get Princess & The Frog at Best Buy, unless they refuse the printable coupon again. Hopefully the book is small like the one they released with Enchanted.

Me too, although the cheapest price will possibly be TRU.

The Book is published by DK same company as the Tinkerbell 2 Essentials book. Hopefully will match and be hardcover too.

New Moon is so expensive for being a teen movie. it should be around $15 for the 2-disc and $17 for the 3-disc @ Target.

Seems like the free book at Best Buy for The Princess and the Frog is valid on Blu-ray purchases only according to Best Buy's website.

Re: New Release Price Comparisons - Week of 3/14/10 to 3/20/10

You don't have it listed in the table, but along with their 2-disc exclusive version BD, Target will also be selling the regular 1-disc version of New Moon on Blu-ray Disc for only $19.99....

Also bear in mind, the $22 (BD regular) and $25 (BD steelbook) price points for New Moon at Best Buy are "doorbuster prices" that are only good for the first two hours of business on Saturday morning....after they are open for two hours, the prices jump up to $25 for the regular BD and $30 for the steelbook BD....

Here's a list of coupons you can use to purchase Astro Boy, New Moon, Twilight in Forks, The Princess and the Frog, Bandslam, etc.

Can someone help me with printing one of those redplum coupons? It won't print for me. Does that work anywhere like a manufacturer's coupon? Thanks.

You may be able to get these prices as well after midnight with using the in-store pick up option (for those who's store will not be open for the midnight release). I've seen it happen before but cannot remember for which title it was but it was for a big release.

The New Moon Wal-Mart Fan Edition DVD is $25 and the Fan Edition Blu-ray is $30?


Also does anyone have the prices for South Park Season 13?

Try using IE if Firefox doesn't work. I had to do that when printing a couple coupons. Also check at the top of your browser page to see if there was any messages about your browser blocking an add-on as it does require a coupon printing program to be installed. The program keeps track so that people cannot print more than 2 copies of coupon using that computer.

It's a regular manufacturer's coupon, so it should work fine.

The Best Buy doorbuster prices should work for both midnight and Saturday morning. I remember they did that with Transformers 2 (?).

Hey Trevor, just realized your chart is missing the Target standard Blu-ray for $19.99

Thanks for that awesome complex chart this week!

Woops Thanks!

Trevor, here's Twilight in Forks prices:

Best Buy: $12.99
Target: $9.99 (Get a $5 Target GC when purchased with New Moon on same receipt)
Walmart: $12.86w
Amazon.com: $12.99
Deepdiscount.com: $12.57

If you buy New Moon at Target, you get Twilight in Forks essentially free after using $5 coupon and getting $5 Target GC.

That is correct, $25.00 and $30.00

"South Park Season 13" is $29.86 at Walmart (cheapest I've seen thus far) and $29.99 at Best Buy and Amazon.

Re: New Release Price Comparisons - Week of 3/14/10 to 3/20/10

Thanks for all the info this week everyone. All the choices this week is making my head hurt.

As much as I hated the first Twilight (worst movie of that year), and think the sequel is probably worse, I imagine I'll be buying two copies tomorrow, Walmart and Target, and maybe Borders. Curse this addiction!

I'll probably end up 'having' to buy multiple copies of last year's worst movie, Avatar, as well.

Dude, seriously....you really do need help...I don't care what exclusive versions or limited editions are offered, I wouldn't buy any movies that I hate, much less more than one copy of it!
