Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

The DVDs are listed on my receipt as "Sony Vivendi DVD". That should give a clue as to their main focus this time around.

Absolutely nothing at my local store. Searched in all the usual places and the unusual ones as well. Finally asked the cashier as I was leaving who indicated they didn't have any DVDs currently.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

There is a reason stores didn't have them...they were put out too soon! Couldn't find any at my nearby dollar tree, saw a manager looking type putting stuff out and asked about the DVDs, and he said they didn't have any...yet. I said I had read on the web about all this great dvds folks were finding and he said those stores(and some regional/district managers care more than others) had gotten in trouble because they aren't supposed to be on sale til Friday. Seems like an odd day, but he said they are the deal of the week, and you should have the deal of the week that has been advertised....so your local store may not suck...they were just doing the right thing. Of course, someone can still come in at 9:01(or whenever they open) and clean them out!

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Appreciate the heads-up, berigan. Might drop by again. If I find them then, I'll be sure to tell the cashier that I'm sorry for thinking that their store sucked.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

DVDs at my local stores disappear like nothing. There was a girl working there whose dad setup at a flea market. Whenever they had DVDs come in, she would let him know and he'd buy everything they had on the shelf. My other closest store very rarely gets anything. The last time I saw on here that people were finding movies, I went over there and no one knew what I was talking about.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Went to a store I'd never been to before, they had a couple stacks of DVDs in a basket with bags of popcorn. A whole bunch of copies of 1408 (fullscreen) and The Great Debators, 1 Johnny Cash and a couple other titles that they had maybe 3-4 copies each of that I can't remember. I'd be pumped to find any of the Dragon Dynasty titles for $1.

Nothing at the recently re-opened Greenfield, MA store. Will check again Friday. The "Deal of the Week" was a hardcover book.

Nice find on the widescreen version of 1408 since I must have looked through over 50 copies of that title and all were foolscreen...

There was also some type of innercity "Caesar" dvd I passed on {forgot the title}...

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Found about half of the titles in that list today. No Ned & Stacey, but I did score the only copy of Party of Five, and Beautiful People. Some of the titles there had UPC slashes, but nothing I bought did... I actually debated long and hard over buying some of the titles. After I got home I was like "DUH, it's only $1 each! I should have just bought them!"

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

I stopped by the only Dollar Tree near me yesterday. I assume all of these DVDs listed are normal sized DVD cases and not slim ones? I only looked through the normal sized ones of which they had maybe 6... 3 of which were Far Cry. I really only wanted Party of Five and Great Debaters, and I found 1 Party of Five dropped behind the wire rack at the back which is the only reason it was still there. Other than that my store had pretty much diddly squat of the normal sized DVD cases.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Looks like the earlier report was correct in that some stores simply hadn't gotten them or put them out. Stopped by this morning, and it appeared a brand new display at been set up front and center as I entered the store.

Picked up:

Beautiful People: Complete Series
The Contractor
Dead Broke
The Great Debaters (2-Disc) - UPC slash on each of the 2-discers I found. I don't think the single disc versions have the slash.
The Johnny Cash Biography
Ned and Stacey: Season 1
Party of Five: Season 1
Roxy Hunter and the Mystery of the Moody Ghost Movie (includes DVD, Secret Diary and Roxy Rocks! - I have a daughter, which I made sure to point out as I was checking out. )
Spooky House
The Stone Angel


I picked up an extra copy of Beautiful People, Ned & Stacey and Party of Five since I figured those would be the most desired by folks here (still leaving at least a copy of each behind). I know this thread isn't necessarily the place to offer these, but if anyone has an interest in trading for them, PM me a list/offer. I also don't mind selling them at cost, plus shipping, etc. but I'd be more interested in trading (though there's probably no other Dollar Tree titles I'm interested in at the moment). Thanks.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

I got Ned & Stacey and Beautiful People for $3 each from Big Lots around BF. I don't know if they are still around at those prices at BL because I so rarely go and look at their same-old same-old DVD section. At only $2 more than Dollar Tree it's not too bad if you can find them. Of course I'll guess these are probably difficult to find anywhere. Dollar Tree is scarce in my area so I have nowhere else to look for The Great Debaters. Oh well. I'll survive without it.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Sure enough, they had a display at the entrance today. I picked up:

Beautiful People (2 copies - 1 for Amazon)
Running With Scissors
Finishing the Game
How to Rob a Bank
Rent Control (FF, but I'm a sucker for Sabrina The Teenage Witch)

The girl at the register said she got a copy of Party of Five. There was no PoF left, and no Ned & Stacey. I have a horrible memory, but there were some that weren't in this thread, including RFK, and a Barack Obama dvd.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

I went at opening this morning, and scored Ned & Stacey, and the 2-disc Great Debaters. With these, and the few I found the other day, I think I'm set. They were still setting up the display. 2 cases were out, and 4 more were being put out. I waited until all 6 cases were out, to make sure I didn't miss out on anything.
