Did Target just give up on putting their older stock on sale, or did they just stop advertising it?

No Target exclusive for Heroes this time around?

First, thanks for posting this. However, nothing here for me. Target DVD ads have lured me into their stores, let's see, how often since last Black Friday? Once. Seriously, that's it. Used to be once, twice a month.

That about says it for me too. I visit the store every week to see what's on sale, as far as DVDs are concerned it's been nada. Nothing of any interest whatsoever. This week they had $13 DVDs on sale for $12, my god I'm going to faint. -kd5-

Thinking of getting Kick-Ass on Blu. Is it worth a blind buy?

I was hoping to see some exclusives for Kick-Ass.

Certainly nothing interesting this week except for the Roger Corman titles which are only available on line!

Oh, you confused me, being in a Target thread and all. I was hoping Target had them online for a good deal.

$40 is massively overpriced for Heroes season 4 on DVD. $50 for the BR is a flat out rip-off. Just to be a completist (I own seasons 1-3) and I like to torture myself, I'll get it when it drops below $15, hopefully during the Holidays.

That's sad. But still, at least I can go there and be pleasantly surprised.

My personal favorite sale is when some of the $5 DVDs go down to $4.75.

If they had an exclusive I would have paid. Thank goodness they don't. Now I can just wait for the price drop.

And apparently no exclusive this time. I think this is the first time Target didn't have a Heroes exclusive. No exclusive = no sale

I know the 3rd season didn't have an exclusive packaging. Thats the main reason I didn't buy it after getting the exclusive versions of the first 2 seasons. Did it just have a bonus disc?
