ABC Television on DVD Deals?

Do this year's crop of ABC TV on DVD (Brothers and Sisters Season 5, Housewives Season 7, etc.) have any deals as in previous years? Last year, each season set had a $10 off coupon included for purchase of another set, one year there was a rebate program.

Any information?

As with past years, each of this year's ABC TV-DVD titles do indeed include the $10 coupon. I bought Off the Map last Tuesday and it was included, so it should be with all the rest as well.

What titles can use on the coupon? Are they for this year's releases, or can you use them on titles that came out last year?

Some help would be appreciated.

If anyone gets one of these coupons and has no use for it, I could definitely use it. Just putting that out there. Thanks!

Yes, for those who want and don't own Charlie's Angels or The Partridge Family, it works out to a little under $7 each + tax. Amazon had most of these for $8.49 a while ago, so it's not a huge savings. I'm surprised they haven't shown up at Big Lots for $5 or $6 yet (but then Big Lots has been lagging lately).

I can second this. I bought Cougar Town: Season Two and Parenthood: Season Two at Best Buy yesterday and got the $10 gift card.

Re: ABC Television on DVD Deals?

When does this year's coupon expire? I remember last year we were able to get some sweet deals before the coupon expired. I got Scrubs for free, and Castle for 5 bucks...

It expires on December 31, 2011. What was pretty awesome is I went to Best Buy to get Cougar Town & Parenthood, and was planning on using my $10 coupon on Cougar Town. I had figured out in my head that, with the coupon, I wouldn't qualify for the $10 gift card special. To my surprise, I ended up with the gift card anyways, as my cashier rang it up before he ever entered the coupon, which ended up indeed bringing my total to less than $50. It ended up being a pretty sweet deal.

I'm definitely springing for Body of Proof and Castle S3. If anyone else doesn't want the coupon, I wouldn't mind getting one to use...

I'm not... just trying to get clarification before I go out and buy.

he was talking about the OP. But this ended up being a useful thread since many of us did not know the $10 coupons were back. Perhaps changing the thread title could be helpful for others...

Wow! I'm sorry this post made you so angry.....I thought I had done right by including the question mark in the thread title. I could understand your frustration if I hadn't included the question mark and you readers entered hoping to find deals I was telling everyone about. But then again, this is only a message board about DVD deals--no big deal.

Re: ABC Television on DVD Deals?

Is there any way you can tell which sets have the $10 coupon. It's apparent some pressings have them (in-store B&M) but online ones don't.

I've read the previous threads from the previous years, and you can tell which ones have a coupon because there's a special UPC sticker on the back of the plastic. Does that apply to this year's offer too?

Re: ABC Television on DVD Deals?

The g/f bought Cougar Town S2 from Amazon and it did have the $10 coupon inside the keepcase. (She was going to throw the coupon away, but I grabbed it out of her hands.)

The $10 coupon is good on the following:

Off the Map: The Complete Series Aug 23rd release

Brothers and Sisters: S5 Aug 23rd release

Cougar Town: S2 Aug 30th release

Desperate Housewives: S7 Aug 30 release

Grey's Anatomy: S7 Sept 13th release

Private Practice: S4 Sept 13th release

Castle: S3 Aug 30th release

Body of Proof: S1 Sept 20th release

The coupon expires on December 31, 2011.

There was a thread on this last year when Target put them on sale for $19.99 each ($9.99 after coupon if I remember) after Christmas, but before December 31, 2010.

In addition, there is also a $5 coupon attached for Army Wives: S5.

These ABC series are packaged in a semi clear/opaque keep case so you can kinda see the loose coupon floating around inside if you can jiggle the keepcase and spot it from the edges...

From last year's discussion, it seems that only the initial stock had the coupons. Restocks did not, so I guess it is a YMMV as it was last year.

That's a nice deal for Body of Proof since it's a short season. I know I saw Desperate Housewives on the Amazon Visa Chase list as well.

Re: ABC Television on DVD Deals?

This seems to be the week to use the coupons (and perhaps recursively if you find another coupon inside your purchase)
Between Best Buy and Target, you can get for the following after the $10 coupon
  • Off the Map: The Complete Series - FREE (Target price)
  • Brothers & Sisters: The Fifth and Final Season - $10
  • Cougar Town: Season Two - $5
  • Desperate Housewives: Season Seven - $10
  • Grey's Anatomy: Season Seven - $10
  • Private Practice: Season Four - $5? (Target price)
  • Castle: Season Three - $10
  • Body of Proof: Season One - FREE (Target price)

Interesting, did Off the Map get any sort of resolution?
