2 Disc Re-Releases of Fight Club, etc.: anyone seen these at a B&M besides Best Buy?

The nearest Best Buy is 90 miles from my house, so I have checked every B&M around: Circuity City, Walmart, Kmart, Blockbuster, even FYE, none, zero, zilch. I have seen these at amazon.com and dvdplanet.com and that is it. Has anyone saw the digipak releases of ID4, The Abyss, or Fight Club anywhere besides Best Buy? The reason I'm asking is because I have a coupon for $3 off Abyss, ID4, Planet of the Apes (2001) digipak releases, but I can't use it unless I find a B&M store because it's an in-store coupon.

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe that the re-release was done specifically for Best Buy at their request, so they might be the only option.

Why only B&M? You van get it online at bb.com with free shipping for the same price as the store.

Good luck!

But I want to use the coupon I have. Plus, I'd much rather buy a dvd instore. I'm very unlucky when it comes to buying new dvds. Meaning, the chances of a dvd being scratched are far greater for me than most people. I think it is some sort of curse. So that's why I don't buy online that much, for fear that the disc(s) will be scratched. It's a much bigger hassle to do online returns than in a B&M.

But I've seen these at dvdplanet and amazon. So if they can carry them, then everyone else should get too. Too bad the Abyss re-release is still non-anamorphic.

No Borders, no fry's, no costco, no nothing. The only other places I can check are Target and Barnes and Noble. But BN's dvd prices are about as bad as buying them from any store in the mall.

I guess when you mean "SOUTH" you mean like Antarctica GL on your search.

Best Buy.com items can be returned to any B&M store, so long as you have the invoice. No hassle.

I guess I have been lucky. I have purchased well over 200 online, and have only had one arrive slightly scratched, but it did not affect playability, luckily.

Good luck!

The digipak releases still haven't made their way to either of my local Walmarts.

1 title I hope FOX re-releases in these type of # digipak's is "Patton". The old 2-disc is OOP and non-anamorphic, and the 1-disc is anamorphic, but doesn't have the documentary. FOX, please re-release this one!!!
