I believe the exclusive BB disc is only in the regular edition, and not the ultimate collectors edition.

yeah, the Matrix bonus disc isn't what I would really call a bonus disc, since it has nothing to do with the Matrix set at all... it's just marketing fluff, more akin to spam really... Just like saturday when I bought Spider-Man 1 & 2 at BB, they put some goofy video-game magazine in my bag.

Any chance of still getting bonus dvds on older releases? Eurotrip and Indiana Jones in particular.

Hard to say. I doubt you'll find an Indy disc anywhere other than Ebay. It really depends on how limited the Bonus Discs are. I can still find the Van Helsing Bonus stickers on many of the remaining stock at BB.

A desperate messure is finding the Full Frame versions of the DVDs. I saw the Bonus Disc that came with Cradle of Life on a Full Screen version of the DVD. Apparently, the Widescreen versions sell-out first. If you REALLY want a copy of a Bonus Disc, some of them might be on FF editions.

This may have been covered elsewhere, but I am really interested in how the business side of these bonus discs works.

What is the origin of these special features? Does the retailer pay the production costs? I know sometimes they are older docus that they've probably bought the rights to, but what about the newly produced ones? Are they docus that were produced for the dvd, but not included, and then the studio approaches the retailer to see if they want to buy it for a bonus disc?

What puzzles me is that some of the products that these bonus discs are attached to don't have many extras of their own. For instance, all of the Star Trek products really don't have extensive extras, when you really add them up. There's always room on the bonus disc for more stuff, it seems. So why not include all that they have produced into the box set, so that it bolsters their sales everywhere, and not just at Best Buy??

I've been picking up bonus discs at best buy occasionally, but its against my nature since I usually buy all my stuff used, or online. It seems to be getting more and more frequent that they do this.

p.s. this thread is invaluable. I hope someone will find the time to compile it all into one updatable list. I buy the bonus discs as warranted by the amount of extras, so I love that I can find that out here. Thanks to the op and all who've provided info.

Open Water

Anchorman (I saw bonus discs in all 3 versions, FS, WS, and the double pack with the fairly decent Wake Up Ron Burgundy DVD)

There was also a Maxim "Girls Next Door" disc at Best Buy with "The Girl Next Door" that I believe isn't mentioned upthread. It's amazing how many of these I actually have -- the only one I missed at Best Buy (if I bought the title) was Dawn of the Dead. In the "early" days of the bonus disc they were on all copies. It is only recently that it's become a bit of a treasure hunt. I had to walk to three displays around the store to find a widescreen "Top Gun" with a bonus disc in it, and the Star Trek can be hit or miss now as well.

I would have liked the Field of Dreams and the DS9, but to me it just wasn't worth the hassle or the big price difference with Costco ($15-$20) on the Star Trek sets.

On the business side, these appear to be "off-the-shelf" or produced in conjunction with the DVD extras. It'd be interesting to know if Best Buy pays a flat fee for these (which may enable them to keep the price a bit higher knowing they have an exclusive) or somehow gets them free due to volume. I'd bet they pay something because it's a great business move and I'm not sure why we don't see more in other chains.
