Today only this set is $12.75 (or $12 if you have the Target Card).

OK $8 is a little annoying.

I see $15 from my computer. Still, I'm the one who got burned this time. Bought it on release day for $25, ordered it from online for $20 (on sale) with the intent of returning one to the store for my $25 refund, now they price the motherfucker at $15 not 11 days after initial release (and already one price drop, now two)???

Are they going to give the fucking thing away next?

Yesterday everything was an extra 15% off online for Cyber Monday.

I fully expect this will drop again and end up as cheap as $10 just like S1 did. I'll be retuning two of these sets myself since purchased at both the 24.99 and 19.99 price points figuring I could just return them if the price dropped.

Re: Stranger Things - Season 2, BD/DVD retro VHS packaging release?

Decided to do something about this issue. Printed up my online receipt for the $19.99 copy I got, took the $24.99 copy (w/ store receipt) and $19.99 copy back to Target today (we were out & about anyway). I'd called beforehand only to find out they don't do price adjustments. Went into the store, bought a copy there for $14.99 (they had to price match their website), took the $24.99/$19.99 copies to customer service and returned both for refunds. So, in the end I got this for $14.99. If they do mark this down to $10 before this receipt runs out, I'll do the same damned thing.

Are copies at B&M stores not ringing up the same price as the Website?

^ Price on the shelf was the regular price of $24.99, I only assume it rang up at that price because they went through the motions of looking up the price at the website, after I asked them to of course.

Finally decided to open up my BD+DVD CE of Stranger Things S2, 4 of the 6 discs inside were loose from the rubber thingys they have them pushed onto. God, I hate those things. At least the discs weren't scratched/scuffed.

Well, now S2 (and S1 as well) are down to $5 each ($10 for the UHD versions) at Target.

Sorry, I should have explained better. You have to click on the Target Cartwheel coupon to get an additional 50% off the sets. In order to use the Cartwheel discount, you have to pick the order up in-store. Deal isn't valid for shipped sets.

Picked up Season 1 and 2 UHD for $10/ea. Nice deal. I was lucky a store that previously didn't have them instock for pickup updated. Hopefully future seasons go this low.

Did the $5 deal for Season 2 this week, and got Season 1 for $10 on Black Friday, they both look awesome!

I've been waiting for the eventual complete series set to come out because I hate the packaging. But for $5 a season, I couldn't pass up. I'll throw the packaging away if it really bothers me.

I did the same thing, except the store said they were out of stock on S2. The awesome thing is they let you change it to free shipping and keep the cartwheel applied, so it came to under $10 with RedCard.

The packaging is part of the selling point for these, but I donít care for the way they house the discs. The cardboard flaps with the foam pieces donít hold the discs very well, and they fall out of place way too easily. I wish there was just a normal Blu-ray case within the VHS packages or at least that the sleeves were plastic with more traditional disc holders.
