I've noticed a few other threads discussing the "new" high prices at Samgoody.com and Suncoast.com, but I haven't seen anyone mention whether this is a permanent change or not. So, is the pricing at Samgoody.com and such a permanent change? I want to pre-order the new Dragonball Z DVD's -- they seem to be the only online store which carries the recent issues -- but, at $22.99 each, even using a gift card it just seems too high.

I have seen nothing to indicate that it is not permanent change. I'm guessing it has something to do with being bought by Best Buy. Someone posted something here about a rumor that they would be stopping their normal retail operations within the year. If true, that doesn't bode especially well for their on-line stores.

Bestbuy.com has competitive online pricing -- It doesn't make any sense to me that they would choose to price Samgoody.com and such in this manner.

I believe that http://www.Amazon.com is starting to have the preorders ojn the new batch of DBZ DVDs, also it may not be good to preorder too soon for the DBZ DVDs, because I ordered the 2 most recent ones from samgoody.com more than a month before they released, and when the site said they were shipping I called up customer service to find out why my oder hadn't shipped yet and she said it had been cancelled. No email or anything was sent to notify me. Luckily I was able to reorder the discs and use the discount I previously had, but still with the prices they charge now I'd be careful.
