I picked up the Avengers 3D at Target this morning (with bonus disc) and it rang up for $19.99. I don't know if it's a glitch or the regular sale price. I'd say YMMV for now. I got the price at the Rockaway, NJ store.

Yeah it has been well known here for days, Target acknowledged they made a mistake by pricing the other bluray version at $19.99 so they priced the 3D one at $19.99.

I'm new to this. Does that mean nationally the 3D will be 20 bucks? That seems like the obvious best deal for 3D. Am I wrong?

Target's circular is mistakenly advertising the regular 2D Bluray + DVD set as having a digital copy included as well when it does not for $19.99 so they dropped the price of the 3D Bluray which does include the digital copy to $19.99. Should be all stores.

It's Target only IIRC (but all Targets), and only until Sunday. Their advertised price is 24.99 so if you tried to pricematch using the print ad somewhere else that pricematches you'd get it for 24.99.

Got one before work this mornIng as well. $20.50 with red card. I wouldn't wait on this as my store only had 10 copies, and 7 of them were gone at store open. They did have about 50 of the non-3d versions.

Best Buy would likely match this though, right? I found one that does say online price but if they had to call it sounds like its more a question of finding Targets with the 3D in stock rather than a store being confused about $20 price point.

You might get denied due to it being a target exclusive (bonus feature) so people are picking it up just in case.

If your store is out of this. you should be able to get a raincheck. The signs don't say anything about not able to get one.

I can confirm that this was the price at my Target.

Got there right before the store opened, there were like four of us ready to go; one guy grabbed like 6 copies. Didn't want to buy them all, apparently he just wanted to find the one that was in the best shape.

Because, apparently, a Blu-Ray is an investment now.

The sign at my store (Cincinnati, Beechmont location) did state no rainchecks but the girl at the customer service counter tried for me anyway and I was able to get one. They had a ton of the dvd and blu/dvd but said they only got a few of the 3d/blu/dvd/dc copies in.

Will Best Buy price match a raincheck? Might try that later tonight.

Does anyone have a dcpi checker that works? I used to use this:

However, it doesn't seem to work anymore. The dcpi for the 3d avengers is 246-35-0002.

Thanks op. Picked one up from the South Philly target. They still had plenty left. Also got the pre-order case from BB, so in the end I only saved a few bucks, but that's better than nothing.

There were plenty in Atlanta, Ga. Midtown store. Anyone seen a review on the bonus disc? It actually looks great considering its an actual blu and a substantial amount of footage.

The bonus disc was actually rumored to be the same bonus disc found in the Avengers Assembled 10 disc briefcase that was delayed, but I guess we won't truly know that until next year (unless they add more content to it, then we'll never know)

The Walmart I went to would not price match. So I put back the $50 worth of merchandise I was going to get and went to Target down the street. Prices were lower at Target on most of the household stuff I left at Walmart, so double win for me. All because some lazy jackass wouldn't price match for $5 less.

The only thing that will be ymmv is the raincheck. The ad clearly states "limited quantities, no rain checks." My target rep claimed there were supposed to be 9 copies but she could only account for the 7 preorders. She was also looking around the display as if they would be there when neither 3d nor blu ever made it to the sales floor as they have them tucked away behind the register. I'm sure she slipped on telling me there should be 2 copies available. If I worked there, I'd likely ask for one to be held for me.

Will try the Walmart price match.

Edit: nvm, lol what's the point?

I saw the out of stock for online and panicked so I drove to the nearest store and picked one up incase BB wouldn't PM my pre-order.

There was still a good 20 or spread out around the stores so if they call in to check stock I should be good.
Even if BB PMed I think I'll still keep it because of the bonus disc.

Had to go to 2 Targets this morning. The first had 2-3 people already waiting at about 8:00 and a clerk going to the back to bring them out. I didn't want to just sit there and wait, so I browsed the nearby aisles a bit. I didn't count on them only having 10 copies of the 3D sku, so I sauntered back a few minutes later just to see the last 3D copy get sold.

The other target 5 miles closer to work had probably 7 copies just sitting there.

Both stores were $19.99.

Saw this this morning and picked it up at a Target at 8 this morning. There was none in the main movie area and just a sign stating the ad adjustment. They where in the front by the cash registers. Went to Best Buy and they said they would price match than they said they would not since it was a Target Exclusive. I than pulled this link up on my phone for the standard 3D and got the Price Match after I told them I could just go across the street and get it for $19.99.

Yeah the one of the three Targets near me that I went to this morning was on their last box of the 3D blu rays. I got the fourth from last copy. They didn't even bother putting them on the shelves, just kept them in the shipping boxes behind the electronics counter. The clerk said they aren't selling any of the standard blu ray editions.

There were four guys waiting by the counter when I got there, but they weren't there for the Avengers. Apparently Deadmaus' new CD dropped today. :)
