probably in a few months when they decide they want more money just like the first season


Is that what happened last time? The CE came out a few months later. Luckily frys and target are close, so I will price match. If they did something with a dragon or something else cool, I would pick it up.

I had a bunch of certificates ($20) due to expire in next month or so at BB, so went with them and in store pick up. I'll ask about price match, but figure they won't go for it.

Price matching will most likely not work on the slipcovers. Not when they have the regular edition for $29.99 which can be price matched.

Can somebody post unpacking pics or thoughts about the BB slipcover editions...I'm on the fence whether to spend the extra $5 if it simply just a slipcover.

Mine PM'd Amazon/Target without question. It may or may not have had to do with the fact that the girl there enjoyed the show (and my 8-bit GoT T-shirt ;)).

Thank you for the pic...cover looks nice but not nice enough to keep my BB order when I can pay $2.xx out of pocket from Amazon after credit.

I am going to end up pulling a 16 hour shirt today so I wont get a chance to pick-up my Best Buy pre-order till tomorrow afternoon. When I pre-ordered it was only for the generic version of the Blu-ray set and the covers were going to be on a first come first serve basis. What are the chances they will still have sets with the exclusive covers tomorrow?

EDIT: Called store and they are going to hold a copy of the Lannister edition for me.

I was able to pm FRYS at target but heads up you should try and keep the cache page from google loaded up on your phone in case
Just google "7424375" and it should be first link and hit cached, and you can show them that.

Also there were only 2 copies at my Target with the Bonus Disc on the shelf that I could see, so may me limited as always YMMV.

Wow, was the first season bb exclusive like that? That's gorgeous. I thought it was just that thin piece of cardboard over the set.

FYI I just came back from Costco since I needed to restock my fridge and see their GoT S2 booklet & $.
I saw a bunch of the special ed. of GoT S2 w/ the 72pg booklet. It costs $41.99 (If I'm not mistaken). They also had S1 for the same price $41.99 no extra 'gift'.
The booklet H & W (not depth) dimensions are about the size of the blu-ray case, a bit smaller. The booklet was covered w/ a piece of weak carton to protect it. From outside what I could barely see it looks to me in quality and materials like the booklets you get when you buy a music CD, just bigger.

I still have a backlog of Win 98 games sealed, at least I'm done w/ my floppies! :lol:

That exclusive set does look extremely nice. I also thought it was just a cheap slip cover. Love the saying imprinted on the back.

I play bad games

If anyone isn't going to use their code I'd love them forever.

I don't like Godzilla.

There are just so many un-Godzilla like things it should be easy to see why people didn't like it (also the annoying cast). Zilla being killed by missiles was the biggest thing that bothered me Godzilla is supposed to be far stronger than that. The army shouldn't be able to hurt Godzilla unless they are using something like MechaGodzilla or Moguera.

You have to get the cached page, check the frys thread for a direct link of a screen capture.

Success! Got both Best Buy exclusives for $24.99 each.

Anyone having trouble redeeming the Amazon digital copy? It just gives you a $38.99 credit but it wont let me buy GoT with it, as GoT isn't not purchasable with credit.

Maybe I'm crazy, but after going in to Best Buy and looking, I prefer the generic artwork. Its shiny and nice looking (I'm easy to please I guess). Plus my first season is the standard cover, might as well stick with it.

It wont let me activate mine for Amazon, but I suggest you speak or chat with amazon rep to try and help. This is what he said to me though.

You need to enter in a credit card regardless of the credit being present, and marking that as default from here: http://www.amazon.com/pin. Once you add the card, purchase the season as normal and it will use the promotional code first. If you're still requiring assistance after that, have contact us with your account.

Got my copy at Target along with Girls season 1 >_>. I DUNNO about you guys but the shiny crown cover is bonerlicious over the BBC covers. And heads up my target only had a few of the donut disc versions the rest were normal. Guy said they only got 6 with the bonus disc in O_o. If you really want the bonus disc badly and they are out try getting a raincheck maybe they will get in more later.

I am probably going to settle for the Target exclusive version since I only have the regular season 1 copy. Does Target pricematch Frys?

Please read my posts above ^^ (but it is YMMV on manager you get, they will try and search on frys website but obviously that is down , so make sure you haved the cached page on your phone), Also Target Copy seems to be limited to 2-6 copies per store at least that is what people are saying.

Was anyone else not impressed with the covers? I found them to be cheap looking, almost blurry. I ended up getting the regular cover that is shiny and raised up. Seemed like a way to just gouge another $5 out of you.

Yes it was. They just replace the standard slipcover with the BB exclusive ones. Everything underneath it is the same.

These ones do look less sharp to me as well. Not sure what it up as they are the same matted paper like the first one. Also the word I unlined is called embossed. And not really a gouge if you PM Fry's $24.99 or Target's $29.99.

I PM'd Frys and got both for $24.99. Ended up paying $10 after using a $35 RZ Cert.

I ended up just going with the exclusive target edition. I like the normal cover and I like this series enough so I'll prolly watch the bonus disc after I finish the season.
