Anyone know the 3D price at Best Buy? Did we get rid of the weekly ad threads?

Gollum gets on a sweet cover, and he's in the film like 45 minutes, at best. However, not a single cover is dedicated to Thorin Oakenshield. :-(

Gollum's arguably the best part of the movie, and one of the most iconic characters from the Hobbit/ LOTR universe. There's 2 more movies for Thorin to grace a cover on, this is the only opportunity for Gollum to do so.

Damn, I could care less about the exclusives - I'd just like to get it cheap (like sub-$15 on blu-ray). Looks like that isn't happening though, even if I get the RZ 500 point offer (which has yet to post for me even though I used their stupid Facebook app to vote in a poll). Well, it would be $14.99 if I count the 500 points ($10 in RZ certs) as applying to the movie. I'd be more willing to bite if the movie was $16-$20 - not sure at $25 though.

Gollum could very well be in the third 'Hobbit' film, seeing as the majority of that film (if not the entirety of it) will take place between 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord of the Rings'... there's already a fan film about Gandalf and Aragorn trying to find him before Sauron does (before 'Fellowship'), but maybe Jackson and Co. will do something similar.

Gollum is also awesome, so there's THAT!

I'll wait for the extended edition as well. I'm tired of double dipping on stuff.

The 500 RZ point offer on my "Active Offers" page at myrewardzone.com (for using the Facebook app and voting in a poll). I think I said pretty much that already ;).

Thanks - I have a $25 Walmart gift card from Coke Rewards. I might have to use it on this - only problem is it means going to Walmart and it is pretty far away. But maybe I can order it online for delivery to a Fedex store (free shipping that way).

You weren't too clear about what you were waiting to post. People ususally wait for points to post with RZ, not an offer. I'm not sure why it matters whether it's on your offers page though, It doesn't show up there for anyone as far as I know. As this is an offer for people that use the fb app, it's advertised on their facebook page.

I don't understand why the BB Exclusive is $3 more than the vanilla BD.

I am not so sure Target's featurette is an exclusive at all.

The way it's worded, it sounds like the featurette will be on Best Buy's too.


The sneak peak for The Desolation of Smaug is gonna be this

Wish I hadn't missed that WBShop deal. I can't decide where to get this. Maybe I'll hold out for the European Steelbook, I dunno.

Going to wait until the extended triolgy is out to pick up these titles. I'll just grab a redbox copy if I want to watch any of the films until it comes out.

Feel like a caveman but who has the best DVD price? Want to pick this up for my mom. I see Target has $14.99 online but $16.99 on the ad...

Well the Wal-Mart digibook is ringing hp at $29.96. That was a hard pill to swallow..website shows $26.96, can't remember what the print ad says, but $30 is too damn high! Will def be going back later for a price adjustment.

edit: damn, print ad shows $22.96..boy did I get ripped! Guess that is the price you pay for showing up at 6:15am, not knowing the facts and only having a self checkout lane open. The $23 is a much nicer price..

Since I had Amazon Instant-Video credit and I used on the Hobbit this weekend, looks like I'm going to wait for the extended cut later this year for an actual physical copy of the film. Hopefully Thorin makes it on the cover there :-P

Yeah, beware Walmart and the price ringing up on the digibook. Just went into mine here on the West Coast and it rang up $29.96 as well. However the lady grabbed one of the Sunday ads and after I showed her the correct price she adjusted it to $22.96 and the register then took another $3.00 off for a price adjustment? So walked out of there with it after tax for $21 and change.

Anyone familiar with this Walmart policy of taking additional money off for a price adjustment?

Pricematch? That's the advertised price for the exclusive digibook this week.

Weird. At Target we had the same issue where the non-3D Bluray was still at full price. Thankfully I caught it before we opened.

That's strange. If it is cheaper on the website, take it to guest services and they can match it (as silly as it sounds).

So did this not happen? I am seeing it as $24.96 on the web site. Is the $18.96 pricing only in store? On the other hand, the Digibook version is showing as $26.96 online (which is half way in between the store price and the ad price). It was my plan to order the $18.96 one for delivery to a FedEx store since I don't live near a Walmart.

Apparently Costco has it for $18.99 and I need to go there anyway tonight or tomorrow. Maybe I'll just do that. Though I was hoping to use a $25 Walmart gift card I otherwise have no use for.

The weekly ad shows it as $18.96 - maybe the price is only in-store, but that would be weird. I don't see anything in the ad saying it's an in-store only price. Maybe the prices on that are messed up as well? Sounds like the price on the Digibook was also messed up in-store today. If you happen to have a Nebraska Furniture Mart near you, they actually have the cheapest price for the BR/DVD/UV version at $17.79.
