Damn, I can't decide whether to go with the House Bolton or House Martell slipcovers.  I don't have Martell yet.  S1 Stark, S2 Lannister, S3 Targaryen, and S4 Tyrell.  I usually try to buy the cover of the house that is dominating their claim to power that season.

I'll be doing Bolton for the same reason you mentioned

Target beats BB but doesn't have the houses as far as I know.  $10 bonus for pre-order and same price.

Bolton is now being advertised as an online exclusive in the weekly ad.

I went with one of each, pre-orders for both Bolton and Martell on the website.  I will probably cancel Martell.

Looks like the Sigil versions will be $37.99 at launch.  Kind of disappointing they didn't drop down to $34.99 or under like I had hoped.

Online is still showing as orderable for in-store pickup at the moment.

Better order these now if you want them.  The exclusive cover arts are always sold out online before release date.

Where do you think I got them from? Amazon saves that data for convenience.

I know I'm quoting an old post but maybe they thought you kept the slips that they seem to randomly send out.

 

Ordered, Bolton!!!

Man I want that Bolton cover but the target deal seems way better. No cover but $10 target gift card. Decisions.

If you dont have the bestbuy covers from the other seasons then no reason to start now, go Target.  Otherwise get Bolton obviously :p

After selling my 1st season Stark cover edition for $100, I stopped with the covers.

I prefer the extra content in the Target exclusive editions.

Was in Walmart yesterday and saw that they had already put out the season 5 DVD set.  Thought it was funny.  Went ahead with the Target preorder with the giftcard.

Ditto, looks like Tuesday for me as well.

 

It'll hold out until the S5 steelbook shows up, though who knows when that'll be.  S3 and S4 steelbooks haven't been given release dates yet, so just hang on and wait it out.

Went the Target route, even though the price with gift card is $39.99, while the price in-store (with no mention of GC) on release day is $34.99. Unless it's a shitty GC that expires quickly, I'll use it eventually, making it same as cash, and it brings things roughly in line with the BB price for the first three seasons, before the hikes beginning with Season 4. Of course, if they have a pre-order guarantee, like Amazon and most every other retailer, it would make things golden.

Walked into my BB and saw each season for $30, is this for real? I'm guessing this is a sweet time to buy GoT as they're all normally $60? I saw two versions of the Season 3 set one for $60 and one for $30 but I see no recognizable difference...

Apparently, the first four seasons, regular (no Sigil or Location) covers, and that do not include DVD copies, are $29.99.

Wait a while after the sigil versions disappear from in-store or go back up to the $50-$60 prices a number of months after release and you'll likely be able to sell your sigil set for what you paid for it, if not more.

 

I sold my S1 and S2 sets a while back before picking up the steelbook versions and made a reasonable profit even with them being used.
