    I broke down and picked up the 3D version of Iron Man 3 tonight at BB with the Disney $3 coupon. After the week I've had, I fully expected a fight with the cashier. I even told my BF as we walked in,"If they put up a fight, expect me to raise holy hell." I showed him the package that had nothing about Disney on it, save the "distributed by" fine print on the back.

    Lo and behold, we get to the register and I get a new cashier. An experienced guy comes over and asks if the newbie needs help with a coupon. He says yes and the first thing this veteran says is you have to make sure the coupon is good on the product being sold. He glanced at Iron Man 3 and the Disney coupon...and then said "yup, it applies" without thinking about it. Clearly he had seen at least one of these before.

    I also picked up Iron Man: Rise of the Techmovore for $9.99 at BB.

    Next week's project: making sure someone takes the coupon for The Little Mermaid.

    And the "new cashier" learns a valuable lesson. Don't %#$@ with Jason_V when he comes to your register with a coupon. :D

    The "experienced guy" mentored the young apprentice much like Yoda mentored the young Luke Skywalker.

    You'd better believe it! I was all ready for a fight and even found the "distributed by" language on the back of the slipcover just in case I needed it.

    Really, Mike, I was all ready to come here and write "BB incompetence strikes again!" I had an entire angry post written in my head! Kinda sad, don't ya think??

    It IS kinda sad...but I actually had a flashback while I was reading your post to those salad days when I was trying to desperately to get on Best Buy's list for "preferred customer" coupons!

    The running gag was that they had my picture hanging in their break room to be sure I didn't get coupons, get to use coupons, etc. :D

    Dang it! I knew I forgot something! Maybe I'll go back and try this weekend to get the price match...

    Little Mermaid coupon is on the Scott Tissue site. It's $5, which should make our big two brick and mortar retailers the cheapest places to get pretty much any version. If I did my math and price intelligence correctly, the 3D version should work out to be $27.99; Amazon, with their $5 coupon, clocks in at $29.96 right now.

    Thanks Cameron. I actually had it written in my New Release calendar correctly, but I confused the $5 Amazon coupon with the $7 Scott Tissue one.

    I went to walmart and got the got the BD+DVD+DC for $19.99, but couldn't use the coupon. The cashier couldn't get it to scan. Then we went to customer service and they couldn't get it to scan. They told me to wait for a manager to overide it. We waited for a while and no manager came so we left. After so many stories of no problem with the coupon I figured it would be a piece of cake, but not so at Wally World.

    Thanks for the tip on the Walmart price for Iron Man 3. I was able to get the IM3, 3D version for 24.99 - 3.00 coupon from Disney Movie Rewards. Pretty good bargain!
