From next weeks BB flyer (courtesy Slick) -- $10 off if you buy both Gladiator and Braveheart Blu Ray (22.99 each).

For those who are interested in both and haven't been prescared by the prescreening threads about the transfer this looks to be by
far the best deal.   Currently Amazon lists the 2 for $49.50 though this is very likely to drop a little, but no way to guess if they will
match BB's $10 off.

David, just so I have this correct, is the $22.99 price you are quoting the post-$10 off total? So after all discounts the prices will be $22.99 each (hence $45.98 for both)? Or is the $22.99 price the pre-$10 off total?

If it's the former, it's a wash for me since Amazon doesn't charge tax in my state, but I'll likely still get it from BB due to instant gratification. If it's the latter, then it's obviously BB hands down because then it will be like $17.99 each!

The way I read the ad is that the discs are 22.99 a piece, but if you buy both then you get an extra $10 discount so net price should be 35.98 + tax.

I think this will work -- page 8

Thanks David, I agree with your interpretation! Now if only my local Best Buy circular also has that offer (I've noticed that sales vary nationwide for Best Buy)...

And if you have these two on DVD you get a $10 rebate for each bringing the cost for each down to $7.99 each before sales tax!

Or if people truly wish to boycott Gladiator, it at least gets the BH disc down to $13 (+tax maybe)  or less if you sell the BH DVD.  

I've heard of many folks perusing he Walmart discount bins and 2nd had stores looking for a $3 copy of the DVD just to use the POP so make sure the disc has the actual POP which is on the fold out Information insert for both BH and Gladiator (I know many used copies particularly from Blockbuster don't have the info sheet).
