Amazon has also dropped its price on the Blu of Silver Linings Playbook to $22.99.


There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

Amazon price matched Target:

 

 

STNG-BOBW $14.99:

STNG-Season 3 $59.99

http://www.amazon.co...d=ATVPDKIKX0DER

 

As mentioned by other members, Target is the best deal when buying both with $10.00 off.

 

 

Amazon has also dropped its price on the Blu of Silver Linings Playbook to $22.99.

 

And both of those updates have now been included in the OP.

I will be getting both release even though I'm not happy with the way both episodes were cut together.  It almost feels slapdash and removes all the tension in the original two parter.  A comparison is on YouTube:

 

Thanks for posting that video Jason; you made a good point about the loss of tension, but I'll be picking this up as well.  No way I'm waiting several months to watch the conclusion of Best of Both Worlds.  After all, resistance is futile.   :)

Super welcome!  The other thing I found at the theater event last Thursday is all the changes between seasons are really noticeable.  These episodes, when viewed continuously, really feel like two separate installments instead of one 90-ish minute movie.  That being said, I am such a completist there's no way I don't grab this disc.  After all, I will be keeping the TNG Sampler Disc, too!

Did awesome at Best Buy with Star Trek TNG season 3 and Best Of Both Worlds.

Got them to price match the Target deal AND use two $5 upgrade and save coupons.

Price for both: $54.98. :)

Good luck with that...I went to the Northgate BB store this morning, traded in two DVDs and an HD-DVD, and got my trade-in receipt and coupon. However, it turned out that they didn't have BoBW, so I went up to the Lynnwood store, which had some left. Got there, grabbed both of 'em, and headed to checkout. Got shot down on the $10 price match (I think the cashier and the manager she called over didn't understand (or care) that it was an additional $10 off the prices in the Target ad). Then, to top it off, they only gave me one of the $5 trade-and-save discounts because the Northgate store had only given me one actual coupon attached to the receipt showing all three trade-ins and, for some reason, the Lynnwood store wanted an actual coupon for each item and told me to take it up with the Northgate store. Oy.

 

I walked out paying more for the two items than I would have if I had just gone to Target in the first place...I plan to go back to the Northgate store tonight or tomorrow and hopefully get them to fix the pricematch and the trade-in coupon (the coupon thing more for general principle...I have a huge stack of old DVDs I could trade in for more, so it's not like those were my one and only trade-ins). The Northgate store has generally been hassle-free for pricematching deals for me, so I'm optimistic right now.

 

Shoulda just left my Amazon pre-orders alone and saved myself the hassle.

 

Anyway, thanks for the Roundup, Mike!

I keep forgetting to pre calculate the expected total, because inevitably Best Buy systems will get it wrong. The price match and the upgrade coupon wound up not playing nice, so I had to go to customer service to make the adjustment.

Dave, I find the Lynnwood store to be pretty crappy most of the time.  With the kinda miserable, terrible, no good, very bad week I've had, it might be better for my blood pressure (and criminal record) to avoid BB.  It doesn't seem worth it right now.

You betcha they do!  And if the last four weeks (and today) are any indication, I'm in for some super excellent time in the near future!  What doesn't kill us...
