    Yes, it's confirmed that you can get the 1982 version of ET on the cheaper 2-disc version release.
    And that release will be available somewhere (forum rules prohibit me from saying) for $14.99 on the street date (10/22). It's a place where a LOT of loss leaders have occurred lately, I can tell you.
    But if you still want the 3-Disc "Ultimate Gift Set" cheap (even if we don't know what the 3rd disc will have that's not on the 2-disc set!), and regret missing the Suncoast/MediaPlay/OnCue/SamGoody mistake several months ago, then click here! K-Mart.com shows it for just $24.99 right now! [​IMG]
    Just letting y'all know!! [​IMG]

    Thanks David.

    Hey, I don't get why the forum rules don't allow you to tell us where we can get certain bargains and such, but not prohibit others. It's not like your giving out info on piracy or bootlegging.

    Thanks David. Your link had some sort of session ID in it, but if you got to K-mart.com and search for E.T. , you'll see the set pop up. My total came to $29 with the tax and shipping via Media Mail.

    There is also a coupon code for K-Mart that gets you 3% off, about $0.75 worth. Makes the deal even better. As if 58% off MSRP wasn't good enough.

    Specifically, forum rules are that I'm not supposed to say where deals are going to be until the same week as the street date. So on the Roundup I post on 10/20, the details will be revealed.
    I might have let it slip in another post; if so it was a rumor at the time and not confirmed. At this time I expect a scan of the ad is on its way to my mailbox! [​IMG]

    Now I need to decide if I should order from K-mart as well as Suncoast to avoid the possibility of a cancellation from one or the other.

    What do you think, David?

    I doubt it's a misprice. Universal probably realized that they have not had many preorders or a lot of the preorders were cancelled due to the news that the two disc set will include the original version of the film. They probably have a boatload of these "Ultimate Collector's Gift Sets" and were worried they wouldn't sell so they dumped them off to Kmart.

    That's just my theory.

    Thanks David. I normally go to my trusty local boys, but they can't compete with this crazy price. [​IMG]

    Thanks David! I'm on-board - as I just pre-ordered this myself.

    I just pre-ordered this from K-Mart myself, cancelling my Amazon order.
    One thing bothers me: K-Mart order status shows this:
    Item #: 875910
    Description: DVD COLOR: One Color
    Just what the hell is this? I plug in the item number in their "search by item number" and it just dumps me onto the main page... [​IMG]

    Just received my K-Mart confirmation e-mail. Looks okay, but gives a new item number: 025192226021. This gives an error, when searching by number: "We are having trouble locating a match for your search"...

    Very weird.

    Oh man, very very tempting. But I'm not a big enough fan of the film I decided (and my pocketbook has been heating up recently w/ all these good discs coming out). I'll just wait for the loss leader 2 disc.

    I do want to wish the rest of you luck in that KMart honors their posted price!

    Paul, I also got that new item number. I still hope that they'll honor it though. If not, no big deal, I'll probably be happy with the 2-disc set then.
    Thanks again David, you are tha man.....[​IMG]

    I too have taken the KMart bait... I screen-capped the search which clearly shows the picture of the gift set, and also the ordering page which shows the gift set, price AND the number of discs as 3. Let's see them try to claim it's wrong.

    The item # matches the UPC DVD Empire shows for the Ult. Gift Set.
