    Unfortunately, there isn't much. Hopefully someone can find someone I wasn't able to find.

    Amazon is selling it for $83, minus 10% from Share the Love (there was also a $10 of $75 coupon online, but I believed that expired yesterday). That comes down to a still expensive $75. Costco apparently it selling them for $70, but my local Costco and their webpage had none in stock (not surprising, considering BoB has been out for well over a year now).

    A month ago, you could've gotten it a DDD for under $70, but those coupons are long gone. I went the Amazon route, as I can gome gift certificates from them anyway.

    I've seen these in Walmart for under $70. Of course Walmart pricing is not consistent from market to market. Still, it's worth a phone call.

    Well, it sure sucks not to have a Walmart around my area. Oh well [​IMG]

    Nick, where do you live in the US that DOESN'T have a Wal-mart nearby?

    Jeff-

    Have you seen any decent price on BoB in our area? I haven't. And, I've got a friend who's been looking for one.

    Wal-Mart (at least some of them) have it for $64.99.

    I was lucky enough to get it for Christmas, but I still haven't had time to start it yet. That case is amazingly beautiful, though.

    It's a big country. Not even Wal-Mart has achieved saturation everywhere...yet.

    I have to get back to "Band of Brothers" at some point. I watched the first episode last summer and thought it was rather boring. I assume the pace picks up at some point after the first episode.

    Jeff, I live in Seattle. I think there's a Walmart somewhat near me, but it's hardly worth the drive to save 10 bucks. Even then, have never been in a Walmart before.

    I read recently that Wal-Mart is planning 300 more stores this new year...200+ of the Supercenters!

    More than 1/2 of their construction is generally replacement/expansion of existing older stores.

    Of those 300, only about 100-125 may be actual new locations.

    Still not bad, though. And Target needs to get on the ball (and come to Vermont)!

    What about Sam's Clubs? Are they expanding? They seem to be harder to find and Costco is really hard to find depending on where you live.

    David_Jr, among the 300-plus store expansion count I mentioned for Wal-Mart, the breakdown of that number included a couple dozen Sam's Clubs.

    We just got a pretty big Sams club that opened in August 2003. Pretty nice. Best deal for me there has been Looney Tunes gold at $42. Thand and this OT - I was walking around Sams right at close and they gave me a free 3lb. Rotisserie Chicken worth about $4-$5. Pretty suprised, Chicken was very good but it was boiling hot so we ahd to leave. Their plan worked out very well. [​IMG]
