    DIRECT LINK (for Dr. Strangelove)

    The price is good for online and in-store orders. I reserved a copy for pickup using the above link, hoping that they would honor the $14.99 price. As it turns out, the lower price is in their system, despite no mention of it anywhere in the store. All copies on the shelf were marked $30.99, but rang up at $14.99.

    YMMV, but I was not able to use the 25% off coupon mentioned in another post. The coupon doesn't apply to "sale" prices, and according to their system, the $14.99 price qualifies.

    Other titles are also on sale for $14.99, including:
    - The Fifth Element: UE
    - Lawrence of Arabia: LE
    - Glory: SE
    - Leon: The Professional: DE
    - Close Encounters of the Third Kind: CE

    Thanks to dx23 at DVD Talk for the heads up.

    Thanks for the heads up. Been wanting to get this, but couldn't see spending the money one it as I already had the previous edition. But at this price, why not.

    I'm in! That's awesome! Thanks for posting, David.

    I wonder how long this will last?

    If Borders is anything like BB with giving you discounts, it'll last until about 20 minutes before you walk in the store, Mike.

    $31.00 tag price for STRANGELOVE SE?!
    I got mine at FRYs the day it came out for $19.99- a NOT on sale price.

    Borders 'sale' prices are often more than many places 'regular' prices

    There's a follow-up post on DVD Talk that says Dr. Strangelove also falls under the 2/$22 promotion Borders is currently running:


    This does require that you buy a second DVD, but I'm sure that's not a problem for most of us here. [​IMG]
