    Today, I saw that Costco was giving away flyers for DVD gift ideas and each week towards Christmas has its own set of DVD deals. You must get the flyer and use the coupons to receive the savings. There is no limit as to how many DVDs you can buy (stock on hand, of course) per coupon use. I'll try to update the normal everyday price for the titles when I get a chance:

    The return of the Alien Quadrilogy 20.00 discount!

    Alien Quadrilogy regularly priced at $64.99 gets a $20.00 discount at the register for a $44.99 final price! This is $2.00 more than the deal last year.

    The Star Wars Trilogy regularly priced at $43.99 gets a $9.00 discount at the register for a $34.99 final price!

    Sorry, I was on the road when I realized I didn't catch when it expired.

    Thanks Patrick.



    Any idea what the final price might be? I'm guessing around the $200 mark.

    Costco charges $80.99 for the individual season sets, so I'd expect the full set to be under $243 before coupon. I notice that the website lists the individual seasons at $84.99 though.

    Costco in Delaware did NOT require a coupon, they processed these as Instant Rebates.

    Looks like Costco decided to just enter the instant discount in their checkout register databases.

    Just to add to the "do I need a coupon" requirement, and notwithstanding that they are (now) getting rung up as instant rebates...just mentioning that you know there is a coupon for it is usually good enough for the cashier, especially if he/she has a bunch of used ones lying around. I mean, it's not as if these coupons are available only to a select number of Costco members...[​IMG]

    Are those "Signature Collection" boxed sets all $30 normally now? I don't remember the Marx Brothers or Scorsese sets being that cheap. (But I'm happy to be mistaken! [​IMG] )

    According to my list, those signature sets are normally around $30. I took my flyer and wrote down the normal prices last week and then updated the first post.

    Aaron,
    I think you live fairly close to me, so maybe this info will help. At my local Costco (East Boca on Congress near I-95) the signature sets vary in price. The Marx Brothers, Scorsese, Horror, Noir, and Tarzan collections are all about $10-$15 more than the actor/actress sets. Still, some great buys. I'm thinking of picking up the Cary Grant set, for what comes out to about $4 a movie. Can anyone speak to the quality of this set, either the discs or the movies?

    Marc, I will be hitting that very Costco on my way home from work in a few hours. [​IMG] (I work at the T-Rex/ Blue Lake office park.) I unfortunately *just* bought the Noir set there a month or so ago. [​IMG]

    I just wish they sold gasoline, like they do in Lantana.

    Costco will usually give you a price adjustment for an item that has gone down in price. If they don't, then rebuy the Noir set and return it with your old receipt.[​IMG]

    Hm, maybe I'll bring my old receipt to the store and see what they'll do. I figured that it's been too long since I bought it (over 30 days, I think).

    Costco has a very liberal return policy. If you have a receipt, it doesn't matter if it's been 6 months.

    Yeah, they treated me right when I discovered my Angel S2 DVD set had duplicate discs. Fortunately I had a receipt and I was given a refund. As it turned out, they didn't have any in stock at the time, but S3 was being released in a few weeks. When it came time to buy both, they were running a 10.00 discount with the purchase of S3 with another Angel or Buffy title. So basically I got a refund AND $10 off!

    Also, if you give Costco items as gifts to non-Costco members that are in need of being returned (without possession of the receipt), they can still get a gift card for the amount of the item, and a 1-day shopping pass at Costco. I saw this develop in front of my eyes at the service desk. I guess it's also a good way to let non-members get a glimpse of how a Costco membership could be a good idea.
