    The cheapest price at DVDpricesearch is $44. This probably won't last long.

    Well, I just tried ordering a couple of the Ultimate ET DVDs.
    After entering all of the necessary info and submitting the order, I got a message stating that the "Mall/Store is experiencing problems. Please try again later."

    Perhaps I got the order in too late? I'll try again later.

    Reading the info on the discs did not say whether it is, in fact, the set containing the original movie and the 2002 version. I assume it is the correct set because it states that it is the "three disc set."

    Thanks for the heads-up on this deal, Christopher.

    I called 1-800-371-4425 to confirm that this is in fact the 3 disc version with the original cut of the film. The representative I talked with didn't have much information, but he did say that he was getting alot of calls about the E.T. DVD. My total with shipping is $28.48. As always, they said I can cancel my order any time before they ship. Let's hope this is the real deal.

    Thanks!

    I called up Customer service and told them of my difficulty getting my order completed.

    The lady I spoke to directed me to oncue.com as an alternate website. The prices are exactly the same as suncoast.com and the website actually works!!

    I ordered two sets and it cost me a total of $54.97 (no sales tax and only $3.99 for shipping!).

    At this price, it kind of takes the sting out of buying the original movie.

    Thanks again, Chris.

    This was such a good deal that I had to do a double take. Thanks Chris for verifying that it indeed had the original version. I hope this all works out.

    A big thanks to Christopher H for posting this deal! Hopefully they will honor this price, because October gives them a lot of time to either fix their mistake or change their minds. Surely there is a disclaimer somewhere on the site that says "we reserve the right to cancel any order before it ships or something like that." I will keep my fingers crossed until it ships. [​IMG] Thanks again. You made my day.

    I already posted about this terrific deal in the Software Section's E.T. thread, but it bears repeating here:
    -------------------------
    This bargain is also being discussed in a bit more depth here at DVDTalk, for those of you who are like me:
    [​IMG]
    But I'm already there. I placed the order at Suncoast.com (and verified that it is exactly the same deal/same price at Mediaplay.com and Samgoody.com).
    It does NOT specify in the features that this item has script, senitype, and soundtrack CD. However, if you look up "E.T.", it very clearly states this:

    I made my order with Sam Goody. I ordered "Jin-Roh" 3-disc special edition from Sam Goody for $25 a couple of months ago. The list price for this set is $60 and they did indeed delivered the special edition for $25, so I am optimistic that they will honor this price. Mucho thanks to Christopher_H for bringing this to my attention.

    I went ahead and ordered the Ultimate Gift Set. This is obviously an error for the two-disc set, but hopefully they will grant it. If not, I cancel!

    FYI, Sam Goody is having a 3 day-10% off everything sale starting at midnight Central Time. So, in about a half an hour, you'll be able to save an additional $2.54.[​IMG]

    Hmmmm....Extra 10% off not working. It show's 10% off, but then doesn't take anything off the price. Hope they get this cleared up.

    Well ...

    I just got in on this!

    As everybody here has stated, this is probably a monumental typo, but I had to give it a shot!!

    BTW, I'm a REPLAY card member as well, so this purchase will also earn me credit toward future DVD purchases!!!

    WOW!! If Suncoast honors this then Christmas has come early for all of us!!

    Very sweet. Sounds like enough people have ordered that it's a bit too late for them to cancel all of the orders. We'll see what happens.

    I gave it a shot. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out. I'll be very happy to have the original ET at what I consider a reasonable price.
