    I apologize in advance, Steve, but I don't think you researched this enough. You see:

    $11.95 Volcano
    $15.95 Tora! Tora! Tora! - SE
    ----------
    $27.90 (you put $26.90, so I'll assume you typo'ed)


    Or, instead I can go to Best Buy, get these (they're always in stock - at least at the two Memphis locations) for $9.99 and $14.99, respectively, and that comes to $24.98 plus tax and I have them today.

    How much is tax? Well, in Memphis the sales tax is a HUGE 9.25%, because there is no state income taxes. Your local sales tax will be far less, I'm fairly certain.

    But with tax, for me, that trip to Best Buy comes to $27.29. That's 61ยข cheaper than waiting "up to two weeks" for these Fox "deals" to be delivered via their free USPS method.


    Also, if you don't have a Best Buy near you, check Target and Wal-Mart. They often (but not always) have these titles, and others of those listed at the Fox site, for a bit cheaper. Price points like $9.88 and $14.44, as an example.

    Even that being the case, there's always Best Buy.com...which the other week had a deal to get 20% off all Fox titles. So these would have been even cheaper, and with free delivery from BB.COM!


    I'm sorry to post like this, but I wanted everyone else to be aware of the facts before they took the plunge. In fact, some of the items on those links may be better than in-store prices. But do your research first!!!

    Cheers,

    David, I have to agree with you. Most of those titles can be had alot cheaper. I bought true lies at k-mart for 9.99
