    Over in software last week was a thread about a markdown on some of the R & H musical titles:

    Okay, Mike, I've checked into this:
    First off, you forgot to include The King and I. [​IMG]
    Fox's 1-disc DVDs in the Rodgers and Hammerstein's collection have been marked down to an SRP of $19.98, effective as of August 13th. This information was not available through my usual sources for the Weekly Roundup markdown lists, which is why I neglected to include it there. :p)
    Best Buy apparently has chosen to reflect the new pricing with a $19.99 street price in their stores (and on their website, natch). In other words, they think it's priced plenty low enough, and need to make up for some of their loss leaders. [​IMG]
    Circuit City is doing a bit better at $15.99 per title. Equitable, if you want it pronto and want to go the B&M route instead of ordering online. This assumes its in-stock, of course. [​IMG]
    OTOH, Amazon has them for $16.99-17.98 each title.
    I bet if you keep an eye on your local Target (the bigger ones, anyway), you can find these for a decent price sooner or later. I have a funny feeling that these are the types of things that end up at Target at about $14.44-ish range.
    Of course, you can get all five of those PLUS the 2-disc version of The Sound of Music all in a Rodgers and Hammerstein Box Set, that now sells for roughly $80-90 in most places. I've seen those in Costco all along for around that price, so after these markdowns it should be downright cheap!! [​IMG]

    Dave: I've said it before...and I'll say it again...

    You da man! You are truly "the answer man" in Coupons & Bargains.

    Thanks a ton! Off to Circuit City I go! I'm finally going to replace my widescreen VHS of Oklahoma!

    Oh what a beautiful mornin'! Oh what a beautiful day!

    Well, went to my local Circuit City today. They had nothing except the Sound of Music (which I already have, along with the King and I). [​IMG]
    I am looking for Oklahoma, South Pacific, and maybe State Fair.
    If anyone sees these below the new $19.99 MSRP, I'd be grateful to hear about it.
    I DID, however, find a difficult title "The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg" for just $15.99 at Circuit City. [​IMG]
