    Media Play is running a special this week with $10 off some dvd box sets. One of them is the new SOUTH PARK set. Regular sale price, $19.99. With the $10.00 off, that's $9.99!
    Media Play Ad
    The fine print says, "Sale prices shown are before $10 deduction."
    I'm hosting the images on a free site, so don't expect them to be up for long. Also, I have a high-res copy that I obtained from another website, so email me if you want that sent. It's about 2mb.
    I can't take credit for finding this. It was posted on another board, but I didn't see anything about it here.
    Enjoy!

    Jeff, most of the time, I'd say you're not missing much. They tend to be overpriced on most things. This time, they came through! That is, if they stick to their ad.

    Brian, are you going out to the Florence Media Play? That's where I was heading. My plan was to get to Toys R Us when they open for AOTC. Then, head to Media Play for South Park. After that, hop over to Best Buy for Rings. That's a lot of running around, but at least the stores are fairly close. Especially Best Buy and Media Play. You could attempt to price match all of them at one store, but I don't have the ads or a printer so I'll just drive to each store I guess. I'm just hoping I can get a copy of South Park for $9.99.

    Good luck!

    Ashley,
    I will visit my parents this Thursday night. I will pick up my copy. If you'd like I can get one for you. Don't know how much it will cost to ship to Canada though.

    Gregory,

    I'm doing the tour of stores as well. I already have LOTR (it's spectacular, btw) so I'm only hitting TRU and Media Play. I work at Xavier, so there's a MP just down the road from me. I can't decide whether to drive to Florence or out to Eastgate. Florence is a little closer, but it's always so crowded! I thought maybe I'd have a better chance of finding SW at the store out in Eastgate. Let me know how you make out!

    The closest Media Play is almost 2 hrs away!! Uggghhhh!!!
    Is there anyway I could convince someone here to pick me up a copy? I'll PayPal the funds for the disc.
    Please email me at [email protected] if possible.
    Thanks,
    Stuart

    I am only going to confirm that it's true, Media Play is selling the Season 1 boxset for South Park for the low low price of $9.99. The clerk couldn't believe it with it rang up for that price when I brought it to the register for check out.

    Yes! I just returned from my shopping trip. Here's what I got:

    Attack of the Clones - $9.99 @ Toys R Us
    Fellowship of the Ring (4 disc) - $24.99 @ Best Buy
    South Park Season 1 - $9.99 @ Media Play

    Wow! What a day! I spent a lot less money than I thought I would. The price of the
    South Park set made my day. And yes, it rang up $9.99 at the register.

    I'm right there with you Gregory. Worth the legwork! The folks at MP seemed shocked and had to check and double-check the flyer, but it rang up just fine. Truly a great day in DVD!

    I was there as the MP on Cobb Pkwy opened, and they had a good amount of SP sets (probably 20+). The clerk went to go get 2 for herself after seeing the price!

    Best Buy (Eastgate location) happily matched the $9.99 South Park, I even bought 2 copies.

    They refused the $9.99 AotC, as TRU had just run out.

    Any chance someone with a media play close by could help me get one of these SouthPark Season 1 sets cheap? Please? I could return the favor with a $9.99 ATOC cd.

    Well, would anyone out there be willing to help me out? This is $30 on their website, and the closest store is 3 hours away for me. If anyone is interested please drop me an email or reply here.

    Thanks,
    Drew

    I went to my local MediaPlay to find out they only got a few copies in yesterday and all of them were spoken for by pre-orders. I then put my name in for a raincheck which secured the price at $9.99 but the clerk indicated I probably wouldn't see it until after Christmas. Then I went to Best Buy to get my copy of LOTR(4disc) and brought the MediaPlay circular with me from the store. They had no problem price matching the $9.99 price and didn't even call. They told me they've gotten a lot of these price matches today.

    My local BB would only go for 19.99 since the ad phrased it as a $10 instant rebate. The clerk said she couldn't honor instant rebate matches. *sniff*

    For anyone still waiting ... check MediaPlay's website.
    Once it's in your cart, it's $9.99, and no S/H!
    Anyone still interested? [​IMG]
