    YOu can always call Disney and complain about those tags. Although you'll get the "the retailer requests that". Now.... I don't know if this is true of Costco, because the don't even have sensors for those at the Costcos I shop at...

    Disney would be the best place to start.

    Regarding Costco's price of CSI - yes, it's $57.99 at Costco (at least the Puyallup WA one.)

    Malcolm -- and anyone else who is interested[​IMG] :

    I just got off the phone with a manager at my local BJs (in Albany, NY). He told me they had tons of WFRR and that they were on sale for $17.99 each. Those of us with the $3 off coupon will make out better than the Target price. My BJs and Target are located right next to each other. BJs wins!

    Oh. And I called my local Wal-Mart to check on their price. $17.95. Ouch!

    Good deal! Plus my BJ's is in tax-free NH, so that's another 5% savings as well. [​IMG]

    Colin,

    My Roger Rabbit also had the anti-theft tag directly on the back cover. I purchased mine from Target. A lot of the dvd covers looked scruffy at the bottom so I searched untile I found a good looking one.

    Thanks for all your hard work on the Weekly Roundup Dave.

    Thanks also for your suggestion on the Women's Day magazine coupon. Picked-up the magazine at Target ($1.79) at the same time I picked-up Who Framed Roger Rabbit. The Target cashier even let me borrow her scissors to cut the coupon out.

    Walked out of Target with WFRR DVD, Maid in Manhattan DVD, Women's Day magazine, and a 6 pack of Act II popcorn all for $30.77 + tax.

    Whoo Hoo!
    Thanks again Dave!

    I went out late Monday night/early Tuesday morning to pick up some dog food, and decided to look for the new releases at the same time. I hit one of the 2 local remaining 24-hour Wal-Marts, and didn't see any Roger Rabbits. The guy in front of me was asking about Friday After Next, and the electronics dept associate claimed they didn't get it in. He questioned this, but she insisted that they wouldn't be carrying it. She finally said they should have it, but they weren't going to put any of the new releases out until 5am (this was shortly after 2am). I then asked about WFRR, and she asked "didn't you hear what I just told him?". I decided to just check Meijer, but as I was leaving, I saw that they had Auto Focus for 14.44, so I picked that up.

    Meijer was even worse. They had a big WFRR display, with both DVD & VHS. The cardboard display had a mostly blank area where I assumed they'd be putting their actual price, but in the middle had a listed price of 29.99 for DVD, and either 19.99 or 21.99 for VHS. The price tags on the actual items listed 24.95 and 14.95, respectively. I assumed that they just hadn't put out their sale prices yet, so I asked the electronics associate to do a price check. She said that the 24.95 was the actual price. I then asked if they weren't going to put it on sale the first week, and she pointed to the display to show me that I was getting it for $5 off the suggested price. I then pointed out that Target had it for about $9 less, and she said "Well then, I'd suggest shopping at Target!"

    This morning, we first hit Sam's Club (17.77), then Wal-Mart (17.86, and a refusal to go lower since the Target ad only said "Low Price"), and finally Target for 15.99 (I forgot about Woman's Day).

    Next, we hit Suncoast looking for Porn Star: The Legend of Ron Jeremy. They had one copy, but it was the R-rated version, and 26.99, so we passed. Lastly we hit Borders, where they not only had 5 copies, but it was the unrated version, and 19.99. I went up to pay, but as I kind of expected, the most grandmotherly looking lady in the store was running the register, which embarrassed the heck out of me. Needless to say, I told her I was buying it for my wife who was out in the car, but I don't think she was at all amused. FWIW, PS:TLORJ is a great little film, and one I'd recommend to anyone who is even just slightly interested.

    One the subject of WFRR case wear...

    My copy, from Target, is in fine shape, except on the actual vertical edges of the outer slipcover. There are a number of spots where the silver has rubbed through. I didn't notice this when the disc was wrapped in plastic, but its more evident when the shrinkwrap was removed.

    WFRR was $19.99 at our local Wal-Mart so I headed over to CC which had it for $17.99. They were a little hesitant to apply the cupon at first but after a few calls to their managers they accepted it.

    Keep up the great work David! [​IMG]

    For anyone who's interested...

    I went to BJ's Wholesale Club tonight to pick up my WFRR. Price was, indeed, $17.99. I had the $3 off coupon which is a BJs exclusive. If you are a BJs member and didn't get a coupon mailed to you in a catalog, my store had a huge stack of the coupon catalogs by their customer service desk.

    Also, BJs is carrying CSI: Season One for $59.99 [​IMG] I'd love this. It's my favorite show. But, it will HAVE to wait! [​IMG]

    I know everyone has probably picked up Futurama if they want it, but...

    Regarding Borders, I went in today to buy it (just because the store is a couple of blocks away) and although there was a sticker on the Futurama set that said "35.99," it rang up as $29.99. Even said "Futurama" on the register.

    So, if anyone wants to try their luck because there's a Border nearby, go for it. I didn't mind saving a few bucks.
