    Well the fault is that the hourly employees couldn't care less about whether or not it takes up space in the storeroom and are not going to go out of their way to deviate from 'the books'.

    I went to Wal Mart on a Friday to pick up a new PS4 game that released on a Friday and it was nowhere to be found. According to their own website there were plenty of copies in stock. I went up to three employees in the electronics department who were just standing around shooting the shit, and asked about it. They told me that games were released on Tuesdays and that's when they put them out on the shelves. I showed them their website that clearly showed it was in stock, and they said to come back on Tuesday. It was obviously sitting in a box in the backroom and they were just too lazy to go look for it.

    I walked literally across the street to Best Buy and bought a copy there where it was sitting out on the shelf.

    $19.97 is really good for the Blu-ray everywhere else I've seen is $22.99.

    It's not quite good enough for me to return my standing pre-order from Target that has already shipped....but, good.

    I've never heard of this store before, though. We must have them here.

    They're a small regional chain in Maine and New Hampshire.

    Yeah, that explains it I'm not in that part of the country. Wish I could get Target to price match them, but given the circumstances they probably won't.

    Oh well. I bought it anyway since I know I'll use it.

    Well I can't say about the Target version, but I can confirm that the Wal Mart version only includes a single blu-ray and nothing else, so I wouldn't be surprised if the Target version was the same thing.

    Ended up getting Black Panther UHD at Best Buy and price matching Walmart.com to get the $24.99 price. My local Walmart had about 8 bazillion copies of the Blu-Ray and and about 4 bazillion copies of the DVD, but only one (empty) slot for the 4K release.

    Barnes & Noble's website has "Rick & Morty" Season 3 on Blu-Ray for $20.99, and the 10 percent off code (YESWAY) brought it down to $18.89 so I pulled the trigger.

    You got the Wal-Mart exclusive without a digital code.

    My shipment from Target, including the standard Blu-ray edition of Black Panther, just arrived.

    I can confirm it includes the Blu-ray disc and a digital copy code. There's also a flyer for the Disney Movie Club which I put straight into the recycle bin.

    Contrary to the information in the ad, there is no DVD. I know this now for sure because I have it in front of me, so whoever put the ad together was either assuming incorrectly or misinformed about a DVD's inclusion.
