Dave - Reading your weekly round up is the one thing that makes me get through my work day after closing on a Saturday and opening on a Sunday. You are a truly generous man to give up all this time and effort. Thank you for the round-up!
Has anyone heard if they plan to release an El Mariachi/Desperado/OUATIM Boxed set? I think Once upon a Time. . . is released on DVD in January. Or should I just buy these two that are out tomorrow? Thoughts?
The El Mariachi/Desperado boxset is priced at $19.99, a great deal considering each individual film is $14.99. Plus the box art is really cool. I doubt there will be a three film box any time soon, but if there is, $10 a film isn't much of a loss should you consider to double-dip sometime down the road.
Roberto, thank you for the private note in a similar vein. Yes, I agreed with everything you said. :wink:
I do appreciate all the gratitude for doing this; keep in mind that I pretty much do it for me on the titles I want to buy, or think I want to. When I add stuff I won't buy no matter what...well, that's where the generosity comes into play!
Well...time to go WATCH a DVD, instead of just talking about them at the HTF. Later,
What do you think my best bet is for getting Desperado and El Mariachi? Wait for sales when Once Upon a Time in Mexico is released in theaters, or wait for sales (or a 3-pack) when it's released on DVD?
Sorry about being a little confusing. The ad was strictly an ad for duracell and TTT - nothing to do with Target. I am still trying to scan the image, darn this scanner.
I can tell you that it seems to be through gillette, because you mail it to gillette mail in rebate. Again it was just a duracell ad on a one sheet paper in the guts of my newspaper, with an ad/coupon for simply white on the opposite side.
I will get it scanned by tomorrow, if not tonight.
Just got back from midnight release at Veradale, WA (Spokane Valley) Wal-Mart. TTT is $14.84, Stitch!: The Movie is $18.84 (the two titles I bought). They were giving away a little light-up ring with the purcahse of TTT. Not sure how I ended up with 3 of them, since it was one per copy. Oh, well....trinkets to give to friends, I suppose.
For those of you with Best Buy Reward Zone cards, you might wait to make your purchases there until Thursday. Purchases Thursday-Monday of Labor Day weekend get 5000 bonus points on your Reward Zone account (i.e., as if you spent an extra fifty bucks). This per the flyer I received from Best Buy last night in the mail.
Just got back from Best Buy here in Dallas at Walnut Hill. TTT and Stitch didn't ring up with the $5 discount so check your receipts before you leave. They had to go back and credit my account afterwards.
hmmm. Got to pass on the Desperado & El Mariachi dvds. I will wait for the 3 pack which will likley drop in Dec/Jan. I don't expect the movie to last long in the theaters. I have learned my lesson on the double dipping a few to many times now. The fact that the movies have been already dropped twice now is just to much of an indicator.
