In the cart:
IRONMAN - 20.99
INDIANA JONES - 24.99

Or just buy both online & do a In store pick up & the email notification print out is only for Iron Man.
Then go to Best Buy and pay $20+tax for Iron man.

I guess they will send me another email notification for IJ later when it's released.....?
Either way, I only paid for Iron Man since you pay at pick up.

No, but I got the service a year ago in December, the price might have gone up since then as shipping prices have skyrocketed due to rising fuel costs.

There's no guarantee of that, but it's the norm. Also, WB tends to ship things out early, so you get stuff before the release date. Again, no guarantee of that, but there's a decent chance. I don't think you can go wrong ordering from WB or Amazon on this, but the small details may sway orders.

That's interesting, as most seem to indicate that WHV charges sales tax. I've done numerous orders with WHV for HD-DVD in the past and they never shipped me anything prior to release and they never shipped a single order standard overnight.

UPS Ground or USPS mail and I would usually get the titles the week of release but not prior to street date.

WB only charges tax in certain locations. I have packages shipped to my parents in CT (because NYC gets taxed).

Since they've cleaned up their act, I've had nothing but good experiences with them. I typically get things before or on release date.

WHV only collects sales tax in the following states:

We are required to collect Sales Tax for orders shipped to the following states: AR, CA, CO, FL, GA, IL, IN, KS, MA, ME, MI, MN, MO, NC, NJ, NY, OH, PA, TN, TX and WA. Tax will be collected at the rates in effect at the time of shipping your order. The amount of your sales tax will be calculated and displayed during the checkout process.

I am one of the lucky ones where sales tax does not get collected

Sorry this is after-the-fact... but I finally bit last week because Best Buy had it in-store for $89.99 (yeah, 4 dollars more than Amazon) and I had $30 in RewardZone certificates from earlier in the summer that I'd been saving... so I figured for $60 out-of-pocket I'd go ahead and bite.

Otherwise I've not seen any better than Amazon's $85.95 price this year.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

I pre-ordered "Iron Man" and Monday I saw that "The thing" was available so ordered it as well, too late to add it to my Iron Man title which was "being processed." I paid $11. exrtra for overnight delivery on Iron Mna just because I wanted it right away, amd standard shipping $2. for "The Thing." Both packages were at my door today when I arrived home. Arghh!

Transformers is going for $19.95 at Amazon right now. I'm thinking about it. That's a pretty good price don't you think?

I went ahead and got it. I also ordered Iron Man. Not the best price around ($25.95) but had to get another to qualify for free shipping. Can't wait to get both!!!

I got a $5 off blu ray coupon at the register at target, it is a in store coupon that printed up after my receipt. I didn't purchase any electronics. Just as an FYI I think the coupons are random at best but I am glad cause it is good on any blu ray movie! Any body else get this yet?

Definitely worth it for big buyers but I dont think its $59 a year more like $79
I just joined a few months back
Maybe they raised it since when you joined
Not 100% sure .. my mind is mush right now

Amazon prime is $59 per year and you get 2nd day air shipping on everything that is sold direct from Amazon with no minimum order. You get overnight shipping for $3.99.

While this won't make sense for everyone, I order dozens if not hundreds of items from Amazon every year. Paying $59 for a year's worth of 2nd day air movies, audio CDs, computer games, hardware, etc, is well WELL worth it to me.

Maybe his local Wal-Mart store either didn't carry it or had it at a different price. It could've also just been convenience...if the Best Buy is just easier to get to than the nearest Wal-Mart.

Good thing, cause it looks like they took down the pre-order.
Probably in order to fix the mistake.

They adjusted the price to $29.95 (up from $26.95) by the time I saw the pre-order yesterday.
I had to run an errand and forgot to pre-order yesterday.

I came into work today to try to pre-order, and they took it down.
I've found the product page w/ google, but it's been blocked from being added to the cart.

Hmmm, that's strange. The $18.87 price has set the bar for me, and I now won't buy until I see that price point or lower.

$18.87 ($26.95 and below before 30% coupon) is definitely a sweet spot, but I can settle for $22-ish for The Dark Knight

I just received a package from Family Video, for a DVD version of Journey to the Center of the Earth starring Ricky Schroder. I checked my order history just to make sure I ordered the right thing and it's the Blu-Ray version. So be on the lookout.

Actually in the time since I posted, I called Family Video and they seem well aware of the problem. I mentioned I received the wrong disc and the CS guy already knew the title without me saying anything. He said they'll contact everyone about it tomorrow. We'll see...

Family Video's CS is pretty good. I bought a DVD a few months ago from them and when I received it, the case was cracked though the disk was fine. I sent them an email just to let them know what happened and they apologized and sent me out a replacement right away without me even asking for one.
