After reading about the deal at Target, I knew that was where I'd be picking up S3 and BoBW. $65 for both, can't beat it.
I wasn't going to go first-thing. After reading a comment here about their limited stock, and memories of past problems trying to find TNG blurays on release day (even at Best Buy), I decided to hit the store at opening.
Boy, was I glad I did. Got there minutes after the 8 a.m. opening, and there was only one copy of each.
... no, there wasn't a crush of Trekkies that were there before me. The store's entire inventory consisted of ONE copy of each.
Major release, first day, advertised, promotion... and the store gets ONE copy of each?!!?! You gotta be freakin' kidding me.
And on top of that, both had those ridiculous spider cable security things on them. BoBW held up better, but the S3 has some nice dings on both sides. Ugh.
I know the store only had one copy of each because when I asked to get an undamaged copy, two employees scanned them and told me that was all they had.
My local Target also only had one copy of each. I got up extra early this morning and was lucky to get it there. I had a feeling there was only going to be a few, but this was ridiculous. When I got there the worker had both in her hands and told me she was just about to put them out. She said I was the winner.
