Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Well I got the price match at Best Buy but not the extra $10 off for buying both. However, I was able to walk to Best Buy and I would have had to take the subway to and from Target so that's $5 saved. On top of that I wouldn't have gotten the Best Buy exclusive material had I gone to Target so I'd say that extra $5 is well worth it in the end.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Went to the San Mateo, CA Target and they had 2 copies of Season 3 and 1 copy of Best of Both Worlds. It's unreal that they have this promotion but the copies are so limited. I guess maybe that was the catch.

The thing I noticed though was good lord the Tax in California is high. 9.25%? Ended up paying $70.99 and that was cool and all, but I couldn't help but think that states like Nevada and Florida got a really really nice deal.

Looking forward to breaking into both sets sometime, but this is a heavy sports time of year. Hockey and Basketball playoffs and Baseball. Why does this time of year have to be so busy.

Yeah, it was a sad day when Amazon started collecting sales tax. Now for something like this, I drive over to the nearby Fry's or Best Buy to get a new release so I can have it that day.

Sales tax across most of Pennsylvania is 6%. In my county it's 7%.

My total came out to $69.53.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

If you look closely, you'll see that there isn't actually a typo on the BOBW separate release.

There's an asterisk before "Best of Both Worlds Part I". That's an asterisk for the blurb about it being one of the Top 100 episodes on TV Guide. The comment about the upscaled SD footage is a separate thought.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I went to Target (to pick up the ad) and like most other locales, they only had one copy of each. I headed over to Best Buy and they had no issue overriding the price match + $10 off combo. They just manually entered the price. For me, the stores are directly across the street from one another, so if Best Buy hadn't matched I would have just gotten them at Target and waited for the exclusive bonus feature to be posted online, but I'm glad I was able to get the price match and (legally) get the special feature.

Just finished BOBW Bluray (awesome!), now onto season 3

I am having trouble with the Ultraviolet download. I cannot find the link on the paramount page?

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.

Just curious, what does VAT stand for? Value after Tax?

The only reason I know is because I lived in Romania for three years and they had a 19% VAT there too.

Success at Best Buy!

I know one poster said that they "literally have no way of matching Target's discount", but I watched the cashier manually type in the prices to match the Target deal.
Awesome! I'm about to get hit up my local BB in a few mins, I hope they'll do a full price match like you got
*fingers crossed*

My copy came in from Amazon today. When I opened the case, shards of blue plastic came raining out; I just hope none of the discs are damaged.
