Best Buy Pushes 'John Carter'13 Mar, 2012 By: John Latchem
Just as John Carter is opening in theaters to lukewarm box office reception, Best Buy is touting a promotion for the Disney film. Consumers who buy a Blu-ray of Remember the Titans or either of the “National Treasure” movies at $14.99 each can get a coupon for $8 off a John Carter admission ticket. The offer expires April 7.
Best Buy also offered a $10 savings with the purchase of the first seasons of “Breakout Kings” and “The Killing,” and triple Reward Zone bonus points with purchase of Paramount’s The Adventures of Tintin Blu-ray or 3D combo packs.
Target had exclusive availability of two Universal shows: Fairly Legal: Season One and In Plain Sight: Season Four, at $25 each. Target also gave away an MP3 audio book (touted as having a $30 value) with copies of Anchor Bay’s My Week With Marilyn ($17 DVD, $23 Blu-ray).
