Deals Made in ‘America’25 Oct, 2011 By: John Latchem
Following a week in which it seemed every new release had an exclusive goodie attached to it by the big retailers, the Oct. 25 new releases were mostly left to stand on their own.
Among the major new releases, the only real exclusive was found at Best Buy, which offered the Captain America: The First Avenger Blu-ray with a slipcover adorned with a replica of an early “Captain America” comic book cover.
Best Buy also offered the Thor Blu-ray combo pack at $19.99 (regularly $29.99) with the purchase of any version of Captain America.
More superhero savings could be had at Best Buy, which offered $6 in savings with the purchase of any two “Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” DVDs from Disney. Vol. 3 and Vol. 4 were released Oct. 25. The sets are priced at $12.99 each.
Also at Best Buy, fans of Jurassic Park could get a copy of the new trilogy Blu-ray with exclusive steelbook case packaging for $59.99, $10 more than the regular Blu-ray.
