When Star Wars: The Complete Saga hit shelves Sept. 16, fans shopping at Target could pick up the boxed set for $79.99 with a free eight-piece lithograph set ($9.99 on its own). Within a few days, however, the price of the set was up to $89.99, with a new deal in place — get a $30 Target gift card with purchase of any “Star Wars” Blu-ray set (individual trilogies were offered at $44.99 each) with a $159 Panasonic 3D Blu-ray player.
Target also touted its DVD version of Bridesmaids with an exclusive “Girls’ Night In Party Pack” printable download valued at $15.
Target and Best Buy both offered $8 instant savings with the joint purchase of Disney’s Spooky Buddies and the Dumbo: 70th Anniversary Edition. Target’s Dumbo Blu-ray/DVD combo also includes an exclusive activity book.
Best Buy is offering a free Dumbo plush with purchase of the movie, and a free collectible case with preorders of the Oct. 3 Lion King Blu-ray. Best Buy also has an exclusive Blu-ray edition of the first season of the new “Hawaii Five-0.”
Walmart offered the exclusive Blu-ray/DVD combo pack of Lego Star Wars: The Padawan Menace for $13.
