Target's Jack Sparrow figure with Blu-ray
May 10 was kind of a slow day for new releases, with the biggest promotions having little to do with the titles just hitting shelves.
Target, for example, is offering a free Capt. Jack Sparrow action figure (regularly $7.99) with the purchase of any “Pirates of the Caribbean” Blu-ray/DVD combo pack at $14.99 each. The combo packs include an $8.50 coupon that can be applied toward a ticket to see the latest installment of the franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
Target also touted a $5 savings with purchase of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never (available May 13) on DVD or Blu-ray with any Justin Bieber CD.
Best Buy is touting a “Trade & Save” program through June 4, offering customers a chance to trade in any previously owned DVD at the customer service desk to receive a $5 credit toward the selection of select Blu-ray titles. Customers are limited to five coupons per visit.
Full details are available at BestBuy.com/tradeandsave, which offers a complete list of the more than 135 Blu-ray movies eligible for the discount.
