FYI - Rocky Anthology for $9.00

I will admit it, I like the rocky series. I never really liked it enough to pay $15/movie for it, but I thought it was pretty good. (have not seen it in quite awhile)

I was quite interested, however, when Target offered the 5 movie anthology for $9.00 + shipping. (no in-store pickups allowed...)

It works out to just under $12.00 shipped for all 5 movies. Even if you only watch them a few times, it is a pretty good deal.

Just wanted to make you all aware of it.

    HOLY CRAP!!!!!
    that maybe one of the best DVD deals i have ever seen
    good looking out McLoki -- i'm on this like white on the proverbial rice
    (and maybe they'll let me exchange the Rocky V for Walk the Line or something:D )
    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    I wonder if those of us who ordered will get theirs? Either way, I would count this as a limited time deal. At least you are dealing with a major retailer so Credit Card information should be safe.....

    I've seen Target do this before. Its usually a pricing error and they typically cancel all the orders with the error. When I just checked, it was $46, which seems right for a 5 movie set.

    Never know though, you might get them if they shipped before the error was noticed.
    Main 2-ch:
    Sony SS-M9; LSA Statement Amplifier; VPI HW-19 Mk3/Sumiko Premier FT-4/Audio Technica AT15SA; Pass Labs DIY Pearl Phono; Sony SCD-C333ES SACD Changer; TEAC UD-301 DAC; Dell/WYSE 5010 (running Daphile); Sony ST-SA5ES Tuner; Nanotec Golden Strada speaker cables (SR+#79 Shotgun); Audioquest Coral interconnects

    Meh, it's still listed as 8.97 for me. I bought mine first thing this morning, hope it goes through. I've always enjoyed the Rocky movies (except 5), and the first two are worth more than twelve bucks A PIECE to me, so... here's hopin.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    it's kind of funny...
    all of my co-workers just went on-line to snag their sets, and are coming at me with a $44 pricepoint and a litany of "what gives?"
    "you snooze, you lose" i say, though it seems i might be tarred and/or feathered:D

    just tell 'em you were confused, and it was really the 3rd season of Knot's Landing that was on sale
    then make a run for it while throwing banana peels behind you or laying down oil slicks ala Spy Hunter:p
