New Batman Movie = Discounts at Best Buy
July 30, 2010

Batman: Under the Red Hood, the latest release in the WB/DC Comics animated movies was released on Tuesday this week.


I honestly forgot until yesterday.  Popping into Target, they had no copies of the basic or 2 disc versions left.  Best Buy is down the street, so I went there next.  Best Buy also had very few copies left.  But I was more interested in the other items I saw…

Batman the Animated Series season 1 – 20$.
Batman Beyond seasons 1 or 2 or 3 – 15$ each.
Birds of Prey the entire series – 20$.
and that was just the beginning.

Frequent readers know I am always on the lookout for a bargain.  Today’s was Batman Beyond season 2.  I have no idea why the Batman Beyond series is packaged this way, but Season 1 has 13 episodes, season 2 has 26 episodes, and season 3 has 13 episodes.  As a result, "season 2" is usually crazy expensive compared to the others even when there is a sale.  But not today.  Today it was 15$ just like the other 2.  So, I now own season 2 of Batman Beyond.

Good hunting to the rest of you.

"Gathered together from the four corners of the universe." Oh, wait, that's the show, not me. Erik "SuperFriend" Skov never actually got to appear on the show, although he did watch it every week. Erik spent 6 years working for Hasbro in Pawtucket, RI before leaving for a job that paid more (Why else would a collector leave the company that was making Star Wars, Transformers, and while I was there Batman). I used to post all over the net. These days I tend to hang my hat at AFI.

    Dude, In the past couple of months, I bought the first season of Airwolf for $7.00, the first season of Burn Notice for $7.00, and the complete run of Buck Rogers for $15.00. All at Wal-Mart.

    Bargains rule!

    Man – tomorrow is going to be expensive…sorta…

    My LCS has a 20% off sale, so I’m pickin’ up a crud load there…and it looks like I’ll be hitting Best Buy to grab up some DVD’s…!!!

    just heard the other day that Batman Beyond box set is coming soon. like $99, tho with a couple extras and booklet.

    • Erik superfriend says:

      Wow. Too rich for my tastes. So far I’ve landed seasons 2 and 3 for a total of 25$. Maybe this will cause a few folks to dump their individual season sets and I can pick up season 1 used for a deal!

    Was planning on going to best Buy anyway to pick up Batman: Under the Red Hood (single disc version). Went Saturday & picked it up, along with the three seasons of Batman Beyond (yes, $15 each) and picked up Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths for $12.99 as well. I would’ve bought Superman: Doomsday too if it was available. Good trip at Best Buy nonetheless.

    How long does the sale last for? I was going to pick up BB season 2, but balked at the sticker price. I had no idea they were on sale…

  • George says:

    Looks like just this past weekend, although checking on their Web site, Season 3 is still on sale for $15.
