1) Vexell is a pricing error. The SKU on the box is different than the site. The CS rep honored the price because the description does say "Blu-ray disc".

2) Samurai 7 is deleted/discontinued. The $19.99 is correct in RSS. One Best Buy of five in my area had any in stock. The store I went to had two copies. One had a hole smashed into the bottom, and I got the other one.

Didn't know Samurai 7 is discontinued. The Vexille price should be honored as that is the only BD of Vexille they carry.

If you check best buys site it looks like these are in very limited stock. I hope some of my local best buys have them on the shelf and its just not showing online. If not i really hope Amazon price matches

Many of these deals are YMMV. Some are discontinued and limited quantity or pricing errors.

My local Best Buy (about 45 minutes away) stopped carrying anime a long time ago. Samurai 7 on Blu Ray for $19.99 is a great deal. Paid WAY more than that for the SD version a long time ago. Wish I didn't have so many of these on SD, as I can't afford to double dip, and the reviews of Funimation Blu Ray don't justify the cost of double dipping. GREAT deals for the first time buyer, though!!!!

there were listings for it, and i even saw a picture of it, from some jerk on ebay (seriously, it matched the new art and all that) a few months back, as a part of a bigger lot. ebay pulled it for some reason, perhaps since there were more than 4 unreleased titles in there.

there really is no mention now, so who knows what happened.
