Default Save $5.00 on 'The Muppet Christmas Carol' at Amazon

Clip the coupon located not too far beneath the price:

Disney really starting to mix up their products strategies...

On this release they are charging more for the edition w/ a dvd(usually have to pay more for a digital copy)

plus they are dropping the BD/dvd combos in BD packaging on some releases and going w/ dvd/BD in dvd packaging or 3/4/5 discs BD/dvd/dc combos in BD packaging

May put in a place holder for this. Not quite sure if I want it or not

This appears to have 3 different editions on AMZ for a Nov 6th release:

(1) 20th Anniversary Edition, Amazon Exclusive, 3-disc combo (BD/DVD/DC) $27.99
(2) 20th Anniversary Edition, standard release, 2-disc combo (BD/DC) $17.86
(3) Kermit's 50th Anniversary Edition (1992), 1-disc DVD $14.99

Notice how they dropped the DVD from #2, perhaps appeasing those who've complained about paying extra for an unwanted DVD? I'd prefer they just do away with it altogether and not make #1 an option. But of course, the coupon is only offered for the most expensive option. And based on the two price points, the DVD is valued at $10!

Shit - I must have missed this thread. Now the price went UP $5.00 to offset the coupon.
Lately though Target has been selling these second-tier titles for a great price the week after release, we shall see.

Go to change.org and compose a kindly worded, persuasive treatise to Disney appealing to their gentler side (think Bambi) . I'm sure Nate could help us with the messaging.
