Starting now, Amazon is offering Dances with Wolves: 20th Anniversary Edition for only $12.99 (57% off MSRP). The price tracker shows that this is the lowest this has been at the web retail giant. This offer is valid until 2 p.m. PST, or when stock runs out.
However, it has been even cheaper at other retailers, using a $5 coupon from Coupons.com.

It doesn't make any sense to pre-order blu-rays if they're going to keep doing this. "Back To The Futures", "Space 1999 - season 1", and the "Sound Of Music" for example all had fairly deep discounts after the release date. I wonder if the Star Wars Complete Saga is going to do that as well. It seems now that the only guarantee that you get is a copy if they run out which Amazon almost never does. This is a lightning deal only special; however, as stated when you get major discounts after the release I may stop preordering with the exception of IV series. TV series seem to still have the best pre-order deals however not by much.
I have been ripped many many times by Amazon on BD pre-orders, where they ship all the pre-orders at one price and then, as soon as they're out of the price guarantee window, they drop they price substantially.
Target's store price for this is 14.99 for a while yet (just checked: thru Apr 2). Throw in the coupon at coupons.com and down to 9.99 it goes. Providing you can find it in stock (you might have to have them search the back room for copies). (And since this deal apparently is going to end real soon now, may be the only real option left to save big, although there is a chance that wmt maybe is selling it for 15.)
Why does blu-ray.com always say "until stock runs out" for lightning deals? Stock has nothing to do with the lightning deals - they lightning deals end when the coupons run out. There is still plenty of stock left to buy at regular price.
Well I never saw this film but I've been entering a daily contest two try and win it with about a week left. Plus I figured if I don't win, a catalog title like this is bound to drop in price like it did today eventually. You'll see at 12.99 again
The coupon is still available at coupons.com and Target's in-store price (at least in Los Angeles) is $14.99 until April 2nd, so I just got it for $11.45 out the door(!) One tip: Target divides their Blus by "action", "comedy", etc with a section of new releases and then one that just says "Blu-ray hi-definition" or similar. But the first one I went didn't even have a drama section, another didn't have it in stock and I found it at the Granada Hills store in the miscellaneous "hi-def" section. So get the coupon (check exp date) and check all around your local Target's Blu section, or check back when they get more stock.
