After working a long day, I went to Best Buy to pick up the Iron Man movie Ultimate Edition DVD 2-disc set. Earlier in the day, Jim and I had discussed that we wanted to get that, as it seemed to have decent extras.
I get to Best Buy at a little before 7 p.m. and guess what?
The Ulimate edition is completely sold out. It has been sold out since mid-afternoon. The deluxe edition Iron Man helmet is also sold out. All that is left is a smallish pile of regular edition DVD's. The lady I spoke to said it was crazy how many people came in to get the special edition. they simply hadn't anticipated demand.
Since Borders was close by, I ran by there. I had $5 in Borders rewards to use, so I figured that was the ticket.
There were only two copies of the Ultimate edition left. There were only six copies of the regular one left. Borders had a crazy Iron Man day as well. They simply hadn't anticipated the demand, much like their fellow retailer.
Not wanting to tempt fate, and not sure if there would still be a sale price next week, I picked up one of the Ultimate editions that was left and purchased it. Thank God- now I could take it home to Jim, who was pretty excited, much like I was.
How crazy is that? I figured folks would go for the regular edition, but I was wrong.
Did you have any problems picking the 2-disc set up?
