    Maybe a bit late now but my parents local Woolworths, Banstead in Surrey, had this for £2.95!! :eek:

    Was the only copy left that my Mum spotted hiding when we were birthday shopping for me early last week.

    Maybe I was just lucky to catch a local price reduction or a mistake even but thought ppl might appreciate a heads up on this if you want to check your local stores.

    The single-disc edition is £4.99 on their website.

    Regards,

    Alan

    Did this scan at £2.95?

    The two disk is the new release, so like the Alien Quad mis-price :smoke: :D there should be plenty in!

    It scans at £3.99 which is the same price as the original 1 disc edition (which must be a nationwide error) . £2.95 must have been a store mis-price.

    I've checked out 3 Woolworths shops and can't find this DVD in any of them. Shame about that.

    enajh2 - Thanks for the heads up on this! I tried all my local stores which didn't have any and kept checking over the last month.

    However today I was in Stratford and thought I'd check out their local Woolies. Low and behold they had 1 copy left. Saving Private Ryan DTS for £3.99. Excellent! :clap:

    Thanks again.

    I just thought I'd pass by my local store, having already checked it now and again in the pass couple of months only to return with disappointment, but :clap: today, there it was in front of me!:) - at £3.99. The outer box was slightly damaged where it needs to be glued back together again but that's no concern at this price.

    Even the girl at the counter was surprised at the price.

    So there is still hope for others.....happy hunting.

    I managed to get a copy from my local Woolies - have looked there in the past without much success.

    However went in yesterday and there were a few copies hidden behind other DVDS - perfect condition

    Amaray (or copies of) are the standard plastic cases that most DVDs come in.

    popped into woolies in carmarthen today after reading the £3.99 thread but couldnt see any on the shelves :( so decided to ask at the counter....lo n behold the assistant said there should be one left as the discs are here :) but no sign of the case, he said if it turns up in next few days will put it one side for me....when i asked the price answer was about £17.99 at a guess, when i told him it had been selling elsewhere for £3.99 he would not believe me so he checked and was amazed at £ 3.99 so i walked out with the discs in a plain case at the knock down price of £2.99 as no labels.........now where were those cover sites :clap:
