$8 OFF Toy Story 3 DVD/Blu-Ray combo – on sale today! November 2, 2010

My nearly-5-year-old and I listened to an interview with one of the writers of Toy Story 3 on NPR. I enjoyed hearing the way in which they came up with the story line, how they developed the characters, etc. What was my son’s response? “MOM! Toy Story 3 comes out on DVD on November 2nd! MOM! We HAVE to get that! Can we? Can we? Pleeeeeeease?”

Well, TODAY is THE day… THE day that Toy Story 3 comes out on DVD & Blu-Ray in the stores! Click here to head over to Disney Movie Rewards for a printable coupon for $8 OFF the Toy Story 3 DVD/Blu-Ray Combo!

If you’re not already a member, you’ll need to sign up (free and quick). (If you took advantage of the deal I posted last spring that got you free tickets to see Toy Story 3 in the theater, you’re already a member!)

Don’t have a Blu-Ray player? We don’t either. However, I’m buying the DVD/Blu-Ray combo pack because, chances are, we’ll get a Blu-Ray player in the future… AND with this $8 OFF coupon, the combo costs just $1 more than the DVD alone! (Target has the combo pack on sale right now for $24.99 and the DVD for $15.99… Making the combo pack just $16.99 + tax after the couponFind a Target near you.)

Expires: The coupon expires November 8, 2010.

Thanks, SlickDeals!

Ok, say it with me, “WOW!” If you have a Disney fan in your household, circle of friends, or extended family, this is a deal you simply can’t pass up!

This qualifies for FREE Super Saver Shipping on orders of $25 or more (of qualifying items), so go ahead and buy 2 of these and give one as a gift! Only want to buy one? No problem!
