I saw some mention of some Disney titles on sale from Costco a month or two or three ago, but I'm a little surprised by the number of Thumbs Down.

This is Disney after all and high prices are their bailiwick. The $20-$24 price range the OP quoted is pretty accurate.
Target's 20% off sales have only lined up once that I am aware of with a Disney Pixar sale making them tolerable yet still overpriced (compared to other studios).

Since they have done away with coupons, it's either these kind of prices or doing a big order with the Disney Movie Club and averaging the movies cost out to $9-11 or so for the U.S. Versions
Ordering the overseas versions (which I hope everyone does) gets you into the $10 range per movie as well and cuts down on Disney's ability to gouge though they lack a Digital copy but there are a few that are the wrong Region so be sure to check with past Disney Zavvi & Amazon U.K. for the titles that are...

I must say, I'm confused about all the thumbs-down myself. I'm a long-time SD'er with several movie-related FP movie deals, and for a Blu-ray + HD code, this is one of the better deals I've seen for Disney/Pixar. I'd love for someone who TD'd to please explain why.

Agreed, Disney titles especially the ones with digital HD included never go on sale but it seems lately there's been multiple hopefully this means that they're trying to get rid of them all to roll out 4K releases

I agree. Cars 1 & 2 (that includes Digital Code) in particular have been somewhat difficult for me to find for a decent price. I'll be picking these up on my next trip to Costco for sure.

Other movies like Brave, I was able to snag for $8 from amazon. And others like Good Dino, Inside Out, and Finding Dory have had digital codes available for $2-$5 from Hollar more often than not (which is why I assume you're getting TDs)

That's a good point - at least some of the digital codes used to be on Hollar for cheap. Sadly, it looks like Hollar is out of the Disney code business now. I suspect Disney cracked down on them just as they are doing against Redbox now. Apart from Inside Out and the Finding Nemo/Dory movies, I don't think Hollar ever had the others.

They had The Good Dinosaur too.

And yeah, I think after Disney sued RedBox, Hollar was either told to knock it off or they preemptively took them down to avoid any suits.

It should be an interesting case to watch.

The First Sale Doctrine is long standing, codified law
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fir...e_doctrine
Redbox purchased the retail copies and has a right JUST LIKE YOU OR I DO to resell all or part of what they purchased regardless of the silly little warnings that copyright/content creators put on for example books that say you may not resell this book. BULL$#IT!!
The only interesting question is how far this will even make it in Federal Courts. The wild cards are TWO. How far the Supreme Court has swung to the right (pro-business) works in Disney's favor, but it's unlikely that even they will choose to see or hear this case as anything other than settled case law from long ago and the Supreme Court of the U.S. would be a long ways off if it makes it anywhere at all.
The second is, is this a PHYSICAL piece of paper with a code on it that they are selling in which the seller has the right to do so under the First Right Doctrine. =OR= is this Digital pure and simple in which case the Supreme Court for years now has sided 100% with Digital Copyright holders in many (NON-tech-savvy-uncommon-sense decisions).

It would be a noteworthy matter if a lower court found that Disney had some standing to go forward with the case. It would be worrisome if it did go forward and they ruled in Disney's favor not just for what it would mean for Redbox but nation wide that would be a C change to established law and those things don't happen very often. And what a chilling effect this would have on the resale and code trading markets.Mad

Disney got itself into this situation by refusing to offer Redbox a contract for discounted bulk movie purchasing (which the other studios have had since the wake of the original lawsuits Redbox filed against several of them for blocking Redboxes access to their bulk sales channels. The one thing those other studios learned in the years following that was just how big of a movie buyer Redbox is. They are the biggest movie buyer out there). The end result was contracts and 28 day waiting periods imposed by some studios not all. Other terms vary by studios such as some studios' movies can't be resold in Redbox kiosks they must be destroyed, other studios allow their discs to be sold (Sony, Paramount, some Warner ...). Some studios require Redbox to buy their RENTAL discs in order to get the bulk pricing etc. etc. or they offer them at enough of a discount that Redbox buys them.

So Disney which has no problem selling their high priced wares gave Redbox the old FU no discount for bulk buying go buy it off the shelf at full price like everyone else, we don't like that you rent our discs. so in return Redbox parts out the combos rents them, then sells them and they recently started selling the Digital copies seems reasonable to me. Disney should have and should enter into a contract with them. Bulk pricing in exchange for Redbox stopping selling Disney Blu-rays and DVDs in the kiosk and they would eliminate the Digital copy problem as they don't come with bulk disc orders. MORE DISNEY GREEDY BEHAVIOR ON DISPLAY.
