Target has the Star Trek Trilogy: The Kelvin Timeline for $37.99 with free shipping.

Pretty close to the previous Amazon deal and counts towards the B2G1 free deal listed elsewhere.

For fellow AV enthusiasts, heads up that none of the JJ Star Trek's are "true 4K." It's upscaled 2K video. The physical discs do NOT have Dolby Vision. Source: Digiraw's Real 4K vs Fake 4K List [digiraw.com]
I'm unsure if this 3-pack physical copy comes with any digital codes.
If you want Dolby Vision, I recommend getting the digital UHD versions through Vudu. Source: Community Spreadsheet of 4K Codes and where to redeem them [google.com]

My opinion:
As a lifelong Trek fan, I bought the JJ 2009 film from Vudu hoping it would be a spectacle for my new 65" OLED. Unfortunately, the upscaled 2K was noticeable; the image looked oversharpened and it wasn't as "crisp" as a true 4K film. Dolby Vision (which is basically HDR on steroids) was cool but the wow-factor wasn't as strong as other films. Moana, Ready Player One, and Star Wars: Rogue One are all amazing when viewed on a Dolby Vision display.

True AV enthusiasts prefer high bit rate 4K (even if upscaled from 2k digital intermediate with no DV) and lossless sounds found only on 4K physical media.

Note: Ready Player One and Moana were not transferred from 4K (or higher) master.

Also keep in mind that they're still filming the next one so you'll eventually be 1 short for this collection soon enough. I loved all 3 films and looking forward to the next.

I'm on the other side of that fence with this.
I would point to these to illustrate how true 4K vs fake 4K isn't a good barometer on how good the PQ AND AQ is on a movie.

These movies are actually better than a majority including true 4K especially on the AQ side.

I always get a kick when people mention "AV enthusiasts" then leave out half of the movie, IMO the better half.

As far as DV IMO it's really only a benefit on disc especially if you have a good player.

I'll give you an example, Captain Marvel.
On Disney it has DV but the disc does not.
Playing the disc on my Panny 820 onto a C9, there is no advantage to DV digitally. As a matter of fact the 820's tone mapping does such a good job it actually makes it look slightly better PQ wise.

AQ wise there is no contest, there is a significant drop in quality with digital.

I would mention that the transfer on Captain Marvel is not that great but that's true for almost all Marvel movies.

The transfer on a movie plays the biggest role on quality not what it was shot in IMO.

Even if you go thru Vudu, Netflix, Apple all 4k movies are not true 4k at highest bitrate. At best you're getting 35%45% of the tree lossless image and audio.

In the end for uhd and Dolby vision Atmos and DTS. It's best to use a disc.

That's absolutely true, but not all discs come with Dolby Vision. Some of the Harry Potter movies and Moana are great examples. I'd rather take the reduced bitrate but watch it where Dolby Vision is provided (assuming the DV mastering was good and not "fake HDR" a la The Mandalorian).

Even if you believe DV digitally is better than no DV on disc you are forgetting about the other half of movies.

AQ wise you are sacrificing a significant amount of quality for the convenience.

Seems to be a little cheaper at Best Buy, if you aren't going to leverage any other deals:
