wow, sounds like you got very lucky!
I doubt many other people (if any) will get this like you did, but that's awesome if they do :)

Thought I'd throw out the possibility. I know there are a bunch of AT users in the Huntsville area who might be able to give it a shot...

what happened was that the central server crashed (country-wide) and restarted... but with a glitch. From around 12:30pm to 1:30 central (I think), that "special" sale happened, and they tried to fix it. Some people DID get lucky and walked out with free cd's, dvd's and vhs'. But that was quickly remidied. So YOU WERE in fact lucky.

Hey man, not everyone's willing to spend 50 dollars to buy a DVD player when their children owns a DVD game console (that they don't know how to use)

were you doing with a vhs tape!??!

The didn't have any free DVD players. Duh. ;)

Was the crash related to that worm that's making the rounds? I think it affected Pricewatch's site the day it was out; not sure what the name is though.

Did the cashier immediately go on break, and buy a few dozen tapes?:)
