    It is right as there are only 19 4K/UHD titles among the 264 titles that are discounted by 15%.

    I did a search for 4K movies in the app. Many, many more than 19. One up with the Save 15% on select movies tag.

    I just scanned the first 24 4K titles I have. 17 came up with the 15% offer-Air Force One through Dark Knight Rises. It is not possible there are only 19 if the scanner can be believed.

    You’re right, their site is crazy when I click on that 15% off icon it brings up just 264 titles across the three disc formats. However, if I search by each format like 4K or Blu-ray, it brings up many more titles.

    I went to Target this morning prior to reading Robert's post and I bought Bad Times at the El Royale and Juliet, Naked, assuming that since they were movies, the coupon would apply to them.

    I just checked the receipt and they did in fact give me the discount on both.

    Whether they're actually included in the sale, or whether the cashier did that manually because I said I had a coupon that I believed should work for all movies, I don't know. But it worked out for me.

    Also, even though I went mid-morning, and Bad Times at the El Royale has only been out since today, they were already out of 4K copies. I saw a spot on the shelf designated for it with the $24.99 price sticker next to the DVD and Blu-ray editions, but it was empty. So either they didn't get a lot in to begin with, or a lot of other people have been in there this morning to pick up the 4K. I only needed the Blu-ray, so I got it without issue, but I noticed the absence of the 4K from the shelf.

    The sign in the store said "new releases not included" whatever that means. I assume within the last few weeks

    Right, "Bad Times at the El Royale" isn't among the titles that are getting that 15% discount off. 4K titles like "The Lion King" and "Equalizer 2" will have that 15% discount.

    Well, then I got lucky and they did it for me anyway, because my receipt clearly recorded the discount.

    Still a good deal if you want any of the participating titles and can work out what they are.

    I almost headed to Target yesterday afternoon to get the titles I wanted. Almost. I'll go on Friday, which was my plan all along. If the two local Target's are out of what I want, then I'm doing a little farther south on Saturday and have three more stores available there.
