Just filled out my survey. Got my CD at Target on sale for $7.99, couldn't find it at first and the girl working there said she's never heard of John Mellencamp. What a crime! Found it on the new releases end aisle. Love the music. Victoria

Went to Walmart today even though I cant stand that place and they didnt even have it on the new release section, kind of crappy.  They did have it though 9.99.

Of the places Ive been seems like Best Buy (9.99) and Borders (13.99) are promoting it the best.

Target has the best price. 7.99

Barnes n Noble has the worst price. 16.99 (on sale too, ouch)

and Wal-Mart doesnt have it on the new release section, yet another reason I hate Walmart.

Next I may check out Costco tomorrow, we'll see.

I went to 2 Targets in MN today.  Willmar and Hutchinson.  Both were sold out!  Price 7.99
I did the survey the other day so now I am just going to reply here, or should we do the survey each time?  Your Opinion Tony.......
It made me smile when they sold out.  I bought a copy at Target, Shopko and Amazon on Tuesday.  I was going to buy 2 more for more Mellenheads to be, but will have to do some more searching for me and promoting for us, that means more stores to "check it out"

Did a check of my local FYE---no promo material at all hung.  CD was on the bottom shelf near floor, but the very young clerk did know who John was and where the cd was located, totally embarrassed my 20 year old, by taking a pic with my phone of the cd.

I just did a survey for the Niagara Falls, NY stores ..... it was quite funny when I went to Target, I actually could not find it at first, so I asked the electronics dept. clerk if he has John Mellencamps New CD, and he looked at me with this puzzled look on his face, and said who, and I just sort of rolled my eyes and said John Mellencamp, and then the light bulb went on, we found them !!

Completed survey-visited FYE and Starbucks, attempting to send photo of
shelf position in FYE.  Terribly placed near floor, no posters or information hung,
you would never know its there.  The clerk thought I was a nutcase taking a pic of
it, on my phone!

Looking over the submission logs I see that some of you have been having problems submitting because there are multiple submissions.

I think that may have been due to the captcha on the form, which I have now turned off. Hopefully we won't get too many spam robots submitting to the form.

posted 1 survey, which covered 2 stores (Target & K-Mart).

sale price at Target was over, was now $13.99

K-Mart had no JM whatsoever.  they did have a new release end cap, but no JM on it, or in artist bins
