Thanks for the head's-up, Doghart; ordered! I'm not a big movie fan but the first Iron Man was so damn entertaining I wanted to get this. Like wines, I refuse to pay more than $20 for a movie, this dipped down faster than I expected.

I'll bet it's limited availablity. I'm calling tomorrow for a rain check on that price when it becomes available.
Good luck with that. Retailers do not have to honor advertised prices if it was a mistake. Considering the price and the extremely short time that it was "available" at that price I'd wager that it was an error.
The email makes no reference to pricing error, but availability. If this is accurate, Wal-Mart should honor the price when the product becomes available, or they should admit they screwed the pooch with an apology.
"Limited Availability"???? Nice try, RipoffMart! This Bluray isn't even released for another two weeks or so, and I doubt the studio is wondering if it'll be a big seller or not. One of your slave-wage pimple-faced minions in India entered the wrong price on the website, didn't they?!? And you don't have the corporate ethics (oxymoron, I know) to honor a transaction that has been completed/committed to, do you??
Make sure to delete my email address from your database, or I'll be sure to sign you up for every spambot I can think of. And I fart in the general direction of your brick-n-mortar monstrosity every day after work.
You recently received an email from us that your order of Iron Man 2 (Blu-ray + Standard DVD + Digital Copy) (Widescreen) had been cancelled due to a limited supply issue. The cancellation was due to a pricing error on this item, not a supply issue. We're sorry for the confusion and the inconvenience.
To thank you for your understanding, we will honor the $15 price that was displayed at the time of your purchase. We will email you a $10.64 eGift Card to cover the difference from the current price of $24.96 plus tax. Your eGift card will be emailed within the next 24 hours and can be applied towards the purchase of this item or a different item. We’ll issue one eGift Card per affected customer; this card can be used online at Walmart.com only.
If you would still like to preorder the Iron Man 2 Blu-ray, please wait for your eGift card and then follow the link below to place your order:
It's not an exaggeration, but I have a somewhat pointed sense of humor sometimes. Although, I probably blew any chance of me getting a gift card like Rope did. He's a couple hours' drive from me, maybe if I bring some beer....
