twilightAt midnight tonight, Saturday, March 21, the long-awaited Twilight DVD will be released, giving those who love Edward and Bella’s love story a chance to watch the vampire film over and over.

Who’s got the best deal on the DVD? It may depend on what you’re looking for.

Several sources say the Target package – a 3-disc deluxe edition plus a free download of the film on iTunes — is the best deal, at $17.99.

The set includes the 2-Disc Special Edition plus an exclusive bonus disc with more than 45 minutes of never-before-seen content, including the an iTunes download of the film. The bonus content included a conversation with Stephenie Meyer, Robert Pattinson on “Becoming Edward,” Kristen Stewart on “Becoming Bella,” Catherine Hardwicke’s vampire kiss montage, Bella’s lullaby remix music video and Edward’s piano concert.

Target doesn’t appear to be having any midnight release parties in South Florida, but you can order online or get the disk in the store starting March 21.

Looking for a party? We can’t get the party locator on the official website to work, but The Miami Herald has a list of parties in Miami-Dade, Broward and the Keys  in today’s Weekend section.

(Nowadays this model sells for $12.99, so this bargain saves you $10.)  The sale starts at midnight Monday, March 9, and runs through March 14 or until supplies run out at participating merchants.

  • Wal-Mart Super Stores, open 24 hours, should have the doll at midnight Monday
  • Other Wal-Marts will join the sale on Tuesday morning when they open.
  • Check your favorite Barbie source to see if they are turning back the price tags to 1959.
