In Season 3 of Game of Thrones based on George R. R. Martin's bestselling books, the battling families of Westeros continue to clash as bonds are strained, loyalties are tested, and cruel fates are met. It's now available and Best Buy has some exclusive packaging.
The war for control of Westeros rages on in season 3 of Game of Thrones. Robb Stark and his northern allies continue their campaign to gain independence for their lands. The young king leads by a sense of honor and justice, but soon learns that winning a war is not always about winning battles.
The Lannisters are up to their usual tricks in the capital. Tyrion is recovering from his battle injuries, as well as a bruised ego after being replaced as hand of the king. As the new hand, Tywin Lannister generates plans to exude more control over the world. The young king Joffery continues to be awful, but finds his new fiancé to be of some enjoyment- much to dismay of his mother.
Daenerys Targaryen seeks to gain real power as she and her small band of followers continue their journey to retake her rightful kingdom. Seeking an army to start her campaign, she must use her wits (and dragons) to negotiate with contenders in the East. She learns that power must be taken by those who want it, but real power is about giving it back.
John Snow continues his infiltration of the Wildlings. He must prove himself to his new allies in order to keep his cover, but there are temptations beyond the wall that could make him question his oath of honor. Nearby, his half-brother Brandon and company find they are not the only ones seeking answers to their mystical abilities.
There are many other stories and plots going on in the wider world, but the best way to keep up with all of them is to own the new season yourself!
Choose your side with this Best Buy Exclusive packaging:
Show your allegiance to the king in the north with this exclusive House Stark Dire Wolf case. Robb Stark and friends continue their war to liberate their homeland, but the young king soon learns there is more to war than just winning battles.
A Lannister always pays his debts, but this is one case that won’t break the bank. The Lannister family returns to their cunning ways in their continued efforts to seize total control of Westeros.
What good is a Game of Thrones collection without representing the Kings from old Valeria? Daenerys Targaryen learns how strength and mercy can be powerful qualities in a leader as she continues her campaign to take back her family’s kingdom.

I want to preorder the third season with the exclusive packaging due to the 500 bonus My Best Buy Points offer running through 10/19/13, This can be seen at the following link:
Unfortunately, when trying to preorder one of the Exclusive Package versions (in my case, I'd like the Stark version), it says that the estimated arrival date is 12/30-01/05/2015. My CC expires before then and the system will not allow me to place the order. This set, as you stated above, is being released in Feburary 2014.
Can somebody please look into this and fix the release date on the exclusive package versions? Thanks for any help!

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We were able to get our business teams involved and get the release date corrected.

I called Best Buy and couldn't get any real answers. They just told me it's no longer available on their website so that's why they canceled it. I asked if there was the other versions still available or if they plan on still doing an exclusive version of some kind but he wasn't much help there either. Just told me they have the third season bluray regular plain version and that was it.
@jarofchris Not sure if you had any luck or not. But it's looks like they discontinued this idea. I'm not sure though. But looks like I gotta go to amazon.com to pick up an exclusive version even if it is bulky and won't on my shelf with my other matching sets.

Pretty disappointed if this was cancelled completely. Was looking forward to the targaryen cover. Guess I'll be getting the standard dragon shadow cover now.

Pretty disappointed if this was cancelled completely. Was looking forward to the targaryen cover. Guess I'll be getting the standard dragon shadow cover from Amazon instead.

So is it confirmed that these box sets were canceled? Or is the website just messing with us. The product page says it's "out of stock."
