    Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

    Classic Comedies Collection: Ghostbusters, Stripes (Extended Cut), Groundhog Day.

    The Disclaimer Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price.

    "LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means I could not locate a definite price for the item, and the ad is all I have to go on. Retailers use these phrases in advertisements so that they do not violate MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) agreements with the studios. Doing so can cost them thousands or even millions of dollars in co-op advertising funds.

    I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp. The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well as those which I consider will be of interest to a majority of consumers (and sometimes I’ll miss one!). I don't get paid for this, and I don't have the time to list every DVD. So, please don't complain! If there is a title not included in the RoundUp that you want to see, just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone!

    Note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the RoundUp. They set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. And, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.


    The Specials

    **BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Lord of War (1-disc) AND Two for the Money are available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one(s) !

    --The Final Destination Scared 2 Death Pack listed in the RoundUp above contains FREE MOVIE CASH to see Final Distination 3 in theaters 2/10/2006. $10.50 value..

    --Best Buy is advertising this week a sale price of $16.99 on the complete HBO series First and Ten (former Wal-Mart exclusive item).

    --Best Buy is also advertising one of its “Our Lowest Advertised Prices” on Queer As Folk: Season 2 of $39.99.

    --And, again, even though this does not involve a new release, I think it’s worthy enough to note that Best Buy this week is offering up all three Lord of the Rings Extended Edition sets for just $19.99 apiece! [​IMG] Wow! Its just January and that could end up qualifying as “deal of the year”!

    --And, anyone in the market for a new Portable DVD Player or DVD Recorder may want to know that Best Buy is offering two of the titles in its 2 for $20 sale this week for FREE with the purchase of any such portable player or DVD Recorder. Excludes TIVO. Limit 2 DVDs per customer. No dealers, please. Excludes prior purchases and special order, clearance, demo and open-box items.

    --Circuit City is advertising a FREE EXCLUSIVE “Lord of War” “bullet” ink pen (yes, readers, an ink pen!) with the purchase of the DVD Lord of War at their store. In-store only. While supplies last. Minimum 10 per store.

    --A couple of honorable mentions for CC include a two pack of Carlito’s Way and Carlito’s Way: Rise to Power for just $17.99. CC is also including the recent release of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 Gift Set in its $9.99 sale this week.

    --Target is offering one of its FREE $5 GiftCards with the purchase of All Souls Day. No rain checks.

    Thanks for the roundup. After a monster week last week though, I see nothing for me. Give the ole MasterCard a breather.

    Bill: I was thinking pretty much the same as you. Not much this week except maybe some films from this past year and a couple of TV sets of interest for people. Nothing for me. But then Ryan shows up with a wish list a couple yards long! [​IMG]

    Thanks as usual.

    Mary Tyler Moore and (dependent on improved PQ), Good Morning Vietnam.

    Be forewarned that it's a pan & scan monstrosity.

    Hmmm, thought this was going to be a light week, but I'm looking at:

    Lord Of War SE (one of 2 excellent but little-seen Nicolas Cage films from last fall)
    Junebug (Roger Ebert's been raving about this one for quite a while, so I have to check it out)
    MTM S3
    Doogie S3

    Plus there's a number of titles in BB's 2 for $20 list that I've been waiting to pick up when they hit the $10 level.

    Crap...

    Thanks, gents! Definitely getting Adventures Of Superman: Season 2 and Mary Tyler Moore Show: Season 3. I will probably get around to Doogie Howser, MD: Season 3 eventually, but not this week.

    Anyone who has a Fred Meyer near them might want to check out their ads. In it is a $3 off coupon good on any dvd over $14.99. I plan to use it on Lord of War SE and get it for $16.99. Will scan in the coupon later today if somone wants me to.

    Except possibly for the Lord of the Rings Extend Cut deal (I sold my copy originally to get the big box, but never bother to try to get it), I will probably get nothing this week. Thanks anyway.
