    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.
    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, PLEASE 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, Circuit City is still out of business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their prices anyway).

    I've got Batman: TDKR II coming from Amazon. Best part is that they keep price matching and bringing the price down. Meaning, out of a $100 gift card, I've scored both an ice cream maker and this movie...with about $2 left over.

    I made coconut ice cream, Mike. A week before the doctor told me not to have dairy for a week. And I made so much, there's still some left in the freezer. I need to eat more ice cream...

    I was going to wait on Downton Abbey until it was cheaper but since I've got a $5 Reward Zone coupon and the $5 coupon upgrade coupon, I'll probably pick it up. Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    The upgrade and save doesn't excite me like it used to. The Best Buys near me are down to an almost bare bones, new release only (almost) selection of blu-rays.

    Best Buy still has one or two more titles that I plan to pick up but I'm sorta in the same boat. There's probably a dozen or so older discs that I'd like to buy but BB doesn't carry them so that takes them off the table. That being said, the program did enable to get rid of some DVDs that I couldn't sell or even give away so even if I never take advantage of the program again, I'll always be happy that Best Buy gave me a $5 trade-in when I couldn't get a penny for them anywhere else.

    I think it's a new clean-up/restoration but for me if there are no new extras I'm not really interested
