    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).






    The Specials

    --Best Buy has an EXCLUSIVE pairing of the Madagascar 3 3-D Blu release packaged with a "wearable rainbow wig." Best Buy and other retailers have the wig paired with the 2-D Blu release...but Best Buy apparently has an EXCLUSIVE on the wig and 3-D sets together. Wow. That's great.

    --Best Buy also has the first two Madagascar films on Blu for just $9.99 apiece this week. The DVDs of those films are just $4.99.


    --"UPGRADE AND SAVE" is back at Best Buy! Basically, this extremely popular program allows you to bring in a used DVD to your local BB and get a coupon for $5 off ANY Blu-ray $9.99 or higher:


    Quote:


    Bring in your original DVD (no burned copies accepted) with the original case to Customer Service and receive a $5-off coupon valid on any Blu-ray movie priced $9.99 and up. See a Customer Specialist or visit BestBuy.com/upgradeandsave for more details about the Upgrade & Save promotion. Limit 5 coupons per trip for DVD upgrades. A recycling receipt must accompany the coupon at time of redemption. Once you have received your coupon, if you do not find a Blu-ray, you are unable to get your turned-in DVD back. Not valid with any other discount or package. Markdown taken from original price or promotional price. Your original DVD must have been commercially packed and with the original case. Adult content DVDs not accepted. Not valid with any other offer. Valid on in-stock Blu-ray movies only. No cash value. Offer valid through 10/20/12.





    --The following Blu-rays are on sale at Best Buy this week:



    $9.99: Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, The Dictator, The Blindside, Office Space



    $17.99: Intruders, Hangover Part II, Footloose (2011), Horrible Bosses.



    $19.99: The Five-Year Engagement, Snow White and the Huntsman



    $24.99: Prometheus (3-D), Walking Dead: S1

    $34.99: Grimm: S1, Spartacus: S2



    $39.99: Walking Dead: S2



    $44.99: Boardwalk Empire: S1

    --Best Buy Odds and Ends: Free Pumpkin-carving Stencil Kits included with specially-marked Disney DVDs $6.99 and up. In-store only. Min. 2 per store. No rainchecks.

    --At Target this week EXCLUSIVE RELEASES of the DVD & Blu-ray of Mad Men: Season 5. Includes exclsuive The Actor's Studio interview. Quantities limited, no rainchecks.



    --Target is advertising the "wearable wig" with its blu versions of Madagascar 3. Items packaged together. Quantities limited, no rainchecks.



    --Target also has an EXCLUSIVE DVD collection of the three Madagascar films for $24.99.



    --Target is also advertising Disney's Cinderella Blu Combo Pack for $24.99.

    This is another expensive week for me. Thanks Mike, for the update!
     
  6. Guest

    A vendor has Looney Tunes Platinum Collection Vol. 1 new for $11 plus 2.98 shipping. $30 cheaper than anyone else. May be a mistake but its probably worth a try. I already have it or else I would.

    Yup. I've got both A League of Their Own and The Santa Clause on their way to me from Amazon. Two classics. Love them both. Great to see such nice pricing on them both.

    IMHO, the other two Santa Clause movies are just about the worst films ever made. Can't stand them.

    Thanks for another WRU, Mike.
    Since everyone and his mother and grandma have been raving about Moonrise Kingdom -- plus it's Wes Anderson afterall -- guess I'll pick that up along w/ Mad Men S5 using the U&S deal at BB. Still kinda debating about the Prometheus 3D pack -- really wish they included all the extras in the 2D version. Think I'll hold out for better prices on one or two others, eg. League of Their Own, especially since I have a huge backlog of titles to catch up now w/ all sorts of sales looming in these next couple months...

    Is Madagascar 3 Blu-ray going to be $19.99 at Target?
    When I went to Target's website it was a lot more.

    Pete's Dragon is coming from Amazon. Otherwise, that's my movie budget for the week. My copy of The Great Mouse Detective is strangely still not shipped even though I already got ET from the same order. Chances are it'll come in as well this week.

    $29 for Slender Thread - and on Amazon, yet. WTF, Olive??

    A few catalog items for me, but they all get put on the want list. Not just because of price, but because I'm cutting back on first day expenditures. Spreading it out a bit. They'll all come home eventually.

    Sure am glad I already have the Panasonic Avatar!

    I will be getting LT Vol. 2 and A League of Their Own.

    Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike

    Working on The Santa Clause 3-Movie set and should have the review up tonight. Also working on the fifith season of Mad Men, but it depends on what else comes in this week as to when I'll finish it.

    I hope it shows up in your local store, Moe. I decided to go with Amazon for the catalog title. BB is spotty, at best.

    Target online prices seem to rarely match their store prices at least until release day and even then there often is some bizarre mismatches.
    I think the weekly ad has it for $19.99 in store though.
