    (CC) after a title = New release in the Criterion Collection.

    Individual Titles in the Collections Listed Above:

    Essential Art House: Kurosawa Collection (DVD): Hidden Fortress, Ikiru, Throne of Blood.

    The Magnificent Seven Collection (Blu-ray): The Magnificent Seven, Return of the Seven, Guns of the Magnificent Seven, The Magnificent Seven Ride!.

    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).

    Thanks for the roundup. I'll be getting the 5 disc POTC at BB with the coupon. It's $1 less than the 2 disc combo & you get the exclusive 6th disc. I've pre sold my 3D & digital copies & will end up making money to own it (since I hate 3D & have no use for digital copies). Plus you get 75 more Disney Movie Rewards points.

    Batman: Year One for sure and most likely X Files Season 1. I'm a sucker for cheap season sets and I know it's one of the shows on my partner's list to watch when he gets out here permanently in a month. Thanks Mike!

    Will borrow The Captains from my local library, with purchase if I like well enough. I'd buy immediately if it were on Blu.

    I'll be picking up Red State Blu-ray this week and since my birthday is coming soon, I'll save $40 and get someone to buy me Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Thanks for the prices! :)

    So it looks like all nine seasons of X Files are 14.99...but none are available for in store pickup. Interesting.

    Not unless someone manually makes their own and posts it.


    This list seems to change weekly. I looked at it last week, and found all 4 die hards, hot tub time machine, old school, and tropic thunder for $9.99 which made them each $4.99 after trade in.


    I jumped on getting all four die hards for $20, and planned on coming back for the three comedies.


    I just looked at the list again, and every movie I listed above is now priced at $14.99. This effectively nullifies the discount, so you would be giving them your dvd for nothing in return.


    Buyer beware.

    I traded in Pulp Fiction, Office Space, and The Blues Brothers for The Blues Brothers, The Big Lebowski (another HD-DVD off the upgrade list), and Good Will Hunting. Also picked up the big Star Wars box and Portal 2 with some gift cards I had been saving for a rainy day. It looks like Christmas morning in here.

    It is unfortunate that BB.com won't price match Amazon for the POTC Box. With my $75 RZ coupon that would make it perfect. So guess it will be Star Wars: The Clone Wars 3. Thanks for the prices Mike!

    Do I understand correctly that I can bring in ANY commercially produced (non-porn) DVD and get $5.00 off any title from that website list? It doesn't have to be the same title on DVD as I'm buying on Blu-ray? And is it an additional $5.00 off the sale prices posted on the website? If so, that's a pretty incredible deal, bringing something like The Blues Brothers, which is currently $20 at Amazon, down to under $10.

    Yes Jeff, that is correct. I traded in 3 random titles and got Blues Brothers, Animal House and Forrest Gump for $9.99 each. . It does have to be a BD on their list, but there are about 150 to choose from. I asked if I could trade a 4th title for Stripes, but since Stripes isn't on that list, it would not have been accepted.

    Thank you, David. Some great deals to be had. I'll be hanging on to my Criterion Straw Dogs, but for five bucks, I'll happily pick up the new Blu-ray too.

    I don't have a phone capable of doing that (it's one of those cheapie "pay-as-you-go" models).
