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! American Pie Presents: Beta House AND Eastern Promises are available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the right one! As is their want, the folks who bring us the delightful American Pie movies are presenting us with a rather complicated landscape. Beta House is being released in an OAR unrated version, an MAR rated version, and an MAR unrated version. Also, even though I had included Rush Hour 3 in last week’s RoundUp, it’s back again this week, since the stores have a number of promotions on the title. Best Buy’s flyer says their DVD prices in this flyer will become effective December 26 (but I suspect catalog titles will be effective December 23. Circuit City’s flyer says new releases will be available 12-26-07 (which makes sense seeing as how their stores will be closed 12-25!), and Target says ALL the sales prices in their flyer (not just DVD prices) will take effect December 26. --Best Buy wants you to save $5 this week by pairing up a number of different titles! --Save $5 @ Best Buy when you buy BOTH Rush Hour 3 AND Robin B Hood on DVD.
