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 --Hey, everybody! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! --This is my large economy-size WRU to end up 2012. I've included the meager offerings of the lnext two weeks into one Weekly RoundUp in order to buy myself a week off around the holidays. As always, thanks for all your participation and help this past year and I look forward to keeping things going in 2013. 2013 will be my 10th year compiling these weekly reports! (Dave who?) I started taking care of things the first week of January in 2004. Seems like only yesterday. So, the 'SPECIALS" listed below are for the coming week. I'm not sure if I'll be back next week to update the thread with the specials for the 2nd week...but we'll see. Also, since I put this to bed a little earlier than usual, don't be surprised to see some price changes on the part of Amazon as they go through their usual machinations close to release dates. --Neither Best Buy nor Target is advertising any new release prices in their Sunday flyer for the week after Christmas. --Best Buy is offering the opportunity to see Taken 2 EARLY, via streaming.
