    Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed advertisements, the Sunday of the week of release (so as to catch any week-of-release sale prices). All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. If a price is marked "$_N/A_" in the grid, it means that this title is not shown as available on that chain's website or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores!

    $_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that 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 only include the titles I feel like including (or the ones Dave tells me he's looking for ;o)). In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing 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...like Dave & I do! (Mike's SOP)

    Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. Also note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the standard Roundup: they set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is not a way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. When it comes to Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices mentioned at all, just remember that "Your Mileage May Vary".



    --Amazon is still featuring free shipping on orders over $25. Restrictions apply.

    --Best Buy is offering bonus DVDs with Anchorman and Open Water, YMMV on finding them.

    --Best Buy is offering a 2-for-$25 deal if you buy Anchorman and Old School together at the same time.

    --Best Buy is offering a 2-for-$25 deal if you buy Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil DE together at the same time.

    --Best Buy: Save $10 when buying any 2 sets of Sex and the City, save $80 if you buy all 7 sets (each $41.99, except S1 $29.99)

    --Costco: They are offering a Benji 3-pack for $19.99 (included "Benji", "For the Love of Benji" and "Benji: Off the Leash")

    (Thanks for putting up with a fill-in effort as I hold down the fort for Mike. I'll try to fill in more prices later as I get them, but doing this on a dial-up connection is murder!)

    On the DVD's for $10 at Target is it only for The Girl Next Door R version or both R and Unrated? I would think so since it's pretty much the same movie. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

    This is the box set with the double-disc Patton isn't it? I might have to renew that membership now . . . besided the fact we're going to need some more toilet paper next week anyway . . .

    Hi, Patrick. Good work for a dial-up! I'm glad to see you're helping Mike to carry on my legacy of the Roundup. Thanks!

    I don't have time today to go look up prices, but maybe some of the other readers can help. Here are just a few things that I would suggest should be added to the list (one movie for kids and a handful of fairly popular TV stuff):

    Battlestar Galactica (03) - MiniSeries
    Benji: Off the Leash
    Tour of Duty - S2
    Twilight Zone (59) - S1 Definitive Ed.
    Twilight Zone (85) - S1


    I don't chime in here often enough and say it, but I DO look at the Roundups every week, and Mike's done a great job all along. Patrick's done well with the fill-ins, too. Thanks for keeping it up and helping ME to save money! [​IMG]

    Nice job on the Roundup, Patrick. Just one note. You have Simpsons S5 listed in the BB $29.99 section of your 2nd post, but it's actually coming up at $39.99 on the site (usually the same price as in-store). It is pictured between a $29.99 Seinfeld set and a $39.99 South Park set in the ad so either price could be correct. But it could also be a regional thing: $29.99 some places, $39.99 elsewhere so YMMV on that one.

    simpsons shows 29.99 in the ad for philly area i havent checked online to see the price(best buy).
    wrong.
    now i see that the "low price" is closer
    to the 39.99 south park then to the 29.99 seinfeld.

    Hope you keep the fort up while Mike is out of commersion, Patrick. As for me...dunno, might get Archor Man, but my luck with purchasing the stuff I metion on this thread is generally poor at times. Oh well, good luck with the roundup for the next couple of weeks.

    Thanks for filling in, Patrick.

    Lots of great deals this week at Best Buy and Costco. I guess that $50 GC for Best Buy that I got yesterday won't stay in my possession too long. [​IMG]

    I'll probably hold off adding more catalogue titles until Monday night when I get back because dial-up is just too darn sloooooowwwwww!!!

    I did update the 2nd post in this thread with the Best Buy 50% 1st season box set sale, here's the link in case folks miss it.

    Also, Amazon is getting ready to offer the same good deals, or better on Fox 1st season sets as well, with X-Files season 1 getting down to $34.99, it would seem.

    Is the Anchorman set with the Wake Up Ron Burgandy the 2-disc set? (And could they have made our purchasing decisions any more difficult? Oh, wait, not sending anything out for review did it).

    Freaking crime that The Twilight Zone is "too obscure" to list in the circulars. Those bastards. That was what I was looking forward to seeing the round-up for. I really hope I can actually get a copy at a B&M (without having to resort to Borders prices, that is).
