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...but it COULD still be in-stores!

    David, truly appreciate the thread every week. Maybe I'll have to bite on Joy Ride for $15.99

    The complete Paramount price reductions include:

    King Kong (1976)

    American Gigolo

    Chinatown

    Coming to America

    Runaway Bride

    Primal Fear

    Truman Show

    A Simple Plan

    Next Best Thing

    Snake Eyes

    Angela's Ashes

    The Two Jakes

    The Presidio

    They are all $13.56 over at DDD. So I finally picked up Chinatown...

    Another interesting bargain is Say Anything for $11.99 at Circuit City. Very unusual to see a good sale price on a movie that premiered a week ago. And to think I was getting a great deal pre-ordering for $13.99.

    Another person who's been looking at your posts for awhile now and appreciate it very much. Keep up the good work!!

    Doesn't seems like BB prices are up there nowadays and no longer offer bargains like they used to?

    Thanks again.

    Chad, thanks for the info! Where did you get that from, if I might ask?

    In any case, it's welcome. I can finally get Coming to America...yay!

    Target has some nice deals this week. I picked up A Few Good Men SE for $12.99. They also had The Patriot & Men In Black at that price. There were a few more, just can't recall them right now.

    Also worth noting that Best Buy has "Mel-o-Vison" deals going on: Braveheart for $17.99, and for $12.99 each is The Patriot, What Women Want (is the answer "Mel"? [​IMG] ), Ransom, and Lethal Weapon 4.

    Just so you know, my local (Kansas City area) CC always has higher prices than you list. I've given up even entering their store, but I just might have to give them a call with prices like that.

    David if you're looking on getting *American Gigolo* and you move quik there are still a few copies left at Overstock.com at 50 % off the latest SRP markdown, $9.99, and they offer low cost media mail shipping.
