    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.

    Damn! I was hoping someone would have a sale on The Shield S1-S4 to go along with the season 5 release. The first disc of my S4 set is no good anymore, and I wanted to replace it.

    Would love to get my hands on Children of Men and New Adventures of He-Man. Finances aren't going to let me, unfortunately.

    Sadly, no mention in any of BB/Target/CC ads of Mary Hartman... I'll check out Circuit City to see if they actually have one in stock. Last week the local Best Buy didn't have a single copy of Maude -- had to go to Circuit City where they had two. And the studios wonder why sales are down...?

    Also, I want The Shield V and The Jeffersons Season VI.

    Definately Children of Men. Still haven't decided on Rocky B or Blood Diamond. They might be rentals. Oh, and I missed Justice League Unlimited from last week as well. I was working the overnight shift and Besr Buy's hours were not conducive to mine!

    As always, thanks guys!

    For me -
    Shirley Temple Collection vol.5 I will likely have to order this one online. I had to order the previous volume since no one was carrying it. When I actually asked about it, the store clerk said they sent them all back since no one was buying them - two days after it was released! Their loss
    Happy Feet l'll get this at Target for the bonus DVD

    Also Midsomer Murders vol.8
    MSRP $39.95
    Amazon.com $29.99
    DDD $25.99
    BestBuy.com $29.99
    CirciruitCity.com $34.99
