    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.

    Goblet of Fire CE is a must for me!

    Anyone have details on the Free Enterprise SE? I've seen the movie but don't own it and would like to.

    Thanks Mike & Patrick for the Roundup. HP4 2 disc @ CC with a BB pm for me along with Howl & Totoro (I'm hoping they'll give the same BB $6 discount). Also Shaggy Dog with a BB pm.

    Nothing for this week. I was planning on Flintstones S5, but at those prices it'll have to wait for a sale or price drop.

    Amazon update on Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire!

    I just clicked on the pre-order link on the Amazon home page, and it took me to a listing for the two-disc collector's edition for $19.96! My order is placed!

    Thanks as usual.

    A very busy week:

    Brady Bunch
    Flintstones
    Harry Potter
    Hogan's Heroes
    The Shaggy D.A.
    The Shaggy Dog
    Tennesse Tuxedo

    Also, if the rumors are true that the unedited original versions are being used, I'll pick up Cosby Show season 2, though I most certainly won't do so until people report back with evidence to that effect.

    I actually read it after Arnie made his post and decided not to pile on since Arnie already brought it up.

    Patrick, thanks for the exclusive heads up on "12 Monkees: Special Edition". I've been dying to see how Micky, Mike, Peter and Davy's antics traveling through time and saving the world with their own brand of pop.[​IMG]

    That and some Fox noir are my only purchases this week. Unless "Monkees" is a typo, in which case it's just noir and something alcoholic to drown out my sorrows.

    Oh great, Harry Potter is a seperate two and one disc release. I hate when that happen, as the two disc special edition always get the shaft pricewise. Well I need to find out the extra on the second disc. If it like the first Harry Potter dvd release's second disc...then no thanks.

    Anyway, thanks for the roundup Mike.

    Don, the three Fox noirs are:

    No Way Out
    House on Telegraph Hill
    Fallen Angel

    Not sure which I'm getting this week. I think BB always sells them at $9.99, so there's no rush. Again, I think.
