Laurel and Hardy Giftset: The Big Noise, Great Guns, Jitterbugs. 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. The Specials **BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Wolf Creek is available in both rated and unrated versions...get the one that’s right for you! --After several weeks where prices, for the most part, had been pretty consistent…they are all over the place this week…ranging wildly on some titles from Amazon to BB to CC to Target. --To start things off this week, BB is still working a deal on last week’s big release, Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.

In a rather confusing piece of advertising, Best Buy also has printed under the picture of the MI cover the following: Also available: Mission Impossible Collector’s Set…$17.99. Movie cash minimum 3 per store. No rainchecks. That makes me think that the Collector’s set—which includes both MI & MI:2—also has the movie cash…but that there is a guaranteed minimum of just three per store. --Best Buy is also having a deal on season sets of In Living Color.
