    The Disclaimer
     

    Standard disclaimer:All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from theirprinted Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by eachchain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the websiteprice.

    I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week inthe RoundUp.The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well asthose 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'tcomplain! If there is a title not includedin the RoundUp that youwant to see, PLEASE just look it up yourself, and be nice enough topost 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, sothere is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR localWal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. And, Circuit City is still outof business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their pricesanyway).

    I'll take a look at Best Buy to see if they have anything that I can use the upgrade and save deal on but I'm at a point where they don't have much left that I want.

    Thanks for the prcies, Mike! :)

    I wouldn't mind having some of the Olive titles, but they're priced out of my budget for the moment. Looks like they'll go on the birthday/Christmas list!

    Thanks for the RoundUp as always.

    You might want to checkout importcds.com

    The Olive titles are usually below $15 plus shipping. It might take a while for you to receive your order, but they're much cheaper than Amazon. Amazon usually has the titles at 20.97 when first posted on their site, but after a few days they go to around the $25 price.

    Unless I find some catalogue title at BB for U/S, nothing for me this week. There's not a thing that's appealing right now...guess I should go check BB.com to see what's on sale, too.

    As nice as the $5 upgrade-and-save program can be (it's way better, now, than trading in at Amazon or at what's left of the FYE stores -- I'm losing the best one around here as we speak), there are actually very few titles for me to use it on!

    Yeah...I'm looking at BB.com now and I still haven't picked up Lawrence of Arabia, The Town, Gandhi, Veep S1, GI Joe the Movie, Justice League S2 and the new Iron Man movie. All I have to do is see how the prices are gonna stack up next to Amazon and then make sure I have the coin. :cool: So I guess there's *a few* things I could pick up, assuming I can find them in the store...

    DVDPlanet has the Fighting Seabees for $17.70. They beat Amazon's price on all of the Olive Films releases.

    Somehow I also skipped right over the World's Greatest Super Friends release at Target this week. I'll be stopping in this week. One more piece to the Super Friends on DVD puzzle being complete!

    Pickings always seem slim, but I inevitably manage to find something.

    Just a moot point....Best Buy "exclusive" bonus disc with Gangster Squad has a sticker on the packaging that states 30 minutes of bonus content added up to 22 minutes....just saying....
