    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.
    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, PLEASE 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, Circuit City is still out of business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their prices anyway).

    I preordered Yellow Submarine from Amazon when they had it listed for $16.99. Their current price is a little too high.
    Otherwise, it's The Sting (cheap edition) and maybe some Universal catalog titles.
    Thanks as always for the update!

    Already printed out the $5 coupon for John Carter...so it looks like Target is going to get that business this week. I may also pick up a season or two of Smallville on BD, but we'll see. Lots of major expenses coming up fast and I need to be smart about this kind of stuff.

    Thanks, as always, Mike!

    John Carter looks like a fun rental...that's it for me!

    Thanks, Mike, for all the work you put into this every week....I still check it religiously even though my DVD buying had dropped to practically nothing!

    I hope to have the Act of Valor review up this evening. Don't know which of Fox's other releases scheduled for this week (both TV and movie titles) will be sent. They've been erratic lately.

    Thanks as always for the RoundUp, Mike.

    I'll definitely pick up Breaking Bad: Season Four this week. It should (but won't) win the Emmy this year. And some point, I'll grab Curb Your Enthusiasm: Season Eight.
    Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

    Wal-Mart had an advertisement by the front door which stated that any Disney blu-ray priced $12.99 and above would be $10 off with the purchase of any John Carter Blu-ray combo pack when it is released. Same deal I think at Toys are us.

    This is what I'll be jumping on. I've been looking for an excuse to obtain "Lion King 1 1/2" on BD.

    The Disney Store doesn't appear to have any special pre-order deal on John Carter ($24.99 for the 2-disc and $32.99 for the 4-disc), but they are already offering a pre-order deal on Cinderella, which doesn't come out until October! The price is $24.99 and you get a lithograph set and the usual $10/ $20 coupon toward a future purchase. I suppose there's a decent chance of a DMR coupon on that closer to the release date.
    Apparently, Best Buy also has a store-exclusive bonus disc with the John Carter 4-disc edition, but of course there's no indication yet of what's on it. If anyone finds out, please post.

    Mike, my review of Falling Skies can be found here.

    It looks like Amazon has dropped the price to $22.99!

    The Disney $10 off deal at Walmart seems to be delivered via a check of some sort inside the "John Carter" package. So I don't think you can get the $10 discount off another Disney title within the same purchase.
    Walmart also seems to be selling four different variations of "Act of Valor." Not sure if this is the same at other retailers (prices approximate from memory, and may vary depending on local retail competition):
    $14.96 SD-DVD bare bones
    $19.96 SD-DVD with extras
    $19.96 Blu-ray single disc
    $24.96 Blu-ray/DVD combo pack

    Just got home from Best Buy where I saw several things of interest that are on sale. If you're in the store (I'd guess online, too, but for some reason I hardly ever deal with BB online -- I like what little in-store experience we have left), pay attention to the displays touted as Father's Day ideas.

    For instance, I picked up The Magnificent Seven Collection for $20 which they have priced normally at $55. And Twelve O'Clock High - their regular price $25, sale price $8. (Both on Blu-ray.)

    They also have a display rack of various Blu-ray digibooks (Malcolm X, Unforgiven, Clockwork Orange, The Color Purple, and more) for $15 each, normally priced at $30 or higher.

    Swung by Target for John Carter 3D. Shock of shocks, they were out. I need to print the ad and then go to BB for the price match and get the coupon applied, I guess.

    Best Buy will price-match Target?
