    Permesso?

    [c][​IMG][/c]

    Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed advertisements, the Sunday of the week of release (so as to catch any week-of-release sale prices). All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. If a price is marked "$_N/A_" in the grid, it means that this title is not shown as available on that chain's website or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores!

    $_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that I could not locate a definate 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 only include the titles I feel like including. In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing every DVD. I have a lovely wife and a five-year-old son I'd rather spend time with. 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...like I do!

    Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

    * Non-OAR discs are left off the Roundup, whenever they've been identified in advance. Example: Gator, White Lightning, Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins, Eve of Destruction, Catch the Heat, Revenge of the Ninja, Rage of Honor. Gee...thanks, MGM. [​IMG]

    * Best Buy has a deal with Friends Season sets: Buy any 2 and save $10. Buy 3 and save $25. Buy all 4 and save $40. Instantly.

    * Circuit City simply says, "Save $10 instantly with purchase of Season 4 & any of Season 1, 2 or 3. Must be purchased on same receipt. Available In-store only. See store for details."

    * Best Buy and Circuit City both have the same deal, where you can buy both Shanghai Nights and Shanghai Noon on the same transaction for just $25.

    As always, thanks Dave!

    Looks like I just might have to order the Billy Wilder Collection from Amazon. Unless someone knows a better deal somewhere...

    Shanghai Knights for me (already had Shanghai Noon).

    I wonder if Target's "Low Price" will equal Best Buy's...Target's closer [​IMG]

    Thanks for the effort, Dave

    Thanks for the roundup, Dave!

    (I never post, but I read the roundup every week, and find lots of good info in the weekly thread.)

    Any deals on "May?"

    I've heard great things and am going to make a blind purchase. It was supposed to be released this week.

    According to the "live" currency converter at XE.com, DVDSoon (Canadian e-tailer) is selling the Billy Wilder Collection for $64.56 in U.S. dollars ($88.98 Canadian). Free shipping.

    Nuttin' for me either this week, Dave.

    But you know what I was just thinking? How cool it is that I will know--for the rest of my life, probably--that Circuit City doesn't guarantee their prices in Hawaii! [​IMG]

    Some day, that just might be useful information for me! Maybe I'll win a bar bet! [​IMG]

    Great job as always! [​IMG]

    I might pick up Sailor Moon: Season One.

    Anime on the Weekly Roundup? And subbed-only at that! Who would have thunk it? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Hey with the release of Gods and Generals I'm reminded... Is there any news of a re-release of Gettysburg? Maybe with better sound. =)

    It's amazing what you can find by looking. I found an answer to my question on thedigitalbits site where they have the HTF WB chat transcript....

    Gettysburg was pulled because of leagal issues. That sucks, but at least I've got the LD. Just wish I had the DVD...
