    Thanks, David! I didn't see Oh God! in either the CC or BB circulars, so you've saved me two trips!

    Thanks for the reminder for Big Wednesday. I really have been waiting for this movie. It has some of the greatest surfing scenes in a movie.

    Enough space this week for me to go back to Costco and pick up the TNG set I didn't buy last week. Thanks as always.

    That's not the Criterion version of Tenenbaums, is it?

    as far as I know there is only one version of royal tennnenbaums and it is the criterion, and for 16.99 it is a steal!

    There is only version of Tenenbaums: it is a joint release between Criterion & Buena Vista.

    At $16.99 I can't go wrong with Criterion's The Royal Tenenbaums! My first DVD purchase in three weeks! Damn, what self control! I guess spending a grand on an acoustic guitar will do that to a person... [​IMG]
    Thanks again, David!

    I'm likin' the BestBuy offer of Tenenbaums and Rushmore together at $5 off! Haven't seen either movie, but I'm thinking sight unseen might just be the way to go! I know my local BB has a couple copies of Rushmore (CC) on hand. Hope they're still there on Tuesday!

    Might as well mention that there is a "$2 off any regularly-priced DVD" coupon in a Warcraft III promotional coupon book at Best Buy right now (if your store has any of those left is another matter).

    Anyway, you could use that coupon and take The Royal Tenenbaums all the way down to $14.99, which is quite a deal.

    And I know that technically, TRT isn't "regularly-priced" at $16.99, but they've run these types of coupons before, and usually there's not a problem using them on a sale/new-release DVD.

    Had my first experience with BJ's Wholesale Club today. Overall, I wasn't greatly impressed with their DVD prices (as compared to other warehouse clubs), but they did have a good selection and there were some good buys to be had:
    Star Trek TNG - Season Boxes $89.99
    Pearl Harbor Vista Series $25.99
    Harry Potter $16.99
    Buffy The Vampire Slayer - Season One $27.99
    Gosford Park $17.99
    Guilty Pleasure: I'd been searching for months at virtually every retailer for "Outrageous Fortune." I knew it was in print, but no one seems to stock it. BJ's had a whole box. [​IMG]

    Sweet deal on Royal Tenenbaums, then. Thanks again, Dave.
    Let me know when PCU comes out. [​IMG]

    FYI: If you order 2+ DVDs from circuitcity.com, it's free shipping.

    Doh! I figured there wouldn't be a good B&M price on Tenenbaums, so I ordered it online, and it's already shipped. I wish I had waited, I would've taken advantage of the Tenenbaums & Rushmore deal at Best Buy.

    Does the Rushmore deal include the Criterion release?

    At my store, the Criterion Rushmore is all we've had for months and months. It's probably been at least a year, year-and-a-half since I've seen a copy of the original (crappy) Rushmore at my store.

    The Criterion version should certainly qualify for the $5 off offer. . .

    Although I too would have liked pricing on Impostor (for David's info it's a sci-fi flick with Gary Sinise Madeline Stowe and Vincent D'Onofrio that's supposedly based on a Philip K. Dick - aka the writer upon whose work Blade Runner and Minority Report are based - short story) it's no biggie that he missed it (it was barely in theaters in January). Retail is a hefty $29.95 and Buena Vista has a minimum advertised price of $19.95 on it (that is if the seller wants Disney to help pay for the ad). I'd try Wal-Mart and the warehouse clubs first for the best brick & mortar deals.
