    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 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 only include the titles I feel like including (or the ones Dave tells me he's looking for ;o)). 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. 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...like Dave & I do!

    Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. Also note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the standard Roundup: they set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is not a way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. When it comes to Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices mentioned at all, just remember that "Your Mileage May Vary".


    **BE CAREFUL! Hidalgo is available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one!!!

    --Amazon is still featuring free shipping on orders over $25. Restrictions apply.

    --Best Buy and Circuit City and Target are ALL advertising a bonus movie ticket with their “on pack” of The Princess Diaries SE for The Princess Diaries 2. In theaters August 11. Value up to $7[/size=1]

    --Best Buy is also advertising 20% off all Anime DVDs this week.

    Wish I could help out but some f#%ker stole my Sunday paper this morning! We were out late at a concert and I normally wake up at 9am on Sundays, but today wasn't up and about until nearly noon, so the paper sat outside our apt. and I'm sure someone helped themselves to it. [​IMG]

    The Gidget Collection should not be listed, right? As it has been confirmed to be MAR.

    Also, has anyone found out what the verdict is on Darby O'Gill?

    Kenneth: Should I ask which parts of you want to see it? [​IMG]

    Also, is that a new word you've coined?

    garnder (GARN-der) adv. 1.)someone who wants to take a gander at Jennifer Garner.

    Looking into this Gidget situation.....
