    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.

    "LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means 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, 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, 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, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

    Me, too.

    The other "must buy" title for me this week is the Best Buy exclusive, The Classic Sci-Fi Ultimate Collection Volume 2, scheduled for a 9/11 release, but I don't see it listed in their circular. Does anyone know if it has been delayed or, worse yet, cancelled?

    Someone over at DVDTalk who works for BB said they got the shipment in. Course another guy said they didnt get many copies for their store. But it seems to be real.

    What the FREAK, Mike?? You can't handle a simple task like getting the RoundUp in on time?!?!? [​IMG]


    Totally kidding. Even though I rarely buy DVDs anymore, I never miss the RU. Just wanted you and Patrick know how much your efforts are appreciated by the silent masses.

    Keep up the good work!

    Both CC and BB have them listed @ $34.99 each. This is the online price, but I'm not really expecting it to be any different in-store.

    Since these titles weren't released in 2006 or 2007, virtually no one on the planet has ever heard of them. (Of course, I'm assuming this is the mindset of the people who create the weekly ads.)

    Marty...I'm glad you pointed this out. I planned to include that in the RoundUp as one of those pricing quirks I run across on occasion...but you did it for me!

    Maybe that will end up being the store price! (We can always hope!)

    ====================================

    BTW, the RoundUp is, obviously now posted up in Post #1. Thanks to everyone for their patience. As I explained originally, I was not near a computer at my usual posting time...and then I had one of those 'life gets in the way of things" moments early Sunday morning. But, everything is good and here's the RoundUp! [​IMG]

    Thanks as always, Mike & Pat, for the Roundup!!

    I guess we should thank the studios for the almost total lack of HD releases this week. Gives us a bit of a respite before the HD storm surge starting next week...

    I'm a little confused why the TEN Midnite Movie double-features from Fox/MGM aren't listed here. A lot of people have been waiting for these for a LONG time.
