    Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from various internet resources! I have not seen a single flyer yet with my own eyes. All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. There is no way for me to guarantee that these prices are accurate as the stores do not wish for their promotions to be known far in advance of the black Friday sales.

    I have only included prices for the titles on which I could find information. There may be more deals to be had out there.

    And, I can’t emphasize this enough...Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

    I will confirm the above prices much later this morning after I’ve had a chance to get some decent rest, put on my comfy slippers, trudge out to get my morning paper, put my two dogs outside, think about how much food I’m going to eat today, and then review the Black Friday ads. I may, though, check the sports section first for any hot stove news with the Red Sox.

    Mike,

    Thanks so much!
    Made my night even better.
    Wonder what those 4.99 DVDs are. Guess I'll know soon enough.

    Don't forget that BJ's Godfather/Indiana Jones deal for - well, I'll amend it when I find the coupon.

    Happy Thanksgiving,

    Eric Larsen

    (About your request in the Mary Poppins thread -
    there's supposed to be a fixed up Sound of Music coming out next year.)

    Just like last year when EVERYONE seemed to have "Chicago" and "Lion King" at rock bottom prices for the Black Friday sales, it looks like the studios are offering good deals on select titles this year. I would guess that most of those are in the $8.88 selection at Target ("Man on Fire" and "Day After Tomorrow" are, IIRC)

    Mike,

    Patrick's post came in while I was looking for that coupon.

    Do a search for Rodger's and Hammerstein SE's in 2005.

    When I was picking up Live Aid at Target last week (!!!), I noticed that they had the Vacation set for about $32.99, the Superman set for $34.99 (Vacation may have been $34.99 too, I'm not sure), and the three Austin Powers together for $22.99. As there was no special sales tag, I assume that they may still be available for those prices.

    Now if there was only a deal for that Terminal set..maybe by Christmas,

    Eric

    Target's South Park sale is for Volumes 1 and 2, but not 3 - I made a mistake in my now closed thread.

    Great prices! I wish I had more money. I only have a total of 15 to spend. I will probably pick up Mulan, and Pay it Forward, since my current copy pixelates badly. Thanks for the Roundup.

    Wow, nice deals for a devious day. I would get some of these stuff, but my selection is controlled by the Powers That Be, and I don't mean those people from Angel. [​IMG] Well I still can pick what I want, but it not offically mine until the 25th.

    John, FWIW, the 24 Season 1 DVD set for $12.99 shows up on the front page of my local (Atlanta) Best Buy flyer. It's right next to the Will & Grace season 1 DVD set.

    It looks like Best Buy might be testing their "drive out the lesser customers" plan regionally. Will and Grace stands alone in my flyer. From what I can gather from pre-rumors, there are other bits and pieces missing in mine as well. RTP Area of NC here.

    Pretty much makes me want to sit out BF at Best Buy and stick with Costco, who actually has something to offer me.

    Check out Best Buy's website for their 5 for $25 online sale that's starting today and going on for 3 days! It'll save some hassle tomorrow. The downside with online ordering is that you'll incur shipping charges which could be a deal-breaker.

    I vowed not to brave the crowds this year but with all those TV DVD deals, I may have to. The problem is, I don't think I'll get any shopping done for anyone else but me.

    Shipping charges and sales tax... plus, since Walmart says their $3.88 sale includes other titles, and since almost every title pictured at BB is in Walmart's ad, what do you want to bet that you can pick up most these discs at Walmart and save $1.12 per during that early morning window?

    Mike, you are my freaking idol today. Dude, we're still going to BB first thing tomorrow and then I'm making a beeline to Target. They've got the best price on Simpsons S4, please they have the Scooby stocking I'm in search of for my BF.

    THANK YOU for making every Tuesday and Black Friday that much easier for all of us.

    Happy Turkey Day!!!

    It's all about time and convenience for those who don't want to set foot inside the store and want to order today, but I'll probably check out Circuit City first for those $5 DVDs because they have a wider selection of what I'd want to buy anyway. Best Buy doesn't have much that interest me this year. Sales tax is a non-issue, I expect it from these online stores with local stores in my area. Best Buy will be pretty much last on my list to physically visit on Friday. I expect the store to be picked clean of the 'deals'.

    I fear for my life at Wal-Mart on Friday morning... [​IMG]
