    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, PLEASE 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, Circuit City is still out of business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their prices anyway).

    You can't beat the $19.99 pre-order price on the 4 disc BD set of UP this week. Its a fantastic movie that looks and sounds great.

    Those interested in "Up" on Blu-ray should also be aware that Disney will have a $10 coupon online on release day. There has been speculation about this on the 'net, but I saw an actual TV spot that will air next week that confirms it.

    disneypixarupcoupon.com will resolve to:
    disney.go.com/disneyvideos/animatedfilms/up/couponoffer/

    This theoretically would allow someone to get both "Up" and "Monsters, Inc." at the $32.98 price point in-store by combining the coupon with the Best Buy offer. If Amazon doesn't charge you tax, the online deal is still better, unless (as noted before) you don't like shopping online or just have to have it right away.

    I also heard of an $8 "Monsters, Inc." coupon from Disney Rewards as well... be interesting if someone got Best Buy to do their deal along with both coupons.

    EDIT: I now have the Rewards coupon from logging in and entering the UPC from my DVD of "Monsters, Inc." Let's see how BB reacts Tuesday morning...

    Sounds great that there will be more deals on release day to fuel the competition. I wonder if Amazon knew that would be coming and decided to cut to the chase w/ their own $10-off combo deal on top of the gradual price drops -- afterall, anyone who preordered the set at higher prices from them was guaranteed the price drops too, and there weren't any other comparable preorder deals around to push Amazon.

    I also wonder though if we wouldn't somehow see another case of the $10-off Snow White deal showing up last minute for this (where previous early-preorder buyers got credited the $10 on their next order of Disney titles) -- I know... wishful thinking.

    Alright, I think I have my Pixar Blu-Ray plan mapped out.

    Go to Best Buy:
    1. Pick up Up, have them price adjust it for their website (19.99) and also get Monsters Inc. with it (18.99 if purchased with Up)
    2. Use both manufacturer's coupons ($8 off Monsters Inc Disney Rewards coupon & $10 off Up Coupon)

    Both Blu-Rays end up working out to $20.98, pre-tax.

    The unknown in all of that is whether your Best Buy will allow price matching and a coupon. Anecdotal experience from several SlickDeal members indicates their stores allow only one or the other. Definitely YMMV, and props to you if you can get it to work -- be sure to tell us how you did it!

    After a tough-on-the-wallet week, I'm relieved that nothing interests me this week.

    Just Up & Monsters, Inc. on BD for me this week. Preordered from Amazon using the Best Value combo deal ( http://www.hometheaterforum.com/forum/thread/294472/monsters-inc-and-up-4-disk-set-twin-pack-now-32-98-shipped-at-amazon-see-post-31 )


    Amazon shipped my order on Friday via UPS Second Day Delivery (Prime Membership), so they will be here on Tuesday. However I won't be watching them right away because Tuesday is 11-10-09 which is the release date of COD: Modern Warfare 2!

    An observation / a question: Why isn't The Accidental Husband being released on BD on Tuesday? I thought that was interesting, especially since it's a Sony movie.


    Thanks as always for the Weekly RoundUp Mike and Patrick. And I too appreciate the BD titles being listed in Blue!

    Up Blu-Ray combo for me. I'm planning to upgrade to HDTV by year's end; this and the Star Trek Blu that the wife is getting me for Christmas should make the perfect inauguration.

    Will rent Accidental Husband.

    What's in the Mamma Mia! gift set?

    When I checked Target.com the Blu-Ray of A Charlie Brown Christmas is ALSO $ 17.99.
    I called my local Target to see if they had it in stock and confirm the price on the Blu-Ray, and they did, indeed, confirm the Blu-Ray version is $17.99.

    When I got there, there was a sale sign on the Blu-Ray as well.

    Looks like I'll be buying Disney/Pixar's 2 disc UP at Best Buy when our new store opens up on Saturday the 14th at 10am & if I can get there early enough to be one of the first 50 customers I'll get a $20 gift card. SO glad that BB moved into the old Circuit City building.

    I'll let you guys know how it goes.
