    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.

    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).



    A note about Best Buy prices: When available, I include Best Buy prices on new releases from their Sunday flyer. The rest are taken from bestbuy.com. Often, there will be discrepancies between the flyer and on-line prices. If you plan on buying a high-profile new release title from Best Buy, I advise you to check both prices and act accordingly. You can possibly take advantage of their on-line ordering with in-store pick-up, or get them to match their own on-line price, etc. The price differences can often be substantial.

    --Target has its own EXCLUSIVE BONUS DISC with its copies of The Pacific. Includes War on the Homefront a look at life in the US during WWII. Much like BB, there is no indication if this applies to both DVD and Blu-ray versions, so I'm assuming it is.

    I wonder if BB will be offering a pre-order steelbook offer for the upcoming Fantasia release, as they usually announce it the week the newest Disney title is released.

    Thanks Mike, and ouch...where to begin: Toy Story 3 Combo, Mater's Tall Tales (), Bridge Over the River Kwai, Chitty, Chitty Bang Bang, Highlander, White Christmas. I'll hold off on the Sound of Music for a few weeks, but it is an eventual grab

    I should add I'm interested in the Pacific, but will save that for a good sale next year. I have all the episodes sitting on my DVR unwatched, and I already bought he BD import of Goonies as I didn't need all the "stuff" with it.

    Here's hoping it will happen. I kind of like the "payment plan" concept of being able to spread an expensive Blu-Ray purchase over a few weeks.

    Just Toy Story 3: 4-Disc Combo Pack for me this week.


    Disney Movie Rewards ("DMR") has an $8 off coupon for the Blu-ray Combo Pack. You must be a member of DMR to print the coupon and you can only print 2 coupons. To print the coupon, you will need to install the Bricks / Coupon.com coupon printer applet (or have already used it in the past). The coupon expires 11/8/2010 so act fast if you are going to use it.


    Link: http://www.disneymovierewards.go.com/promotions/special-offers/ts3lptw-coupon


    Several other of this week's Blu-ray releases are going on my want / wish list for future purchase:

    • The Bridge on the River Kwai
    • Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
    • The Sound of Music

    The Bridge on the River Kwai will be mine when it envitably comes up in a sale a few months from now. The Goonies would be a no-brainer if there was a more economically priced bare-bones release along with the collector's edition.

    So as it stands, just The Sound of Music for me. I'll have to make a run to Target right after I get off work and hope for the best. The Target on Central Ave always seems to run out of the good stuff by the time I can make it there. Depending on how I'm feeling Monday night, I might set the alarm clock early Tuesday and head over before work.

    Mike, I'm positively flabbergasted TS3 didn't make it into first position, picture wise.


    Alright, TS3 with the Disney coupon for sure. The Pacific at some point in the future. Same for The Goonies. I think there's a deal for some money off TS1 or TS2 with the purchase of TS3...so I'm in for completing the set. I may finish up my Futurama series since they're on sale at BB; same with Six Feet Under. Some of the Stargate seasons look good cheap, too, but only if they're in the new packaging.

    All together it looks like Best Buy is laying low in catalogue title sales in preparation for Christmas. There's not a ton of stuff on sale this week. Only 150 BD titles and another 150 TV shows on DVD from my admittedly hasty (and sleep-deprived) check. Too bad I can find stuff no matter how slim the pickings get...

    I'll be picking up Toy Story 3 Blu-ray this week and I'll see if I can get someone to get me The Larry Sanders Show for Christmas.


    Thanks for the prices, guys!

    Mike, thanks as always for the stellar work.

    Just pre-ordered Toy Story 3 and Sound of Music combo packs. The Pacific is going to be a Christmas present for Dad, I will wait for one of best buy's half off sales on HBO sets for my own copy. That Goonies price seems pretty high, perhaps a price drop in the future will send that my way.

    Quite a week. I have TS3 and "Let's Spend the Night Together" on order and will be getting the special Target edition of the Sound of Music BD.


    I'll check the reviews to see about whether I want to upgrade to the White Christmas BD.

    Looks like the Toys-R-Us price is $34.99. Not exactly competitive IMO. I think I will bail on my pre-order and get it at Target since I have a $5 gift card I use use, plus the $8 DMR coupon, I'll be looking at $11.99 plus tax versus $21.99 at TRU.


    And, while I'm at Target, I think I'll snag The Sound Of Music Blu, too.

    I thought I saw rumor(s) that the actual TRU price may still end up being closer to the competition even though their recent big book mailing lists it at ~$35. And then, they have other additional deals that might interest some.

    Will have to wait and see I guess...

    FYI, BB's site lists Mater's Tall Tales BD at $19.99 (along w/ the $5-off combo purchase deal w/ TS3 BD)...

    I'll be going for Toy Story 3 (Iron Pack), Highlander, V: Season 1 (Steelbook) and The Pacific on blu. Surprised I'm getting these after last week's expensive list. No Sound of Music for me though.
