    You have just said the secret word, Alice. You have just won a trip to the moon! (quote from The Honeymooners)

    [c][​IMG][/c]

    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 definate 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. 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. I have a lovely wife and a five-year-old son I'd rather spend time with. 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 I do!

    Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

    Don't forget the 10% off any Disney DVD in the BB Coming Attractions, which would bring BB's price to ~$14.39. I plan on getting that, along with Friends S5 (using a $2 off Netflix coupon) at Best Buy, and ordering Little House S3 at DDD for ~$31.

    The Weird Al may be worth a rental, along with LB2 (though since I got the first one free, I may eventually buy 2 in the far future).

    A local big box retailer had Big Brother 3 out on Friday, not sure if it's worth it, but I would be first in line for season sets of the Amazing Race and Survivor to replace my VHS copies.

    Oh yeah, and thanks Warner for rewarding those of us who buy Friends on the street date, and don't wait to get them all at once. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Thanks, as always, Dave!

    Finding Nemo's a must! Bet Wal-Mart will end up the place to go.

    Anyone know what the game wal-mart is supposedly including with finding nemo? I've seen advertisements at the front of the store that mentioned a game. Figure it's probably something stupid, but who knows.

    Nemo's also advertised at Ultimate Electronics for $14.95 - not too bad.

    In Sundays coupon sections there is a $5.OO rebate from Orville Redenbacher's after purchasing three popcorn boxes and "Finding Nemo" dvd, not bad if you buy popcorn anyways.

    Thank's for the Roundup Dave! Bogarts for me this week!

    Blockbuster had an ad in the Sunday paper that shows Finding Nemo, and says new dvd $12.99 when you trade in a dvd. I can't find any details, so I'm assuming I can take an old Madacy piece of crap and 'trade it in' and get Finding Nemo for $12.99.

    Careful lads, my local BestBuy has refused to honor the coming attractions coupons when new releases are 'sale priced'. This sucks but they chalk it up to combining 2 different offers (which the coupon states you can't do). So, considering the prices, I'll be going to CC for a free mousepad (hopefully it's the fluid filled one that went out with the screener copies) and do the pricematch with Ultimate Electronics.
