    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.


    The Specials

    **BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Wolf Creek is available in both rated and unrated versions...get the one that’s right for you!

    --After several weeks where prices, for the most part, had been pretty consistent…they are all over the place this week…ranging wildly on some titles from Amazon to BB to CC to Target.

    --To start things off this week, BB is still working a deal on last week’s big release, Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Buy CoN: TlTWaTW and buy any Disney “Best Pals” title for just $4.99 (regularly $9.99 apiece). Offer includes Best Pals: Mickey & Minnie, Best Pals, Donald & Daisy, and Best pals: Mickey & Pluto. Must be purchased on same receipt.

    --Best Buy is advertising FREE BB EXCLUSIVE MotherLoad disc on-pack with it’s copies of Dave Attell’s Insomniac Tour/Uncensored ($12.99). Minimum 6 per store. No rainchecks.

    --Best Buy is also advertising that you can save $10, instantly, when you buy any TWO of the following three Disney titles: The Greatest Game Ever Played, Chicken Little, Pooh’s Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin. Must be purchased on same receipt.

    --Best Buy, this week, is advertising $12 in BONUS MOVIE CASH with its copies of the new release of Mission Impossible ($12.99). Included on-pack to see Mission Impossible 3 in theaters 5/5/06. Minimum 12 per store. No rainchecks. In a rather confusing piece of advertising, Best Buy also has printed under the picture of the MI cover the following: Also available: Mission Impossible Collector’s Set…$17.99. Movie cash minimum 3 per store. No rainchecks. That makes me think that the Collector’s set—which includes both MI & MI:2—also has the movie cash…but that there is a guaranteed minimum of just three per store.

    --Best Buy is also having a deal on season sets of In Living Color. Save $12, instantly, when you buy any TWO seasons of In Living Color. Or, save $25 when you buy any THREE seasons. Must be purchased on same receipt. In Living Color: Season 5 = $26.99. In Living Color: Seasons 1 thru 4 = $29.99 apiece.

    --Circuit City has an EXCLUSIVE FREE “BEANIE HAT” available with its copies of Fun With Dick and Jane. (To me, it looks like a wool winter cap with the “Fun With Dick and Jane” logo on it.) While supplies last. Minimum 25 per store.

    --Circuit City is also has the exact same deal as BB on the movie cash with their copies of the new release of Mission Impossible ($12.99) and the MI Special Collector’s Edition ($16.99). $12 value. In theaters (Mission Impossible 3) 5-5-06. Valid 5-5-06 thru 5-14-06.

    --Circuit City also has deals on seaon sets of In Living Color. Buy In Living Color: Season 5 ($27.99) and get ANY OTHER SEASON for $17.99.

    --Circuit City also has an EXCLUSIVE FREE T-SHIRT with its copies of Wolf Creek. While supplies last. Minimum 10 per store.

    --CC is also offering free Raisinets, Whoppers or Skittles with the purchase of Bratz: Genie Magic ($12.99). In- store only.

    --Target is proud to repeat their usual FREE $5 GiftCard offer this week with three select titles: In Living Color: Season 5 ($27.99), Bob Newhart Show: Season 3 ($24.99) and Merv Griffin: 40 Most Interesting People… ($24.99). Quantities limited; no rainchecks.

    I wish people would wait a few minutes until I add the older titles on sale just to keep the info close together at the top of the page.

    Thanks, Mike and Patrick. Nothing new this week, but I'll probably pick up Family Guy vol. 3 at Target for that $20 price.

    You once nuked my post #2 so you could list your info. Greg's isn't worthy of being deleted too?

    Nothing for me this week as I have to write checks to Uncle Sam and Crazy Cousin Vermont. [​IMG]

    Bob Newhart S3 at Target for me. Wolf Creek is a definite rental for me. Otherwise, what a slow week! Mike, I have a feeling Target will have some other new releases available on Tuesday (the Disney sets I would guess) and I will post prices as soon as I see them.

    I'm going through withdrawal not having that "inside info" any more!

    Thanks for the roundup Mike like every week. I had to post before going to bed tonight...even so there is nothing this week for me. Oh well, I can get Tetris DS or something instead.

    Just the MI/MI2 Collectors Set at CC with a pm of either BB or Target when I find out their price. CC has a horrible price on it at $24.99 but all the more to 110% pm it with. That'd knock BB's $17.99 down to $17.29 + tax. Glad I held off on rebuying both after losing them in Hurricane Charley.

    That's better than having to pm it. I was wondering about that as I'd seen $16.99 as the price on a couple other sites that post prices a lot earlier.

    circuitcity.com lists the MI/MI2 COLLECTOR'S SET at $12.99. There's no mention of the movie cash and the MI2 looks like the one-disc edition and not the two disc. Think I'll try ordering this anyway on the assumption that the movie cash will be there and that if I decide I really need the MI2 SE, I'll pick it up later and sell the single disc edition.

    Thanks for the Round-Up.

    The Laurel & Hardy set (FOX) is on its way to me as we speak. I can see me picking up Newhart S3 as well.

    For those interested in the Merv set, Sam's Club is selling it for $20.88 (about a dime cheaper than Costco). The packaging looks very nice although I was a bit surprised to see ALPHA as the distributor.
