    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).

    You took the words right out of my mouth, Adam. Incredibles for sure, Potter definitely possibly. The other HP's are $9.99 are BB, so I may finish the collection with them, though I am sorely tempted to wait until Amazon prices matches so I can boycott BB.

    I'll be getting The Incredibles this week. I already have Cars so, fortunately, I won't have to get into a screaming match over coupons. At some point, I'll pick up Dragnet and the Race With The Devil/Dirt Mary, Crazy Larry DVDs and I'm sure an Ultimate Edition of Harry Potter will be released in the future so I'll wait on that one as well.


    Thanks for the prices!

    My wife is the coupon queen. I'll have her make the purchase at Best Buy. It's worth the hassle for $10. besides, the Super Target is right around the corner if there's any problems, although that means paying the additional $10.

    Thanks for the Roundup. Deathly Hallows w/BB bonus disc & Incredibles for me. Got Cars blu ray last year for cheap & already had the SE dvd of it which I combined to make my own homemade "combo pack".

    I am surprised Amazon hasn't taken the bait and lowered their price of the Incredibles on Blu. To Best Buy, I suppose. Thanks for the great work, Mike!

    Looks like I'm going to be at Best Buy when the doors open Friday. Does anyone know if the Best Buy exclusive with the book also has the Best Buy exclusive extra disc with the 65 minutes of bonus content? It'd be worth spending the extra few bucks for the book, but not if I miss out on the additional special features.

    Thanks Mike for the prices this week.

    Buying The Incredibles as a birthday present to me!

    Will wait for the inevitable Harry Potter UE before purchasing.

    (For some reason - Firefox 4 doesn't play well with the in forum editor. But if I post then edit the post it works just fine. Odd indeed.)

    Don't forget the free movie tickets for Cars 2 -- If the Cars re-release is $25, take away $10 for the BB deal and $8 for the DMR coupon, that leaves $7 for a movie ticket coupon that's probably worth $10!


    It's even better after selling or trading the extra copy of Cars. . .


    Say, does anyone know if the Disney Store is running a preorder deal for The Incredibles? They did for Tangled (similar to the ones they've done before, where you get an art print and a coupon for either $10 or $20 off a future purchase).

    The forum editor hasn't worked right going back to the earliest beta versions of Firefox 4. The trick I learned was to open Source mode, click anywhere in the text box, and then go back to the regular editor.

    I called the Disney Store. . .no dice on an Incredibles preorder deal. Also, it looks like the "free" movie ticket coupons are $8.50 in value.
