    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).

    Dang! It's 7am and I'm the first one responding! Another REALLY weak week, and a great time to catch up on stuff I've bought but haven't watched yet.

    BTW, Happy Father's Day Mike (and all the other dads out there)!

    Thanks for the RoundUp, Mike and Patrick!

    I was hoping to pick up a TV on DVD set or two for 50% off today during the Best Buy one day sale, but if the online list is all there is to choose from, then that won't be happening. Unless you are in the market for Smallville, Lost, Gossip Girl and the Seinfeld refrigerator case, it does not appear to be much of a sale. And, as Mike pointed out, no Blu-ray. Bah... I should have known better.

    Thanks for the roundup. Nothing for me. I won't blind buy Inkheart or Pink Panther 2 since I haven't heard anything good about either. Saving a lot of money these last few weeks.

    Nothing for me either (which isn't a bad thing since I spent a good chunk of money last week) but thanks for the prices, guys! [​IMG]

    It has been a fairly quiet summer so far.

    Fred Meyer is offering another oddball special.

    With purchase of Confessions of a Shopaholic, they throw in a free Patty Reed Totebag and some Jolly Time popcorn.

    I checked out the TV on DVD sale at Best Buy, but it looked like they had the same titles on sale as online (or, maybe even a few less.) Total bust IMO. On the plus side, I snagged the Blu-ray versions of How The West Was Won and The Matrix for $14.99 each, so the trip wasn't a waste after all. I looked for the Beetlejuice Blu too, but they didn't have any on the shelves. I may check back later in the week.

    Amadeus and/or The Brave One are possibilities, but probably not. A good slow week...the wallet likes that. Thanks Mike!

    Just Last Year at Marienbad on Blu for me. Seeing how I made $155 on the DVD I sold this time last I'm more than happy to get a Criterion.

    HTWWW on Blu for $14.99. Sold. Finally.

    Unfortunately I won't be able to watch it right away because the blu ray lens in my PS3 died over the weekend.

    I'm very psyched to see Waltz With Bashir -- as soon as the price of the BD drops to about half what it is now!

    Nothing new for me, but made out on catalog titles Amadeus, Lethal Weapon 2 and Enter the Dragon at Best Buy. Just a note, your local stores may have unadvertised $9.99 specials, as the LW2 BD wasn't advertised in the flyer, but was marked down in the store.

    Going back today to see if they have HTWWW for $15 and also to buy an iPhone holster.

    Thanks as always to Mike and Patrick!
