Where are we going? Anywhere. What are we going to do? Anything. (quote from Valley Girl)

[c]Posted Image[/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.

* BE CAREFUL! Bringing Down The House & What A Girl Wants are available in both Widescreen and Fullscreen versions...get the correct one.

* Non-OAR discs are left off the Roundup, whenever they've been identified in advance. Example: Breakin', Hot Dog: The Movie, Johnny Be Good, Bright Lights Big City. This does NOT apply to markdowns, which are simply cut-and-paste from other lists.

* Well, okay: I'll relent for once and mention those non-OAR titles this time as part of this promotion: Best Buy will give you for FREE The Last American Virgin, The Flamingo Kid, Thrashin', Breakin', Hot Dog: The Movie, Johnny Be Good, Bright Lights Big City (otherwise $9.99 each) if you purchase on the same transaction both Valley Girl - Special Edition ($14.99) and The Sure Thing - Special Edition (also $14.99). My free item choice is Virgin...great flick! I was gonna buy it anyway, so this makes it sweet.

* Best Buy will give you 9,999 Reward Zone points if you are a member of that program, and purchase Star Trek: Deep Space 9 - Season 4.

* At Target, you can get two free bags (5 to 7oz.) of Sweet Tarts, Spree or Gummy Bugs with purchase of Agent Cody Banks.

* Target's "Low Prices" on Agent Cody Banks and Bringing Down The House both look like $15.99.

* Circuit City will give you a Bringing Down The House 2-track CD sampler free instantly with purchase of the Bringing Down The House DVD.

* Don't forget that there is this coupon good for 20% off your Borders purchase. It expires 8/10, so you can use it on the new releases this week. Unfortunately, there is no reliable way these days to snag Borders in-store prices from the web (they've messed that up wonderfully), so you'll just have to head into a store and figure it out on your own.

Whew, that's it for this week. After all that, I need a vacation. In fact, I'm taking one! I will NOT be responding to this thread (or any others) from mid-Tuesday to early Sunday, as I will be out-of-town. Away from computers and such (though I'm bringing the portable DVD player with me). I intend to post a Roundup for 8/12 releases, but you might get it Monday instead of the usual Sunday. See ya when I get back!

Thanks as usual, Dave! Phew! Only Casablance this week for me. Bought a lot of DVD-A recently so I could use the break financially. Damn I hate it when I'm visiting near Huntington Beach (like I was yesterday). I always swing by DVDPlanet - imagine me running around a store like those kids in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Instead of chocolate melting, it's my plastic... Posted Image

As always thanks Dave. I'm going for a blind buy in Casablanca. My Best Buy tends to be iffy with releases like Omega Man and Soylent Green (meaning they only get one copy of each) but for that cheap of a price I'm going to try to get there first.

Thanks for the list Dave.

I'm glad I waited to get Rocky III, now I can get Rocky II with it for $10. Is the Rocky II disk anamorphic?

Can someone explain the Best Buy reward zone program? I know you're entered into a daily drawing but what can you do with the points?

Also, does DS9 come with a bonus disk?

I'm interested in Casablanca but probably won't bother upgrading. I'll pick up Soylent Green instead if they have it around here.

Does anyone know what the limitations on the card are? There are implied restrictions, but I've yet to see what "most items" means.

Well, it's a $99.99 price, so that's kind of to be expected.

I think I didn't get points for Solaris and Daredevil last week, when I used the "buy both, get $5 off", just based on the way things were printed on the receipt.
