| 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 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 only include the titles I feel like including (or the ones Dave tells me he's looking for ;o)). 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. 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...like Dave & I do!
Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. Also note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the standard Roundup: they set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is not a way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. When it comes to Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices mentioned at all, just remember that "Your Mileage May Vary".
**BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Fever PitchAND Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy are available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one!
--Well, things have calmed down since last week’s blockbuster release week!
However, some notes: The 3-disc SE of Chicago seems to have been pulled from this week’s expected release. Also, all Red Sox fans should take note of the alternate release of the movie Fever Pitch. It is called the Boston Red Sox Reversed Curse Edition and features a longer cut of the film and some different extras. Also there are some new combo deals which are being made available this week. I have not included them in the RoundUp table itself because they do not appear to be new releases, but some of you may still be interested. They include: I Know What You Did Last Summer/I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, La Bamba/The Buddy Holly Story and Soccer Dog/Soccer Dog: European Cup. And, I also included in this week’s RoundUp two films which seem to have conflicting release dates: Branded (9/27) and Carlito’s Way: Ultimate Edition (9/27). There is a chance they may show up in stores this week…or maybe not for another week or two.
--For anyone who did NOT get their copy of Lost: Season 1 last week, Circuit City is offering a deal in which you buy Lost: Season 1 and get $5 off any CD. Purchases must be on same receipt. In-store only.
--Also, for those who bought Lost: Series 1 at Best Buy to get the bonus disc and the $10 coupon to use on Desperate Housewives: Season 1 should know that it looks like that deal is about to get even better! Gord Lacey of TVShowsonDVD.com has reported in another thread over in the HT Software Forum:
| The DH package has a sticker on it that says "Save $10 by mail *with purchase of Desperate Housewives Season 1 and Lost Season 1." |
*Offer expires December 31, 2005. Good in USA and Canada only. Void where prohibited. *See complete details inside DVD.
You need to send in:
-Proof of purchase tab from DH season 1
-Proof of purchase tab from Lost Season 1
Cash register receipt from DH Season 1 set purchase imprinted with store name and dated between September 20, 2005 and December 31, 2005 with price circled (photocopies are okay)
-Original, hand-printed, complete certificate (no photocopies!!)
This is something on every DH set, and the mail-in certificate is included inside. I guess people that bought Lost (with bonus disc) and DH at Best Buy will enjoy $20 off the DH set.
