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.

Since I never got around to purchasing "Flags of Our Fathers," the 5-disc "Battle for Iwo Jima" set may be mine. Posted Image

Crikey...where to start?

Definitely getting Scrubs: Season 5, and the "Battle for Iwo Jima" set (since I waited on FoOF when it was originally released).

Since I'm fairly new to John Wayne (except for 'The Quiet Man' which desperately needs a restoration), I'm thinking about "The John Wayne Collection" (with El Dorado, The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, The Shootist, The Sons of Katie Elder, True Grit) and maybe "The John Wayne Adventure Collection" (with The High and the Mighty, Island in the Sky, In Harm’s Way, Donovan’s Reef, Hatari!).

Boy...this is a spendy week, for sure.

is that the real price for "The Complete Matrix Trilogy" at Costco? $27.89 sounds to good to be true!

Does anyone know what the bonus disc is for the Roots promotion? I'm the world's biggest Roots fan (writing a book about it) and I want to grab anything I can. I wasn't going to pick this up on Tuesday (waiting for the big box later this year), but I don't want to miss out on anything.

Barnes and Noble .com has the 5 disc BATTLE FOR IWO JIMA set for $34.98. If you area B&N rewards member, you get 10% off making it $31.48 and if you use one of the 15% off coupons (W6X3N9C works through May 21) you can get it for about $27.00 shipped. Not bad ata all.

MIKE, WHAT A LIST!!! I was just going to buy Apocalypto until I saw your list. Can I take out a loan?

P.S. How the West Was Won, is it a new version or the old?

Scott - that's great that I finally know what the Target bonus disc for Roots is. But what about the BB disc?
Also great news about the big box later this year (I didn't know that) - I'll probably wait for that.

Wow, big week. Lotsa good stuff there! I'll probably pick up the Iwo Jima set for both myself and my father, (Father's Day is next month!). And maybe catch up on a couple of TV sets from CC.

Thanks guys!

Big week for releases but not a very big week for me.

I'll be picking up:

Flags Of Our Fathers/Letters From Iwo Jima (5 disc)

and maybe The Third Man and Rio Bravo but I'm not sure how badly I 'need' to see the new extras.

Thanks for the prices! Posted Image

EDIT: I decided to order Rio Bravo but will hold off a while longer on The Third Man.

I don't know what Best Buy's bonus DVD is, but Target is including a DVD with the first 90 minutes of Roots: The Next Generation. I would assume that title is going to be released at some point in the near future and this is a teaser to encourage sales on that set.

And despite there being about 900 new releases this week, nothing for me!

EDIT: oops! I guess I should have read the rest of the thread before putting up my post!

From bestbuy.com
And now, while supplies last, you'll receive a free Best Buy exclusive DVD containing two episodes of the popular cooking show, "Turn Up the Heat with G. Garvin," when you order Roots.
