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).

Man, that BB price on the Star Trek BD 6-pack is tempting. I could ask for it for a Father's Day gift, but I don't have any kids.

For those who don't know, there's a coupon from Sony for $5 off the Ghostbusters Blu-ray:

Seems like a great deal to save $5 off the $20 Best Buy price.

I'll have to pick up The Outlaw at that BB price. Naturally, I'm interested in the film because of the ... uh ... Wild West theme. Yeah, that's the angle that interests me.

Rather big release week this week. I've got both seasons of LOST coming from Amazon for $63. I'd like to bite on all the BD Friday the 13th stuff, but I have a feeling they'll all be on sale rather soon. Ditto on Spaceballs.

Thanks for the Roundup!

Surprised to see Gran Torino drop to a sales price so quickly.

Big week for me... Ghostbusters, Seventh Seal, Dr. Strangelove, and maye Transformers S1. Really want the Transformers boxset but it may be too hard to wait. Posted Image

First a thanks to Mike and Patrick for providing the first HTF thread I read on Sunday mornings!

I apologize if I am stepping on toes but thought I would throw in that Costco has, in their latest coupon book which runs June 15th thru July 5th, $20. off Warner Bros. Blu-Ray Assorted Collections.

Titles Include:

Batman Anthology
Ultimate Matrix
Harry Potter Years 1 - 5
And/Or Dirty Harry Collector's Edition

No limit.

Also available at Costco.com

When I was in Costco last weekend those box sets were going for $88 each.

There is also a coupon for $50 off The Sopranos Complete Series DVD Gift Set. I do not know what the current price is.

That's a great price on the 2-disc Zodiac! If you already have the DE-DVD, try to find a BD copy with the $10 trade-up rebate sticker on the case. If you are a fan of David Fincher, it is well worth adding to your library... especially for just $4.99 when you upgrade!

Thanks for the heads-up! I was able to pick this up today (there was only one copy) because I saw your post before I left for work.
