12:03am.   Where were you Mike?  j/k     Oh, to see the summer movies start to hit the Roundup.   Our b&m BB hasn't opened yet so I'll probably get Transformers 2 disc dvd at Wal Mart with my nephews employee discount.  Planes, Trains & Automobiles is on order from Deep Discount.  Thanks for the Roundup.  The next 3 months I'll be using it a lot more than I have for quite a while.

Legit question.

Watching the baseball game...and then finding my computer to be a little sluggish.

Now...off to bed.

You're going to bed right after ARod's tying homerun?    Course with the rain starting to hit this one might get delayed or postponed.  Anyway, thanks for the help saving $$$ on my dvds.

It'll be interesting to see if this one get's finished tonight. 

No talk of "big green blobs" over NYC on the satellite maps by the weatherguys via Buck & McCarver.

I was on the fence about Transformers 2 until I saw the Wal-mart deal. Sold!

I loves me some zombies.

Hmmm...  When the B&M CC died, people thought there will be less competition for BB and Amazon to keep prices in check, etc.  But seems like Walmart (and even Target on occasion) has stepped up to do more than what CC ever did for the pricing competition (at least for Blu-rays anyway as far as I can tell)...

And thanks, Mike, for yet another weekly roundup

Nothing for me this week. Thanks for the prices anyway! [/url]

Blu-ray:

$12.99 each:
Halloween ?


 

I think the DVD is a movie called Teeth. That Halloween Blu-ray is the 2007 remake (so both the original and remake are on sale for $13 each).

This week is a total FAIL.  Unless I hear of a good unadvertised special on something I want, another lacking week.  That's good...gives me time (and money) to track down some missing Walt Disney Treasures online.  :)

I will have to check out reviews first, but I might have to double dip on Fawlty Towers!

I agree. I avoid buying new shiny discs at Wally World but when they drop prices down that low for a new Blu, I will march in and grab a copy! In fact, I'll be blind buying Megan Fox Robot Movie 2!

Man:  Wal-Mart's not a good fit for the RoundUp because (if you read the weekly disclaimer:  Paragraph 3) it's a store that1.) engages in regional pricing, and 2.) often price matches whenever local stores advertise lower prices.  So--bottom line--prices at W-M tend to be all over the place. 

I remember years ago, doing a separate price table for only Wal-Mart prices for a particular big release.  I think it might have been the release of the original Star Wars Trilogy on DVD.  It was really amazing how different the prices were.

Ooooh...  Good point about Walmart's regional pricing being a problem.  I don't live near one, so haven't seen it firsthand.  I generally only see what's listed for their online site -- usually when I check one of the price search engines (eg. dvdpricesearch.com).  Do they still practice regional pricing?

Also, would it make sense to include just Walmart's online prices (under Walmart.com)?  Most folks might not actually order from there, but their online site might still serve as a good reference point for shoppers though, especially since Amazon tends to match their prices quite regularly these days.

Junior REALLY wants that new Transformers movie, but it sounds awful.  On the other hand, it also sounds like the extra features might be worth $20.
