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).

There is a $5 off coupon for 3 disc version of Gnomeo.  Makes it the same price as the 2 disc version at Best Buy: http://www.disneymov...gnomelptw_print

Nothing for me this week, but the teens are looking for Lemonade Mouth and I Am Number Four.


Still trying to decide what to do. I'm not really excited about this week's prices.

Amazon has done some two-fer price matching. They call it a "Best Value":


Buy Gnomeo and Juliet (Three-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD + Digital Copy) and get I Am Number Four (Three-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy) at an additional $10.00 off Amazon.com's everyday low price.


Buy Lemonade Mouth (DVD) and get Gnomeo & Juliet (DVD) at an additional $6.00 off Amazon.com's everyday low price. 


Decent deals if you want both package titles. Unfortunately for me, I wasn't crazy about Gnomeo & Juliet when I saw it in theaters. What to do.


Thanks as always for the Weekly Round-up Mike!

And all have now been added to the OP.


I think we are setting a new Weekly RoundUp record this week.  Of the 17 titles listed in this week's Blu-ray grid...12 of them have official HTF reviews!  That's more than 70%!  Posted Image


Pretty cool!  Posted Image

Exactly the reason I posted those links because I believe it is the cloest we've come to filling out the entire BD grid. And I know Grand Prix is being worked on so that will add another slot to be filled shortly.

Picked up the Great Dictator today but it was pure luck. I had a Borders 50% off coupon and have plus membership, but my Borders never has these as a new release. They did have this for some reason. So $18 out the door.

I ended up buying Gnomeo & Juliet on BD after all. I was going to just buy Lemonade Mouth, but with Target's Combo pricing and Disney coupons it was a no-brainer to pick-up G&J as well - it only cost me an additional $6 to get it on BD (hard to pass up at that price). Here's how it broke down for me:
