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).

Lion King for sure come Wednesday afternoon. And I'm sorely tempted for Thor and the first 2 Transformers movies on BD. Maybe even GI Joe...but don't tell anyone.

Thanks Mike.  Later today I'll be posting a contest for the Lion King BD and Transformers 3 BD, so you may want to give that a shot Jason.  I'll make them both quick turn arounds so you can still take advantage of sale prices if you don't win.

Nice to see The Lion King 2-disc set being only $19.99. With the $5 Disney coupon and the $7.50 down payment I made at BB to get the cool steel case, I'll end up getting this for under ten bucks. :cool:

Mike, My Best Buy ad is only showing a savings of $8 for buying both The Lion King and Disney's African Cats/Beauty and the Beast. Of course, they should have had a savings offer if you want to buy all three.

So I guess $5.00 is the new normal for Disney coupons.  Boo!


Well, I was going to get the 3D Lion King anyway, so that plus the $7.50 deposit on the steelbook brings Tuesday's damage to $17.50.

Is there a coupon for the two discer? I only got the $5 coupon for the 3-D four disc set.

It's technically only good for the 4-disc set, but so was the $5 coupon for Tangled earlier this year, and I managed to use it at BB for the 2-disc version with no questions asked, so fingers crossed. ;)

That's not a bad idea. I may give it a try myself at Toys R Us.

The Subway $5 coupon is good on any DIamond edition of Lion King which includes the 2 disc. I got one at a Subway in Wal Mart just by asking & didn't have to buy a kid's meal to get it. Might work for others too. Depends on your Subway guy.

I want to share this information now because I think it may be useful to some members, but I need to tiptoe around some of it because of HTF's Rule #7:


7. No breaking "street date". Please do not post information about retail or other sources that have DVDs or other video releases available for sale before the official "street date".


I was traveling outside my hometown today and had a coupon to use on a Used Blu-ray (which was about to expire).


So I went into a store of a well-known chain...but one I had never been in before.  After I perused the "Used" section and found a title I had been looking for, I then realized that some of the high-profile titles in this week's WRU (The Lion King and Fast Five) were already out for sale.  Luckily, I had already put my $5 Disney coupon in my wallet.


As people are reporting above with Tangled, I WAS able to use the $5 coupon on the 2-disc Diamond Edition Blu-ray of TLK.


And this same retailer is offering another discount of $5 off via mail-in rebate!


Here's the breakdown:


Original price (MSRP?)  $39.99

Minus $12 (sale price)    $27.99

Minus 10% Discount $2.80 ("Loyalty Discount")  $25.19

Minus $5 (DMR Coupon)   $20.19

Minus $5 (Mail-In Rebate)  $15.19!


Not bad at all!   Posted Image

I was actually considering buying a Subway kid's meal just to get the coupon, but I was afraid people would look at me funny. Maybe I'll swing by my local Subway before I hit BB on Tuesday and see if I can nab a coupon.
