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).

I apologize for the problems with the formatting.

 

On the up side, I got the price tables to work.

 

On the down side, simple things like images and line breaks seem to escape my comprehension.

 

I'll be trying to get things cleaned up.

Pretty expensive week for me- I'll be picking up Lincoln, LEGO Star Wars and Mystery Science Theater 3000. I'll probably get the very funny Veep on sale at some point in the future too.

 

Thanks for the prices, Mike! :)

Those Amazon prices on Veep looked pretty good to me, Travis.  They took a big tumble just a day or so ago.

 

Very funny, Mike, in the Blu-ray table: The Devil in Miss Jones. :laugh:

 

D'oh!  Can't imagine what I was thinking.  I was trying to be so diligent in not making that very mistake. 

 

Hmmm.  Maybe it's a good thing the images at the top of the post didn't appear...

Thanks, as always, for the round-up.  The grid got my attention when I noticed The Devil IN Miss Jones was getting a Blu Ray release.  Sadly, it turns out the movie being released is actually the 1941 comedy classic The Devil AND Miss Jones, not the 1973 porn classic<_<

Yeah.  That's been fixed, Brian.  :thumbs-up-smiley:

 

AND...drumroll... :drum:   I think I've fixed all the line spacing issues in the "Specials" section!

Update -- BBY has the $10 GC for instore $50 purchase, but also $25 GC for $100.   Apparently some folks have reported issues with 3D titles not giving the GC screen during checkout so it may take a manager to make sure you get the right deal

 

Online there is a different deal -- buy 3 $14.99 Bluray titles and receive a $10 GC by mail separately  -- the GC should be added to your cart as a $0 charge, but people are reporting a few glitches with the automatic part.     Make sure you are signed into your account first, then add 3 eligible titles.   If it still doesn't add, throw in 3 copies of Argo and when you see the card, start subtracting things until you order is correct.

 

Terry Deto -- did you get my PM?

Woo-hoo your new table format looks dead sexy! [/Fat Bastard voice]
 
Was just going to buy Lincoln but I may have to look at Despicable Me 3D (I bought the non-3D version since at the time I didn't have 3D capability). And if I do that I should buy one more thing to get me over $50 at Best Buy for the gift card - is that online only or also valid in the store?
 
Thanks for all of your hard work (both for the WRU and for the migration)!

Stopped into BB this morning and picked up: Argo, Children of Men, Smallville S6 and S7 and TMNT for about $78.  Amazon already says Enterprise shipped for me.  They've gotten super quick about their shipping lately.  I'm now waiting for them to lower their price and honor the price match with BB.

 

Mike...gotta say...I was going through withdrawals last night.  :)   Thank you for all the time it takes to get the grids and prices ready to go every week...and especially this week!

Looking very spiffy, Mike! Thanks as always.

 

Just preordered the four-disc "Lincoln" on Blu from Best Buy. "Parental Guidance" will probably be a Redbox rental.

WRU looks GREAT Mike! Tables and all - benefit of getting here late after you swept and made it all nice.

Sucks that there are no good deals for the Criterions. My fallback is always Family Video for those, or Fry's if I gotta have em live and in person.

Fry's has raised their standard pricing from $29 to $30, FV is holding at $26, so even with tax since the shipping is split over 2 items it's worth the extra (and the wait, FV is never speedy about things...)

Amazon seems to have come down to $27 on all the CC titles going forward (the ones that list for $40) and so that's probably my route going forward. Free shipping there and just tax to pay being in CA...
Yes, these strange things happen all the time - PT Anderson, Magnolia
