More current bargains are divulged below in subsequent replies...


If you haven't already rushed out to get these:

You can buy Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring for $19.99 at Music World IF you also buy two other $19.99 dvds (selection ranging from Basic Instinct SE to Twelve Monkeys DTS, not bad).

The Simpsons Season 2 set can be had at Wal-Mart for $39.88. Oh, while at Wal-Mart, you can also get Speed 5-Star Collection for $21.88 too.

Good things come to those who wait (a few days).

LOTR WS DVD is on sale for CDN$21.83 at Real Canadian Superstore. Limited quantity of 1. CDN$24.88 for 2+ quantities. It's likely that this is a limited time offer. Get 'em while you can. I would have picked one up while I was there, but I already ordered it online from Rogersvideo.ca

Wal-Mart does it again.

According to the flyer, you can get the Gremlins Special Edition at Wal-Mart for $17.88.

edit: Just paid a visit to Music World. They've got Dinotopia (highly recommended by Ron Epstein) for $19.99!

Music World seems to be a rip off here. EVERY dvd is $2 more than any other store in Town! I've tried like 4 Music worlds. They use to be cheaper than most stores (like a year ago). I went there the other day and they even had the super savings dvd's (you know the ones that are $19.99 everywhere) they were $21.99!

What blew me away was American Pie 2 was $39.99!!! It's like $26 at wal-mart. Jerry Maguire was $39.99 as well again $26 at wal-mart.

I won't be shopping at Music World anymore!

You guys may want to check your local Wal-Mart flyer, but mine states that Sopranos: Season 3 is $64.88 CAD on DVD! It's obviously a misprint as this is the VHS price (DVD is suppose to be $89.88). There are no mentions of corrections at this point either. Great deal for anyone in the market for it.

Friends,
I've got a little something different for those interested in computers who will be in the Greater Toronto Area September 27-29, 2002.

The Computer Fest: Computer Show and Sale will be held at the Automotive Building, Exhibition Place, Toronto, Friday 10-9, Saturday and Sunday 10-6.

Regular admission is $9.

Here's the best part of my post.
Usually, you can get a $1 off coupon in the newspaper or the various computer newspapers. Well, now you can get a $3 off coupon here. Just print it out and bring it to the ticket booth to save a little money on admission. Get it while the link is still active.

Cheers!

Until October 31, 2002, you can use it at Sunrise Records to get $2.00 off any CD, Cassette or DVD priced $17.00 or more (limit one per customer, per purchase).

Have any of you guys checked out www.amazon.ca yet? The pre-orders aren't bad and with coupons such as CANADASMAG5T a new customer can get $10 off a $50 purchase. Plus they have free shipping for orders over $75 before coupons.

I pre-ordered the ET 3 Disc box and the special Spider-Man box set with comics, etc. Not a bad deal at all.

Some of the other pre-orders are less than Futureshop as well including the ST:TNG Season 5 set.

Using that coupon posted by PatrickM, I pre-ordered the Kurosawa - Four Samurai Classics boxset from Criterion (Seven Samurai, Hidden Fortress, Yojimbo, Sanjuro) for $97 +tax, with free express shipping.

Four Criterion titles for under $100 CDN!

I put this in Dave's weekly roundup, but not sure how many Canadians read it since it's strictly US stores, so I thought I'd mention this deal here as well.

For fellow Canadians: at Mainlymusic.com if you are an original member you can get Spiderman DVD for $14.99 (Canadian Funds) with free shipping. It will show up at $29.99 with a $15 discount in your shopping cart.Sweet Deal.http://www.mainlymusic.com

The Blizzard DVD Collection is now available at Electronics Boutique for $24.99. Otherwise, Compucentre has it at the still nice price of $30.99.

Some discussion of this three-DVD set has happened here.

James Bergeron shared this with us, Austin Powers: Goldmember for $19.63 at Wal-Mart until December 10. I had no such luck yesterday, maybe you will fare better.

While there, I picked up all three new Disney Treasures: Behind the Scenes at the Walt Disney Studio, The Complete Goofy, and Mickey Mouse in Black and White for $23.46 each. Beautiful!

Attention!! Future Shop sale till the 15th, pre-order BTTF trilogy for $39.99 + free shipping!!!!

Wal-Mart has advertised $42.83 for Back to the Future trilogy, I suggest getting there early as they might not have many widescreen copies. I suspect it will be cheaper as well.

Sorry about the $19 Goldmember not panning out, maybe my wal-mart is just great! I also got spiderman for $22 at wal-mart even though all the signs said $24.

So I'm hoping BTTF will be $39 at wal-mart! Although even $42 is great since I see it's $39 in the states!!!

I just found what may be the cheapest price for Die Another Day. I found it in the May 31st flyer for.....Shoppers Drug Mart priced at $19.99 ! Who would have thought it? Beats Best Buy and Future Shop by 3 bucks! I'll definitely take this flyer to Best Buy on Tuesday for a price match and get the free DVD as well.
