Lately, one of my early Sunday morning rituals has been to comb the internet and search for the sale prices on new releases. Along with the strictly online e-tailers, I'll compare prices with 2 brick n' mortar stores - Best Buy and Circuit City. I've found that BB & CC compare very favorably with the etailers, if not beating their pricing on new releases. After midnight, the BB & CC websites change prices to reflect their new weekly deals for dvd's. This morning, my search was for the best deal on A.I. Bestbuy.com listed a price of $19.99 for both widescreen and p&s versions of A.I. Pretty standard. I expected the same from Circuit City. However, the two different formats for A.I. are accompanied by 2 different prices. On circuitcity.com, the price for the p&s version of A.I. is $17.99. Nice,...best price around, b&m or otherwise. Should be the same price for widescreen. Well, no... I did a doubletake as I saw a price of $24.99 listed for the widescreen version of A.I. That's a steep, seven dollar difference. At first, I dismissed this as an anomaly - I'll just get the dvd from best buy. Apparently, CC doesn't want my business. But then I became contemplative...seven friggin' dollar difference?!!! Why? How does CC justify this? Is this just an anomaly? I've not seen price tiers for different formats anywhere else before, b&m or online. This was the first time. So, is this just a one-off? Or does this portend a grim trend? Is anyone else familiar with this?
