    The prince of Persia and two with Jet Li.
    For the PC, the excellent Prince of Persia Warrior Within by Canada's own Ubisoft has great gameplay, graphics, and sound (5.1 available if you have something called Dolby Digital Live). It comes on three CD-ROMs plus a manual (not just an electronic manual). It's $9.95 at both Best Buy Canada and Futureshop.
    Two single-disc DVD titles featuring Jet Li, Unleashed and Hero, have been packaged together today. Zellers has the package for $21.87.

    Bought a 24" Wega crt at Zellers yesterday for $127.50 ($150 clearance - 15% off all crt). They only had 2 at Gloucester Centre which sold in 2 minutes, but said there may be more at other stores.

    Memory card stuff and one from Disney
    Canada Computer has a SanDisk 8-in-1 Hi-Speed USB 2.0 card reader that can read CompactFlash Types I and II, Memory Stick and Memory Stick PRO, SmartMedia, xD-Picture Card, MultiMediaCard, and SD Card. They have a three-percent cash discounted price of $19.99.
    Their memory card prices are quite good too: $59.99 for a regular 1GB SanDisk CompactFlash card, $74.99 for the faster Ultra II version. Alas, I believe they are situated only in Ontario, though they have an online store too.
    For tomorrow (Tuesday) only, you can get the new two-disc Lady and the Tramp 50th Anniversary Edition for $19.87 at Zellers.

    The original Planet of the Apes 6 dvd set is on sale at Future Shop for $32. Not sure if this is the new anamorphic dvds or just the old dvds, but that's a great price if all you want are the movies.

    Some TV on DVD 2-set combo packs cheap at Wal-Mart. IMO the best deal is S1&2 of Dead Like Me for $33 (I paid way more than twice that). I picked up S1&2 of Green Acres for $24. Most seem to be older series. I remember Bewitched S1&2 for $44 (color only), Married With Children S2&3 for $44, Soap S1&2 for $33. Some are relatively newer series, sometimes two S1's from two different series together. Worth a look. Some sci-fi series.

    That's not all that's $19.99 at HMV......I saw today that all 3 seasons of Gilligan's Island and Wonder Woman were that price as well.....so was Season 1 of Fresh Prince and the first 3 seasons of Dukes Of Hazzard.
    Really tempted to get Gilligan's Island. [​IMG]

    A few great deals by Zellers

    Also at Zellers, each of the most recent two-DVD editions, featuring remastered image and sound (plus dts option), of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 is $19.87.

    Even more price reductions on DVDs at HMV
    Two Kevin Smith anniversary editions Clerks X (with its wonderful documentary, both versions of the movie, plus a feature-length video commentary; I get hungry watching the participants chow down on their burgers) and Mallrats have a package price of $19.99.
    Corpse Bride with its isolated score track is now a selection in HMV's two for $30 sale. The two-disc editions of The Right Stuff (part of Warner's much lauded double-disc special editions) and Starship Troopers (also has an isolated score track) are also selections in this sale.
    Like the earlier post re: Zellers, each two-disc edition of Toy Story and Toy Story 2 is now $19.99 at HMV as well.

    TigerDirect has the Harmony 628 on clearance for $32.97 + $10 shipping.
    I got Best Buy (current price $99.99) to price match for 37.69 + tax = 42.97

    The manager wouldn't price match as it's a "while quantites last" special, but after some discussion he called TigerDirect who confirmed they had lots.

    Beastie Boys' latest DVD
    As evidenced by their Criterion Collection anthology release, the Beastie Boys aren't content to release a round-of-the-mill DVD release.
    Today sees the release of their latest, Awesome; I ... Shot That! which documents the Beasties' Madison Square Garden concert where they handed out about 50 camcorders to the audience to record the concert and other goings on. Bonuses include a full-length alternate angle of the multiple cameras, full-length a cappella vocal tracks, a band commentary, and more.
    You can get it with an extra-large t-shirt (featuring the Star Wars-inspired title graphics) at HMV for $12.99. Or get it with one of five ringtones at Best Buy Canada for $9.99.

    A couple of 2-packs I'd recommend from Wal-Mart. They advertised them in their flyers a couple weeks before they became available, JIC you forgot...

    The Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2, and the 40-Year-Old Virgin/Wedding Crashers ones. ~$22 each, about what they're selling the individual discs for. All good movies, with WC being IMO by far the worst but worth a view if you haven't seen it. 40YOV is one you'll probably watch a bunch of times, these are the unrated/uncorked versions. KB is cheap enough that those waiting for "proper" R1 DVD versions (like me!) can get it and not feel too bad...

    That's the way to do it!

    Admit I don't go to HMV much, and they don't advertise around here. And WM has been *just a bit* over-priced on discs lately, so I'm not surprised at all. I hope the sarcasm intended in "just a bit" stands out... We shall not discuss FS and BB even, they seem to have gone back to their old ways and only offer really old stuff/versions at reasonable prices.

    Oh well, I was a KB DVD holdout and I've already watched them, so too late for me. If it was more $$ I'd do the price match thing...

    *EDIT*- looks like this deal can be found at other HMVs.....found a similar (albeit much smaller) selection of titles at the Square One shop in Mississauga. YMMV at other locations.
