    I already spent Christmas money / money from returns on:

    Office Space
    Tommy Boy
    The Lost Boys (got the old version and upgraded it to the new SE)
    King Kong Collection (the Best Buy limited edition)

    I still have $9 left to spend. It will either go towards a cheap movie (perhaps it's finally time to pick up Laura!) or be used to other money for something bigger. Not sure yet.

    I traded THE ISLAND (which I'd already bought the date of release) for TOY STORY 2: Special Edition; I'm also spending some X-Mas cash on the Collector's Box for the FRIENDS DVDs Seasons 1-10 and on an import DVD of U2's "All Because of You" single...

    I used a giftcard to pick up The Shield: Season Four. I was buying it either way but it was nice to save the cash. [​IMG]

    Well, I bought a CD player for my car with the help of a Best Buy gift card, but with the remainder of the money I have until payday, I will probably buy:

    Grizzly Man
    Into the Blue
    SeaQuest DSV: Season 1
    The Shield: Season 4
    Tracey Takes On: Season 1
    WWE Survivor Series 2005

    I ended up spending the $9 on Laura and Se7en. I guess I went a little over the $9 I had to spend, but Se7en Platinum was on sale for $12 and I couldn't resist. :b

    That brings up a question that I'd be interested in hearing the answer to:

    With your Christmas 'proceeds', what DVD's will you buy that you normally wouldn't buy with your own money.

    "With your Christmas 'proceeds', what DVD's will you buy that you normally wouldn't buy with your own money".

    Good question.

    Since I have a friend that works in my local video store I usually do not buy that many new releases since I get everything from him used at half the price of the new release price at a particular time of the month so I usually use gift certificates/money for box sets or releases that my local video store would not carry. He lets me come in and pick the best copies. Example: Wedding Crashers best price is $14.99, I'll get it for $7.00 when he can pull the copies to be sold. Done this for years and never had a bad copy.

    I got a $25 gift [Walmart. UGGG!!] card from a relative. I am going to get either Nashville or Being There on DVD. How are the transfers [sound & picture] on these? Is Warners planning special edition of Being There? Would be nice! [​IMG] My other gift card is a $50 American Express gift card. That will be used on Feb 28th when that Dog Day Afternoon, Network, and All The President's Men box is released from Warners. Wow! What a Christmas! [​IMG]

    It makes no difference to me. I buy the same things regardless of where the money comes from. The only time it would make a difference would be if it were a giftcard to a place with a very limited selection. But I'm having a hard time coming up with an example.

    I went out last night with a list of about 30 titles. I found one of the titles on my list. In the process of looking, I found another title that I've never picked up at a price I couldn't refuse. But I would have eventually picked up both of them.

    Typically I get gift cards to our local maga-mart (Fred Meyers for those in the Northwest). If they don't have what I want in their Home Electronics department, I use the card for groceries and spend the grocery money elsewhere.
