If you have a Media Play in your area, you probably already know about this, but they are shutting down nationwide. They've been scrapping stores here and there since the late 1990's and they're finally pulling the plug completely. Right now, all DVDs are 20% off (which makes some of them a good deal, and others still outrageously priced -- e.g. saw the Harry Potter box set there for $55; after 20% off, it would have been $44. Went over to CVS and got all three for $10 each). They had some other interesting deals as well. 10% off all video games and electronics. 20% off all books and CDs. 30% off all apparel and "home decor". 40% off all "paper" products (notebooks, etc). YMMV. Prices are sure to go down more before they fully close sometime in mid/late January. Of course, no returns, etc. Looks like my sister will have to spend her $30 Media Play gift card I got her for Christmas fairly quickly.
