    The Disclaimer Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price.

    "LP" in the RoundUp table means a store’s Sunday flyer says "Low Price". That means I could not locate a definite price for the item, and the ad is all I have to go on. Retailers use these phrases in advertisements so that they do not violate MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) agreements with the studios. Doing so can cost them thousands or even millions of dollars in co-op advertising funds.

    I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp. The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well as those which I consider will be of interest to a majority of consumers (and sometimes I’ll miss one!). I don't get paid for this, and I don't have the time to list every DVD. So, please don't complain! If there is a title not included in the RoundUp that you want to see, just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone!

    Note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the RoundUp. They set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. And, as always, Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

    A clarification I guess. This applies to any HD DVD "movies" and works for online and in store. It does not seem to work for any of the Music/Concert and Specialty HD DVD's (Living Landscapes, Discovery Atlas, DVD International, etc and a lot of the Eye Candy Travel selections). I was actually hoping to pick up some of the Music stuff I've been holding off on like the new Orbison, Heart, Eagle, etc.

    A large % of the selections are 24.99 so even with tax (free shipping on-line) it works out to about 15.50 a disc. Not great in line with Amazon's BOGO stuff at $10-11/disc, but many of the discs I got have never been offered in those highly discounted sales.

    I picked up Kingdom and Eastern Promises in one order (29.99 each at BB) and averaged about $18 per disc. Not too bad considering they are essentially New Releases.

    Thanks Mike and Patrick for all you do on a weekly basis. It's always good to know there are people as fanatical about bargains as I tend to be. [​IMG]

    These are not 14.99, they are 19.99 and you get a $5 gift card only if you buy two. Extremely misleading ad from BB. Buyer Beware.
