Individual titles included in box sets listed above:

The John Frankenheimer Collection: The Train, The Manchurian Candidate, Ronin, The Young Savages.

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.

Thanks gents!

Looks like just The Odd Couple: Season 3 for me this week. Although, since CC is featuring the Wii in their circular, I may break down and finally take the plunge... if I can snag one!

I looked at the Target ad the AM for the Saw IV Deluxe Edition. What I see looks like the regular edition of Saw IV with another movie bundled with it (Ad says Saw IV 2 pack). Am I missing something? Confusion reigns!

Thanks as usual. Nothing this week, though for some reason I had thought new versions of Manchurian Candidate and The Train were coming out. Guess not.

Slow week. Just Saw IV for me.

Thanks for the prices!


I looked at Target's ad on their website and it says that it's Saw IV and The Ninth Gate. It seens safe to assume that there's no exclusive content.

I would say the usual "Nothing for me this week", but it looking like my financial aid is coming in sometime this week, so I might be getting a few dvds I been meaning to get along with get some stuff for school (new bed, a new laptop).

Ah, good old financial aid. That's what paid for my first DVD player in 1998. I only have 3 years left till it's paid off.

Actually, Rick...I usually do whenever there is something I'm getting. I might consider the Dharma & Greg set at BB for $19.99 this week. I think Jenna Elfman is gorgeous and funny-as-all-get-out, but I've never really seen that many episodes of the show.

The guy who started this whole thing, Dave Lambert, started posting his own list of stuff...because he used to buy a LOT. I just like going through and posting all the (what I consider to be) high-profile stuff. Sometimes it helps me...but for the most part my financial situation keeps me from splurging too much.

I end up buying most of my DVDs used or on a really big sale.

That $4.99 list at BB this week is quite tempting for gifts. There are some really nice titles there.

Oh. I posted this in the Borders coupon thread. HERE IS A COUPON for 30% off any TV Show on DVD at Borders. Limit three per customer. Valid only on 1-21-08 & 1-22-08.
