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.

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, PLEASE 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, Circuit City is still out of business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their prices anyway).


The Specials

--Not sure what's the story with Davinci's Demons: Season 3 this week.  It was on my release list for this week.  It's in the BB flyer, but not the Target flyer and Amazon has no date for the DVD release and says the Blu release will be available on January 29.

--Target this week has a FREE EXCLUSIVE NOTEPAD with character quotes when you buy Downton Abbey: Season 6.  Free offer quantities limited.  No rain checks.


--Target is also advertising up to $7.50 in FREE MOVIE CASH with the purchase of Goosebumps. 

--And, Target is having a TITLE WAVE sale.  Choose from hundreds of movies, CDs and books for $10 apiece.  A number of  movie covers are shown.  Here's the best I can make out of the titles shown in the ad:

(maybe Blu?)

Now THAT'S what I'M talking 'bout! That's how ya go about making a contribution to a Weekly RoundUp! Thanks, Cameron! :biggrin:


Thanks, everybody, in advance for the "likes" to the OP this week. :thumbsup:


I have Downton Abbey coming to me from Amazon this week. I got an excellent pre-order price which matches this week's Best Buy price.


And I might go check out those $10 Blus at Target this week. There are some mighty good titles in that ad--most of which I, unfortunately, already have. But maybe there's something I've been on the fence about.

Picking up The Wrong Man.


My understanding is that the quality of the Kansas City Confidential blu-ray is worse than the MGM DVD. That is unfortunate.

As good as $10 movies sound, being a good man and honoring a promise sounds better. So I'll be skipping Gotham and Fantastic 4 and Minions...


Next week is another story with Batman: Bad Blood, though!


Thanks Mike!

Another great Doctor Who week!
Season 9 has provided the most consistent run of quality eps since Season 5. (It probably helped that most of the eps were in two parts.)

... And thanks for the tip on the Target "Title Wave". I received a Target gift card for Christmas and this should be the perfect way to burn it off!

Re: Target Tidal Wave

I ordered Blu's of Lucy and Imitation Game (that are not on your list) and MI, Minions and UNCLE that are. Their web site is flaky at the moment and I couldn't get it to acknowledge that I was in SC and not MN so I ordered to be mailed rather than store pickup Shipping is free on $25 or more. If you go to the target web site and choose weekly ad you can look at the details of all the 10 dollar specials plus their current target price.

Trainwreck and Gotham season 1 for $9.50 each (when using my Target Visa) was too good of a deal to pass up.


Thanks Mike!

I was in BJs this morning here in Raleigh, NC, and they have all 9 individual seasons of X-Files on blu-ray for $12.99 each, the lowest I have seen them anywhere.

Thanks for your work, Mike. A small correction - Goosebumps was a Sony production, but is listed in the Roundup as a Universal title. Not that this error makes much difference, since the prices for it are still high.


As a Goosebumps kid growing up in the '90s, I've got to say that I found the film really fun, although not for these prices necessarily. So I will get that at some point after a price drop, which shouldn't be too long from now I think.


Chi-Raq is also of some interest and I wanted to see it in theaters, but the only place playing it near here was sort of far from my house. Given that it is an Amazon Studios production, it should find its way onto Prime Video eventually, and that is when I will see it.


Nothing new for me this week, and most of Target's sale items seem like DVDs, so I doubt I'll get anything there either.

Boy, it seems like Amazon isn't even trying any more with the prices. I'm very afraid to see what the prices will be like if Best Buy goes under...


I want to pick up Da Vinci's Demons s3 on Blu, expecting that Amazon will match Best Buy's price as they did with the DVD version. The price has gone down three times this week, to today's low point of $38.04. This is on release day, and they're still over $11 higher than BB. I guess it's a trip to the brick and morter for me!


Thanks for the prices, Mike!

Walmart seems to have a number of recent blu's for $9.96 each, including: Fantastic Four, Maze Runner: Scorch Trials, Transporter Reloaded, Spy, and a few others. They each also include a $5 Vudu credit, if anyone's into that.

Looks like an old retail friend might be coming back to the grid.

Zombie retailer comes back to life. Some of their former spaces might still be vacant. I know the former store in Concord, NH, has remained empty since they closed. Though it sounds like the plan is for the new stores to be only a fraction of the size of the former box stores.

Their former store in my town was just recently turned into a Planet Fitness, before that they moved to the next town over and right across from a BB.


I hit Target's $10 sale and grabbed Jurassic World on Blu, it came with a slip cover and the disc of exclusive bonus content :)
