Amelia: I have to go.
Viktor: I have to stay.
Amelia: Story of my life.
Viktor: Me too.

–Tom Hanks as Viktor Navorski/Catherine Zeta-Jones as Amelia Warren (The Terminal – 2004)


George Costanza’s answering machine: Believe it or not, George isn't at home. Please leave a message at the beep. I must be out or I'd pick up the phone. Where could I be? Believe it or not, I'm not home. [beep]
–sung to tune of “The Greatest American Hero” - Jason Alexander as George Costanza (Seinfeld – 1990)

Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed advertisements, the Sunday of the week of release (so as to catch any week-of-release sale prices). All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price. If a price is marked "$_N/A_" in the grid, it means that this title is not shown as available on that chain's website or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores!

$_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that 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 only include the titles I feel like including (or the ones Dave tells me he's looking for ;o)). In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing 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...like Dave & I do!

Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. Also note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the standard Roundup: they set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is not a way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. When it comes to Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices mentioned at all, just remember that "Your Mileage May Vary".


**BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban AND Harry Potter Collection Years 1 - 3 AND The Terminal are ALL available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one. Also, The Ranch is available in both Unrated and R-rated versions. Get the one that’s right for you. ;)

--Amazon is still featuring free shipping on orders over $25. Restrictions apply.

--Best Buy is reporting an exclusive bonus disc “Life Before Seinfeld” with purchase of any Seinfeld DVD season set. Features interviews with George’s and Jerry’s parents, Newman, Puddy, Uncle Leo and more. Minimum 75 per store. No rainchecks.

--Best Buy is also offering a free copy of Entertainment Weekly “The Best of TV on DVD” with the purchase of any DVD this week. The magazine includes a spotlight on Seinfeld. Minimum 200 per store. No rainchecks. In-store only.

--Best Buy is also offering one of its 2/$25 deals if you purchase Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban ($15.99) with either of the first two HP movies ($14.99). $16 + $15 = $31. $31 - $25 = $6 savings.

--Target is advertising a free box of Pop-Secret popcorn (eight-count) with the purchase of ANY Seinfeld DVD. Coupon on DVD. Quantities limited. No rain checks.

--If you still have the coupon that was in last week’s Circuit City flyer to get 15% off 3 DVDs…that coupon is still good through Wednesday, November 24. Discount taken from regular price at register. Sales tax, delivery fees and sales/clearance items excluded. Valid in-store only. Not combinable with select Circuit City offers. Not redeemable for cash. Reproduction/photocopies will not be accepted. Void where prohibited or restricted. Limit 15 per person.

--This edition of the Weekly RoundUp NOW includes prices from Circuit City’s Sunday Flyer. I have adjusted the HP box set, Golden Girls, Home Improvement and Lizzie McGuire. Note the Circuit City flyer says the HP price of $14.99 is good Tuesday & Wednesday only.

As usual, Thanks Mike.

This is a fairly expensive week, followed by a lull next week, and then the real killer Dec. 7.

Thanks, Mike. Seinfeld Gift Set, Tanner on Tanner (fotgot that was out this week), and probably World Series 2004 for me this week.

I'm assuming that's for a specific DVD, but you left that (rather important ;)) info out, Mike. You may want to add that in. The new Harry Potter, I imagine?

Ahh, the week of the green, when the Christmas season begins to torment all parents who wish to purchase stuff for Christmas. But that doesn't effect me, so why did I bring it up in the first place?

Anyway, I probaby get Terminal (difference on version?!?) and Harry Potter this week. Just going to have to get them on Tuesday or Wedesday, as getting them on Friday would be murder.

COLOSSUS THE FORBIN PROJECT is, unfortunately, a pan-and-scan release of a film originally in 2.35 Panavision. Avoid at all costs and let Universal know why you *won't* be buying it.

FYI.
Hollywood Video's instore catalog, Movie Companion, has the Seinfeld sets advertised at $19.99 each. I think it may be a mistake, but I'm gonna try to get them to honor the price on Tuesday.

I will not be getting anything this week as I have already moved into Black Friday mode and cannot spend a cent until the day after Thanksgiving.

HERE'S our own HTF thread on the subject Kenneth. Basically, the one-disc is just the movie. The LE includes a 2nd disc of features and a 3rd disc (CD) of the score.

Peter: Thanks for the info on Colossus. It is now stricken from the RoundUp.

Thanks Mike!!!


For those of you who have a CompUSA nearby, they are advertising the Seinfeld boxed set for 69.99 in their weekly flyer. Might be a good thing to do a price-match at Circuit City with this ad.

Golden Girls and Seinfeld are both on my Christmas list, so I don't have anything to actually purchase this week!

The one that i might pick up is ABBA's "Super Troupers" DVD. It's a documentary with recent interviews of the group that was done for their 30th Anniversary. I've seen it available online, but if anyone sees it in a B&M I'd sure appreciate a post here!

I'm going to be waiting on some things until Friday or Saturday since I'll be hitting Best Buy's black friday.
Dissapointing that I haven't seen that listed yet on the net. Apparently there was a crackdown last year.
