    Titles included in collections in the above grid:

    The Fantastic Films of Ray Harryhausen: It Came From Beneath the Sea, Earth vs. Flying Saucers, 20 Million Miles to Earth, Mysterious Island, H.G. Wells’ First Men in the Moon.

    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! The Billy Madison/Happy Gilmore Collection SEs AND Samantha: An American Girl Holiday AND Spiderman 2 SE AND the Spiderman 1 & 2 SE Two-Pack are ALL available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one.

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

    --Best Buy is offering an exclusive FREE bonus disc in pack with the purchase of Spider-Man 2 SE DVD. Includes: “VH-1 Goes Inside Spider-Man spotlights unforgettable moments from Spider-Man 2. Also includes insider interviews with its creators, director, producers and celebrities.” Minimum 75 per store. No rainchecks.

    --Best Buy is also offering one of its 2/$25 deals if you want to purchase both Spider-Man and Spider-Man 2.

    --Into the martial arts films? Best Buy will give you 10% off “on any other DVD in our Martial Arts section with purchase of Hero ($17.99) on the same receipt”. For examples, they show Iron Monkey, Crouching Tiger/Hidden Dragon, and The Last Dragon.

    --Target is advertising an exclusive with the purchase of the Samantha: An American Girl Holiday DVD. Get a gift pack of a doll and mini book with the DVD.

    --This edition of the Weekly RoundUp NOW has been updated to include prices from Circuit City’s Sunday Flyer.

    I think you're right about the SB pricing for Spiderman-2 at Best Buy being a typo.

    Dillon: You rock. Thanks for your keen eyesight! I cannot believe I goofed that up. The Spider-Man 2 Suprbit will run for $17.99 at Best Buy. They are advertising their Spider-Man Superbit for $14.99.

    All that use of similar but different cover-art is enough to drive ya nuts! :b

    Nothing for me this week (although the Harryhausen set at BB is tempting...)

    I am looking to get the Josh Groban "Live at the Greek" CD/DVD for a gift. In the CC ad, it's listed under the new release CD section for $16.99 and in the new release DVD section for $19.99. Anyone got any info on this?
