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.

Zip, zero and zilch this week. Just as well since I spent entirely too much on Christmas today.

Is Amazon really changing less for the HD version of Talladega Nights than the SD version?

And Target is the same price for TN in SD & HD?

-- Circuit City has an EXCLUSIVE FREE DOWNLOAD OF “FIREFLY: THE BARNYARD GAME” when you buy Barnyard on DVD.
Mike, is this the long rumored follow-up to Serenity?? :D

Just WTC and Fair Headed Child for me this week. I don't see much on the horizon, though, in the coming weeks. Which is good, as my wallet needs a break!

Thanks Mike and Patrick for the always helpful RoundUp.

WTC 2 disc and Talladega for me. I was torn about the Chronicles EE, but after reading some reviews, I think I'll pass for now.

Just the Chronicles of Narnia: TLTWATW Gift Set for me. I'm really surprised that there isn't more interest in it, especially with Amazon's hefty 31% discount. It will look particularly sweet next to my LOTR collection.

Oh and the hunt is on to locate a copy of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (GCN) since Nintendo screwed the Gamecube crowd by cutting the production run.

WTC and Devil Wears Prada are possible rentals, but that's it. It's 3pm on Monday and only 17 posts in this thread? It MUST be a slow week!

:laugh: AND, most of the posts (13 of 18) are only one or two lines long! And one was a duplicate post! :D

Things pick up a little the week of 12-19...but then comes 12-26! :eek: Talk about nuttin'!
