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 Manchurian Candidate AND Thunderbirds AND Two Brothers AND King Arthur are ALL available in OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one! It appears as if the only WS version of King Arthur is an extended NR director’s cut, while the original threatrical release is available pan-and-scan only.

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

--Best Buy is offering a bonus 15 minute phone card instantly with the purchase of The Manchurian Candidate. Minimum 65 per store. No rainchecks.

--Save $5 instantly if you purchase Thunderbirds and Two Brothers on the same receipt at Best Buy.

--Save $10 instantly when you purchase any two seasons of The Simpsons at Best Buy. Season 1 = $29.99. Seasons 2 – 4 = $39.99.

--And, Best Buy is offering a bonus disc on its copies of Star Trek - Voyager: Season 7 Minimum 6 per store. No rainchecks.

--Circuit City is also offering an instant $10 savings when you buy The Simpsons: Season 5 and any other season of The Simpsons.

--Coconuts (TWEC) is advertising “Low Price!” on The Manchurian Candidate, Napolean Dynamite and King Arthur.

Sorry about the delay in posting this week's roundup (kudos, once again, to Mike, who is under the weather), got caught up in the Atlanta Falcons and their overtime win over the Carolina Panthers...

That okay Patrick, we will just get a lump of coal for Christmas instead of that widescreen tv. :D

Anyway, it's the Simpson for me this week, hopefully it not my usual "jinxing the purchase" ordeal I usually have. Have a merry Christmas everyone.

Wow, no sales for Shaun of the Dead anywhere. What a shame, means that it won't attract the 'impulse purchase' that would help this movie get in more people's hands. :frowning:

Simpsons and Shaun for me.

Can't wait to show SotD to all my friends. After introducing them to a handful of horror movies they now love, they're all hyped up for this one. :D

Thanks for the update and Happy Holidays to all.

For those that are interested - Fry's is advertising the King Arthur extended cut for $13.99. I'll actually be able to take advantage of it since they just opened Houston's second Fry's - and it's only five minutes from my house!! Woo Hoo!!!

Simpsons for me of course! I wanted to add that Deep Discount DVD has Hype! for $7.97 with no tax or shipping charge. Great documentary for the rock historians in the crowd. Get out the flannel!

- Simpsons S5
- Shaun of the Dead
- King Arthur

And I thought SotD and KA were next week, nice surprise. Now I can quit kicking myself for missing Shaun this summer.

Anyone know if the Field of Dreams on sale at BB for $10 is the new special edition or the first release?

Thanks Mike and Patrick for your work!

Wow, welcome to gouge the consumer week in the neighborhood! :thumbsdown: Those prices on Shaun of the Dead make me glad that I'll be getting it as a Christmas present. Better prices on Simpsons S5 than I expected though (time to cancel that Amazon pre-order).

Thanks Mike & Patrick!

Happy Holidays to all and thanks to Mike and Patrick for the work that they do in this section.
