    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.

    Thank you Mike & Patrick for your hard work and dedication for the Weekly RoundUp - your efforts are truly appreciated.

    A very Merry Christmas to both of you and your families - and also to all HTF'ers.

    Nothing for me this week - finally - whew!
    I saw the Best Buy 24 deal posted on another forum and popped in here to see if it was posted . . . and of course it was already (like Mike & Patrick are going to miss a deal like this one).

    Anyway, this is unverified because I don't have the ad in hand, but I saw it posted elsewhere that the Best Buy 24 deal is valid Sunday only in-store. Although, I have more faith in Patrick's post stating that this deal is valid Tuesday through Saturday. Either way, if anyone is considering any of the 24 season sets, pay attention for the valid dates (just in case it is one of Best Buy's Christmas Eve specials), and don't miss out on this deal.

    I have all 5 seasons or else I'd be picking up any missing season at this price. Well, I'm off to continue with 24: Day 5 - only 8 more episodes to go!

    Oops - I almost forgot, here's the link to the 24 season sets at BestBuy.com (the web site does not mention the valid dates for the $19.99 price, but that price is effective now for all 5 seasons):

    As always, thank you guys. Fearing 24 would be gone if I waited, I was at BB promptly at 7 am this morning. Picked up Seasons 2-5 for me and S3 for the boyfriend's father. Now THIS is the sale I was waiting for with the release of S5 a couple weeks ago.

    Otherwise, might bite on Last Kiss and will definately be getting NA of He-Man. Merry Christmas all!

    One more comment on the Best Buy 24 Season Sets $19.99 sale:

    24: Season 5 was released on 12/05/2006 and was priced significantly higher ($37.99 at BB and $36.99 at CC). Anyone who has previously picked it up may want to check the store's policy regarding price matching and get some money back.

    I picked mine up at BB for $37.99 and I'm going to stop by today and try to get the PM. I don't forsee it being a problem - here's BB's policy:

    So 24 fans, dig out your Season 5 receipt and hopefully get some money back.

    Add me to the list of folks saying a heartfelt "Thank you" this morning for all that you do to keep us posted about the great deals out there all year long. I've probably spent more than I otherwise would have because of some of the irresistable prices I've seen posted here, but my collection is *much* larger than it would have been without the Forum, and for that I thank you again!

    I'll be picking up:

    The Black Dahlia (hardly a great movie but I feel the sick compulsion to keep my De Palma collection going)
    Jackass Number Two

    And I'll probably rent The Last Kiss (since I enoyed Garden State) and The Descent.

    Special thanks to my buddy Keith who pointed out to me a mistake in my pricing of The Descent at Circuit City. I simply slipped a digit. I have changed the grid to reflect the actual sale price of $16.99 for BOTH the theatrical and unrated versions of The Descent.

    Thanks to everyone for the well-wishes, holiday greetings and expressions of thanks. It is my pleasure to help out and provide the rallying point for DVD bargain shopping. I know I don't always respond when folks say 'thank you"...but I want you to know that each and every one of those 'thank yous" is VERY much appreciated and goes a long way towards keeping me coming back each week with another RoundUp.

    I, too, want to thank Patrick Sun for helping me out over the course of the year...often times actually posting up my work "on deadline" when I know I'm going to be away from a computer at the witching hour.

    And, finally, let me thank everyone who posts (and lurks!) each week for being part of a terrific sub-community within the greater whole of the HTF community! [​IMG] Thanks! [​IMG]

    Ric: It's not quite as good a deal as Best Buy's...but I know the Target in East Greenbush had quite a lot of copies of 24: Season 5 on hand as recently as yesterday! Target's got all seasons at $24.99. (Regularly priced at $46.99! [​IMG] )

    Target is a little easier to get in and out of this week than BB! [​IMG]
