    There's your signpost up ahead...
    [c][​IMG][/c]
    Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, the week of the 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...but it COULD still be in-stores!
    I only include the titles I feel like including. 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. I have a lovely wife and a four-year-old son I'd rather spend time with. 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 I do!
    Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

    * BE CAREFUL! Austin Powers: Goldmember is available in both Widescreen and Fullscreen versions...get the correct one.
    * Non-OAR discs are, as usual, entirely left off the Roundup. Example: My Neighbor Totoro.
    * Lilo & Stitch has a coupon on the box for $3 off the CD soundtrack.
    * Best Buy's online flyer still shows the "Black Friday" ads. So I don't have access to their complete list of special deals right now. But, according to "StinkPalm", purchasers of Goldmember may buy either Blade or Rush Hour for just $7.99. Purchasers of The Austin Powers 3-Pack can get either of those titles for free. The 3-pack seems to be all keepcases, by-the-way.
    * K-Mart has both Goldmember and Lilo & Stitch for just $14.87!!! DVD or VHS. Goldmember may only be stocked in fullscreen, though. But I will get L&S there!! [​IMG]
    * Target has Goldmember for $14.99 (free Pepsi Twist or Diet Pepsi Twist 2-liter bottle with purchase), and Lilo & Stitch for "Low Price". There is a great chance it will also be $14.99; no promises from me, though.
    * CompUSA has Lilo & Stitch for $19.99, and Goldmember for "Hot Price" (possibly $14.99; not sure). Again, probably stocked in fullscreen only on the latter. Good thing L&S is only available in widescreen, so there's no confusion on that one!
    The latest markdowns according to VideoTropics web site (DVD Title/Old SRP/New SRP):

    None. Still. Maybe they gave up?

    Guys & Gals, I am on day 7 of working as many as 20 days straight (including Thanksgiving after a fashion; I probably will get one day off on the 14th day, though). So if I miss anything this week or in the next couple of weeks, please fill in the gaps. Thank you!

    I believe that Best Buy is also having a Preferred Customer coupon deal this coming weekend. So that's another 10% off their prices. I wonder if they will take that 10% off after price matching other prices?

    Looks like I will be going to Best Buy this week to pick up Austin Powers box set (Christmas gift). And since Blade 1 is free there, I will just pick up Blade 2 for myself to complete that set. Also will get the Treasure sets too and maybe Lilo and Stitch.

    Thanks as always Dave!

    It looks like CC is the place to be if you are into any of the Disney titles coming out this week. I was there this weekend and the customer service was top notch. I am becoming more and more impressed with that store every time I go in.

    Brent_H,
    The prices that Dave listed above at CC and Costco are already pretty low, IMO. However, if you want to go online, DVDSoon.com lists them as $18.89.

    Dave,
    Many thanks for the Roundup. I was hoping to look for a better deal on Serpico - hopefully Costco will come through with a better deal. Otherwise, I'd have to go with DeepDiscountDVD.com for $16.97. Dave, thanks again for "sharing!"


    P.S. I'm not picking it up, but WHY would anybody ever get ST:TNG at Circuit City!?! Why CC prices their box sets so high, I can never figure out...

    James and everyone else,

    BestBuy.com is having a 20% off Paramount sale. Serpico is $15.99 just add your tax.

    Dave,

    The ST:TNG I ordered at Bestbuy.com for $79.99 does come with their bonus disc (at least, it better since it says on the site that it does)....

    I don't care if I don't have it right away, as I'm just starting to go through season 5!

    Sleep well.....
