    does the CC price mostly match the store's price? or can there be differences? i would like to buy SGG this week (starting the vacation, so definetly in las vegas if there is one [​IMG])

    and what about Schindler's List gift set? is there anyone going to look for the price tomorrow? it would be cool to have a comparison on how much to buy for this set. [​IMG]

    The price I list for Circuit City IS the in-store price. The on-line price can vary--as I showed this week with Best Buy and bestbuy.com. But the prices you see posted Tanja should be what you see in the store when you arrive. Have fun shopping!!! [​IMG] On-line is okay, but when you can fill up a cart with lots of DVDs...woo hoo! [​IMG]

    Re: Schindler's Giftset... It is hard to say when the brick & mortar stores will follow the MSRP drop. I'd say just keep your eyes open in the stores you visit and check here for folks to post on the prices they see. For example, I know the Best Buy near me has a HUGE stack of those giftsets sitting in their center aisle near the DVDs and are probably looking to move 'em out of the store as soon as possible. They might lower the price Tuesday!

    I am pulling The Incredible Mrs. Ritchie from the Roundup. Turns out it was just a pricedrop on this title that was released just a few weeks ago. (Should've thought it looked rrreeeeeeaaaalll familiar! :b )

    Thanks everybody! Please post with price sitings on the Schindler's giftset and anything else of note.

    This past month has been seriously lacking for me in terms of DVD purchases.

    But, all that will change beginning next month. April, May, and June DVD purchases(according to my calculations) will wind up costing me roughly $600.

    There goes my bank account...

    They are 4:3 here in the US but are originally LTBX.

    Swan Princess is FULLSCREEN and originally 1.85:1

    and the Swan Princess 2 pack that has the MAR'ed Swan Princess, also comes with a FULLSCREEN Swan Princess 2, which was originally 1.85:1 as well.

    I'm looking forward to blind buying The Final Countdown. Also, I didn't know FC was in widescreen and fullscreen versions, I'll have to make sure to get WS.

    For those of you who prefer brick-and-mortars, my local Hastings (in College Station) is going to have Panic Room Tuesday for $29.99. Best non-net price I've seen, and I'd presume other Hastings will follow suit.

    Bob Pierce - On Tuesday when you try to price match the two disc TCM - do come back and say if you were successful. I'd rather get that for 20, then get the 2-disc and the original for 30.

    Anyone know if Costco is going to be carrying "Panic Room" and at what price. If they are carrying it, I would expect the price to be pretty good.

    Was just at Target. Their unadvertised $10 specials this week seem to be:

    Anger Management
    Dirty Dancing (Ultimate)
    xXx
    Bend It Like Beckham
    Maid in Manhattan

    and maybe a couple of other things that have slipped my mind.
