    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.

    The Specials

    **BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Borat is available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one!

    --Best Buy has an EXCLUSIVE T-SHIRT with its copies of Borat GiftPack (“Set make for very niiice gift”). On-pack. Minimum 30 per store. No rain checks.

    --BB is also having sales on Cohen’s Da Ali G Show: Seasons 1 & 2 for $16.99 apiece, The Complete Series for $29.99.

    --Best Buy is also advertising three different deals involving Disney’s Peter Pan SE.

    --Circuit City Odds and Ends: Circuit City has long lists of titles included in sales of $3.99, $6.99 and $9.99.

    --Target has EXCLUSIVE LIGHT-UP PIN with its copies of Peter Pan SE (You might call it a Peter pin!). Items packaged together. Quantities limited. No rainchecks.

    --Target also has renewed its FREE $5 GIFTCARD promotion with the purchase of South Park: Season 9 and/or Sabrina the Teenage Witch: Season 1. Quantities limited. No rainchecks.

    --Target Odds and Ends: And, finally, Target has it’s usual assortment of $7.50 and $10 titles.

    Thanks as usual.

    Definitely Prisoner of Zenda.

    Probably Peter Pan (depends on reviews of PQ)

    And Hawaii Five-0 as a gift for my grandmother in law. I like the show, but not enough to watch over and over.

    Thanks, Mike and Patrick. Pretty big week for me:

    The Loop: Season 1
    Peter Pan PE (2-disc) (I'll probably get it at Target, which means I should get the Peter pin*) *That one's for you, Mike.
    Revenge of the Nerds Collection
    SNL: Best of Steve Martin Vol. 2 (needed something cheap for an online order)
    South Park S9 (eventually, but not this week).

    Mike, on that BB Disney 3/30 list, I believe Dinosaurs should probably be Dinosaur (no "s") - the CG-animated film from 2000(?). Dinosaurs is actually another Disney DVD - the TV series from the 90s.

    Chris, I believe that list is for Circuit City, Patrick just forgot to put the heading for it in. And they should be that price beginning today (through Saturday).

    Will pick up Everybody Loves Raymond Seasons 4 and 6 to update my collection.

    Does anyone know if you take the Circuit City Ad to Best Buy will they match the $17.99 price and still give you the $10 gift card per season?

    Also, I find that at Circuit City they automatically credit you the 10% difference between their price and the ad price, at Best Buy you have to ask and they do it after you insist.

    Thanks as always Mike & Patrick for the Weekly RoundUp.

    Peter Pan SE for me this week and I'll probably pick-up Borat too as a blind-buy.

    Some other B&M Peter Pan SE Specials / Promos for this week:

    (1) CVS/pharmacy will have it for $19.99 if you have an ExtraCare Rewards card (free - see CVS/pharmacy for card details). In addition, the CVS/pharmacy Sunday insert has a $5 off any purchase of $15 or more coupon ("Redeemable at our California stores only"), resulting in the PP SE DVD for $14.99.

    (2) Kmart does not list a price for the PP SE DVD, but has a gift with purchase. "Receive a Peter Pan card matching came with the purchase of Peter Pan on DVD. Platinum edition. While supplies last."

    (3) Albertsons (grocery store / supermarket): "Buy Peter Pan on DVD for $19.95 and receive FREE DASANI Fridge Pack (12-pack, 12 oz. Bottles) with Preferred Savings Card and in-store coupon." This one makes me long for the Target Market Brand Flavored Water promos from days gone by. [​IMG]

    (4) Toys R Us: Nothing special, but I had the ad, $19.99.

    (5) I'm not sure what kind of tie-in there is between Peter Pan and pasta sauce, but here it is: "Receive a $3 Mail-In Rebate when you buy Disney's Peter Pan Platinum Edition 2-Disc DVD plus 2 Jars of Francesco Rinaldi Pasta Sauce. Offer good March 6, 2007 through May 31, 2007. Good in USA only. Void where prohibited. For complete details and official mail-in rebate form, visit us at: http://www.francescorinaldi.com/pete...panrebate.html"

    (6) Now, here's a tie-in that makes much more sense: "Save $3 via Mail-in rebate when you buy these products: One jar of Peter Pan Peanut Butter + One loaf of Wonder Bread + Disney's Peter Pan 2-disc Platinum Edition DVD. For complete details and the rebate form visit: http://www.conagrafoods.com/peterpanDVD"

    As for my purchase of PP SE DVD: I'll probably end up getting it at Target (for the Peter pin) or at CVS with coupon for $14.99.
