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.

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, PLEASE 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, Circuit City is still out of business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their prices anyway).

Thanks, Mike for the Round-Up. The Rockford complete series is something I'll pick up when there's a sale. Otherwise nothing much of interest as I wait for a decent price on last week's American Sniper.

For anyone who has an FYE close to them...


I saw American Sniper there for $24.99 (like nearly everywhere else). I was thinking of biting the bullet with my 10% Backstage Pass membership (bringing it down to $22.50). But then I saw a sticker on the cover that promised one of their mail-in rebates knocking it down $5. So, once I get the rebate, I'll be in for just $17.50.


I decided I could live with that and pulled the trigger. It might be ripe for a quick price drop. But, given that it might stay high for a while, I decided to go ahead and take the risk.

I neglected, when I made the original post, to include links to the HTF reviews of The Loft and Ray Donovan: Season 2.


That has been fixed.

Much appreciated, as always!


Seems like kind of a slow week otherwise. June promises maybe more in the way of purchases.


Thanks, Mike!

Thanks for the Roundup, Mike. Nothing for me this week.


Major Crimes is a great show, but not one I feel the need to own, although anyone who has not seen this season should consider giving the DVDs a look via Netflix or something.

Thanks for the Roundup. A pretty slow week for me, time to catchup on some titles I've been neglecting.
