    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!

    * LOTS of notes about this weeks releases, so pay attention:
    * Best Buy's weekly ad shows TNG S2 at $99.99, but their web site today (Sunday) shows TNG S2 at $89.99, as a pre-order. I'd happily save the $10 and pre-order now, but BB.COM's pre-orders aren't eligible for in-store pickup, and I'm an instant gratification kind of person! So I'll get mine locally on Tuesday come heck or high water, but on Tues. morning when it's no longer a pre-order, if BB.COM still shows the $89.99 price then I'll buy it via the web and mark it for instore pickup. I'll still pay taxes, but I'll save $10 and still get this free bonus PC CD-ROM disc (only at BB [and possibly at Suncoast for $137.99]):
    [​IMG]...which used to be sold separately for $20-ish as this: [​IMG]
    * Note that To Gillian on Her 37th Birthday is non-OAR and should not be purchased! Bad Columbia! BAD! NO OAR = NO SALE!
    * Note that Ocean's 11 is available in separate OAR and Non-OAR versions. Look for the red WIDESCREEN EDITION banner across the top:
    [​IMG]
    Stay AWAY from the blue banner! Costco and Sam's Club are likely to have the bad version; watch out. NO OAR = NO SALE!!
    * The 2-Pack with Support Your Local Gunfighter/Support Your Local Sherriff is available both in "back to back" and "side by side" variations (it has to do with how they shrinkwrap the two boxes together). Best Buy shows $14.99 for the BtB version, which they're more likely to carry, but I listed the higher price just in case. Check before you decide! Oh, and just because this item isn't at Costco or Sam's websites, don't think it won't be there. This is just the sort of thing they love to carry. I'll check in-store at those clubs before committing to anywhere else; they'll probably have the best prices on this one!
    * The Disney Store is carrying all the new Disney titles (Pooh and the 4 Vault Disney discs: OY, PT ('61), Pollyanna, & SFR) for $19.99; unlike previous promotions where they gave away lithographs and so forth, there are no deals on these (not even Pooh!). Expect the next Disney Store deal for Monsters Inc., starting as a pre-order in June or July.
    * Best Buy is giving away some sort of DVD Sampler Disc when you pre-order Jimmy Neutron, according to their weekly ad. No details at the website, though. Anyone got any info on this item? Like what's on it?
    * There's a bunch of stuff I could have included in the roundup but left off, like Waking Life, The Last Waltz, and Bear In The Big Blue House releases. I plead fatigue! But everyone can list prices they discover for these items here.
    * Target has Ocean's 11 for $16.99, and Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh for "Low Price", but gives away a free 48-count pack of Crayola crayons with Pooh (shrinkwrapped to the package). Beware of Non-OAR copies of O11 (red top banner is OAR).
    * K-Mart has both Ocean's 11 and Pooh for $19.95 each; no freebie items this time. Wal-Mart's new circular shows those two titles on DVD for the same price. Beware of Non-OAR copies of O11 (red top banner is OAR).

    Just a note for Suncoast Replay members. On S1 of TNG they had it for the same price as Best Buy ($99) with the CD-ROM, but you also get points (more than enough for a $5 GC). S2 will probably be the same deal.

    BrianE, I'm not certain about Suncoast having that deal again, because last time Suncoast's website SHOWED the $99.99 deal; this time it does not! But someone should check it out in-store and let us know. Sometimes it is definately deceptive about web prices vs. in-store prices!

    Dave, since all those titles are being marked down, does that mean SE's are coming for them???
    [​IMG]
    I came across this at Hammer Films tonight, it's too bad it didn't make the date... "To the Devil... A Daughter".
    Good news though, Hound Of The Baskervilles looks to be arriving tomorrow. Best Buy should have it for $9.99.

    You sure about that Mike? I just went and checked this morning (Monday). Went to BB.COM, clicked on the Movies section, saw TNG S2 at the bottom left with the strikethrough on the $99.99; clicked to add it to my cart and it showed up there as $89.99 still.
    I figured it might be the collector set deal, too...but perhaps not. [​IMG]
    Crossing my fingers for tomorrow...
    PS - they now have info for the Jimmy Neutron sampler:

    David my bad, I just couldn't see that thin black line last night, lets do hope it stays that way.
    Although a few days ago BB actually showed the $89.99 price under the crossed out $99 price ?
