    (CC) after a title = New release in the Criterion Collection.

    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.

    Thanks for the Roundup!

    Slow week but I'll probably pick up Bank Job as a blind buy. That BB deal on Batman Beyond: Season 1 / 2 / 3 for $12.99 is a pretty good deal for those that don't have them already.

    Thanks as usual.

    An exceedingly rare purchase for me this week - a blind buy. I've never seen Trafic, but I love Tati, and while I'd normally wait to rent this and see if I want to purchase it, I've been waiting too damned many years to see this film, and so I'm going to take a chance and just buy it.

    The Bank Job and Celtics for me.

    Celtics highlights from last season on Blu-ray? How sweet it is! Any chance to see the Lakers get their butts handed to them again...and again...again...is worth $25 to me. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the prices. I may pick up Bank Job Blu-ray. Otherwise, I'm getting last week's Ruins Blu[ray at BB. With a $5 RZ certificate I have, it'll be $18.

    It's funny you chose that picture...not too long after it was taken the Sixers got their behinds handed to them by the Lakers in the championship.

    Celtics Championship on DVD...yeah baby!

    Birds of Prey and Eureka S2. As always, great job on the RoundUp, I just wonder why Target doesn't show the prices on more new releases each week. They actually had the best price on Psych S2 last week (just like they had the best price on S1 a year ago), and I'd just like to know what they have BoP and Eureka listed at this week.

    Damn it! It appears to be the fullscreen-only disc. I was hoping it was the 2-discer.
