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 or perhaps in their ads...but it COULD still be in-stores! $_"LP" means the advertisement says "Low Price", and $_"HP" means the advertisement says "Hot Price". Use of either of these in the Roundup grid indicates that 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 only include the titles I feel like including (or the ones Dave tells me he's looking for ;o)). In fact, the titles are pretty much the ones I'm personally interested in, with few exceptions. I don't get paid for this, and I don't have time to devote to doing 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...like Dave & I do! Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii. Also note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the standard Roundup: they set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is not a way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. When it comes to Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices mentioned at all, just remember that "Your Mileage May Vary". The Specials **BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL! Constantine (1-disc) AND Ice Princess are available in both OAR and MAR versions...get the correct one! --Thanks again to Patrick Sun for posting this up for me Sunday morning while I’ve got other things going on this weekend. Since I had to put the copy “to bed” earlier than usual, I might not have all the “specials” listed in the Sunday flyers for all the stores. If anyone sees anything I’ve missed, please feel free to post it in the thread for everyone. --Best Buy is advertising 15,000 Bonus Points for members of its Reward Zone Program with the purchase of the following DVDs: [c]Ice Princess ($19.99) Man of the House ($17.99) Diary of a Mad Black Woman ($17.99)[/c] --Best Buy is also offering a $10 coupon with the purchase of Laguna Beach: Season 1 ($29.99). The coupon is good towards the purchase of other MTV season sets of Newlyweds, Punk’d or Viva la Bam. --Circuit City’s deal on Laguna Beach: Season 1 ($27.99) is an EXCLUSIVE FREE keychain! --Meanwhile, at Target, if you pick up Laguna Beach: Season 1 there ($27.99)…you get a $5 Gift Card AND a Target EXCLUSIVE FREE bonus disc featuring extended cast interviews. The Appeal Do you like the Weekly RoundUp? …and you probably like talking with other HT enthusiasts about your hobby and the latest new releases? PLEASE HELP SUPPORT THE HOME THEATER FORUM!!! Operating the HTF is not free for Parker and Ron. That is why there is advertising throughout the forum and there has been the occasional membership fund drive. THERE IS AN EASY WAY FOR YOU TO HELP…AND IT’S FREE OF CHARGE! If you would simply link to the Portal Page when you start your visits to the HTF, that act alone would bring revenue to the forum. While it would also be nice if you wanted to click on some of the advertisers’ links and check out their deals and sales (that form of “window shopping” would bring even more revenue to the forum), the simple act of landing on the Portal Page registers a “hit” or “impression” that creates revenue for the HTF. So, if you’ve been “sneaking in” to the HTF through links to your favorite thread or forum, please help out by taking an extra second of your time and landing first on the HTF Portal Page. THANKS!
