    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!
    I only include the titles I feel like including. 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. I have a lovely wife and a four-year-old son I'd rather spend time with. 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 I do!
    Note that Circuit City does not guarantee their sale prices in Hawaii.

    * Sorry if The Roundup was posted a bit later in the day than you're used to...I have out-of-town guests this weekend! [​IMG]
    * Note that both The Rookie and Queen of the Damned have versions on the market in Widescreen and separately in Fullscreen. Be sure to get the right one!
    * Borders prices are in the Roundup at their in-store sticker prices this time. Coupons for 15% off DVDs are in last week's issue of Entertainment Weekly magazine, or you can use this 10% off printable coupon.
    * Circuit City will take $20 off of The Sopranos Season 3 if bought on the same transaction as either Season 1 or Season 2 of The Sopranos.
    * Best Buy will take $25 off of The Sopranos Season 3 if bought on the same transaction as either Season 1 or Season 2 of The Sopranos. Or buy all three at once and save $40!
    * Best Buy states that all 5 covers to Reservoir Dogs will be available, and that in addition to the great price they will give you a $5 gift card to use on your next purchase. Note that Circuit City's ad states that not all covers will be available in every store. So if you care which cover you get, as well as saving a buck or 5, Best Buy is probably the place to go.
    * Best Buy will take $5 off instantly if you buy The Rookie and Remember The Titans at the same time.
    * Best Buy will take $5 off instantly if you buy High Crimes along with any of these: Men of Honor, Don't Say A Word, Courage Under Fire.
    * Target's ad shows The Sopranos Season 3 for $69.99, Schoolhouse Rock for $17.99, Queen of the Damned for $16.99, Reservoir Dogs or The Rookie for "Low Price", and High Crimes is also "Low Price", but you save $5 if you buy it along with either Where The Heart Is or Someone Like You.
    * K-Mart shows The Rookie for $19.95 plus you get a free 2-liter Coke product. High Crimes is $19.95, no beverages included. [​IMG]

    Anyone know of good prices for Return of the Living Dead?
    Edit - Looks like $9.99 at Best Buy. Hope they have it in stock.

    Dave,

    I realize you only list films you are personally interested in, and I understand that, but I am a bit surprised that you aren't interested in Rumpole of the Bailey.

    Thanks Dave,

    Looks like CC gets my business this week with The Rookie, Resevoir Dogs and maybe The Fog.

    Good work Dave

    Best Buy is also now advertising the $5 off with you buy both Jackie Brown SE, and Pulp Fiction Se, with each priced at $17.99 (all but negating the great deal last week), but BB did know about the $5 off coupon before last week (due to ad publication prep date).

    No. They are just acknowledging that there is a $5 coupon on the Jackie Brown SE DVD (to be used when you buy both DVDs at the same time). You still lost out on $4 of savings plus the free FDTD from last week.

    Reservoir Dogs for $15.99 + $5 gift card at best buy does it for me. was on the fence, but it's hard to argue $10.

    And thanks for the formatting change, looks great on my Mac now.

    I had a BAD experience at Best Buy today.
    I went to go get The Sound of Music 2-disc (going OOP) for $11.99 as advertised. I brought it up to the counter and it rang up for $22.99... I told the cashier about the ad and she looked at it and explained to me that "the $11.99 is too far from the DVD... not all DVDs in the circular have a price... it is just there to inform people that we have it"
    Me: "You are kidding right? Can I see the manager?"
    < Manager comes over... looks at ad... DEFENDS what the MORON cashier said >
    Needless to say... he gave it to me for $15.99 (which REALLY boggled me). I didn't really feel like arguing with these morons ($15.99 is still a good price for a $30 disc), so I will take the receipt to a different Best Buy and price match the same ad [​IMG]

    I'd like to go to BestBuy for Johnny Dangerously for $11.99 and also get them to pricematch CC on The Rookie at $14.99.

    Any chance I could do that and the $3 back-to-school coupon that I still didn't use?

    Hey Rob, I just noticed your signature tag -- I'm a UCF grad who works with a bunch of Penn State types here in PA. Any chance the Knights can pull an upset this Saturday?

    Okay, this is totally off subject [​IMG]
    Glenn, I think that UCF has a DEFINITE chance to be THE BEST in our conference in the coming years. The head coach recently stated that his goal is to get the team's funding up 2x in the next 5 years (which would be a big accomplishment). Heck, whatever happens... I am going to ALL the games! Go Knights! [​IMG]
    (If you ever lived on campus, I am in Sumter Hall in the Libra community)
    Ok... back to bargain hunting [​IMG]
