I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp[/COLOR]. 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!

Note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the [COLOR= rgb(255, 0, 0)]RoundUp[/COLOR]. 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 and Patrick! I'll wait for Matt's review on Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and I'll wait for Bull Durham and Escape from New York to get closer to $12 to pull the trigger. On the fence about Kick Ass....The trailer looked pretty good.

That just pisses me off. I picked Batman up at Target yesterday for a (good) price of $19.99. GGGGRRRRRR!

Thanks for the fix (and everything) Mike! Hot Tub Time Machine is also very tempting at that price, but I think I'm going to wait until it hits $14.99 or under.

I actually caught their website in the midst of their fixing the error/deal this morning. The search results page for the title was still showing the $6.99 price, but if I tried to add it to my cart or look at the individual item's page, it was reflecting the regular price of $24.99. So, printed off the search results page with the $6.99 price and price-matched at Wal-Mart with no hassles. Had actually stopped at a Fry's and a Best Buy yesterday to pick it up, but both places were sold out of almost all their copies with the exception of a few 2-disc DVD editions left at the Best Buy, so it worked out nicely with this morning's deal.

Going back to last week's conversation, the BSG complete series set (BD) is apparently on sale big at Amazon through Friday. I can get it shipped back to Michigan and pick it up in a few weeks when I'm there for a wedding. And I miss the sales tax. :)
