    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.

    I'll be adding to my Simpsons collection this week with season 10 (Bart head, to go along with the other heads on my shelves) and I'll finish my Saved by the Bell collection with the double-feature disc of the two made-for-TV movies (not in the RoundUp), which is in the $14.99-15.99 range at the usual suspects.

    Awesome not-well-advertised deal at BestBuy.com if you want both Muppets sets. Both sets for $20 a piece if bought together online. I'm just hoping it's still active Tuesday morning so I can use in-store pickup...

    A warning about the $9.99 Northern Exposure season 1 and 2 sales - these are the double sided discs that were later replaced by a combo "Season 1 + 2" single sided disc set. So if you get these double sided discs, best to test whether they are defective.

    HERE'S a pretty good deal at Amazon.com. 60% off off a select group of titles of celebrity film collections.

    Most of these are these rather recent release celebrity "three-packs" of the likes of Cameron Diaz, Colin Farrell, Denzel Washington, Natalie Portman, Drew Barrymore, Angelina Jolie, Michael Douglas, Jennifer Aniston, Nick Cage, Schwarzenegger, Clooney, Martin Lawrence, and Sandra Bullock.

    But there are also a couple of gems:

    For example:

    The Gary Cooper MGM Movie Legends Collection for $15.99 (The Cowboy and the Lady / The Real Glory / Vera Cruz / The Winning of Barbara Worth)!


    There are also collections featuring Chuck Norris, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Peter Sellers, Errol Morris, Sidney Poitier and Pam Grier.

    The Man With No Name Trilogy is listed on the page...but only at 25% off. [​IMG]
