It depends on the title (and varies from store to store and also from week to week).
Currently at BestBuy.com some of the titles are priced at 24.99 (those with $28.99 list price), others are $29.99:

Walmart's prices are usually better, but Walmart doesn't always have them on the release date (at least mine doesn't).

no they are 19 to 25 at Walmart.


Interesting...Our Walmart in Reno does not even have them..This STORE is the lastest and Greatest Walmart model superstore too...you need a go cart to get around! I checked out their CD music cd's and they are just as bad price wise as Tower records!

NOW IF THE ITALIAN JOB (MINI COOPERS) COMES OUT IN HD...I MIGHT JUST.......:D

AND THEIR PRICES ARE NOT THAT GOOD! They have begun taking advantage of people's perception of them being low priced and actually have HIGHER prices on electronics than many local stores! I bought a pair of FRS Radios there for $50
(for a car Rally)...Happened into a Costco and saw the newest model 4 steps up (SAME BRAND) for $50! WALMART ONES WERE IMMEDIATELY RETURNED..They asked me why and I told them they had ceased to be competitive...the manager did not act surprised either...A MGR for $50 return! No quibble return policy my butt!

This is typical corporate BS...This is a fairly affluent area, So it's rape and pillage time! You even have to watch yourself at Costco these days!

Ahhhh...they American dream ...UP IN SMOKE....WE ARE A NATION OF SHEEP!:mad:

Well, I live a mile off the highway to Deadman's Gulch, AZ, so I do a lot more online shopping than I do I do at Bricks & Mortar shops. No Netgrocer out here yet, so it's till 20 mile trips into the nearest Safeway . . :p

For me the best thing going for HD DVD's is Amazon.com. Unforgiven & Blazing Saddles are $18.99, Training Day $19.99, Van Helsing is $24.49. But, after your 3rd HD DVD purchase (or purchase of a HD DVD player), you get an additional 10% off all HD DVD purchases for the rest of the year. And, I took their 3 month Free Trail of Amazon Prime, so I get free 2 day shipping, no minimum purchase. I never used to buy many DVD's from Amazon; I could usually find them elsewhere for less. But I've bought every HD DVD (about 10 so far) from Amazon, except for the free 2 HD DVD's that came with my XA1 from VE.

BB rapes you, but you just do not feel it as badly (they must use a better brand of Vasoline:D )as with Compusa!!!

NEWEGG.com for all my electronics:D
