CompUSA B&M Clearance DVDs YMMV

I was at my local CompUSA and found a few decent DVDs on clearance.
YMMV, but it might be worth checking out.

Anaconda $5.00
Anacondas $5.00
Hook $5.00
Mona Lisa Smile $5.00
Once Upon a Time in China Trilogy $5.00
Princess Diaries 2 $5.00
Radio $5.00
Spider-Man (2-Disc Special Edition) $5.00
Stepford Wives $5.00
Underworld (2-Disc Special Edition) $5.00
Resident Evil: Apocalypse $10.00
In Living Color Season Two $20.00

EDIT: Forgot to mention that my CompUSA also still had the 2-Disc sets of The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou marked at $14.99.

Wow, yeah I picked up Wonderland 2-disc edition for $5 at my CompUSA today, that was nice. They had a few more like Planet of the Apes but it was pretty slim pickens.

I'll have to check out the store just a few blocks from me and see if they have anything worthwhile - not that I need another place to spend money right now ....

The ones I saw were in a "manager's special" bin located at the front of the store (had a sheet of paper attached that said "all DVDs in this bin will ring up at $5 at checkout"), it seemed like they were getting rid of a bunch of stuff throughout the store. I went to a different location and they didn't have any DVDs in the bins, so this is probably not at every one, and I'm sure titles vary from location to location, but you might get lucky.

I stopped by my Comp USA and they had a bin of $7.99 titles (titles like Total Recall and The Running Man, I think, which you'd find in Walmart's $5.50 bin), but no DVDs for $5. I also saw the Silverado Gift Set there for $9.98.

Each of the clearance DVDs in my store (Carousel Center- Syracuse, NY) had a yellow circle clearance sticker on them that had the original price, the clearance price and the SKU number. They weren't in a bin there, they were just put along the top of the regular DVD display against the wall. I got one each of the ones that I wanted, which were the only ones in most cases. I got one of everything in my first post except Anaconda, Hook and Spider-Man (I had those already) and RE: Apocalypse (didn't feel like getting right away for $10, plus there were a lot of those there).

Can anyone else verify Life Aquatic 2-disc as being 14.99? I call the CompUSA's around here and all they do is look on their own web site and say "no sir, it says here 19.99".

That was the price the week of release - don't know if they raised it or if it turned out to be a pricing error.

Didn't appear to have any on sale at my local CompUSA either. Oh well, more money to waste at DDD.

Nothing at the Columbus Circle store here in NYC, either.

DDD wins gain.

Here at our CompUSA, Life Aquatic rings up as $19.99, but the shelf tag still reads $14.99. I simply pointed out the lower price that was listed and the clerk gave it to me without hesitation.

The second poster, gribalski, also found $5 deals. I haven't looked. $19.99 sounds like a more typical CompUSA clearance price. I often see videogames there, clearanced for $50 (generally games that are $20 or less at most other stores). I sometimes think the same guy sets clearance prices for both WalMart and CompUSA.
