Fry's Ads 8/1-5 (Updated Daily): $9.99 HD DVDs; $15.99=Nim's Island

Here's the entertainment software listings from the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW), Houston (HOU), Chicago (IL), Los Angeles/Orange County (LA), Las Vegas (LV), San Jose/Silicon Valley (SJ) and Seattle (WA) Fry's Ad(s). These prices are valid only for the dates listed in the subject line.

The items listed below are as they appear in the Fry's B&M Ads. If an item is listed as "SJ only", for example, it could still be on sale at other locations (i.e. - Austin, Sacramento, San Diego, AZ, GA, IN, OR), but it only appeared in the SJ ad. However, since these ads are not available online, I cannot confirm them. If anyone knows of a website to view any further ads, please let me know.

i was in the IL Fry's last night and they are having a $9.99 HD-DVD "Blowout". All non-boxset HD-DVD's were $9.99. They have quite a large selection too.

also, i think its worth noting here that there is an 8GB Lexar MemStick Pro Duo for $50 and a $37 rebate on top of that making the cost $13!!

The Austin Fry's store has alot of HD DVD's as well (all on tables through out the store because the Blu-ray section has taken over the entire aile that used to be HD) but at $9.99 they aren't selling at all. It's very funny, half the price, twice the inventory and Blu-ray is still outselling HD DVD's. Once they drop them to $5-6 they should be able to move the inventory.

Vegas too. Where are they all coming from? I wonder if the studios won't let them be returned, and if so what happened at Best Buy, Circuit City and Target. Anyway, I think that $10 is pretty reasonable so I picked up 5 titles (Michael Clayton, Into The Wild, 2001, Full Metal Jacket and Galapagos). You can tell the inventory isn't moving when, in the midst of Batman-mania, there are like 100 copies of Batman Begins on the shelves.

Not since a few months ago- I'd already gotten Oceans 13 separately so didn't want to get a 2nd copy in the boxset. The Fry's in Sacramento right now has a bunch of the Mission Impossible sets for $29, and the "Complete" (not "Ultimate") Matrix Trilogy for $34. Batman Begins is $11.99, I'll get it if it drops below $9.99.

A couple copies of "The Road Warrior" had Best Buy price tags on them. Looks like Fry's is trying to get as much of the unsold HD-DVD stock as they can.

Now, all my HD DVDs are MARKED $11.99, but they were $9.99 this weekend. Are you sure that your ones didn't ring up $9.99 for the weekend sale?

They had a list of titles that were $9.99, not everything was on the list. I could have at least had them scan some other titles to see if they were less than $11.99 but I bought too many as it was anyways. Since I collect dead/failed formats I wouldn't rule out getting EVERY HD-DVD title eventually, but I'm still not made of money right now. Don't even have an HDTV yet- I got a player for 80 bucks a few months ago and it's in a safe place until I get something to hook it up to. In the meantime I can't pass up deals on new sealed HD-DVDs while they're out there.

The price was $34.99. I'd assume you have a bunch in LA; we sure did in Vegas.
