Best Buy pretty much all the time. Rack up on Reward Zone points.

Pawn America
Cash N Pawn
Half Priced Books
Excel Pawn
Lincoln Pawn
GameStop
EB Games
Best Buy
Circuit City
Deep Discount
Wal Mart

I think 50% of my collection, and the majority of what I sell has come from Pawn America, though.

95% from Columbia House

The other 5% between:
DDD (usually just the 2 20%off sales, and maybe 1 or 2 other orders throughout the year)
BestBuy/Circuit City/Target (during sales only)
Used from a friend at work

The majority at BestBuy. I don't buy too many new releases anymore. I try to hold out until the price drops to $10. Unless its a box-set or comes with a bonus that I want.

The others:
Circuit City
Target
Wal-mart
Sam's
Amazon
Kmart
DDD

For no frills versions on release week, Walmart

When deals on big orders make sense, CH

For specialty and with savings in mind, DDD or DVDPlanet

For specialty and the desire to "touch" (savings not in mind), DVDPlanet storefront or Tower

Target or Circuit City. Was Best Buy before I moved, don't have one convenient now.

Probably Target more often as I can buy other stuff I need like food, cleaning supplies etc at the same time.

I tend to buy most of mine from Suncoast, because they are the only place locally that will carry obscure titles and British comedies (like Red Dwarf, Benny Hill, the new "Not the 9 O'clock News" etc...), and the b&w versions of seasons 1 & 2 of "Bewitched"/season 1 of "I Dream of Jeannie", when they are released.

Online: DDD and sometimes Amazon

New Releases/Hard to find titles: Best Buy (mainly for reward zone points and selection)

New Releases: Circuit City

Cheap catalog titles: Walmart usually is a dollar or 2 cheaper on most of these.

When I want to get a crapload of titles for very cheap: Columbia House.

90% of what I buy is used and comes primarily from Movie Gallery, Hastings, and pawn shops (plus Waterloo Video in Austin and a new little independent store here that is selling new titles, like "A History of Violence," for $10, and just about everything else for $5) --though I do pick up the occasional used DVD on Amazon with gift certificates.

Most of the new stuff I get comes from DDD. I make an occassional in-store purchase at Best Buy or Hastings, and occassional online purchases from DVD Planet, or foreign sellers like KoreanDVDs, YesAsia, DVDAsian, ExploitedDVD, Amazon (UK, France, Germany), etc.

Best Buy is still #1 for the 2 minute drill and a few new releases or cheap catalog buys. I'm there every Super Tuesday and stop by later in the week if I really need something and they have it. Nothing special about BB....it's just easy. Amazon I use once a week or every 2 weeks when I need something I can't find locally. Xploited.com I use for the great selection of imports and Tony is the king of customer service. You will find no better service, anywhere.

Finally, I love my local Borders. High price, check. Great selection, check. Easy, no $ upfront online ordering, check...and thats a huge . I order a few a week...they usually come in 5 days later, Dan sends me an email and I'm in like Flint. Or is it Flynn?

Oh yeah, I go to Walfart when I really need that big new release. I go at midnight so I can have it early and watch it in the wee hours of the mornin'. I just did that for Kong and Narnia.
