? about BB weekly ad concerning DVD's

It has always been my understanding, and experience, that Best Buy's Sunday ad is good for prices from that Sunday thru the next Saturday (i.e., Sun May 12th - Sat May 18th), but that the DVD prices are honored the Tuesday they come out, thru the next Monday (i.e. Tues May 14th - Mon May 20th).

Am I wrong about this? I just tried to purchase The Others today, Monday, for $17.99 and they (three people, two being CSR specialists ) would only sell it to me at the new Sunday's (May 19th) ad price of $19.99. I swear, I have gone to BB on many occasions on a Sunday or Monday before the new releases come out on Tuesday, and have got the DVD for the previous weeks advertised price. Is there a new policey I am not aware of, or did I just run in to three nitwits at Best Buy?

If this type of question has been asked, and answered before, please direct me to the link. Thanks for any and all help.

The ad states that the prices are only good through Saturday. I've never heard of them extending the sale prices through Sunday and Monday on the new releases.

Yes, you are wrong.

The ad is good for Sunday through Saturday. New DVDs aren't released for sale until Tuesday, so you have to pick up the DVD sometime between Tuesday and Saturday.
