Gold Member Deal of the Week (Monday) - Saints Row 2 DLC: Ultor Exposed (560 points)
Retail North America (Tuesday) - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (regular edition, Hardened Edition, Veteran Edition, Prestige Edition, the regular edition that comes with a special console with a 250 GB HDD - and there are fancy controllers out this week too I guess, not really my thing but hey, have at it) - Dragon Ball: Raging Blast - Final Fantasy XI: Ultimate Collection - Hasbro Family Game Night; I guess this is cheaper than buying all the games individually on XBLA, but really, do you want all of them?
Rock Band DLC (160 points each or 440 points for the White Stripes pack, Tuesday) - The White Stripes - "Dead Leaves and the Dirty Ground" - The White Stripes - "Girl, You Have No Faith in Medicine" - The White Stripes - "Icky Thump" - The Damned - "Smash It Up (Part II)" - Kasabian - "Club Foot"
XBLA (Wednesday, not sure about price but I bet 800 points each) - 0D Beat Drop - NBA Unrivaled - Encleverment Experiment
Guitar Hero 5 DLC (160 points each or 440 points for the pack, Thursday) - Lenny Kravitz - "Let Love Rule" - Lenny Kravitz - "Lady" - Lenny Kravitz - "Fly Away"
Lips DLC (Friday) - something, I'm sure, but they won't tell me what and I bet you don't care anyway

Scrabble's been a great investment, as the Future Mrs. False often has family over and this becomes a pretty fun way to kill time, especially with the Music Library going in the background. But with the obscene prices for the rest of the games, I wasn't about to put down $10 on Sorry. If the disc comes around the $30 price range, I'll heavily consider it.
Microsoft already came on record and said the 250 GB HDD coming in the Modern Warfare retail kit would not be sold separately, but I'm betting that doesn't last. Too many Rock Band/Guitar Hero aficionados like myself are desperate for the extra space.
Additional Rock Band DLC (out now; 80 points each with no discount for the bundle) - SpongeBob SquarePants - A Day Like This - SpongeBob SquarePants - Employee of the Month - SpongeBob SquarePants - Ridin' The Hook
I'll post this in the Wii thread too once I get around to posting the Japanese WiiWare/VC releases. I assume there's no hurry.
To reiteratie what astrobstrd said, it is in fact entirely possible to get over 100,000 points just manualing. In fact, you will have to do so to complete one of the pro challenges in the later levels. Practice practice practice.
