Today a big portion of my Columbia House orders came in. I received a total of 17 DVDs. My what a glorious day it was! What's the most you've gotten?

20 from some of my columbia house orders. The mailman stacked them in one pile on the porch. Sort of like a dvd jenga stack.

About 275 from the last DDD 20% off sale (after Hurricane Charley I'd waited for it to replace some of what I'd lost).

21 from DDD.com during 20% off sale

20: 17 from DDD.com during 20% off sale + 3 more used from BBV.

18 but that's cuz it was the Warner Bros Best Picture Bundle from Amazon.

I got 17 from DDD.com another time.

Most ever in a day was close to 30 from DDDVD's 20% off sale.

But I received my most treasured shipment of 25 Criterions in one day. ;)

You must not have been around here long. I have had numerous days over 10, not sure what the most was in one day. I got 70+ LD one day and that was the most movies in one day. I think I also got 4 or 5 DVDs and my LD player that day. Damn that was a good day.

Probably about 20 in the mail from the DDD 20% sale - and again the next day ..... and the next .... and the next.

The most I ever bought at a store goes back to 2001 when a place in lower Manhattan briefly had a bargain outlet for used stuff. I grabbed about 30 DVDs all priced at $1.99 each! About half were titles I wasn't particularly interested in keeping, and they all sold profitably on eBay.

When I first started my Hong Kong movie infatuation, I used to order them directly from HK. At about 30 at a time to hold down postage.

Only about 10-12. Any more than that and I'm worried someone will swipe them right off my porch.

At one point last year I purchased 10 all at once with a vacation cheque from my job. These werent just any ordinary movies either they would have been import's and TV shows. I think I spent about 400 dollars in all.

I am not sure, but I would estimate around 75 to 100 dvds in one day. However. my record is around 200 VHS tapes.

I think 10 or 12. And only because DDD doubled my order by accident. My order was 5 or 6 and I get two boxes of identical titles. I sent the other back, ironically, one of the titles had a bad disc, and the duplicate was bad as well. Major surface flaws. Delamimation or swirly marks galore.

Something like 10, that's nothing compared to some of you.... :(

The most I ever got in a day was 36 discs of Friends (Seasons 1-9). Take away the deal, and it is 7 single ones.

wow! that's actually kinda sad. how many did you lose in total? and, did you have insurance?

Al Padrino
03-23-05, 04:03 PM
I think I remember him saying that he did have insurance on them, so most, if not all of his expenses were covered.

23 - purchase

~300. I bought someones collection here in the for sale forums. I was like a kid in a candy store opening all 300 at once. Took me like 2 hours.

Bought like 13 titles at a pawn shop and went home to find around 20 from CH sitting there,so around 33 give or take a few.

Probably a dozen or so during the first DDD 20% off sale, but I get boxes of half a dozen or so from Geoff every few weeks. *nyah* :D

03-23-05, 06:44 PM
I may have a large library, but I've never bought more than 10 or 11 at one time. Thats what I also average per week....but I really don't keep track. My goal has been to get to 2,000 titles but I'm not going to go out and just buy a bunch of dvds just to hit the mark.But what happens if I get a special gift of a $1,000 tip on one of my jobs? OK....I'll spend it all on dvds....-wink-.

Too bad the most I've ever been tipped on one job is about $200.:D

Darryl
03-23-05, 06:45 PM
I bought 120 or so titles in a 4 hour period at a Chiller Theatre convention - most were imports!

gutwrencher
03-23-05, 06:53 PM
Darryl,


And I'm sure they were all killer titles too....you have great taste in horror.

Thats a lot of freakin' dvds, man. Nice.

About 20 from DDD,naturally-aspirated non-20% off though. :(

You remember correctly. It was 275 titles (closer to about 350 discs) which I got from DDD last November. Saved about $700 & got a lot of movies for way less than I paid for them as they'd gone through a couple of price reductions from when I'd originally bought them new. I actually came out pretty good though it's not something I'd like to go through again.

Deep Discount is cheaper. I just went into your collection and used the DVDAF price comparison for the first 10 titles...here's how they stack up:

2 Days in the Valley
Amazon: $9.97
DDD: $5.99

24 - Season 1
Amazon: $41.99
DDD: $32.56

28 Days Later
Amazon: $25.18
DDD: $14.64

50 First Dates
Amazon: $14.96
DDD: $13.91

Airplane!
Amazon: $11.24
DDD: $9.36

American Pie
Amazon: $11.98
DDD: $9.35

Anchorman - Giftset
Amazon: $29.99
DDD: $28.80

Aqua Teen Hunger Force - Volume 1
Amazon: $22.49
DDD: $21.05

Austin Powers - Int'l Man of Mystery
Amazon: $11.97
DDD: $8.04

Bad Boys II
Amazon: $23.17
DDD: $21.96

....cheaper across the board.

thats interesting info.....I guess your right about that. But I just looked at DDD's main page and saw that the new releases were quite higher than what i have found at amazon. so maybe ddd offers lower prices on the older dvds.

Last September I believe I bought 36 DVDs due to Tv-on-DVD releases (Alias, Angel, Everwood, American Dreams, Felicity, and Popular) all bought on the same day

Austin - there is no tax or shipping at amazon either.....compare the prices yourself.......amazon is cheaper than ddd is. How often does ddd have the 20% off discount?Well it sort of depends . . . Amazon sometimes does cheaper prices on new releases, but, honestly, I find Wal*Mart or Buy.com beat them out most of the time. But, for your average DVD, DDD and/or DVDPlanet usually have the best prices. Example:

<table border="1" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5"><tr bgcolor="#999999"><td><b>Title</b></td><td align="center"><b>DDD</b></td><td align="center"><b>DVDPlanet</b></td><td align="center"><b>Amazon</b></td></tr><tr><td><b>Sky Captain & The World Of Tomorrow</b></td><td align="center">$21.14</td><td align="center">$22.46</td><td align="center">$22.49</td></tr><tr><td><b>Mulan</b></td><td align="center">$21.14</td><td align="center">$22.46</td><td align="center">$22.49</td></tr><tr><td><b>Karate Kid Boxed Set</b></td><td align="center">$25.77</td><td align="center">$27.71</td><td align="center">$27.71</td></tr><tr><td><b>The Matrix: Ultimate Limited Collection</b></td><td align="center">$53.89</td><td align="center">$59.94</td><td align="center">$59.94</td></tr><tr><td><b>Akira Kurosawa: Four Samurai Classics (Criterion Collection)</b></td><td align="center">$71.96</td><td align="center">$64.96</td><td align="center">$79.96</td></tr><tr><td><b>Rules Of The Game (Criterion Collection)</b></td><td align="center">$28.76</td><td align="center">$25.97</td><td align="center">$31.96</td></tr><tr><td><b>Cloak & Dagger</b></td><td align="center">$6.00</td><td align="center">$7.49</td><td align="center">$9.99</td></tr><tr><td><b>Black Hawk Down (3-disc)</b></td><td align="center">$29.86</td><td align="center">$29.96</td><td align="center">$35.96</td></tr><tr><td><b>Saving Private Ryan (60th Anniv. Edition)</b></td><td align="center">$13.99</td><td align="center">$14.96</td><td align="center">$14.99</td></tr><tr><td><b>Trainspotting (Director's Cut Collector's Edition)</b></td><td align="center">$20.51</td><td align="center">$22.49</td><td align="center">$23.99</td></tr></table>
Those were a pretty random selection of movies and, as you can see, when it comes to non-new releases, boxed sets, and Criterions, The combination of DDD an DVDPlanet beats amazon almost every time. Although, I have to say, I am suprised at how much closer Amazon has gotten to many of DVDPlanet's prices recently.

Mr.Briggs
03-24-05, 03:01 PM
Day of release DDD usually drops its prices to be the lowest on the net. I usually don't preorder from them except for movies getting a 2nd or 3rd release (SE or something) which they often have the super low price as soon as it's listed such as the Star Trek SEs which are very low priced as soon as they are on DDD.

talemyn
03-24-05, 03:04 PM
Dang . . . you guys were faster. :(


:lol: Oh well . . . as for the DDD 20% off sales, I've personally only ever seen two and they were once per year for the last two years. They cause quite the little flurrying of buying sprees (I think I bought 30 in the first go around and that was a pretty small order compared to many).

I got 8 once on a trip to Best Buy and Target (as a birthday gift to myself). I also ordered 9 at once during last summer's DDD sale, but they didn't all come on the same day (between back-orders and such). I've also had 2 7 DVD days through Columbia House enrollments.
