Buy 1 Blu-ray from the select list and receive 1 of equal or lesser value free. When purchasing multiple items you will be charged for the higher priced items and those of equal or lesser value will be at no charge. Enter Promotion Code BLRLABOR. Offer Expires 9/6 Noon CST

Order in September and receive your order in February. Just kiddin', they are actually shipping pretty fast on most stuff now.

This was the infamous "glitch" sale a year ago where many of us were able to get a lot of Blus for cheap prices well beyond the scope of the intended offer. They did indeed take forever to get fulfilled, but most of them were. I doubt if lightning can strike twice, especially with the new owners, but perhaps there will be some genuine deals regardless and I look forward to seeing them posted here.

A cursory glance at that list shows a lot of titles that barely have any discount - even with the B1G1, they might be cheaper at Amazon.

Wish Amazon would match, I have a bunch of credit over there. But I guess I am down for some 3d titles.

Yeah -- literally nothing I want on the list, and the prices on a lot of it are easily matched by Amazon and/or several B&M places. Still kinda peeved they didn't include me in the $10-off coupon they recently sent out, too, as I definitely would've used it.

I'll go through the list but unless I am wowed by something, I'll pass. Last year was just too much for me with having it prat on for several months before I got anything. I'll buy here and there from them but not during crazy sales. I rather stick to my usual diet of Amazon, Hastings, DVD Empire and B&N.

The only four I'm tempted by are "The Illusionist" and "Another Year" (for $28.79) and "Incendies" and "Of Gods and Men" (for $30.87). I haven't seen these Sony combo packs drop below about $20, so I'd save about $10 buying them here...

Or I may just wait for the holidays when all of these will probably drop down to $14.99 or less.

From what I could tell, that would probably be the best deal. I noticed Piranha 3D. I think I might have enjoyed that one in a completely mindless way enough to buy it, but I'm not sure if I could find another one on that list for the freebie.

That is actually the only 3D title I own that I did NOT buy the 3D version of, because it doesn't contain all of the extra features that the 2D BD has.

I may bite on Twilight Zone S4/S5 since I don't have those yet. $42 each isn't too bad... I know Amazon had S1-4 for $42.49 recently, but S5 was not included...

You can tell I haven't done any investigating into the 3D Blu-ray; I didn't realize it didn't have the same extra features.

I still haven't officially gone 3D. I have a 3D-capable projector, but I need to buy a converter box for it. Argh! I've been keeping my eyes open for deals on 3D Blu-rays for when I do get that box, though. Might as well already have a couple handy when I get it.

I assume you mean 2-dimensional and not 2 Disc, because I don't see a 2 Disc at Amazon. I happen to have both. Bought the non-3D at Blockbuster and got the 3D at Best Buy with a PM at Fry's and 5.00 coupon. I really like this movie and was thinking of keeping both, but this would clinch it.

some of the 14.99 titles would be around 6 bucks, so not too bad. About like getting them at a B&M for 5 bucks with tax. I'm sure these won't be the lowest they will be, but this is still a decent deal.

Their system is wacky (at least for me) right know. When I enter the second item to my cart it deletes the first. When I try to check out it shows an empty shopping cart. I'll try again later.

The only combo I'm considering is Baron Munchausen and Starman for $7.78 a piece. I'm still somewhat lukewarm on those prices, so I'll probably pass.

Also, the first two seasons of Breaking Bad would be less than $13 each with the deal. That might be the cheapest I've seen them.

I need an emoticon with Robby the Robot's flailing arms saying "Danger Will Robinson"...

The B1G1F sales were the catalyst why I stopped doing business with DD. Back during "the glitch" last year I put in a few orders, and shockingly many months later I got most of the titles I wanted at some very good prices... BUT DD screwed up 1 of my orders by canceling the free item and shipping the full price item because they claimed it was "out of stock" (it magically reappeared on the site later). So I vowed never to do another B1G1F sale from DD again because there's just too much risk of them canceling the free item. I wasted lots of time trying to contact them to learn that (at least back then) it was impossible to get anyone on the phone (and I wasn't willing to wait longer than 90 minutes) and that they ignored their emails until maybe the 4th email when I threatened to get my credit card company involved. No discounts on BDs are worth that potential hassle.

So all ye who enter the DD B1G1F sale, proceed at your own risk.

Ditto. Deep Discount did the same to me and cannot be trusted. They refused to refund me correctly in the same sale. They are not responsible with their customers' information either. They wanted me to provide a fresh credit card to their customer service for the refund, because they didn't know how to work Paypal, despite managing to give me the wrong refund amount a week before with it. Shop at your own peril.

I'm with Manzana and VivaFriend on this one. Unless it is a spectacularly good deal, as last year's glitch certainly was, I'm pretty much done with DD. The last order I got was packed so badly the shrink wrap had been torn off the Blus in the shoddy packaging. Plus they never sent me that $10 coupon others got. Plus they now charge shipping for many orders and I get charged tax in California. Plus their new customer service is worse than the old customer service.

They can burn just so many bridges as far as I'm concerned.

I bought T-Zone S4/5 for 84 bucks. At $41 each, after factoring in CB, I find that acceptable... That completes my collection, so now I can have my marathon...
