Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

I got a shipping notice for my Arrowverse season sets that were out of stock when ordered.

Yup. Got the ship notice for Flash S4.

Calling up to cancel the S2 of Supergirl I ordered by mistake was quick and painless.

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

I just realized they are charging tax now for everybody.

That means the 15% off coupons are now effectively only 8% off.

My purchasing by necessity was going to have to throttle back this year. This is really going to slam the brakes on for me.

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

Once again, DeepDiscount never fails to entertain. Probably won't be buying anything from them in a very very long time unless they compensate for that insane tax. They can afford it. They fucked over every media seller in the US anyway, so if I don't buy from them, I will not shit a tear. Yes, I said shit.

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

Not sure why you are blaming DD for charging sales tax. It's not money that is going into their pocket. Be angry at your state or the brick and mortar stores who complained about unfair competition. Must have happened as of the New Year. No tax charged on Arrowverse TV shows I purchased in December. I am sure almost all e-tailors will be charging sales tax to all states that have a sales tax before too long.

That's probably the end as well for me using Deepdiscount and the various Alliance outlets. Now that they charge tax for everyone, their prices are no different than Amazon even after coupons.

I've switched a lot of my media purchases in the past six months to Bullmoose. They've treated me right ordering both music and movies.

The mayor and some retailers here constantly whine about "lost sales/taxes" to internet vendors (and the mayor *always* brings up and blames Amazon who's been collecting sales tax for over 2 years). I guess they don't get that many of us are purchasing stuff from internet vendors that the local stores have stopped carrying. You don't support me, I don't support you.

And... yes. They started collecting January 1st.

If eBay and Amazon refused to collect tax...you really think this shithole of a legislative idea by the states would have passed. The states love it more than B&Ms. Why? Because the states don't have to worry about voter retaliation. The voters are in another state, paying their tax. lol.

Anyway, it's a good reason to avoid DD even more because of their pathetic sales and screwing over the smaller media sellers (some were/are still on DVD Talk). Just one more reason.

As much as I'm not fond of them, ebay was the last hold out, & they actively fought this. Apparently court decisions were the straw that broke the USA internet's back.

I'll check out Bull Moose. I believe my state has the highest sales tax in the USA (around 10.3%)

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

With the discount, DD has Bogart And Bacall Blu-ray collection for $31 shipped + tax. I humbly submit that is the best price I have seen for this set. 4 classic movies for less than $8 a piece. Sure beats Amazon and WB which is currently selling at $40.

update: just saw this at Bullmosse for $29!

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

Bullmoose seems to be one of the last remaining media retailers not tied to Alliance. The whole FYE/Secondspin chain appears to be on the verge of collapse, as they are closing down stores left and right at the moment.

It's not a pretty sight for media retailers in 2019. There's very little price competition left as Amazon doesn't care anymore, and Alliance more or less owns 85% of the remaining media outlets on the net. This comes on the heels of HMV probably going out of business in the UK, which is likely going to deal a crippling blow to music retail in Europe.

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

Alliance (aka Super D & before that Phantom) made a conscious decision several years ago to try to kill all net competitors (other than behemoth Amazon, & I THINK "Movie Mars" (another giant) is still not owned by Alliance, but they do have similar business practices.. They largely succeeded, & than raised their prices (surprise) . My business was one of the casualties, & I know of others much bigger than I was who suffered the same fate.

Sadly one of Alliance's very first acquisitions (I believe even before they acquired Phantom) was my favorite cut out Wholesaler, One Way.

Streaming has really contributed to the death of net retail in the last few years also.

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

Bullmoose shows Bogart & Bacall blu as a MOD. Is it really factory pressed like the blu's on WAC's site, or is it burned blu's?

If it's factory pressed, I'm going to bite at $29.

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

All WAC Blurays are pressed -- every single disc, 100% no exceptions from any month, release, title, or retailer.
I have the Bogart/Bacall individual releases and the same discs are in the Boxset.

I was about to order, & saw this,"MADE ON DEMAND

This Item Is Made On Demand: Could Take 2-3 Weeks For Delivery"

Even though I've also always heard that all WAC blu's are pressed, this concerns me. I just sent them an email asking for clarification.

Boilerplate language and meaningless in the context of burned/pressed. All WAC are labelled MOD and Bullmoose and some other sites have a std labeling they use for all MOD, but ...
I repeat -- 100% of every WAC Bluray produced since 2011 has been normal pressed and indistinguishable from WB/WV mass produced blurays. The packaging is a different issue -- the paper is cheaper, the printing can be questionable at times and almost look homemade, the discs are professionally pressed and have the same ID markings like every other Warner/Sony/Disney disc. I've tried to figure which Plant replicates the Allied Vaughn discs, but have never been able to get a clear answer. The ICPI and Disc ID are to be believed they come from teh same factories as the non MOD discs.

If it's going to be 2-3 weeks that's b/c it's OOS at the warehouse like every retailer has issues with. The fact that WAC/MOD/Allied Vaughn discs tend to made in small batches means they tend to go OOS more frequently until the next batch of pressed discs is ordered/replicated/restocked.

If you find a single legitimate poster who has a WAC Bluray that says it isn't pressed, I want to read the post and find out the rest of the story. 99% it was bought from Spain or off Ebay/Private Seller who tried to spin the MOD as 'they're all like that" instead of owning the fact they were a bootleg producer/seller.

FWIW this also applies to Sony and Universals new line of MOD BD discs from Allied Vaughn. Sony finally gave up on their SonyChoice BD-R due to horrible customer response and constant manufacturing rejects/discs that wouldn't play and moved their new discs to the know commodity.

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

Bullmoose Free Shipping is somewhere b/w $29-30 -- it says $30, but in reality it's a little lower
I looked at the Bogart BD set which has the MOD language, but also says it ships today. I'm not sure they have too many copies left since only one store lists it as in stock and usually while they
don't ship items directly from store stock, the same local warehouse tends to ship items and resupply the stores -- so I'm guessing it's very low stock and at some point will go store item only.

At 28.97 if you don't have a 2nd item they're going to ding you for shipping, but there are some $1 items to use as filler to save the $3 shipping charge. I've looked for 0.25-0.50 items but haven't found any when I've checked.
You can get a Bottle Opener or 'Classy Wrap' which actually can even be semi useful. There is a 0.50 Bottle Opener but I've never seen it in stock for shipping so maybe an store only thing

Do you know of a way to search by price? I'm not finding that option.

It there's sort of, but a bit of a workaround method. I always end having to find it hunt and peck

Click in the upper left menu and choose a subject -- Movies or Toys or ??. Then click under Genre (accessories or gifts) and a Price box pops up with an upper/lower limit. Once you enter that you can quickly go through all the categories.

If you do a Word Search/Advanced search you can also limit the prices that come up.
I don't think there is a way to sort a category by price

They also have a decent amt of used CD/Music/Movie as low as 0.97
If you knew you were going to order again you could always order a Gift Card which counts toward FS though I think $25 is the smallest GC.

That boilerplate language on Warner Archive is intended for their DVDs, the bulk of which are DVD-Rs. They occasionally release pressed DVDs, but more often than not they are DVD-Rs.

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

Bullmoose wrote back. Their answer was they don't know.
I decided to bite, as I've only seen factory pressed WAC blu's also. They gave me free shipping at $29.94 & NO TAX!
I've seen 3 different ship dates: 1 day on the website, 1 week in the email they sent earlier (not the order email) & 2-3 weeks on the order email.

Do they usually send a your order has shipped email with a tracking number?
