As far as I can tell SuperD purchased Alliance -- one article called it the Minnow swallowing the Whale since Alliance was roughly valued 4-5x SD in 2013. I'm not sure how all the business details work, but apparently the head people at SuperD stayed at the helm and maybe they took the Alliance corporate name since it was more well known? I'm sure some of the Alliance people stayed on in high positions, but maybe as VP or minority Board Members.

It's so hard to figure out who's who since both Alliance and SuperD kept their websites. I remembered the original articles of SuperD buying Alliance and until yesterday I obviously thought they had kept their name. I kept seeing the name Alliance being used though including on some of my CC and USPS tracking names, but figured that was just leftover.

As best I can tell now Alliance Ent. disappeared and then SuperD+Alliance became Alliance Ent LLC under a new corporate banner and registration. My legal and business knowledge of the how/why is at best pretty minimal

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

They own many media storefronts on the Net outside of Amazon, and I've heard they are Amazon's #1 media supplier.

They seem to have had a business plan of monopolizing media retail and raise prices just below what Amazon sells them at.

Yep, & to repeat the original plan was to sell just below wholesale pricing at retail. Assuming the volume of sales enabled a profit; they've been quite successful.

I'm offered these $5 off $25 deals from time to time and I almost never take them. You have to hit $30 to get the free shipping (after the coupon) and then the amount of your order dictates how much of a "deal" you're actually getting. Usually I just wait for an across-the-board 15% deal.

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

I received the $5 off minimum $25 order from Deep Discount. So, I placed an order for "Willard," "Jewel of the Nile," and "Psycho Circus: 3 Rings of Terror." I try to keep the purchase as close to $30 as possible to make the discount matter. The order was roughly $28 shipped...not bad at all! It's still an awesome deal. If you bought the same items from Amazon it would cost a bit more.

I thought seriously about a Kino Noir box that would have been 1/2 price, but I'm pretty broke so I passed.

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

Would you settle for 10% off orders of $35+?

Summer Sale code is POINTBREAK

Are the days of a real, proper sale from DD are permanently over? With their prices running so much higher than just a few years ago, without a decent sale I just can't find a reason to shop with them any more.

They've run some incredible sales...In the last year or so we have seen two Olive Buy 1 Get 1 sales...that first sale was insane...the prices were awesome. I also have used their 15% off promos to add a number of catalog titles to my collection at prices less than $5. And as many have observed, you can get better Shout Factory pricing via Deep Discount using the codes than Amazon or Shout Factory's so-called sales. I spend quite a bit with Deep Discount....It's Amazon that is total joke.

When they run a 15% off code there's usually some good deals to be found. But it's definitely not like the old days where they would have their coupon and pretty much everything on their site was a good price.

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

Good grief...Amazon used to have incredible pricing and service. Now you have to pay a ransom to get anything in a timely manner and you can no longer depend on the quality of the merchandise because there are so many sources. The nature of the industry has changed across the board...or hasn't anyone noticed? Among current outlets for media, I would put Deep Discount and Best Buy way ahead of Amazon on quality of product, pricing and service. Just like Walmart, Amazon uses a price-match strategy rather than offering any incentives of their own. I don't buy from them unless I absolutely must ...same goes for Walmart. At least with Deep Discount I do not have to pay tax and shipping is free with $25 minimum purchase. Amazon tried to nearly double that minimum but quietly relented because sales were impacted. You keep feeding the Amazon monster and you won't be able to afford anything as the competition shutters their doors. I would strongly suggest using alternate sources for media to keep the competition healthy. Don't reward Amazon's ethically-challenged practices.

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

I mostly use Deepdiscount for CDs these days. They are still cheaper than Amazon when coupons come up.

The best media deals are now usually had on eBay when the site runs one of their $15 off $75 coupons. Keep a list of media items on eBay and wait for one of those to show up if you really want to get items cheaper.

Super D's goal was to price cut to the point of driving small-middle sized retailers out of business. They largely succeed a couple years ago. Notice how BB's prices climbed soon after they killed off Circuit City? Same concept.

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

I've been buying from UK dealers lately, but just skimmed DeepDiscount and a few things caught my eye. The discount brings some Flicker Alley titles like Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Most Dangerous Game below $25, which I think is pretty good. Also, the first three Ren and Stimpy sets fall below $8 each.

How terrible are they about canceling back ordered items?

I'm a bit better than 75% on getting them, but if they don't expect to be able to ship within 3-4 weeks they're almost predictable. I've had them cancel a few days later when a re-stock isn't expected and then stock shows up 1 week or two later so it can be frustrating

Just go into it expecting a cancellation and it's a good surprise when it ship. If it's an excellent deal and you don't want it anytime soon I can't really see a downside to placing an order with a CC since the temp cahrge fall off in a few days. If you're using a Debit or Paypal where the funds are held pretty much until the cancellation then maybe not such a good thing

Thanks, I ordered two copies of Batman Mask of the Phantasm (which doesn't come out till the end of next month), so I'm hoping this "backorder" is not truly the case

Maybe I'm confused -- you ordered something backordered along with the pre-orders of Mask of the Phantasm?

If you have a backordered itme and a preorder, then usually DD will ship the backorder as soon as it's in stock rather than waiting.

No, I ordered two copies of Batman, and once the order was completed it said back ordered

OK -- that may be different and less meaningful. I think that is just the way DD pre-orders get labeled and doesn't actually have the same meaning as backordered items already released.

I pre-order so littel from DD or anywhere else honestly that memory does play tricks from the distant past of 6 months ago.

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

Preordered Mask of the Phantasm and then added Queensryche: Mindcrime at the Moore to get free shipping . $25.11 out the door. Only been saying I should get that later Blu-ray for about 6 years, lol.

Re: It's Another DeepDiscount 15% sale

There was a time when I spent $$300-400/yr at DD, back when they had twice a year 50% off sales. I was just trying to think when the last time was that I ordered from DD (just one item), and I believe it was maybe 4 years ago. For a while I would dig through their "sales" and inevitably find nothing I wanted. Wasted quite a few hours that way. Then I unsubscribed. Don't miss it in the least.

I'm glad folks in this thread are still doing OK with DD. But for me, I just don't care to spend any more time hunting futilely for deals. In fairness, the Zon isn't much better these days. The only online source I buy from regularly is Family Video. Too bad about Go Hastings.
