The error message went away and all is good. Didn't even have to delete my cookies (but I'll remember that for future reference). I didn't notice a price increase but was Gilmore Girls S3 always $29? I thought it was more expensive.

Can you order pre-releases that are coming out next Tuesday tomorrow, or do you have to wait until Tuesday to place the order?

I've spent roughly $8 billion at DDD since they opened... and I didn't get a postcard.

I wonder what criteria they use to send them out? Oh well, great news!

I actually did the above side by side. It's extremely easy to be able to just hit the "buy" button at the bottom of the reviews and move on.

It would be nice to have a thread listing great movies and great finds for under $10. At that point, I'll pretty much blind-buy ANYTHING. This thread got me buying a couple of other DVDs last time, so I think it's a good idea to keep it.

You have to wait until Tuesday. This is not a big deal, as there are so many codes available. You can place a big order tomorrow, and then use another code on Tuesday to get the new releases.

The only problem is that they have them as preorder for 1/31/06. So no 20% off these.

I keep expecting to get a notice from DDD saying that I have exceeded their storage limit for wishlists but so far nothing.
holy crap.
Well, for what you have spent, or possibly *may* spend based on your wishlist, they are probably willing to provide a whole server to store your list on : )

One more question: based on people's past experience ordering from DDD, how quickly do you receive your orders if you use free shipping?

I've noticed a few items on my wishlist that are cheaper at Amazon, and I'm used to DDD having pretty much EVERYTHING cheaper, so I assume the prices went up in anticipation of the sale:

Arrested Development S2
Office Space SE
Married with Children S4

to name a few...

It varies. Last year, or this summer, I recall submitting a big (for me) order the first day of the sale and received it in less than a week, using free shipping. I ordered a single DVD at the end of the sale, which was back-ordered, and took a couple of weeks after they mailed it.

I don't know about the last 2 but Arrested Development S2's price is the same as they've always listed it for.

Well, when the sale started Sunday... if this one starts tomorrow add several days...

If I ordered on Sunday or Monday, I used to get my order within 2 days (I was in Ohio at the time). However, the later you order in the sale, the longer it will take due to backorders... could be a week to over a month.

It's probably a good idea to mention sooner than later to use the DVDTalk link to DDD when you make your order:

During the last sale, they were upgrading bigger orders with free shipping to UPS. I placed a $300 order with USPS Priority Shipping that got upgraded to UPS, and a second order of about the same amount with free shipping that also got upgraded to UPS. I think the larger orders will get upgraded because UPS has better tracking and insurance systems in place, and therefore if the order gets lost, they have a better chance of recovering their losses for only a small amount more paid in shipping on their end.

I know that office space is the same price as it was earlier, still showing for 14 and some change for me.

In the last hour Scrubs s2 has gone from 27.89 to 31.79. Nearly a $4 difference. Now, with the discount it'll still be decent (around $25) but I hope I don't see too many more changes like this.

I am disappointed they raised the price for The OC Season 1 so much. I won't be buying that now.
