To my way of thinking, worrying about the deadline of the sale is ridiculous. At this point everyone has had ample time to make their choices and place multiple orders thanks to the abundance of codes available. If you haven't placed your order by midnight, you dropped the ball, not DDD- they did their job.

Actually, I tried that during an earlier sale when I had a problem with an order I placed- I ordered Fleetwood Mac Live In Boston during a 20 percent off sale on their site and they later e-mailed me to tell me it wasn't available. The next day it was back on their site. I e-mailed them and asked for the sale price ala the 20 percent sale and they said uh-uh.

Eh, I forgive 'em. I've gotten lots of great DVDs at good prices from them over the years.

Definitely. It's an 8 day sale for an online shop(ie- it never closes, no matter how late you get home from work)

I placed my first order last friday and received it yesterday, so 7 days, and that's with a holiday thrown in the mix.

Oh... I'm not worried about the deadline in the slightest. I was just trying to... um... introduce some logic to the earlier discussions. In fact, immediately after posting that, I replaced it with my last few orders... only to find the statement forever preserved by your quoting it.

I think they might be willing to do this if that customer purchased much from DDD in the past. There's nothing wrong with throwing your big spenders a bone once in a while.

I would love to order this dvd, but I've tried about 400 different ways of searching for it (even pasting the ddd code number for it; cutting & pasting the whole line from someone elses order; searching through all 3,982 results that come up with 'live 8'; 'live eight'''; 'live8'; etc etc)

Anyone have any advice?

When you're having trouble with DDD's site search, you can use this instead:

Last year I was vacationing in the Keys when I learned the sale was on. (Its in many newspapers including USA Today sold everywhere in the US.) First I called my daughter to place a couple of orders then I found a local library with public computers to complete my list. Its up to the customer to learn of the sale, not DDD's responsibility. (They do of course notify all on their rmailing list by email.)


I think you will find DDD will just say no on extensions.

If someone misses out, they will have to wait till next sale otherwise why set sale dates?

Thanks to reading through this thread and others, I added Interstate 60 to my purchase list. As a matter of fact, seven of the ten movies I ordered (Steele is for my girlfriend) I'm buying sight unseen. In hopes of providing others with additional choices, I've linkified all my purchases (hopefully correctly with the DVDTalk referral. My recommendation is Reefer Madness: The Movie Musical, a very amusing flick with catchy songs too.

----------

My Order

EARTH VS. THE SPIDER $ 4.80 1 $ 4.80
INTERSTATE 60 $ 5.56 1 $ 5.56
NOTHING $ 11.96 1 $ 11.96
DETOUR $ 4.79 1 $ 4.79
MATTHEW BLACKHEART: MONSTER SMASHER $ 4.79 1 $ 4.79
FREAKED $ 9.57 1 $ 9.57
THAT LITTLE MONSTER $ 5.92 1 $ 5.92
PRETTY COOL $ 11.98 1 $ 11.98
REEFER MADNESS: THE MOVIE MUSICAL $ 14.24 1 $ 14.24
PROFIT: THE COMPLETE SERIES $ 14.39 1 $ 14.39
REMINGTON STEELE: SEASON 2 $ 22.31 1 $ 22.31 (for my girlfriend)

Your Total: $110.31

That would be like asking to extend Black Friday sales past Black Friday....which wouldn't happen.

Did you use the same code each time? If the first order took, it should have said 'You have already used this code' or something...assuming their computers aren't too hosed.

re: cutoff time. Full final date, or least until 'store closing', or midnight website-time. Makes sense to me.

I tried a second code as the first one did say it was already used. Since my browser crashed I really had no idea if the order had taken. Ah well...I emailed CS and asked for the second order (duplicate) to be cancelled. We shall see. Thanks for the comment, I should have just waited a few hours.

My order finally shipped, except three titles: Female Yakazu Tale, Mask of Phantasm, and Brothers Quay collection, oh well I'm sure they'll ship soon; nine titles to get through anyway.
