(DEAD) DDD 20% Off Sale Nov. 11-19 - Thread III

THREAD #III

MovieExchange has written up a nice little FAQ which you will find below, that should give you all some information and hopefully prevent the new folks from making threads and then feel bad because the veterans get on your case about making a thread.

Asking when the next sale will be is frowned upon. If you're a current customer of DDD, you will receive an email when the sale starts. If you're a subscriber of the DVD Talk newsletter, you will also get an email when the sale starts. Your best bet though is to watch the Bargains forum, because when it happens, you'll know. You will see a thread, and it grows, VERY quickly. You may also see or hear it advertised on local AM radio stations, and/or even national newspapers.

The sale usually happens twice a year and runs for a week and a half to two weeks. The last one was in June, the one before that was November of last year, but there's never any guarantee that it will take place. We don't get an official post until the day of or the day before the sale.

The 20% is taken off their current list price. Some newer items (for example, Sopranos season 5 during the last sale) are bumped up a few bucks beforehand, but the 20% off still makes for a great deal. You CANNOT use the coupon codes on pre-orders.

There are many different codes to use at checkout for the sale. There's a code for DVD Talk, as well as several others. When the sale kicks off, there will be a thread with people listing all the codes.

Each code can only be used once. You can use multiple codes, on multiple orders. The best bet is to build up a large order instead of ordering things as you think about them.

Another tip is to build your wish list in advance. Look what is on sale at the B&M's the week of the DDD sale, and DDD will usually match (on their webpage) the price, which you then will get an additional 20% off.

If you need DVD Suggestions you can always check out DVD Talk's Highest Rated DVDs (each have a handy link to DDD at the bottom

Ridicule on DDD

the movie Ridicule is listed as full frame on ddd--but B&N lists it as 2.35:1--does anyone know if Ridicule was released in full frame or is the info wrong...

If they don't have them, I've seen Near Dark for $6.99 at Kmart and Road Warrior in the $5.50 bin at Walmart.

I've been getting 2 confirmation emails for each order, and just realized they're coming from different addresses. Is this happening to anyone else? The first one comes from [email protected], and then another one comes about a half hour later from [email protected]. Whats up with that?

yes I got that this time as well. Looks like the first one is one confirming they got your order. And the 2nd one is your order verification with order # in it.

It looks like its just to combat people complaining that their order verification emails were taking too long to come. So they came up with an order confirmation email.

I'm hoping that I'll get my shipment today as well, since I placed my order about 20 minutes into the sale, and I only live a few hours away from the warehouse.

Thanks for the heads-up, I'll check my PO Box tonight.

I bought Mr. Show blind a year ago and shut it off after 1 1/2 episodes. Could not get into it. FWIW...

My first order is currently out for delivery according to UPS. Probably won't get it under 5-6 tonight. Damn UPS is sooo slow.

I also blind bought it earlier this year (Seasons 1&2), and got through it in a couple of days. I thought it was pretty good, but I wouldn't pay new prices for it. I found Season 3 used about a month ago for about $12.00, and hopefully can find the final season at some point for about the same price.

I got my first two orders in the mail today (boxed into one shipment).

I didn't know there was a $10 rebate in the 21 Jump Street season 2 box set but there was a card for getting $10 back on two 21 Jump Street box sets and I happened to also buy season 3 so that's an additional $10 savings now, cool!

Wow, already on the third thread. Cool. Anyhow, my orders say that they shipped yesterday and I ordered on the first day that the codes were active. Pretty good so far.

Can someone explain this to me...
Ok, why is it that i tend to receive boxsets(when i've ordered a season of television episodes) from DDD faster than a regular DVD?

For example, when i ordered BOOMTOWN, REIGN: The Conqueror, EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND SEASON 2, etc. i received them approx. 3-4 days from my initial order date

but

anytime i order a regular dvd(anything thats not a television boxset) i've received them 7-10 days later

I'm probably grabbing at straws here, but could it possibly have something to do with the price differential?........like, they're quicker to send off the things that cost more in order to leave the buyer with a smaller window of opportunity to cancel ced order

kevin smith question

i am thinking of getting chasing amy criterion and jersey girl with the 20% off coupon. unless anyone has heard anything about new special editions in the works for these?
i know the dogma se took a long time to come out after the barebones release, and with chasing amy 10th anniversary coming up i figured it would get similar treatment to clerks x and mallrats x.
jersey girl was blasted but i really loved it, and i own all the kevin smith dvds except for these.
please advise!
thanks in advance
