Oh, boy. It seems that the reason I could use "SAVE" again was that they were cancelling my order! I re-enterred my order with "SAVE", and now "SAVE" doesn't work on a further order.

I really, really hate to go to DeepDiscount after an incident in June, but I have to get Christmas shopping done.

Well this rerelease isn't any sharper than the old version so I wonder just how marginally better a BluRay would look.

Did you try SALE?

Although I didn't have any luck with it, another poster mentioned s/he was told by an employee on the phone to use "custserv".

Yup, I was looking at what other Blu-Rays were coming out during the sale & figured I'd give the code a shot on my order & it worked.

Someone should make a thread during these sales, for what DVDs you bought based on someone elses order list, & in that thread you should put the persons name next to the titles you bought. I'm looking through this thread at people's list, & several times I'm like "shit, I forgot about that movie, got to place another order".

Same here. When I saw you had Paris Je T'aime, I went and ordered it. I noticed at DVDPlanet it seems to work on some pre-orders. For example, it works on Tropic Thunder but doesn't on Wall-E. It looks like it doesn't work on Wall-E because it shows "pre-order" next to the title in the cart.

For the record I ordered:

Catalog: FLP011626 (new)
Title: Paris, Je T'aime
Qty: 1
Price: $12.16

Catalog: PRD039444 (new)
Title: Tropic Thunder
Qty: 1
Price: $22.47

Catalog: LGE021674 (new)
Title: Monster's Ball
Qty: 1
Price: $15.72

Catalog: HBD039457 (new)
Title: Band of Brothers
Qty: 1
Price: $52.48

Total: $102.83

Why would you order a Criterion from DD? They're always cheaper at Planet - The Small Back Room is $27.96 before the discount.

For one, I couldn't find it at DVD planet, didn't come up in the search engine or in the criterion list. But even if they do have it, the $ difference doesn't matter. The long Goodbye is $4 cheaper at DD, plus I couldn't find the silencers at DVDplanet. Add in free shipping, whereas the DVDplanet free shipping took over 1 month to get to me last time, DD was more worth it for me with this order.

Suspicous? disappearance of titles from DVD Planet

That was my plan, but all of the sudden, from yesterday to today, a whole bunch of titles simply disappeared from DVD Planet, titles like: Sanjuro, Yojimbo, and the Seven Samurai. No "out of stock" or anything, just completely disappeared, like they've been taken to Gitmo or some place. Excuse me for being suspicious, very suspicious.

Other CC titles like Twenty-four eyes don't show up in a search OR under the Criterion Collection. One, Brand on the Brain, shows up in a search, but not under Criterion Collection.

Also, as I write this, I'm going back and checking and finding these titles are now showing up, so apparently it is a problem that has been, or is in the process of being, corrected.

From DVD Planet:

$15.72

Total: $199.20


From DD:

1 LGE080062 DVD : CHRISTMAS TOY MOVIE, THE $ 7.73

I'll probably pick up Wall-E when it comes out and fight the urge to get anything else. Relatively low orders for me this sale, although I wish I would've picked up a few more things during the DD Criterion sale to save a few more bucks.

Is there free shipping on DVD Planet? I didn't see that option anywhere, and I want to order "Bottle Rocket," since it's cheaper there than on DD.

Great sale. I knew months ago that I needed to be sending them some trade stuff that had good trade-in quotes, but (as usual), I procrastinated.

I still have some store credit, though, and I'll be ordering some Criterions.
