We will email you soon with an estimated delivery date. You will not be charged for this item until it is shipped."

and this morning it is out of stock on their site.did i buy it in time or do they usually not update if it was instock or not.im just wondering if i have to wait till they restock on it.

If it is truly out of stock, the money will not be removed from your account. It is just a temporary hold that will be released in a few days. DD will honor your deal once they get more stock. And unless it is an out of print item, they are usually good at getting more stock in. You could call their 800# to see if they have a date for when they will have more stock, but I'm not optimistic that they have this information.
But I can state that I have ordered items from them that are out of stock, only to have them ship 2 days later. So I'd give it a few days to see what happens...

I think the first post has been kept updated, but I see where it says "last edit: ..."

I don't believe there are any $5 off < $25 codes known at this point and, imo, not likely to be. $25 is pretty much the smallest threshold I have seen there.

I made two separate orders on the same day with different $5 codes, and they shipped them both in the same box. Nice way to save on postage, DD.

I ordered Lost Season 5 on Blu-ray for $31.99 excluding the cashback. Amazon has it for $50.

What black magic was this? Shows up at $49.89 when I just looked.

They probably ordered the DVD edition by mistake.

Yeah you are right. The blue cover confused me and I thought it was the BD edition. I hope it was black magic:-)

25 things on my wish list, and even with the sale all of them were cheaper somewhere else. I guess I am not biting on the sale this time.

Made my first purchase, the Ruby Spears Superman set and Metalocalypse Season 2, $29.14 after the $5 off coupon. Just a little cheaper than Amazon.

I was going to place another order to make 3 total... but amazon has taken all my money with the absolutely great Lightning (and other misc.) Deals so far.

DD = $41.84 (and half of that was CDs. Neither purchase would have been made without the $5 coupons)

Amazon = $126.90 (*ALL* DVDs)

Current DD price for what I purchased from amazon = $254.73

Just used that coupon to pre-order the 3rd season of Star Trek on Blu-ray for $47.89, thanks.

Wow, this is awful. Me and my wife usually spend $500 - $1000 between us at Christmas on DD. Not this year.

I placed two orders today using two of the $5 coupons, it came to a little over $40

out of curiosity I compared the prices to amazon's current prices, all up I saved $31.32, huge difference

Re: DeepDiscount 40% Off MSRP Sale 11/13/09-11/29/09
 
Don't understand all the complainers. Using the coupons almost every current DVD and Blu-ray is cheapest at DeepDiscount (outside of some of the Black Friday deals obviously).

Sure, you can no longer order dozens of items and be confident of DD being the cheapest during their sales, but give credit where it is due and realize that DD is still a place to save $. aAd seriously, to expect them to always be the cheapest and take 20/25% off twice a year was unrealistic. We were lucky to have it as long as we did.

Re: DeepDiscount 40% Off MSRP Sale 11/13/09-11/29/09
 
^Yes, this is true. Had amazon not had some really good BF/Lightning Deals this week I'd have placed 2-4 more ~$20 orders at DD. While I saved a *lot* at amazon compared to DD there are quite a few items I'd not have purchased at this time outside the amazon sales. So while I got excellent prices/deals it's a totally different set of product coming in than what I'd have purchased from DD.

But I still expect (count on?) the 20%-25% off sale, even though it's a bit unrealistic, and make other purchases based on anticipated prices during these sales. Considering the current sale I don't think I'll be doing as much of that suspecting that it's possibly the new model for the bi-annual sales. Even with the prior % off sales I'd compare prices before ordering, and regularly got caught with much desired items going OOP between sales while I was waiting to save a buck or two. Many of these titles never showed up on the OOP titles thread (or I just missed seeing them). Because of this I've gotten to where I'll just go ahead and order titles I feel are "nich" or "cult" items just in case.

I just tried using the codes on the first page and all shows up as expired? Is anyone else experiencing this? Thanks!

It appears all the codes are now expired which seems a pretty stupid thing for them to do on Black Friday.

Codes all expired ? ? Well, guess I won't be placing that last order I was considering.

I still haven't received my order that shipped on November 13th. I understand that by choosing free shipping I sacrifice speed, but it says "5-10 business days" and it has been twelve

This is the 9th business day today, Monday will be 10 (not saying it'll get there then anyway, since it's media mail).

I was going to place 1 more small order using one of the last two codes submitted but both have expired. Oh well.

I've only placed one order (which I still haven't received). I was planning on doing a few more but the Amazon sales have been distracting me. If the coupons have expired now, then I guess I won't be coming back for sure.
