John, it's been awhile since I bought cases for my online business; but if memory serves, if you buy a case form a number of internet sites you'll be way under $1.00 ea. probably closer to .40 each. On the other hand, I do know that when the USPS started cracking down on cases being sent media mail it did cause shipping to go way up.

Another option that has worked for me is putting an add on Craig's List that you'll pay .xx per case in bulk. Some people treat DVD's like they do cd's & throw away the cases.

Done that - they're the cheap cases found in XXX titles; often brittle. And the nubs can easily break.

Should know, I have an adult collection. *wink*

I buy my cases from DT sales since I know which studio have the good ones. Otherwise, it's a mix bag. I'm not a fan of Magnolia Home Entertainment or Cinedigm Entertainment cases. I do like Artisan Home Entertainment, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment cases. Solid walls, not those eco-cases with good nubs.

And... to add new movies to my collection, blind buys feel good at a buck each. Plus DVDs I wanted the first time around, but were more than I was willing to spend.

On the other hand, I do know that when the USPS started cracking down on cases being sent media mail it did cause shipping to go way up.
I've felt that, many of my eBay purchases have been bumped up, postage-wise.

Some people treat DVD's like they do cd's & throw away the cases.
I've done that from some sellers on eBay; 'like new' - yeah, in what universe is that considered like new? Spent too much for a ton of cases which were garbage. Many were scratched up, dented and a lot of XXX cases. In short, I got burned.

So I prefer to spend that dollar per case, I know what I'm getting; examine each and which studios has the 'good stuff'.

Thank for the reply. But I'll pass. Not gonna spend more money on something that far too many don't understand - knowing what 'mint' or 'like new' means. The used DVD purchase horror stories I could tell.

Something else - you, MooMooMooMoo are the 1,000th post in this thread. Congratulation. A testament that people still care and are actively interested.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

It has begun (again).

Thanks for the info.

Would like to get "Inherent Vice" and "Mutant Chronicles: Collector's Edition" - I need one of the discs, I accidentally damaged my copy.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Hasn't hit my local DT; still doing their weekly item - solar walk-way lights.

But the DVDs will be out, later this week, which should be on Thursday.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

I only went to one store. They had a lot of stuff, 95% of which I'd never heard of. 14 blind buys blu & dvd; + 1 Twilight Zone dvd of rarities (These episodes were not on the dvd box, I will have to look before I open it to see if they're on the blu box). At $1.00 each (actually $1.11 with our criminal sales tax) if any become an empty case I'll live!

They also had Experimenter on DVD which I picked up last time.

dvd's:
Just Shoot Me S1
More Treasures Of The Twilight Zone
The Signal
Mutant Chronicles
King Arthur Excaliber Rising
Take This Waltz
The Girl
PBS Mercy Street Season 2
The Last Word
SNL In The 80's: Lost & Found


blu-rays in that thread. They had a TON more, but 15 blind buy's was enough........

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Only one of the stores in my area had them out, kinda a poor selection.

Took home "Mercy Street: Season 2" and "Good Kids" - both blind buys.

The local store claims the titles will be put out tomorrow - which is now today. But they said that on Thursday and Friday.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Done; three stores in my area.

Picked up as blind buys:

Legit: The Complete First Season

The Signal

Troll Hunter

The Lazarus Effect

Gedar Rapids: The Super Awesome Edition

How I Live Now

And thirteen releases for cases.

Nobody here had "Inherent Vice", "Indian Summers: The Complete First Season" or "Compliance".

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Wondering if and when they send boxes to the stores that they just send so many to ea store and just have choice of what stores get. can only guess if u by chance have so many or so few in the area that not all will get the same movies or same amount as they stores have cause some may have left overs from past shipments that no one cares to buy any at anytime. saw movies i saw last time so since movies are mass produced that by chance they get same ones or a complete new batch kinda when they get new boxes every few months. i just learned to have some bank ready cause alot can get and not bad deal compared to other places by chance may charge more then a buck for the same selection anytime.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Most Dollar Tree lots and their title mix are tied to regional distributor returns from Walmart. That is why you have mixed selections that vary from region to region.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

I debate getting more even though i have so many already from last trip and any from thrift place i check at random. just west coast getting a heat wave and so it debatable knowing how they always have dvds cause traffic slowly going to streaming so they donate any dvd or br they have now if any. and since i always see wm bins full or almost filled of dvd and br when i check stuff, i random check any i really want at time or just wait to go thrift to get cheaper and still in good condition at time. just gotta wait and see what gold i can score later.

It's a hit and miss thing, Cabler45 - when it's good.

It's very good.

Re: Dollar Tree DVDs

Finally got around to hitting my local store today - a total bust. There was an endcap with like, 4-5 DVD's laying in a pile of other junk.

I was hoping to at least get "Troll Hunter" & "Hobo With A Shotgun".
