Deep Discount 25% off sale

Well, this is a little surreal. Is it possible that DD has started their Nov. sale and there isn't even a thread here yet?

How the mighty have fallen.

http://www.deepdiscount.com/THE-BIG-SALE-2013
Code is BIGSALE. Only good on marked items.


So far, I'm finding a few things that are a buck or two cheaper than Amazon, but nothing amazing...

The only superdeals anymore at DD are when they are running a separate sale on some line or catalog, and happen to throw up a 15% off universal code at the same time.

I should start a political rant to close this thread down and get banned till next spring.

I see a few items that are less expensive than Amazon, I might grab a couple titles. Thanks for the heads up. I miss their old sales.

Re: Deep Discount 25% off sale

All of the things I would have bought had their prices jacked up by about 30% so that I'd be paying the same amount I would have before the sale started.

(I know this because I made a list of the things I wanted and their prices in Excel about three weeks ago.)

...And there lies the main reason (for me anyway) this sale no longer interests. The things I want are never part of these sales. Gone are the glory days when their entire inventory would be 25% off during these sales.

Re: Deep Discount 25% off sale

Guess they've already put a number of retailers out of business. Remember how BB raised prices when Circuit City went under?

Re: Deep Discount 25% off sale

I had to place a single order 4 times last year before it finally shipped. I'll be passing this year.

Re: Deep Discount 25% off sale

I just recently unsubscribed from DD, because hunting through their lists had become basically a waste of time (though I did order two items not too long ago, first things in well over a year). The great DD sales are gone now what? 3-4 years ago? If I read about anything good at DD here, I'll check it out. Otherwise, life goes on.

Re: Deep Discount 25% off sale

I'm just tired of receiving the DVDs in a vac-sealed package as that is very difficult to remove said sealant from the main packaging and I've asked their shipping department to stop doing this.

Re: Deep Discount 25% off sale

It's bad enough that their prices after 25% rarely yield a bargain anymore. But restricting the sale titles makes me not want to even bother combing their site. I rarely find anything to buy. And if I do, I struggle to reach the free shipping quota. So I'm not even going to look, unless someone posts a specific bargain they found in this thread. Otherwise, I'll wait for the holidays bargains at other stores.

I don't recall that, only more recently do there seem to be less deals and I assume that's for other reasons.

Well that is a big difference, but the bigger difference is that the 25% off was off a lower price, now it's like 25% standard pricing which is what most sites are more or less normally, including them. I was on their site recently and saw something that was $18 or $19 and under the sale is $17ish. So yeah, it's a savings, but nothing that is going to make me order.

That Edie Adams TV set Here's Edie is available preorder for $28.42 which is a definite for me. Some of the Mario Bava and Jean Rollin Blurays are discounted but I haven't checked other prices yet.

Re: Deep Discount 25% off sale

The prices on some of those and other things have tended to be better at dvdplanet.com which is their sister store.

One of many. Super D owns around 10 large internet retailers.

Re: Deep Discount 25% off sale

I ordered a few things from them.

Karate-Robo Zaborgar (Blu-Ray) 11.59
Tokyo Gore Police 1.5 (2 DVD) 13.52
Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky (Blu-Ray) 13.38

I normally get my stuff from Amazon. Karate-Robo Zaborgar is 16.32. Tokyo Gore Police 1.5 is only available through 3rd party sellers (who I don't trust anymore). They don't sell Riki-Oh on Blu-Ray at all. It goes for about $18 on eBay.

I ordered on Sunday and received a shipping notification late Monday for all 3.

Just checked dvdplanet, and their prices are even cheaper (although they didn't have Riki-Oh). Never tried them before. How reliable are they?
