Where do most of you's buy your DVD's?

What place is predominantly the cheapest for new releases, upcoming releases, etc...? I find Circuit City good for new rels, but I am deft. Thanks for any help.

Usually BB or CC for new releases, and DDD for all other purchases.

I usually pick up new releases at whatever B&M store has the best price. That seems to vary though. For older titles I usually go to Deep Discount DVD.

If you're willing to wait a little while for new releases, there is no better deal for most discs than Columbia House (other than those "free DVDs" sites, I guess). Not sure about box sets, though.

Bowel movement.

No, wait, that's something else.

He means brick and mortar, as in an actual store instead of ordering online.

I's more focused on getting my dvds/films the fastest way possible...regardless of the price. I'm in a position where I can spend a few extra bucks without worry. however, this fine point in my life may not last forever, so I need to start learning to save a little so when the time comes...it's all good. but for now...here is where I buy most of my dvds:

Amazon.com-fast shipping, great selection and helpful service whenever there is a problem.

Borders-sometimes it's the SERVICE and RESPECT I recieve that makes me choose a source. Borders rolls out the red carpet for me every time I walk in the door. a free cup of joe never hurts either. also...how many places can you order 10 dvds and not pay a cent until they arrive? the database on-line features many hard-to-find titles too. prices are sky high. I dont buy the newest releases there...just special orders.

Best Buy-for new releases maybe every other week. new releases are cheap...at least for me.

xploited.com-for most of my import needs. Tony is a class act with some of the best service and communication I have ever recieved, and thats the truth.

Poker Industries-for my Asian needs and some other stuff.

these are my big 5.

Even though lately they've been getting on my nerves, Best Buy is where I do the majority of my shopping.

For me all my purchasing is done on line. I pretty much find everything I need at either one of two stores and I have a pretty diverse collection.

First Choice - DVD Pacific

Second Choice - DVD Empire

I'm sure that many of you will be surprised by this, but most of my DVD's come from DDD.

Other sources (about 20% of purchases):
- Columbia House from time to time
- eBay and Half.com (R.I.P.) for OOP's
- DVDPlanet for some Criterions
- an occasional purchase from BB or WalMart
