What is the most amount of DVDs you've received in one day?

Today a big portion of my Columbia House orders came in. I received a total of 17 DVDs. My what a glorious day it was! What's the most you've gotten?

20 from some of my columbia house orders. The mailman stacked them in one pile on the porch. Sort of like a dvd jenga stack.

About 275 from the last DDD 20% off sale (after Hurricane Charley I'd waited for it to replace some of what I'd lost).

21 from DDD.com during 20% off sale

20: 17 from DDD.com during 20% off sale + 3 more used from BBV.

18 but that's cuz it was the Warner Bros Best Picture Bundle from Amazon.

I got 17 from DDD.com another time.

Most ever in a day was close to 30 from DDDVD's 20% off sale.

But I received my most treasured shipment of 25 Criterions in one day.

You must not have been around here long. I have had numerous days over 10, not sure what the most was in one day. I got 70+ LD one day and that was the most movies in one day. I think I also got 4 or 5 DVDs and my LD player that day. Damn that was a good day.

Probably about 20 in the mail from the DDD 20% sale - and again the next day ..... and the next .... and the next.

The most I ever bought at a store goes back to 2001 when a place in lower Manhattan briefly had a bargain outlet for used stuff. I grabbed about 30 DVDs all priced at $1.99 each! About half were titles I wasn't particularly interested in keeping, and they all sold profitably on eBay.

When I first started my Hong Kong movie infatuation, I used to order them directly from HK. At about 30 at a time to hold down postage.

Only about 10-12. Any more than that and I'm worried someone will swipe them right off my porch.

Most I had ever purchased in a day was probably about 13-15.
