Question about DDD orders: Mixing in-stock items with "upcoming releases"

I have a couple of questions about ordering DVDs from DeepDiscountDVD.com.

What happens if I mix a current in-stock release with an older movie that is listed at a later release date (despite already being out) because of a price drop?

Will they ship the in-stock item immediately and then ship the other item when they get it in, or do I have to wait for them to get the second item in before they ship both?

I've heard that they sometimes ship the older movies that get price dropped before the date listed on the page. True?

I'd like to order some DVDs, but I don't want to have to wait a month or two to get everything because a couple of the movies have future release dates. Would it better for me to place separate orders for the items I know are in stock and the items with later release dates?

Thanks.

They ship titles when available. If you choose to pay for priority shipping then the first item will ship priority and the rest will go media mail.

It seems that if they have a price drop title in-stock when you order they will ship it right away but if not, its like ordering a pre-order. You can not tell if they have it in-stock or not until you get
your order confirmation # email and then sometimes that is wrong to.

So, if I order in-stock items and pre-orders together, they'll ship the in-stock items immediately and then ship each of the pre-orders as they come in?

If you use the free shipping, place separate orders.

Yeah, I use the free shipping. One person here says that it's okay for me to order in-stock and pre-orders together while another says to place separate orders. Which is it?

They ship each item as it comes in stock, so it really doesn't matter. Free shipping is free for 100 items or just 1. I always find it easier to make each item a seperate order so things don't get confused if I cancel something.
