Interesting. So would the assumption be that one would have to pay an annual fee or something to be a member?

I would assume a fee and maybe have to buy something each month
as well.

Also, it will probably only be for the USA only.

I would hope that they don't charge a membership fee considering all of the complaints about their inability to keep items in stock and ship out orders.

Yeah, 20% off of one order a month and one new release DVD for $9.99 sounds great, as long as they bother fulfilling these orders. I don't think I'd trust them enough to pay them anything for this program.

You missed the bullet point regarding how orders made by Savings Club members actually ship in a reasonable time frame.

I wonder if this is in partnership with that group of retailers trying to compete with amazon prime or if it is seperate.

These "benefits" sound like one of those "rewards" rackets where they bill your credit card a monthly fee, doesn't it?

So members of "The Party" will get preferential treatment, while the lumpen proletariat will continue to wait three months for their orders.

I guess in Communist DD land, DVDs ship you.

Sounds third-party to me.

What worries me is the part that says "all accessed through a convenient web portal on our site".

Should include a new release Blu in the deal. The only dvds I pick up are back catalog that are not available on blu.

Re: DeepDiscount Savings Club - Coming Soon

I'm curious to see what this entails. I'd only sign up after doing the math. And let's face it: The math re. online DVD sellers (& B&M sellers) these days is largely in their favor, not ours. The deals of yesteryear are scarcer nowadays. So I'm skeptical that this new DD scheme will be worthwhile.
