I'm not certain, but I would suspect (if this e-tailer has any common sense) it would be sometime in early to mid December for the Holiday rush...

It might be the Friday, Saturday and Sunday after Thanksgiving. Many of the B&M's will have early store opennings and specials. The online stores will need a gimmick to draw the e-shoppers!!!! Storewide free shipping and lots of $10 off $30 coupons for returning customers would be perfect!!!

It doesn't matter if they have free shipping now. They just raised the prices on a bunch of their DVDs. Probably cheaper to buy from somewhere else regardless of free shipping.

Their prices did jump! This makes me wonder if I want to give them repeat business. In addition to their below average customer service, now they pull this sh!t? To hell with them!

All online DVD stores have gone to hell with respect to offering regular bargains. I bet 30% off will be the max on any pre-orders in the next few months.

Actually though, I was just looking through the preorders for the next few weeks and a lot of the $29.99 MSRP titles that Buy.com would have usually had up for $16.99 are $19.99 or more so it does look like they are going to be having higher preorder prices....maybe I'm missing something though.

If the price is the same or even if I have to pay $1 more at Amazon for a title, they'll get the business over Buy.com....the much friendlier order management is worth even if the DVDs do come a little late.

Unless Buy.com has a coupon of course the the business goes back to them

Well if that isn't a personal attack, I don't know what is.

Ahh, the good ole days. Buy.com's latest coupon is for a mere $15 off of a $150 purchase. It's cheaper to buy B&M stores now.
