    Are those prices before the discount? They don't really seem like very good prices, or at least not as good as they should be. I know that not too long ago I bought Cemetery Man on deep discount for less than $10. It's also a shame that you didn't get the AB Inferno last year while they were still selling it for $5.50.

    Did you guys who already received their packages pay for shipping?

    Nemesis, you did enter the codes and get the 20% off those normal prices you quoted, right? :D

    I used (and almost always use) the free shipping option, unless it's something I really need fast.

    yeah i used the 20% discount.. those prices are pre discount..

    the thing about international shipping is that below $249 the shipping is $16.95, $249.01 and above the shipping is $39.95... so i had to break my order into two groups of under $249 because it was cheaper... what's more annoying is that shipping is calculated PRE discount so i actually end up with 2 orders of just over $215..

    DDD is still by far the cheapest for me due to international shipping rates (used to be even better when it was $16.95 for shipping with no order limit to compare to dvdplanet who charge $5 per order and $1.25 per disc (per disc, not per title... so for the order i have above i'd end up paying like $90 for shipping alone on the first order.. which is a rip off. amazon isn't any better either.

    so for me the best value is waiting 6 months for the DDD sale and buying a whole heap of stuff at once

    I just opened my package from Deep Discount and found that they screwed me on the Jaws 30th anniversary DVD. It's missing the slip-case, which isn't that big a deal as Deep Discount has shipped sans slip in the past and I don't mind since most of them are just duplicates of what's on the actual case itself. What I DO mind is that it's missing the 60 page booklet which I suppose would have been inside the slip case along with the DVD. Damn them to hell.

    The newer versions of the Jaws disc do not include the slipcover, or the 60 page booklet. Only the initial pressings did, so it's not Deep Discount's fault there.

    Most Studios don't include the slipcases/slipcovers after they've been in the retail channel for a period of time.

    I received my first order yesterday after placing my order on the 6/6, but I did pay for the extra shipping. I placed another order yesterday that I did free shipping on, so we'll see when that one gets here. Also, I don't know about anyone else, but when I placed my second order it wouldn't let me use the 20% off coupon. I didn't use the same code either, I tried two different ones as well. I was kind of pissed about it because the discount was in place up to when I had to confirm the order, than all of a sudden the discount was gone and the order jumped up $10. Anyone else have this problem?

    I also bought Godzilla Raids Again, but had I waited a few days I would've bought it through dvdplanet's 20% sale instead. The regular price on all of those new Godzilla discs are 77 cents cheaper there.

    (They're also selling Pinky Violence for $50.36 during the sale. It pays to shop around. ;))
