An Extremely Deep Discount


Deep Discount DVD is holding a 20% off sale which I believe ends on November 18. In order to take advantage of the sale, you have to enter a promotional code on check-out. If you shop carefully, this can really add up to a huge price cut over Amazon or other DVD outlets.

I'd been on the fence about buying MASH for quite some time because I felt the seasons were a bit too expensive on a per season basis. I also tend to prefer to buy complete sets rather than individual seasons of shows which I would like to have every season of. The added bonuses to being patient and waiting in this regard is that I get all the added extras they toss in to persuade people who already bought a show season by season buy the box set and I get each season more cheaply.

When I initially searched Amazon, I was delighted to see they listed it for about $140. A day later, it had jumped up to about $170 on Amazon and I was disappointed as that was over the threshold that I wanted to pay. Fortunately, in response to a sale message from Deep Discount DVD, my husband looked into the set's price on DDD and they had it for $140. Coupled with the sale discount, the price dropped down to $111 which is as good a deal as one can hope for.

I also found some other movies for a little over $4 after the discount. These weren't stellar movies but some science fiction that I like enough to watch now and then (like the original Stargate movie in its "ultimate edition" form). If you're a movie collector, it's a good time to go through the DDD catalog and fill in gaps very cheaply. I tend to choose a genre from the side bar then list movies by price from lowest to highest and scan up to a certain price range.

If you're interested in taking advantage of the sale and don't get DDD's "spams" (which as I said before, are actually worth getting), let me know and I'll pass on the discount code to you.

Please do pass the code on to me, I am supposed to get their spams and for some reason I didn't get this one!:(

Hi, Sean. I figured you'd be the only one who already knew but I guess they aren't efficient in "spamming" everyone. ;-)

I'm rather glad I blogged about it so you'd know. I e-mailed you the code and the original sale message (using the address on your web site). If you don't get it, let me know and I'll post it here in the comments.
