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.
