Might be a good way to snag battlestar galactica on blu at a bit less than that 220 dollar price tag....

The discount always works on all IN STOCK titles. However, it is also common for current discount prices to sometimes be adjusted up a bit just before the 25% off sale starts.

I'm not saying that BG won't be a great buy with the 25% sale. I'm just saying don't expect it to necessarily be $222.67 at the time the sale starts.

Boy, they really know how to time this sale so that it happens when there ain't diddly shit coming out from the studios. I can hold off three days after its release and pick up THIS IS SPINAL TAP, and I can get TWELVE MONKEYS on 7/28 (I'm sticking with Amazon for WATCHMEN, since I'm getting their high-dollar exclusive set) but that'll be all she wrote! Definitely a sale for those who need to catch up on catalog titles, but I've already bought all of those on my want list so I'm just in the market for new releases now. What I'm very interested in is if DeepDiscount holds to form and extends the sale at the "11th hour" just a couple more days into/past 8/4, when BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, JACKIE BROWN, THE LAST STARFIGHTER, MY COUSIN VINNY, PULP FICTION and SLING BLADE are all slated for release...then this sale will have some real meaning for me!

It's worked for me before for out of stock items, but not pre-orders. They ship it when they get it in.

Yep, that's been my experience too. With free shipping, don't expect an immediate delivery either as they ship with USPS. No big deal, esp. for catalog titles, as all of my orders eventually arrive. If you're concerned about a current title selling out quickly, you can make separate orders using the same code as DD doesn't limit the number of times the code can be used. One more reason I shop there.

True dat! In the past they've extended their sales, so here's hoping someone is paying attention.

The last few times the code only worked once for me, but there was a plethora of codes, so I made a few orders anyways.

My bad! I meant to say ALREADY RELEASED titles. Sorry about that!

If DD doesn't raise prices on the titles I want, there are 5 titles on my list that will be around $16 or less with the 25% off sale. If I purchased those 5 titles from Amazon right now, the 5 would cost me $19 more (and they would have cost even more than that had I purchased them on the release week for each).

Patience is a virtue! All 5 of the titles were released within the last month or so. What's another month or two??

I'll start building my list for the next Deep Discount sale!

STUDIOS: You want me to buy new Blu-ray releases the same week they are released? Then get those street prices down in the sub-$20 range for new releases and the sub-$16 range for catalog titles! I will NEVER pay more than $20 for a (single title) Blu-ray movie again! And there are a TON of consumers that are waiting for Blu-ray pricing to get down below the crazy levels they are at now! Blu-ray isn't growing as fast as it should... You want to change that? LOWER THE PRICES!!
