    Subject says it all. And yet I'll say more:

    20% off works on pretty much all DVDs except pre-orders (but 11/14 releases should be eligible for the sale beginning that day).

    Some codes that usually work (but I don't believe are confirmed for this sale yet):

    USATODAY
    NYTIMES
    SUPERSALE
    DDDCD
    DD1110
    PRICESEARCH
    LATIMES
    ESPN
    YAHOO
    JIM
    WGN
    XM
    DVDTALK

    Get ready.

    The sale doesn't seem like such a bargain this time around. Several of the boxed sets I want are priced over $40 (pre-sale). In previous years they were in the $30 range. I won't be buying too much this time around.

    Their prices have gone way up this past year. I can usually find better deals on Amazon now. That said, they are still cheaper on some items. I used to just blindly buy from DDD, but after they jacked the prices I always shop around first now. I'll buy a few things during the sale, but not nearly as much as I used to.

    Interesting timing for me. I have 5 different releases that are coming out 11/21. I was hoping to grab these at 20% off, but no such luck...

    Alias The Complete 5th Season
    Boston Legal The Complete 2nd Season
    How I Met Your Mother Season 1
    Seinfeld Vol 6 - Season 7
    Star Trek: Animated Complete Series

    Looking at all the titles I have been interested in, I see no indication of that. Of course, I am generally not looking at new releases, so maybe it is different with them. Not a single title I am interested in is nearly as low at Amazon, before the extra 20% off.

    Hey - does this apply to their counterpart in the CD world? (I doubt it, but no harm asking). There's a couple of discs I've been waffleing on that an additional 20% off could swing me.

    Accusations of price jacking should be compared to other retailers at
    http://www.dvdpricesearch.com

    One may find their prices are still neck and neck with Amazon and sometimes lower (even before the discount code).

    DVD Price Search's database does suggest to me that DDD might have done a few price alterations this afternoon. DDD are selling Doctor Who (2005): Series 1 for $74.99 right now, but DVD Price Search lists their price as $71.48. With the 20% discount, I can't argue with the $59.99 price (kills the competition). Still, it does indicate that people might want to double check that they are getting a good deal with this sale. In most cases, they should.

    Ordered West Wing Complete Series this afternoon. Probably just 1 more order next week, as that WW set took up a lot of my budget for the sale.

    I've been trying to navigate their site tonight and am running into major problems. Lots of error messages pointing to their server.

    Maybe theya re not handling the stress of the sale too well. I guess I'll try later.

    From what I can tell, most of them are normal fluctuations that are just as likely to be decreases as increases. For example, the Astaire & Rogers Ultimate Collection went up a couple bucks since this morning, but the Forbidden Planet tin has dropped a few dollars.

    And some of the larger price changes are because DDD has other sales that are ending today. I just saw someone over at DVD Talk whining that The Prisoner Megaset shot up $15 right before the sale began. Of course what happened is that it was part of the A&E 50% off sale that was scheduled to end today.
