    I know I'm getting the Alfred Hitchcock Masterpiece Collection for Christmas from my wife since I bought it myself from DDD when they had their 20% off sale. I'm expecting other DVDs from other relatives (I tried to drop enough hints, at least[​IMG] )

    I took avantage of the 20% off deal with DDD as well. I hope my wife did the same thing. Even helped other people I work with to get some good deals for their friends and families. I seem to be the go-to guy when anyone is looking for DVDs.
