    This is strange. I posted an initial message in a new thread, but, though the thread seems to exist, my post doesn't. ???


    I will try again.

    I have seen references here at HTF to something called the DDD annual 20% off sale. Can anyone tell me about it? When does it typically occur? Is it storewide, or limited to designated titles? Is it an annual event? How long does it usually last?

    Thank you.

    DG

    In the past it's occured twice a year, once in June and again in November, for about a week, week and a half. But there's no actual guarantee they'll keep it up.

    And since you see lots of posts saying "I'll just wait for DDD's 20% off sale", you may be only seeing it once a year. [​IMG]

    Yep, the best way to get another 20% off sale, is to not talk about the 20% off sale. [​IMG]

    The sale usually occurs in June around Father's Day. My wife lets me choose my own present by ordering some DVDs during the 20% off sale.

    The first rule of DDD 20%-Off Sale -- Don't talk about DDD 20%-off sale!!! [​IMG]

    (Just keep an eye on this folder -- you'll know about the sale within 15 minutes if/ when it reappears.)

    Sorry to get everyone's hopes up (I can just see everyone now running to this thread to see if the deal is on).

    BUT, Is there a way to subscribe to a thread without posting to it (I don't wanna miss out on this again!)

    Matt

    Help!!

    I can't find the link/button to input a code! Can anybody tell me exactly where to look on the webpage to find the place to insert the discount code?

    Thanks a billion!

    You don't enter the code until part of the check-out process. There is a box (on the payment page?) that asks for it.

    Actually, the code appears on the shopping cart page but you have to be logged in to see it.

    Thanks, guys. The box does appear just below the choices for shipping.
    I don't know why I didn't see it the first time around (like it was suggested,
    maybe I hadn't logged in yet).

    Anyway, like most of you, I have been waiting for a long time for this sale
    and had a big list of DVDs saved up. Here is the contents of my initial order:

    Item Description Quantity Price
