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.

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. Posted Image

Yep, the best way to get another 20% off sale, is to not talk about the 20% off sale. Posted Image

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.

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!)

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.

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:
