Any word on whether or not Deep Discount will be holding their semi-annual sale again? It's now June, which is the traditional month to have the sale.

I know last fall (Nov 2008), they increased their discount from 20% off to 25% off.

Anyone hear anything about this?

It's usually sometime around mid-June, IIRC.

Following are the dates I've been able to verify for the start of the DDD Spring sale:

June 5 2008
May 31, 2007
June 8 2006
June 17, 2005
June 9, 2004

I wasn't able to find the sale thread for 2003, though it should have been started after the last great purge. Anyway, it should be in the next week or two (but could happen tomorrow).

Thanks for posting those previous dates, Mark.

I'm quivering with anticipation - I have so many TV on DVD sets to get...

I've got two years worth to get, since the US dollar shot up just before last year's sale.

There's no guarantee they'll even have a sale this time. They recently had a coupon for 10% off $40 and since they rarrely have coupons other than their biennial sales, speculation was that sale was replacing the usual 20%/25% sale.

I have a feeling many people are going to be disappointed when July 1 comes around without a DD sale.

Naw, DDD will just lose their business. I've got a ton of DVDs that I've been sitting on for a while now - no Must Haves or anything, just a whole bunch of "Hey, that would be cool to have if it was cheap enough" movies and TV shows. If DDD doesnt do their 20% off sale this year, those potential impulse buys will continue to sit there, untouched.

Yeah but with the sale prices, they probably do a little better than break even on what they pay for the product so losing those sales (and the customers that only shop with them in June and November) is basically meaningless.

The rumor I heard from a friend who works at a sister company of DD's parent is that the sale will be in July (again, he said that he just saw some internal memo on this). Plus, there's a big Buy 1 Get 1 Free Father's Day sale on Anchor Bay product going on right now -- just got the two Mario Bava box sets for $30 -- and they tend not to have any overlapping deals or bargains. I just want to be able to get that David Lynch Lime Green Box on the cheap.

If they didn't make money on their 20% off sales, they wouldn't have them. It's not like they only put clearance items on sale. They apply the sale to everything. They make money of their sales or they wouldn't do them. They don't do them so they can break even.

I said that they "probably do a little better than break even". That money and keeping customers happy must make it worth it to them.
