What I don't like is the lack of specs for the dvds. widescreen or fullscreen.

I went to checkout, but I don't see the discount anywhere. I see that the coupon expires both yesterday and today. Does anyone know which it is? Where should I see the discount listed?

Coupon is still valid. I bought 5 DVDs for $50.00 (incl shipping) just 10 minutes ago. First go to the coupon link and register. Then log onto your account and keep adding to your shopping cart. Once the order total reaches $60.00, you see the $20.00 discount is automatically applied to your order total. You can remove items form you cart at any time.

I tried now by creating new a/c. It never uses the coupon. I found the following in their site:
------------------------
How do I use a coupon?

To use your coupon, you do not need a special code or number. By clicking on the link on our promotion, your coupon will automatically show up when you place items in your shopping cart and will be deducted from your total when you check out. Once you have clipped a coupon, it will remain on the account until its expiration date. Coupons can only be used in association with the e-mail address you used when you clicked on the link to our promotion. If you visit us another time using another e-mail address, you will not be able to access previous coupons. If you do not see your coupon on your on-screen invoice, please contact us before you place your order.
----------------------------
You may call them (1-800-989-0135) and place your order.

Just called the Overstock customer service number. The coupon has apparently expired and that is why it doesn't show up in the shopping cart. I'm surprised that the previous poster was able to take advantage of the deal about an hour ago. They must have just deactivated the coupon. Oh well... the prices on select DVDs are REALLY good. Combined with the coupon, that was a SWEET deal!

Thanks Rohini!

Got Total Recall, Some Like It Hot SE & Killing Fields for $30.92 shipped. Not bad considering it would have been like $54 plus shipping from Amazon.

I wouldn't be surprised that they deactivated the coupon early. I figure they had a few thousand orders from "new customers" last night on DVDs, PS2s (with the coupon, they were $230 shipped), GBAs (with the coupon, they were $45 shipped), PS2 games and GBA games. They lost anywere from $20,000-$80,000 last night with that particular coupon.
