    I just saw this a couple of hours ago and bought two chick flicks and Grosse Pointe Blank (yes, they're all for me :). Oh, and the price is $8.97 for each movie.

    I tagged about nine discs that were of interest, but it got shaved down to three after reading reviews on them. The majority I picked didn't have high marks for picture quality and most were non-anamorphic.

    Was tempted to give DDD a try after finding three that I wanted. Just received my order but got one wrong DVD.

    Ordered: "Shakespeare in Love", "The Rocketeer" and "Brassed Off"

    Received: "High Fidelity" (???!!!), "The Rocketeer". "Brassed Off" is on backorder.

    Emailed customer service.
    And they sent a return label to send the wrong one back. When they get it they will send the correct one.

    Update Monday October 24, check on the status of my order and noticed....

    That the DVDs in the Buy 2 get 1 Free offer now have a lower price of $5.99 !!!

    I emailed customer service again. Sigh.

    Aaaack! Brenda: Your post comes just two hours after I placed an order with them!

    I have just written thier customer service and told them that I just became aware that the prices dropped from $8.97 to $5.99 just minutes after I placed the order.

    How aggravating! I had been debating this order for days and decided to pull the trigger when I saw they had Battle of Britain for the cheapest price around. So, moments after I place the order...down go the prices!

    Anyone have any track record with DDD? Any guesses as to what they'll do. I have not yet received an e-mail that the discs have shipped...just a confirmation of the order. So, they say, my card has not yet been charged.

    Mike, call their toll-free customer service number: 800-264-5076.

    My experiences with DDD (and their sister site DDCD) have always been positive ones. Although I have not contacted them with your exact issue, on the one occasion that I did have to contact them, I found their customer service department to be polite and very easy to work with. They quickly resolved my issue (including pre-paid return postage for a defective item!) I have to think they will do the same for you. Good luck!

    Gary: Joke's on me. I picked up the phone immediately and dialed their 800# (thank you!) and got a recording with an awful 5 second-loop (!) that told me all their operators were busy and that someone would be right with me. After a few minutes of that I went to their "contact us" page and found the phone line is only manned from 8am to 7pm CT! [​IMG]

    I'll call 'em first thing in the morning and report back. Thanks again!

    Gary: You 'da man!

    Called DDD this morning and they adjusted the price on my order. In case anyone is interested, they are keeping the original charge but crediting me the difference when billed.

    For me:

    Simon Birch
    Red
    Joy Luck Club for a total of $11.98! [​IMG]

    Plus, Battle of Britain for another $19.50! No shipping, no handling, no tax.

    Total for all four titles = $31.48

    Thanks, too, to DDD! [​IMG]

    Guo: They pulled ME back in!

    Friendly, accomodating, reasonable customer service...plus amazing prices!

    Went back and got:

    White
    Blue
    Mr & Mrs Bridge
    Hand that Rocks the Cradle
    Children of Heaven
    Phenomenon

    All for $23.96! Woohoo! Last time I checked, $24/6 = $4 per title! [​IMG] That's better than I do in my local used DVD shops or garage sales!

    Yep, a great way to pick up Red, White and Blue for just under $12, that's a real deal.

    I ended up picked up 24 DVDs for around $96.
