    I placed my order on Friday the 5th and just received my shipping confirmation yesterday. This is my first encounter with DDD, but I'll let the slowness slide for 20% off. Plus, I'm sure they were swamped because of the special. My mom even ordered from them when I told her about the sale, and I don't think she has ever ordered much of anything online.

    I've got to believe they were buried; every online forum I frequent was talking about these coupons. I'm surprised I've already gotten most of my massive orders, frankly.[​IMG]

    They may be placing the $36 for Alias "on hold" until they ship. I think BestBuy.com also does this. In order to guarantee that the money is in your account, they authorize a "hold" so you cannot use the cash as long as the order is pending even though they won't actually remove the money until it ships.

    I placed two orders, one back on 12/3 for which I also paid for "Expedited Shipping." Still no DVD's or even confirmation that they've shipped. [​IMG]

    Tony, I posted this before, but I'll post it again. When you placed the order, they got a confirmation for the $95+. That disappeared after a day or two, or however long WF keeps it there. That is how virtually anything you buy works. I'm guessing you are using a debit card. Now, the final charge will appear once they ship the DVD. It is quite likely both sets won't be shipped at the same time. I seriously doubt they will do anything wrong. I have had DVDs arrive from DDD before the charge appeared on my account. I also often get the DVDs before I get the shipping confirmation, or a lot of times, it is the same day.


    Also, to all concerned, I expect the expedited shipping is usually largely a waste of money. What is faster is the transit time. I don't think it makes a bit of difference in how long it takes to get out of the warehouse. The main benefit is that this time of year media mail can get pretty slow.

    thanks john, but my post was a quote from Thomas H G, and i was offering him the idea of calling ddd.com.
    since he seems to be having a problem with his order.

    Had a second order during the discount period, consisting of only Simpsons 2, which was out of stock at the time. Ordered it on the 3rd, it shipped via free 5-10 day shipping on the 11th and I have it two days later. Very happy with DDD. The discount was my first taste of business with them, and I will be returning.

    I just received the first DVD from my 20% off order.

    Unfortunately, they sent me the wrong DVD.

    Instead of sending The Third Man, they sent me The Thin Man!

    Well, they were close....only off by two letters!

    Of course, The Thin Man costs about half of what The Third Man does!

    I like B&M's for the instant gratification. But I just bought Looney Tunes Golden at BB today, using a $5 certificate I have from being a Rewards member -- and I still ended up paying $6 more (after sales tax) than I would have paid by ordering from DDD. And that's without the 20% discount. My new rule is -- if I can afford to wait for an item, I'll just order it DDD.

    I'm still waiting for my order... I've got a stockpile of DVDs bought from costco that I'm waiting to return. Even though costco has good prices, DDD blew them away. For an extra $100 I got a few titles I didn't have before...

    Items going back to stores:
    DVD : DARK CRYSTAL (SUPERBIT), THE $ 16.27
    DVD : DAS BOOT (SUPERBIT)(DC)(2D) $ 16.27
    DVD : APOLLO 11 $ 29.27
    DVD : APOLLO 8 $ 29.27
    DVD : GODS & GENERALS $ 16.65
    DVD : AMADEUS (2DISC/SE) $ 16.32
    DVD : SINGIN' IN THE RAIN (2DISC/SE $ 16.32
    DVD : SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER $ 10.84
    DVD : X-MEN X2 (WS)(UNITED SPECIAL $ 11.91
    DVD : LARA CROFT TOMB RAIDER (2PK) $ 21.26
    Repurchasing saved me over $60 not including 8.25% sales tax on $220 of DVDs.

    New purchases:
    DVD : SAMURAI 1 (CRITERION) $ 17.24
    DVD : SAMURAI 2 (CRITERION) $ 17.24
    DVD : SAMURAI 3 (CRITERION) $ 17.24
    DVD : PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN-CURS $ 14.31
    DVD : TENACIOUS D-COMPLETE MASTERWO $ 10.63
    DVD : SNL-CHRISTMAS $ 8.20
    DVD : IMAX (SPACE COLLECTION) $ 38.84
    DVD : DR. SEUSS-CAT IN THE HAT, THE $ 6.23
    DVD : DR SEUSS-GREEN EGGS & HAM $ 6.23
    DVD : DR SEUSS' ABC $ 6.24
    DVD : DR. SEUSS-ONE FISH TWO FISH R $ 6.24

    I'm holding on to all my returns until I get DDD shipments in my hands... I have no idea what I'll actually receive.

    If we had sales tax I'm sure I would be frequenting DDD more often for new releases, but one or two dollars difference is not worth the wait for me in most instances. Generally if I'm going for a new release it's something I want right away. DDD hasn't been bad at all in shipping time, but I've found I enjoy the instant gratification of getting a disc the day of release more than the couple dollars of savings. I imagine that's why I'm not wealthy [​IMG]

    I was just wondering if anyone's Alias S2 has shipped yet? I ordered it along with Digital Video Essentials on Tuesday December, 2rd and they estimated it would be back in stock on the 12th. My account still shows that it hasn't come back into stock yet.

    Thanks

    I've received my Alias S2. Only thing I haven't gotten yet is Finding Nemo which was on backorder.
