View Full Version : What is the best place to buy DVDs online?
I am thinking about buying quite a few DVDs and want to know what is the best place to buy them from. I have already used most if not all of Buy.com's promotions so I am trying to find other sites with good deals.

Due to the lack of Dvd deals, I've found that the best place to get some is Columbia House. Check the Columbia House dvd deal threads for more details or go to www.dvdtalk.com (http://www.dvdtalk.com) and check out their out deal boards. You'll find a very comprehensive thread(s) on the CH dvd deal.

if you are a dvd freek and have time to watch a new one every day and willing to pay 20 a month to hold 4 dvd movies at one time
go to netflix.com
they let you rent dvds and they pay shipping
like dvd rentals through mail

All the different sites out there have a deal going on at sometime.
or http://www.dvdpricesearch.net/cgi-bin/dvdhtml2 (the later turns up better results). They will find your cheapest price on dvds and also list certain site promotional offers and coupons on their main page.
Good luck and happy bargain hunting...

I've got to second the NetFlix plug. Unless you're just building a collection, I think it's the best deal. Most movies aren't worth watching more than once anyway. And if you want to see it again, just rent it a second time. Their rentals are for an unlimited amount (only 4 out at any one time, so there is a REAL limit, factoring mailing time and such), so if you like to watch a lot of movies and hate going to the store to pick from 50 DVDs, this it the bomb. Just my $.02.

If you like Clubs look for the Columbia House Deals. I found that they are the best ( you can average down the cost of 1 dvd to around 6$ ) I dont have a current code, but I think that if you search the forum you will find one. ( if not here also try www.dvdtalk.com (http://www.dvdtalk.com) )

Hmm, think this might be up my alley.
S2, if you have used all the available buy.com links. You need to use the Amazon HARRYPTTRSPC coupon giving you $10 off $20 purchase (expires 8/1/00). Now be sure that you also get referred by someone to Amazon so that you can get the $5 referral coupon. These are both promotional coupons. They are one time use coupons.
Secondly, the mention of the Columbia House deal is great for newbies. You can get DVDs for around $10 which is great. Here is the DVDTalk.com link that gives you a complete list of Coupon Codes available, DVDTalk, The One and Only Columbia House DVD Thread Part III (http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/014327.html)
Now I do strongly suggest that you go to DVDTalk (http://www.dvdtalk.com) to keep up with DVD deals and general news information. There are not a great amount of deals out there right now, unless you have time to click and rate banners/music. They do from time to time pop up. Best of luck and I hope to see you around the DVD Forums.
Thanks a lot for the information. I think that the NetFlix looks like a good option. Coincidentally, I just recieved an information brochure thing from them in the mail yesterday. I will be sure to check it out.
P.S. The Amazon.com deal doesn't look bad either.

The best internet code for Columbia House is 'FVT'. The phone code everyone is using is 'HMA'. Everyone is right about going to dvdtalk.com's forums and doing a little research. I joined under both of the codes above and did well. You can buy some $40-$50 dvd on this deal for a buck and sell them on ebay like I did for around $25. It is helping pay for my growing collection.
