Hey, just letting you know I ordered from them last week. I got my DVD's in 2 days, which was VERY FAST considering how I heard their shipping was slow. However, I also noticed when I placed my order I got charged tax. I investigated and got answers to why I got it so fast and why I was charged tax : They are located in ILLINOIS, which is where I am. I had no complaints with how things were packaged, all done well. But since I am located probably less than 3 hours from their warehouse and it took 2 days to get my package after I got a shipping notice I can see why people say they ship so slow.

Uh yeah that's why your shipping was so fast.
Since the OP doesn't give a clue to where he lives, I'll tell you this, the farther away from DDD your are, the longer it will take.

It ain't ignorance causes so much trouble; it's folks knowing so much that ain't so

It took me over a month to get my copy of The Mummy Collector's Edition with their free shipping option.

They take about 5-7 days for processing your order and shipment duration mostly depends upon the shipment option you choose at the time of placing the order. I live in Tokyo and am awaiting the delivery of my orders dated Jun-01-2007.

Imo free shipping is free shipping, if it takes two weeks or three then I'll wait it out.

Hmm I have ordered twice now on the 20% deal both with free shipping...all items shipped the following day and items were received in a week. This is definitely the fastest service I have ever gotten with them as prior orders usually take 2 weeks...

I live on the west coast of Florida and two of my hd dvds were shipped out on a Saturday and I received them the following Monday. I was very shocked considering I chose the free shipping option.

I always seem to get stuff from them quickly during their 20% off sales. I guess because the large boxes they ship travel a lot faster than the individual titles I buy from them. Don't ask me why, but it seems to work out that way.

This time around for their 20% off sale, I ordered a bunch of things Saturday, they shipped a couple days later, and arrived on Friday.

I ordered stuff last weekend. It shipped on Monday, and hasn't arrived yet. Of course, I live in Canada, so I'll start to get impatient if they don't arrive two weeks from this coming Monday...

I get faster arrivals during the 20% off sale too. Non-sale times have taken up to 2 full weeks. Now its a few days or so. Maybe its just a coincidence.

I've bought from them a few times. With and without the sales. They were pthologically slow. Paying extra for expidited shipping brings them up tojust extremely slow. I don't buy fom them anymore, even with the discount, they aren't cheap enough to warrant the wait. Amazon is still better, usually cheaper too.

It truly seems to depend on where you are located. I ordered last Sunday afternoon, had an e-mail it shipped Monday and received in eastern Kansas on Saturday. Less than a week for FREE ground shipping is fast enough for me. In the past I have paid extra for expedited shipping. Unless I have to have it quickly for some reason, I will be using free shipping option from here on out.

Of course as they say, your mileage may vary

I would've used their expedited shipping option, but when you read the fine print concerning each shipping method, they warn that the shipping method you choose (and pay for) will only be applied to the first item that ships, if the shipment is broken up. I didn't see an option to force them to ship everything together and wasn't sure if that was just standard. But, I didn't want to risk it.

But, yes, expect it to take at least 2 weeks and if it gets there quicker, you'll be pleasantly surprised. The stuff I buy from their sale is typically stuff I'm not in a hurry for. And I was a little nervous buying Planet Earth from them, given some of the stories concerning loose discs... I don't think I've ever done a return with DDD that I can recall and am not sure how smooth that process is (nothing can beat Amazon, I'd imagine - the way they handle returns is the best).

There's no rhyme or reason to their shipping. They're located roughly 10 miles from me and Ive gotten shipments in 2 days and Ive got them in 10 days. They're so close that I looked into picking them up but I was told that they are strictly mail order so I'm forced to wait it out like everyone else.

The last order I placed with them took only 4 days to get here (Denver). However, previous orders sometimes took up to 2 weeks. It is hit or miss with these guys.

I have ordered from them for years and on the average for delivery to Kansas it has taken 10days from the order date to arrive in my mail box.... but of course it all depends on if the item is in stock.. I have had items arrive in as short as two days and as long at six weeks for out of stock items.... all ordered under the free shipping option.

I don't think it's the retailer that is gonna be as responsible for loose discs as it is the packaging and how much it's thrown around during the delivery process. There are certain packaging types that I've never had much luck with from any retailer (online or B&M). The old Fox digipacks almost always had loose discs. The double sided plastic trays from WB constantly had them. And then there is that horrible packaging where the hubs are in the insides of the plastic case.

My only concern with DDD is that given how long it takes to receive discs, the return/re-order process would just be horriffic... if you end up getting a scratched disc, I could see it being a month between initial order and second copy. Amazon will have a replacement to you within 1-2 days, which I love. I just hold onto my first copy in case there are some different loose discs in the 2nd set, then I can just mix and match to build a good set. It beats standing at the Best Buy customer service counter and going through 3 different sets to build a good one.

I've been lucky during the last two 20% off sales I participated in - no loose discs. I even got that Buffy complete series set and all discs were fine (although, with that packaging, it would be hard for them to be loose).

Deepdiscount always takes a week minimum to get here on the east coast. I wasn't going to risk ordering any HD from them on this sale cause I've had some things in the past come poorly packed and shipped. Some damaged because of it

They have more than one warehouse...

And "IF" I did not know for sure I would bet on some product they forward orders to the studios warehouse for shipping...

As over the years have received disc's shipped from the 'IL', 'FL', 'TX', and 'CA'.

Some of the orders have even come 'miss packaged??' in "Columbia House" club boxes.

Heh, I've ordered quite a few times with them and honestly, Ive never really paid much attention to their packaging. That's probably a good thing. Im know I would have noticed if something was either extraordinarily good or bad. I would say they are pretty much cookie-cutter....about the same as most everyone else.
