My hubby got me 5 dvds, which was great, I wanted everyone of them! Then I started thinking about how he never shops online, and asked him if he would mind telling me how much he paid. He paid 20.00 per dvd!! So I asked him if he would mind if I returned them and rebuy them online, he paid $108.00 in total, I paid $58.12 for the same dvds, saving him $41.88! So glad he always saves his receipts.

That's a BIG savings. You need to teach him a few things about shopping. LOL

My husband is the same way. He still hasn't used the gc I gave him to get me something and it expires in a couple of days. I need to get it off of him so I can use it them. Don't know if you saw my thread about the stuff I got for free, well, he would never have thought of doing something like that. I think he thinks that you have to spend $$ to get something good. Well I think getting work boots, wallet, belt and a lot of toys for free is good too. LOL

Mine is the same way. He never looks for the best deal. The first store he goes to that sells whatever he's looking for....he's buying it there. Nevermind that the store across the street has it for $30 cheaper. He'd rather save time, I'd rather save money!

Not for the same reason, but I will have to return a gift for the same person twice :( I posted a thread about needing help with a gift for my friend. I bought Friends season 10, which someone else gave her. I returned it and ordered Charmed season 1. She told me yesterday someone out of town gave her that. :( So looks like I'll be returning again. Circuit City is going to think I'm nutzo. Guess I'll order Charmed season 2.... surely she won't get anymore gifts :)

Opposite here. I am the husband and I find the deals. My wife is impatient and can't normally wait for a good deal online (with shipping time). I usually hold out if it takes longer.. it's all about the bottom line to me. :)

I am willing to wait for good deals on some items, however I have paid retail and above retail when I really wanted something.

The best place IMO to price out DVDs is dvdpricesearch.com it searches multiple sites and shows you the prices for them with shipping.

I use that too, but I was stunned the other day when overstock had some boxed sets on sale for 50% off, I paid $14.99 for the season 1 dvd, its 31.00 in walmart. But it never came up on dvdpricesearch, I was so shocked.

Yeah sometimes they arent correct but they are the best for comparing prices without going to each website and looking for yourself individually.

Amazon.com and deepdiscountdvd.com


My sister sent me an email earlier about the deepdiscountdvd website, it is terrific. My son got a PSP for Christmas and they have their PSP movies(umd's) buy one get one free & free shipping.:banana01:

He is a tightwad and does not like spending his own money , but he was willing to for that kind of deal.
