Deep Discount's annual winter sale has begun. It's 25% off (just enter the coupon code "25MORE" at checkout), but as with the last couple of sales, it's not quite as good as it was in the old days, because the sale doesn't apply to every item in stock and the seller has raised their prices on a lot of items in advance of the sale. Still, prices do end up being at least a little bit cheaper, and there are some great deals if you look around. What I'm most excited about is that the sale includes the recently released Columbia Classics DVDs on demand, and makes them just $14.74 each. The first wave of Columbia DVD-R's included such spy titles as Otley (a true classic that everyone needs in their collection!), Duffy, The Executioner and Man on a String. The 25% off Winter Sale runs through December 10.
Of course there are lots of amazing Black Friday deals going on this weekend, too, at brick and mortar stores. Best Buy is selling a lot of recent neo-Eurospy movies at cut-rate prices. From Thursday to Saturday, both Taken (review here) and From Paris With Love will be on sale for just $9.99 on Blu-ray and just $5.99 on DVD. There are a lot of Lionsgate titles on sale, which makes me realize how many spy movies the studio put out this year (without a hit among them, sadly): besides From Paris With Love, Killers and The Spy Next Door are also part of the sale.
