    Don't know if anyone else ever noticed this, but they seem to be the same company. I just ordered from DVD Planet for the first time (thanks to the abundance of 20% Off sales) and noted that both companies ship out from the same address.

    900 N. Rohlwing, Itasca

    Don't know what to do with this info, but I thought I'd share as it seemed interesting to me.

    Maybe they share a warehouse which they both ship from.

    I'm not sure they're the same company. They may be just "middlemen" and instead of having the warehouse ship to an outside address and then shipping the dvds a second time to your home, they simply cut a deal to have the warehouse ship directly to us instead, thus cutting costs dramatically, and passing the savings onto us. I haven't researched it at all, but I'm willing to wager that same warehouse services other businesses as well, such as Borders, Target, independent retailers, etc...

    I might be wrong, but I think I remember reading an interview that said they are all part of the same company. The dude who runs it has multiple sites, so in a way, I think Deep Discount and DVD Planet are "sister" sites.
