It can be incredibly annoying when, having waited weeks for your new favourite film to be released on DVD, you go to the store you have decided to buy from only to discover that they are out of stock. There is little you can do in this kind of situation other than to visit a different store, but this is of no use if you had picked that particular shop due to lower prices. This can lead to you spending more than you wanted to and, though it may only be a couple of pounds, in the current financial climate every penny counts.
To stop this from happening in the future you should consider pre-ordering your DVDs, so you can be sure to receive yours on the day of release. You can do this online to make things even easier, and you will be able to save a considerable amount of time by pre-ordering as you won’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home to sort everything out. Another great reason for going online for your pre-orders are the savings to be made – often, shops list DVDs at a markdown price during the run-up to release, so you can get the DVDs you want for less.
If this isn’t an incentive to preorder your DVDs then the fact that you can have them delivered to your door as soon as they have been released might be. If you work a fulltime job or you have other commitments it can be hard to get into the town centre to buy the new DVDs you have been after since the films first showed at the cinema, so having them delivered right to you will definitely be a draw.
There are currently lots of different DVDs available for preorder, which you should check out to make sure you won’t miss out on anything. Some of the biggest cinema hits to appear on the preorder lists in the coming months include War Horse (07/05/2012), Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol (30/04/2012), The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (19/03/2012) and Hugo (02/04/2012), although there are many others for you to choose from as well.
If you are interested in pre-ordering films that you enjoyed at the cinema you should look online now for websites offering pre-order sales.
