But that extensive DVD collection is not cheap, so I have discovered a few ways to add to my collection without breaking the bank.
The easiest way to do this is to check out the clearance shelves at your local discount chain stores. They tend to get the lowest prices and want to move inventory. Often you can get movies for under $5. Granted, they would not be the latest releases, but you can round out your collections with classics at these low prices.
I have also got a used DVD store in my neighborhood. This place is great. They buy and sell used DVDs. The collection varies greatly, so I try to stop in every week or two. You never know what you are going to find.
Another place to find used DVDs is at a DVD rental store. Often they overstock the latest release so that their customers will be able to find what they are looking for. That means, once that movie is no longer current, the rental store will have excess stock. They usually sell these movies at a reduced price since they have been pre-viewed, so if you can wait a few weeks, you can get that new release at a discount.
There are also many discount stores online that offer DVDs. Amazon.com offers DVDs and has a bargain bin for less current merchandise. Sometimes retail stores will offer a combo pack of two or three movies at a reduced rate. Usually there is one movie you have not heard of and one that is moderately popular in these packs. Often they are two movies with the same star, or by the same director. Buying combo packs like this exposes you to movies you might otherwise not see.
The big box stores like Sams Club also sell DVDs. Usually, you can get first run movies and box sets of older movies here. Do not expect a huge selection, but the prices will generally be a few dollars less than what you would find elsewhere.
If you find that you can not wait to see that movie and want to get the DVD as soon as it is released, you may still be able to get it for less. Shop around. Many stores offer first run DVDs at discount simply to get you in the store. If you do a little work, you can usually find your movie for less.
