    Yeah, not sure what else we can say on this point that hasn't been said. We had some customers who were buying so much credit and then doubling up their savings with coupons and deals from the CDCC that we were losing money hand over fist on their orders... essentially paying them to take books... in some cases, to the tune of five figures each year! It's a good way to go out of business, so we couldn't let it continue. Sorry.

Truth be told, as a long-time CDCC member, I have been somewhat underwhelmed with the club this year. I love CD, no doubt, but with some of the MASSIVE delays and the decrease in the gift card % off this year, for the first time, I might have to really think hard about joining again next year. Rejoining has been automatic for me up to this point. Not trying to be negative or anything, just honest. No doubt I'll be blown away by the CDCC offers the second half of the year and I'll eat my words. Hopefully that will be the case.
    But thank you for coming out of lurkdom, we do appreciate the feedback! There tends to be an ebb and a flow to the CDCC. And if you read the latest Sleeping Beauties update, hopefully the clears up a little about the massive delays we've been dealing with.

    There will be new books to announce this summer, more deals to offer, and probably a few more exclusive "just for the CDCC if you're interested" type specials, so hopefully you'll see something you dig.

    Thanks again! Feel free to stick around. Everyone here is nice and friendly!

The book in and of itself makes up about 30% of the value of the CDCC and the discounts we do offer more than make up the rest of that difference (not even counting the discounted certs). So far for this CDCC we've sent 60 some odd notes (advance notices, exclusive offeres, discounts). That averages out to about 2 notes a week which is pretty on par for the past. Obviously the stuff we have to offer may not always be what you're interested in, because the stuff we have to offer is going to be different every year.

    But like a service like Amazon Prime you have to weigh if the value is worth it for what you're interested in. Generally though if you're someone who buys a lot from us, the CDCC is really good value for your money.
    100 % agree. Not every book of offer is for me and that's fine. And like I said earlier sometimes the early notifications are enough to entrust U get a copy of a book I want. I've been apart of every cdcc and will continue to be for the long haul. Oh and still a 25% savings on the gift certificates when they run that special is still pretty awesome. Between that and the coupon codes that are offered on some books it's still a great deal.
