There are never free shipping codes at J&R . There are items that have free shipping when added to your cart everything ships free. I was unable so far to find anything really cheap that has free shipping . Hopefully someone on these boards will find something.

i tried that there was a mention of a MASTER warranty thing for 1.99 that shipped FREE and allowed everything else to ship FREE but that didn't work this time the free shipping showed for that only everything was charged ... ;( maybe someone else knows something...

Those $15.99 Monk sets are tempting me to blind-buy them, but I've spent enough at DDD's sale. I hate collecting DVDs sometimes.

No the site is VERY SLOW both on IE and Mozilla ;(

and although the DVDS don't ship until the NOV 24th they still authorize your CC with a Hold of the full amount.. it seems

I got 6 to work myself. Put all 6 in, then the 1.99 item.
Monk 1-4, Las Vegas 1-2.

I was on the fence about another DDD order, but now that i just spent $100 here that pretty much decided no more DDD for me.

Same here. A couple hours ago I put a total of 6 $4.99 DVDs and the $2.49 in-ear headphones into my cart in a mixed sequence and got the free shipping. $32.43 + $2.71 NYC tax (grrr-r-r-rowl) = $35.14 total.

In past J and R sales, they have canceled items that go out of stock rather than put them backordered as other E-tailers do. So get your orders in sooner rather than later for your the best chance of getting what you ordered.

Season 1 of House has dropped back down to $15.99!

I just ordered it along with the headphones to get free shipping.

BTW, it wasn't listed on the "Black Friday" sales pages. Use the Search feature under Movies/Television.

Thanks OP!

Nothing for me this sale. Many of these J&R had last November and I bought them then... a lot of them dropped $1 each and a few went up (like "Chicago"). A couple I was on the fence about (like The Missing 2-DVD) are out of stock now since I didn't have time until today to read through the list. I saw lots of cheap TV series in the list which I've never seen or heard of like Monk and Hercules: The Legendary Heroes. They aren't cheap enough for blind buys.

Hi all,

I have placed several orders during this J&R black friday sale. I use the strategay of placing six items in the cart and then purchasing the $2.50 microphone and the order stated that there is FREE UPS shipping on the order receipt. Six items in the cart was the limit because if you put more than 6 items in addition to the microphone, then the FREE shipping goes away. I ordered many DVD's so had to placed several orders separately.

I am now very concerned that they may not give me the FREE shipping thing on the DVDs. It looks like they will separate the DVDS out from the microphone and ship it out seprately. The microphone is out of stock at the moment and the shipping for that on the order states UPS. The DVD's on the order has "Parcet Post" listed as the shipping method. Are they going to charge me shipping cost for the DVD's since they are shipping it separately from the microphone. The original sales receipt said shipping was free though. Does anyone know? I have never dealt with this company before. If they charge me for shipping, then the cost of the DVD's will turn out to be more than if I buy it at DDD. Have anyone here brought DVD's from this company last year on their black friday sale and used the strategy of adding an item that carries with it free shipping to get total overall shipping free???
If I don't get free shipping on the DVDS, I would like to cancel the order before they go out. Apparently they won't go out till November 24, 2006.

Well, I ordered the first day of the sale (got everything I wanted, including 2 of some sets...stuck to one account so as not to be piggish about it although could have "loaded up" at these prices). So far I have only received some of the individual titles (Patton, Towering Inferno, etc.)...no box sets yet (and I ordered a bunch). I could have saved over $100 using Google checkout, but to be honest, I don't think it was there early in the sale. And if you didn't order early, you missed out on some of the sets.

Incidentally, I'm a little peeved about the copy of Butch Cassidy SE they sent. It was fine except it didn't have the beautiful outer sleeve (which is different from the artwork on the DVD cover). If the DVD had been $5.99, I wouldn't quibble...but it was $10.99 + around $1 shipping (average per DVD)...only $3 cheaper than Amazon's price with free Prime shipping. I'm thinking about contacting them to see if they would send a replacement. At this price, I really expect to get the full package (all the other special editions came with the slipcover). Anybody else have this problem?

So is anyone else getting the runaround from these jokers, or am I the lucky one? I ordered the headphones + Leave it to Beaver S1&2 and The Office S1 the day the sale started. All dvd's were listed as in stock, ships in 1-2 days and the headphones were on back order. So after two weeks of nothing, I call and the rep says the headphones came in today and will ship in 1-2 days. I ask if everything will ship together, and the answer was no, the dvd's ship separately. I asked if they shipped separately, then why weren't the dvd's shipped earlier. Apparently, The Office is out of stock (the one disc that was for me), despite it being listed as in stock when I ordered.

Finally got tired of waiting & called yesterday (12/6). CSR informed me that they were "having a hard time getting supplies from their vendors" (this for items advertised as "in stock"...ordered the first day of their sale). Got a followup email today (they ignored my email a week ago) saying they have a "fill or kill" policy...basically, they try to obtain stock for 14 days & then cancel orders. I can understand a company mistakenly listing an item as being "in stock" and then discovering that it had been a clerical mistake...but 27 items??? I didn't buy a couple of on-sale items at Circuit City, Best Buy, etc. on Black Friday because I had already ordered a week before form J & R. This is the worst recommendation for an online story that I can think of.

On a related note, I expressed my disappointment that my copy of Butch Cassidy was missing the slipcase (which features a great portrait of Newman/Redford that is different from the art on the case). It took forever to get her to understand the problem (she kept thinking I wanted to exchange a less expensive, older version for the special edition). I told her that I could obtain a copy for a couple of dollars more if they couldn't replace the "defective" copy (I view it as the same as buying a hardcover book that is missing the dust jacket) and would simply return their copy for a refund. She finally gave up (saying "So you're determined to get that slipcase, right?") and offered a price adjustment. When I asked how much of an adjustment, she offered to refund the shipping for the small shipment they DID send on Nov. 24. Since the shipping amounted to over $8, I agreed. It was a hassle to deal with but worth it...it made Butch Cassidy less than $4 (assuming they follow through with the refund). I appreciated her doing that for me although she made me work for it!! She also said they would put a "rush" on the unshipped ("processing") items...whatever that means. I certainly hope they live up to their commitment...otherwise, I wasted a lot of time & effort (not to mention missing out on a couple of sales on the same items Nov. 24). I have never had this problem with DDD although they have had to cancel a couple of backordered items...but at least they didn't advrtise them as being "in stock".

I'm still waiting to hear about my small (6 DVDs) order placed the first day. I got my cheap POS ear bud headphones which were OOS but none of my "In-Stock" DVDs has shipped. I wonder how many of our titles are posted on the new J&R sale page. So far this has not lived up to even my lowest expectations.

Finally got tired of waiting & called yesterday (12/6). CSR informed me that they were "having a hard time getting supplies from their vendors" (this for items advertised as "in stock"...ordered the first day of their sale). Got a followup email today (they ignored my email a week ago) saying they have a "fill or kill" policy...basically, they try to obtain stock for 14 days & then cancel orders. I can understand a company mistakenly listing an item as being "in stock" and then discovering that it had been a clerical mistake...but 27 items??? I didn't buy a couple of on-sale items at Circuit City, Best Buy, etc. on Black Friday because I had already ordered a week before form J & R. This is the worst recommendation for an online story that I can think of.


I'm in the same boat. I have yet to receive anything. I've checked my order status so many times online that I've memorized the order number! It has been listed as "processing" since day one.... and I also ordered the first day of the sale.

I wonder why Circuit City, Best Buy, Target, FYE, Fryes, Blockbuster,
etc, etc... are NOT "having a hard time getting supplies from their vendors"??

How about we organize a caravan of customers who have never received their "in-stock, shipping Nov. 24" items, then go surround their headquarters & hold hostages until our DVDs are released?

My copy of House Season One arrived a few days after Black Friday in a padded envelope. Fortunately it was undamaged.

Today, the $2.49 earbud headphones arrived in a toaster-sized box filled with soft airbag bagging. That was total overkill. The same sort of thing happened during last year's J&R sale.

They really need to upgrade their packaging robot to a newer model.

My complete 6 DVD order arrived today and they e-mailed me the shipping notice this morning. It was a local delivery- Queens, NY to Manhattan. Shipped in another padded bag and one disc was loose but in perfect condition. Their deal handling makes recommending them hard.

I got my earbud 'phones earlier this week.

This morning I received two emails from J&R, one stating that my American Dreams Season 1 set had been cancelled, the other announcing shipment of my remaining four items. So I went to check my order status on their site (something I've done many times over the past few weeks like some of you), and noticed that the DVDs had indeed been shipped - but also that I had been charged $6.95 for Parcel Post shipping, even though I still have my original email receipt showing free shipping for the entire order.

Has anyone else had any titles cancelled and/or been assessed shipping charges after the fact?

This happened to me during their sale last year. I called a CSR and she refused to do anything without me faxing a copy of my receipt. I don't have a fax machine so I thought I would just forget it, but I sent off an email to customer service that simply said something like "refund x amount, I have been overcharged." They never responded, but my card was refunded.

Thanks, starman9000. I just spoke with a very nice CSR who promised to refund the shipping charges, as well as reactivate my order for the cancelled item. So I've got my fingers crossed.

Well, I got my form email today...

"fill or kill" policy...basically, they will try to obtain stock for 14 days & then cancel what ever they can't get."

Over 2 weeks since the order was placed and this is the first email I have gotten from them. Placed the order before Thankgsgiving but I'll be lucky to get anything before Christmas!!

Yeah, they're full of crap. I ordered my discs w/ headphones on 11/16, and they shipped the headphones on 12/2 (16 days). I called them today asking why the last disc that was not in stock and supposedly holding up my order (Office S1) was listed in stock the past 2 days but my sets have not yet shipped. I've had a temp charge on my card for all three discs's since 12/2. CSR was very nice, but didn't know a darn thing. She kept claiming that the cd/dvd dept. on the floor of the store handled those sales and shipping and there wasn't a way to tell if the items truly were in stock (shades of buy.com here). She said something about re-submitting my order. I guess she was referring to that phantom 14 day policy- which by the way I could only find stated when an item was listed as out of stock and thus wasn't made clear to me at my time of purchase of my 3 in stock dvd's. She said she would try to contact them and get an answer and I should call back monday. Man, if someone could create a webstore where all the departments were connected and actually knew what was going on, it'd be a license to print money.

Too bad about all of this. J&R is a great store here in NY, but I guess they are much better at selling electronics and the like, than at selling DVD's. I tried to get on their site the day this deal was posted, and could hardly get anywhere it was so slow. Glad I skipped this sale.

Yeah, it is kind of a shame that they have screwed up so badly. We have ordered from J&R for years (televisions, VCRs, CD recorders, blank media, CD's, you name it) and have been on their catalog mailing list for at least 2 decades. They have always been efficient until now, but it seems that they were totally unprepared to handle this sale. Glad to hear that some orders are being filled. Guess I'll go back & check my order status for the millionth time.

Update: Just got shipping notice on about 3/5 of my order (still 12 items missing in action). Also today got a cancellation notice for Leave It To Beaver Season 2. Checked the website & it is listed as being "in stock". Called J&R to confirm that it actually is "in stock"...very arrogant CSR huffily said that he "could not confirm availability of any prerecorded items" but that if it is listed as "in stock, ships in 1-2 days", then he would 'assume' (cue haughty voice) that the item is in stock. I said Fine, then let me order it as the replacement item for my cancelled order...which is what the email recommended...they would offer an alternative or replacement with FREE SHIPPING (of course, the 'replacement' would be an item selling for the same price as the item ordered, which of course was on sale at the time). He was a little taken aback, stammered a little, asked for order number, and looked it up. Then he informed me that he couldn't give it to me for the sale price. I asked why the original order had been cancelled (no reason given in the email) and he replied (cue exasperated voice) "Because it wasn't available at that time!!!" I asked why, if that was the case, the item had been listed as being "in stock". He fell back on the "Sir, we cannot confirm in stock status of prerecorded items." Eventually, he was forced to admit that their website "in stock" listings were meaningless (cue slightly more humble voice...but not much). No apologies or anything given for any of this. I thanked him (why, I'll never know) and hung up.
The moral of this story is DO NOT BELIEVE J&R WHEN THEY CONFIRM DVD ORDERS OR AVAILABILITY STATUS OF DVDS. If you find it on sale at a comparable price elsewhere, better grab it...or you may be left with nothing (unless you want to pay $47.99 for an item that was "on sale" for $14.99). Keep in mind that this order was placed during the first hours of the sale.
This sordid affair is a truly sad comment on the lack of professionalism on J&R's part. This is my last order with them (and I still don't know if I'll get the other items...the shipping notice was for items that were supposed to ship 3 weeks ago). I'm fortunate in that none of these items were for Christmas gifts...I can give them to the recipients later in the year (the items that weren't for me personally). Some other people may not have been so lucky, or may have skipped buying the items elsewhere on Black Friday because they had already ordered from J&R.

I can't believe how much of a joke this company is. They dropped the temp charge for my items, then submitted another temp charge 3 days later, but I still haven't received a shipping notice. I hope Leave it Beaver S2 isn't out of stock, I was told over a week ago that both S1 and S2 were in stock and they were just waiting for The Office to come in. How can they not have the foresight to retain those items for people that have already ordered them? Normally I would find it hard to believe that a company would take an order for something they claim is in stock, and yet it's not- but I've also been dealing w/ Buy.com for the past 3 weeks. Well, I filed a BBB complaint on buy.com and looks like J&R is getting one too.

Good grief. I made 2 orders on the 21st. Title were supposed to ship on the 24th with UPS ground. I recieved shipping notices on the 2nd, but have not recieved anything yet. Today, the 16th, I recieved 2 more shipping notices saying they shipped USPS with no tracking #. So, unless this last notice is wrong, it is probably going to take well over a month to recieve my dvds.

Rats! Came home today after making some enjoyable trades/sells at the flea market & found a USPS message saying they had tried to deliver but needed a signature. Now I have to wait until Monday to find out which items finally shipped from J&R. Along with the recent cancellation notice for Beaver Season 2, I received a shipping notification email saying that "the rest" of my order had been shipped. Unfortunately, there were still about 12 items missing according to the email listings. (Also got cancellation notice from FYE saying they couldn't obtain Indiana Jones although it listed as "in stock" on their Deal of the Day. Guess this kind of thing is getting contagious).

I received my full order today. They were kind enough to ship it priority rather than parcel, which was nice. Even though I didn't get it in time to ship some titles out as a gift, it did arrive by x-mas, which I consider a small miracle. I still don't understand why they choose to sell titles online using their salesfloor as a source rather than a warehouse, but at least they made good on their sales pricing. Now, if that buy.com would finally arrive.

Glad some of you got your orders. They cancelled 12 items including Leave It To Beaver (both seasons), 1st seasons of Las Vegas, American Dreams, Monk, Northern Exposure...you get the picture. No rhyme of reason as to how orders got filled. I've complained enough in this thread about J&R...but (to repeat) I really am glad for those who got everything they ordered.

Only got 3 out of my 4 DVDs. I received an email saying they were willing to allow me to substitute another DVD for the one that was no longer in stock. After called 2 different phone reps, they had no idea whatsoever about allowing a substitution and simply tells me that Google will credit me on the unshipped item. Being that it will drop me below $30 in my purchase, I hope they don't eliminate my $10 off $30 Google coupon since this is no fault of mine.

I have had no problem in redordering the same canceled item back again, at sale price w/free shipping. In fact, I just did so a second time (for the same item). One of the agents told me to just keep calling back and reordering it until it shipped...

They've been very nice about it (although who knows if it ever will ship, I guess?).

I didn't order the cheap dvds in the black friday sale but I did order with the GCO during that time. After 3 emails that they never bothered responding to and 2 phone calls, they finally shipped my order (order placed Nov. 23rd). Of course it won't be here in time for Christmas and it was part of my daughter's Christmas. Fortunately she's old enough to understand but I won't bother to order from them again. Really poor customer service and their 1-2 business day shipping should read 1-2 MONTH shipping. I was definitely not impressed with them.

This is the problem I have with them. Evidently the customer's treatment depends upon the CSR, not company policy. I was told that they definitely COULD NOT reorder the canceled item at the same price. In fact, the CSR was really rude about the whole thing...arrogant, insulting, and impatient to get me off the phone, although I tried hard to be polite the entire time.

You know what? Screw them. I placed my order on November 16 and it's been "processing" this entire time. I called 3 times during the past month and was told each time that they would check with the warehouse and see what the problem was and that they would make sure it shipped. The last time I told them to ship what they had so I could get it by Christmas, they said fine. That was a week and a half ago. I called this morning and cancelled the whole order. This is the absolute worst service I have ever gotten from an online company.

I can't help but feel that because the prices were so good in their pre-Thanksgiving Day sale and the fact I managed to use a Google coupon on top of that, they would do anything not to honor the price. I'm still waiting to see if any credit is made to my credit card from the DVD they canceled. I will file a complaint with Google if one doesn't show. It's bad enough there's no consistency in how CSRs handle problems and everything depends on how nice a CSR you happen to get on the phone. After getting 2 phonereps who couldn't help me at all, and getting a latest email from them that they're too busy to answer emails at this time, I'm getting a bit turned off from ordering from them again. Bad that this happening as I have been a good customer of their B+M store for years and never encountered bad service of any kind from them until now.

I have a question. One item each from three of my orders were canceled. I reviewed my credit card charge and google did charge me for the entire order for each of the three orders. Does Jr.com offer you getting a replacement DVD for the same price as the DVD you ordered and was cancelled? I assume they will give you free shipping if they do right? Does anyone know? I have not yet called them to discuss getting replacement DVD. I will probably wait till after Christmas to try to resolve this.

Here's the problem with Google Checkout. If there's an item missing from an order due to OOS, then the first $10 applied towards a refund is credited to the Google promotion. So if someone should want that refund they would have to pay to ship the rest of the order back to the webstore. I think my understanding of their process is correct and I continue to use it-- carefully.

I'm not sure I follow. I had an item backordered and cancelled by Buy.com, and my credit card was credited the money, even though without the item I fell below the $50 google cut-off. So I got the credit back and still got to keep the google discount.

The reports I've heard have all said that when a cancellation occurs they were charged the screen price for any items they kept and the first $20 of credit for items dropped was returned to Google. Don't forget that the card was charged by Google not the merchant. When I had a GCO return to DVDEmpire the final e-mail noting the credit applied to card was from Google. Maybe they're fine tuning the process-glad it worked out well for you.

I really don't agree if the cancellations are occuring because the seller, whether it be Buy.com or J&R, is the one dropping the items off the order, not the customer. What's to prevent them from cheating a good number of their customers out of their Google discounts by simply dropping items here and there so they no longer meet the minimum purchase requirement of the coupon? What Buy.com did of refunding you the price of the canceled item and letting you keep the discount sounds like the fair and proper way to conduct business especially if they care anything about keeping customers. I have to see what J&R does. Being that my canceled DVD only costs $6.99, if they refuse to mail me to send me the canceled DVD or allow me to substitute it with something else, and also refuse to refund me the cost of it, I would definitely be upset and think twice before ordering from them again. Sometimes a business should put customer satisfaction above possibly cheating their customers out of a few bucks.

consoleman
12-29-06, 06:28 PM
For anyone who has received an email from J&R to substitute another item for items that are out-of-stock, has anyone been able to do this over the phone? They simply give you the spiel about Google refunding the cost of the item. I have yet to see a refund of any kind.

Just curious to see if anyone else is encountering similar problems.
