Hi i was wondering if any of you guys have ever
Bourght Dvds from Video now there prices are couple of dollars higher than amazon but no shipping that kicks ass
i live in R4 teritory so thats a big saving

Video now - Saving ryan $47 Australian
Amazon - '' '' $58 After shipping

This sounds good on the monitor but i think the shipping may be either a bit dogey or very slow

anyone have any expeariances or know of reliable stores that offer free shipping

And from my experience, I ordered two titles on the 30th of January and I am still awaiting delivery. The titles I order originally showed in stock but now one shows 3-4 weeks(Oliver Twist - Criterion Edition) and the other 1-2 weeks allthough it appears to be OOP(The Secret Life of Walter Mitty).
One additional comment, the search engine works very nice. It is on the upper right side of the screen as you read this

I ordered twice from there and have only had one problem where an out of stock item didn't turn up for six months but they kept me informed the whole time. It was only a crappy title so I wasn't in any hurry.

I probably wouldn't recommed them though to be honest with ya.

Lerroy, I live down here too and can get the listed DVD's cheaper than what you have listed there dude.

Email me if interested. :)

You are welcome. I also forgot to mention they have already charged my VISA for the sale.

I used to use and like them. But they seem to have deteriorated lately and didn't have the two titles I ordered in stock.

I guess you can try, if you must, and cancel (as I just did with no problem) if they don't ship within a couple of days. But I'm not as bullish on them as I was some months ago.

I ordered two dvd's. They charged my card immediately and showed the order as back ordered for a month. When I cancelled and complained they said they would tell accounting to credit my card. They have never done this, so I had to notify my credit card company to protest the charge. They are obviously next to going under and are running a ponzi scheme with orders.

I have had the same problem as well. They billed my credit card, and state that they shipped my DVD over 2 weeks ago. They no longer respond to e-mails. Stay away from this online vendor.

VIDEO-NOW ARE A BUNCH OF THIEVES!!!

I ordered a movie on January 20 , got charged the very next day and I still don't have it. The webpage still claims that it ships in 2-3 days and 2-3 month now seem more like it.
They claim to have shipped it now so I guess I wait a little longer. This is by far the worst transaction ever, stay away from them.

Last month I ordered Oliver Twist, which their website said was in stock. They charged my credit card the next day. The following day the website listed the title as out of stock. About a week later I got an e-mail saying the title had been discontinued (which of course, it hasn't) and that I could order something else or cancel the order. I cancelled the order and I've been e-mailing them ever since about getting a full credit on my credit card. Initially, I only received a partial credit. I got another e-mail today saying their accounting department sometimes falls behind due to volume and that's why I haven't received the full credit. Personally, I don't believe they ever intended to fill the order.

Update 4/2 -

I received the first item in the mail today. It took 2+ weeks to travel Air Mail from Toronto to Syracuse NY.
