Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

Okay, I've been a pretty big booster of Deep Discount but I gotta warn people about what occurred. I made a rather large additional purchase a couple of days ago. They ran a "pre-authorization" charge for the order on my debit card for the full amount and then ran the debit again when it shipped. The pre-authorization remained and threw my checking account into negative territory and my bank levied overdraft fees. When I was at Best Buy today to pick up "Batman v Superman," my card was declined. Watch your cards and these transactions. While these are good deals, that organization's procedures are a total fail and the time wasted on phone calls to Deep Discount and my bank became a major aggravation.

Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

That's not uncommon ordering online. CC's are the best in case there is a charge that drops later.

Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

Yeah. I would never, ever, EVER use a debit card for online purchases.

Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

I'm not seeing waht DD did wrong. It's sounds like they went through the normal procedures. They just happened to ship so fast that your bank's holding period hadn't ended yet, but each bank has their own length of time the temp charge/hold stays on the account.

Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

Unfortunately, those double pre auths are common. I have one from Pono at the moment. I have no idea why they feel a need to get 2 pre auths.

Some of us only have debit cards.

That has never happened to me before. But I never put much into this checking account. It's for my discretionary spending. I just try to refrain from using credit at all costs now after I was laid off a few years ago...I am debt averse. If I don't have the cash now, I don't need it...whatever "it" may be.

Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

I don't like debt either which is why I pay off my credit cards each month. Plus I get 3 to 5% back depending on the card. And it is much safer using a credit card than a debit card.

Yeah, I understand how credit cards work... But had you experienced what I went through you would understand. This keeps me disciplined.

Exactly. Unless somebody is will power challenged, it's better to pay with CC's and pay off the full balance so one can get the perks. We never charge more than we can pay off each month and we basically pay for everything with a CC. Even our utility bills and groceries.

Eight Men Out

Meanwhile
I received an immediate shipping notice on everything except Hollywood Shuffle. It was cancelled after a few days. Then I noticed it back in stock after another few days. I called and was able to get an order placed just for that title at the sale price. Kind of a PITA, but at least all four are en route.

Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

Ended up sitting this one out. Three titles I wanted, but couldn't find a fourth. Almost got Breeders for the fourth; nice cover but the movie's a total POS and just couldn't pull the trigger.

Maybe next time...

Well, all good things must come to an end. I hope they bring on some terrific titles before the next sale.

Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

I ended up buying two more BD's just as the sale was winding down, padded with another BD for free shipping. Aside from a handful of potential blind buys, I am largely back at square one with Olive, and very pleased. Now all we need is a similar sale on Kino products.

Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

All I know is I watched Roller Boogie last night and it is an amazing piece of cheese. I loved it!

Now where is Skatetown U.S.A.???

Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

Thanks for the heads-up. Glad this is an annual thing, apparently. Grabbed these to finish off the remaining Olive stuff I want to either see and sell, or own:

The Monster Of Piedras Blancas
The Horrible Dr. Hichcock
The Return of Dracula
Tam Lin
Strategic Air Command
One Of Our Aircraft Is Missing
Won Ton Ton, The Dog Who Saved Hollywood (curious to see this ever since it made the Golden Turkey Awards)
The Geisha Boy
Rock-A-Bye Baby
Who's Minding the Store

Only thing left for me now are four Signature Series upgrades, and these BOGO prices seem to be as low as they've gone . . .

Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

The prices were a little cheaper when the sale first started.

I highly recommend Strategic Air Command for Jimmy Stewart fans. The film transfer looks great.

I think they did that last year, too, although I ordered almost immediately when that one went live and the regular price was $20.97 out of the gate, so I can live with $20.99 this year, as long as that "little cheaper" wasn't crazy lower (?).

They were closer to $17 at first.
