Re: Mystery $2 DVD Box Set (+free shipping)

Placed two orders and am optimistically hoping for the Hitchcock set but realistically thinking that won't happen. Paid through PayPal and didn't realize until after placing the second order that I had never updated my address with them when I moved. Updated and sent an email to 1saleaday hoping to be able to update the orders but I'm thinking I just wasted $4 for nothing. Oh well, could be worse.

Thanks. I bit for 5, and hoping for the Puppet Master set.

In for 3 because...why not? Hoping for the WWII set and Puppet Master. Anyone interesting in setting up a trade (especially if they send out stuff not listed in the ad)?

Looks like the inventory level of the Hitchcock collection over at the Outlet did not change. Hope that doesn't mean they were trying to sell through the crap first...

I'm totally interested, but we all gotta see what we get first.

Things like this are usually done with only 1 copy of something good and the rest is the cheap stuff. They're in the business to make money and they aren't going to do it by sending out expensive stuff.

You might as well buy mystery boxes on ebay or grab bags from the dollar store or lotto tickets.

Re: Mystery $2 DVD Box Set (+free shipping)

For $2 bucks I took a shot. If I get something crappy, I could always give it to someone else who may like it. I looked at it this way, if I get the puppetmaster box, I'll be thrilled, but I won't be any more disappointed than when I pissed away $5 on a megamillions ticket the other night.

Re: Mystery $2 DVD Box Set (+free shipping)

In for 5. If any one of them is Hitchcock, Puppetmaster, or War series, it'll be worth it!

Re: Mystery $2 DVD Box Set (+free shipping)

I just figured I was paying $2 shipping, and getting the thing for free. That way if I get crap, it was free technically.

Me too...let the anticipation begin.

This is my first "mystery purchase" of anything since I paid to pick from a mystery box of baseball cards and got a Larry Doby autograph back when I was like 14.

Me too, and I think they used UPS, which was surprising for $2.

Yeah they did. I am shocked as well. I wonder if they even made a profit on this one.

Mine is coming USPS... hoping that it means its a big heavy one coming media mail

Edit- Looks like I didn't read and just clicked the tracking number which took me to USPS but it is indeed coming UPS mail innovations. Hope that doesn't mean its not a big boxset
