That's actually a good question. Anybody have any idea? I think most here haven't even tried it because we don't/didn't think it would help us to fulfill...

I don't have an account that needs fulfilling, but I don't want to try it anyway...

Nope, I tried it. I bought Stand by Me which has a regular club price/MSRP of $24.95 on sale for $14.97 and it didn't count for fulfillment.

Re: Fulfilling your purchase commitment with 1 Blu-Ray title

FYI, I recently opened a new account and ordered The Green Hornet 3D (plus two DVDs with a B1G2 for $36 and change), and now my account says my purchase commitment has been fulfilled.

Re: Fulfilling your purchase commitment with 1 Blu-Ray title

Do you guys think a pre-order will work, or does it have until it ships for CH to figure this thing out and change it? (thinking about True Grit)

Re: Fulfilling your purchase commitment with 1 Blu-Ray title

I thought with an older web design, when placing an item in your cart it displayed if it was a fufilling item or not.... If I remember wrong, maybe it was a dream.. and would be really handy now...

Re: Fulfilling your purchase commitment with 1 Blu-Ray title

^You are correct. Before the re-design that was a feature of the cart. You could also have a title check out at the "regular" price to make it a fulfillment if it were on sale at a lower price which did not count. Example: On a B1/60% sale you could make that 60% off title "regular" price so it'd count as well.

Re: Fulfilling your purchase commitment with 1 Blu-Ray title

and we were able to cancel an order.. before it was done processing.. can't find that either..

I was all into the multiple fufillments with MSRP thing.. and put a TV set in the cart that was under 19.95 (along with a freebie DVD). Then it hit me.. that isn't a fufillment selection. So I was going to cancel. Yikes.

Yeah, I just received an email from CH about a certain OOP Paramount DVD that was initially backordered, but they didn't cancel it. They said, they will wait 30 days to see if they get it back and stock, but I could cancel if I want.

If I call to cancel it, do I get to pick a replacement (and how would I possibly get a Blu-ray, just by having it be less than the purchased titiel?) or do I need to wait the 30 days? I really would've liked to cancel out the account sooner rather than later.

From what you are saying it sounds like it, but don't qoute me on it since I have never had that experience. Mine had automatically came up cancelled. Let me know what ultimately happens as right now I am stuck on 1 backordered fulfillment title myself. thx

I was able to pick a BR as a replacement, I think they do those manually, so you just have to get lucky with the CSR.

Re: Fulfilling your purchase commitment with 1 Blu-Ray title

I thought you had to pay the full regular price (MSRP) for the Blu-Ray for it to be counted as a fulfillment, but from the conversation it doesn't seem to be that that's the case.

Can anyone confirm? Thanks

Good luck with that, when at least I got a blu as a replacement I was replacing another Blu.

Correct, and I don't even know of how many Blus you can even purchase at full regular price anyways as I'm pretty sure 99.99% are discounted right now.

You do NOT have to pay full price for a Blu-ray for it to be counted as a fulfillment. I've fulfilled a number of accounts with BDs and never paid the MSRP. In fact, I fulfilled a new account 2 days with one BD purchase and a BOGO code. I bought the BD of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest Ultimate Edition for 29.97 (MSRP is 49.95) and now my account is fulfilled.

Re: Fulfilling your purchase commitment with 1 Blu-Ray title

Sweet! Picked up the 300 BR set, and added a Criterion DVD (The Ruling Class) which I was able to flip on Glyde .. Once everything comes in I will cancel and repeat process. Thanks, OP!

Re: Fulfilling your purchase commitment with 1 Blu-Ray title

I ordered Mad Men Season 4 w/the BOGO code and it said my order was fulfilled.

The dvd I got free was backordered, so when I called to replace it (Somewhere, but like an idiot I read off the wrong selection #, so the CSR searched by title and processed the DVD instead of the BR I was shooting for).

But, now when I check my account it no longer says it is fulfilled, it is changed to needing to purchase 1 more title.

Just a word of caution to those w/backordered free titles.
