Shield-Individual Seasons Available for Enrollment on the DVD Site

Thread title says it all. All 7 seasons of The Shield are now available as enrollment selections on the DVD site. Using this link-

http://www.columbiahouse.com/pages/n....jsp?YSID=1556

-you can get the entire run for $12.89 with only 2 fulfillment titles to buy later.

I wonder if that is in error. One day last week, I noticed that there were a number of box set titles available for enrollment that shouldn't have been. I saw TV seasons like Dexter, Dark Shadows: complete series like Man From UNCLE, BattleStar Galactica, Monk, Star Trek: The Next Generation. I also saw movie sets like the Abbott and Costello Universal Pictures Collection, the Pedro Almodovar set etc. When I looked again a day or 2 later they were back to Members Only. I wonder if these Shield sets are ones they forgot to fix.

I thought I had posted this on another thread last week but I can't find it. I wonder if I forgot to Submit or experienced a network issue.

Earlier this year I got the last two seasons I needed via a regular 7:2 enrollment. This was probably right before the Blu Rays started popping up, so keep an eye out!

The glitch box sets seem to members only again but they still have Monk The Complete Series for an enrollment. Probably worth it to try and get that as an enrollment title with the 7:2 cause its resale value should be around $100.

Just clicked the link in the OP again and all of the individual seasons are still available to choose. It's only the complete series that shows up as a "members only" title.

I think he was referring to the sets I mentioned in my post.

Re: Shield-Individual Seasons Available for Enrollment on the DVD Site

Great deal of The Shield. Too bad I already own them all.

Too bad they don't have the Law & Order sets for enrollment, especially SVU. I would rack up on some of those.

I noticed they do have season 1 of Breaking Bad for enrollment. Good show.

We now have an answer. It must have been a glitch because it's no longer available for enrollment. They also finally fixed the Monk glitch.

Re: Shield-Individual Seasons Available for Enrollment on the DVD Site

Guess I got in on it. Charge to my credit card still shows pending. I got an e-mail telling me I could access my account--logged in to see a current director's selection and the seasons of The Shield show as shipped in my order history.

I received the enrollment order I placed last week while the glitch was active. It included Star Trek: The Next Generation Complete Series, The Man From UNCLE Complete Series, Upstairs Downstairs Complete series, Abbott and Costello Universal Pictures Collection. I wish I had found this in time to cycle or open multiple accounts but it closed quickly. Still, getting those for .49 each is the deal of a lifetime.

Re: Shield-Individual Seasons Available for Enrollment on the DVD Site

I placed an order a little after midnight on the 7th for the last four seasons of the Shield, both seasons of Reaper, season five of the Dead Zone and Monk: the Complete Series. Everything is listed as backordered, with Monk expected to be in stock on the 12th.

Pretty much the same story with me. I got STNG complete series, STOS 1, STOS 2, Incredible Hulk 3, Incredible Hulk 5, and Little House 9.
Also my best haul ever. And have already received them.
Only thing i noticed not long after i made my selections i seen i could of gotten STOS 3 as well. It didn't show up in the Star Trek search but was listed as a related Dvd when i looked up season 1. Also for $1
Maybe next time.

Does anybody know if this was a mistake or not?

On a unrelated note i just did a search for Star Trek again and neither the STNG complete series or any of STOS seasons came up in the search, but they did last time. Only when i searched exact titles did i find them. That is strange.

Since they are no longer available as enrollments, I would venture to guess that it was a mistake. That and giving away $400 plus box sets as an enrollment isn't exactly a winning business model. The shipping of these heavy sets probably cost CH more than what you were charged. Next time that they have this glitch, you might want to go for all 8 enrollments.

This was definitely the one time you wanted to take them up on the offer of an additional selection for 9.99. I certainly did.

Re: Shield-Individual Seasons Available for Enrollment on the DVD Site

I put through a couple of memberships just after midnight on the 8th with the Monk set as one of the selections. This afternoon both showed up approved and shipped - but without Monk or any explanation of why. Considering that when something is out of stock they've always listed it as backordered, I guess I should conclude that it's bye-bye Adrian. You'd think I had tried to order a Touchpad...

They sent me one Thriller and cancelled the other,though it is still available through the club.
My Monks are currently in "backordered expected in stock on 09/12/11" status.

I received my order today, sans Monk. I knew that Sony re-released the Shield, but I didn't realize they released the series in widescreen. I have the Fox versions of season 1-3, which are in full screen. Now I have to decide if it's worth it to get the widescreen Sony versions of 1-3, or keep the one's I have.

Re: Shield-Individual Seasons Available for Enrollment on the DVD Site

I tried to sneak another account through (included Monk: Complete Series) right before they figured out there were titles that shouldn't be there but it didn't work. I received a letter stating my application wasn't accepted because the titles I chose "aren't available for enrollment".
