(DEAD) Mad Men Season 3 $23.09 shipped at Overstock

Title says it all. It's over half off for a March 23 preorder of one of the best shows on television. Search for SKU 12510460 at overstock.com. Price is $20.14 plus $2.95 shipping. Go through bing for 7% back ($1.41). Currently $34.99 at Amazon.

Seems like it's easy enough to cancel the order if a cheaper price comes along, but I'll be satisfied with the under $22 price here after the rebate if it ends up being the cheapest.

(Oddly enough the DVD is only $10.64 - item 12510459)

I'm not a huge fan of the fact that they charge immediately upon order placement, and their shipping takes forever. It's probably still worth waiting and seeing what the release week price is.

Tempting, but waiting for ~$15 worked for the first two seasons, hopefully it will again.

I can't remember the last time I ordered from overstock.com. It's been many, many years. I didn't even know they were still around...

The last time I ordered from them was when I got the Complete Calvin and Hobbes for $75.

I haven't placed an order with them in over three years, but I couldn't resist that price. Thanks, OP!

Thanks for the deal, OP. I ordered one. By the time I get this, I should have a PS3 and maybe a new HDTV.

Yeah, it had been a few years since I shopped at the O...

I do recall the one time I tried to get in on a seeming price mistake they canceled the orders and issued ($5?) credits so I'm not optimistic about this one.

Overstock just cancelled my order and refunded the charge on my credit card. I used Paypal and was notified by Paypal that the charge was being refunded.

What does your order status say when you log in? Mine is still listed as in progress and "Presale, expected to ship Mar 23, 2010"--haven't received an e-mail from my credit card saying I got a refund.

It says in process with a charge of $.00. When you click on the order it says canceled .

Surprisingly at the same time I got the cancellation notice I got
Overstock.com Customer Care Satisfaction Survey.
They have to be kidding.

Same here, cancelled. Sorry everyone, I was really hoping this one would pan out, especially because it wasn't as ridiculous a discount as the DVD version.

I think that we all just floated Overstock a short-term interest-free loan.

I thought that price was too good to be true. Oh well. I was expecting to pay about $30-$35 for it anyways.

DVD Empire has it for $29.99 including shipping.

I just did a live chat since they cancelled my order but never credited my card. They created a new order for the price of $0.00. The guy was quite nice actually, even though it took forever. We'll see what happens in 6 weeks, but it seems like it's going to work out. I suggest contacting them before throwing in the towel.

I got one of those surveys too, along with my cancellation notice. So I filled it out, marking "Completely Dissatisfied", etc. for everything... and got a phone call a few days later from one of their customer service reps, apologizing that they cancelled my order without any explanation, and offering me a $10 credit to use on my next order, so I used it to pick up Stranger Than Fiction: SE on Blu-ray for $11.26 shipped.

I guess we shouldn't expect any less from the company whose CEO is considered the "Nastiest in America." Will no longer float my money to them. Still waiting for the refund to go through. http://www.thebigmoney.com/articles/...s-nastiest-ceo

I'm not going to hold my breath now. I just got an email today saying they won't honor the "misprice" of the "DVD" so they're canceling the order and refunding my CC. I don't expect to get it now, but I suppose I didn't expect to get it in the first place.

For those of you who did not receive a cancellation notice, log in to Overstock and check your order status.

My order is showing shipped as of today via USPS with a Delivery Confirmation number. Should be arriving around next week's release date!
