Columbia House adds BDs to enrollment selections

Just thought I'd post it here for people that don't follow the CH threads.

You can get 7 BDs for $12.89 plus tax if applicable in your state. You will then be obligated to buy 2 more movies within 2 years.

See this thread for more details.

Re: Columbia House adds BDs to enrollment selections

Thanks for the heads-up. I may actually need to rejoin CH at some point to get a bunch of stuff I've been waiting to hit sale prices.

Thanks OP, maybe it's time to give CH another chance.

Re: Columbia House adds BDs to enrollment selections

I was a member of CH years ago (like, 15 or more) and it was for CDs. Are the BDs the same as ones I'd buy in-store? I know that might sound like a dumb question, but I just wanted to be sure. I might be into signing up if I only have to buy 2 titles in 2 years.

You must have quite a BD collection or specific tastes to not be able to find 7 out of the nearly 800 titles available.

As soon as I receive my first order I'm going to cancel and go back for 7 more.

Not really all that big by most standards on this board but between the BR and HD it's somewhere under 300. I did find 5 but I will admit I am very picky about which movies I want to own. I'll watch just about any piece of crap but there are very few I want to own.

I don't have a ton of BR yet myself, but I have to admit that I could only come up with about 20 enrollements that I was interested in (that I didn't already have), and almost ALL of them will be upgrades from DVD's I already own.

I'm with you. I've got pretty much all I want that's out. My wishlist is almost all pre-orders right now, so it's tough to find 7 titles. Of course, I'm jealous of the guys getting 7 Blu-rays for $13 with some of the same titles I paid $30 apiece!!!

Go to the DVD Club section and someone was nice enough on page 5 or 6 I believe and posted a spreadsheet with the roughly 700+ titles that are eligible for the 1st part of the enrollment(titles eligible for $0.49 part of the deal).

I think I recently read in one of the CH threads that most of the Paramount titles are going pending a renegotiation with the studio.

Re: Columbia House adds BDs to enrollment selections

A word of waring-

My order has started processing. All 7 titles I ordered through the initial offer are listed as "backordered" with an expected shipping date of between 2 weeks and about 2 months in the future.

Be prepared for the possibility that your "discounted" discs don't show up for a long time or that you end up with rainchecks from CH that you'll have to use on something else.

Me too - all my 7 titles are listed as backordered. Has anyone in this forum started receiving their enrollment titles?

Re: Columbia House adds BDs to enrollment selections

I scoured the entire list of enrollment selections and settled on the following Blu-Ray titles:

Shutter Island
Doomsday
Forrest Gump
Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Collective Soul & the Atlanta Youth Symphony: Home (or something like that)
Dances With Wolves
Pirate Radio

My credit card has been charged and I have been assigned an account number. However, when looking at the order history for my account the status of each selection reads “Backordered”. Two of the titles are expected to be back in stock on 05/02/11 but there’s no word on the rest of them.

If this is how CH will continue to operate I’m afraid this very well could be my last account with them. The savings just aren’t worth the trouble.

Well, I'm sure they have just been slammed with orders since they started having BD's as enrollments. Usually they wouldn't have this many people ordering the same titles in a matter of a few days. Heck, I doubt they've ever had this many people signing up for new accounts in such a short period either. I'm sure they will be fine going forward, once they get in enough stock to cover the initial orders... Personally, I'm in no hurry to receive anything. I have enough of a backlog to last me the rest of the year, and into next year. I guarantee they'll ship em faster than DD did last fall.

The suckiest part is that this will slow down the amount of time for us to cycle accounts, which is what us CH regulars typically do...

If waiting for backorders is too much "trouble" for you then maybe you shouldn't be bargain shopping. I'm sure there are places with these in stock at full price.
