On the other hand Amazon is showing a set with the same cover and films on DVD but it was released in 2012 and so would not be a preorder.

Impossible that JW set is a BD set. It is mislabeled - I have the DVD set and that's exactly what it is. Perhaps its being released with another disc or a new UPC and hence a re-release. Its def not a BD set

The code is still working for me. No intention of placing an order but I thought I'd just check. I recall last week the "Treasure Trove Thursday" 50% OFF code expired a bit soon, before midnight Central Time.

Yet THRIFTY was still successfully applied to in cart items.

I'm using Firefox.

Bluray.com shows a 7-disc John Wayne Collection on Blu-ray coming out on the day they've indicated, so it would seem to be legit.

After experimenting with different combos I discovered this message appears if:
1. Cart total before coupon exceeds $100
2. Everything in cart is ineligible for sale.

If cart is under $100 and you have a mix of eligible and ineligible, the coupon will apply successfully, giving the discount to the eligible items only. The others remain full price.

Anyone receive the Anne Frank/Book Thief combo pack from the last sale? Someone posted on another forum that they called CS to inquire as to the delay of this order and was informed they ran out. All subsequent orders were cancelled. I didn't get an email, and I'm not seeing a refund. Just curious if ANYONE received this?

Here is the DVD set:
http://www.foxconnect.com/john-wayne...idescreen.html
and the blu-ray set:
http://www.foxconnect.com/the-john-w...ollection.html

The consensus at blu-ray.com is that the Blu-ray set has the wrong desc and there are only 7 movies included. See walmart listing below (look at spine also to see listing of movies):
http://www.walmart.com/ip/35715653

I was going to pass, but I own Barbarian and the Geisha unopened so I thought I'd sell it to recoup half the cost. The rest would be blind buys.

no, I read that too. In fact I placed 2 orders for this (on 2 different accounts). One was standalone and was placed in the early hours of the sale because I was afraid it was a mistake. I then placed another order and included it as well -- the order shipped without the AF/BT combo, which isn't a good sign. Though my order history does not show cancelled for either of the orders. Fox has plenty of both BDs I'm sure, and they could fill them if they want -- just don't know if they will.

I stand corrected on that JW listing and comment I made. Marking it for a future 50% off sale - I still haven't opened the DVD set I got from B&N a couple of Christmases ago :-)...this double dipping has to stop

I foresee headaches dealing with their customer service over this item. I ordered it last week but alongside a bunch of distant pre-orders, so I didn't expect to see it soon. I also paid with Paypal. I've heard dealing with their customer service is a joke.

Okay, just to give credit where it's due, they cancelled my order. I'm sure everyone was on pins and needles waiting to hear what happened. :)

What about the triple and quadruple dipping? ;)
Some of us have bought the same movies on VHS, then DVD, then the SE DVD upgrade, then the HD-DVD, then the BD, and some maybe even a SE BD. GAH!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm even worse when it comes to music:
LP
European Import LP
Japan Import LP
USA CD
USA CD Remaster
USA CD Remaster #2
Japan CD
CD Deluxe Edition
96/24 Hi rez flac or SACD

There are several albums I'm pushing 10 purchases of (I usually only keep 1 version; 2 at most)

Worst I've done with Vid would be 1 each on VHS->DVD->Blu

I can do a bit worse with video on a few items: Beta > VHS > DVD > Blu Ray.

Actually I've bought Casablanca at least 4 times: in 2 DVD box sets, as a standalone blu, & in the 2 blu pack with African Queen. & I still have both DVD versions (the Casablanca box & one of the Bogart boxes) & the 2 blu set.

Yesterday (Thursday) morning I called FoxConnect and was informed that the movies were not available and I wouldn't be getting them. Fourteen hours later I received an email shipping confirmation. Their communication between office and warehouse is lacking.
I hope all that ordered and were told the order were cancelled receive the items.

Maybe this was answered elsewhere, but is it common practice with FoxConnect to hold off on shipping an entire order when a preorder is part of it? I placed an order on 3/20 and I'm not in a big hurry for it (still processing). Part of the order included the Guys Being Guys 3 pack which is scheduled to be released May 6. Another title I ordered is supposed to have movie money for Rio 2 so I would hope the whole order isn't held until May.

Apparently this started in the last month. They are selling these BDs at rock-bottom prices and I imagine they figured out freely shipping multiple items was expensive. They now hold an entire order until the pre-orders are released.

Bummer. Hope the film is still in theaters by the time I receive the one with movie cash. If I had considered this ahead of time, I would have broken the order up. Oh well.

In my case, I actually wanted the order cancelled. I wasn't too happy with the lack of information of which items were included with the code, but once I figured out that 3/4 of the items I wanted were not included, they didn't hold me to the order I mistakenly placed.

So, they're still on my good list.

You forgot laserdisc in there for some fools like me! I was too slow to get rid of my LDs or HD-DVDs when they were worth a little, and it seems a shame to toss them in the trash or give them away. I lump getting rid of them in with my "clean up the garage" project that never happens because either I'm too busy with work and other stuff or it's too hot or cold in the garage. So it was LD -> DVD -> HD-DVD -> BD for me. Fortunately I didn't buy too many VHS or HD-DVDs, but I cringe when I think how much I was paying on LDs or that when I started DVD I used to think $15 was a good deal. Now $5 for a DVD seems too expensive and I can barely pull the trigger for a $5 catalog BD. I've tried to avoid too many multi-dips, though I'm sure I have some movies on each format.
