Just got my order yesterday. They squished all three items into one tiny box. My DVD set got a little squished (Leading Ladies collection) but fine other than that.

Got the 3/27 order today. Everything is fine. Weird that the BF order was so messed up (80% of the discs were badly scratched & not floaters), & the 2 orders I placed after that were fine.

Got my 4 movie order yesterday and instead of cramming like the last two orders, came in a pretty big box with those air cushioners.

Got my ROCKY HEAVYWEIGHT collection last night. I think they used a whole roll of tape on my box, but at least it arrived undamaged. :)

My free copy of The Diary of Anne Frank with the Book Thief came badly damaged. It looks like someone decided to take a razor blade to its cover.

I will never take the Foxconnect sales where everything is 50% off for granted again.

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.

I e-mailed them on 4/2, received a reply earlier this evening. Actually 2 replies, which makes it confusing.

The first:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your email and recent Fox Connect purchase! We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience but Guys Being Guys Party 3-Pack is a pre-ordered item. Your entire order will ship once all items are available. You will receive a shipping confirmation email, with a tracking number enclosed, once available. If you have any difficulties tracking your package and/or have additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us back and we will be more than happy to assist you further.



The second, a half hour later:

Thank you for contacting us. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and we are currently looking into this issue. We have recorded your contact information and will promptly contact you when we have additional information.


I'm tempted to call and cancel the preorder item. Wonder how difficult that might be? These 50% sales are coming around so frequently, I could always pick it up again down the road.

Thanks, hariseldon. That's probably sound advice.

Way back during Black Friday I preordered Archer, the rest of my order shipped separately.

A friend placed an order during this sale. Fox sent it to the wrong town. Finally got his reshipment today. Fox included a free copy of the ComicCon version of THE FLY(1958).
