These frequent sales are going to burn out their customer base. Split up pre-orders into their own order, if possible. They won't ship current stock in an order if there are pre-orders in it.

Re: Another foxconnect.com 50% Off Sale for 3/27

My guess: I sell both cd's & dvd's & have for a full time living since 1998. As much as you hear about cd's dying, my movies sales have dropped by 75% more than my cd sales.

I think streaming is killing physical media for all but collectors like us & old people (like me).

As my last order, went more than ok, I'll likely grab something. Off to figure out if the preorders are included..........

I browsed for about 10 minutes, & then the site totally froze. To find box sets, you pretty much have to search by price. The "pre-orders" are almost entirely older stuff they've sold out of. Assuming the site unfreezes (LOL), I suspect I'll find enough for the free ship.

Re: Another foxconnect.com 50% Off Sale for 3/27

Found a few things I wanted but now have to call customer service when they open. My total was around $58 but I missed the code entry screen. Tried to go back to the previous steps but it wouldn't let me. The only active button was the place order button. I thought maybe there would be one more screen asking if I had any codes or coupons so I clicked it.

So, my order got placed at full price. Argh. There's a reorder option on your account screen...not really sure how often people need to do that but I clicked it and the code option was there on the first screen so I entered it just to see if it would work and it accepted it but it only took $9.99 off the $58 total of four different items. Is it just 50% off 1 item? The banner on the site just says 50% off today only. Not 50% off of what.

FOX really needs to be more clear about exactly what is on sale.

Unless they just started doing this, I've ordered pre orders in the past and they never held my order until they were in stock. But they do charge you upfront for the entire order.

Also, the preorder for the new Robocop box set it up. It includes the new transfer of the first film. $13 after discount.

It doesn't apply to every single title (despite what the promo says)...I was also going to get The Wolverine 3D extended cut, but that one's not eligible, it seems.

I robot 3d preorder is $9 with movie cash... I paid $14 without movie cash last week. Damn Fox.

Still waiting for Wolverine 3D to work with a 50% off sale.

12 Years a Slave is $12.99 with discount. The Avatar 3-disc set is only $10.99. And there's some good pre-orders to choose from like the Fargo remastered edition. Also, Fox is re-releasing all X-men movies with movie cash on May 6. Each are new BD/DVD combo packs with UV digital copy. They're $7.99 each after the discount.

Re: Another foxconnect.com 50% Off Sale for 3/27

Anyone know anything about this version of The Fly from their site? Description says 'blu-ray' and it gives the same content description as this blu-ray of the 1950's version, but it also says "1986" making me think it's really the Cronenburg remake...and I'm not convinced it's really a blu-ray either. Furthermore I can't find this white-jacketed version on Amazon/Google/Google Shopping/Google images. So which film is it? And is it a DVD or blu-ray?

Thanks in advance.

Is this Predator / Predator 2 / Predators Triple Feature...

http://www.foxconnect.com/predator-p...ure-40480.html

...the same thing as the upcoming Predator Trilogy?

http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Predat...Blu-ray/99728/

Both have the same release date and the same list price.

I tried ordering:

Mary Tyler Moore - Season 5
The Cleveland Show - Season 2
History of the World Part 1 blu-ray
French Kiss blu-ray

The only one it applied to was French Kiss. Put in a cancel "request". I might end up buying them all at regular price which will piss me off enough to never use their site again.

Which reminds me that the "Use promo code thrifty for 50%" on their home page wasn't an active link and they did not make it easy to figure out just what the sale was.

It didn't say 50% off one item, your entire order, which items...not very clear at all.

A link to the select titles that were actually included would have been much better IMO. No TV sets, no Lucas stuff, no Dreamworks, no pre-orders...kind of a pain.

There are sets. Search by price & you'll see them.

Their website is very poorly designed.

I know they exist but as far as I can tell they are not on sale. I tried Star Wars, The Americans and Modern Family S4. No dice.

Ordered Hitchcock's Spellbound and Notorious, plus preordered The Secret Life of Walter Mitty for $13.

Might grab a few more later tonight.

There website is AWFUL. The only way i could pay with Pay Pal was to use IE. It would error out with both Opera & Firefox. I ran into this last time also, at least this time they billed me the correct amount.

Bought all dvd's:
Journey to The Center of The Earth
Pinky
Lost World SE
"Classic Quad Set 2" (4 50's films)
$20.98
