I'm getting a sale not active message instead of invalid user/password when trying to login now so that seems like a step in the right direction. Wish list also working now.

From their FB page: credit card processing should be reactivated by Wednesday and we will go live on Thursday.

They have updated the sale period to this year's dates. It says it starts Thursday December 6 at 12 Noon Pacific Time (3 PM in the East), Ends Tuesday December 17th at 11:59 PM Pacific Time. As always stock is limited and once something is sold out it is gone .

Has anyone noticed if they're adding anything? It's been at least 2-3 days since I last checked.

From my 3rd glance, both the selection & pricing were better last year.

For those who are progressive rock or Electric Jazz fans, the Jeff Beck blu is very good, & a bargain at $5.

Re: EAA Charity Sale - Deals on Shout factory, Warner, Criterion, others

I've still got 10 on my wish list for $35 with ship. I'll likely bite if all goes well.

One thing I did notice is all the "new" titles are also the pricey ones. None of the "new titles" went in my wish list due to price.

Re: EAA Charity Sale - Deals on Shout factory, Warner, Criterion, others

Why don't we play it a little differently this year and promise not to flood the forum with 'its been n days since I ordered, has anyone's order shipped ?' posts. Starting next week, based on prior year experiences, it will otherwise be a standard order issue of such posts, assuming ordering will open up tomorrow - just a suggestion

They do seem to average a month or so to deliver.

Yeah, last year I placed an order on 11/26, it shipped 12/15, and arrived about a week after that via UPS.

I somehow managed to get thru checkout and after I submitted my payment info, it took me back to the log in screen. Not sure if my order went thru but now the site seems totally down to me.

Re: EAA Charity Sale - Deals on Shout factory, Warner, Criterion, others

A few people have managed to get in with sheer persistence.

Sounds like Vampire Diaries and Victoria S1 are gone -- not shocking.

Gone:
Slither
Clapton
Sgt Peppers
Neighbor 2
Buffy

Same thing happened to me. After I was sent back to login screen, I checked cart and my stuff is still there. I didn't get an email confirming order so i don't know if order went through.

What a fucking waste of time. Did everyone get Charity2018 to work? Am I the only one?

I'm bummed I missed out on Dexter. Would've liked to upgrade my DVDs.

A few people have gone through the whole process, checkout, and gotten email receipt.

Some still can't seem to get into the system at all.

I finally got in and have 2 thing in my cart I think, but I can't get back to my saved wishlist which would make things infinitely easier. I was there once very early, but once I got booted I haven't been able to get back at all and going through all the screens seems improbably at this points

Best think to do is go away for 24 hrs, let all the good stuff get taken and go back and see if you can make an order with the leftovers. Most of the stuff I had in the wishlist wasn't the high profile items anyway.

Holy crap I got it to work. Sorry for being cranky, hariseldon. Missed out on the Buffy set, but I had a backup.

Re: EAA Charity Sale - Deals on Shout factory, Warner, Criterion, others

I've had enough of this headache. I always like to support charity, but the only title I really wanted was the Bill & Ted set. I threw in the Ash vs. Evil Dead set for $20 (the price point I was waiting for, but not a smoking deal) and three cheap Disney titles to offset the high shipping charge.

After the site got hammered, I thought it would be safer just to go for Bill & Ted and skip the rest. I didn't want to be stuck paying $10.80 S&H on the other four titles if their inventory system screwed up and Bill & Ted ended up getting cancelled. Even with full shipping charges, $15.80 for the Bill & Ted set is still the cheapest I've seen it.

After trying off and on for 75 minutes, I finally made it to the payment screen. Once I hit the submit order button, I was redirected back to the billing address screen (though no error message was displayed). I don't know if my card was charged or not, but I never got a confirmation e-mail. Considering what a mess their site has been since the sale went "live", I'm too wary to try it again. Good luck, folks.

Not sure how long ago you tried to checkout but Bill & Ted is sold out now. I finally got a quick glimpse of my cart (enough to see that and Slither sold out) then got booted again. I've been trying since 2pm when the sale went live and only have gotten a quick glimpse of my cart that one time. So frustrating.

Re: EAA Charity Sale - Deals on Shout factory, Warner, Criterion, others

^ It was still in my cart at 4:15 EST, but perhaps it was already sold out by then and that's why I was booted back. What a nerve-wracking way to waste an hour plus.

Re: EAA Charity Sale - Deals on Shout factory, Warner, Criterion, others

My cart is loaded with everything I want (except Dexter), but I just can't get to checkout.

Edit: Clicked on submit order and got taken back to the Company login screen. Did it work?

Re: EAA Charity Sale - Deals on Shout factory, Warner, Criterion, others

They must have a WEAK back end. I can't believe they're getting that many hits; probably really bad infrastructure. I can't even get into my wish list to move it to the cart. It's just hanging.......
