Mill Creek Direct: FINALSALE

I'm not sure if Mill Creek themselves are closing shop (I don't think so but I could be wrong), but it appears their direct sale warehouse is. As a result they are having a ridiculous sale...I was able to get 5 blu's for $20.96, UPS shipping included. At that price, its silly not to find a few to like.

Site www.millcreekdirect.com
Coupon Code = FINALSALE (one word, not two like the site says)
Shipping = Free if your order is $50 or more pre-coupon code!

It should work on all titles blu or dvd. Note, I could not get the site to process my order until I used Firefox, IE was a bust. Be sure to select your shipping method prior to processing order. Here is my order as an example:

The Big Picture - Blu-ray 63239 1 $11.23

No Good Deed - Blu-ray 63236 1 $11.23

Frankenstein - The Complete Mini-Series Event - Blu-ray 63245 1 $11.23

The 10th Kingdom - 15th Anniversary Special Edition - Blu-ray 63242 1 $18.73

My Science Project - Blu-ray 63244 1 $7.48

Subtotal $59.90
Shipping & Handling $0.00
Discount (FINALSALE) -$38.94
Grand Total $20.96

Re: Mill Creek Direct: FINALSALE

I picked up:

Lonesome Dove-The Original Mini-Series Event - Blu-ray $14.98
Fire Birds - $11.23
Color of Night & Playing God - Double Feature - Blu-ray $7.48
Hollywood Homicide & Hudson Hawk - BD Double Feature $7.48

Subtotal $41.17
Shipping & Handling $3.50
Discount (FINALSALE) -$26.76
Grand Total $17.91

Even with shipping, I was fine with that price.

Re: Mill Creek Direct: FINALSALE

That 70's Show complete blu-ray set would be great...but seems to be a dead link (I'm assuming maybe they've sold out?).

Not a big fan of Mill Creek, but these were some nice discounts - worked out to less than $4 a title (and many of those were multi-disc sets like Gamera, Daimajin, etc).

Re: Mill Creek Direct: FINALSALE

For those who want Blu-ray titles only (not sure if this will exclude BD+DVD)

Mill Creek Available Blu-ray Titles

Lonesome Dove is a must. As is 10th Kingdom.

Re: Mill Creek Direct: FINALSALE

Garbage website. I was placing an order. They quoted free shipping. On the next page, they raised shipping to $3.50. I hit back on my browser to check free shipping a 2nd time, & it cleared the cart. GRRRRRRRRRR. Guess i didn't really need this sale.

Re: Mill Creek Direct: FINALSALE

It took me a few tries to figure out the free shipping option...thankfully it didn't clear my cart (of course, I had several windows open and that might have helped). You need more than $50 after the discount...and you have to choose UPS Ground to trigger the free shipping. --Peter

On mine it stated $50 before the discount; & I did select UPS. They changed me top media mail @ $3.50

There was nothing i had to have; interest was really due to the low prices. MC tends to have very poor prints; so I'll live!

Re: Mill Creek Direct: FINALSALE

Almost all of those Mill Creek Blu-ray double features can be found at the local Dollarama in Canada for $3 each in Canadian dollars which is about $2.15 in US dollars.

or $2.99 - $3.99 at a Frys store in the US these days. Some are also available as a 4 pack for $9.99. Gone are the days when they were routinely $0.89 or $0.99 every other week with a promo code. Collected almost all of them

Re: Mill Creek Direct: FINALSALE

To those who did not get in, honestly you probably didn't miss much as the site is now down and points to the main Mill Creek site. I did this primarily for Frankenstein and 10th Kingdom and threw the rest in for free shipping purposes. But if it went down this easily, who knows if I will ever get anything now.

From Mill Creek's Facebook page:

Mill Creek Direct (www.MillCreekDirect.com) will cease fulfilling direct-to-consumer orders on March 1, 2016. Mill Creek Entertainment will continue to release exciting DVD and Blu-ray titles at affordable prices for movie and TV lovers to enjoy, but our e-commerce website will redirect consumers to purchase products via our retail partners' stores and sites. We appreciate your patronage and hope you continue to support Mill Creek Entertainment and our assortment of value-priced DVD and Blu-ray products.
I never bought from their site, prices were too high. I just buy from Amazon, Bi-Mart (a local store chain in WA, OR, ID), and sometimes Walmart.

Yeah, what a bunch of crap Mill Creek. But, to be expected. Their reliability is as good as their infamous transfers.

At least they are consistent.

It was $39.37, but sold out pretty quickly. Now the entire site is down.

Re: Mill Creek Direct: FINALSALE

Signs point more to they realize how cheap it was selling for and took it down.

Re: Mill Creek Direct: FINALSALE

I had all kinds of things in my cart yesterday, but finally resisted. I just knew it was going to be a massive addition to an already massive unwatched pile.

There were definitely some great deals. Will be interesting to see if the site/deal comes back.

Re: Mill Creek Direct: FINALSALE

I almost pulled the trigger but free shipping wasn't working and I asked myself "SterlingBen, do you really need to upgrade My Science Project and Krull?" Those being the tentpoles of my Order I decided to pass.

I already had the only MC title that was major essential to me: The blu-ray of Legend Of Billie Jean.

Re: Mill Creek Direct: FINALSALE

The site was up for at least a few minutes early this morning. I checked it when I got up and it was apparently up - the main page loaded - but I didn't have time to mess with it then. It's now down again which is possibly a blessing as I really don't need to spend any more on media this month.

Re: Mill Creek Direct: FINALSALE

I just placed an order. It looks like the code took off about 65% of my tab...a really good sale! Thanks big time to Kedrix for the news on this.

NP, however I hope we get a shipping notice (or it shows up on my doorstep) sometime in the next week or so. Even if their direct sale warehouse wasn't going bye-bye this would be my first and last order with them lol
