That's not uncommon ordering online. CC's are the best in case there is a charge that drops later.

Yeah. I would never, ever, EVER use a debit card for online purchases.




























EVER!

Unfortunately, those double pre auths are common. I have one from Pono at the moment. I have no idea why they feel a need to get 2 pre auths.

Some of us only have debit cards.

That has never happened to me before. But I never put much into this checking account. It's for my discretionary spending. I just try to refrain from using credit at all costs now after I was laid off a few years ago...I am debt averse. If I don't have the cash now, I don't need it...whatever "it" may be.

I don't like debt either which is why I pay off my credit cards each month. Plus I get 3 to 5% back depending on the card. And it is much safer using a credit card than a debit card.

Yeah, I understand how credit cards work... But had you experienced what I went through you would understand. This keeps me disciplined.

Exactly. Unless somebody is will power challenged, it's better to pay with CC's and pay off the full balance so one can get the perks. We never charge more than we can pay off each month and we basically pay for everything with a CC. Even our utility bills and groceries.

Eight Men Out

Hollywood Shuffle
Meanwhile
I received an immediate shipping notice on everything except Hollywood Shuffle. It was cancelled after a few days. Then I noticed it back in stock after another few days. I called and was able to get an order placed just for that title at the sale price. Kind of a PITA, but at least all four are en route.

Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

Ended up sitting this one out. Three titles I wanted, but couldn't find a fourth. Almost got Breeders for the fourth; nice cover but the movie's a total POS and just couldn't pull the trigger.

Maybe next time...

Well, all good things must come to an end. I hope they bring on some terrific titles before the next sale.

Re: OLIVE Films BOGO Sale at Deep Discount

I ended up buying two more BD's just as the sale was winding down, padded with another BD for free shipping. Aside from a handful of potential blind buys, I am largely back at square one with Olive, and very pleased. Now all we need is a similar sale on Kino products.

All I know is I watched Roller Boogie last night and it is an amazing piece of cheese. I loved it!

Now where is Skatetown U.S.A.???

Deep Discount Olive Films Halloween BOGO

Just noticed this on their site. Not sure how long it's been up, but the pricing on the Blu-Rays rivals -- and sometimes beats -- the big Olive dump earlier this year.

All titles . . .

or just the Blus

Re: Deep Discount Olive Films Halloween BOGO

I really liked Thinner, but really, $19.99? What kind of extra bonus stuff is getting added to this disc?

Olive typically has no extra features on their discs at all. Wait, most have chapter selections.

Wow...$19.99 for Thinner when the DVD has been probably $4.99. This is heartbreaking...

Re: Deep Discount Olive Films Halloween BOGO

Olive Films has begun reissuing movies in signature editions, loaded with special features.

The first titles in this new line were Johnny Guitar and High Noon.

BOGO is the only reason why.
