Family Video Vinegar Syndrome Sale - Ends 11/02/17

Pretty sure this doesn't compare with VS's own "Half Way" and Black Friday sales, but maybe there's some bargains here among the new releases and pre-orders? Free shipping over $25.

Apparently the code WELCOME17091 gets you an additional 10% off?

The nice thing is that the sale runs all month. I hate stores moving to flash sales that only last 24-48 hours.

There's something ironic about "Family" Video featuring soft core porn horror!

Probably just a listing error.

Found it over at the BD.com Forums. Probably one-time use.

Re: Family Video Vinegar Syndrome Sale - Ends 11/02/17

Pretty nice sale. The 2 major VS sales are roughly 50%, so you can do the math. I was able to get the code to work last week, but I'm assuming it is no longer working. The October package is roughly 40% off, and these prices easily beat the package deal on the VS website. I'm not sure if the prices have gone up, from last week, but when I place the FV order this statement was not correct by a long shot:

'Pretty sure this doesn't compare with VS's own "Half Way" and Black Friday sales'

Obviously, I wasn't aware of the code when I made the original post so this sale is indeed pretty nice, but if we're comparing the sheer number of titles available at a discount, then the statement still kinda stands.

So you're issue is about titles not on sale?

The grocery store is advertising in their weekly ad, peaches for 50 cents per pound. You go in and complain that the apples aren't on sale, or even better, every item in the produce section should be on sale. This makes complete sense.

Re: Family Video Vinegar Syndrome Sale - Ends 11/02/17

Wow. My opening post simply stated that this sale doesn't compare with the usual VS sales. Some prices are better, others are about the same, and there's lesser selection. It wasn't an "issue", and I saw no harm in stating it, but I couldn't help but clarify myself in light of "not correct by a long shot". Whatever. I've bought discs from Family Video during these types of sales in the past, and I even posted this one because I felt it was worth checking out, so I was hardly dissuading anyone.

I just tested the code (WELCOME17091) at the checkout screen and it worked for me. Using Firefox, if that matters.
