(DEAD) Watch email for 50% off Foxstore coupon

Email says 1 time use, expires 5/9. Needs you to verify your email to get the code.

-edited by pilot-

CODE: BLOWOUT (can only be used ONCE!)

Can only get up to $500 off

If you qualify, don't think twice. It IS a great deal.

http://www.foxstore.com/promotions/sale/?ptvars=|O=782|C=3152814|R=6004|B=4886|L=8241|

You can use the link above to check if you qualify. Most people who have had success with the code, got the email with the promo. SOME, have had luck without have got the email. It was a private sale, and not everyone will be able to get stuff at the sale price! Be aware that even if you think you will get stuff at 50% off, you won't know for sure unless you check your email against the validation page and get a "Congratulations" message (actually I think they redirect you to another page or something), or if you check out and at the final page, it doesn't tell you that you are excluded from the sale. If you aren't sure, checkout. Even if you have to enter your credit card information, it won't charge you until you click okay at the last page which will tell you if you qualify or not.

Exclusions for 50% off sale.

*NOTE: Unfortunately, the following DVDs are SPECIFICALLY EXCLUDED from this promotion STAR WARS TRILOGY, STAR WARS EPISODE I: THE PHANTOM MENACE, STAR WARS EPISODE II: ATTACK OF THE CLONES, STAR WARS CLONE WARS, STAR WARS ANIMATED ADVENTURES, CastAway, Willow and The Simpsons Season 1, The Simpsons Season 2, The Simpsons Season 3, The Simpsons Season 4, The Simpsons Season 5.

Expires 5/9/05 Midnight

--

Some pre-orders are available. If you elect to have everything shipped together, you won't be charged until the last item is out. Shipping is $3.95 for most people to anywhere in the USA (lower 48 states). Sales tax charged for residents of CA and AL.

--

You can get the free item if your total is over $200 BEFORE the discount, so if you have $205 in your cart, enter the coupon for 50% off, you'll get the free item by buying $105 worth of stuff!.

If you buy enough stuff, $199 worth, you qualify for a free dvd (or set). Once you get the message, "Get a FREE movie up to $75 in value right now," simply search for the item. When the search reveals the item you want click on the picture, DO NOT ADD IT TO THE CART. Once the detailed info page comes up you'll see a little gift icon next to the picture on the top and some message like, "add free gift to cart." Click on that package. This adds the item to your cart for FREE!! Great deal, huh?!?!

*Offer cannot be redeemed towards Star Wars Trilogy, Star Wars Ep I: The Phantom Menace, Star Wars Ep II: Attack of the Clones, Willow, Bratz, Cast Away, and Passion of the Christ DVDs and VHS tapes.

If anyone doesn't need their code I would be thankful. I need to pick up the Alien Quadrilogy for a gift. I would also be willing to give you the funds to pick it up for me and ship it to me as well.
Thanks,

Yeah, I really liked Wonderfalls, for $16 it's well worth it, imo, there are 13 episodes, and some fairly amusing extras(things like the leads and producers singing the theme song on one of the commentaries). It was described as being "Touched by an Angel" on acid, so it's probably not to everyone's tastes, but the writing is at a very high level, the little creature animations are great, and Caroline Dhavernas is really terrific.

By the way, also check out the Make a Bundle promotion, it looks like you can get another 10% off of multiple box set purchases. They have some preconstructed ones, but you can put your own together and still get the discount.

I'm having the same problem. I hope it starts working soon. I'm pretty good on fox dvds, but I still need 1 season of Angel & 2 seasons of Buffy to complete my collection.

You should get the code right away...it shows up on the validation screen after you enter and submit your email address and then gives you a link to the site.

BTW, I'll repeat what I noted a few posts above, if you are ordering multiple box sets, try the Make a Bundle promotion, it gives you an additional 10% discount. I haven't checked out, so I don't know whether you can combine this with the 50% off, but it's worth a try. If someone does it, post if it works.

You can not combine the two offers, you can combine with the free DVD offer only.

Didn't get one, but was wondering if anyone who did get one, if they'd be interested in purchasing a few things for me and I'd pay them immediately with non-CC Paypal funds. Just asking since I don't expect to get one, but there are a few things I'd love to get here.

I would try clearing the cookies and trying again. Haha that's my generic solution for everything. Also maybe make sure that you are entering the exact email address, that could be the problem.

Doesn't look like there are a lot of good preorders, they do have the Kinsey 2 disc for $12.50. If I remember the annoying thing about the last 50% coupon, is that they wouldn't ship anything until all the preorders hit.

Code BLOWOUT is one I got on both email accounts. Put $199 worth stuff in cart, add free DVD you want, then enter code to get discount. It worked for me.

That's probably because every DVD dork on the 'net is checking the site out. I'm gonna give the BLOWOUT thing a try if I can ever get to the site.
