Thanks,

Ordered Chased by Sea Monsters, which should be 3.20. I don't like how they don't give you the discount upfront.

Are you sure about that? I saw shipping at 5.99 and decided against the deal.

My total with shipping came out to $13.20 USD, I still haven't received the updated 10$ discount email yet though.

Ok, I finally got the email with the updated total:

1 D CHASED BY SEA MONSTERS for 9.95 each
The estimated ship date for this item is OCT 17.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Item(s) Subtotal: 9.95
Discount: 9.95-
Shipping & Handling: 3.25
----------
Total: 3.25



Pretty good deal, I guess they only take 10$ off of the product itself and not shipping, so it cost an extra 5 cents. Thanks OP!

So I'm trusting you guys here...
I placed the identical order for CHASED BY SEA MONSTERS (my son loves this stuff). Absolutely nowhere during the entire ordering and checking out process does it say a $10 discount is in effect. I even got a confirmation email from PayPal saying they've been authorized to pay $13.20.

Starman9000: is this how it was with you before you eventually got your email noting that a $9.95 discount was applied?

Yep, there was no mention of it anywhere until I got the second email, and that was almost a full day later.

Just stacked it with the "$5 off $25 when you sign up for our e-mails" discount. Should work since PayPal handles the rebate. Thanks OP.

DVD-only orders ship for $3.25 plus $0.95 for each additional DVD after the first.

If you focus on the 9.95 DVDs:

1x9.95 = 9.95 - 9.95(rebate) + 3.25(s/h) = 3.25
2x9.95 = 19.90 - 10(rebate) + 4.20 = 14.10 (7.05 ea)
3x9.95 = 29.85 - 10(rebate) - 5(coupon) + 5.15 = 20.00 (6.67 ea)
4x9.95 = 39.80 - 10(rebate) - 5(coupon) + 6.10 = 30.90 (7.73 ea)

It's cheapest just to order 1. But if you want more than 1 you should try to get 3.



.... I wonder if this is a one-shot deal, or if you get the $10 off on every order?

Can we use this more than once? (nevermind, just missed that it says limit one)

Also, does anyone know if Pompeii the Last Day is the same as the BBC version? The BBC title is 50 minutes, but this one says 1 hr 40 minutes.

Still no email saying I'm paying $3.25 instead of $13.20 for CHASED BY SEA MONSTERS. I'd feel a lot better about this deal if ANYWHERE on the discovery channel site it mentioned this deal...

Here's the Google cached page from the Discovery Channel store site with the banner ad for the Paypal deal:

The BBC version also includes Colosseum: A Gladiator's Story as an extra, which also runs 50 minutes, so perhaps they're including the runtime for both?

Yeah, that's what I was wondering I guess, since the Discover listing doesn't mention Colosseum. But as the coupon is one time use I guess it doesn't matter.

Doh! It just shipped at full price - no mention of any $10 discount and no response from a two day old email from the Discovery Channel Store customer service either... Hey theMadness - that cached web page has a broken link to the conditions of this offer. Does anybody know when it expired?

Sorry, don't know when it expired, it sure wasn't up for long though. I got my DVD today, unfortunately it is one of those in a generic Discovery Channel case (which I figured it would be).

It was a cached page direct from the Discovery Channel store. The link was working when I posted it. I've seen this deal posted on several deal sites - including reports of success. I never did see an expiration date. Sorry for the trouble all.

Here are the conditions from my original post - as found them:
