A better selection finally, but the combo prices are ridiculous. Hopefully this is evidence of a B1G1 with more titles coming soon.

Wow - finally Universal titles on sale. Maybe Amazon is trying to ride the potential surge in HD DVD interest after the Super Bowl commercial? Anyway, I did my part - ordered 11 titles! Thanks OP!

Cool. I just requested a refund on the 2 combos I bought during the B1G1F sale at $27.95 each. Now they're both $19.95. Amazon should refund the difference based on past experience.

I bought some of the 32 days ago. Do you think they will still pricematch?

worth a shot, but I think you'll have great success if you call versus email, IMO

I will. I made that mistake last week when I was denied a $18 credit for the Lost Blu-Ray.

Also, check your "shipped" date... a lot of times you can get them to honor it from THAT date, not your actual ordered date, oh, and not to generalize (much) but getting a CSR with an indian accent DOES help.

I'm about 30-32 days ago as well, and I don't expect much of a problem. As to e-mail vs. calling, I've never had a problem with e-mail. I'll report back when I hear from Amazon.

I just called and got a lot of refunds...including the F ones from the B1G1F deal. Indian accent works best

Damn, I've basically switched to only buying Blu-Ray, but I've been waiting for a while for Out of Sight at a good price.

Just placed an order for

Tremors
Pride & Prejudice
Out of Sight

Not as good as a BOGO but I'll probably pick up something. Who knows how many sales we have left (though I'm format-neutral like Sessa17)

Just got my refund from Amazon. Originally paid $27.95 for 2 combos (Children of Men and Fearless). Just got $8 back on each. So $12 total for these 2 HD-DVDs. Very nice.

I don't know how much hope I hold out for a BOGO on a lot of these, but if HD DVD crashes and burns soon, I suppose these could get bargian binned some place. Still, I think I'll grab a few titles as many of these haven't been on a decent sale before.

I got my Lost credit back 3 different times, included the Gold Box sale last week. I ordered mine weeks before the release date as well.

I got a few 34-35 days ago, not gona bother asking for a refund. The thing is they shipped 3 of the 4 ordered on B1G1 sale separately and deducted 30 bucks from 20 dollar items as it is, so I got them for 10 each, because the remaining part of the order with that 4th item I cancelled.
Anyways, great sale, I think I'm gona get about 12 titles.
