Actually live.com gives cashback on the before coupon price. So its better than the others. Plus, cashbaq and others that deal with dvdplanet have often failed to give me cashbaq. Or when I asked for an investigation they still didn't.

I'm super pissed that "School of the Holy Beast" is considered an "adult" title. They wouldn't allow me to order it because of my zip code. There is nothing pornographic about it, just some boobs and some torture, but no penetration. GRRRRR.

If anybody has an eb*tes.com account it maybe worth it to use at dvdplanet. I just noticed
they seem to be running a holiday promotion that if you make a ten dollar purchase you get, a one time, ten dollar bonus until the end of the year. They just added ten in my account. You can see the available promotion in your account.

I got several big items off my wishlist in this my second and final order:

Eclipse Series 11: Larisa Shepitko - $15.72
Missing - $20.97
Le Doulos - $20.97
Le Deuxieme Souffle - $20.97
Cowboy Bebop - Remix: Complete Collection - $22.49
TOTAL: $101.12

Funds are a bit low right now so I'm going to have to wait until the next sale to buy a lot of the movies that are high on my wishlist (J'accuse", the two most recent Eclipse sets, "The Nightmare Before Christmas".)

I just got an email from DVD Planet saying Scarecrow was shipped, after being told it wasn't available. At the discount price as well $17.39.

I have $113 credit for $95 Paypal or Amazon gift card. You give me a list of what you want to buy totalling $113 or less (tax included) and i'll place the order with your name and address. I'll take screenshots of the order process and forward you the emails.

I've been a gold trader for at least 2 years. PM if interested.

I'm about to start canceling my remaining backordered items. The discount isn't worth the wait. There's no excuse for taking more than 2 weeks to restock anything. If people are willing to sit around and wait that long for something they order, I have to question the need for the item in the first place. If you're not concerned with getting a hold of the item, why bother ordering it? If more people didn't put up with the wait, maybe things would change.

Some of us hold off on buying various things throughout the year. Having to wait just a little big longer to get things at the discount, especially this time around since it's even more of a discount than usual, isn't that big of a deal.

I've got a shit-ton of unopened DVDs & Blu-rays to watch. I don't mind waiting one bit for DVDs to ship that I get at a cheaper price than anywhere else during this sale, plus the use of store credit which I have a ton of, it's still a great sale. I've got orders I placed the 1st day of the sale that still haven't shipped. As long as they don't come damaged, the wait doesn't bother me.

Plus, I order so much during the sale, I forget what the hell I get. I actually kind of like when a stray box shows up like 3 weeks from now & I'm like "holy shit I totally forgot I ordered these!"

Log into your ebat*s.com account and look at your earnings. Below your earned money it indicates the promotion is available. It was in my mother's account too.

Is that legal? And really, who cares if it's pornographic (not the point). Who is regulating that move; city, state? I really had no idea censorship to that degree was going on ...

This is why I hesitate to shop at DVDPlanet...

Placed my order for The Last Emperor Blu Ray on 11/7. Paid via credit card through PayPal. DVDPlanet never shipped my order so I check and it shows 'processing'. I email DVDPlanet and get this response, 'we don't have this in stock, don't know when/if we will get this in stock, don't worry as we don't charge your credit card until we ship anyway'. Call them on the phone and tell them they do indeed charge my credit card if I pay with PayPal, they say, 'prove it by sending us your bank statement'. I ask when/if they will fulfill my order, they say they have no idea.

So, my savings were not 25% but more like paying 75% for nothing.

Luck all,
George
