Re: $5.99 HD DVD titles

Yeah, the list is different now, showing 145 titles. Some of the ones Amazon was handling that were OOS are now back at a cheaper price, but once you add in the shipping they come out to a dollar or two more. Shipping from closeoutmovies seems to be $3 a title regardless of quantity.

Shipping kills the deal.

Was going to check out, until I realized that the shipping cost for the 17 discs I wanted was over $50!

Yes, that does work. Unfortunately, only some of them have the alternate buying options (aka, where there's a link that lists "Used & New" versions).

They added some new titles to the list since earlier this morning and those titles don't have the option and neither do titles that have sold out. It worked out fine for me when I ordered 5 discs earlier and two came up as $5 and I was able to find the $6 ones that counted toward free shipping. I'm sure as the day goes on, less and less will have the option. (and aka, I'm only trying to help out and triy to give folks a shot at free shipping.)

Wow. So they lowered many of titles from $6 to $5, but took away free shipping... Weird.

When I ordered mine around 5am EST they were all still $6 and I got free shipping on everything. Guess it pays to have insomnia sometimes.

Re: $5.99 HD DVD titles

Wow, I'm surprised that deal didn't last longer! I wonder who decided to take away the free shipping, Amazon or closeoutmovies on a Saturday night?

Re: $5.99 HD DVD titles

It's not so much they changed the prices (many of the $5.99 version are still there. . .for now) but they added an additional $4.99 selection that the main page goes to that doesn't count toward the $25 free shipping total. When an item comes up with this message at the top of the screen: "This item is not eligible for Amazon Prime when purchased from closeoutmovies. See more buying choices," click on "see more buying or options" and look to see if there if closeoutmovies has one listed with "fulfillment by amazon" and that will count. Keep in mind that sometimes other companies will have the "fulfillment by amazon" attached to their listing but the item may be a much higher price. It is crazy but that's amazon. I would imagine that as the day goes along the ones that count for free shipping will vanish, but who knows.

On some of them - not all. Oh well. The two I want may be at Ralphs today when I go food shopping...so I'll hold off ordering.

Re: $5.99 HD DVD titles

Same thing here, $15 shipping for 5 discs. No thanks. Nothing I need that badly. The only HD titles I really wanted to grab were Twister and Music and Lyrics and those are the 2 I can never find. I'll probably just end up with the Blu's at some point.

Re: $5.99 HD DVD titles

A real shame I missed out when these were shipping for me. I would have purchased over 10 of 'em.

I swear I'm not trying to threadcrap. Just thinking outloud I guess.

EDIT: Also, why does Shaun of the Dead never drop in price? iNetVideo always had it at $10+, and it's $12.99 here. That's the one title on HD-DVD I still really want.
Fry's has Shaun of the Dead for $5.00 for the next few days. Great movie and great HD DVD!

Re: $5.99 HD DVD titles

You do not get refunded if the price changes anymore. If they have not shipped, cancel the whole order.

Giz; thanks for the help. Let me rephrase that. I'd like to find both of those in the bargain bin. My daughter loves M&L and I think Twister is a real guilty pleasure. Sounds great on my sound system. But if I have pay more than $10 for the HD, I'll just wait and pay a few extra for the BD. I' don't mind adding to my HD collection but with the format being dead, I won't pay the same for the HD as the BD.

Do not cancel your order! You did well. The only way to get Free Shipping is to buy titles at $5.99 via Amazon Prime.

As some of us have found out, the same titles listed for less (such at $4.99) do not qualify for Amazon Prime and its Free Shipping. Those have a shipping charge of about $2.99 per disc, so end up costing more than the $5.99/free shipping ones.

You wont find Twister cheap, Warner produced only a small amount (couple thousand tops). M&L shouldn't be too tough to find in the future cheap.

Re: $5.99 HD DVD titles

It looks like both 'Animal House' and 'Fast Times...' are available for $5.97, including shipping.

I was able to order 'Fast Times' earlier this AM with Prime.

I ended up at 6 (I think) Kroger stores looking for both those movies over the past couple of days. I ended up with 12 other titles (incl. 'Elizabeth The Golden Age' -- I ordered 'Elizabeth' along with 'Fast Times.')

I wonder if my 10 yr old DVD copy of 'Animal House' -- bought with a gift card received for Xmas 98 -- still plays.

So thanks for the heads up!

You don't need Amazon Prime to get free ship, as long as your order is over $25 on the $5.99 titles.

1) There are no price guarantees

2) You could opt to cancel your order and re-order, but then you'd pay shipping charges.

3) Just sit back and feel lucky you got these for $5.99 with free shipping.
