I Am Cuba Ultimate Edition $12.99 + Shipping @ ShopPBS.org

I Am Cuba Ultimate Edition @ ShopPBS.org

Listed at $17.98, there is a 15% discount on all "arts" titles and a stackable 15% coupon with the code "Welcome15" during checkout. Comes out to $12.99 for a DVD listed at or around $35-40 everywhere else. Shipping is $5, still a great deal!

An excellent film and beautiful packaging. Recommended, and certainly at that price.

Does anyone know if this version has the standard retail packaging or generic PBS packaging?

PBS isn't recognizing the promo code. Where did it come from, and is it in the proper case, as the codes are case-sensitive?
Thanks.

I dont know about the packaging but you can get 6percent cash back through fatwallet.com and some of the other cash back sites. I got the promo code to work without quote marks.

Well, I think the promo code only works if you are a first time buyer at ShopPBS because I tried to use it on my next purchase and it didn't work.

Disregard my last post. I got the code to work. Used all small-case letters.
Thanks.

I couldn't resist at that price. Unfortunately it's back ordered now. My e-mail receipt said it should ship in 2-4 weeks.

I ordered one 3 or 4 hours ago and it went through not being on back order. I think this title is OOP, but I'm not positive on that. Hopefully they get more in because it is a great deal.

Well, my receipt says:

You can expect to receive your item(s) between 06/08/09 and 06/16/09.
So, that's good, right?

I honestly don't care about the packaging. I would prefer the case to be the cigar box but if not the content is well worth 12 bucks.

How did you get the free shipping on top of the coupon? I could only get one or the other to work.

The free shipping was automatic at checkout. I don't know how much you have to spend to qualify, but at checkout I was offered 4 shipping options, including media mail which was free.

Free shipping was only on orders of more than $60. I got a shipping e-mail yesterday, so we'll see what the packaging it, I'm somewhat confident that it will be the regular packaging since the retail price was correct.

Weird, I thought I had ordered this the night the deal was posted, but I got no confirmation, and have no order history. Guess I screwed up somehow. At this point, I'll wait until someone receives theirs, and we get a definite on the packaging - so please do post that info once it it known, thanks!

Received mine today and it is the proper fancy packaging.

Edit: On a lamer note, all three discs inside the package were loose from their hubs causing light scratches on the two bonus discs. Nothing that will affect play, and nothing that can't be cleaned, but irritating all the same. You'd think they'd have a nice digipak instead of three slimpaks.

Gotta love the USPS and their Media Mail. Apparently they just drive your stuff around the nation before actually delivering it to you.

Mine was shipped on the 24th. It is now the 1st of June and it is still 200 miles from me. Amazing!

Your item was processed through and left our MEMPHIS, TN 38136 facility on June 29, 2009. The item is currently in transit to the destination. Information, if available, is updated periodically throughout the day. Please check again later.





Enter Label/Receipt Number.

That stinks. When mine was shipping it had a lot of bogus information on the website. It took like a week to get from the shipping info received to actual delivery for me. I hate USPS... really anything government run.
