Re: Tales of the Black Freighter for $5 if you order Watchmen

Now this is weird. Not only have I yet to receive an order confirmation (I don't have an account with WBshop.com so that is out the window too), but the money I paid showed up on my online banking the second I submitted the order, but now it is missing.

I wonder if they canceled my order without telling me or something...

You can't check the status of the order online? I put in two orders and I requested they cancel one. They never sent out an order confirmation. Just shipping/cancel confirmations, but the order status online should be accurate.

Did you have a pre-order for anything? If so, that was just a temp authorization you saw, and they will charge you for real when your item ships.

Re: Tales of the Black Freighter for $5 if you order Watchmen

I can't seem to stack up the coupons. Don't know what I am doing wrong. watch3 works but not 783A42XP. Tried adding 300 book, harry potter OotP and Green Lantern first flight. The latter of the 2 I know have worked for others. None of them seem to work for me. Add the bd to cart, add watch3 coupon and add the other coupon.

Am I doing something wrong or is the deal dead? Thank OP and others for the tip.

They killed that. You can no longer stack those coupons. You can stack the 25% off and B2G1F coupons, but not watch3... Perhaps you can stack 25% off and watch3. I never tried that combo...

Not to mention, the Watch3 coupon only works for Watchmen/Tales of the Black Freighter, so none of those titles are eligible for it.

Actually, they killed it worse now. 783A42xp no longer works on pre-orders at all. All 3 titles must be in-stock, based on the tests I have done...

Ah okay thanks for clarifying. That's a weird policy though; charge me the full amount, and then cancel the transaction until the items ship. Seems odd.

Yep. I already received my V For Vendetta and Watchmen: Tales Of The Black Freighter and charged my card $5.30. I imagine Watchmen: Director's Cut will ship a little before the 21st and then they'll charge the remaining $25.40.

Re: Tales of the Black Freighter for $5 if you order Watchmen

I got a charge for $5.36 on my card, so I'm assuming they've shipped TOTBF and The Complete Motion Comic.

But I haven't received an E-mail, nor does my order at WBShop say anything has been shipped. They did however add a 4th item to my order, called WB Return Policy. I think that's a good sign for shipping.

Edit: Yeah, that's what the charge was for. Got the shipping E-mail today, and I should have them in a week.

Re: Tales of the Black Freighter for $5 if you order Watchmen

I was wondering why a thread with such a minor deal kept getting bumped and was 3 pages long. Finally came in to read it and wish one of you had asked for a title change.

Don't feel too bad. I posted the original deal about the $5 add-on but forget to place my order so I didn't get that or a free Blu-ray. Oh well.

I don't suppose anyone has had their actual Watchmen order ship yet?
