I know this issue comes up every time with these GoHastings.com sales. It bears repeating that with any deal you factor in shipping costs as well in determining whether you're getting a deal or not. Many of the DVDs I've ordered in the past have probably cost less than $3 each including shipping. Also, since they ship DVDs individually (from different locations, I presume), they end up spending more to ship them to you than what they actually charge.

Added 2 Anime titles and the code didn't apply. Fail.

Everything I wanted didn't work, because it was a boxset, a TV show or a blu-ray.

That should be a nice mail bomb. At least I will get plenty of bubble mailers to reuse.

I just know they are going to screw up some of the limited editions I ordered.

Not too bad. They were titles I'd been wanting and was too lazy to pick up any other time. Around $3/title after shipping. Not bad at all. Though for some reason the 30% off didn't apply to the Addams Family/Values set. Weird. Must be counted as a "box set" or something.

You have to share your list! Always fun to see if anyone has a worst taste in movies then I do. I'm still trying to think up old horror titles I might be missing...

I have already listed it on page 1 of the 2010 spending thread. And yes, I probably have terrible taste.

I'm curious to see what kind of condition you get the criterions in. Be sure and share! As for Armageddon, I thought you didn't want to miss a thing?
