Sucks that they require creating an account. I was just going to Pay Pal them, but backed out.

I ordered one. I hope I'm wrong, but I bet we all just get a crap DVD. I'll post what I get.

I ordered something from them before (some kind of small duster for small electronics). Site seemed sketchy so I used a rarely used credit card. Within a month or so, my card info was stolen. Did this site handle my CC information insecurely? I can't say for 100% but I'd probably wager yes because my only other charges were the burger place and pizza place around the corner. Could my info have been jeopardized at those restaurants too? Obviously, but I'm going to say unlikely since hundreds if not thousands of other people used those restaurants too and there have been no mass-notices of "Hey your info got stolen sorry."

Will it happen to you? Probably not, but I'd just keep a close eye on your CC bill.

This site gets horrible reviews on viewpoint.com. The word scam comes up a lot, although some people do get their items. Still, the customer service sucks and a lot of people DON'T get what they ordered. Not worth the risk for me.

I pass. Even if this is a legit site the "dvd or dvd set" is probably some unpopular overstock title.

This might be where all those Big Lots JOEY sets ended up!!

I'll chime in to say that I've ordered a couple of things recently and the items have arrived quickly--no problems there.

I'm tempted to give this a shot. I'd regret not doing so, if I heard everyone else got something cool. Though the odds seem stacked against receiving something I'd want--I could imagine it being something lame, perhaps the titles are fullscreen or even if it's something I like, I might already own it.

By the way, the sale page indicates you could receive up to 4 DVDs.

I'm expecting the dvd will be very similar to the Big Lots ones. I'm spent more then 3.99 on some pretty shitty movies, I'm in for one. If your worried about unauthorized CC charges, just use Paypal

Maybe
The Dark Knight Target Exclusive
or
Essential Ernest
or
Public Domain Cartoon MegaPack

Those are all I can remember, some other Mill Creek titles as well.

Actually having read the ad copy it does look like they intercepted some Big Lots or Ross shipments.

Well the site is defiantly not a scam, I have ordered 5 or 6 things from them over the years and had them replace one that got damaged in shipping.

I thought about ordering this, but am afraid that they would give me the Ernest Collection or the Cartoon Collection which I sadly already own.

Yup, it was too much for me. Especially since I only paid 99 cents for Ernest a few months ago from them
They are a reliable site though. Gotten some really good deals there.

Anyone have anything good to say about this set? I usually avoid these Mill Creek releases so I'll likely just pass it on to someone else.
