I'll kick myself if DD actually comes through. I purposely avoided them because I thought they'd be the most likely to not send them out.

I got the same email. Of course, it says "There will be no charge to you unless this item ships," but I paid by PayPal, so I've already been charged. I hope it's not a hassle to get my money back.

It appears that the good ole Sarge has played a massive joke on all of us.

It should have been a temporary change that would have fallen off by now.

Maybe it should have been, but it's showing up in my account as a completed charge. Am I the only one who used Paypal that has this problem?

The only one I have left is DD and if other posters are correct, it will be cancelled since all DD orders are cancelled if they are "back ordered" for more than a month.

Nope. Used Paypal. Money was taken out of my checking account and has yet to be refunded.

Edit 10/20/14: Received an email this morning from Paypal telling me CD Universe has sent me the refund!

I actually got it in the mail today. it is packaged in 4 set holders like the first season was. In fact the first season looks like the original release. They shipped it priority mail for some reason.
I literally ordered hours before dd changed the price. I'll be watching this tomorrow.

Got shipping notification on the 31st. Can't believe this actually went through, with everybody else cancelling. Guess I can unload my S1 and Best of sets. Still not sure if this is any good, in that I've never seen an episode. 20.96 padded into an order with something else.

Got mine today also. Would have ordered a couple (or three), but decided to spread the orders around (CD Universe, Best Buy, etc.) just in case some were cancelled. Still glad I did that since it would have been a crapshoot if I had only picked one source (probably would have been BB), so I'm ecstatic to get the one copy at this price from DD.

I believe the final price came out to around $28 with shipping but I'm happy.

My (full price + coupon) set from DeepDiscount arrived earlier in the week also.

I still have the order open from Amazon.ca, but I'm getting close to just saying screw it and cancelling.
I have to make up my mind soon because this set will need to go back if I chance waiting for the Amazon order to go through. Don't know if it's really worth it though. I love the show, was satisfied with the ~$75 price for the 3 seasons I didn't have, and just got $10 back from selling a copy of the first. Really doesn't seem worth the hassle and suspense wondering if Amazon will come through or not.

My SGT. BILKO THE COMPLETE SERIES from fye.com just shipped and it's still $16.98 on there. I ordered when they had the 20% off code and got it for $12.24 after it and BSP discount.

I guess I'll place my order with them as well. Any promo codes anyone has? I've been looking but haven't found anything.

Mine shipped today too, at the same price. I'm not sure what I'm gonna get tho -- fwiw, the order slip in the package they sent me last week (it was other items in the same order) lists the unshipped item as Ardennes Fury/Ardennes Fury Item#ASUL4561BR -- even though my order info at fye.com shows Bilko. So, I'm hoping for a big package in the mail, but I won't be surprised if it's the Ardennes Blu-ray.
