The Columbia House TV-Greats Club FAQ (DVDs for under $5 incl s/h- not just TV!) PT2

March 2003 Updates:
BB7L for $.89 with free s/h (phone & online)
BG6L, BA4L, BD8L, BE1L (online) see page 7 of this thread for more details


UPDATED SUGGESTIONS:This is part 2 of the Columbia House TV Greats FAQ. While all the facts in the FAQ are not completely up to date, I'll update them as soon as I get a chance

Until then, look at the FAQ, check out the DVDs that are offered and phone in your order. Why? Because that's really the only way to know if the DVDs you're ordering are really available or not.

For any other info, check out the old thread here: http://www.dvdtalk.com/forum/showthr...hreadid=152041


------>==========<-----

UPDATES: Some (relatively) new DVD Collections available online!!!! (Good Times, Sanford and Son, Xena, Perry Mason and The A-Team) I've also added specific DVD content where available.

Additionally, there are a bunch of new DVD Collections that are NOT available online. See the table for more info.

Also, some people have reported a few new DVD Collections that so far have not been confirmed, see the GREEN & PURPLE part of the table for a list of these titles. As always, any additional information is welcome.

Thanks

 

BASICS, JOINING AND QUITTING


What is the TV Greats Club?

It's a special Columbia House Club that specializes popular Classic TV and movie series'. While most of the available products are VHS video tapes, they also have DVDs
======================
Why should I be interested in this?

Because it's a REALLY inexpensive way to get certain DVDs
======================
How inexpensive? What's the deal? How much per DVD?

It depends on what code you use. The deals have varied from 89-cents per DVD with no shipping, 89-cents per DVD plus shipping, Free DVD plus shipping. But in general each DVD costs less than $5 including the shipping costs of $3.99 per DVD
======================
What are the codes? What DVDs are available?

Below is a table of working codes, the DVD Series' and what the introductory selection that you will receive. Additionally I've included the 3-digit "Stamp Code" that refers to that particular series. Keep in mind that the TV Greats Club offers MANY MORE selections on VHS than on DVD and some of the titles are available on both VHS and DVD. So if you're ordering on the phone make sure to specify that you are interested in the DVD selection and/or reference the DVD-specific "Stamp codes" below. When ordering on the website the 3-digit codes do not appear, but you should still make sure that you have selected the DVD version of a series and not the VHS version.

An "X" in the following table means that the selection (listed vertically) is available on the website using that given Savings Code (listed horizontally)

NOTE: When entering codes on the website, be sure to eliminate any trailing "spaces". Especially if you used copy/paste to enter them.

(1) For whatever reason, the DRP code starts you off with only 2 pages of selections, but they are pages of just DVDs as opposed to the other codes which start you with many pages of VHS choices. If you click the "DVD Collections" link then you will be taken to the full 4-pages of DVD choices.

(2) These are the only choices that are included in the initial 2-pages. All of them are also included on the 4-pages of the "DVD Collections" link except for the James Bond series which is ONLY an option on the initial 2-pages and doesn't appear as a selection at all using any other codes. In addition, clicking on "Order Now" from either of the initial 2-pages takes you to an e-mail confirmation page that is a bit confusing. Instead of saying "Your introductory DVD from Title Here (DVD)" it says "Your introductory videocassette from Title Here (DVD) "

(3) These are in the "DVD Collections" section but don't say "(DVD)" next to their titles. However, when you click "Order Now", the e-mail confirmation page lists them correctly as DVDs

(4) These selections don't seem to be availble at all via the website, however they should be valid over the phone and can be referenced by their "Stamp Code".

(5) The James Bond Collection is not available anymore even though it is currently listed on the website if you use the DRP savings code.

(6) At the time of this update, these new DVDs are still showing up as being "$4.95 plus $3.99 shipping" instead of "$0.00 (or $0.89) plus $3.99 shipping" when you click "Order Now" even when using the discount codes. I don't know if they'll actually charge you or not, but phoning in your order might clear up any confusion.

(7) This title is very probably no longer available



======================
How do I get in on this deal?
Is there a phone number to call to order the TV Greats DVDs?


The website is: www.tvgreats.com

The phone numbers are:
1-800-667-0364 (recent)
1-800-538-7766 (recent)
1-800-457-0086 (old?)
1-800-262-2001 (old?)
======================
Are there any "fulfillments" like the regular CH DVD Club?

In a sense, but you're not obligated to fulfill them. The TV Greats Club will send you additional DVDs from your selected "series" every 4 to 6 weeks at a cost of $19.95 - $34.95 plus shipping. The key is to quit the club before they send you the expensive DVDs
======================
You only have to order this one DVD? You are not obligated to order ANYMORE DVDs?

Correct!! Yeah, almost too good to be true.
======================
Don't you have to return the first DVD within 30 days if you quit the club?

No, you do not.
======================
How do I cancel after I get my cheap DVDs?

After you receive your DVD and have paid for it, simply E-mail Columbia House with your account number and ask to have it cancelled. They'll confirm within 2 to 4 days usually.
======================
What's their e-mail address?

Their customer service email is:
[email protected]
======================
I ordered online but it didn't ask for my Credit Card?

They will send you a bill with the DVD.
======================

I got a defective disc, how can I get it replaced?

Send them an e-mail saying that you got a bad disc. They'll send you a new one along with a preprinted return label
======================
How many accounts can I have simultaneously? Is it "two" like the regular DVD Club?

You can sign up for more than 2 at a time. Some have reported to having 4 or 5 accounts going simultaneously
======================
I feel weird having that many going at once. Can I re-enroll after I cancel?

After you receive your DVDs you can call to cancel your account and ask to enroll in a different series with the same deal.
======================
I signed up but never got a confirmation e-mail. What's going on????

You will not receive a confirmation e-mail from the TV Greats club
======================
Is there a limit on how many times I can get the same DVD?

It's been reported that you cannot join the same club twice. Therefore you cannot get more than one copy of any DVD
======================
If I have 2 accounts with the regular CH DVD Club can I still join the TV Greats?

People have reported being a member of both clubs at the same time and never having any problems. 2 accounts open at DVD club and 2 accounts open at 89 cent club. All going to the same address, all on the same credit card.
======================
How long does it take from the point I order to when I get charged?

It usually takes about 2 weeks before it shows up on your CC.
======================
How long to receive the DVD?

It been reported to take up to 5-6 weeks, some have reported 2-weeks. Others say give it 3 or 4 weeks from the time you placed your order.
======================



SPECIFIC TITLE QUESTIONS


The Prisoner DVDs are for sale in B&M in 2-disc boxes. Will I get a 2-disc boxed set from the TVGreats Club?

"The Prisoner" and all other A & E sets come in a box with 2 DVD's.
The Prisoner has 5 of these two DVD sets, making 10 DVD's. Each DVD has a volume number.

Basically, you get Prisoner volume 1 which is what ONE of the DVDs you would get in the first set is. I heard that some outlets might sell the Prisoner DVDs separately if you were looking to get volume 2 without having to buy the set, but I don't know of any.
======================
Is "The Shining" the new remastered version?

Yes, people are getting the new remastered versions
======================
Is the "2001" the new remastered version?

Yes, people are getting the new remastered versions
======================
In the Clint Eastwood Collection, do you get the NEW version of "The Outlaw Josey Wales"? Yes.
======================
Is Animal House the Collectors Edition?

Yes.
======================
I just received my Animal House DVD, It has NO security tag or sticker.

It's been rumored that CH repackages DVDs. On the other hand, it's also been said that they do not. In either case, occasionally you will get a DVD without a security tag or sticker but the DVDs themselves appear to be completely new..

Some notable additions from the previous thread.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

I got a mailing yesterday with the 'get the first for free + $3.99 postage' offer, and the flyer included MST3K as a new offering. Any idea which will be the first title? The picture shows "Mitchell", so that may be it.

Mitchell is the first title.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Alien Nation - DF5 (two one hour episodes)

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

The Honeymooners - DQD
MST3K - K3A
Land of the Giants (?) - DSX

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

HE4L
I paid $3.99 for shipping.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Since new2thePlace asked for new codes I thought I'd post the two I received yesterday. What was interesting to me was that the Product ("stamp") codes for one offer had three extra characters.

B65L one for 89 plus shipping. (If one pays "now" with a credit card, subsequent shipments are $19.95, otherwise they are $24.95. Not useful, just thought it was interesting.)

Listed selections:
Hercules QRA/HSW
I Love Lucy 9JJ/8Z4
Rod Serling's Night Gallery R13/KKZ
Airwolf QQQ/KJ4
Best of Japanese Anime 9H2/4JM
The Avengers Z0Z/1BP
The X-files Z0R/HTH
Mystery Science Theater 3000 Q9F/KKS
The Three Stooges X81/9NW
Knight Rider Q11/HS2


BB6L two for 89 each plus shipping.

Listed selections:
Hercules HSW
I Love Lucy 8Z4
Rod Serling's Night Gallery KKZ
Airwolf KJ4
Best of Japanese Anime 4JM
The Avengers 1BP
The X-files HTH
Mystery Science Theater 3000 KKS
The Three Stooges 9NW
Knight Rider HS2

For both of these codes the web site had 5 additional pages of DVD collections but I noticed that "Night Gallery" and "MST3K" were not listed on the web.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

LAND OF THE GIANTS - Code DSX

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

AXAL
Just got a new offer from columbia house in the mail, code AXAL

Its a free dvd you just pay shipping and processing. Here are the DVD's Listed:

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Pretty Woman is the 10th ann edition

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Yes, the first DVD will come before the send additional ones. And these clubs aren't related so you can have 2 of these and two regular ones.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

According to the mailer I just received it is Star Trek:The Motion Picture Director's Cut.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Star Trek: The movie Collection K9T - Anyone know what movie this is?

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

You can pay by credit card after ordering on the web rather than pay by check. I had 3 accounts, called up, paid via credit card, and cancelled. I didn't have the gumption to do all 3 at once, so I just called 3 times. Hey, it's toll free, why not? I also got the first CH rep to adjust a bill to reflect a discount that hadn't been applied.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

The Carol Burnett Show is now on DVD from them as well. I have the first 3, and they tell me they have 2 more available so far. They have additional volumes on VHS; hopefully these will follow on DVD as well.

The DVDs contain 2 uncut hour long shows; these are not the edited versions seen in syndication.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

The A-Team is available on DVD.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

I got a circular + stamps recently, and though it doesn't have the Star Trek movie collection, it did have something interesting within the "DVD" section of the stamps:

The Simpsons (K32)

... along with Woody Woodpecker, so you know it's recent. I also know it's not the VHS (K12). Anyone want to try out the code, and find out if it's the complete Season 1?

Something else to update the chart with ... if you want Star Trek TOS with "Trouble with Tribbles" and "I, Mudd", the code is 1BY.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Question about Favorite Frat Comedies. Since Animal House is apparently gone from CH, what is anyone getting now as the introductory DVD?

Suppose I want the COMPLETE A teams series.

How do I actually do this? Can you specify which disc from the series I want to get? Someone said that one person cannot enroll in the same series club twice. So how can you get the complete series?

You can only get the first one in the series using these codes. You would have to pay full price ($20-$30) for each subsequent disc.

No Night Gallery

From a recent mailing, I ordered the Night Gallery. I just got a letter from CH saying that they do not carry it, so they canceled the order. You'd think they would stop advertising series that they don't carry. This is my second rejection on Night Gallery, also shot down twice for Woody Woodpecker. I did get MASH recently, nice disc (slim case).

I placed an order with the BB7L code (89 cents, no shipping) on the web site. The Cosby Show disc came today with a bill for 8.94 (4.95 for the disc and 3.99 shipping).

What is the most effective way to get this error fixed? I printed a copy of the terms when I placed the order and I've sent them an e-mail indicating their error and the fact that I'd be attaching the terms with my check for 89 cents. Is there anything else I need to do?

I really don't want to get into a protracted battle over this.

I've been charged the wrong price when trying to use BB7L as well. I just called them up once I receieved the DVDs and explained what I had been charged and what the terms were for the code I used. The guy didn't give me any hastle and I had the extra amount credited back to my CC a few days later.

That was the first time this happened. Incidently, I just saw an order on my CC for an BB7L order I thought had been lost since I hadn't seen anything in over a month. Of course, they charged me for shipping again, so I'll have to call this time too. I guess I can't complain too much when I'm getting the DVDs for $.89!

I called them and the CSR indicated that I'd have to attach the terms along with the check. She said she couldn't update my balance until then. I wonder if its different since I didn't supply a credit card # or was the CSR just wrong?

Lad, email [email protected] about it. They take a few days to respond, but at least you won't spend an hour on the phone. In my experience, they do the job the first time, while the phone guys took a couple of tries.

Incorrect Codes

I just called 1-800-538-7766 and was told that these codes are no longer valid:

K9T -- Star Trek The Motion Picture Series
K58 -- Sci-Fi Cinema: 2001 A Space Odyssey
18Z or 17V -- Stanley Kubrick Series: The Shining

I was able to have the CSR look up both the Sci-Fi Cinema and Stanley Kubrick Series without the codes but the Star Trek Series with the feature films appears to be discontinued.

You were right, they responded within a couple of days and the account is closed and the balance is correct. Hopefully I won't get any flack with my 89 cent check.

Is it a relatively common to be misbilled on these intro TV great offers?

I have had several accounts in this club. The only times I got misbilled were when I called in an order to get a .89 and no shipping deal. You can have the CSR read back to you that it is .89 with no shipping charges, your introductory selection will come to a grand total of .89, etc. one hundred times, one hundred different ways and they will still misbill you. Then you call to correct the problem, and they'll say, "Wow, I've never heard of that deal. That is a really good price." And all for $4.

This is from a conversation we had on the previous TV Greats thread...

I noticed earlier BB7L wasn't working on the site (only the Cosby DVD was available), so just put in any code and then email and complain.
Recently got a flyer that indicates "The Honeymooners" DVD (KW7) is now available.

However, its not listed on the web site and its not available when I enter BB7L (or E56L---the code that its list under).

Any suggestions on how I can order this one?

I'm guessing you'll have to wait (at least) until the membership is approved or (at most) until you get the DVDs. I applied via StartSampling the other day and still haven't even been approved yet.

But when people get their GCs, let us know

Has anyone who signed up for this through MyPoints gotten credit? It's been a couple of weeks since I was approved and got my first DVD, but no points not even "Pending." Not sure who to e-mail at MyPoints.

LBpound: I have the same problem. I usually email [email protected], I think, but I haven't yet. I still need to cancel my accounts first.
