i joined it both by phone and online. no psn required, and online had the billme and CC option, FYI.
Thanks for the code. I just joined with 8 special editions for $22.84, shipping included. I got:

Purple Rain 20Th Anniversary Special Edition
Yankee Doodle Dandy Special Edition
Singin' in the Rain Special Edition
Gandhi Special Edition
Heat Special Edition
Leon: The Professional Deluxe Edition
All the President's Men [Special Edition]
Once Upon a Time in America Special Edition.

There are lots of 2-disc sets for new enrollees now, it seems. That's a great savings.

Yes, it is great savings. It would be even slightly greater savings if you opted not to get the 8th selection, and instead bought it as one of your fulfillment titles. No big deal, only a few bucks difference, but if you plan to open more accounts, you should remember to just choose the 7th DVD for $9.95 (which reduces your commitment) and not the 8th.

There are no current B1G1 codes afaik, but I would think there should be one soon. They have been pretty regular over the past month but they usually only run for three days or so- wait to see what offers come out this weekend before ordering.

Sometimes the $5 is deducted from the price of one of the DVDs in your order.

I tried a phone enrollment today and the following are all apparently no longer valid:

LMTD
LMYD
C7LD

Has anyone else phoned in an LMTD-type enrollment within the last couple of days? If so, what code was used? I'm looking for a "standard" PSN code that yields [email protected] (free shipping) + [email protected] + 2 fullfilment.

It does look like the above codes are being accepted by the web-enrollment site, however that doesn't necessarily mean that they would lead to an accepted application.

^The information is a couple of weeks old, but 38Y and EBP were reported to work on the phone.

I listed several new codes on the previous page that could be tried, if those above don't work:
C8M, C8Q, C8W, 42E, and 42G.

I may try a phone enrollment in a few days and will try some of these out.

Note: FWIW, now that the video club is defunct, the fourth character,"D", is no longer being used on Columbia House mailings.

Thanks Lizard. I just called again and they won't accept 38Y. Apparently, something has changed (either deliberate or another one of those long Holiday weekend glitches). We may need to hear from someone who has actually gotten a good-code mailing recently. If that fails, I'll try a web-app. I actually had two go through in Feb-March using C7L but the third attempt put me back in the ditch...

Edit: just re-read your message, I'll try 42G, etc. in a bit. Thanks.

I tried a web K7* a couple of weeks ago. No dice. Haven't tried a 7:2 since last year; my most recent account was a TV Edition.

The new codes I listed were all from "We Want You Back" e-mails; I have never received a decent 7:2 code in a mailing.

If we lose phone orders, that would be bad news for those of us with many previous accounts. I hope that it is a holiday weekend glitch.

Pardon me, but how do you extract a promotional code from an E-mail message? I checked the message itself, and could not find anything resembling a three digit code.

Edit: Never mind—I see it in the URL which resulted from when I clicked the link in the message: 42G (5+option for one for $9.95, free shipping, plus two to buy).

Hey Doc; was that 5+1 or 6+1??? I doubt our buddy Lizard would have posted a 5+1 code.

Had me wondering there! But, yes, I just checked again and 42G is a good 7:2 code with the $9.95 bonus.

C8M and 42G are both now invalid for phone orders (as of today). I'm not liking the looks of this.

Edit: having failed again, I scrounged up an old (March) email from CH with a 7:2 "standard" offer (code = C88). Pretending to be a normal customer, I clicked the email link and submitted an on-line application. Who knows what's changed on the CH end? They could be linking offer codes to email addresses to phone numbers to zip codes to ???

My last approved web app was in March and my last phone app was in May; so hopefully I appear to CH as somewhat of a non-cycler. We'll see...

I just had a 1KK web application approved. I applied Thursday, my credit card was charged Friday and Saturday morning I got the "Welcome to the Club" email. I have a TV club account open and the last account I opened was in March. I can't remember that last time I tried to join by phone, I always apply online.

I don't need to cycle accounts quickly. With about 600 DVDs, one account every few months is enough for me. Now I'll wait for a B1G1 offer with free shipping.

Thanks for the info Void. I'm in a similar situation (now), finding that a new account every two or three months should be all I'll want.

Lizard: you've got mail
