DV2 Club?
 
I'm very confussed about the DV2 club. Is it worth it? If I already have two accounts with Columbia House can I sign up?

pilot 03-07-05 02:50 PM

yes you can sign up with DV2 if you already have two accounts..I find it decent..it's good to use to move funcash over and hold it ..also good if you want to just buy the deal of the day ..won't pay any shipping cost..just tax (if you are charged tax)..

acidworkzfx 03-07-05 02:54 PM

So you can earn funchase with the DV2 club too? Does it reset every year? Do all the same codes work for the DV2 club?

Yes. Yes. Depends. You won't get deals like the Oscar sale or 2 Action Titles for $18 there, however.

Can you cancel the DV2 club after you fulfill your commitment?

duganrm 03-07-05 08:00 PM

How do you put in codes to sign up for the DV2 club? I may have some that work but don't know how to test them.

pilot 03-07-05 08:56 PM

not sure..don't think you can...though I don't remember...

Yes, but you might as well keep it open. You can deposit your Funcash from other accounts into your DV2 account. Besides, it doesn't count towards the "two DVD accounts per address" rule.

There's a thread around here that will show you how to do it. It is probably buried under 6 or 7 pages. Sadly, "DV2" is too short for a search. You can phone in an application, also.

dsa_shea 03-07-05 10:06 PM

I put in an application for the dv2 club. It was 9.95 for two sets with free shipping and only one purchase of 19.95 to fulfill. The only think is that I dont want to be charged the yearly fee.

Any DVD purchase will fullfill in DV2. I bought "Galaxy Quest" on special for $4.95 and that fullfilled my commitment. I quit the club last year to avoid the yearly fee and rejoined again recently with no problem and got 2 DVD's for my $9.95 new enrollment for the year...

One way is in your browser window exactly enter: go.columbiahouse.com
and then you can enter your savings code(s) after your scroll down a little bit on the screen. If you enter "HDX" as a code then you will automatically go to the "DV2" area where you can get 2 DVD's for $9.95 instead of the regular one DVD for $9.95. Don't enter "WWW." as part of the "go.columbiahouse.com" address as that will not work correctly. Good luck on your code checking!

Big Worms 03-07-05 10:53 PM

Just signed up myself. I like how they have 40% off boxsets all the time.

Keith123 03-07-05 10:57 PM

And Free shipping ALL the time! If only tax wasn't charged for Ohio...oh, well!

Big Worms 03-07-05 10:59 PM

Oh yeah how could I forget that Keith123.

So one could theoretically have five CH dvd accounts open at one time?

2 DVD Club
2 DVD Club TV Edition
1 DV2

I don't think I'd try five, but I could definitely see going four. DV2 for dotd and funcash orders. 1 each unfulfilled TV and DVD club waiting for 40% boxset sale w/free shipping, and a DVD club account for cycling.

Pending approval of course, does this seem feasible and within the CH account guidelines?

that looks alot like the standard dvd club. The only thing that changes when you add the DV2 code is the little banner at the top. Has anyone actually been approved applying that way??

from what I have read here, I believe you can have 6. You can also have 2 DV2 accounts open (although there is probably no reason to have 2).

That is how I did it just last week.

you got approved? Do you think it counts as a dvd club or dv2 club? are you only able to have 1 other dvd club open at a time or can you have 2 others.

I was approved and once you get your two selections entered and go to the next screen for entry of your address info and stuff- the text in the membership rules box are for the DV2 club...

I have 2 open dvd clubs (the normal ones) and now I have this one the dv2 club.

This is exactly how you know that it falls under the DV2 club.

j-bo 03-08-05 02:31 PM

I may be missing something here. After I put in the HDX code......

In the "member details". It says you will be charged $9.95 for the club. Cancel within 10 days and it will be refunded.

"Choose 2 DVDs for $4.98 each, with free shipping! All you need to do is buy 1 DVDs over the next year at $19.95 or more plus shipping and processing"


My math may be screwy, but isn't this expensive? I don't see the benefit of joining.

SFranke 03-08-05 02:43 PM

$10 for two DVDs is a very good deal. You can always purchase a Deal of the Day title for your obligation.

Wait a minute...$9.95 for two SETS or two DVDs? If you can get 2 sets and then fulfill with a DOD, that'd be killer. Could someone please clear this up for me? Thanks.

Big Worms 03-08-05 03:07 PM

2 dvds. Not sets.

One thing about the DV2 club is you can forget about retail $19.95 DVD prices. In DV2, every dvd is always at least 40% off retail. That is one reason why you can buy any DVD at any price to fullfill your commitment for the year. When you first enroll you do pay your first yearly fee for $9.95, but DV2 will let you select 2 free DVD's for joining. So, if after 11 months or whatever you can quit the club if you don't want to pay another $9.95 for your second year(or just quit and rejoin like I did to get 2 free DVD's again). Also, pay more attention to what the membership details say on the official sign-up 2nd page where you enter your address, rather than on that very first generic page where you first pick your selections.

Things to keep in mind about the DV2 club:

---Every DVD is at least 40% off retail all the time
---Shipping is always free
---No "Directors Selections" to respond to
---Order just 1 DVD for any amount and your commitment is over for the year

When I applied it said to pick two sets. Then it said that I would only have to purchase one dvd at 19.95 or higher in the next year. If they dont accept my application then it doesnt hurt trying.

sade 03-09-05 07:28 AM

Is the selection very limited when you sign up ? I'm at step 3 and it won't let me go back and select anything else than what's on that page.

Thanks for the info. After I read the generic stuff, I didn't continue.

acidworkzfx 03-09-05 09:34 AM

Could anyone who is already a member of the DV2 club tell me how much the Lord of the Rings Box Gift sets are?

Big Worms 03-09-05 09:44 AM

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring Gift Set 2001 - 47.95
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers Collector's Gift Set 2002 - 47.95
The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King Collector's Gift Set 2003 - 47.95

acidworkzfx 03-09-05 09:48 AM

Thanks

j-bo 03-09-05 02:59 PM

I dunno, I'm still undecided on this one. Trying to find out why I would want to keep this, when I have one permanent CH acct and one CH that I cycle through.

I went through the process right until checkout, and kept thinking .. why do this?

2 dvd's for $9.95 ( it does say they will send a free dvd for joining?, is this the 2nd choice, or a 3rd one?) plus the $9.95 yearly fee and say a deal of the day for 5.95 or so.

Scott Connors 03-09-05 03:32 PM

I'm undecided about this one also. I am saving up my funcash to redeem for a Monty Python megaset (yes, I aim high!), which is about $150 plus S&H from the regular CH dvd club. How much would it be from DV2, and has anyone been able to transfer (successfully) that much funcash into a DV2 account? Thanks!
Best,
Scott

I believe the $9.95 annual fee includes the 2 DVDs - they are not an additional $9.95.

It is $119.97 with free shipping.

Yep.

j-bo 03-09-05 04:12 PM

Geez... I'm a doofus.

And I thought all this time I had pretty good reading comprehension! AACccccccck

Film_Lover 03-10-05 11:29 AM

I think the club is a really good deal, especially when you compare the DVD prices to the "regular" prices in the other clubs (assuming you haven't fulfilled your obligations of course). It's a nice way to get cheaper DVDs without having to jump through as many hoops as the traditional clubs. Of course I'm a member of the DVD Club, the TV Club, and DV2...but that's just because I'm addicted.
