Easter specialty shop. 4 for $29.95

Just a heads up on the specialty shop. Easter.

Mostly old titles, and mostly $14.95 dvd's.

b1g1 does work.

How did you get B1G1 to work? I tried entering 854198 with zero results.

Enter in the code, then hit the easter shop, pick your 4 titles, go to checkout and the discount is there. Instead of 29.95 it's 22.46, not to mention the $16 in funcash!

I tried it. It makes one of the 4 dvds free. I thought 4 dvds for $22.46 makes each dvd $5.61. Then when I went to the next screen, it added shipping for each selection (.99 each) + tax, which brought my total to a little over $28. That would make each dvd about $7, which isn't as good. & I can't get the free shipping email to work with this promotion. Otherwise it would work out pretty well.

I didn't use B1G1, but I did go ahead and use the free shipping code and that worked fine...on top of that, it counted two of my selections as commitment titles (Ben-Hur and Ten Commandments), even though they averaged out to only $7.50 a piece...rule

The total for four DVDs with shipping and tax is about $28.xx. If you consider the $16 in FunCash, it's a pretty good deal.

Ok so the question is do these count towards your fulfillment agreement?

For some reason I can only get $19.95 titles to work in the Easter Sale. It won't discount the $14.95 titles in the sale for me. Anyone else have this problem?

I noticed that not all of the titles they list as part of the sale actually have the discount applied when in the cart.

I had a problem with one club with it accepting one of my selections...I ended up adding a fifth title and it then discounted all five (four for $29.95 and then however much the other title was off) the total ended up coming to $35 before tax (I used the free shipping code), it then applied two of those selections as commitment titles.

I've got 4 $19.99 titles in my cart at the moment and each one has "checkmarkCounts towards commitment ( units)" next to it. However, notice that there is no number in front of "units." When I added a pre-order to the cart in addition to those 4, the preorder also had counts towards commitment message, but there was a 1 in front of "units." Not sure what this means...if anything.

If all 4 count as commitments, this would be the best TV DVD account I've had:

CSI season 1
CSI season 2
Stand By Me
Braveheart
Sixteen Candles
Top Gun

Total: $41 and change

Same here!

I get a total of $22.46 but I can't get free shipping

The real total is $28.07/4 = $7.01 per dvd

The free shipping will give the deal a good run but not $7 per dvd. I might as well open a new account and get the titles offered there.

Not a very good deal after all.

Well in the interest of building up FC, this is the order I just put in:

Taking Lives Unrated Director's Cut
3238300
$7.49
*
The Core
2937506
$7.48
*
The Wizard of Oz
2383602
$7.49
*
Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory
2672202
$7.49
*
The Good Girl
2789741
$5.95
*
Subtotal
$35.90

Shipping & Processing
$4.95

Tax
$2.94

Total
$43.79

Savings, this order *
$53.85

Average DVD Price: *
$7.18
for this order excluding sets *

FunCash, this order *
$30.00

So if you use the earned FC as a discount, it's under three dollars per disk.

And I used code: 801050 for the $10 FC from a $35.00 order.

Is there a code for the Easter sale? I log into my preferred member account and it's not there but when I log into my account that is not fulfilled, it's there.

Can you confirm that both of those dvd's ended up counting as fulfillments? If so, I will try it out for myself. Or did both together only count as 1?
