A list of all offer codes

To view the most current codes, go to:

http://randomcafe.net/ch/codes.php


===

Okay, I made a script that checks every code 80000-809999. Sometime in the near future I'll make a web page that runs it every week or something and will show the updated list. One problem is that it only shows codes that work for my account, but I think most codes work for all accounts except for the monthly offerings like 40% off, $10 off, etc.

Here's what I got when I did it tonight:

801005: DVDs at 50% off!
when you buy 1 at regular price
801059: GET FREE SHIPPING ON ALL DVDS! NO MINIMUM PURCHASE REQUIRED!
803434: Buy 1 DVD at $19.95 and get 1 of equal or lesser value FREE. [this expired 5/20]
804037: Get 2 for $20 DVDs & Earn a Purchase Credit!
804150: Get Unlimited DVDs at up to 50% off!
when you buy one regular priced DVD at $19.95 or higher Plus, enjoy a Special Reward and get an EXTRA $10 FunCash with your order of $35 or more!
804159: GET FREE SHIPPING ON ALL DVDS! NO MINIMUM PURCHASE REQUIRED!

I posted the 2 for $20 in the other topic because it's similar to the B1G1 code in that it counts for committment. Unfortunately, I think it only works for $19.95 titles, but it's better than nothing now that the other one expired - this expires May 27.

AWESOME! Thanks for the work, Paul! I might have to give one of those free shipping codes a shot sometime tonight. Now, you just need to pickup the Data Miner project and also write a script that checks enrollment codes.

Nice job Mpaul, thank you!

In case anyone is still planning on ordering DVDs from the '2 for $18' sale, code 804150 is 'stackable' with that. I realize Funcash isn't worth nearly as much these days, but if you were gonna buy 4 or more of the 2 for $18 DVDs anyway, you might as well get the extra $10 in Funcash.

The FREE SHIPPING ON ALL DVD's codes 801059, 804159 seems as expected too good to be true. I tried them out and they did not work for me but at the same time I am trying to use my $5 off for first order so maybe thats the deal, but I assume it is not going to work. Oh well.

i am able to get the free shipping no minimum to work with webdvd - however it does not give free s/h to boxsets - so that idea is not working...

also, 804037: Get 2 for $20 DVDs & Earn a Purchase Credit!

behaves very weird in the cart... first, it must be $19.95 titles only - second if you add other things to the cart, you pay full price, also, it will not count even a set in the cart as a commitment, which is making it very hard to order something, stacked with webdvd, and fufill an account.

thanx OP! - looking foward to new codes

Good idea, an enrollment code thing wouldn't take too long, so maybe I'll do that next...and maybe the Data Miner thing eventually...but I'm gonna take a break first. Hopefully I don't crash CH by using all their bandwidth...

801059 doesn't work on my unfufilled account but 804159 does. And it does give free shipping on a single regular DVD order but not on sets, as reported above, despite what the terms say. I find it curious that the terms also say that the code expires on April 3. Strange.

Despite not working for sets, this would be a great code for regular fulfillment DVDs when "free shipping for three" has ended.

If it weren't for that expiration date I'd suggest talking to a "web specialist" about sets not getting free shipping, despite what the terms say. But with the date, such an approach likely wouldn't work because the offer appears to be a mistake.

804037, 2 for $20, also works on my account for $19.95 DVDs, as mpaul39 said. Another nice find.

Great work mpaul39! I'll throw in another "vote" for a next generation data miner to provide all available titles. If you can crack that one, we'll name you CH-forum-king...

(at least for a day )

Thanks mpaul39 for putting together this script and list. Most excellent work. As others have mentioned, an enrollment script would also be a GREAT thing. Keep up the great work.

If you ever saw The Wicker Man, you'd realize that being "king for a day" isn't a very desirable outcome.

i wound up going this route thanks to this post... just got a LMT code account aprooved, a day late for the b1g1f... but i see those as a extra bonus to cash in every now and then, the regularly constant deals you can eek out are still amazing

7 for 12.89
Gremlins Special Edition 06082 Pending $9.00 (commitment)
Bruce Almighty 29718 Pending $9.00
Batman: The Animated Series - Volume Three 38690 Pending $28.71 (commitment and webdvd)
Subtotal $46.71

fufilled the account and got 15$ in FC - which i then immidiatly spent and got the new SE of 12 monkeys for the $2.99 s/h.

obviously the extra $10 fc code i used is not so useful if your not in a FC redemption period, because you'd want to cycle the account... but it worked out as...


10 regular titles and 1 set for: 62.59

Average Price Per Title 5.32
Relative Cost of Set: 9.39

COMPARED WITH DDD: $109.90 (10.99 avg) for 10 titles and 33.12 for the set.
$80.52 saved....

i love playing this game.

I don't know if this was already common knowledge, but the 2 for 19.95 code will not work on preorders priced at 19.95.

I posted this in the B1G1 thread but haven't received a response:

In regards to the "buy 2 for $20 and earn a purchase credit," what is a purchase credit? I'm not one to typically be clueless when it comes to CH knowledge, but I find myself wondering what this code will do for me.

I guess it's the same as a commitment credit.

..........and I'm sure there are a few people that would slip you some DVDs or cash to make it worth your while if you were successful!

Not a very good one but still thought I would put it out there.

I think it is a good code because a lot of us in here buy in bulk, so buying 2 TV sets is easy to do. Unfortunately, though, the code doesn't work on my account It is a relatively new fulfilled account with my fulfillment order as the only order placed, so this code may only work on certain accounts.

Is there anyway to use the 804037 code (Get 2 for $20 DVDs & Earn a Purchase Credit!) to get two fulfillment credits? I tried to put 4 $19.95 titles (no pre-orders) in my cart. However, it's only listing two titles as .5 units for fulfillment each and the other two titles don't count for fulfillment at all. Each title is priced at $10.

It is likely that even though the credit is listed incorrectly it would give you two fulfillment credits. But to be safe, the way to handle it is to call up, tell the CSR that you are "having trouble placing an order on the web" and the you "would like to speak with a web specialist". You will be transfered to a web CSR who can pull up your account as you see it and verify the problem. Tell the web specialist the offer code you would like to use and let him or her verify what sort of fulfillment credit you are getting.

If the web specialist tells you that the offer is for only fulfillment credit per two DVDs ordered then this offer isn't a worthwhile deal. But it might just be a mixup in their programming, in which case the CSR can give you the credit you want.

Why not just make 2 orders? It seems as if others used the code on a single order and it worked to get 1 fulfillment credit. Don't forget to combine those single orders with the free shipping code.

I hate calling CSR's (especially to cancel!), that's my only reason for why I offer this alternative up.

When I tested the code I found that it listed only fulfillment credit for 2 DVDs. I assumed it was a glitch. But there is no way to know until someone tries an order or calls and finds out what is going on.

Splitting orders like you suggest makes it harder to take advantage of "free shipping for three" and a $20 order does not qualify for the $5 discount for first time web orders. So splitting fulfillment orders is not a good practice.

I have a code to share, not sure if it'll work for everyone though...but it's worth a shot:

The Code # is 801098:
Get a FREE DVD (of equal or lesser value) when you buy one at $19.95 or higher!*

*Plus shipping & processing. Upcoming Releases, Director's Selections, Sets and other specially priced items will not participate in this offer as the free unit.

My letter from CH says that it's a "limited time offer" but does not specify an expiration date for this offer.

^ Thanks for the code, but when I put it in, it just tells me it's free shipping on three titles, which is the already default deal currently.
