Don't know which one you want(FOTR,TTT,TOTK),but I ordered the ROTK gift set(the one with the extended version,Creating The Lord Of The Rings Symphony DVD and the Minas Tirith polystone)a few weeks ago.With the webdvd $5 off coupon it came to a little over $17.Pretty good deal.

I went to my account with one fulfill left and added LOTR: TT Extended and LOTR: ROTK Extended to my cart. Using 807747 it came up 29.95 for ROTK and 14.95 for TT. Using 807750 it came up 22.95 for ROTK and free for TT plus shipping.

Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit 04333209W Free

Rent Special Edition 04249108W Free

The Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King Extended Edition 03374907W $17.46

Titanic Special Collector's Edition 04209409W $22.46

Subtotal 39.92

Shipping & Processing FREE

Tax FREE


Total 39.92

Here's my question: since they deducted the webdvd $5 from LOTR, it will still count as a commitment purchase, right? I'm pretty sure other people have already asked this but I wanted to be sure. It said next to both LOTR and Titanic that they were commitment purchases, but I wanted to double check since my plan was to be done and out once this order goes through and use B1G1 on my other accounts! Thanks!

Yes, it will still count. I had the same thing with a few past accounts.

Actually, I think it only works with 19.99 or MORE DVD's (I tried with some 9.95 ones and it did not work, so I read the offer details and it mentioned 19.95 or above). But like was previously stated, you can't get box sets for free. However, you can buy a box set that is on sale, and get a free DVD based on the LIST price of the box set. So you can get Criterions and other expensive DVD's for free, just not box sets or pre-orders...

However, 807750 apparently isn't following this rule based on one of the previous posts. If that code actually gives box sets for free, I may have to look into using it, even though I would have to pay for shipping...

FWIW, 807747 does not require the purchase of three DVDs to qualify for free shipping! This is helpful when buying a box set for fulfillment (plus a high cost freebie, of course).

I purchased a box set plus a free Criterion to fulfill my TV Edition account. The account cost me $49.91 for three box sets plus a Criterion DVD. Not too shabby...

Are the B1G1 codes stackable with webdvd? Either they're not, or they are and I'm screwing it up somehow. Assuming I screwed up, here's the sequence I used:

A - Log in to account
B - Enter B1G1 code
C - Put titles in the cart
D - Enter webdvd code -- error!

Log into the website from www.columbiahouse.com/webdvd, enter the B1G1 code, put titles in cart, and checkout.

Yesterday the site kept screwing up and telling me I wasn't logged in. I could get to the final order page and click "Place Order" and it would give me an error telling me to log in. I was using Firefox which usually works fine, but I tried again in Internet Explorer and I got my order in.

Try this sequence-

A- Log in to your account at columbiahouse.com/webdvd
B- Enter B1G1 code
C- Put titles in the cart
D- Check out(the $5 off should be in your cart as long as your order is over $30).

So with the B1G1 free code plus the stackable webdvd, there are a lot of choices out there..... If you're just after DVDs, it seems that the best per-title price is had via K7L 5:2, as below:

K7L 5:2 = [email protected] + [email protected] + [email protected] - 5 = 37.35/9 = 4.15 **BEST PRICE**
K7L 6:1 = [email protected] + 14.95 + [email protected] + [email protected] = 37.35/8 = 4.67
C7L 6:3 = [email protected] + [email protected] + [email protected] - 5 = 57.79/12 = 4.82
C7L 7:2 = [email protected] + 9.95 + [email protected] + [email protected] - 5 = 47.79/11 = 4.34

But the math gets a little screwy if you order a Box Set as part of the fulfillment w/B1G1. If one assumes that the first fulfillment title will be a box set that sells for 34.95 (after discount), and if we also assume that the DVDs could be had for 4.15 apiece (which is the best price for DVDs w/B1G1 in force via K7L 5:2), things look like this:

K7L 5:2 = [email protected] + [email protected]+ [email protected] + [email protected] - 5 = 52.35/Box+8
-> Box = 52.35 - 8*4.15 = 19.15
K7L 6:1 = [email protected] + 14.95 + [email protected] + [email protected] - 5 = 47.35/Box+7
-> Box = 47.35 - 7*4.15 = 18.30 **BEST PRICE**
C7L 6:3 = [email protected] + [email protected] + [email protected] + [email protected] - 5 = 72.79/Box+11
-> Box = 72.79 - 11*4.15 = 27.14
C7L 7:2 = [email protected] + 9.95 + [email protected] + [email protected] + [email protected] - 5 = 62.79/Box+10
-> Box = 62.79 - 10*4.15 = 21.29

If one wants TWO 34.95 box sets:

K7L 5:2 = [email protected] + [email protected]+ [email protected] + [email protected] - 5 = 67.35/Boxes+7
-> Boxes = 67.35 - 7*4.15 = 38.30/2 = 19.15 ea **BEST PRICE**
C7L 6:3 = [email protected] + [email protected] + [email protected] + [email protected] + [email protected] - 5 = 87.79/Boxes+10
-> Boxes = 87.79 - 10*4.15 = 46.29/2 = 23.15 ea
C7L 7:2 = [email protected] + 9.95 + [email protected] + [email protected] + [email protected] - 5 = 77.79/Boxes+9
-> Boxes = 77.79 - 9*4.15 = 40.44/2 = 20.22 ea

If one wants THREE box sets:

C7L 6:3 = [email protected] + [email protected] + [email protected] + [email protected] + [email protected] - 5 = 102.79/Boxes+9
-> Boxes = 102.79 - 10*4.15 = 61.29/3 = 20.43 ea

So it summarizes like this:
If you don't want any box sets, go K7L 5:2 (4.15 ea for 9)
If you want ONE 34.95 box set, go K7L 6:1 (4.15 for 7, 18.30 for box)
If you want TWO 34.95 box sets, go K7L 5:2 (3.78 for 7, 19.15 ea for 2 boxes)
If you want THREE 34.95 box sets, go C7L 6:3 (3.78 for 9, 20.43 ea for 3 boxes)

Man, this needs to be scripted somewhere... the variables would be which code (K7L or C7L), whether to "let it ride" or take an extra DVD at enrollment to reduce the obligation by 1, how many box sets to take, whether to take a more expensive box set (to count for multiple fulfillment credits), and what the post-discount price of those sets come to.

None of this considers the effect of taking a 39.95+ box set, which counts as TWO enrollments. This is covered below.

Your K7L 5:2 math is low because in each case you are including 6 @ 49 cents in your calculations. I calculated the basic K7L 5:2 to average $4.15/DVD, not $3.78.

^ Good catch Jim.

kenbuzz, you must have a lot of time on your hands!
The numbers will differ also if one uses a $39.95+ box set (good for two fulfillments):

K7L 5:2 = [email protected] + [email protected] + [email protected] - 5 = 37.40/Box+6
-> Box = 37.40 - 6*4.15 = 12.50

K7L 6:1 = [email protected] + 14.95 + [email protected] + [email protected] - 5 =52.35/Box+7
-> Box = 52.35 - 7*4.15 = 23.30

C7L 6:3 = [email protected] + [email protected] + [email protected] + [email protected] - 5 = 57.84/Box+9
-> Box = 57.84 - 9*4.15= 20.49

C7L 7:2 = [email protected] + 9.95 + [email protected] + [email protected] - 5 = 47.84/Box+8
-> Box = 47.84 - 8*4.15 = 14.64

(Of course, most box sets don't actually cost $39.95, rather, $41.96 and $44.96 are more typical prices. So the prices above need to be adjusted by the difference between the "special price" of the set and $39.95.)

Yup, I fat-fingered the spreadsheet and put a '6' where a '5' shoulda been. I'll re-do it in a skosh.

Update: The math has been redone.

This might be a stupid question, but I thought that a box set had to cost $49.99 or above to count for 2 fulfillments, not $39.95. Is this correct?

According to CH's FAQ, box sets that are $50-$89.99 counts as 2 toward your purchase agreement. However, when I add Smallville to my cart, it rings up at $44.96 and it does count as 2 towards fulfillment(maybe it counts as 2 because the list price is over $50).

^I just fulfilled with Battlestar Galactica: Season One for $39.96, and chose The Ruling Class: The Criterion Collection as my freebie. After the $5 webdvd discount, my fulfillment cost me only $34.96. Not too shabby for a boxed set and a criterion.

CH never bothered to change it on their website, but $39.95 has been the two-commitments minimum for a couple years. It was basically when TV edition came into existence that they changed the schedule.

^Yes. The new fulfillment credit schedule is located inside the back cover of the catalog that comes with each enrollment package. But Columbia House never got around to updating the FAQ information on its website ... for several years now... What, you expected accurate information on the CH website?

The current Columbia House fulfillment credit schedule:
Selections purchased at $19.95 to $39.94 count for one
Selections purchased at $39.95 to $59.94 count for two
Selections purchased at $59.95 to $79.94 count for three
Selections purchased at $79.95 to $99.94 count for four
Selections purchased at $99.95 and higher count for five

FYI: The Matrix Unlimited Collector's Set w/figurine is $41.xx in your cart. This could count as 2 fulfillments and will allow you to get a nice Criterion DVD for FREE!

I'm presuming that these are the PRE-discount prices, or do you have to actually pay $39.95+ to get multiple fulfillment credit?

You actually have to pay $39.95 or more to get multiple fulfillment credits.

If you call in an order, is it possible to get a special edition as the free title? I would like to get the Evil Dead 2 Book of the dead as my freebie, but it won't work even with a set.


Also, is there a way to stop sets from dropping below 39.95 in the cart? I wanted to buy Quantum Leap season 2, it is listed as 49.95 but drops to 37.95 in my cart.

are people having their orders shipped? I placed mine on 2/24 and everything is still pending, even though I've been charged. granted one of the titles is a preorder that comes out on 3/14, I wonder if they are holding it up because of that.
