DVDs 50% off for Mother's Day (works with funcash)

Columbia House is having a 50% off sale for Mother's Day. You should be able to find the sale by logging into your account.

None of the prices are that great if you are used to cycling through accounts. However, I tried adding several DVDs to my funcash cart, and the discounted price came up for all of them.

Nice catch. Looks like those $19.95 sets are working with funcash too, even the free shipping part of the deal.

I haven't placed the order yet, but I'm thinking about it. I've got more funcash coming, but it's from preorders and I don't wanna wait and miss out on this.

Airplane: "Don't Call Me Shirley!" Edition
Police Squad: The Complete Series
Eddie Murphy: Raw
Glory Special Edition
The Green Mile Special Edition
Catch Me If You Can
Schindler's List
Total $18.34

Amazing that this works with funcash! This makes all of us who placed big orders using that 60% off and triple fun cash 3+ code recently (it still works but no free shipping on it anymore) look like geniuses! I've placed an $80 order and got $65 funcash for it. Glad I waited a week to spend the Funcash too. With this sale going on, I can get about 6 2-disc SE's on my list instead of the 3 that I was planning on at regular prices.

When I added some of these items and go to checkout , it say's in red "error in processing your checkout request......we've modified your cart" but it doesn't actually modify anything thta I can see.

I may hold back on this as there's not a huge selection of anything I want; and i'm hoping for a special with funcash like what happened with the boxsets last December. I have a lot of funcash from the Febuary tripple deal. I wish i didn't miss out on ordering during the one that ended Sunday now.

I usually see that error when I've tried to "force" a non-FC cart eligible item into the cart (ie. pre-order).

jester, just curious did they ship your copy of Lost Room? I checked my order status and out of all the funcash purchases that one has disappeared from my order and I have a new total reflecting the removal of said title but my FC hasn't been returned.

Thanks.

My order still shows as "outstanding", but my CH CC history shows that I've been charged for the entire order. All 3 titles are still showing in the order.

Thanks for asking, well I haven't gotten it yet but I got part of my order and the receipt shows The Lost Room as have been "Shipped seperately" I'll believe it when I see it but if it does arrive I'll no longer put to much stock in what's posted on the website.

Might be they ran low on stock "unexpectedly" - causing the delay?

Thanks for the head's up, OP. I only had $37 in funcash - missed out on that BOGO Free Ship, Triple FC - but I still grabbed Inside Man, Psycho, Rear Window, and the American Tail 2 Pack for less than $12 shipped.

FC is suppose to only be good @ regular prices - not discounted anything. This I believe is a "fluke". Or, as experienced a long while back(quite regularly it seemed) - a programming error on CHs' part.

Regardless, it's great to take advantage of this fluke! Dr. Strangelove can be had for merely $15 in FC plus shipping... OR it and the rest of the Mom's Day sales DVD are working with B1G1 free codes even when you're buying a cheaper DVD at regular club price. For example:

Big Fish Special Edition regular club price is $19.95
Dr. Strangelove 40th AE regular club price is $29.95 but sale priced at $14.98 (in the Gifts for Dad section)

Normally it would make you buy Dr. Strangelove at the regular club price, so you'd get two discs for $29.95 with a B1G1 code. Instead, it's only charging you for Big Fish at regular price and Strangelove is FREE. So you can get both for $19.95. Not bad considering this normally a spendy title for a commitment selection and it's not available for enrollment.
