Did anyone order the Chariot's of Fire Se during the last sale and end up with the one disc snapper version instead?

I preordered the Casino Royale 40th Anniversary Edition recently with a B1G1 code (along with 3:10 to Yuma). Apparently, CR was supposed to come out in November, but has been pushed back to next June. The order is still showing up in my order history, but Casino Royale is nowhere to be found on the site (I searched title and selection #). Will they cancel this automatically or do I need to call?

You may be in for some luck. There's a very good chance that they will ship out 3:10 to Yuma and that they won't charge you a dime for it. Check out the "Has this ever happened to anyone?" thread and you'll see what I mean.

Can I Also Use The Same Name And Checking Account#? Or Same Name But Instead Of My Checking Account#, Should I Use My Saving Account#? Or Do I Have To Use Another Persons Information? I Would Appreciate If Somebody Can Answer This Question For Me. Thanks

I have used the exact same name, address, e-mail and credit card for all of my multiple open accounts and have never experienced any problems whatsoever(I've been in various CH clubs since the early 80's). BTW, welcome to the forum!

You are allowed 2 open accounts per club, per street address. So, you can have 2 open DVD Club accounts, 2 TV Club accounts(CH considers this a different entity form their DVD Club), 2 ch.com accounts and 2 BMG CD Club accounts all at the same time. If you really need even more open accounts, you can use the same name, e-mail and credit card info but a different street address(perhaps a relative) and do the whole dance all over again!

There is no point to having more than one CH.com account. You can have two open regular DVD club accounts and two open TV Edition accounts. Assuming that you can get your applications accepted. More that two open accounts of each type tends to lead to a rejection letter.

Many of us leave one account open and cycle another one. Others cycle two accounts.

Leaving one account open allows one to take advantage of any good deals that come along when/if it becomes difficult to get a new account open. Also, many of us already have all the enrollment DVDs we want and are mostly interested in newer stuff or High Definition.

Be aware that getting new accounts open is not automatic and can be quite difficult after one has had more than a few. Nevertheless, there are people here who have had more than a hundred accounts over the years. (I have had more than 75 accounts and find it very difficult to get new ones opened, even using phone applications.)

If you haven't already done so, you might want to read the first post in this thread; it might answer some questions for you.

^I will reiterate: There is no point in having more than one CH.com account. The enrollment selections are limited and poor, so there is no use in cycling CH.com accounts.

Regular club accounts are a different matter, most of us cycle regular DVD club accounts. Having two of those is routine. As is having one CH.com account.

As to the difference between the two, you really need to read the FAQ in the first post in this thread (that's why it is there). If you did that you would find this:

• What is “CH.com”? Is it different from the regular DVD Club?

Yes, CH.com accounts (www.ch.com) are very different from the regular DVD club accounts (www.columbiahouse.com). With CH.com prices are usually 40% off list, shipping is always free, and there are no “Director’s Selections” to fuss with. Also, the two required fulfillments can be any price, as opposed to $19.95 or more.

The downside is that the enrollment selection is very limited and one can’t use sale offer codes at CH.com. This means that DVDs purchased in a regular club account are usually much less expensive than at CH.com. But CH.com is more convenient and much less hassle. Many of us keep a CH.com account open in addition to our regular DVD club accounts.

For more information and discussion about Ch.com, check out the Is signing up for ch.com worth it? thread and the CH.Com Deals thread.

What's the longest anyone has waited for a dvd that shipped? Have a dvd that shipped on Sept 26th but is still not here yet. Usually it never takes more than a week to get my stuff but for some reason this dvd is taking forever.

Now why'd you have to go and say that?

See sale offer thread......

Sorry to "pick on you" new member. We truly do welcome you to the forum, but never, ever, type anything in all caps. And please read the threads before asking questions.

That did make me laugh.

But I think we're looking at posts from someone for whom English is not the native language. So, he/she is probably typing into a program like Word, and then having that program capitalize all the words because he/she does not know the complex rules of capitalization in English. After all, why would a person *intentionally* make the posts difficult to read--especially when asking for help? That would be so incredibly stupid. And then why write "Dvd" and "Ch?" It would take so much effort to intentionally capitalize and intentionally lower-case words like that.

And a big ditto for lizard. I'm a mod on another forum, and I would have just deleted those posts.

the joke is that if you try to type in all caps, the forum automatically makes your post come out with the first letter of each word being caps.

Wow, I didn't know that. Since I live in an Asian country and see many kinds of typing aids for people trying to use English, I really thought it was something like that. Oh, well. I guess it is an intentional attempt at annoyance.
