Has this ever happened to anyone?

I used 802265 - b1g1 + 50% off all DVDs a few days ago and got Disturbia (bluray), Fracture for free, and got Saved! for 3.98 to get free shipping. Over the weekend Disturbia disappeared from the order. So now they are sending me both Saved! and Fracture for 4.22. Has this ever happened to anyone?

Many times..."Disturbia" will reappear and you'll be charged correctly for the rest of the order.

Disturbia may not appear, as it is now OOP... due to Dreamworks going exclusive to HD-DVD

Yeah the order went to complete and still no Disturbia. So I ordered it again this time with the b1g1 free shipping. I got Disturbia and 1408 2 disc. Of course Disturbia disappeared again and now 1408 is just showing up as free. I have been get columbia house for a year and nothing like this has ever happened. I will wait a few days then I might just buy it on hd-dvd. If it all works out, I will have got three disc for 4.22. Fracture, Saved!!, and 1408.

like jon8282 said it's likely because it's OOP. i remember when CH carried the third man criterion but everyone knew they were OOP so people would order that along with their "free" selection and they'd end up getting their "free" selection without having to buy one at regular price.

I missed the part where you said this was Blu-Ray. What others said about this being discontinued and only being charged for the other items is correct from my experience. Nice find!

disturbia has dropped off the order, it is now listing only deathproof on the order, and it is still listed as free, however it has not been shipped and is still in pending status...

I gave this a shot as well. It looks like the order has duped. My original order still shows Disturbia and 1408, but a second pending order just shows 1408 for free. Being a columbia house n00b, is this normal?

I got a letter today that says Disturbia bluray is no longer available, but the rest of my order was processed. I got my first order yesterday. My second order was for 1408 collector's edition.

Not same category at all. "Disturbia" was never made. Those titles are just out of print. CH may continue listing/selling them until they run out.

Be careful what you encourage people to do.

I can't believe I missed this one. If I had a BOGO/FS code I'd try it right now.

You don't want a new release for a few bucks shipping? Use 801586.

I'll give it a shot. Just ordered it along with The Ruling Class Criterion. I'm tempted to try it on my other account too, but I don't want to push my luck.
