Good deal?

I was looking through my CH newsletter and it looks like they are offering free shipping, -- DVD's for half price after purchasing one at regular price, -- and a 5th DVD free.

Does this look like it's worth it? I was planning on picking up Transformers at Walmart anyway, for probably $20-$25. so I figure the other 4 dvd's are costing me about $30 bucks. Also, the same package at Amazon worked out to around $111.xx

Can I do better?

Planet Terror Extended and Unrated Special Edition -- $24.95
Casino Royale Special Edition -- $9.98
1408 Collector's Edition -- $9.98
A Christmas Story 20th Anniversary Special Edition -- Free
Transformers Special Edition -- $9.98

Subtotal
$54.89

it's just too bad pre-order films don't quality for 1/2 price

^^^^^^ What GenX said!

In your case, using code 802335 would knock the price down to 49.90

It would go down to 39.90 if you substituted 2 of the '19.95 Boxed Sets' for 2 of your titles.

Yes there are better deals. Read the FIRST post of the Columbia House Sale Offer Codes, Part III forum. This has lots of very good information on using and maximizing codes as well as answers for some often repeated questions. Once you've done that, jump to the last page for the latest sale codes courtesy of thejester. This thread is updated very regularly by thejester and others with great lists of working codes. It might also help you to read the last 2-3 pages or so of posts in this forum to get a few ideas on how different people are milking these codes.
