Fulfillments DUE :((

I have 4 fulfillments due on my TV Club account for tomorrow and due to financial matters I will be unable to comply.

I assume I will be receiving a "Billed on Contract" invoice thru snail mail. My billing method (CC on file) is no longer valid since the card expired some time ago.

Anyway I could reduce this by 2 within the next week? Exactly how strict are they on the DUE dates?

I have other CH accounts that remain in good standing.

4 fulfillments?!? Wow, you got shafted on that sign up offer, my friend.

Sorry, I don't have any answers for you, except maybe try to order 2 now, and take within 30 days to pay it. That might give you a little leeway before they send you the fulfillment notice, and then order the other 2 and pay those within 30 days. You might be able to stretch this all to around 60 days to complete pay it and still not be "late". I really have no idea though

You've been around long enough, I thought you knew what you were doin'?

Lesson to others:
Don't let this happen to you! You should never have an account around for so long that you reach the fulfillment deadline. There are tons of deals to be had along the way.
And don't get shafted on the sign up offer either. Bummer.

Thanks, basaro!

I'm just trying to avoid paying $80 + shipping for 4 DVDs. Perhaps with a B1G1 I could lessen the damage by attaching a couple of Feb. or Mar. pre-orders. I wonder if they would count those.

This is an account from 2 years ago and I just let it lapse while at the same time cycling thru other accounts. Oops!

Use a B1G1 code with free shipping, I believe there is one active right now. When you put two items in your cart 1 being a pre-order and the other isn't the pre-order counts towards your commitment and is the one that you pay for. Not sure if this will work if you add 8dvds but if you need to make four orders. If they make a fuss about you not fulfilling your account you can tell them that you have made your order that will fulfill your account. Not sure if this will work but you can try.

other suggestions:
put it on a credit card that'll buy you some time then sell the dvds on ebay. Be sure to use a B1G1 with free shipping.
Donate plasma
Donate blood
find pop cans (if you live in a state that requires a deposit on cans and bottles)

I'm giving it a try with 4 separate orders. (B1G1 w/ Free Shipping code)

FREE Selections: (all 2-disc editions)
Spider-Man 3
Harry Potter & the Order of the Phoenix

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, Anniversary Edition (twice)
Night at the Museum, 2-Disc
Across the Universe

I changed my billing to a PayPal debit which receives funds whenever I sell items on eBay. This may work out after all.
