Blade Runner orders?

I read in the TALK forum that Amazon had limited copies and some orders were being delayed. Has anyone ordered their Blade Runner briefcase (or any version) from Columbia House and received a shipping email? I logged into my account and my order is still listed as pre-order.

I went to Best Buy and picked one up last night. My order status changed from pre-order to pending. I did send them an email trying to cancel, but my guess by the time the get around to reading it, it may already ship. Which I guess I can just write return to sender and get it right back to them.

I've tried via phone and email to cancel my briefcase order. The phone person said she would put the request in and the email response said the order was canceled. Its still showing on the website though. I may call again or send another email.

Seems like CH is especially slow during the holidays. I ordered Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix on the 4th and it finally shipped on Monday. I preordered a lot of the 12/18 titles too (Simpsons, Stardust, Braveheart, Hatchet, Halloween) and none of them have shipped yet as well.

My online CSR told me that I had outstanding charges, but I don't. I'm getting pretty miffed about this, I'm going to have to call them today.

Received this email today:
"Unfortunately, the following titles you ordered are temporarily out of stock. A new supply is expected shortly, and your order will be shipped as soon as we receive stock - but not later than 01/18/2008."

ordered the suitcase with funcash, but told it was out of stock even though it's still listed on the site.... do they limit the number available for funcash purchases? if so, they're holding $20 of my funcash indefinitely until they cancel the order (after the funcash expires on 12/31, prolly)... I guess I'll call them to see if they have one to send me.

What's the latest on this? Has anyone heard anything since what NoirFan posted? I just ordered it tonight with the free shipping code to fulfill an account. I'm really hoping I didn't drag my feet too long and miss out on this set.

I ordered mine using Funcash the exact day it was released (before dawn), using Expedited shipping. Got it fine a week later.

I was thinking of ordering the 2 disc "Final Cut" edition of Blade Runner from CH. Is CH delaying shipment on that one as well, or have any members received this version in a timely fashion?
