There's an entire sub-forum here dedicated to Columbia House and similar DVD mail-order clubs.

http://forum.dvdtalk.com/forumdisplay.php?forumid=13

Although I'm not certain of what enrollment offer you signed up with, there's usually an agreement to purchase more later and you need to create an online account where you'd go to decline automatic shipments. It's all in the fine print.

CH is a club, you joined. Sounds like you didn't respond to your Directors Selections...

1) Read the Clubs forum (where this really belongs).

2) Ask questions.

3) Don't join CH without doing 1).

You'll need to fulfill your membership obligation by buying the amount of DVDs that you agreed to buy when signing up.

edit - Yeah, what Xbox said.

It's not even "fine print." It's the contract itself. It's like a newspaper article: there's a headline "Get 6 DVDs for 49 cents Each!" and then there's the article itself, which immediately explains the details. Columbia House makes no secret about the system, and spells it out extremely clearly.

So "confusing."

Don't open the ones you didn't buy and write return to sender on them. I've done this in the past and it usually works. They'll credit your account in several weeks. Then make sure you respond to the director selections going forward.

I havn't open any of the dvd's because i feared something like this would happen.
Just some friendly advice - maybe you should stop signing up if you are having such trouble with the club.
