How does the auto-cancellation work with BOGO orders? I wouldn't want them canceling one of the items and charge me full price for the other--as I never would have ordered just one item for the price. A bunch of the items I ordered are now back ordered.

If the items don't come back in stock within 30 days, it should work in your favor. If it's a paid item, you'll get a refund credit for it (and still usually get the freebie for free). If it's the freebie, you should be able to get a replacement for free. You'll probably have to get a CSR on the phone, but since this was such a widespread promotion (not an obscure code like some of the other hassles we've encountered) you should have no problem with it.

But usually most titles come back in stock fairly quickly, so the only issue is the shipment delay.

Got my American Gangster from this deal today (just floating around in a big box, too ). Invoice was $0.00, so just waiting on Atonement I guess before they bill me. Good deal.

Yeah, what the hell is with the giant boxes they're using? I got American Gangster HD yesterday in a big box and Michael Clayton BD in a big box today. They could at least throw in some packing peanuts or something.

I guess at these prices they can't afford packing material. At least mine wasn't too beat up and the disc was secure.

^This business of just shipping DVDs loose in a big box is SOP for Columbia House. If a DVD is damaged they are good about replacing it. I got a big box with just two discs in it yesterday. One was still intact, the other, an HD DVD combo, was a floater. But it was undamaged, not a mark on it. (I was amazed; I've had BD floaters arrive unscratched, but not an HD DVD before.) So, I lucked out, no fussing with a return.

Nope! BD is easier to scratch than HD-DVD...

FYI, CH lowered the prices on many HD-DVD's to $14.96 (probably due to Universal's price cut). So if another B1G1F code comes around that is valid on HD, jump all over it! All of the Bourne movies are included...

Yes, BDs do have a scratch resistant coating because the data layer is so close to the surface that a scratch will destroy the disc (they can't be refinished, like DVD or HD DVD). But they aren't invulnerable.

HD DVDs can be scratched as easily as regular DVDs but because the data pits are so close together they are more affected by scratches than regular DVDs.

Had to try and see if ordering Bee Movie HD-DVD on Feb 29th would give any free ones like Dreamgirls and Disturbia did, but today I saw on the main page in my account it said I had preordered Sweeney Todd!?! In my order history it still says Bee Movie though.

Have they charged your credit card anything? I have a similar order from 2-29, it still shows as "awaiting credit approval" on a card that has been used dozens of times there.

It also said in mine that I had pre-ordered Sweeney Todd when I have done no such thing. Also, I am pissed off right now. I called them two days ago and explained that Bee Movie was a free selection I had chosen and now it had been cancelled. I asked the CSR if I was able to select another title in its place and he said that it would be no problem so I asked for 30 Days of Night. He said that he would redo the order and replace Bee Movie with this one and I would be charged for Dewey Cox only. Now today I check my account and not only do I have the original order with Dewey Cox for full price and Bee Movie, which I will never get, for free, but I now have another order for 30 Days of Night at full price plus another 2.99 for shipping. Can't they ever do anything right? I asked the guy more than once if this was going to go through and he reassured me that the original order would be revised. Now I have to go through the hassle of calling them again and hoping that they can fix this shit. I'm getting fed up with this crap as this is not the first time I have had a problem with an order and had it incompetently dealt with.

I've noticed for awhile on the main page that it sometimes says I preordered something I haven't. I don't know why but it never means anything so I just ignore it.

Another one of the peculiarities at CH. Just be patient and all will be OK. Patience isn't just a virtue, it's a necessity when dealing with CH.
