They took Bee Movie HD out of their system. Their system still has you down for Bee Movie, but the selection # is not valid. Right above the preorder section, it says when your last order shipped, and also says "Based on what you ordered, you might like..." Then it will list a title. That title will also be in your preorder list, although you have not ordered it. It's a glitch

Same here. I wonder what happens next? I had Bee Movie paired up with I Am Legend. Unfortunately for me, Bee Movie was the "free" title on my BOGO deal.

How did you do that? I thought you couldn't get preorders as free titles?

^Pre-orders can often be selected as freebies if they are within a couple of weeks of release. It isn't Columbia House policy (which makes things "interesting" if one has to contact CSR about a mistake) but that's the way it works on their system.

Me too. I had a feeling they wouldn't be able to fulfill this one. But I spose if Bee Movie had been the pay title, the glitch could work in your favor by keeping the freebie...

I ordered Bee Movie as the pay title in a Buy 2 Get 2 Free order, anticipating it wouldn't be fulfilled, and now my account shows one of my previously free titles with a price next to it. Assassination of Jesse James Blu-Ray was out of stock and that put a wrench into things. I thought it would ship out as free before Bee Movie's release date. Now I have a situation that won't be fun to take care of.

EDIT: Scratch that. It looks like I got Buy 1 Get 2 Free with the Bee Movie cancellation.

I had ordered Bee Movie HD with 30 days of night blu-ray. Bee movie dropped off and I just received 30 days at no charge.

I ordered Beowulf with Atonement. Beowulf had been pending forever, I was thinking maybe they were just going to ship it with Atonement, but now I see Beowulf listed as a return as of 3/18/08 with a credit of $0.00. Of course, it was never shipped, I've been checking the website and it never got to the shipped part.

This now means I have to refuse 2 packages of Atonement. The first one, I told them to cancel the order 3 weeks ago because Bee Movie was going to be canceled and that was the freebie.

I don't even see Beowulf on the site anymore.

Atonement is still in pending status on my account, and Beowulf after it had been awaiting stock for a week, has shipped already.

Well that's lame. The HD DVD is out, so not sure what their problem is.

If they don't send it them I guess my American Gangster I already got is free. I might just go buy Atonement somewhere else and return the CH one if it ever comes.

Same problem as usual, I would think. They didn't get enough initial stock (or it was delayed for whatever reason) to cover the number of pre-orders. You shouldn't trust CH with new releases if you really want a certain title close to its street date.

I might just go buy Atonement somewhere else and return the CH one if it ever comes.
What I might do is send back a porn DVD by mistake, and then yell "BRIONYYYY!!!" after the mail man leaves with it.

Got my Atonement yesterday! Never even got a shipping email so it was a nice surprise. Of course now I have to pay them.

$15 shipped each for American Gangster and Atonement was a pretty good deal.
