Used 802528 so I could get an extra 10% off (which made up for s/h I had to pay):
Charles in Charge: The Complete Second Season $14.97
Fire and Ice 2-Disc Limited Edition Free
The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show: The Complete Series (Pre-Order) $16.17
Bee Movie Jerry's 2-Disc Edition (Pre-Order) Free
The Smurfs: Season One - Volume One $16.17
3:10 to Yuma Free

Discount -$4.71
Subtotal $42.60
Shipping & Processing $9.97 (Had to pay s/h for the 3 box sets)
Total $52.57

None of the above sets count towards your commitment but they usually don't give you a freebie either so I thought this was overall a good deal. Be sure to use codes in Sale Codes thread since they stack!

This B1G1 sale is a bit different from the usual ones. Usually, you have to buy 1 at 19.95 or higher. For this sale, that requirement is gone. So you could buy a 7.95 title and get another 7.95 title free, for example.

Glad there's a 10% off code again. It doesnt work on most titles under $19.95, prorders, or hd bluray titles though.

I really wish there was more stuff I wanted to get right now, but I did manage to get one order in this morning for Charles in Charge Season 2 and American Gangster for a little over $20.

Hope someone can tell me what's wrong here:
Trying to use B1G1 to fulfill TV Account; I'd like to get 4 of these.

Tootsie 25th (19.95 regular)
Battlestar Galactica Razor (22.95 sale price)
The Wiz 30th (19.95/14.95 special)
El Cid (24.95 regular price)


When I put in El Cid, Wiz, Tootsie and Battlestar, only Battlestar shows 'free'.
The Wiz is showing "19.95 off' in red, but, charging me $14.95.

So confused. My head hurts.

in my short 3 days as a member, I've found the website to be really anal when it comes to B1G1 free. For the orders I've placed, I've had to delete movies from my cart, and add them back in a certain order to get them to show up as free.

In your case, Battlestar and Tootsie should be free. And the wiz would show up as 19.95

So, I don't know if this is common knowledge or not, but if you put a set in your cart and then you put a more expense DVD in your cart, the more expense DVD will actually count as a freebie. For instance, I put Battlestar Galactica Season Two ($29.97) and The Red Shoes Criterion ($34.95) and The Red Shoes rang used as $0.00. Just thought some people would like to know.

I think the reason for this is that the original price of the set ($49.99) is higher than the original price of Red Shoes ($34.95)...?

Yes. How it works is the list price on Battlestar season 2 is $49.95 which will allow you to get a regular dvd with a list price up to that amount red Shoes list price is $39.95

Funny, it would let me order the SEs of "Bee Movie" and "Sweeny Todd", but not the SEs of "The Golden Compass" and "Sweeney Todd" (when I tried the last combo, they both showed up at regular club price).

Also, you wouldn't get BG as the freebie because it's a set.

You will get Bee Movie and Sweeney Todd to work together, because Bee Movie has a closer release date, so it will count as a freebie. Golden Compass and Sweeney Todd are both being released in April so you can't get them as freebies. You can't get Pre Order's free ever unless the release date is within a few weeks and sometimes not even then.

Yeah, it seemed to work with the clearence titles and the deal of the day title. There were a few $5.95 clearence titles that allowed you to get a $19.95 title free. The $11.97 sets allowed a $19.95 title fee too.

I noticed it very late last night. I just barely got an order out before midnight.
It always good to test all the B!G! codes against clearence and deall of the day titles because you never know when they will work. It took some effort to get them to work. You had to add the free title first then the other title. If you didn't it would not work correctly.
