BOGO on All HD DVDs

CH is clearing out all of their HD DVDs with a BOGO. This includes box sets such as Heroes. Use code 801888 to receive free shipping.


EDIT: I just checked and you cannot take a box set, such as Heroes, as a freebie.

Selection has dwindled quite a bit. Having a hard time finding movies that I want, but might end up picking Casino and Children of Men.

Thanks. Couldn't resist. Double dipped on Serenity and Mummy Returns for $14.96 with one of the free shipping codes. Couldn't pull the trigger on other titles. Well, not yet, anyway.....

Definitely not much of a selection, but picked up Casino and Inside Man for $15 and I Am Legend and Pan's Labyrith for $27. Had considered picking up PL as part of the Best Buy BR sale, but this is a better deal (imo).

Most of the better stuff on HD-DVD I already have, plus the pickings are kind-of slim. All the "cheap" titles that I would want I already own too. I actually just opened a new account hoping to capitalize on the Blu sale... one day too late . Had to settle for the HD-DVD sale instead.

Stardust......$29.96
Atonement....FREE

Beowulf.................$29.96
Superman Returns....FREE

Bourne Ultimatum...$20.21
Good Shephard.......FREE

Looks like Casino is out of stock. Says they should be receiving more stock soon, but if it's a clearance sale, would they really be getting any more hd's in?

You'd think some of the prices would drop a little lower too for clearance. I bought Serenity and the 3 Bourne films for $38.60 total. <$10 a title which is not bad and I don't think any of these are announced in BD yet.

Ya but when you use the "deal" to fulfill an account, the prices per movie come out REALLY cheap. If they were true "clearance prices" then when used to fulfill, they'd be practically free. As much as we'd all LOVE that to happen, let's keep it real...

You're right, I did get one fulfillment title out of it. Lately, it's been pretty easy to fulfill accounts.

I ordered The Mummy and The Mummy Returns yesterday, just got a awaiting stock on The Mummy (so I know I wont get it), but when I sign into my account it just says awaiting stock on The Mummy, with The Mummy Returns no where in my order info. Oh well didn't really need them.

Using in conjunction with a B1G1 code, you also get a free dvd, but have to pay a shipping charge. Still, $28.68 shipped for Knocked Up HD, Blazing Saddles HD, and Untracable. Moviestop pays $12 for Untracable, so thats $16.68 for two hd-dvds.

Casino has disappeared. I emailed customer service to ask if they would be getting in more stock, if not I want to replace Casino with Breach. Other than that, not much left to choose from.

I wonder what hapens if the free one is not in stock. Will they cancel the order or only send you the one you have to pay for at full price?

I just received an email saying that Casino is no longer available so they are going to give Breach as a replacement. Just email them and ask them to replace the out of stock movie with one available..

Edit: just checked my account again, and I'm being charged for Breach as well as shipping. Emailing them now to correct this, and now Breach is awaiting stock. Yeesh.

I'm not too big on the idea that they're replacing a title with one of their choosing if something is out of stock...

Oh - I logged into my account and Casino was taken off my order and I've been charged $14.96 for Inside Man, but I haven't received an email, other than it was OOS and they would work to fulfill the order.

I got shipping confirmation on Face/Off and Pan's Labyrinth and the second and third Bourne movies. I also had orders placed for the Mummy, Mummy Returns and Serenity but they're awaiting stock (cancelled) but it was a struggle getting them to replace Mummy Returns with Serenity on the phone. I even called back and the second rep was even more rude than the first.

Have you tried emailing them jlm? They responded to my email in 2 days and replaced my selection, unfortunately my replacement is out of stock as well.

I ordered 10 of the $14.96 titles. I just checked my order history and have only 4 titles on it now which I received an email fCH that they have shipped. I also got an email that Apollo 13 and Backdraft are out of stock. Both the Mummy movies, Casino, Bourne supremacy, and Carlito's Way are no longer listed in my order history.

The problem is 3 of the titles they shipped are the ones I'm paying for and only one is a free title. If they don't ship anything else this makes it a Buy 3 get 1 free which isn't what I agreed to.

I placed a second order for 2 $20 titles and Untracable as the free title. They are all listed as awaiting stock. If they just send me untracable which should be free will they charge me for this title?

I was going to buy a few more but now I won't. This will probably be more of a headache than it's worth.

I only placed one HD order for 2 $14.95 titles - Apollo 13 -&- Fast and the Furious. As you said movieguru, Apollo 13 is "awaiting stock" (maybe cancelled?). Fortunately for me, that was my charged title. FatF was my freebie & is "pending". It's Bee all over again.

Argh, I was out of town and almost missed out on this deal. I ordered the only two non-Bourne $14.96 titles I found: Dune & Fast and the Furious. I already own the Bournes, otherwise those would be no-brainer purchases for $7.50 each...
