RED ALERT! B1G1 Working on Blu-Rays!

Ok, OK, Need to catch my breath here.... just stumbled on an amazing scenario. Everyone should have a B1G1 banner on the site today right? Well that stacks with the active free shipping codes (I think I used 802640 or maybe 805640). PLUS the B1G1 is working on Blu-Rays!!! PLUS dramas are 10% off!!! PLUS you get triple funcash on pre-orders!!! Look at this ridiculous deal I just got:

Dark City Blu-Ray $21.71
L.A. Confidential Blu-Ray $19.54
Transformers Blu-Ray $29.96
Risky Business Blu-Ray $21.71
The Italian Job Blu-Ray $22.46
Sweeny Todd: Blu-Ray $26.97
Batman Begins Blu-Ray Free
V For Vendetta Blu-Ray Free
Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle Blu-Ray Free
The Mummy Blu-Ray Free
The Mummy Returns Blu-Ray Free
Top Gun Blu-Ray Free

Total: $142.35
Funcash: $28

You can also get the slim pickin's of what's left of HD DVD titles with this offer. The HD DVD titles are already half off and you can combine it with the BOGO. I just ordered I Am Legend and Atonement for $19.98 shipped.

What's going on? I'm in my columbia house account (not CH), and it keeps saying "The Promotion Code 805640 is not valid."

I am putting the code into the box in the lower right corner of the Shopping Cart page, where it says, "Enter Promotion Code" and has a box.

When I do update, I get the above message on the top of the page, and can't advance until I delete the code.

I have tried it with 802640 and 805640 and 809640.

Suggestions?

I tried it with Close Encounters & Patton (neither of which are preorders), and while the BOGO showed up, I can't get the free ship. I haven't been using ColHouse that much since the site change... do I have to sign up for anything?

I also tried it in my columbia house t.v. account to no avail. Hmmm...

Thanks, these work to get more expensive Standard titles as the freebie as well (grabbed Transformers HD and got Golden Compass 2 disc for 19.95)

Say I buy 5 blu rays (and get 5 free)...does that count toward my 5 full price dvd's that I have to buy over the two year span?

I like how Close Encounters counts as a freebie.

And by the way, did I mention OMG?

Ah, great. The way it used to be done. I thought they had a different system. Thank you. I'll go try it.

It worked! Thanks for the help.

Last question: I need to have one non-preorder for every pre-order in order for the BOGO to apply, correct?

Pre-orders that come out next week may count as the free selection. See my order above with Beowulf.

Indeed. Dark City counts as the freebie with L.A. Confidential. You can get this pair for just $19.54.

Yes. The paid part of a BOGO(assuming that it's over $19.95) counts as one towards fulfillment.

Wow, Speed Racer is up for pre-order as well. Also, thanks for the heads up OP! You just saved me a shitload of money.

Yeah but I figured that would get that title to be FREE since Men In Black was then the more expensive title. Not that I'm complaining!
