Bluray free with funcash

I logged onto CH and went to recent BluRays. They listed the first 4 blu rays as free. I added them to my cart and they were free with funcash. With free shipping on pre orders them came up as completly free. I only ordered 2 of the 4 out of fear of a glitch.

Not sure which titles you are talking about, but when I go to Most Recent blu rays, everything has a price... I added Ironman to my cart, and tried to apply Funcash, but it says you cannot apply funcash to pre-orders. What are the 4 titles you saw as free?

the 2 I ordered were Poltergist and Fred Claus. Interview with a Vampire was another (don't remember the 4th). I looked at my account order history and it is still listing it as free.

I never had to apply my funcash to it, just by adding it to my cart it listed as free with funcash. I had $40 in funcash and after the free movies I still had $40.

When I log on to CH, I'll go to Bluray then click on A-Z and then change the sort by to most recent. I tried it again and it worked again.

If you just search for those 4 movies in blu ray it lists them as free.

Nice find, but none of those titles are tempting enough to risk dealing with unannounced charges and CH customer service.

Ah yes. Clicking on A-Z before going to Most Recent was the key... These pre-orders are so far out, I highly doubt we'll get em. But I spose it's worth a shot. I ordered only 2 as well...

Same here. Thank you for pointing this out originally, TABLOIDJUNKIES.

Me, too! Thx again for the post. Keeping my fingers crossed they don't get canceled, or even worse, we suddenly get charged full price...

I ordered all 4 of the original titles and received the same cancellation letter. But when I access the site and click on the order number, each of them is still there with "processed" status. I wonder what's going on?

Interesting. I never received a cancellation letter. But I also didn't order all 4 titles. I won't get my hopes up that it will slip through, but it would be a nice surprise...

I only ordered Poltergeist, thinking that ordering all 4 would really send up a flag. Apparently luck just wasn't on my side.

Nothing too abnormal about that. I have had orders canceled via phone before and they still show up as processed in the online order status.
