No free shipping options? No deal for me.

Gonna do some math, including shipping, and see what's what. Slow work day anyways.

Not worth it without free shipping.

CH can go straight to hell. This is the second B2G2F sale they've had where they made my account inactive. I was just on yesterday or maybe the day before. But, today I click the link on my email and get told that my account is inactive. Thanks for rubbing my nose in it CH.

I'm having the same trouble with both of my accounts. Perhaps this is a site-wide glitch.

Re: Buy 2 Blu-ray, DVDs Get 2 Free - Tuesday only

Hmmm, OK, thought it was just me. I was able to log in this morning because I check for new preorders every Tuesday. But then I just got the email about this B2G2 sale a few minutes ago and was unable to login, got the "Your account is in-active" message.

Anybody having any luck logging in?

Not to sound like a prick, but I'm glad I'm not the only one. Maybe they just need to fix it on their end and all will be well on our end.

It seems to be working again. With that said I would like to revise my first post and now say CH can go straight to hell. This is the second B*G*F sale this month to not allow a free shipping coupon. What can I say they just can't win with me.

Re: Buy 2 Blu-ray, DVDs Get 2 Free - Tuesday only

Got logged in now, but can't seem to add a 29.95 blu-ray as a freebie.

I added:

Watchmen blu 26.96 pre-order
Gran Torino blu 26.96
Crank 2 blu 29.96 pre-order
Slumdog Millionaire 29.96

....and Gran Torino is showing up as free but not Slumdog Millionaire.

Anybody able to get a 29.96 blu for free?

I don't think you can do it. This is a Buy 2 Get 2 Free sale, so the two highest price items are the ones you pay for and the other two (the lowest price ones) are free. This makes the sale actually worse than the BOGO last month. Here is hoping for some sort of free shipping along with this type of sale in the next few weeks.

I am going to pass as well, and wait for free shipping too. Shipping for me would have been $9.00.

Re: Buy 2 Blu-ray, DVDs Get 2 Free - Tuesday only

Debating whether to pull the trigger on this.
Most of these titles, either used + shipping, or new + tax...wouldn't be this cheap from my online research.
Avg shipped is 15.40. (w/o shipping, avg is 13.29)
I don't pay tax in WA State. What if this is as good as it gets w/r/t CH & Blus in the future...?

Slumdog
Gran Torino
Edward Scissorhands
Patton
Watchmen (pre-order)
Master and Commander
Dr. Strangelove
Ghostbusters

Re: Buy 2 Blu-ray, DVDs Get 2 Free - Tuesday only

I ended up pulling the trigger on this, literally at 8:59 PST, banner changed after I confirmed
...$15.40/blu, shipped. See above, 8 titles.

Just didn't feel like waiting, and I've gotten such good deals in the past at CH (34 blus at about $12/each)...
I'm happy.

Should that turn out to be the case, we can place our orders then. For now, some of us prefer to wait and hope for B1G1F and free shipping. But, compared to the prices elsewhere, this deal is still pretty good for those interested in buying four (or eight) titles at the same price.

Re: Buy 2 Blu-ray, DVDs Get 2 Free - Tuesday only

Yeah.. I pulled the trigger late yesterday as well. After doing some quick research, I determined that buying the 4 movies I wanted (Glory, Robin Hood: POT, Cool Hand Luke, Rundown) would cost considerably more than what Columbia House would charge, including shipping. No, it wasnt as good as a free shipping deal, but certainly wasnt bad enough to pass since I stayed generally near what I wanted to spend.
