King of Queens Complete Series $17.97?

I was looking at their Upcoming Releases section and it has it listed for pre-order at $17.97! Release date of 1/25/10. It showed a pic of the IPS truck that the complete series comes in. And if you got the "Pick Your Deal" e-mail that expires tomorrow night, you can get free shipping. Hopefully they'll honor it (it'll probably go up in price tomorrow). I got kinda the same deal with the Wizard of Oz set that came out recently. It was listed as $34.99 the day I ordered it, and $41.99 the next day. So get it while the gettin's good!

It's strange on the item page that it has it as a 27-disc set, yet with a runtime of only 4:34.

Don't forget to use:

807050 - b1 + 70% off DVDs + Free S&H on SETS (and DVDs/BRs)

$17.97 shipped (if it really does). Considering it's a pre-order I expect the orders at this price to be cancelled.

Saw this the other day and was gonna take a shot at it. The free shipping, however, doesn't appear to apply to the preordered box set (for what it's worth).

Shipping came up as free for me.

Gave it a shot as well and also got the free shipping. The original release date that CH has listed is that of the complete series box set. Not expecting to get it, but with CH, you just never know. Thanks for the info, erlong.

Couldn't get that code (7050) to work either - for free S&H on the set. Ended up using 9450 instead - which did work - don't know why the other wouldn't.

Re: King of Queens Complete Series $17.97?

Thanks.
This could end up being like the price glitch on The Pedro Almodovar Collection?

I got in an order with 7050. I had to remove and add a couple times before shipping came up free, just a little glitchy I guess.

At least I can use the $4 in funcash right away before the end of the year as I now have 62 to spend.

If you want to use that $4 in FC, you better use it quick. CH always gives me the FC on a pre-order when I first place the order. However, the FC usually disappears the following day and doesn't come back until that pre-order finally ships.

Funnily, that's pretty close to the runtime in days.

The status of my order changed to: "Scheduled To Ship"

I don't think there's anything left for you to try; It's been pulled. The item still shows up for me via search, but trying to access the item page yields failure to find a match.

Still currently working for me:

Search for "King of Queens"
Scroll down
Click "Add to Cart" where appropriate.

No need to go to the item page...

Re: King of Queens Complete Series $17.97?

I know I'm not crazy ... or stupid.

I finally copied "king of queens" from the post above and it showed up. Previously I got all the season sets with the search, but not the complete series. I even perused the "Upcoming Releases" and could not find it. What was strange is after I put it in my cart I clicked on the title link and it did not show up (got a blank page). So maybe something is strange -- at least on my comp.

Anyway, thanks OP!

Re: King of Queens Complete Series $17.97?

I couldn't get free shipping to work, but I went ahead and clicked order anyway.
It's now back on the site - but now priced 139.77, under the same selection number.
What does CH usually do in situations like this? They don't/can't retroactively change the price you were charged, do they?

Re: King of Queens Complete Series $17.97?

^ It can be difficult to know what CH will do in any situation. They're about as unpredictable as they come. It's always a good idea to save your order confirmation e-mail or screenshot of your order screen as proof should something come up later.
