Re: Columbia House Sale Offer Codes, Part VI

^ Sets never qualify for the free selection. Unless it's a little different in the TV club, but I think it's the same as the regular club.

EDIT: 4 mins too slow, bigjim beat me to it.

Re: Columbia House Sale Offer Codes, Part VI

^Generally anything with 3 or more disks (there are a couple of exceptions - mainly with movies) and *most* TVonDVD selections with 2 or more disks. If you're not sure, use a B1G1 code to test. If the 2nd title is not "free" then either the qualifier isn't of a high enough dollar (unlikely as long as 1 selection is $19.95 or higher) value *or* the 2nd selection is considered a set.

Re: Columbia House Sale Offer Codes, Part VI

Hi everyone, thanks for all the great codes! This latest BOGO enrollment glitch was big, so I really appreciate it!

I fulfilled a 6 for .49 + 2 at 9.95 (thanks FrehlyCat) account from which CH had already hooked me up with an additional freebie (including free shipping) for an error on their end by picking up a BD + free DVD...that brought my total discs to 11 and my total dollar amount to $51.67, bringing the cost of each disc to $4.67. Shouldn't have been suckered into that additional $9.95 disc though! But I made up for it with another account I just fulfilled:

6 for .49 + 1 at 9.95. Then with the BOGO I picked up a 5-disc set (Dirty Harry Collection at 20.97) and free dvd. That brought my total discs to 13 and total cost was only $43.84, so each disc is only $3.37!

A little dollar cost averaging brings the total on both accounts to $3.98 per disc, including one BD. That's not too shabby!

How many accounts do they let you have at one address since they switched over things this past Jan?

Good question. I only had one, but opened another when those enrollment codes were posted...then decided to roll the dice one more time because of that BOGO. I can't imagine that going on forever, but...

Re: Columbia House Sale Offer Codes, Part VI

I think it's the same as before... 2 accounts per club.
That means you can have 2 TV accounts, and 2 DVD accounts.
I currently have 2/1 respectively.

I'm interested now to know what would've happened if I hadn't canceled the 2nd account that I'd recently fulfilled. I called to cancel and the 3rd account happened to switch from provisional to an active account within a few hours.

Probably nothing. I've had 3 active accounts in the past without incident.

How's that for passive aggressive? :P

It's working on my accounts. I should note that these are TV Club accounts, both fulfilled and unfulfilled.

Hmmmm, that's strange. Mine is a fulfilled TV Club account. Maybe they just don't like me.

I used the bogo coupon, got North by Northwest Blu Ray(still at 40%off) and got 8 1/2 dvd for free and it fulfilled my membership requirement. I am one happy camper.

Just to let you know if you want to call up and change it, 8 1/2 has been out on blu-ray elsewhere.

Re: Columbia House Sale Offer Codes, Part VI

you had to buy a dvd in march of over $19.99+ to get a free one in april
to get the free one in april you had to buy another at $19.99+ in april

$19.00 + $19.00 + $8.00 shipping = $46.00
divided by 3
= $15.33 minimum per movie (it's more if your choices are above $19.99)

right now with the 40% off, most of the blu-rays are below $19.99, so they don't qualify for the march or april primary purchase

I don't find that a good deal
