In my VOD library, I know have Breaking Bad Season 3 both SD and HD versions.

I also now have a $25 balance in my VOD credit. EDIT: I just checked again, it correctly reflects the $5 balance I would expect since they took $10 off.

1) Why didn't they use all $15 credit, rather than just $10?

2) Why did I get both the SD and HD versions?

Not sure why they didn't use all $15 credit, you should call or email them.

As for your second question, I bought Castle S1 in HD with some stored up VOD credit I had, and when I went to look in my library I had both the SD and HD versions as well. Maybe that's just what they do when you buy the HD versions.

So if I spend $4.99, I'm guessing it won't count, huh?

EDIT: never mind. I searched for items that cost $5 exactly and came up with something.

Total cost of Roku during Thanksgiving sale $73.51.
Total cost of Roku this time is $64.86. Pretty cool since I used their own $5 credit from buying it the first time to save $20 this time.
