I wonder if your account has to be flagged in a certain way. Do you see the discount in the shopping cart, or do you have to walk through checkout?

Yeah, then it's definitely not working for me. I go to the final checkout screen and still see no changes to the order.

Now it's working. Very strange. I did both POTCs with Casino Royale. No luck. I tried a few other combinations that should work, and still no dice. Then I added X-Men, and it worked 4 for 3. Then I removed X-Men and 3 for 2 started working on titles that didn't work before.

It is odd, I've been trying to find a combination that includes Vacancy on BD and I couldn't find it. I added enough to get 4-3, then tried to rearrange some titles and lost it. Now the same titles that were working with Vacancy don't work at all.

I've been juggling titles for a while but I just picked up Mallrats/Shaun of the Dead/Eternal Sunshine for about $34 shipped with Amazon Prime. Awesome deal, I'm going to keep playing with this for a while and see what else pops out free.

The thread topic should be changed to include HD DVD, as it applies to both formats.
Makes more sense than starting two threads...

I got:

40 Year-Old Virgin HD-DVD
Meet The Parents HD-DVD

For $33.xx shipped. Pretty sweet. Now if I could find 2 titles to pair with 300, I would be set.

I can't get the 3 for 2 to work.

I've got:

Bourne Identity
Bourne Supremacy
Pitch Black

in my cart. I add Big Lebowski and the 4 for 3 works though, but not Eternal Sunshine.

Mixing and matching with BD didn't seem to work either. I dropped Casino Royale and Stargate into the mix to no avail.

Glad to see HD-DVD are working. After I posted it I thought I wonder if it works for HD-DVDs. Looks like it does.
