B1G1 Blu-Ray & HD DVD at Columbia House

Columbia House DVD Club is running their first ever B1G1 on Blu-Ray and HD DVD. Could it possibly get any better than that? YES! Pre-orders are working as the free selection! Could it possibly get yet even better that that? YES! Use code 801888 for free shipping on 3!

Is there a way to browse HD DVDs by themselves?

Awesome! Thanks for posting this! I haven't bought a single thing from Columbia House since I upgraded to Blu-ray but might have to get in on a pre-order here.

This doesn't show up for me. Do I need to have bought my minimum purchases first?

^ No message shows up for me when I look in the code message box, but I tested it out anyway and it does give the second title free + free shipping. Amazing. I am bummed that the Juno Blu-ray is not up on the site yet for pre-order though (and probably won't be by the time this promotion ends). All they have up is the DVD for pre-order. I may use this to pre-order Golden Compass though...

Also, this is an unlimited code -- you can buy 2 and get 2 free and so and so forth. I just picked up 3:10 to Yuma and The Golden Compass for $29.96 shipped ($14.98 each). Wow. I love you, Columbia House! I'm glad I didn't cancel my memberships!

PS - I got this to work with free shipping by only ordering two titles. So I don't even think you would have to get 3 titles for the free ship.

QUick question:

If you join, can HI Def movies be the ones you buy to fulfill your purchase commitment?

^ Absolutely. But sometimes it can take a while to be accepted. Go by phone to increase your chances of acceptance before the promotion ends. Way faster turnaround time.

Not a very good selection, though. They don't carry any of the catalog titles I'm looking for.

Well it is Columbia House, so keep in mind, they will never have any Disney/Buena Vista/Miramax titles. Most of the other studios are fair game. Also, they were a little later to the party with adopting HDM (I wanna say just last summer they acquired their stock), so a lot of catalog stuff will not be there. Mostly popular catalog titles and new releases that have come along since last summer.

The advantage sale this has over the Amazon B1G1's is that CH puts ALL their titles in the deal. So stuff like 3:10 to Yuma that has never been on sale before is fair game finally!

This is huge. I've basically filled my pre-order needs for the next 3 months. Thanks OP!

Seeing as how I'm not enrolled, this sale is probably a little bit over my head.

Yeah, apparently for me too. Although I only found 79 Blu-Ray titles, and the Fox ones I wanted weren't there. So I don't feel too bad. Unless I can't search their site and failed to find the Fox titles.

^ Fox titles recently just came back to Columbia House. They went several years without them. So it's likely that the ones you want simply aren't there.

Meh... couldn't get B1G1 to work for 2 pre-orders, at least one of the titles had to be already available.

C'mon Hammer, you're making rookie mistakes.

This doesn't appear to work on ch.com.

Can anyone confirm?

I placed an order for two pre-orders without difficulty. You might want to shuffle the order in the cart and try again.

"Special" priced items, such as sets, won't work with this sale, FWIW.

Thanks OP. Was able to snag American Gangster HD and Michael Clayton BD for $30 shipped.

Are you kidding me? I thought it was understood that you can only do one pre-order and the other item has to be in stock. Did you by chance do a pre-order that comes out tomorrow?

This sale is not available at CH.com.

Four days ago Columbia House drastically changed the structure and pricing of the CH.com club. It went from a pretty good deal, at times, to pretty crappy. The BOGOF sale offer at CH.com in January was the first ever and, quite likely, the last.

Where exactly do you enter this code? I've looked everywhere on the final screen and have had no luck..
