Misprice - Best of Hitchcock vol 1 only 13 bucks!

I went wandering by orderbox.com just to see how festering the body was after it had been left out in the sun. Much to my surprise, the company has changed its business model. Its more like a real retailer, with no crappy subscription fees.

Anyway, while checking out a couple of prices to see how they stack up against my other regular retailers, I found the 8 disc set of Hitchcock (with Psycho, Rope, Rear Window and so on) for only 13 bucks.

http://www.orderbox.com/www/prod.asp?vid=2159109

Damn them - the set I need, box set 2 is full price at 123 bucks. But for anyone looking to score set one - go to town! Here's hoping that O-box doesnt still suck. (But hey - what's a gamble at 13 bucks, huh?)

Good luck!

*EDIT* fixed URL to point to Hitch instead of Shreck.

WOW. Thanks! I ordered one and really hope it comes through. It just so happens I have yet to pick up any of those movies yet. This is actually my first order with them. Inventory was 15 when I placed an order for 1.

Btw, your link redirects me to the XBox game Shrek

Thank you - I went ahead and ordered a set - let's hope this comes through.

Though I have most of the films, I am really waiting for HITCHCOCK PRESENTS... - must be excellent!

I appreciate the heads up. But since you found the deal, you should have let yours ship before posting. The 10,000 orders that Orderbox will get in the next 24 hours will probably force them to cancel our orders. Here's hoping though!!!

Thanks....I just got in on this deal. They have an inventory number on their site saying 15 units in stock. Was it the same when everyone ordered?

I ordered one, too, what the heck. If they really only had 15 I kinda doubt I got in on time (even if they do honor the orders, which I seriously doubt).

Nice of you to share, thanks for the post!

Yup, 15 "In Stock". We'll see. This will be a big headache for these people. If it comes through, that'll be great; but somehow I seriously doubt it. This is the first time I've ordered from them. While I was putting in my account info, it looks like the order went through without ever hitting a "place order" button. That's wierd.

Just ordered at 7:09 and it still says 15 units...add in the "lurker factor" and it's probably over at this point.

Thanks for the post though!

Wow, OrderBox has really shaped up now. It seems as if all they're prices are just a little cheaper than BestPrices. I ended up ordering some anime that was in my cart at BP for while now at OB, along with the Hitchcock set. FYI, they have a decent price on the Slayers Box Set (Season 1) at $75.17. Not as good as when I got it at DVDExpress for $65, but still not bad. Hope the misprice comes through!

I'm in on this deal too!!! - thanks for the post and I guess we'll know within a couple of days if they are going to honor. Teriffic Post. It is showing Studio: Uni Dist. Corp (mca) with these movies (like it matters at this price):

"Shadow of a Doubt" (1943, 108 min.)
"Rope" (1948, 81 min.)
"Rear Window (Special Edition)" (1954, 115 min.)
"The Man Who Knew Too Much" (1956, 120 min.)
"Psycho (Special Edition)" (1960, 109 min.)
"Topaz" (1969, 143 min.)
"Family Plot" (1976, 121 min.)
"Alfred Hitchcock Presents #2" (102 min.), containing 4 of the 17 TV series episodes directed by Hitchcock: "Revenge," "Breakdown," "Wet Saturday" and "Mr. Blanchard's Secret"

Got screen prints (hard and soft) and order confirmation immediately - still 15 in stock.

When I went to the checkout my selections were gone

Edit:

That was really odd, I just received a confirmation for my order but when I hit checkout it was gone.

I ordered this as well, thanks Darth. I've got my fingers crossed and just hoping for the best. I went ahead with the 2 Day Shipping, so hopefully they'll process it quicker.

Sounds like a good deal, but be prepared to be disappointed.

I don't mean to rain on the parade, but when I ordered the Sopranos :S2, they changed the price 2 days before it shipped and asked me if I still wanted it at the corrected price, even though I had ordered it about 2 months before it came out!!

Good Luck, though!!

Overnight shipping is only like $10 so you might sneak it through before they catch it. Good deal, thanks Darth!

Just FYI It showed 15 in stock 2 hours ago and it still shows the same number, so their order system is funky, because it's probably sold out by now.

If someone gets in on this deal but does not post does that make them a lurker?

I thought the checkout procedure was a little odd -- no confirmation -- just added to "my invoices."

I'm not getting my hopes up, but I am keeping my fingers crossed that we get them.
