800.COM......what happen

This is the site that got me started back in March 97 on DVD's.....I am very sad now. I have a SERIOUS problem with though. My wife gave me a $50 GC for Christmas and the experation date is tomorrow. I was going to order last week but couldn't find any movie I really wanted, so I waited. WRONG!!!!
I come to work yesterday only to read DVDTalk newsletter about 800 going out of business. DAMN IT!!!!

So what do I do now? Is any other company offering ot support coupons or GC? I am so disappointed....someone please give me some advise.

I would logon their site and buy something ASAP... it doesn't look like they stopped taking GCs or anything.. just buy something that shows in stock and not a pre-order. Even if you don't keep it (use as a gift or something maybe?)

Thats what I'd do... attempt to use it ASAP before it's too late.

Use it quickly on something IN STOCK. (And there isn't much in stock).

Yeah even if it's something you dont want... soemthing you can return to a local store or something maybe?

It's probably too late to dispute the charge with your CC, but you could try calling them and asking your options.

Closing this thread in favor of the Bad News about 800.com thread.
