DVDSoon - free shipping?

Hi

Can anyone confirm that the upgrade for free purolator international shipping used to be CAD$200.00?

They've now increased it to CAD$225.00!

When I placed my order on August 13, (which I'm still waiting to have shipped) I'm sure it was $200.00 because I bought a couple of titles I didn't really need to get over the threshold.

Thanks
Mark

Yes, but they should honour it. I've got a couple of $150 free shipping orders that they haven't tried to recoup shipping on.

Same happend to me, they sent it by canada post airmail, ( shipping still free of charge)not purolator. Nor did they inform me of this. I suppose you delete the order and order +225 if purolator is important to you

I reckon they deliberately procrastinate over shipping your order hoping that you'll cancel or select part shipping so that they don't have to honour the free purolator shipping.

What an outfit!

This was my first and last order with them

I guess I should have learnt by now that there's no such thing as a free lunch.

I have accepted that their cs sucks, their prices is very good and where else do one get free int express delivery. You could credit your order and put in a new with an amount of +225

I ordered Monsters, Inc. a few weeks before release @ ~13.90 USD, + Shipping. It came on Saturday (9/14).

So far I've been satisfied with their prices and service... but YMMV I guess. I haven't been in direct contact with their CS either.

Update.

I decided to go for partial shipping and low and behold my first two on hand titles shipped yesterday and the back ordered two titles, previously "on order, no date available" shipped the next day.

So much for free purolater shipping!
