    I usually hesitate on something like this, but I decided to live large. I'm in!

    Take Me Out To The Ballgame

    I found the page Gabriel_Lam posted. Looks for real.

    I figured out the red-top/blue-top on my own. I had already ordered from the red site yesterday morning when I signed my wife up via the blue site. I noticed that my wife got an email confirmation, whereas I did not so I re-signed myself up via the blue site and got a confirmation.

    Via the red site I got that same java-script error. Near the end of the transaction it brought up the email referral screen, but it never gave me the opportunity to pick a password. The blue site asked me to pick a password both times.

    Did anyone get any sort of confirmation signing up via the red site?

    Btw, I got: Die Hard 2, Die Hard 3, Any Given Sunday (director's), Rushmore, 12 Monkeys DTS; Edward Scissorhands, L.A. Confidential, Jerry Maguire, 9 1/2 weeks (director's, Meow!), The Princess Bride.

    This is a great way to get those movies you've wanted to own, but not wanted to pay $15-ish for. My "wants" trade list has shrunk considerably. I will keep my fingers crossed that it all goes through!

    Is anybody a current member? Why I ask is because when I was a member of their CD club, they would do offers like "Buy 1 cd at full price, get the next 3 at 50% off."

    Do they do that with their DVD club?

    Here is the specific language that gives me some cause for concern:

    If Columbia House honors this code for everyone so far, I think we just killed the goose that lays the golden eggs.I have seen this code all over the internet hit squad deal sites this week.

    Anyone get a confirmation of shipment yet? I received the first confirmation, but nothing since Friday. I suspect this one will fall through for all of us.

    I just got a welcome email. When I registered on the site, I checked the "My Account" page for details. Lo and behold, I have indeed fulfilled my purchase obligations. Some code programmer just got fired!

    Doug - How did setup a login account on their website without an account number?

    The welcome email contained my account number which facilitated setting up my online account.

    Interesting. All I received was a "confirmation" email that listed my selections and let me know that I'd be receiving a "welcome package" as soon as my application was processed and approved.

    This is a little worrysome (if you can call it that). I tried to log in this morning and I got this message:

    Bob-N,

    I tried logging in yesterday before the welcome e-mail arrived and got the same message. You could be right that CH is mulling things over, but I would hope they would honor this mistake for everyone that signed up.

    Once you receive your confirmation email, log into your account at the CH website. Click on the "Account Info" bar, and it should say that you have fulfilled your membership requirements [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I have signed up and cancelled many times. One thing that was different this time was the fact that I had to actually pay BEFORE receiving the DVD's, by giving a credit card number. This was never required using the other codes. I think that is actually a good sign.

    Now all I need to do is keep checking to see if my card has been charged!

    I would not worry about this. I have heard that this is a legitimate limated time Columbia House offer and not a pricing error.
