DVD-Empire is offering free shipping if you order 3 or more DVD titles...including DVD-A.

Now, if you order 1 DVD-A disc, they throw in a free sampler DVD-A disc. You now have 2 titles and only need to purchase one more for the free shipping.

At least that's how it worked when I checked out.

Same day shipping, right? If they've got a good price and I'm willing to wait, it's alright.

I found out that DVDEmpire's revision to its free shipping policy has also created some new problems. When I checked on an open order yesterday I discovered that they added shipping charges. There were four DVDs in that order but I noticed two of them were listed not eligible for free shipping. Seems DVDEmpire added new restrictions to their free shipping policy making some of the box sets not eligible. Didn't matter that they were eligible when I placed the order, and they didn't even have the courtesy to notify me that the price of my order was changed or shipping was added to the total.

However, I did find a way to get around this problem and still get free shipping on items listed as not eligible. I found out if you order three items that are eligible for free shipping and order an item that is not will still get free shipping on the entire order. My advice is to be careful what you order and frequently check all open orders before they ship.

Yeah, it looks like the dinged me for shipping anyways...$2.25 for Sinatra at the Sands, Identity, and the free sampler.

Ah well, no big deal..

What's this "FREE SAMPLER" dealie @ Empire?

I, too, like Shawn C. above, ordered the "Sinatra @ The Sands" DVD-A; but I had no "Sampler" disc attached to my order. Does it show up automatically in your order if you're eligible?

Or....Has the Sampler Offer expired (as of 09/30)?
