    Has anyone else here been receiving free DVDs periodically from amazon.com? I have, and they are accompanied with a note that thanks me for being such a great reviewer at their website.

    The thing is, I'm only #1411 on their reviewer rankings with 411 helpful votes and probably no more than 30 reviews (some are in-depth, but most aren't). But now I plan on reviewing more to keep on their "mailing" list.

    Today I received in the mail a copy of The 2-Disc Sleeping Beauty Special Edition. This title has yet to be released, as far as I know. And about 3-4 months ago, I received a copy of Antwan Fisher, which hadn't then been released either.

    Gee whiz! That's great, Dane. [​IMG]

    Maybe it's the "helpful votes" count that determines these kind of giveaways (beats me?).

    Perhaps once you get to Dane's figure of 400+ "helpfuls", the DVD freebies start coming.

    I'm #1,757 at Amazon re. review rank, with a little under 400 helpfuls.

    Maybe I'll be in for a surprise some day, too. [​IMG] (I only hope it's not Van Sant's Psycho. [​IMG])

    Dane...Did Amazon give you any sort of choice as to your freebies? Or is it a complete surprise?

    And is there a trashy airport mystery novel that she hasn't read?

    Ya, I received the "SLEEPING BEAUTY" DVD several days ago. In the past, they've sent me the "SNOW WHITE" DVD set and the "ROGER RABBIT" DVD set. Since I'm not really a Disney buff and DEFINITELY not a Robert Zemeckis buff (if they ever READ any of my reviews on their site they would have KNOWN not to send me anything by Zemeckis), they all ended up on ebay. Must say I love the gesture, though, no matter what they send. Now, if they would only start sending out free Criterion's......
