    Well, I finally got a GREAT deal on this set.... get this, $50.92 on Playcentric.com using code "PLAYSHIP88" (which gives $1 off + free 1st class shipping).
    GREAT DEAL for 7 DISCS + a bonus disc + 3D Glasses + a cool case [​IMG]
    Those who don't have it... jump on it! [​IMG]

    Playcentric has cancelled all orders and raised the price $11... without reason. [​IMG]

    Anyone had any luck with Playcentric?

    I ordered this yesterday. Today I checked the order status and found it to be "Cancelled and Refunded". Anyone else have this problem?

    They also raised the price for the set to $62.96. I guess the price was too good to be true.

    It does seem as if the price has gone up, however it's keying off an MSRP of $129.99. I thought this set had been reduced to MSRP 99.99?

    It was supposed to be lowered to $89.99 like 2 years ago,but it never did.Now it's supposed to be lowering to $109.99.
    It's a great set... well,aside from the obvious exclusion of Laserdisc extras and workprint footage from 4 and Freddy's Dead.... eh,anyway.
    Don't hesitate,buy it.[​IMG]

    Yeah I placed this order also and the status is "Cancelled and Refunded" also. I sent them an email asking what is going on. If they don't honor the price I'll tell them to forget about it and I'll tell them I'll never order from them again.

    I got the same message... I sent an angry email to Playcentic asking them to honor the price (and asking them if this is how they ALWAYS do business) and telling them how much business they just lost.
    This will definately be my last order with Playcentric [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    They did this all to make a measly $10 profit... do we all realize this?

    They won't.
    1) they only price match US retailers
    2) they price match the shipped price.

    I'm still looking for a deal on this one, Rob's was the magic number.

    Also everyone check your credit card accounts. They hit my card yesterday, cancelled the order but haven't credited it back yet. I'll give them 2 days before I start causing problems for them. They hit the card fast enough to get their money they should at least credit me just as fast.

    Oh and its an Amex card so at least I know if I have to have them take care of it they will.

    Esten, if they don't honor it... I am definately just going to price match with the price they have on there now (which is the lowest I have seen [​IMG] ).
    Just with DDD, who ships me about 10-15 DVDs per month and has NEVER given me a problem like this [​IMG]
    Like I said, I will NEVER do business with them EVER again, even if they do honor the price! I need these DVDs for Halloween [​IMG]

    Oh, and WHAT KIND OF BUSINESS has NO TELEPHONE NUMBER?
    Honestly? [​IMG]
    I just got the same email as you Mike... what a bunch of... well... I just know if I say what is on my mind it will lead to banning so I will just say [​IMG]
    I just sent in a price match to DDD for the $62 price quoted on the Playcentric site.

    Keep in mind that Playcentric is also Canadian.

    Wow, I got this Nightmare set about a month ago from Playcentric and I didn't have this problem. I got it from them shipped for 49.02 (3.50 off coupon).
    I buy quite a few dvd's from them. Though, I must be honest and say that they never switched price on me.
    I did have a problem where my item arrived damaged and they replaced it for free and refunded my shipping charge.
    On another note, they do not list a number on their invoices either, but they do have one from a post a read on DVDTALK.....

    try amazon.ca NIGHTMARE BOX SET
    They have it for aporox. $55 plus shipping, plus if you use the coupons found here you can drive the price down a few bucks.

    Yeah, I gave them that number over at DVDTalk... it is listed on your credit card statement if you ever ordered from them before.
