So, I picked up 2 movies, figured I would grab 2 Hancock peeks to go along with them both and use them for replacement cases. The first one rang up free, but the second one did not as it's one free per movie. I asked how much and he said it's a penny without purchase. This is like the good ole days of the FOX Promos on DVD where they were .01 for the demo.

Just thought I'd throw that out for those looking for a deal on replacement cases.

I also picked up 2 Hancock sneak preview Blu-ray discs for .01 with a purchase of a any Sony/Paramount titles of course.

The Hancock sneak peak preview is definitely better(PQ) than the previews/trailers I've seen in the theaters.

Also, they were out of stock on the last CD (but charged me up-front for it anyways). After two months I remembered that I still hadn't received it from them. I had to contact them to find out what was going on. It turns out that the CD was now out of print and that they didn't expect to get any more copies. I had to ask them for a refund (remember, they already charged me for it even though they weren't going to be able to deliver it).

Moral of the story--if one of the discs you ordered is OOS, keep an eye on them to make sure they eventually send you a copy (or give you a refund).

Any issues with the refund?

"Blade Runner" 5-disc BD for $12?!?!?!?! That's insane, I'm ordering it and I didn't even like the movie much. It doesn't even say "On Sale" unlike some of the others.

Also "300" for $11.86. Just need to find another I want to get free shipping.

Once I contacted them about it? No. It would've been nice had I received some sort of notification from them saying the CD was OOP, though.

I am interested in The Lives of Others (one of the better movies I have ever seen). I went to to double check this price as it seems too good to be true. If you do a search for the movies you will get two Blu-ray hits. The one you list and one for $26. The $26 movie has the Blu-ray logo on the top and the one you list below does not. I am thinking it's a mistake. Tried to call them but they aren't open yet. You may want to check it out.
