Jerry's none too bright. He's a famous troll around these parts. Best to
ignore any more responses from him.

Yup, surprise, surprise. Today I got one of the 5 DVDs I placed in the
two orders (looks like from the 6/14 order). And, it came from the
same place that Deep Discount DVD ships out of in Illinois.

Never got an email or anything. The enclosed invoice did not even
indicate how much I was charged... And it has an 800 number on it that
doesn't look like their website one....oh, but when I dialed it it was
for Critic's Choice Video. What the hell? I feel like I'm in the
f*cking Twilight Zone...

Anyway they're getting it back (as I've made other arrangements, plus,
it too was (slightly) damaged). Although I guess I'll wait for the
other four to show up first... so I don't waste too much return postage.

Now I understand why they upgraded their software....

Just a suggestion, but you might want to check out Deep Discount DVD.
I've had pretty good luck with them.

I've only ever ordered Criterions from DVDPlanet b/c they give 35%
off. Amazon gives about 25% off, i think. of course, shipping is
free and I'll actually GET the item. Hmm... maybe i'll switch to
amazon, too.

Why should you pay postage to return damaged merchandise? It's up to
them to get the merchandise to you undamaged.

Was I really so obscure? My point was that if they ship damaged
merchandise, you ought to get a credit from them for the cost of
shipping it back.

I would never do repeat business with a company that made me pay
extra shipping because they shipped bad product.

I got your point. And I'm happy life is so simple for you. Whatever.

From an earlier post:

"Image is moving DVDPlanet to a third-party fulfillment center, iServe,
in Chicago..."

So maybe they now both share the same third-party fulfullment center.

Follow-up to my earlier post: I received my pre-orders for 24 June in
the post today. They still do not appear as "shipped" on my account's
"Order Status" page.

My pre-order of _by Brakhage_ -- which came out 6/10/2003 and is listed
as "in stock" on the web site -- is still nowhere to be seen, and I've
still received no answer from DVD Planet Customer Service about this
title. So I'm only partly mollified: I'm actually grumpier about the
lack of communication than I am about the lateness of the orders.

If things don't shape up, DVD Planet is going to lose my pre-order
business: right now, I feel the savings aren't worth the hassle of
dealing with them.
