    Surely it's got to depend on whether they judge that they've lost business
    as a result.

    The problem is that they might find it difficult to work out whether it's
    their loris-like customer service or their small price hike that is driving
    people away.....

    My guess is that they _won't_ reinstate free P&P - for some time, at least -
    it would piss off the people who have paid for their Fidelity iCarp, which I
    think includes 'free' postage.

    I seem to recall their having said before that free shipping was going to
    end and then, quietly, it was simply continued. Not sure what's up with
    DVDSoon. I've personally only ordered a couple fistfuls of discs from them
    and did experience one extended delay in shipping for an item that wasn't in
    stock (Roger Rabbit) but generally I've been pretty happy despite their
    eccentricities and I've even received relatively prompt answers to customer
    service email inquiries, if you can believe that.

    The 'iCarp' includes extra discount (increasing every year you have one) and
    free postage. Also there's an extra 25% off everything at the moment if
    you've got a card.

    It's a steal - buy one!

    I do admit the service is great with them but they do have a tendency to
    have stuff in stock and then you have to wait weeks for it, where as dvd
    pacific gets shipped quite fast if it is in stock. anyway will be using
    both as usual but will now have to compare the prices a bit more to include
    the extra shipping cost

  8. Exactly :D

    Just been checking a few price comparisons between DVDPacific and DVDSoon
    now that Soon charge for postage, I think DVDPacific will be getting more
    custom from me this year than last...

  9. Well they could reinstate free standard shipping, and let the Fidelity
    card holders get free first clas.. *shrugs*

    I don't have a card, I'm trying to cut down on DVD spending! :O

    At the risk of opening my mouth and proving I'm stupid, I've just been to
    their web site and it says " lease note that all Standard carrier orders
    will be shipped to free of charge:

    No minimum order... No minimum items... "

    What makes you say they're no longer doing it free?

    Where exactly?

    I can't see it on the front page - it used to be on the banner, to the right
    of the DVDSoon.com headline, below the Home | Account | Customer Service |
    Francais buttons...

    It couldn't be an old version of the page, from your temporary internet
    files, could it?

    If you click the "Some restrictions apply" link, it says:

    "This Free Shipping offer ends December 31st, 2004."
