Relax, they don't charge you until it ships.

And what a reasonable price! I would have paid twice that without blinking.

HOLY HANNAH! I'm excited! Come on Browncoats, pre-order and send a message to the money men that we mean bu$ine$$!

WHO WANTS A 10% DISCOUNT?

I also posted the below on the other thread. I recommend everyone who is willing to wait a little bit post their e-mail addresses and then others when they order can include those addresses on their 'share the love' list so they get a 10% discount. People who do so should quickly post to the thread to let others know which e-mail addresses have already been done, so we don't have the same e-mail address added to too many orders (probably won't hurt other than getting lots of spam from Amazon...)

WHO WANTS A 10% DISCOUNT?

Post your e-mail address here soon and I'll add you to my list before I confirm my order so you can all get a 10% discount! (see offer from amazon below):

Before you finish... Share the Love!TM
Use our Share the Love program to send your friends an additional 10% discount on the items you've just purchased, and if they buy any of them within one week, you'll earn credit toward future purchases. Learn more

I agree.
I have done it, and have not received SPAM from amazon.

I propose we do something like this:
If you're looking for someone to share the love (STL) with you, type, STL:
and if you just STL with somebody, type, SHARED with , just so we know that browncoat has been taken care of.

with that in mind....

VISIONARY


I WISH Amazon.com was a viable option for us Canucks. I'm leaving the country for six months and want to preorder Firefly, Two Towers Extended, and Babylon 5 season 3 and get them shipped to a friend's but Amazon just hoses us up here. The first and only time I used them I ordered the score for Fellowship cause it was listed as $13.99. I had gone to Amazon.ca thinking it would be the canadian equivalent but, little did I know, it had just routed me through to Amazon.com. When my VISA statement showed up the bloody CD wound up costing me over 50 bucks! There were 3 different fees tagged on to do with shipping and dollar conversion. I can't imagine what these would cost me.

Note to self: Make Canadian equivalent to Amazon.

Question...do I have to completely place my order before the "Share The Love" option becomes available?

And can I go ahead and place my order after someone "shares" my address?

If this works like I think it does, I'll pop over to the trekBBS and star an STL chain with the many known Browncoats over there (and the new wordeforge board for those who know what I'm talking about)

I am replying to TRS80 only because he is above me. I am not talking about him in anyway, just making a generalization.

The generalization is this:

Christ, 10% is like saving 3 bucks. I would have paid double, triple, more, for this DVD of Firefly.

Why worry about 3 bucks, why purposely lower the total revenue of this DVD? Uniting to save three bucks only hurts Joss's presentation of the commercial value of Firefly. Can't you all pick up pennies between now and December and get yer 3 bucks somehow?

I'm not sure Amazon looks at it like that....the discount is their way of "buying advertising" with you.

It's built into their profit margin...it doesn't affect Joss' take or the reporteed revenues at all, AFAIK.

The $3 comes out of Amazon's cut and it's so much "overhead" to them.

I don't think you have to worry about the revenue stream to ME.

OTOH, the "shareing" greatly increases the potential base of buyers which not only DOES increase ME's revenues, but also promotes the visability which comes from being on a best-seller list.

IMHO.

Cool, I take it all back (what is AFAIK?). I was primarily concerned with the reported gross revenue of this fine product.

I do believe that Share the Love can help increase buyers.

Yes, I bought three, and forgot to give Maniac's email. I just chose, "No thanks, please continue..."

So, please forget what I said above.

I hear you. I don't know why FF DVD is not on Amazon.ca. Anyway, I do want to wait for it b/c it will likely be more uh, advantageous, than ordering from amazon.com. I know sometimes something like this delay happens on the Apple.ca store after new product announcements.

I tried to find an email address on amazon.ca. No luck. I will try to call them today.

And way to go Browncoats! It's No. 2 (at the time I'm writing this).

Hey, I'm in Australia, and I'm just importing them. No question. There is a slim chance they might be released here, but I aint missing out on any of those features.

And, to that person that asked, all you need is a multi-region DVD player or a DVD drive on your PC that's been firmware unlocked. Pretty easy really, and legal too.

Don't trust Best Buy.

I mean, go ahead and pre-order, but don't bank on actually GETTING it shipped on Dec 9th...

I've had a go-round or two with them before on this crap, the worst of which was the Playstation2 network adaptor when they first came out and were rare as hell.

Ran all over town trying to get one, and eventually wound up on Best Buys site which said "IN STOCK" - to me that means THEY HAVE THEM.

As soon as I put in the order, and they got my MONEY... it clicked over to "back ordered" and I hadda wait THREE GORRAM MONTHS for something they claimed was "in stock" to get my cash.

And is Amazon is sold completely out, and so quickly, do you REALLY believe Best Buy is gonna have more stock ? really ? get real.

Having no other choice, I have an order in too, but I'd say the sun rising in the west is a safer bet than Best Buy actually shipping them on the 9th guys and gals, so be prepared when it don't happen, ok ?

Just figured some fair warning was in order, cause they're just about notorious for claiming they have stuff in stock when they don't.

Please dont hate me jie jie ;)

I just got this e-mail from TVShowsOnDVD regarding FF on amazon...

Dear Kaythryn,
We've added a news item for "Firefly " to the site. Here it is:

Where did Firefly go?! - 4:20 PM 8/05/2003
Well, after receiving a ton of email to the effect of "Where did
Firefly go?!?" I thought I'd better post a news item. Amazon.com seems to be
jumping the gun on Fox product these days, and they've done it again
with this release. They post something, take a bunch of orders, then Fox
probably calls them and they pull the orders and cause mass confusion.
Way to go Amazon! The fact that Amazon has pulled the product off their
website means nothing, and we expect the set to be released when it's
supposed to be released. Don't like the antics of an etailer cause you
stress. Since there's no place to buy the set, we pulled it from our
site). Once it goes back on sale we'll post it again.

You were sent this email because you have expressed having "Firefly "
released on DVD. If you no longer want to receive these emails you may
change the setting in your User Options - "Change Account Information".
