    I was right about the price cuts: e.g. Stripes SE $10.50 ish from $15. But my order pages not working keep getting this message:
    HTTP ERROR: 503 Server%5FBusy%2E%5FPlease%5Ftry%5Fagain%5Flater
    RequestURI=/members/cancelOrder.action

    Powered by Jetty://
    what the fudge does their site run on?

    Bullitt 2 disc SE down to $21. Just need to cancel and reorder loads of orders. Have they got only the 1 server :nono:

    i carnt log on either must be all the people now canceling thier orders and trying to order them at the cheaper prices.

    dvdsoon are so bad for there prices forever changing and there very poor customer service there site continually gooing down is just another thing if their prices wernt so cheap most people would go elsewhere

    this is a real tease. Of my 20pre/back orders all have come down in price significantly. I just hope that the reductions last longer than their server is down. I would be extremely ****** to find that the prices have all gone up tommorrow (I wouldn't bet against it though, would you?) ;)

    yeah, im not sure whats going on with my order.. it got to the natwest confirmation bit, i put my password in and then it just continued loading for about 10 mins, so i pressed refresh, it took ages again, so i cancelled the process. about 20 mins later i got an order confirmation and the dvd appeared in my orders.. so i have no idea if i've been charged once, twice, or not at all.. better give the CC company a ring tomorrow to find out..

    Few questions for Gorshin + Marc (the two resident DS experts):-

    Could someone please explain the re-order bit so I can try it with a few of mine, i'm assuming you can only cancel orders that are still in the pending menu?.

    Apparently there are two ways of canceling the order?, right?. Never needed to do it before now. Also, does the store credit go into your account instantly or do you have to mess about chasing it up which would be pointless with ds's non-existant customer service. Gimme your input guys.

    Oh, and while i'm here if I order 8 titles at once would they all be shipped seperate, or would I get blasted by customs as ds might hold them all back till all 8 are ready to ship?. I'm 90% sure it's the former but would like to be sure. Thanks for your help.

    There is only 1 way to cancel an order: via your pending orders. When you cancel the cost of that cancelled dvd goes straight to your credit fund so it is available to be used immediately. All titles are shipped seperately regardless of them being ordered together. Now if the site could ever get working again :lease:

    Thanks for that, sites working fine for me as I just ordered those 8 titles for a mate. I just rang him and said I had some good and some bad news, the bad being that ds have reduced the prices again (I ordered 20 titles for him last night!), the good being that he still had another 8 he wanted so he saved over a tenna on that 8 compared to last nights cost.

    About £2.50 which is pretty neat. :smashin: Cheers Marc, ordered mine. Any more info on this version? From what I can find it has a digitally remastered picture but nothing else different from old release.

    because on most occasions, it coincides with them having a site-wide price reduction, and half the world decide its time to cancel their pending orders and re-order at lower prices. dvdsoon's servers have a mare when that happens.

    Ne'er mind that wagging finger, least you didn't lose a tenna on a missing dead zone store credit!. I will need to re-order everyone of my orders to even break even now :(

    I never know where the hell I am with dvdsoon first I got very costly skanked with Alien Quad, then I got 2 small unannounced account credits, then they sent me two Angel season 1's the second of which I sold for the same price I ordered at £11.50 and now they skank me a tenna with no store credit. I'm struggling to break even with all these screw ups!.

    F***ing darn it :mad: I've been trying to bash this order in all day yesterday but with no luck. Now I see it's gone up to $7.60 (iCard price) which is £3.23. Oh well still worth it.

    Do you recon that dvdsoon could tell which items people were trying to buy yesterday so put the price up today?

    I reckon they're ******* scrumbags. Hotel Rwanda was $18 when the site was unusable, now over $21. Kinsey was low now back up by $5. A pathetic way to treat people.

    lol calm down guys, i agree its annoying, but perhaps there was just so much activity on their site because of the price reductions that it went down, it's not unheard of. i expect if they were to invest in lots of brand new servers we wouldn't see such cheap prices!

    i tried re-placing my cancelled order this morning and it worked, so it looks like they sorted out the "on hold" problem pretty quickly. also it appears my 12 monkeys is in packaging :smashin:

    My 12 Monkeys is also in packaging, although I ordered it a couple of weeks ago for $9.98 (which is still an awesome price).
