    i thought they had reduced their prices on alot of preorders from the usual $25.98 to about $20.98 and new releases but thinking of it if you have to pay for postage $4.98 now they are about the same as they were before when postage was free

    the bargin titles and older titles have gone up by a couple of dolars so including the price of postage are now quite expensive.

    I very much doubt free delivery will come back... unless, of course, Soon's sales take a nosedive.

    lets hope not for those who were hoping the extra savings on postage would justify the cost of the discount card. I have already saved 000's of $ so not too fussed. I wish thier prices wouldn't fluctuate so much though. Its almost a full time job keeping track of your orders to work out if you should cancel and reorder

    i ordered enough to justify the cost of the card - so i'm not too bothered.
    although from their point of view it'd probably be preferable to drop the price of the card (and/or offer it with no extra 5% discount) to offering free postage altogether (at least that way they get some $$$ and encourage customer loyalty)

    of the 10 dvd orders i made during the promotion - 7 prices have gone up, 2 remained unchanged and 1 has fallen. So overall the prices do seem to have risen

    although the price fluctuations always keep things interesting

    It's happened for the last 2 years - whenever free postage ends, the prices suddenly get a bit cheaper and when free postage innevitably comes back, the prices rise to compensate. Given the way DVDSoon seems to operate, the icard scheme seems to be a way to to quickly increase the company's cashflow.

    I like the price changes. It means that an order can be quickly cancelled and reordered if the price has dropped.
