…and less than 5 minutes after posting that previous post, I got a shipping notice from Intrada. I'm sure it's just a coincidence, but good news nonetheless!

Either they saw us talking about them, or the hamsters at Intrada came back after a
revitalizing weekend, ready to rock and roll, as I also got a ship note for my round 2 order smile
Joy!

Well, that was crazy.

I went in for round 2 (with about 3 hours to go), and put all the following in my cart:

CONGO
DEEP RISING
DRESSED TO KILL
FALLING DOWN
THE GREAT ESCAPE
NIGHT CROSSING
RED DAWN
STAR TREK V
VON RYAN'S EXPRESS/THE DETECTIVE

Went to pay, and Deep Rising, Falling Down, and The Great Escape had all jumped to full price (the others were still showing on sale in my cart). So I refreshed the page to try and clear out whatever the glitch was. All looked fine again. Then proceeded to my confirmation page (after entering payment info), and right before my very eyes, the total jumped up again, only this time even moreso (as all of a sudden Congo, Dressed to Kill, and Night Crossing had all jumped to full price).

Didn't like my order leaping up so unexpectedly by such a large amount, so I cancelled everything except what still showed as being on sale. So when all was said and done, my last order actually only included Red Dawn, Star Trek V, and Von Ryan's Express/The Detective. Still a cool order, and I'm sure I'll love those 3 scores, but what a downer in losing more than two-thirds of my order in a matter of seconds. Really wanted those others. I'm sure it was just due to last minute buyers, but it sure felt like bait-and-switch in terms of process, since my total was re-calculating ever higher at multiple times throughout the checkout process (even more than once after entering my payment info!).

Yeah I missed this too. The day is not over yet for me, and especially not in Intrada's time zone, and the sale prices still show, so I thought I had time to order. I had finally gotten the money together and carefully filled my cart with titles I was missing. Went to check out and the price jumped up on everything on the last page. Congrats to everyone who was able to get in on this awesome sale though. I know its been going on awhile, I just didn't have the funds until now, unfortunately. Bummer.

I once got a shipping notice from Intrada (or was it LLL) the day after the package arrived!

Why not try sending an email to Intrada explaining what happened and see if they'll be really nice and run a manual order for you with the sale prices? They're really great so it's worth a shot...

I couldn't resist, and placed a second order of titles, this time a bunch of stuff in the unlimited MAF series (plus one Signature Edition I threw in as a blind buy because I had a good feeling about it)
 
A bunch of essential Jerry's
 
First Blood
Patton
The Sand Pebbles
The Great Train Robbery
Inchon
Rio Conchos
 
Other classics
 
Conan The Barbarian
The Great Escape
 
And the SE:
 
Remo Williams (TV Pilot) / Mission Of The Shark
 
Not a bad haul for $150!
 
 
Sadly, I could not pick up Breakfast At Tiffany's, Young Sherlock Holmes, Silverado, or Tombstone because they all went Out Of Stock before I placed my order.  I guess it's fortunate, for my wallet smile
 
 
Can't wait to have time to listen to everything smile

I know the feeling. My office cash flow has been so bad of late I haven't been able to pay myself. That means that luxury stuff like sales from Intrada and Quartet had to be passed over. In the past I would have been all over both sales.

Gary I think you and I are in the same small firm boat.

I am sure they just got slammed with last minute orders and are working the hamsters to death trying to get the orders full-filled and shipped. No need to panic...

Have just got hold of my first ever order direct from Intrada, thanks to their sale.

The Great Escape - E. Bernstein
The Wind And The Lion - J. Goldsmith

I was lucky to see both these gentlemen do their thing over the course of one evening many moons ago. This package kind of commemorates that event.
