While I wasn’t expecting it this soon, I can’t say as I’m totally taken by surprise to find a Columbia House offer for 3 Blu-ray discs for $4.99 in my mail this week. The offer seems attractive enough, you pick of three discs with movies like 300, I Am Legend, Spider Man 3, Harry Potter etc. for the seemingly paltry sum of $4.99, but it’s the whole “membership” and “processing” fee thing that leaves me a bit leery.
I’ve heard friends claim to have had no problems with the Columbia House DVD memberships plans in the past, but something tells me given the current selection of discs I’d be better off buying retail (albeit heavily discounted retail).
Reading through the details of the offer I was hard pressed to find any mention of exactly what these “membership” and “processing” fees were going to cost but I did see that you’re basically agreeing to purchase three more Blu-ray discs at “as low as $28.95 each”. Yeah, I think I’ll stick to my current method of purchasing discs.
