Anyone else have Netflix showing all this weeks new releases as December 20th?

yeswor00

I had Traitor, The Women, and The House Bunny set for the 19th. Then Burn After Reading, Death Race, and Hamlet 2 set for the 21st. I can't remember which, but one was set for the 20th until it changed to the 19th a week ago.

The release dates are all over the place, I'm guessing the holidays. Hope to see Traitor and Burn After, sometime soon.

Many were released on Friday and Saturday this week. I assume it's due to the Holiday and to be on the shelves in time for gifting.

Two questions:

1. Will Netflix be receiving and shipping on Friday, Dec. 26, 2008?

2. Why do I keep getting an extra free dvd and how long will they keep shipping an extra free dvd to me?

Thanks!

"1. Will Netflix be receiving and shipping on Friday, Dec. 26, 2008?"

Why not, the 26th is not a holiday and USPS will be working. Why would not NF?

"2. Why do I keep getting an extra free dvd and how long will they keep shipping an extra free dvd to me?"

Do you have NF gift codes being used. Each code used gets you a free disc.

I'm getting the extra disc as well, starting last Friday 12/19, and no codes are involved. My best guess is that it's some kind of compensation for Netflix being closed for the next two Thursdays, but that's pure speculation.

Good luck with THAT!!!!!!!!!! Bull.

Maybe it's your settlement kicking in. NF is NOT giving everyone freed discs because they are closed on Thursdays. There are 13 or so Federal holidays (no USPS) as well as other days that NF is closed and they have NEVER given free rentals.

prozac

I agree with Bob...don't think NF is giving up a free rental.

Finngall

(shrug) I didn't say it was a *good* guess. In any case, the reason is unimportant. Whatever the reason is, I'm not complaining.

dave

Then it must be because Finngall and I are special and you're not. lol!

BoB

"Then it must be because Finngall and I are special and you're not. lol!"

Yep... "Special"!

:)

dave

Thanks, BoB! I'll think of you while I'm enjoying another one of my *free extra dvds* from NetFlix.

Check out the Cross Shipping section in the netflix blog could explain extra disks

Finngall

I've seen that blog entry. I've had a crapload of discs sent to me from cross-country over the last several months, so it's welcome news. But it doesn't really explain the extra disc since I've had a rare streak of all-local shipments over the past week or so.

dave

My free extra dvd is no mas! I believe it was an enticement to up a grade. If NF would offer more dvds I wanted to see (and yes, I submitted suggestions to them), I would do so.

dave

Forget what I said....I'm back to getting an extra dvd. :)

My extra dvds are unrelated to cross country shipping. Oh, well. Don't question a gift horse...
