To put things in context, yesterday I received my free movie pass...that I ordered Nov 29th during the Black Friday sale. It took over a month just to get a free movie ticket.

Received a whack of emails today with order updates, so I guess they work on New Year's Day...

To echo what someone mentioned earlier regarding the digital downloads, HD movies are not all of the same quality, far from that... Toy Story 2 shows up at 3,500 k/s and it indeed looks absolutely beautiful on my 42" 720p. Prisoners and Now You See Me, both also supposedly HD, show up instead as 2,200 k/s in Roxio Player and clearly have lower image quality. In fact, Wolverine, which I bought in SD, is of similar quality. I don't understand what is going on. Anyway, at least I finally found a way to get rid of the DRM and play them on my Apple TV...

I received my first of 8 movies ordered today in the mail. Ordered on 26th. Despicable Me was supposedly backordered but showed up with the movie pass today. Weird thing though, Top Gun 3D was in stock went into shipped status earlier and that didn't arrive today.

Here's my 'The Shield - The Complete Series' story. A long-time fan of this exceptional series, I was looking forward to a crisp and clear Blu-ray set for my home collection. But as we now know, it's not available from Sony. Over the last decade with all the media upgrading progress, this is a disappointment. So it's back to DVDs.

It was very exciting to see the major price drop of the complete seven-season set at both Cineplex and Walmart. But Walmart was OOS on-line, so since I've been a customer of Cineplex for a while, I ordered from them aware of their flawed delivery process. So all in $Can26.54 with 1 free GA ticket I figured that was the better deal for me.

Ordered Dec.20th, On backorder, Received today Jan.8th. Not a problem with the delayed delivery and probably the best DVD deal I'll score for 2013/2014. :)

Customer service was great as well, it took well over 30 minutes to get in touch with the cineplex store but speak-phone does wonders for call waiting :) The rep apologized and despite me ordering the same movie again and gain just to redeem the points she still give me my points as I did not receive it for one order.

I emailed them about not receiving movie tickets but did not receive a reply. Do I have to call in? Is there a email?

I can't speak for napoleon, but I received the first of my backordered movies today - no movie pass in the parcel, or on the packing slip inside the parcel. The pass is shown as shipped in my Cineplex account, however. Not sure if it would have been shipped separately?

I've received 3 of 8. All but 2 have shipped. I received 1 movie separate from the movie ticket so far. The ticket came before the movie. So far so good , just takes forever the shipping. Canadapost might be some of the reason for this though

Just an update: My next movie came with the movie pass inside the envelope. And the last two movies had it stapled to the receipt. I finally received the two passes from the first two movies yesterday. Both came in separate envelopes.
