I just joined DMC and I feel pretty good about understanding the various terms and conditions, except the "Featured Title" bit.

If I just joined this week, will I be expected to pay for the August Featured Title? How soon will I get an email about it? Will the email include the link to say "no" to the title (I assume it would, but I just want to make sure).

I just want to know the process of declining the Featured Title so that I can easily do that in the future without worrying about it. I'm fine with the 5 title over 2 years commitment, their shipping rates and the general deals/offers they have.

If you log on to the website on the home page there will be a link to either accept or decline. Usually mid month is when the new featured title pops up, that usually when I login to make sure I decline it or accept it if it's something I'm interested in though I'm generally not. I personally stay a member mainly to get good deals on the exclusives when there's something I want or good deals on TV shows.

Thank you. I just logged in and it says I have no featured title to respond to at this time, which is good!

I joined mainly for the blu-ray exclusives of the live-action classics like Swiss Family Robinson, Pollyanna, Old Yeller etc. I'm also glad to see the number of discounts available as well.

I had canceled DMC a few months ago, after having been a member since 2006, because I had received too many unordered movies in the past year. But, I rejoined a month or so ago...I got a Cinderella Featured Title card in the mail, but it didn't show up on my DMC homepage, and when I called the Automated line, Aladdin was my option. So, I'm going to have to mail in the postcard tomorrow and hope that it gets to Wisconsin in 8 days! Has this happened to anyone else? I'd hate to have my first month back in the club ruined by getting another unwanted movie.

Wow, I hope I don't have this problem... Long shipping periods don't bother me as much as receiving/paying for things I don't want. I know this section of the site, but is there anyone reading who's still a member of DMC that has these kinds of problems?

Of course, I had wanted to stay a member in the case of future exclusives/offers, but maybe I should just get in, buy what I need, and get back out before anything like this happens to me. :headshake: I only need to get 4 more movies before I can end it and there are enough exclusives I want that I can blow through that quota. I got Moana as my 1st purchase fulfillment, and a bunch of package/shorts films for my first 4 for $1. There's just Pooh's Grand Adventure, a few of the sequels I don't have any version of besides VHS and crazily would like to have (like B&tB: The Enchanted Christmas), and a couple of others I couldn't just pick up on Amazon.

EDIT: OMG, I just saw the special package for that TSitS re-release exclusive package from ages and ages ago is actually still available on there....! :o

Hi! Since the issue I posted about all those years ago, I have not received unwanted selections. I'm not sure what was going on at that time period. I honestly think, except for that one issue, that DMC is worth staying in, as long as you remember to cancel your monthly selection if you don't want it. I don't buy nearly as many Disney movies as I used to- I didn't update to Blu, so I mostly just buy some new releases, but I'm actually tempted to start getting Blu + digital releases (if I ever have $), and DMC currently as all but a small handful (Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, 101 D, TJB, TLM, some package films). You can't beat the deals- 50% to 60% off once you buy one at full price in the same order. Just can't beat the prices. That's why I stick around.

Well, that's good to know. I never completed my Disney collection on Blu-ray. I just decided to get everything on Blu now, so I won't have to buy them again for the next 30+ years with everything going digital. :lol:

The full price for most of the movies on DMC is actually outrageous, I noticed today. I thought most of them would be $19.95, but really they're $27-37. :o That's crazy. So I won't be buying any of those exclusives until I fulfill the membership agreement. :roll: Too bad Disney doesn't distribute Ghibli films anymore; although they do have The Wind Rises on there.

EDIT: Never mind about the questions. The site updated. I think I'm going to buy the last 3 movies I need to buy to fill the agreement in a few days so I can be done and become VIP sooner.

A few of my thoughts on this:

-Never buy mass market titles from the DMC

-Always reject the Featured Title

-Use the promotional options when you first open your membership to load up on Exclusives

-Only buy Exclusives for your mandatory purchases

-After you've bought your mandatory purchases, close your account and in a few month do it all over again

I finished my member commitment a couple days ago. :) I was going to wait until I was VIP to decide what to do from there (see if the discounts were worth it at all). They had a 50% off on TV series deal this month even for non-VIP members, and I picked up the last three seasons of The Golden Girls I didn't have since that was cheaper than Amazon. I've already picked up the exclusives I wanted (Saludos-Caballeros, Pooh's Grand Adventure, Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas), but I'm thinking of getting The Weekenders, too.

I'm thinking I might pick up the Signature Collections for the titles I don't have on Blu-ray yet through DMC just because they come as 2-packs with the sequels. I wish the sequels never happened, but I do like some of them (in a TV quality way) and if I'm buying the original anyway, might as well get them together. *shrug* :P I wouldn't mind getting the Fox and the Hound Blu-ray through DMC, too, since the DMC cover's nicer than the regular.

If you do close out your account and then "start again" in a couple months, are you able to get the 4-movies-free-when-you-join deal again?

Yes. In fact, they might even send you a letter with a 5 movie offer after so many months since you close your original account down. Look for that.

Last questions to anyone reading who might know:

1. How long do you have to wait after closing out of DMC before you can do it all over again? Is there a definite time restriction for when you can start again or can you restart any time after?

2. I was really careful with what I bought to fill my purchase commitments the first time, because the details say 2-packs may be subject to different rules. Does anyone know from experience if 2-packs and/or TV series volumes don't count towards the commitment? If they did, I would try to buy The Weekenders for example. I only ask because I'd rather just get all 5 for my purchase commitment at the same time to spare myself some money in shipping and I don't want to screw it up.

This has been a few years (so things could change), but the last time I closed my account and re-opened it was between about a week to a month. You might be able to do this in a much shorter amount of time, but I personally haven't done any shorter.

Multi-disc sets should count towards your commitment. The issue they care about is cost of the unit. Good luck!
