Columbia House—remember them?—is still around, offering A/V buffs a place to purchase their entertainment.
Sure, we know better than to get sucked into their web of high-priced home entertainment, but the Home Theater Blog says that they have one deal that might be too good to pass up.
Apparently, they are sending out flyers that offer three Blu-ray movies for only $4.99. However, that offer will lock you into a processing fee and a membership deal. According to the original story, it looks as though the service’s HD selections are pretty slim and there was no mention of the “processing fee,” but it did say that the membership means you need to buy another three discs at $28.95 each.
We couldn’t find any mention of the deal on Columbia House’s website. In fact, they don’t even have a Blu-ray section. You’ll need to type it into the search field to find out what’s offered.
While that all sounds like fairly normal pricing, I might still be on file for an LP fiasco back in my formative years.
Would you be willing to get locked in for those low-low prices?
