I agree, a huge adjustment!! What happened was.....I placed my order and waited. My Collage "account" showed my order, but the next day it had little notations such as "back ordered, will not ship until 01/01/1900", (not a typo), another said "will ship on 07/01/2014". I kept checking my paypal account too. Sure enough, I was refunded a certain amount. When I did the math, subtracting the "back ordered" items....my heart sank.

As I said, I'm now obsessed with getting those items that were not available. I guess that Collage just got bombarded with orders and the computer system couldn't keep up with what was available and what wasn't. I don't blame them. I still have some great workouts coming my way!!

To be honest, I'm probably being greedy!! I have many awesome workouts already. It's simply because I'm being told "you can't have this", that now I REALLY, REALY have to have it.

Weekly Specials

Hope this helps!
Thanks for posting this. I just placed my first order with totalfitnessdvds. The coupon worked and I got free shipping as well. I missed out on two dvds I wanted to get from Collage, but I saw them there and got them. I already have a rotation planned and I hope the DVDs give me a decent challenge. My body is wanting and needing new workouts. With those two I got, my Cathe collection, and my Beachbody collection I will be busy until Cathe comes up with something new.

Glad I could help and the coupon worked Remember everytime you place an order use the 10off coupon I got my order from Collage today, didn't get Amy Bento KB and 10 Min So Pilates workout! Oh well! Have fun with your new workouts

Take care,
Belinda

Sorry, you didn't get some of your order. College sold out I think in less than 24 hours. Mary is having a big sale soon, who knows maybe you can find those dvd's? Have fun with your new workouts.

Thank you Baynergirl for the coupon info. I signed up already for newsletters at total fitness. I'm waiting for my Collage order then I'll see if I can get the other dvd's for a good price somewhere. Its not crucial but......I had in my head that I would get them. Know what I mean?

The 3 I'm interested in are Michelle Dozois Peak 10 cardio interval burn remix ( I have her other Peak 10 wkouts and they are killer!), Patrick Goudeau Body weight blast and Cathe STS total body. But like I said, I can wait.......for a lil bit

Like many of you I had no idea that everything would sell out so quickly b/c when 'i went back the next day everything I had was gone. Hopefully my whole order will be in the mail tomorrow, I didn't get any notification if something was not in stock.

I wanted some of the KCM workouts (which I had in my cart on day one) so I will just instead from Total Fitness, not a rush that will be my alternative.

Glad I could help! I like Michelle D. but I can't do any high impact since last year, I had her dvd in my cart. But didn't get it, lol. Like I said, Mary should have a sale coming up next month She has some amazing deals twice a year. She also has daily and weekly deals. Sometimes she gives out FREE workout dvd's. All do pay is S&H When I see it, I will posted hereDon't forget amazon, great prices! Groupon is selling lots of workout dvd's .Lately I see a lot of Beachbody products on there. Have fun with your workouts! Mine come yesterday, I was sad that was my last order from CV

I just have to comment about how impressed I am with Mary and her site. Yesterday, I placed an order and forgot to include a DVD (the one I actually logged into her site to order, I got excited about discovering a different workout. I digress...). In any event, I ordered the forgotten DVD, sent a request for her to combine the orders in the same shipment. Not only did she accommodate my request, she sent me a nice email, giving me a head's up about. it. These days, you really don't find that sort of excellent customer service, so you can bet I'll be back to purchase more.

In addition, the site has a big selection of DVDs, and the clips are great. Best of all are the bonus points. I've already accumulated enough to a few bucks on my next order.

Wait! Hold on a second. I was just checking the best sellers on totalfitnessdvds and saw Tonique Addicted to Movement in there. Wowwee! That looks awesome. Did a search for all Tonique workouts on Amazon and the workouts are top rated. I have never heard of Tonique, yep I'm usually late to the party hehehe, but I like when my instructors use every part of the body and every angle that's humanly possible to reach. I think that the time I spend working out should be used to its maximum. It's a shame my order already shipped or I would've added it to my two DVDs yesterday. . This is on my wishlist now. I don't know which workout you discovered, but I just discovered Tonique, and it is very attractive. . Ahhh I might just as well order it. I'll think about it.

Just got an e-mail from Collage saying my order had shipped, but I'm also getting a partial refund. Looks like I only scored 3 of the 5 workouts I ordered, but the website doesn't show which ones I will be getting. Bummer! :-(
