I received a contact phone number after placing my order, so I'll double check with them tomorrow that the code is, indeed, sent to the purchaser before 8 a.m. NZST Monday March 25 for either the regular DVD or the Blu-ray.
This is for the first 500 customers who pre-order before Friday noon, so get on it, Kiwi Tornfolk! Unfortunately, they don't sell internationally.
2.7 Does The Warehouse ship internationally?
We do not ship internationally at present. We only ship to addresses within New Zealand.
Is this whole bizarre rigamarole a crazy way to sell a movie on-line or what?
The Warehouse NZ offer The Hobbit DVD and Blu-ray with code for special TDOS preview!
