Lightbulb Disney's New $10 Off Promotion

Disney has stated a new promotion with "The Rock", "Con Air" & "Crimson Tide" Blu-Ray titles that if you already own the DVD version and purchase the Blu-Ray version of the movie they will send you a check for $10. The offer is good as long as you purchase the movie by 12/31/08. This is clearly a move for people to replace their DVD versions of movies with the new Blu-Ray versions. All you need is the proof of purchase tab, or UPC, from your DVD plus the proof of purchase, or UPC, from your Blu-Ray, plus the invoice/receipt for your Blu-Ray to get the $10 back.

There is a catch though...Although Disney will take the proof of purchase from any version of any of the 3 films they will only issue a $10 check once. So if you own all 3 of the movies and bought all 3 Blu-Ray discs you only get 1 $10 check since the offer is limited to 1 per household.

It is a nice offer though and it would be interesting to see if other studios following the same trend to make people switch from DVD to Blu-Ray easier. It also shows Blu-Ray feels the next step is not defeating Blu-Ray, which it most likely has already done, but focusing people on upgrading to Blu-Ray high def.

I hate these things where you have to cut the UPCs out of your slip covers. They make my covers look ugly as hell, and I think I'd rather take the $10 loss, myself.

Good looking out, though.

I agree! This actually brings up the only thing I did like about the old Warner DVD cardboard cases. The PoP was tucked inside and you could easily tear them away without defacing the cover.

I'd rather wait until the titles I want are on sale.

I have those titles on DVD, but since I purchased them 5+ years ago I don't have the reciepts. This sounds like a stupid idea. I guess if you are purchasing HD products you might still be out there getting DVD catalog titles(that are coming to BD)?

According to the $10 form you only need the Blu-ray receipt.

I read it has to be a store receipt from a register so people are saying Amazon orders are not allowed which annoys me.

I feel the same way. I'll just trade in my Rock Criterion dvd and a couple of other dvds and get the Blu-ray version for no cost.
