Re: Upgrade Disney Blu-ray and get $8 coupon

I'm at work now and printed out the form for some Pixar movies (I've only upgraded Monsters Inc on my own so far). Its free for now so I will see if there are any good deals when I get the actual coupons so its not a big deal. Plus I have to see if any extensive 'mutilation' will have to be done to my DVDs, which I may just trade in any way.

I suppose that's a matter of perspective. At least with Disney, I get to keep the DVD and acquire the Blu-ray; with Warner's program, I have to give them my DVD in order to get the Blu-ray. Also, as of yesterday, Warner's available selection had dramatically dwindled; Disney appears to plan on expanding their program throughout 2010.

Re: Upgrade Disney Blu-ray and get $8 coupon

Apparently, the last local video rental store in my town is going out of business on the 31st. My cousin mentioned this to me last night, so I stopped in today. They had already been cleared out, but I did manage to buy (for a dime apiece) a handful of Disney DVD inserts. When The Lion King rolls out on Blu-ray, I won't have to butcher my collector's edition boxed set to get the UPC! (Provided, of course, this promotion is still going in 201X.)

Re: Upgrade Disney Blu-ray and get $8 coupon

Has anyone been emailed these coupons yet? Mailed in my request about 2 months ago and haven't received anything yet.

Re: Upgrade Disney Blu-ray and get $8 coupon

I haven't yet, but I'm in the 9th week of the requested "8-10 weeks" they asked me to wait.

Not that it matters anyway. I already bought 2 of the 3 blu-rays that I sent coupons for because I could get them cheaper now instead of saving $8 later (and paying more).

Nothing for me either. I also tried calling the 800 listed in the FAQ. But, all it is just a recording. I have left a message and still no call back.

Re: Upgrade Disney Blu-ray and get $8 coupon

so this also means the people who sent in proof of purchase tabs for special offers and giveaways when they first bought the dvds are also out of luck on this to.

Don't most of 'em have 4 tabs? I've never used more than 2 myself. Can't complain, either, since an upgrade like Monsters Inc. cost me less than free after all the discounts and selling the DVD on amazon for around $10. (that's with the tabs removed, and noted in my description!)

Re: Upgrade Disney Blu-ray and get $8 coupon

I received the emails from Disney with links to my coupons. 9 weeks out of the 8 - 10 weeks of the requested wait time. I would consider that acceptable.

Have you tried printing more than one coupon (using a different computer)? I'm curious if the link for each title is going to be the same for everyone...

Re: Upgrade Disney Blu-ray and get $8 coupon

Re: Upgrade Disney Blu-ray and get $8 coupon

So, since Toy Story 1/2 can't be selected before they are released I will use the available coupons during release week and get both at Target, Best Buy or WalMart and then request the 2 $8 coupons from Disney and rebuy them either at Target or Best Buy and return (Target gives you the full price paid before coupon back while Best Buy gives you actual cash back for however much the coupon was).

Re: Upgrade Disney Blu-ray and get $8 coupon

If anyone has a coupon for National Treasure, It's on sale at Target next week for $13.00.
I wish my coupon would hurry and get here.

Re: Upgrade Disney Blu-ray and get $8 coupon

Question for those who have received the e-mails, did you get them all at once or sporadically? I ask because I just got my 1st 2 today but no others and my upgrade request was about 14 titles.

Update: Disregard, for some reason it showed 2 of the coupon e-mails in my inbox but it put the other 11 coupons in my spam folder. Glad I checked in there. Now all I need is some deals to pop up which between hopefully for sure 2 this week at Target (National Treasure and Pirates) and if selected others includes the other 2 Pirates films I'll be on my way. I'm guessing some decent prices should pop up on the Pixar films when Toy Story 1 & 2 come out the end of March as well.

Alright, can you please elaborate on your 2nd part here. If I read this right you are saying the following, correct me if I'm wrong of course.

You go into Target with the $8 coupon and say Toy Story is $20. Say no tax involved you give the cashier the coupon and they say your total then is $12. You are saying you then are able to return the movie and they give you back $20? That just does not sound right, but is this what they would do?

If you check out Amazon and Best Buy online, all 3 Pirate Blu-rays are $14.99 each.

That is exactly what happens. Found out by accident when I got UP and Monsters Inc for negative $4.xx from Target. I confirmed it last week when I rebought Cloudy WACOM using the $3 coupon and returned my original purchase where I had also used the $3 coupon. My total ended up being $11.99 for that title. They ONLY do this with manuf. coupons. With Best Buy it is just weird. I had bought the original The Day The Earth Stood Still there for $9.99 and used a $3 manuf. coupon. Then, a week later I bought the same title for $4.xx during gohastings big sale. When I went to return my unopened copy to Best Buy I was told $10.61 has bee credited back to your card and here's $3 cash for your coupon. So, my total for that title was just over a buck Can't beat that! I'm loving all these different coupons and BD sales. My BD collection has grown from under 10 before BF last year to over a 100 now. And i will calculate my average, but I know when I do it will be under $10 and closer to $5 at least (if not even lower). I never thought this would happen, at least not this fast. It actually is much cheaper collecting BDs now than DVDs

One question with these - I'm assuming they are individually numbered right and you only get to print one of each?

Re: Upgrade Disney Blu-ray and get $8 coupon

When sending in the upgrade form, Do you have to include all the tabs from a title? For ex, Wall-E 3-disc edition DVD has 4 small tabs inside, A thru D.

Welcome to the forum!

To answer your question, you only include one tab per submission. So if you print up the request form for Wall-E, you will see a block reserved for you to affix one Proof of Purchase tab. I don't know offhand if you can make multiple requests on one form, but I think not. So if for some reason you want two Wall-E coupons, I think you would need to print two forms and send each in separately. Read the fine print before you do, though, and make sure Disney allows multiple redemptions per title.

Cool, thx! I wasn't thinking about multiple Wall-e coupons, just wasn't sure if all 4 tabs represented 1 POP or they just give you 4 POPs for some reason..

Pretty sure only 1 coupon per title allowed(given) per e-mail address.
