Re: Cars Blu Disney Movie Rewards $8 Upgrade

I don't get why they're promoting it to people who already have the blu. Are there more features on this one?

Two coupons? Time to cancel my Amazon pre-order.

A DVD...I think that's it...a DVD of the movie.

Yup, that's it. It's just a money grab.

Also, I'm sure if they didn't let you use the Blu Ray UPC people would probably complain, so this just avoids any potential sticky situations.

Re: Cars Blu Disney Movie Rewards $8 Upgrade

From what I've read, they have "upgraded" the audio on the Blu-ray as well to DTS-HD Master Audio from PCM, but I can't confirm that for sure. Also I read that they upgraded one of the shorts on the disc from SD to HD. Meh. I'm happy with my SteelBook, but I wouldn't mind swapping the disc from that for the new one.

Edit: vmars beat me to it.

Re: Cars Blu Disney Movie Rewards $8 Upgrade

Quick question for you guys. Target's policy is that it allows 1 Target coupon and 1 manufacturer's coupon per item. So next Tuesday, I should be allowed to use the Target coupon and the Disney coupon on The Incredibles AND use another Target coupon and the Cars Coupon on Cars, correct? Thanks in advance!

Re: Cars Blu Disney Movie Rewards $8 Upgrade

Entered in my UPCs for the 2 coupons and it also gave me a free Cars 2 movie ticket. Glitch maybe?

Has anyone else gotten this on DMR? Its under Unlocked Offers after you enter in the Cars/Incredible codes.

No free movie ticket here either, and both printed without any problems.

Really odd... I guess it went back and counted the Rewards Code for Mater's Tall Tales which is also eligible for a free movie ticket. Although that code was entered a few months ago.

Re: Cars Blu Disney Movie Rewards $8 Upgrade

Incredibles is worthy upgrade for $10 plus $5 bunny bucks at target but I am holding off on the Cars since I have the blu and dvd for it already.

Re: Cars Blu Disney Movie Rewards $8 Upgrade

Like others I got the free movie ticket to Cars 2 Wonder if I will still get a movie ticket when I enter the Incredibles code next Tuesday though. I should.
By the way this Cars release is not an upgrade at all. If you count the original DVD release then this is the 5th release - DVD, original BD in 07, BD steelbook in 09 and BD/DVD giftset (the one pictured in the Target ad) in 08.
I actually have gotten all the previous releases for various reasons - the original DVD for the Target bonus disc (and I was given the Best Buy giftset with the toy cars), the original BD (which I've later sold) for the $10 MIR upgrade and the blue McQueen car, the BD/DVD giftset for the combo pack, upgrades and the 2 exclusive cars(and $12.99 on Amazon was a great price I thought) and the steelbook for the collector in me (plus Best Buy had a great deal on all the Disney steelbooks and actually let me PM to walmart.com).
So, there should be no reason for me to "upgrade" to this latest offering, BUT I am tempted due to the movie ticket, $8 and $5 off coupons and the DMR points.

I already have the old Cars BD (unopened) and plan to buy the new Cars BD along with The Incredibles BD... as long as I can PM BB's combo discount and/or get them to take both $5 Bunny coupons. Then I can try to get rid of my old unopened Cars BD.

I opened mine just to use the DMR points, but haven't watched it yet. Now I'm kicking myself... Oh well.

Are we sure there's no audio upgrade for this release?

how would there be an upgrade???? the original track was completely lossless and fantastic as it is. it's been reported all over the place that the only difference is that the codec has changed from Lossless PCM to Lossless DTS-HD MA... nothing but a compression codec change

Re: Cars Blu Disney Movie Rewards $8 Upgrade

I'll be getting the Incredibles but I got the Cars dvd & blu ray which I combined into a homemade combo pack. Just had to get a blu ray case which would hold all the discs & have everything but the DMR points.

Re: Cars Blu Disney Movie Rewards $8 Upgrade

I don't know how there would have been, but I remember when they re-released it there were rumors of an upgrade, so I was just asking what the difference was, if anyone knew. Based on your reply, there's obviously not a difference.

I had Mater's Tall Tales registered in November to take advantage of the blu-ray player offer. But I didn't get the free movie ticket this time. When did you register your Mater's?
