$3 Off Any Universal 100th Anniversary Blu-ray

Get a pair of $3 Off coupons for any Universal 100th Anniversary Blu-ray releases:

How to get your Coupons:

1. Go to http://universal.promo.eprize.com/100thanniversary/
2. Register with a real e-mail address. You will receive a confirmation e-mail that you have registered.
3. Once you've registered, go here http://universal.promo.eprize.com/10...amoe_code_page and enter your e-mail again.
4. Now you will receive an e-mail that contains a spin code.
5. Go back to http://universal.promo.eprize.com/100thanniversary/ (If you get prompted for your e-mail address on this page, just enter your registered e-mail again and then it will take you to the code entry screen.)
6. Enter the spin code that you received via e-mail.
7. Spin the wheel
8. You will most likely win a $3 coupon.
9. Click Next. Click "Print Exclusive Discount" link.
10. Click "Print Coupons". Get a coupon printed.
11. Click the back button on your browser twice. Get a second coupon printed.

Additional Information:

You can use the same registered e-mail to get additional spin codes (start at Step 3).

HOWEVER, a specific computer can only ever print one pair of coupons (steps 10 and 11). If you want to print more than one pair of coupons, you will have to use a new computer for every additional pair of coupons you want to print.

The pair of coupons expire 28 days from the date you press the "Print Coupons" button (Step 10). You should be able to copy the "Print Exclusive Discount" URL (Step 9) and not use it until you're ready to print your coupons, which starts the expiration clock.

The promotion ends on 12/31/12, so assuming they continue to offer $3 off coupons as spin prizes, you should be able to get coupons for rest of the year (assuming you have enough computers to continue printing coupons; virtual machines (with snapshot rollback) might come in handy).

Here is the list of eligible titles (will also be printed on the coupon). This should also include any additional 100th Anniversary titles as they continue to be released throughout the year, including releases such as Jaws and E.T.:

Re: $3 Off Any Universal 100th Anniversary Blu-ray

might be a YMMV thing but since best buy had to manually put it in, they took it for a random universal title not on the list. I was able to use it with the trade in and save $5 coupon.

Re: $3 Off Any Universal 100th Anniversary Blu-ray

It's never going to scan at Best Buy. They never enter the UPC's for these coupons into their POS, so it's up to the cashier's interpretation/discretion as to whether the purchase meets the eligibility criteria.

Re: $3 Off Any Universal 100th Anniversary Blu-ray

So Universal is releasing the public domain films Charade and My Man Godfrey. Will Criterion lose the rights to those films? TCM recently showed a restored print of Godfrey. Should make a good DVD hopefully. Sorry no blu ray for Godfrey.

Can this be used at Amazon? If so I can re-order the CE of To Kill A Mockingbird with the coupon.

How can you lose the rights to something that is public domain?

I'm sure I'll be harassing them once coupons for the horror and Hitchcock films become available.

It's possible, but not always doable. They figured it out with IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE by copyrighting the music score. And some Gene Autry films that had fallen into the public domain were re-copyrighted based on Autry's image. No legal expert here, so if anyone is, please feel free to correct my anecdotal evidence.

Re: $3 Off Any Universal 100th Anniversary Blu-ray

I've started seeing the 100th anniversary blu-rays in stores. Target has quite a few for $14.99, and Wal-mart has some for $15.00 and $11.96 from the first wave.

Couldn't you also look the rights to a particular transfer or restoration of a public domain film?

Not other coupons. The other possible prizes are things like, "Win a trip for 4 to Universal Studios!" Basically, the $3 coupon is the consolation prize that you're most likely to "win" every time.

You can't. Amazon doesn't take manufacturer's coupons.

I've been to 2 Targets and don't see them. Are they in the regular movie section? What titles are you seeing?

Yep, they are in the regular section. So far I have only seen Billy Elliot though at my 2 stores. Been hoping to find American Graffitti, Fast Times, or Babe.

The one I seen them at the other day had most of the first wave titles listed (blu-ray, didn't check the DVD only titles) all at the beginning of the blu-ray section (like the first 4 ft.).

Babe is one of the titles Wal-mart here has for $11.96. Wal-mart had a much smaller selection, maybe 10 titles total, and they were on the side of the main new release endcap.

This is YMMV - I've actually gotten Amazon to accept a few manufacturer's coupons by providing a link to the coupon in my request. It's always the "one-time exception" email, but I've been successful several times.

Yes, and they also took a pdf coupon from me via chat

Re: $3 Off Any Universal 100th Anniversary Blu-ray

Went to a 3rd location today and zip. Guess the stores around here just haven't gotten them yet. The only title I saw was a DVD copy of Apollo 13 on the $7.50 movie endcap.

Re: $3 Off Any Universal 100th Anniversary Blu-ray

I noticed the 100th Anniversary Blu-Ray of Inglorious Bastards was on sale for $9.99 this week at Target. If you pair it with the $3 coupon that's only $6.99 + tax. Not a bad deal at all for this movie.

Re: $3 Off Any Universal 100th Anniversary Blu-ray

My closest-to-me Target had them on an endcap (at the other end of the row from the new release endcap). They had most, if not all, of the ones that are currently out.
