Aaaaaaaarrr I Sold Windtalkers!!!

MANNNNNNNNN did I blow it. REally, really stupid of me. I bought windtalkers 3 disk as a blind buy. I was super happy I would be getting a free dvd with that. I saw the movie and didn't like it. I totally forgot about the free dvd offer and sold it without taking out the upc code!!!!

I still have the reciept though. I plan on calling any number I can find relating to mgm to see if I can still get the free dvd, if i send in the reciept.

What do you think my chances are of it being ok? Think they will stick to their guns and not give me the deal, or do you think they will let it slide?

I also bought Dances with wolves, and just sent in for my spinal tap dvd. Still had the upc code on that one


ARRHHGH! HOW COULD I BE SO FREAKIN STUPID!

I think this will be the winning scenario.

IIRC, you have the option of sending in the receipt or the UPC.

Its usually both, cuz anyone can just take a receipt and mail it, without having the actual DVD.

Fear not Justin. I looked at my DWW dvd, and the deal is you send in the proof of purchase OR the receipt - so send away!

So you got money for the DVD but are sad because you didn't cheat the buyer out of his UPC code?

thanks everyone (especially donnocha and samuel)

really appreciate it.


the bus, I don't understand your question. Why am I "cheating" the buyer? What the hell does he need a upc code for anyway?

If he wants the free DVD offer himself, or packaging in nice condition.

So couldn't a person just send in both the UPC & receipt and have one free DVD sent to the house & another sent to a work address??

Funny, when I was sending away for mine, I was thinking the same thing until I realized the catch. You have to send in the original form that comes with the DVD.... and there's only 1 of those.

All the "free" movies are like $10 new and shipping is $6, so it isn't much worth complaining about.
