The best you'll be able to get these at HWV will be $1.99, and even then you will need to get very lucky, they will definitely be gone after that and almost all will be gone before that.

I don't see DVDs rubbing against each other causing issues. I've already sent them, so we'll see.


My DVD's get scratched if I just store them label on top of label and they get moved around slightly. I hope you get them. One package can get moved around a lot more than another so one confirmation won't be enough.

It said not to tape them together so your only option is to leave them loose.


Or put them in sleeves.

i saw a couple people ask, but i didn't see an answer - has anyone actually gotten blu-rays back from this? were they sealed?

i see that there is shipping on orders under $35. is there any tax?

I havent taken part in this promotion, but I did with the HD2BLU promotion. I don't remember if I paid sales tax, but the new blu's were all sealed in original retail packaging.

I'm still upset that The Watchmen Facebook page advertised this site, but when I go there, The Watchmen is not listed.

I decided to send mine off and just put them in a manila envelope with a piece of paper as the sheath between them. I'm pretty sure they are not gonna be anal about the conditions. I think they say "in good condition" to prevent someone sending literally broken and cracked discs they found somewhere in the trash or whatever.

Anyway if, I'm certain as long as we paid and sent them in, we'll get them.

I'm sorry, I'm just not seeing the deal here. $5 for the disc, $3 to ship + time for them to get around to doing it. Most of these can be had at Walmart for $8 already (some were $6.99 last week at Best Buy). Perhaps I'm just missing it, but man, I don't see why everyone's going crazy over what appears to be such a horrible deal. :/
When your signature is bigger than the message you just posted, it's time to reevaluate things, people.

I got nine Blu's for $5.50/ea. How is that a bad deal?

It's decent if own the movies already and do free ship. I don't so I'd have to try to pick em up at HWV, but I doubt they'd have them by the time movies get down to the $1-2 range. I saw some of these (a few) at the store the other day for $9.99. Still keeping this deal in mind though. Just putting paper between each disc in the envelope is a great idea dg7md.

Does anyone know of any other ongoing programs like this one? It's a great opportunity to upgrade my DVDs and get some other blu-rays on the cheap should I find cheap versions of the DVD counterparts. If there are any others, I want to take advantage of them too.

For a while Paramount was doing $10 mail-in-rebates if you upgraded certain movies. I know last black Friday Best Buy was selling Braveheart and Gladiator for $13 each. With the mail-in-rebate that lowered the price to $3 per upgrade ($3.50 if you count the stamp) so that was a good deal but you have to wait a couple months to get your money back. I think that was supposed to end sometime this year, maybe next month? It might not be too late to upgrade a couple of those.

Yes, I bought Transformers Blu and there was a coupon for that MIR in the case. IIRC that ends 6/29/10 but don't quote me on that since I don't have the add sitting in front of me.

You get the original retail packaging for the blu-rays? That's actually not a bad deal. I guess I'm not sure how I thought they'd be shipped back, but I thought it'd be kind of a disc only thing in return since that's all you gave them. I have maybe 10+ movies from the list. I think I'm going to have to actually do the upgrade thing then.

From anyone who has actually tried the program, what was the quality of the blurays when they arrived? New in shrinkwrap? Are they just the barebones Bluray features or are the special feature discs included as well.

I have about 15 of these on dvd that I am interested in upgrading on, but I don't want to just jump in without knowing the end result.


I don't think they require you to send in special feature discs (assuming they're separate) and the special features on most blu-rays are standard dvd quality anyways. So, if you still have your special features disc, no harm if the blu-rays don't come with them.

I sent 7 dvds in about two weeks ago and received them today. They came UPS and I wasn't sent a confirmation from Warner that they received my discs.

My DVD2Blu discs came in a few weeks after sending them out, came in all individually skrinkwrapped and just like I got them out of the store. Overall, I'm very satisfied with this promotion.

Same here, got mine a few days ago, no complaints. No worries about the trade-ins getting scratched up in shipping to invalidate them, or sending only the Fullscreen edition of Elf and keeping the widescreen one, etc. I don't get where people were complaining about bare-bones discs either, the BD's I got have typical features I expect on BDs for the most part.

After seeing dg7md's post, I went off to my local pawn shop and got 7 DVDs off the list for $3 each. Then I went to a Hollywood Video and got 3 more for like $5. I just stacked them all in a bubble envelope and dropped it in the mailbox on Friday. I see no reason to put these DVDs all in sleeves, I made sure the DVDs wouldn't slide around too much, so I'm 98% sure that they will be fine. I'll keep you all updated on when they arrive and if I actually get a e-mail confirming that they received or mailed out my blu rays.

Roughly a week since I sent my DVDs in, and no e-mails yet. Got some more DVDs for this on FYE's store wide sale ($4.19 for 4 of my movies, and 4.89 for Ocean's 13). I'm also getting a few cheap movies off Amazon for this as well. You need 7 DVDs for free shipping and the cost of shipping is the cost of the average BR ($4.95) on the list, so why not?

The only email I think you get is the first one with the shipping label, from that point you can track if it was received but I think they just send them out and I'm pretty certain they won't make any attempt to communicate with you.

**edit**

Nope, I'm wrong about that. From their FAQs:

Q: What is the status of my order?
A: Your prepaid postage label includes delivery tracking (see above). We will also send you an email when your new Blu-ray discs ship. You will be able to track the Blu-ray discs through the UPS or USPS tracking system.

Ah. What was I thinking? I should of known to check the number on my shipping label. It said they received my DVDs on June 9th. At least I know they have my DVDs now! :)

I've been procrastinating on this deal for a while. The free shipping makes it worth it. I'm trading in The Lost Boys and Wedding Crashers, for just $10.50. Pretty nice deal.
