If their site specifically shows the SE DVD, does that mean they won't take in the regular DVD edition for the Blu-ray version?

To the "If I send you an offer via PM, please respond to it even if you aren't interested" guy, I'm still waiting to hear back from you after I sent you a PM in July of 2009.

You guys may also want to see if any pawn shops around you are selling dvds for a dollar (some around here have gotten to that point). You can pick up cheap copies of some of these and then swap them for blu.

I asked the and there are a number of blus on backorder. Mine has been delayed because of The Mask, V for Vendetta and Oceans Eleven.

Well, that sucks. My first order has V for Vendetta in it. And I'm about to send out Ocean's Eleven & The Mask.

Also, what's up with the site having Ocean's Eleven & Thirteen, but not Twelve? Been tempted to get a DVD copy of Twelve so when they put it on the site, I'll be able to ship it out.

That is good advice, skin. That's what I've been doing (I'm willing to pay $2-5 for a DVD so I can get a BR that is roughly $15-30 at retail.) Been getting a lot of the DVDs on the list at pawn shops, a liquidating Hollywood Video, and the current store wide FYE sale that's going on in my area. I'm mainly just grabbing whatever I can find that is used and cheap, and then I'll exchange them for blus.

Thanks

Just the movie disc. Example: Elf has a Wide/Full screen disc. You only have to send one. Terminator 3 has a separate Special Edition DVD (It's a 2 disc set), you keep the Special features DVD and just ship out the movie DVD.

Remember to ship out the right disc, or else they will destroy it, and not send it back.

Seems like standard time frame on mail-in deals like this is 6-8 weeks, so not that unusual.

I really wish they would update the titles every now and again. Even if it means taking some titles down, it would be nice to see some other movies cycled through this pretty sweet program. Oh, and $4.95 flat rate for all upgrades. But maybe I am just asking too much...

I'm just glad Warner does this...even if it's not perfect. I put in two seperate orders during the free shiping weekend. Last time I did DVD2BLU, I think the turnaround was about a month to six weeks.

Can you imagine if Paramount or Universal did this?

Edited by tidwell, 21 June 2010 - 08:00 PM.

Now that you mention it I do have trouble breathing underwater sometimes.

Do you like bad movies? Well, bad movie reviews, anyway?

If anything, Paramount and Universal should do HD-DVD to Blu-ray.

My Blus came! They arrived today (after two or so weeks) inside a large bubble envelope.

EDIT: Found Elf, lol. Found it in between a bunch of PS3 games, silly me. All we have is good news now. Went ahead and sent out 10 more DVDs today!

Wish they would add the Harry Potter movies.. They have them for the Red2Blu program.. hate to spend another $25-$35 for the HD-DVDs then another $5 Each to then convert to Blu when I already own them on DVD.

Question for those who have done this and have recieved the blu rays. Do you get the blu ray dvd with the case or just the dvd and you use your old DVD case?

The DVD2Blu site says this too, but all you need to send them is your DVD. Nothing else. They recycle the DVD, and send you a new Blu Ray w/case in plastic wrap.

Cool thanks I have been to the site but kept missing that part too.

You get the entire shrink-wrapped blu.

I received mine today - it took a total of 10 days from the day I purchased them until I received them. Very fast (but I live near Michigan so that may help).

can't some of these dvds be found used an amazon for like a penny each used plus shipping. if u can find a seller who has a bunch u could possibly make this a true cheap ass deal. might be too much a pain the ass to try to find someone with all titles but if u got the time u could make a killing

Got most of my DVDs the second time I did this for around $3-5 from Amazon. Most of the movies I just buy the Full Screen version for a penny + shipping (which is usually $3 shipped), then I ship it out to DVD2Blu.

It seems packaging is a bit of a mixed bag. One guy earlier in the thread said he got his Blus in a box, while I got my in a large bubble envelope (all of them were loose). Thankfully, I only had one case with some minor damage. How was the packaging for everyone else?

It'd an odd phenomenon, this thing called the internet. People know how to get onto Craigslist and Ebay, but have no idea how to price compare to see if they're going to be overpaying. Just like some people here would rather post a question and wait hours for a response than taking the 20 seconds to look it up themselves. ;)
