Is there a way to verify a UV code without redeeming it? For example I already have Argo but came across another Argo code, how can i verify this new code is good without actually redeeming it in my account?
Also, since this UV discussion thread is painfully silent and slow can someone please PLEASE give me a link to a more utilized discussion thread where I can get some questions like this answered? PM'ing is fine too


The best way is to not be logged in to a Flixster/Vudu account when you try to redeem the code. If the code works, then it will prompt you to log in. If the code does not work or is otherwise invalid, then it should give you the error message right there without prompting you to log in.

 

I just tried that on the flixster website, and it automatically redeemed it to my account.  Any other ideas of how to check?

You seemed to have been logged in to your account when you tested the code, otherwise it wouldn't know whose account to add the movie to.

Do you possibly use Google to log in to your Flixster account, and were you using Chrome? That combination tens to introduce surprises to this process.

I used chrome and google, and failed at the whole reading the NOT be logged in part.  Oh well, lesson learned.  I just buy a lot of used blu-rays, and if i could sell the codes that I will never use for a couple bucks a pop, that just means I can buy more blu-rays :)

Is there a reason why I can't post to the "DVD/Blu Digital / Ultraviolet Code Trade" thread?

 

Thank you for answering.

I believe it's because you're new so you aren't allowed to post in the trading forums until you've been here for 30 days. I could be wrong though.

Two more days to see if you're right! ;)

Is there a difference between a Vudu code and a UV code?  When I go to my Vudu account, I only see UV.  I don't see where I would redeem a Vudu code.

 

Thank you in advance.

Is it me or is the cost of UV codes keep going up in price faster then my paycheck.  People are selling codes for $5 plus just for a single movie

I was regularly paying no more than $1.50 for new-release UV/iTunes combo codes in 2013. Older movies were going for .50 - .75 cents. In just two years the prices have increased by nearly 300% -- I assume this trend will continue, until the prices are only 5-7 dollars cheaper than purchasing the actual disc itself. It is a classic example of supply vs. demand. More and more people are realizing the advantages of digital content libraries, and the inflating prices are direct evidence of increasing demand.

I fear the day movies from my library suddenly go poof without warning due to expired licensing with the studios.

 

I'd be like "I have to put the disc in now??!?!?!" NOOOOO!!!

That is my fear too!  I started keeping a spreadsheet of what I have.

 

On a different topic, I bought a few movies from Walmart and did the app thing where it loads the movie into your Vudu account for you.  Is it wrong to take the code in the Blu Ray and trade or sell it?  I'm assuming it's still good to use.

Haha, I still have a few movies I still haven't opened since the movie was added to my account automatically.

I'm really new to all this digital library set up, but have really padded my vudu/UV library from my existing stuff.  But I personally can't stand itunes copies.  I hated itunes before, i hate it now, and I'll probably keep hating it.  Question is, I see a lot of people talking about XML and selling codes.  I do have a lot of itunes codes in my used movies that never got used.  How do I go about making sure which ones are regular itunes downloadables and which ones require the disc, and is there a big enough demand on CAG for me to list them for selling?

The ones that require discs come with the discs in the BR/DVD case that say digital copy or something to that extent. THere is a workaround that does not make the disc required, so they can still be sold. There is a demand for iTunes codes but not more then $1-2 for older movies UNLESS they are Disney movies.

Hey 1 or 2 bucks is 1 or 2 bucks :)  I'll have to sit down and pull all the code papers out of my copies and see what I got and maybe make a list.  Thanks!

Two more questions and I should not have to ask any more newbie stuff :)

 

1) I see instawatch listed a lot on the code thread.  I know that is through walmart and vudu, but how do you redeem it?  Is it a savings catcher receipt code?

 

2) On items that have codes listed for itunes and UV, of course I have used the UV code already.  Is the itunes code still active?  I guess that falls under the split code listing correct?  Just wanted to make sure before I list anything for trade or selling.

1. You can either give the receipt, which is YMMV if it actually works OR what most sellers do is make sure you use a Savings Catcher account that is NOT linked to a VUDU account. When you enter the TC number from the receipt if it works you'll just get an email with a link to click and that will add the movie to the currently logged in VUDU account. This way they know the buyer will get the movie instead of hoping it works.

 

2. Some that say UV+iTunes or UV or Itunes have both...Some are either/or. I honestly never keep track but I do know this, Sony is just UV and Fox is either/or. Oh and HBO stuff is currently UV, iTunes, and Google. This does not fall under split code listings. That is for Disney movies that have used a work around to split the code into a DMA and a Google redeem

For that one I think you need to use flixster with your existing UV account via a proxy. The one I use is tunnelbear. Last I heard was flixster was having issues a few days ago, not sure if they are fixed.

Hey, can people Fuck off with huge posts in the trading thread, especially with obnoxious colors? Use spoiler tags. Especially when it's the same trash like clockwork. Even if you have what I want at a great price I'm not buying from you.

 

And when's the last time anyone even read this thread?

What do I do if someone on the Trade thread doesn't provide the code after payment?

I understand that its "Trade at your own risk" so I'm not talking about getting my money back. Im curious if there's a way to at least flag the user so nobody else gets scammed also.

Their feedback, mostly. You can maybe try to file something with Paypal, though it's harder with F&F.
