Disney Blu-ray titles have $10 USD rebate Now that it seems that HD DVD's time is running short, Disney is running a rebate program on a good amount of its Blu-ray titles.
In a few titles, such as 'The Rock,' 'Crimson Tide' and 'Con Air', there is an included insert that offers a $10 USD rebate for consumers who've purchased both the standard-def DVD edition and the Blu-ray edition of the same title.

For the rebate to work, buyers must send in both UPC codes, the original insert, as well as a copy of the original receipt before December 31st 2008.

When asked about whether the program would be expanded, Disney said "that the studio does not comment on sales initiatives or strategies."

Sounds like an offer that applies to very few people. It wasn't clear, but I hope you don't need the original receipt for both movies. If that's the case, this would only be useful if you can find a copy of the standard definition movie in a $5 bin and buy it at the same time that you buy the high definition movie (after the rebate, you were given $5 to get the standard definition movie). I'd be interested in seeing how many rebates are actually mailed out for this.

Yes, from what I understood, you will need both copies of the receipt. If so, how many people do you actually think still have the original receipt for the SD copy?

it is very possible that people still have their old receipts as you are supposed to keep them for 7 years for some record something or other. finding them is another question.

u do keep them for a few years

Totally have to agree onthis one. For tax purposes you do keep them for a couple of years.
