Warner Announces DVD to Blu-Ray Trade-In Program

So you’ve bitten the bullet and purchased a Blu-ray player, but now you’re left with some of your favorite movies on DVD and can’t really afford to buy new copies of all of them. Warner Home Video feels your pain and has set up a special website where you can upgrade up to 25 of your discs for $7.95 or $9.95 per exchange with free shipping on orders of more than $25.00.

Warner Announces DVD to Blu-Ray Trade-In Program

Here are the details: Visit DVD2Blu.com and look through their list of 55 films (with more to be added in the coming months). You’ll print out a pre-paid postage label, mail in your DVDs (without the cases), and then receive your Blu-rays (complete with the typical case, cover art, bonus materials, etc.) a few weeks later. The genre titles that are currently part of the offer include Beetlejuice, Constantine, Dark City, Final Destination, The Lost Boys, The Orphanage, Pan’s Labyrinth, and The Shining (if you get nothing else, this is a must-buy!).

According to the story in Home Media Magazine, the DVDs sent to Warner will be destroyed. “DVD2Blu is a great way for consumers to start or expand their Blu-ray Disc collection,” said Dorinda Marticorena, Warner Home Video SVP of worldwide marketing and high definition. “We’re launching the program with a wide range of titles that will appeal to a broad audience.”

This is a pretty great idea — hopefully some of the other distributors will jump on the bandwagon, too.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    currently the only blu ray player i have is my ps3. I will not use it as a blu ray player. However this is an excellent idea.

    • The Woman In Black

      You won’t use it as a Blu-ray player? Considering the scarcity of games for the PS3, what the heck DO you do with it? lol Ours is about 80% used for Blus and 20% (if that) for games.

    What a great idea and one that is somewhat overdue I might add. Thank you for taking the time to inform us of this great new service and for explaining to us exactly what we need to do. casino online italiani

    This should (and could well) become par for the course. What a GREAT idea.

    Cool idea, more companies should do something like this. I did the $10 rebate for Braveheart and Gladiator and it’s been almost 2 months and still haven’t received anything. Unfortunately I only own The Shining and Full Metal Jacket, but I’m not sure whether I’ll send them in coz I don’t really trust that I’ll actually get the blurays.
