    I've had my Snow White DVD for 2 days now but still can't bring myself to cut up the cover. Am I the only one who feels this way? [​IMG]

    Huh?
    Why would you need to cut up the cover? Have I missed something here?

    There is a free DVD offer if you buy Snow White and 2 other Disney DVD's, but you have to cut the Proof of Purchase out of the back of the packaging. Disney REALLY should have just included a coupon like they did with their point system.
    It sucks, I don't think it's worth it.

    I'm in the same boat... I pre-ordered it from Suncoast, and the free dvd with pre-order offer requires you to cut the proof of purchase from the back jacket. I'm not sure if it's worth the free disc to butcher such a beautiful package.
    The only reason I'm tempted to is because there are a few discontinued titles on that free disc offer that I wouldn't mind having.

    I for one WILL NOT cut up my packaging for the free DVD offer. But one thing I will try is calling Disney & seeing they will except a photo copy of the proof of purchase. When I read the coupon, it also said that photo copies of the sales receipt will be accepted. So maybe, just maybe they will except a copy of the proof of purchase.

    Can't you just order your disc from the Disney Store? I did. It hasn't arrived yet, but you pick the free Disney DVD that comes with it, so I'm assuming that they'll just ship them both, and not need to cut the cover.
    Hey, I could be wrong...like I said, I didn't get it yet. I'll let you know when it arrives.

    Mike,
    I got both mine in the same box without having to cut the cover for that promotion. However, I will have to cut the cover and my LD back cover to get the $5 rebate! [​IMG]

    Can you not provide a copy of the proof of purchase? If I remember the coupon correctly, it stresses that the original coupon must be sent, but does not say that the proofs of purchase must be original.
    Of course, my memory could be faulty.

    I'm going to try sending a photocopy of mine with a note that says "I sincerely hope that a photocopy of the proof of purchase is acceptable to redeem this offer. Please design future offers so that the packaging does not have to mutilated on your collectible series of DVD's."
    I did the pre-order deal, but unless you did it from the Disney Store or some online places, you DO have to send the POP to get your free movie. But I'll try the photocopy and see what happens... 'cause I really don't want a big square missing from my cover.

    If only you'd gone direct to the Disney Store and ordered it there in person, you would have gotten some nice lithographs, a (useless and ugly) pin, and a slip to redeem your free DVD along with Snow White on October 9. No cutting necessary.

    I don't think that a photocopy is going to do it. There is another free offer for purchasing 2 movies plus affixing the tab C from snow white on the order form. If you read the fine print (this is on Disney's site) you'll note that a photocopy of the receipt is accepted but copies of the proof-of-purchase are not. So I don't think a photocopy of the original is going to cut it. Would it had cost so much to place a certificate of purchase inside the case?

    I wonder if I can find a high-res scan of the cover, print that out, cut it and send it in instead. Will they actually know the difference.

    Here's another idea....
    Did you see the come-on that they have to get you on their mailing list? Register your DVD ang get free disk replacements???
    Well, cut up the first one, then "have a problem" with the disk!!! Get a new one in the mail!

    Holy cow!
    Just cut the little square out neatly, it' really not that big of a deal. With all of the shit going on in the world, do you guys really care that much about your precious little DVD box art?
    I cut it out and sent it in for my 5 bucks without even thinking twice. It's the DVD inside the box that matters, plus, you can't even see the missing piece once the thing is on your shelf! The only one who notices it is you, once a year when you handle the box!
    I'm astounded at the level of complaints on this board, one of the greatest DVDs to ever hit the market and you guys find something to complain about. $5 dollar rebates, free DVDs, and you guys still complain.
    Sometimes I'm ashamed to be part of this elitist, anal crowd. I'm going over to espn.com to read sports.

    To paraphrase this thread's title, "Am I the only one who's sad to close up this Snow White thread because of Rick?"
    All kidding aside, I have to admit that Rick has a good point. We should be lucky that Disney has given us this spectacular disc so cheaply. It's the DVD deal of the year, hands-down.

    I do apologize to Donavan for going a bit off-topic in a thread he started, he didn't deserve his thread to turned into a heated rant. Looking back, I should have started another thread.
    But that is all I apologize for.
    My point was and still is... Disney put out one hell of a product, and I was not sad to cut up the cover.
