    The LOTR rebate requires A proof of purchase I don't mind cutting up my regular edition packaging but I am definently not butchering the special packaging of the NOV release to save 5 bucks. Does anyone know anything about how the proof of purchase might be situated on the NOV release?
    And who will butcher the packaging to save 5.00?

    Even so, I'm not chopping up my theatrical release for a measly five or ten bucks that'll probably take a year to get there. It's certainly a nice gesture from NL, but I think I'll pass.

    I'll have to check again when I gethome, but I don't think there are any proofs inside. I did notice them above the UPC code on the back of the cover.

    Probably the LOTR 4disc will have a proof on the booklet, not the packaging

    I think Paul thinks that the LOTR disk is in a snapper.

    Does it require the proofs or the UPC code (haven't picked up LOTR yet)?

    If it's the UPC code, I always just send in the UPC sticker on the top of the packaging...but that may not work in this case...

    The Canadian version has the POP as a corner tag on the insert, so no destroying of the exterior packaging is required. It is not clear however what exactly they are asking you to send it. We'll have to wait to see what the POP is on the gift set, which may not even be released in Canada by Alliance (and if it is, will it be Frenchified?).

    I double checked. The only proof of purchase I've seen was the three small sections of the outer keepcase insert. If you think the sticker would work, that would be the only way I'd consider the rebate.

    I noticed that all three little POPs have a unique number, making me think serial number. If that is the case, would be unethical to photocopy the insert and destroy that? If they are unique I wouldn't be misrepresenting my ownership, just preserving what I purchased.

    As an alternative, because there are three POPs, maybe we could share one insert and only destroy that instead of three inserts.

    What do you think?

    The POPs are not serial numbered, just given identifiers for each one. I doubt photocopies will be accepted.

    I'll cut my Proof-of-Purchase off, because my smelly Canadian Bilingual packaging has already been replaced by the all-English scan off www.dvdcoverart.com
