So as part of my Pre-Disney Movie Marathon, I’ve been stocking up my DVD collection with Disney classics. Our family DVD collection is fairly tiny, so it needed a little brightening up, and in doing so I stumbled across this little gem that I feel any Disney nut should be aware of..
Disney Movie Rewards is a scheme in which by buying Disney DVDs or Blu-rays and even Disney video games and CDs, you can earn points which can be redeemed for a fab range of rewards. Along with some free rewards such as colouring sheet downloads and desktop backgrounds, you can spend your points on activity packs (around 25 points) to DVDs and Blu-rays (500-750 points), and even charitable donations to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
Why not get something for nothing?!
Setting up your account is easy – if you already have an account with Disney, even more so! Its just a quick form: name, email address etc, then you’re good to go. Each eligible item has a code, usually on the leaflet inside the box, all you have to do is pop the code into the website, then it will ask for the last 6 digits of the EAN, and that’s it: points earnt! 100 points for DVDs, 150 for Blu-rays, 80 for CDs, 250-300 for video games, and all of these add up surprisingly quickly so you can start reaping the rewards.
I found codes in three of my new Disney DVDs, plus my copy of Toy Story 3 on Blu-ray, and I also completed a survey for an extra 50 points, bringing my total points up to 500 – enough to redeem a DVD!
There are so many rewards to choose from, but I’m concentrating on DVDs, so I chose Cars (which would have cost £7.50 on Amazon) to spend my 500 points. You can redeem any reward up to 3 times per account, and its as simple as clicking ‘Redeem’, providing an address, and waiting!
Still not convinced? Well, whether you’re a DVD person or a Blu-ray person, it works out that for every 5 you buy/already own, you get one free, and who doesn’t like that kind of math?
So go on, get shopping!
