Anyone get free stuff with a DVD purchase?

Post by JDK » Wed Apr 14, 2004 1:43 am

I just got back from the mall, and along with the DVD, I got a near-like life sized poster of Uma Thurman in her motorcycle garb.  It's different and unique from all the other posters so I'm happy.  FYE had the deal (although it wasn't advertised).

What about everyone else?

Yeah there is a rebate but it'll take years before I get that money back.

i went to an FYE affiliate called Saturday Night Matinee and also got the 10$ rebate plus the life size Uma Poster, but i think that you only get the poster if you reserved a copy in advance (which i did)
by the way, for anyone who bought the DVD:
who watched the ''documentary'' about the making of Kill Bill? it shouldn't have even been called a special feature, it was only 20 minutes long with no new information. useless...

I didn't reserve a copy and got a poster.

That "Making Of" is already old news as most people have already seen it.

Our FYE had a promotion where, if you bought any Sony batteries, you got a free gift...one of the free gifts being the damn near life-size Uma poster. My friend and I were halfway across the mall and I saw the huge KB poster on the FYE entrance, aaand more or less ran to it. It had this thing on it that said "Free with purchase of Sony batteries" so I busted out $1.99 and begged for my poster----not a bad deal at all, given that posters are like $7 a piece normally. And much smaller.

But no, nothing special with my DVD purchase. It was a whole 13 cents cheaper at Walmart than anywhere else though!

I got the poster which is exactly the same as the front cover of the DVD which kinda sucks coz i already had this one...

...And they are pretty darn similar
I didn't pre-order mine, they just gave me the poster when i bought the DVD.

No, it is different from that photo.  That's a German poster anyways.  And, it's different from the DVD cover as well... you just have to give it a closer look.

EDIT: I just hung up on my wall and it looks fucking kick-ass!  It's like 6-7 feet tall too.

Apparently some of the pre-orders in Japan received a jumpsuit style dvd case. Don't know how many were made...

Fucking Japanese. They get all the cool stuff.

Here in Canada, we have the super-special English/French packaging. Tuer Bill, indeed.

lol Yeah I got the Canadian version at Future Shop the morning it came out. No freebies, though. The cover is actually reversable.

No complains Admin  ;D , you knew that I´m crazy when you made me a mod here.... (btw, I allways thought that was the reason, why I´m a mod... )




No I thought this morning, when the KB 2 DVD is out, we can use this old KB 1 free stuff topic, so there is not need to make a second one. Only a little kind of work-reduction...

i got a EXTREMELEY rare wooden poster with purchase and its huge too.  I went to hmv on the 9th because they were having a midnight kill bill presale in Toronto.   Only at the one hmv downtown on young street.  The store opened at midnight and the first 50 people waiting in line got a free regualr poster and a huge mounted on wood poster. its an inch thick and was only available in the one hmv in all of canada.  Me and my girlfriend each got 1.

only 50 available probably world wide!!!

I was about to get this but I thought that when i got to the store they probably won't have had any more of the extra stuff and it would mean I would have to wait until like 7pm to get it (because I didn't pre-order one) and I thought theres no point wasting time by going to all the way to HMV and just to be let the down by them not having the extra stuff. Also the extras aint all that cool, I mean the the card sleeve is ok but my volume 1 DVD hasn't got a card sleeve and I don't want them to be different. So I'll be just gettin the normal DVD case one at about 5pm, can't fuckin' wait.
