Don't know why you're being so rude for. Several people have e-mailed DMR to say they purchased US titles AND received points for it. I've read through every page of this thread and this is the first I am hearing that they have said no to granting someone points for US Disney purchases on the UK website,

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knows anywhere where I could buy the Sleeping Beauty and Pinochhio Blu ray slip covers for the Platinum editions.

I have both but both are without the slips and I have the slips for all the others Blus

Also, does anyone know if Rescuers Down Under is getting released in the UK on its own?

Ok maybe I was a bit blunt but still. If I bought a US title I would not expect DMR points for it. My main issue is that the person has come and post several posts complaining about the fact Disney did not give them the points and in a manner which suggests they are entitled to it which is not the case. The others who did get the points were just lucky it would seem.

My issue is they have done so for others. They either do or do not, not just on the whim or luck of the draw as to who can be bothered to respond.
As for my comments on Disney UK, well it stands and it is true. Disney UK consistently show inconsistency and generally stiff the UK on nearly everything. It's 200 points. Is it going to bankrupt them ? No. My example was to show that the level of service at other parts of the same enitity, Disney, are much better.

I am not complaining, so sorry you choose to take it like that, simply sharing my experience with others, as others have done so previously. If I wanted to complain, I'd complain to Disney, but as I clearly said, I accept what they have said.

Disney UK once more failed to surpass any kind of expectation I have of them, much like any part of their dealings outside of the USA. My current expectation is that they will continue to actually release titles and these will work when put in a player. Last year with Tarzan it's debateable if they managed to even do that.

Anyhow...... and back on track, glad Tinkerbell is getting a UK release as it didnt warrant the extra price importing it, though I have not seen mention of 3d/non 3d versions which could mean no slip, which would be a pity given some of the packaging variants seen on previous releases from play and HMV.

So I emailed them through their Disney Store website.

Today I got a very nice email apologizing and a shipment notice for the missing item. So I'm extremely impressed with their handling of the matter considering the time-difference between my order date and me asking for the item. Fantastic customer service.

Interesting it's at an Apple store as opposed to, say, a Disney store ?

Apple Regent St Store and I believe one in New York always do meet and greets with various filmmakers, comedians, artists, musicians etc. I think it being a Disney film is just, one of those things :P

Is it worth me going all the way to the apple store to see them, it wouldn't take that long by train as I live just outside London, just not sure about going on my own. Im also a huge Star Trek fan and she was in one of my favourite Voyager episodes, hmmm I can't decide. Might see what the hubby says as I'm supposed to be packing as we are off to Bournemouth tomorrow

just wondering (and I know its probably a long shot anyways) but has anyone ever tried contacting Disney US (details from the thread mentioned above) about shipping slips (and/or ameray's) to the UK?

Obviously the postage would be much more expensive, but if possible it may work out cheaper than importing.....

Either way I'm going to contact them as I've ended up with the UK Peter Pan as due to HMV/Play's recent issues I can no longer trade for the US version as originally planned and as its not one of my favourite Disney movies I'm reluctant to sell it and re-buy the US version for just the slip (I already have the DVD as well so I'd literally just be doing a switch for the slip and not the slip + DVD as usual)

Then again, I'd prefer the additional extras, but I'm sure they'd end up on youtube so its not a dealbreak either....hmmm

shame its released so much later than the US.
I watched it before xmas and although its not an xmas movie, it certainly had a christmassy feel what with all the snow/ice in the Winter Wood's.

Tis a lovely movie IMO. On par with the first tinkerbell, only with improved CGI animation

Thanks

I dunno. So long as you've paid for the blu-ray I think you should be entitled to the DMR points, regardless of which country you purchased it from as Disney still get a bit of profit from you (obviously only with brand new ones, not a second hand ebay one as we cant expect Disney to dish out points twice for both people that own the same copy when only one gave money to Disney)

But to refuse giving points if they are absent from a redeemed movie IS fair enough IMO.
So long as you've paid money to Disney then you should fairly be allowed points, after all, your adding to their profit and the points are a nice incentive.

I dont find it cheeky to ask Disney for US points if you've paid outright.
They were kind and fair enough to grant me 900 points for a batch of movies I got last yeah . Got points for Pocahontas, Rescuers (double packs), Aristocats, and Meet the Robinson's / Chicken Little / Bolt all in 3D (I think)...there were a few more I'd sent pictures of the titles /codes and argued the 'superior/unavailable US releases vs UK releases.
They did say the US releases werent eligible (obv) but as a 'good will gesture' they will grant me them but I think it was probably because of the amount of blu's I'd bought, clearly a big fan spending big money lol.

Plus you can bet I'm going to be cheeky and ask them again when I get the new wave of US releases this year. There's already 6 on my list (Peter Pan, Monsters in 3D, Wreck it Ralph, Mulan/Brother Bear/Hunchback double packs)

I'd highly recommend any/everyone do the same. The worst they can do is give us the points or if we're lucky enough, they may even take note we're unhappy with the lesser releases they've been dishing out over here.
I think Lady and the Tramp and Tarzan were the last (and only 2 from last year) UK Disney I purchases (recent xmas gifts aside that it). All my other's were US trades/imports (If I recall right there were 15 US purchases last year, or 13 new ones if you dont count POTC 1 and Sleeping beauty steel's I finally managed to obtain via trade)

anyways, rant over

I dunno, I reckon I'm gonna get turned down when I ask again...but that wont stop me bugging them with each US import

I'm not trying to start an argument here, but why shouldnt they be entitled to DMR points if they have purchased a new Disney blu-ray? (just curious, as you can see above I'm believe they SHOULD be entitled to the DMR points.)

The 3D supersets all tend to but the same size as the standard UK cases but a tad more rounded on the spine (not that you see it as they all come with slip's)

dont think you'll get it fro so few points. Plus, isnt it vaulted now (or about to be around easter? )



Talking of points, has anyone enquired about DMR points for Disney Blu's from other countries than US (I've got 3 of the German Pixar steel's with points and I'm thinking of being cheeky and seeing if I can swing a few more points for them....it would be super cheek of me though as I've got just over 2000 points and have had since before last summer despite redeeming 2 titles back in November am just a greedy bugger now )

The only problem with getting a slipcover from the US for your UK version of Peter Pan is that the US covers are thinner, and so the slipcover wouldn't fit in a UK case. Unless you buy one of the thinner cases for it.

then you have a problem of the amerays cover being too bit for the slimmer amery. the spine would bleed over onto the front and back cover and you'd have to trim the edges near the opening of the case so it's all out of whack
