Criterion Blu-Ray Upgrade Program

Update: I was perhaps overly impressed by this. I am keeping it posted, but with a retraction. It's not such a great deal. Criterion is still a great collection.

Okey folks. This rocks.

Criterion features some of the most important films ever made, and have started releasing Blu-Ray. They have an upgrade from DVD program. Their site here, copied for your convenience.

28. I want to replace my Criterion Collection DVDs with new Blu-ray editions. Do you have an upgrade program?

We offer a $20 Blu-ray upgrade program for customers who have already bought the equivalent edition on DVD. Just mail your disc, along with a check or money order for $20 (plus $5 shipping and handling), made payable to the Criterion Collection, to:

The Criterion Collection
Attn: Jon Mulvaney
215 Park Avenue South, Fifth Floor
New York, NY 10003

You can also pay by PayPal by making a payment to (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover welcome). Please include a printout of your Paypal receipt with your disc.

Be sure to include your U.S. or Canadian mailing address inside the package, as we cannot ship outside North America. Please also include your e-mail address in case we need to contact you. You can send in your disc for exchange anytime, but we won’t be sending out the Blu-ray discs until their release dates.

If you exchange multiple DVD editions at the same time, you only need to pay for shipping once. But your order will not be shipped until all the Blu-ray discs have been released.
We’ll mail the Blu-ray disc in a sleeve, and you’ll be able to place the new disc in your existing packaging. This offer only applies to “like” editions. For example, you can return disc 1 of the rerelease of The Third Man but not the earlier, out-of-print edition.

If you have any questions about the Blu-ray upgrade offer, please e-mail Jon Mulvaney at We reserve the right to change or discontinue this program at any time.

My disclaimer: Check their site, since they can change the program.

I wouldn't bother. Many of their Blu-rays can be found for $20 and change on Amazon.

I'll keep my copy of Man Who Fell To Earth thank you.

You know... I was just reading it again. It does kinda suck. I thought it was $20 off the Blu-Ray. Damn dyslexia and ADD!
