Smart Move

This is one of a few examples where a Canadian retailer does something brilliant. Take those obsolete HD DVD players from your hands, give you $100 discount and get your buy those nowhere-to-go Blu-ray/HD DVD combo players. If only 10% HD DVD player owners do the trade-in, Future Shop can sell 3500 combo players. I think this number is still higher than its inventory level. In other words, it can effectively clear its hard-to-sell combo players while customers are praising the company. What a move!

Future Shop offers HD DVD trade-in

  1. 做得唔夠! 學吓人哋啦:
    Following a major Japanese consumer electronics chain and an offer in Germany, Sony Switzerland is now offering HD DVD owners to swap their player for $200 credit towards a Blu-ray player plus 6 free Blu-ray discs . Though, entry level Blu-ray players weren't really more expensive than HD DVD players before the latest price cuts made it to Europe.
