I saw where the Panasonic DMP-BDT210 was a good 3D Blu-ray player and found it yesterday at Best Buy on clearance. I saw the price and thought it was a good deal then I saw the little yellow sticker saying "Receive Avatar Blu-ray 3D by mail" and I thought .....whoo hoo

I asked the BB guy if this was still good and he said yea.

I have not opened the box yet and thought I'd check online to see what the details were and found out the deal ended Feb 29th 2012!!!!

I called Panasonic and Best Buy and they will not backdate it or honor it.

Panasonic has once again expanded its Panasonic has expanded its Avatar 3D Blu-ray promotion. Now, if you purchase a qualifying Panasonic 3D Blu-ray player or home theater system between March 1, 2011, and February 29, 2012, you can receive a bonus copy of Avatar on Blu-ray, exclusively from Panasonic, after mail-in rebate.

Should I keep the player and just suck it up on the NOT FREE Blu Ray disc or return it and look for a better 3D player? Why can't a company just include it in the box instead of making you mail off for it anyway?



stupid little yellow sticker!!!

I'd return it. I have one here and it sucks! I bought it for the Avatar too, a year ago. There are better players out there today.

I paid $120 for the 3D blu ray player.....should I return it and get a newer/better one? I saw a 320 panny with the slot loader but I'm not sure about that crazy remote.

I have a older Sony that will play a blu ray after I load a standard DVD so I do need a replacement player and I picked up the 3D because I just bought a Panasonic 65GT30
