Panasonic Free Avatar 3D Blu-ray Offer Expanded & Extended

Posted March 2, 2011 08:28 AM by Juan Calonge

Blu-ray 3DPanasonic 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.

Qualifying models include: player models DMP-BDT310, DMP-BDT210, DMP-BDT215, DMP-BDT110 and DMP-BDT115; and home theater system models SC-BTT770, SC-BTT370, SC-BTT270, SC-BTT268 and SC-BTT273.

You must fill out and return a rebate form, along with a copy of your sales receipt of the eligible model with the purchase price circled, as well as the UPC code and serial number cut from the product carton. To receive the disc, you must have purchased the device between the dates of March 1, 2011 and February 29, 2011.

This new time limit jives with the information from a Panasonic UK representative late last year, confirming that the Avatar 3D exclusivity period ran until February 2012 (see Blu-ray.com, December 14, 2010).

The marketing for 3D is all backwards. More 3D hardware would be sold if the manufacturers subsidized the cost of 3D BDs. Said another way, if it cost me far far less to purchase a 3D BD than a 2D BD, I must just consider some buying some 3D hardware.

I just don't see 3D Blu Ray in the home to be as successfull as Blu Ray is and I hope people don't get confused. The upside to this is that the price of regular Blu Ray discs are lower. I am usually an early adopter of technology but don't see the value of upgrading to 3D while there are very few (and very expensive) BD titles available. BTW Avatar in 3D Blu Ray is a great incentive for consumers however it makes more sense to have the disc available to the mass market and not just a buy in for Panasonic.

At least, Panasonic does make quality 3D player.

Real D 3D was intended by Cameron, Lucas...etc to be a theater-exclusive feature only. Something to differentiate going to the theater from our home theater (HD TV's and High Def Blu-ray video). But it backfired when the home theater industry started to embrace 3D. It was never intended for home, but it looks like it's TRYING to be successful.

I hope this will also apply to their 2011 plasmas line. Especially the VT30.

This suggests to me that 3D television sales are not going the way that the industry wants it to and bundling Avatar in 3D is a way for Panasonic to sell more of their TV's because they aren't selling.

With the price that avatar 3d is selling for you can basically get a free 3D bluray player

I bought the player when it first came out so I guess I don't have value to Panasonic.

The dates at the bottom of this announcement (1/2/11 - 3/26/11) are incorrect; everything on Amazon agrees with the dates at the top (3/1/11 - 2/29/12). That's important as I'm not planning on buying any new equipment till later in the year (when hopefully I'll have the moolah for it).

Methinks that 3D hardware sales at Panasonic aren't living up to the marketing department's projections.

(Face it. It may be benchmark 3D but it's not a great film).

I got mine last week. It came in quicker than any other mail-in deal I've ever done (2 weeks rather than 6-8 weeks).

I thought this was an announcement for the 3D EXTENDED version of avatar. Lol
Wouldn't that be nice though. Hopefully they sell that one to the public when it is released.
I wonder when the extended 3D blu-ray will be released?

Marketing FAIL.. Glad to see people not getting this promotion. I hope Fox and Panasonic gets the message.

I received my Avatar 3D Blu-Ray disc in four weeks! I have to say that I did not buy my 65VT25 TV for the 3D but, I was pretty impressed by it when I tried it. I am looking to get some more 3D movies and I agree that it seems companies have pushed the hardware out faster than the media and that sucks. Not a very good marketing plan, which makes me wonder if the movie companies can catch up before a new 3D technology comes into play ie: 3D without glasses.

You know, if you want the 3D Blu-ray movies that are exclusive without having to keep on buying the starter kits, you could just buy them off of eBay.
