  • Blu-Ray Lightning McQueen - They just keep sending them to me

    So I ordered the "free" limited edition blue Lightning McQueen car (through Disney Movie Rewards when you buy Cars on blu-ray). I use the term "free" loosely as they charge $3.50 shipping & handling.

    Well, imagine my surprise when they sent me two. I figure, no big deal. Disney can afford it after all. It's just one of life's little gifts.

    But then, a few days later, two more arrive.

    And a day after that, another two arrive. I now have six.

    I'm wondering if it will stop? I actually find it extremely amusing.

    I took pictures just so I could show my friends...

        Well, when I didn't get another car yesterday, I thought the well had dried up. And then, car number seven arrives today! This actually makes checking the mail somewhat exciting

          That is cool luck, BC_DisneyGeek. I wished I'd bought a PS3 earlier. I finally made the decision to get one but only after the 5 free Blu-Rays offer ended. So I'm in a holding pattern, hoping they bring the promo back for soon for tax time or something. Congrats tho'!

            I got the pins, but I got some kind of error that said I couldn't get the car after I redeemed the pins offer. It's a bit disappointing for me, but I do find the number of cars they have sent you hilarious.

              You're so lucky! I wanted to get one of those but never did. Care to spare one? Name your price.

                  I will vouch for Coheteboy. He's a great person to do business with.

                    Well, I haven't decided what to do with them yet, so I'm not offering any up for sale or trade yet. And, there's always the chance that Disney will come after me for them, lol.

                    They still won't stop. Another two arrived today!

                        That's funny you're being sent all these Lighting McQueens.

                        But remember this one word: eBay. Keep the extras in good condition and wait a year or two. Sell 'em on eBay and make some $$$!

                        You can write Disney to tell them to stop sending them to you, but somehow, you might "forget." If Disney doesn't come after you in a while to get them back, I really wouldn't worry. But if Mickey Mouse knocks on your door...

                        EDIT: Keep some in the original packaging. They'll be worth more!

                          I was about to ask if you got another car in the mail today, but I forgot it was President's Day.

                              If everything is coming your way, your probably in the wrong lane. (What lane do I get in to keep Vmk open?)

                                It's not funny for us that did everything correctly and now won't even be getting one of them. Disney sent me an email saying there was an "overwhelming response" and that's why they ran out of the cars. Uh, don't you think you ran out because you sent multiple cars to those that should only have gotten one?

                                I'm not bitter...really, I'm not. But it sure wouldn't been sweet to have one of them.
                                Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy.

                                  I didn't get any more. It stopped with nine. My friend, who I had been sending these photos to, just forwarded the e-mail:

                                  "Dear Disney Movie Rewards Member,

                                  Recently you were offered the opportunity to receive a Blu Lightning McQueen
                                  car for entering the Disney Movie Rewards Magic Code found inside Pixar's
                                  Cars on Blu-ray Disc.

                                  Due to an overwhelming response to this promotion and the limited
                                  availability of inventory we regret to inform you we will be unable to
                                  fulfill your order. Your credit card has not been charged the $3.50
                                  shipping and handling fee.

                                  Again, we apologize for this matter and value your loyalty.

                                  Disney Movie Rewards Consumer Relations Team"

                                  Now I feel guilty, even though it wasn't my fault! I'll definately be giving my friend one of them.

                                  I'm sure I can part with a few more of them, for a reasonable trade. Once I figure it out, I'll send a PM to those who expressed interest.

                                      BC-DG,
                                      If you EVER consider selling one of your special Blu-Ray cars, you would make my husband the happiest guy in the world! He is a complete Disney "Cars" fanatic (though he says it's our 2 year old son who's addicted to ALL the characters! But, seriously, it would be a wonderful Father's Day present!
