Magnavision followed suit - I saw an Astro shop placing "Buy One, Take One" stickers on NEARLY ALL Magnavision DVDs, with very few exceptions (American Gangster, Cloverfield).

Happy Viva/Magnavision bargain hunting, people.

astro and odyssey branch at sm north the block has this promo. titles as new as hitman and lions for lambs (550) are at buy 1 take 1 promo. promo mechanics is buy 1 dvd, take 1 dvd of the same price or lower.

new releases not included.

i got POTC 1 and 2 at 350. yung part 3 out of stock :-\ but also included daw sa buy 1 take 1.

old titles na ni mark down na nila before then minark up ulit, then up again, then ginawang every weekend sale (if you guys still remember those) and now buy 1 take 1 na.

also saw "sunshine" wala pa ako nito ;D sayang wala na ako mapiling ka take 1.

Kasama ba boxset?  That's what I want...  Prison Break kasi mahal 3000 each, but kung kasama sa buy1, take 1.  Puwede na rin (although mas mura pa rin R1, if you don't consider s&H)...

I read it again tonight and my impression was if you buy one you can take one of the same or lower price. Just slightly confusing because of the way it's written.

I think it states "Free DVD" if you get another dvd with the same price or higher.....parang ganon..... ;D

That's basically it.  Free DVD if you get another with the same price or higher.  You pay for 'the same or higher'...not the Free DVD.  It would be illogical otherwise.

yup hitman included. kaso kaunti lang yung titles priced at 550 lions for lambs and POTC 3. buti nalang di ko binili yung hitman and POTC3 when it was first released! bilis kasi mag sale ng DVDs!

The stickers say something like: "Buy 1 Take 1 DVD of the same or higher price"

What's up with that?  ???

i also told the saleslady that their sticker is confusing.
the sticker says: FREE DVD if you buy DVD of the same or higher price. (in bold yung FREE DVD)

feeling ko yung DVD na may sticker na ito comes free - if you buy one of the same or higher price. ganun yung ibig nilang sabihin. nevertheless, to make it simple for them Buy1 Take1 of the same price. kse lugi ka naman kung kukunin mong FREE DVD yung mas lower price di ba.

kaya if you get a P350 priced DVD, make sure to get another one of the same price para hindi ka lugi.
if you buy P550 and a P350 - the dvd with P350 price becomes the free DVD.

pero to make things simpler, they can just put the Buy1 Take1 sticker, understood na ng buyers yun... kesa dun sa FREE DVD sticker nila na confusing yung nakasulat... ??? :D :D :D

anyway, ang importante may sale na naman.... and i think MAGNA will also have an answer to this VIVA sale... kaya... ubusan na naman ng pera ito!

happy weekend...

I think the ones with FREE DVD labeled on the cases are the ones included in the sale. You can buy lets say viva's hitman at 550 and one of the 299, you will pay 550 for the two discs. I think thats how it works, you pay whichever is higher. I may be wrong.

yep... one DVD comes free... but you pay for the higher cost. so when you get your free dvd, make sure its of the same cost para hindi lugi. unless otherwise, you really cant find one of your liking.

Usually it's phrased this way: Buy 1, Take 1 of another (DVD) of the same or lower price.

I guess is what's causing the confusion.

sirs, ngayon na lang hindi confusing kse napagusapan na dito sa forum.

but when you see it first... mapapa-isip ka din.
at first you would think na you can get a FREE DVD of the same price or of a higher price.
syempre hindi puede yun. logically, you can get something of the same price OR of a lower price.

that means yung DVD na may sticker na ganun - it becomes FREE kung bibili ka ng same price or ng higher price. ganun siguro ang talagang gusto nilang ibig sabihin... which ganun naman ang nagyayari na nga.

okay na yung "Buy1 Take1" sticker na nilalagay nila dati... alam na ng buyers yun na... you can get 1 dvd of the same price (or lower price kung gusto mo).
Title: Re: Magnavision & Viva: Buy One, Take One (June 2008)

this was actually their intention given that their sticker had emphasis on the "FREE DVD" phrase.. they should have just made it "Get this FREE if you buy DVD of the same or higher price!"

According to an Astro Galleria saleslady, you cannot mix & match Viva & Magnavision titles. Viva titles have their own buy 1 take 1 promo & Magnavision titles a separate buy 1 take 1 promo.

Got CJ7 & Saawariya from the Magna titles.

Actually, that sort of explains the difference in terminologies (Buy One, Take One vs. Free DVD with Every Purchase of...) that some of you find confusing. Can you imagine a sales rep trying to explain to customers who don't read PinoyDVD the different companies/policies if they all had similar stickers?

"Bakit hindi puwede, pareho naman may 'Buy One, Take One' sticker itong dalawa. Dinadaya niyo kami!"  ;D

I agree. Papaano nga naman kung napadaan ka lang at nakita mo yung Buy 1 Take 1 promo nila nung nandun ka na sa counter they would tell that Magna is for Magna and Viva is Viva lang. Eh nakuha mo 1 Magna and 1 Viva. WTF!?! Syempre disappointed ang customer nun.  Imbes na bumili baka umalis na lang yun. At least we have the luxury of discussing this matter here which helps us know how their promo goes. Hopefully next time baguhin nila yung mga stickers na nilalagay nila.

Post by: John E. on Jun 07, 2008 at 03:44 AM

for one the sticker on the viva titles are different from the magna titles. two they are on separate shelving. viva grouped into one and magna grouped into another.

"free DVD (pertaining to the DVD where this sticker is on.) if you buy DVD of the same or higher price". i think it is also common sense that they will not give away a free dvd with a higher price point when you buy a lower priced dvd.

just my 2 cents.
Title: Re: Magnavision & Viva: Buy One, Take One (June 2008)
Post by: dyerds on Jun 07, 2008 at 10:14 AM
Kung nasa loob ng store yung dvd na may sticker it would still be very confusing even though they have separate shelves if you're not really that observant. I agree that is really common sense that you need to pay the higher priced dvd and get the lowered one for free. Lugi naman sila siguro kung kukuha ka ng worth P175 tapos yung free mo worth P500+ or boxset.  :D ;D Anyway I'll drop by at SM MOA later to take advantage of this promo and see if it's really that confusing.  ;)

Got Lions for Lambs and Daywatcher for P550.00 at SM Davao.. Part ng Viva Sale.. Dito naman DVDs of the same price are taped together and sold as Buy 1 take 1.  Unfortunately, konti lang included sa sale.  I have to request the saleslady to exchange one DVD from another package for another DVD from another package but with the same price.  Hitman unfortunately is not included in the sale.   >:( >:( >:(

As stated,I don't find viva's wordings of the sale confusing, but if it did, and a customer asked a customer rep about it, then it would also served it purpose, as it gives the customer rep an opportunity to explain (and push) the sale to the customer.

BTW, Magnavision did repriced up a few of the items (from 299 - usually 199 on sale) to 375.  So on those titles, the discount is really minimal.

I got Unbreakable and AVP from the Buy 1 Take 1 promo. I also didn't find Viva's sticker confusing compare with Magna. Masyado kasi mahaba yung sa Magna and you need to analyze first what the message wants to convey.  ;D What I really found confusing is the Viva-Viva and Magna-Magna titles lalo na kung hindi ka aware. Magkakamali ka talaga kahit may sticker sya at pagdating mo sa counter you might end up paying for both items since 1 is Viva and 1 is Magna.

Btw there are some good titles not included in the Buy 1 Take 1 promo which is priced P150 - P175. I got Zodiac for only P150.  ;D

Rules:
Only dvd's with  Buy 1 Take 1 sticker are included in the promo
Viva-Viva or Magna-Magna titles only
Pay the higher priced dvd if you got two titles of different price

They have a better promo in Astro MOA.
Most Viva DVD's are 50% off so you don't have to buy two. Also there are a few items that are more than 50% off.
The ones i got were:

National Treasure 2 (2-disc) P275 (down from P750!)
Aliens vs Predator 2 (2disc with slipcase) P275 (down from P750!)
Gone Baby Gone P199 (down from P550)

Prices of dvd's range from P150-P199.

Sample of sale prices are Alvin & the Chipmunks, Rainman and Enchanted were all selling for P199/ea only.

They have a better promo in Astro MOA.
Most Viva DVD's are 50% off so you don't have to buy two. Also there are a few items that are more than 50% off.
The ones i got were:

National Treasure 2 (2-disc) P275 (down from P750!)
Aliens vs Predator 2 (2disc with slipcase) P275 (down from P750!)
Gone Baby Gone P199 (down from P550)

Is this promo still available  this weekend in MOA?

Many Magnavision titles that were originally 299, are repriced to 375 buy one take one daw.  But note that these 299 titles goes for 199 duing ordinary weekend or sale dates. 

Also while this Buy one Take One Magnavision is a Astro exclusive promo yata.  Since most Odyssey don't have it but have the same discs priced at 199 (and 150 during sale).  So this scheme (Magnavision's) is not as cheap as it seems.

For those on the lookout for good Buy One, Take One deals, the titles most recently added to this list are Bee Movie and Elizabeth: The Golden Age.

Two titles I bought at full price... but still haven't watched!  ::) >:(

Got the following from Astro SM Makati's Viva Blowout Caravan Sale this evening:

The Darjeeling Limited - Php 199
The Savages - Php 199
Tristan & Isolde - Php 199

If you're thinking of going to the Astro V-Mall Triple Threat Sale and plan on just buying Vivas (and you live nearer to the south), I suggest you just go to Astro SM Makati. They have more Viva titles available there. I forgot to ask, though, when the sale ends.

If you are in the Ortigas area you might want to check out the 9th floor of One San Miguel Avenue Bldg. There's a small Kiosk in the canteen selling Magna and Viva DVDs with the free DVD promo. I was able to get National Treasure 2 (2 disc CE) and Enchanted (w/ slipcase) for only 750.  ;D

The saleslady told me they're going to be there until tomorrow.

That's nice. But those two titles are already being sold at Php 275 in some Astro stores now (SM Makati, where there's an ongoing Viva Blowout Sale).
