Wal-Mart HD DVD refund
Bargain retailer Wal-Mart has joined the ranks of corporations attempting to appease buyers of HD DVD players, which are now obsolete and faced with an increasingly dwindling movie supply. The company is offering refunds to anyone who bought an HD DVD player on or following November 1st of last year, with or without original packaging. People must, however, return the player by April 30th, and bring with them their original receipt.
Wal-Mart's move comes a few weeks after a similar move by Best Buy. Unlike the Wal-Mart offer though, Best Buy customers are only receiving $50 gift cards for players bought before February 23rd, and the cards will only be mailed out on May 1st to warranty or Reward Zone customers.
