Old videos can be a great way to reminisce or to prove that you did not actually set fire to the toolshed during your grandparents' 50th anniversary. Look back on your innocence with this Groupon.
- $9.99 for $50 worth of VHS and film reel transfer services for online viewing, editing, and sharing. This can be used across several transactions.
The digitalization process begins on YesVideo's website, where customers select the formats and quantity of the videotapes or movie reels they want to submit. Videotapes in formats such as VHS and Betamax cost $14.99 per tape convert, and reels start at $8.99 apiece. Customers then ship their material to YesVideo where they will digitize the material and host it on free online account. From there, customers can access their material in one place, where it will be safely stored. Customers can also edit videos from their private account by adding a soundtrack, creating a highlight reel, adding chapter breaks, and more. Videos can then be safely and easily shared with friends and family via email, social media, mobile, or tablet.
Customers can return at any time to convert their footage to DVD for $9.99. The $50 promotional value does not have to be used at one time, so the balance remaining from transferring your videos to your YesVideo account can later be used to order DVDs or transfer more videos to your online account. Shipping cost is not included.
Old movies are full of treasured memories, and in some cases, literal treasure. When 90-year old Evelyn Weiner sent in her 16-millimeter film canister to YesVideo for digital conversion, a staff member discovered $3,100 in cash in the canister. The company quickly alerted Ms. Weiner of the bounty, which her late husband had stored away and forgotten. While YesVideo cannot promise such a dramatic financial return on investments, over one million families, along with major retailers such as Costco, Target, and Walmart have trusted YesVideo technicians to unearth and modernize priceless memories through mail-in conversion services. Films receive a digitized update as the team transforms VHS tapes and film reels before they deteriorate. Personalized DVDs with convenient chapter divisions last longer than VHS tapes and make it OK to finally feed the VCR peanut butter. Online galleries of the content can be shared through Facebook, Twitter, and other social-media sites.
