What You'll Get
Dozens of would-be blockbuster films starring guinea-pig heroines and old retainer monsters miss their shot at an Oscar each year simply because they were shot on Dad’s 1985 camcorder. Wow the Academy with a digitized version of your masterpiece theater with today’s Groupon: for $25, you can rescue five old videotapes from oblivion by transferring them to DVD at Got Memories in Tempe. The deal’s value includes a $39.99 videotape-transfer set-up fee and, at $10 per videotape, it comes to an $89.99 combined value.
DVD transfers of home videos are the easiest way to preserve precious memories from vacations, reunions, and belly-flop tournaments without resorting to detailed dioramas. Got Memories can transfer home movies stored on any consumer format, including VHS, VHS-C, Video 8, Hi8, Digital 8, Mini DV, and more, to an easy-to-use DVD format that can be uploaded, copied, and edited to your heart’s content. The magnetic strips inside the average VHS tape begin to degrade over time, especially due to heavy viewing, temperature differences, and asteroid impacts. Call ahead to schedule an appointment or drop off your five videotapes at the store, where tapes are whisked away to their very own makeover-montage musical interlude. Transfers are done on-site by highly trained video-transfer gurus who forgo nutrition and sunlight while memories are transferred to a DVD, which features an inkjet-printable surface and contains chapter points inserted every five minutes. Your new DVD and original tapes are then returned to you for instant viewing.
DVDs from Got Memories can be duplicated on your home computer, and the knowledgeable staff is able to offer advice on DVD editing and uploading. Got Memories will happily answer questions you may have about any step in the process, and there is a strict 100% satisfaction guarantee. Videotapes can be dropped off in any condition, but tapes with excessive damage due to antiquity or games of VHS Frisbee may not be able to be transferred or can incur an extra fee not covered with the transfer set-up fee.
Only non-copyrighted tapes of up to two hours in length can be transferred.

About Got Memories
With each passing year, countless hours of precious home movies deteriorate. And, since Aisenma the Memory Grinder was defeated in 1916, this loss can only be attributed to formats that weren't designed to last: 8mm, Super 8, 16mm, and VHS. Enter Got Memories, which can convert all of the aforementioned formats, and others, to DVD. Digitizing these films and tapes not only prevents their content from fading over time, but also makes it easier to import content to a computer for editing or uploading to social media. Besides digitization, Got Memories also rents film and LCD projectors and even provides professional-quality in-house video editing.
