Jump to: Photos Worth Saving
Today's Groupon gets you $100 worth of photo and video digitalization services for $40 from ScanDigital. The celluloid specialists at ScanDigital turn grainy 3x5 photos and dented VHS tapes into dependable digital files that fill the future with the pleasant retrospections and introspections of a warm and wonderful past. Memories are safe with ScanDigital: it's processed more than five million images in the last 2.5 years, making them the biggest digitalization service in the country.
With $100 worth of services, you can digitalize roughly 200 photos, 170 negatives, 145 slides, seven 3’’ 8mm film reels, or five videocassettes; mix any of the memory mediums ScanDigital services (click here to see all the formats). The digitization process includes photo color correction, and cleaning and prepping film to ensure the highest possible transfer quality. Sending memories to ScanDigital is fast and simple.

Digitally backing up photo and video archives is invaluable for photographers, videographers, or people with photos and videos. Someday soon, the home videos of your first-grade choir solo will warp, and your sweet warbles will become the terrifyingly chipmunk drones of your fifth-grade rock show of rocks. Significant moments seem insignificant when their video playback quality is significantly obstructed or when their photos are stained and faded by Father Time’s clumsy coffee-spills.

- childhood Polaroid of you, in which a cougar appears to be eating your stuffed moose
