Digital movies are a great way to enjoy all your favorite films anytime, anywhere. With digital copies, you don’t have to worry about losing or damaging a physical copy, and you can easily watch them on your computer, phone, or TV. Plus, digital movies are often cheaper to buy and own than physical copies. Many retailers offer discounts on digital movies, and you can often find sales or special deals on popular titles. Plus, with streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, you can get access to a vast library of movies and TV shows for a low monthly price. All in all, digital movies are a convenient and cost-effective way to enjoy your favorite films.
I love watching movies but I do not like paying the high prices for dvds or blu-rays. Did you know that you can get digital movies for much less than hard copies and sometimes even FREE. Plus digital movies are better, here’s why:
- You can watch them anywhere you have an internet connection
- They never get scratched or broken
- You can watch on almost any device
- You will never lose them
- They are cheaper
Let me show you how to build an online movie collection for FREE or very cheap!
Storing your Movies
First of all, you will need an account to store your movies. By far the most popular place is VUDU. Vudu is the largest digital movie database and is free to use as a library. Many of you probably already have a vudu account. To open a Vudu account, visit Vudu.com or click here.
After you have an account, you can start acquiring movie codes to redeem. When you enter a code, you then own the movie and you can watch it as much as you want with no ads or commercials. You can also download it to your pc or phone to watch later.
Another cool site is Movies Anywhere. Movies anywhere lets you connect all your accounts such as iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, Xfinity, Google Play, Microsoft Movies & TV & FandangoNOW and see all your movies in one place.
Movies Anywhere is a digital movie service that allows you to access your film collection on multiple devices. By linking your various digital movie accounts (such as iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play), you can watch your movies on any device that supports the Movies Anywhere app. This means you can start a movie on your phone and finish it on your TV, or watch a movie on your tablet while on the go. Movies Anywhere also allows you to share your movie collection with friends and family by inviting them to join your Movies Anywhere account. With Movies Anywhere, you can easily enjoy all your digital movies in one place, no matter where you are.
Digital Movie Codes
To redeem digital movies on Vudu and Movies Anywhere, you will need to enter a code. These codes are typically included with physical copies of movies, such as Blu-ray or DVD editions. When you purchase a physical movie with a code, you will receive a insert in the packaging with a unique code printed on it. To redeem the code and add the movie to your digital library, you will need to follow these steps:
- Go to the Vudu or Movies Anywhere website and sign in to your account.
- Click on the “Redeem” or “Code Entry” link (usually found in the account menu or under “My Collection”).
- Enter the code exactly as it appears on the insert. Be sure to include any dashes or other special characters.
- Click “Redeem” or “Submit” to add the movie to your digital library.
Once you have redeemed the code, the movie will be added to your account and you will be able to watch it on any device that supports Vudu or Movies Anywhere.
Where to Get Movie Codes
It is possible to buy digital movie codes online for a discounted price compared to buying physical copies such as DVDs or Blu-ray discs. There are several websites and online retailers that sell digital codes for movies at a discounted price. Some of these codes are for movies that are still in theaters, while others are for movies that have already been released on home video.
There are tons of places to get movie codes. Let me start with the free ways first.
Get Free Digital Movie Codes on Listia
Listia is a marketplace where can sell things for free. Everything is traded for credits and no money ever is involved. You can either sell your old stuff to get ink credits, or you can watch videos, complete surveys or offers to get credits. You’ll get 100 XNK just for signing up.
If you sell your old items on Lista, you can easily build up ink credits. If you don’t want to pay the shipping cost of sending an item to someone, you can also charge the winning bidder for shipping fees if you connect a paypal account.
Once you have some ink credits, search listia for “movie codes” or “vudu codes” to get movies to add to your collection.
It is really easy to build up credits on Listia and they have many movies available. You could realistically build up a large movie collection without spending any money if you put in the time.
You can sign up at Listia here
Cheap Digital Movie Codes at Code Sites
Another way of getting movies on the cheap is at code sites. There are a couple sites out there that search around for the cheapest prices out there that I use.
- Ultraviolet Movie Cinema
To use the site, all you do is go here. In the searchbox, enter the title of the movie your looking for and click on it”s name.
Then it will display all the sites that have the movie in stock and the prices. You can then purchase the movie and add the code to vudu and you will then own the movie forever. If you rent movies, your usually paying around $5 a rental…. so why not pay $5 and own it so you can watch it again one day.
Another site I use to compare prices is UVSpider which works the same way.
There are also tons of code sites that sell codes. I would stick to the ones that offer instant delivery. Here are a few of my favorites:
Cheap Movies at Dollar Stores/ Walmart
Cheap movies are popping up at discount stores like Dollar Tree for only $1! You will want to look for movies that say they have the Digital version included with the UV symbol like the one pictured below.
You can then open the movie and get the paper with the code add the digital movie to your collection. Then sell the physical movie or put it on Listia for a profit!
You can also look for codes at places like Flea Markets, Goodwill, Yard sales, etc. Many people don’t know what these codes are for so always check in the cases when you see movies for sale.
Free Movies Using VUDU Credits
Another way to get FREE and cheap movies is by using Vudu credits. You get them through various promotions that Vudu offers on retail products, usually at Walmart stores. They sometimes offer promos online with a FREE $5 credit. They have also been offering credits when you watch free movies on their site.
Once you score some Vudu credits, you can use them to buy movies on Vudu.com. They have sales often and sell movies for $5 or less so you can always find a deal to use them on.
VUDU Disc to Digital
If you have a bunch of old DVD and blu-ray movies laying around. You can also convert them to digital with the Vudu app. All you need to do is download the app and scan your movies. For $2-$5 to convert them to digital SD or HDX. Once you convert them to digital, you can sell them or put them on Listia!
About Digital Movie Codes
Here is some info you will need to know when looking for codes.
Any movie that comes with a digital code will have one of these papers inside with the ‘code”
If you get a code online, they usually send you code or the image like shown above. You can then go to the redeem page on Vudu to enter it to get your movie.
Comes come in different formats: SD, HDX, and 4K
- SD means standard definition (not HD)
- HDX is high definiation
- 4K or UHD is 4K resolution for 4K tvs
I have a 4K tv but I usually get HD codes because they are cheaper.
Disney, 4K, and new movies usually cost more. When movies are newly released, they usually cost more. If you wait a few weeks the demand will die down and they become cheaper. Older movies can become really cheap, like a $1.
For Apple Users, you can also buy or look for iTunes codes. If you connect your vudu and iTunes accounts with Movies Anywhere, all your iTunes movies will also appear in your Vudu account.
Keep in mind that when buying digital codes online, it’s important to do your research and make sure you’re buying from a reputable source. Some codes may be stolen or invalid, so it’s important to be cautious when making a purchase.
