Groupon Gets Digital in Santa Barbara


Today's Groupon Deal of the Day for the Santa Barbara area is from ScanDigital:
Sophisticated scanners make sandwiching coworkers between two pieces of plate glass to preserve office-party memories a thing of the past. Take advantage of technological innovations with today's Groupon to ScanDigital. Choose between the following options:

For $40, you get $100 worth of digitization services.
For $115, you get $300 worth of digitization services.

Unlike a lunch sack filled with gummy worms in a postapocalyptic world, this Groupon cannot be used toward the purchase of hard drives or digital picture frames.

The celluloid specialists at ScanDigital have processed more than five million images since 2007, turning grainy 3"x5" photos and dented VHS tapes into dependable digital files that fill the future with images of a warm and wonderful past. With $100 worth of services, you can digitize roughly 200 photos, 175 negatives, 150 slides, six 3-inch 8mm film reels, or five videocassettes; mix any of the memory media of 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.

To start a safe, digital archive so home videos of first-grade choir solos don't turn into terrifying, chipmunk-attracting warbles, go online to fill out a form that generates a shipping label, and then mail the materials. After four or more weeks, depending on your order, you get back the original copies along with their new, high-quality clones on DVD, ensuring that significant moments aren't stained and faded by Father Time’s clumsy coffee spills.

Today's $100 Groupon can be applied toward a bulk order (1,000+ photos)—combining the Groupon discount with a $0.10-off-per-photo bulk discount—but only one Groupon may be applied with this option.

Please note that I am in no way affiliated with either Groupon or ScanDigital. I'm just passing on what looks like an interesting deal for Santa Barbara-area genealogists.

Thanks for sharing this great deal. It may be just the impetus I need to get those slides scanned!
