Panasonic DMP-BDT220 Wifi Streaming 3D Blu-ray Player: Net $87.99 After $25 Amazon Credit

By Rachel Cericola

We love a good home theater deal. We love it even more when a good home theater deal gives something back. Double-whammy!

If you've been waiting to add a 3D-capabale Blu-ray player into your stack of AV goodies, Amazon has just the right offer to entice you into making that move. From now through September 29, 2012, Amazon will credit you back $25 when you buy Panasonic's DMP-BDT220 Integrated WiFi 3D Blu-ray DVD Player.

At last peek, Amazon had the player priced at just $112.99, which includes free shipping. After the $25 credit, that's like paying just $87 for this player. OK -- you can't apply the credit to this purchase, but you can use it to buy Blu-rays, 3D glasses, or even grocery items, if that's what you want. However, you want to use it is up to you. Just make sure to read all of the fine print before you order. Check out Amazon's main offer page:

The DMP-BDT220 is a nice little Blu-ray player. It supports 3D and 2D Blu-rays, as well as DVDs and CDs. It also includes Adaptive Chroma Processing for brighter colors and an overall better image. It also has WiFi support, which makes it easy to tap into those BD-Live extras or even the player's built-in access to VIERA Connect. That platform provides instant, on-screen access to services like Netflix, Amazon Instant Video, Hulu Plus, VUDU, Pandora, Facebook, and much more.

This player comes with a new touchscreen remote, but also works with Panasonic's free control app for iOS and Android devices. Other features include a 192kHz/32bit audio DAC (Digital Analog Converter) and decoding for high-def audio like DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD, as well as 2D-to-3D conversion, a Multi-User Mode, and DLNA support.

Just remember that you need to order this item directly from Amazon, not one of the retailer's third-party merchants. It's also important to know that this offer is not valid on 1-Click purchases. Once you place your order, the promotional credit should show up in your Amazon.com account within four days after processing is complete and the item ships.

Also, don't expect to order players for all of your friends and rack up the Amazon credit. First of all, the offer is limited to one per household. Also, that credit does expire. Read the fine print, people -- and read it fast. This offer is only good through September 29, 2012, or while supplies last.
