Duplicate Blu-rays from 4K

What do people do with their duplicate Blu-rays that they get when they buy 4K Blu-rays? I have loads sitting around in their cases as throwing them away seems like a waste.

Music magpie, although you'll get pennies for them.

I don't think I explained it very well. I meant that when you buy a 4K they come with a normal Blu-ray disk as well. I assume you can't give those to charity shops or sell them to music magpie, as the cases say 4k on them.

You could flog them on Ebay or Facebook - you just have to make it clear that you're selling the disc only, no sleeve or case. Or offer them to workmates or friends, give them to randoms in the street.

Alternatively, send them to Dead Yankee, c/o The Orkneys as he recently lost all his.

IMO the 'normal' blu-ray discs are useful. Many households (including mine) are not ALL 4K; If your 4K setup is being used by the other half or the kids and you want to watch a particular movie at the same time, then you can do so on an older BD & HDTV unit using the 'normal' BD disc.

Only 4K discs are starting to come out regularly. My Argo and The Martian have no regular BDs in tow.
