US retailer Best Buy is to give away $50 credit notes to anyone who bought into HD-DVD, according to this, an initiative likely to cost up to $10 million. Anyone that can provide a receipt saying they bought a now defunct HD-DVD player from the firm will be eligible for the gift.

Circuit City is also saying it’ll look after those stiffed by Toshiba on the whole HD-DVD “thing”, and will accept returns of HD-DVD players up to 90 days after purchase. We bet the UK retailers are clammering to offer similar deals. Or not.
