How do you save more when you rent a video online?
Create only one account per household
Even if all family members have different interest and viewing habits. Instead of having one movie rental plan for each family member, create only one account to accommodate everyone. Keep in mind that you should start with a plan that offers you more unlimited rentals first so that you can rent 5 or 6 movies at a time so that everyone in the family can get his/her favorite movie.
Limited vs. Unlimited Rentals
Is unlimited rental plan always better than limited rental plan?
Decide whether you need to have more or less rentals each month. Generally
speaking, the more rentals at a time, the more expensive the plan is. So, if you only have time to watch 2 movies a month,
get a plan that offers only 2 rentals a month. Chances are the 2 movie rental plan will be much cheaper than 3 at a time
unlimited monthly rental. One way to figure out a better plan is to do a simple math - just divide the monthly fees by the number of movies you (or the entire family) watch
each month and see what the cost of each movie is. That's a very easy way to choose the right plan for you.
Do you know you can pause or cancel the service anytime you want?
Unlike cable or satellite TV offers which requires you to sign a 1-year contract for delivering TV/Movie programs to your home, you can
pause your movie rental service if you decide not to watch any movies the next month. Or you don't want to continue the service, simply
cancel the membership, there is no early termination or cancellation fee.
Which service provider to choose?
Consumers get more choices these days when it comes to entertainment. There are Netflix, Blockbuster, and a number of
other startups that offers movie rentals by mail. Many of the offer free trials.
