Best and Cheapest Way to Rent Movies

Out: Waiting in long lines at the local video store.
In: Choosing which movies to have sent to you from a
website in moments.
Out: Not finding the video you really wanted at the
video store, the whole reason you went there. That, and
having to find a "good enough" movie.
In: Choose the movie you really want among tens of
thousands of choice. The one you want, everytime.
These things describe why I switched to a DVD online
club. From my experience, everytime I went to the local
video Blockbuster, I never got the movie I really
wanted. The new releases were always out for weeks, and
you had to practically stalk the store to get one when
it came back in. That, and recently I had the urge to
watch an old movie, Karate Kid 1 (the original where he
learned karate). After going there a couple of times, I
found out someone had kept the video out and maybe at
some point they'd get a new one in as the person decided
to keep it apparantly. Ok, so I went to Walmart, but the
movie wasn't there. So it comes down to I have to order
one in from
Amazon.com it seems if I want to watch it. I never
quite took to Netflix after my credit card number got
stolen years ago and that's what the person did, they
ordered videos from Netflix. So, recently I came across
this place called Intelliflix and I never went back to
Blockbuster again. The old movie was great to see again.
That's why I chose to change to a DVD online club,
but everyone has their own reasons. I have compiled
together a list of all the great things about switching
to a DVD online club since some you don't realize until
after you switch, like a bonus:
* No late fees or return dates. While this is true
about Blockbuster now (if you don't count the restocking
fee) , it is 100% true about these DVD online clubs.
* Great for old movies or unusual, lesser-known
movies. This was very true in my case, and I'm sure it
has been with other people as well.
* The movies you really want are actually there and
ready to rent now. Plenty of movies to go around,
something you can't get in a little store.
* Delivered to your door. You can't get any easier
than this! What you want, delivered right to you in no
* Fast, free delivery, usually in 1 day from my
experience. Some DVD online clubs get the movies to you
faster than others. The biggest DVD online club is not
Blockbuster or Netflix. There is one that has many, many
more distribution centers, meaning you get the video
much faster to your door.
* Free shipping both to your home and also back to
the DVD online club. The only fees are the low monthly
* 3-4 videos out a a time. Once you watch a video,
pop it back in the mail, and in a couple of days you get
your next video choice at your door.
I used to spend way more money in the local video
store than I do for my DVD online club monthly
subscription. Heck, I spend more driving to work and
back on just 3 of the days than I do on my subscription.
The difference is, now I actually get to watch what I
want, when I want it. Seems simple, but when you're
spending your hard-earned money, you should be able to
at the least get the movie you really want. Now, I do
have to say one DVD online club stands above the rest,
both in having a cheaper price, a bigger selection, and
much faster shipping, but I won't mention it in this
article as I'm focusing on the DVD online club market in
general and why it's a blessing. You can watch literally
any movie you want one after another. I usually have a
pile of 3 videos on top of the tv, so I can't even
remotely watch them as fast as I can get them. But I do
get to see what I want now, not what I'm stuck with. Wax
on .. wax off!
