My husband and I have been using Netflix for a couple of years now. For those who haven’t looked at it, it works like this. You pay a monthly fee depending on how many movies you want to have out at a time. You request your movies, and the american netflix mails them to you. You keep them as long as you want. When you want another movie, you simply mail a movie back (shipping is free), and they send you the next movie on your list.
We use the 3 movie plan. That way, unless we go on a movie watching binge over the weekend, we always have at least one disk in the house to watch (with one on the way back to Netflix and another on the way to us). Depending on your movie watching habits, you can have a plan with between 1 and 5 movies at a time. You can even have more than one list. For example: you can have one list for your kids and one for you, so that if your kids don’t return a movie, it doesn’t affect your ability to get your next movie. Just assign however many from your monthly subscription you want to go to each list.
Netflix has a huge catalog of movies and should you want a movie they don’t have, assuming it has been released on DVD, you can request it and they’ll order it. The few times we’ve wanted something that wasn’t on their catalog, they had it within a month of us requesting it. They also have a huge number of TV shows on DVD. It’s gotten to where I can’t stand to watch shows at broadcast because the commercials annoy me so much *laughs*.
So, if you want to try Netflix, here’s your chance to do so for free. You can always get ShowBox app or Hulu, but if you’re looking for more variety, Netflix is the best. I received 4 codes from Netflix worth a free month of Netflix. If you would like to try Netflix out, send me an e-mail (points to the sidebar) and I’ll reply with the free month code. I only have 4 codes, so it’s first come, first serve.
Disclaimer: I get a free extra disc above our usual subscription for each free trial signed up for. Not a biggee, but want to be upfront. It has no bearing on this review. We love Netflix anyway.
