Any of you still have DVDs from Netxlix that you never returned?
I’ve got a couple - Mr. Mom and 13 Ghosts.

Send them back. They'll send you two more.

Netflix's deal was all about you NOT sending the movies back.

Netflix relied on people being lazy.

You could keep 3 DVDs for 2 months and Netflix would be happier than a pig in mud. Charging you $30 for 3 DVDs.

Never once did you ever get an email, hey you forgot to return your DVD!

But on the flip-side if you were a voracious renter/returner, they'd act like they didn't get your DVDs for a week. Oh you're on the 3 DVD plan? Yeah, we find that you're renting too much.

You could put all the DVDs in a pouch together and they'd send you a notice, we've received Gigli but not Showgirls or Striptease.

I never once had that problem and me and my ex were watching a couple movies every few days.

I don't think I ever used it to get mainstream stuff, it was always obscure shite from my childhood like Zubilee Zoo and Superboy because you couldn't find it anywhere else

I did and one day got a letter in the mail saying you are getting two free months free from Netflix due to some class-action lawsuit somebody filed.

This was in their infancy; and were found to deliberately be lying to the customer about when they received your DVDs.

Maybe due to low inventory or just didn't want people renting 20 movies a month but it was a real thing.

I havent gotten actual discs from them in years, but I used to get 3 at a time, rip them, and send them back the same day. Every 4 or 5 days I'd had 3 more show up at the house.

About a dozen years ago or so, I had the 5 DVD plan. I was working 2nd shift somewhere 3-11. I would get my mail at 11am. Watch a movie then return it to the post office on my way to work.

Then watch a movie after work.

I think I did that for about 3 months straight

I still have the DVD plan (along with streaming).

Every time that I find that a film isn’t available to stream on my multiple services, I put it on my DVD que.

Once or twice a week I’ll watch a DVD. Their turnaround time is still top notch, even with the COVID mail delays.

I still have Aguirre, the Wrath of God that I didn’t realize I still had till a couple of years after cancelling the dvd service. Oddly enough, they never charged me for it.
