Saving money should be the name of the game when it comes to college. I find that one of the best hobbies when it comes to keeping myself entertained at college is simply by renting a DVD. Today, I’m going to show you how you can save money on your next DVD rental.
Look for a RedBox in your area
RedBox is a new hit and it’s by far my number one favorite. I’m not sure if you’ve seen them yet but they are the little red kiosks located in Wal-Marts, McDonalds, Grocery Stores and more. Look for one in your area and check it out. If you do decide that you want to rent from this service, you’ll find out that it’s only $1/day to rent a DVD, you can’t beat that bargain. The cool thing about RedBox is that you can rent movies for free on Mondays. All you need to do is head on over to RedBox.com and apply for their text message service.
Sign up for NetFlix
Blockbuster is a thing of the past and no one wants to walk in there and pay $4 for a DVD rental when you can pay $10 a month with NetFlix and rent unlimited DVDs. Not only that, you’ll also see a bigger selection compared to Blockbuster. NetFlix is great for those students that watch a lot of DVDs each month. If you even find the $10 package to be a little high, get a few friends together and go from there. Also, if you find yourself with a Xbox 360, check out the online streaming service on your dashboard.
Go to your local library
Everyone always forgets this one when it comes to DVDs. My local library has a great selection of DVDs and while they generally don’t have a lot of copies, I can usually find something that I enjoy. The next time you want a movie, stop by your local library and see what they have to offer. As long as you’re a resident of the county you’re in, you’ll be able to rent from them, usually at no cost.
Try some of these tips when it comes down to renting a DVD. There’s no reason you should step foot into a Blockbuster or pay $30 for a brand new DVD. Save your money and try some of the tips mentioned above to save money today.
