I see Netflix advertised constantly on TV. It sounds convenient, but I want to talk to somebody who actually uses that service and find out how they like it. Do you use Netflix? Have you had any problems? Do they movies really come in 1 business day? Do they keep a list of movies you want and then just send you the next one in line? What happens if they get lost in the mail?

I love my netflix. I have had it for a year now with no problems. You have to have a credit or bank card. If I mail in a movie on monday they have it wednesday and most of the time I have another by friday or saturday. I have over 300 movies in my list and you can put them in what ever order you want them shipped in. I am currently on a 4 at a time plan which means that I can have 4 movies at home at a time, If I time it right then I can have a movie in the mail almost everyday or everyother day. If it gets lost in the mail or comes in damaged (both have happened to me) Then you go to the sight and report a problem. They give you the option the recieve the next movie on your list or the same movie and they mail it out with the next mail. Then you send back the damaged one asap and if the one that is lost makes it to you then when you get it just mail it back. All postage is paid. Geez I feel like their commercial. I'll just end here and say that I have not had a problem that they did not fix super fast. And the commercials do not lie.

Thanks for your reply. When you report one lost, do they make you pay for it?

I was a Netflix member for 4 or 5 months. I would say, it's cheap, and a pretty good deal! I had no qualms with them, except for that the DVDs usually came in 2-3 business days instead of just 1. I suppose it depends on where you live, though, and how close you live to their "processing centers". I must have lived further away from one, as I usually got mine on the 2nd or 3rd business day. Overall, I liked it, and ended it because I was trying to cut costs and didn't really have any movies that I needed to watch (I ran out of them, in other words). I would suggest doing it, I think it's worth it, and if you think of costs, it saves you a LOT of money than if you were to just rent them at the local movie store. In my four or five months of being a member, they never lost a DVD in the mail. I've never heard of anyone experiencing this, so I'm guessing the chances of this happening is slim to none. By the way - are you a member of any GPT sites? (Such as Treasure Trooper or Cash Crate)? If you decide to join Netflix, you should do it through one of these sites - as they usually offer a 2 week (or so) trial, and will give you a cash-back refund. For example, if you sign up through Treasure Trooper (one of my favorite GPT sites), and pay the $8.99 for at least one month, you'll get back $17 in your TT account! I strongly encourage you to do that - because if you're going to sign up anyway, why not?

No problem. I just wish I would have known that before I signed up for the first time!

Blockbuster is expensive. I am a member there, but I don't hardly ever go there any more. I usually just rent off of my cable, but I think Netflix is a far better deal, and there is a far better selection. Thanks for letting me know that you are happy with the service. It makes me feel more comfortable in deciding to join!

I have been using netflix for a few years now and I LOVE IT so much. My dvds come within a day and whenever i have had an issue they resolve it superfast. The selection to choose from is huge and they also have lots of dvds that you can watch through the site that do not count against the amount you have out. I can't recommend it enough.

Thanks for letting me know your experience with Netflix. I am getting excited now to join. Sounds like they have good customer service, too, which is great. So far, it looks like Netflix is very popular. Thanks again!
