Renting leads to savings
If your town is like mine, all the video rental stores closed down years ago. But that doesn’t mean you can’t rent movies.
Some common ways to rent movies are:
- Mail service
- The library
- Rental kiosks
Get your movies mailed to youSpecial delivery The two most common mail service companies in the U.S. are Blockbuster and Netflix, with more people using Netflix.
If you subscribe to a mail service, you go online and pick the movie you want, and the company will mail the DVD to you. You’ll get the video in about two days.
When you’re done you mail the DVD back, and the company sends you the next one on your list.
The best part of mail rental? No due dates and no late fees! A month’s worth of movies for less than a theater ticket—what a deal.
But, be aware with mail service, you won’t be able to spontaneously watch a movie. You’ll have to wait for it to come in the mail.
So, check out the library...
