Blockbuster or Netfilx
Saturday I canceled my online membership to Blockbuster. I had the deal where you can have any three movies out at a time and turn them in to the store for an automatic rental. I was kinda mad at them because they raised their rate on me without notice. I think that existing members should be able to keep their existing rates. I was pissed. So I decided to quit them. I talked myself into it.
1) I will save money
2) There is plenty to watch on TV
3) I own lots of movies that I love
4) If I really want to watch a movie I can just go rent it
5) I should read more
The second I confirmed my cancellation online, I almost started to have a panic attack. What am I going to do without my movies? Now that I've canceled, if I rejoin it'll cost me tons more money. This seriously bothered me for hours. Had I just made a HUGE mistake?
Ann Dee was able to calm me down and talk me into joining Netflix. I feel better. I signed up for the two movies at a time deal. I won't be able to turn them in at a store for a new movie right away but that is OK. It's cheaper and I will be able to slowly return to a healthy routine of movie watching.
So... do you use Blockbuster or Netflix?
