It’s Free Money Friday! My goal every Friday is to find a free money offer for you! Sometimes it’s free cash (like Revolution Money Exchange), sometimes it’s free offers (like the free magazines), and sometimes it’s for rewards (like $10 from Upromise).
Free Blockbuster Two Week Trial
This week the freebie is for free movies! Blockbuster is offering a Total Access Two Week FREE Trial. The total access program allows you to check out movies online and have them mailed to your house. There’s no late fees either.
How it Works
When you first sign up for the free trial you select movies that you want to see and prioritize them. The movies are shipped directly to your house. Then after you finish watching them you mail the movies back in the free return envelope.
Easy Way to Get Extra Movies
If you want to get additional movies you can exchange them for more movies at your local store while they ship some more out. The videos that you get at the store are in addition to the ones from your typical monthly plan.
During the sign up for the two week free trial they ask for your credit card so they can automatically bill you after the two weeks are up. Be sure to write down the date on your calendar and remember to cancel before getting billed.
Last year when we took a long road trip we brought along our DVD player. Since our kids don’t watch much tv, we didn’t have any videos to take along. That’s where I got creative. I signed up for a Blockbuster Total Access Two Week FREE Trial a couple days before our trip. We received a few videos for the trip. When we got home, I canceled the service. It worked like a charm!
