My brother was telling me the other day that he was thinking of using the movie rental service Netflix as it seems so cheap compared to renting a movie from a store. I think it is something like $9 a month at minimum for an unlimited rental plan which is almost the cost of one movie rental through conventional means.
I was trying to think of a negative financially and the only real thing I could think of was with any subscription based services if you donâ€™t normally use the service X amount of times then you will be wasting money regardless. For example, if you rarely ever rent movies at all then it doesnâ€™t really matter how cheap that monthly fee is as this will make you spend more than normal.
Other than that, this made me think of how this is one of those things Iâ€™d say where if you are just stuck with the old way of doing things without exploring the new options that are out there you could be spending way more than you have to. I was looking at its steaming options too which looks really convenient if you have the setup for it.
For myself, Iâ€™m usually one of those people that buy the movies though during a sale if there is something I really want to watch. Itâ€™s been years since I have ever rented a movie.
