We've gone back & forth with Netflix, the OUTSTANDING online DVD rental company, as to what plan is right for us. Some months we're a 3-4 movies at a time kinda family, some months we're a 2 movies at a time kinda family.
Today, and really for no reason in particular because I HIGHLY recommend Netflix, I was going through our account information and I clicked on the "Cancel My Account" link. I was really more interested in the terms of cancelling than anything, I guess. I don't think I had the intention of cancelling. (Merrin would kill me!)
Anyway, I clicked on the "Cancel My Account" link and a "Please don't leave us" screen came up. I was offered a special retention deal where the Economy plan (2 DVDs at a time) was reduced from the customer $13.95/month to $10.95/month. Long story short, I took them up on the offer.
Odds are we'll probably end up back at the 3 or 4 movies out level again later in the year, but I just thought I would pass along the savings idea to some of you. I don't know if you would get the same offer if you were already on the Economy plan, but it might be worth it to try. Heck, saving $36/year is $36/year!
