Anyone want free DVD rental coupons?

18 posts in this topic

I dunno if this goes in marketplace or not since I'm not selling anything. Admins can move it if required.

I bought a portable DVD player. And it came with 10 coupons for a free DVD rental at Hollywood Video. Unfortunately, there don't appear to be anywhere near here. I'll be within walking distance of one on Sunday when I visit Niagara Falls, but I don't think I want to have to clear customs to use them. :) And it would be a pain in the ass to return them from Ottawa. :P

They all expire at the end of July, but if you can use 2 or 3, let me know and I'll send them off free of charge. I figure I probably paid for them in with the purchase price of the DVD player, so someone better use some of them. :)

FYI - It says on it that you can't use it for game rentals. Only DVD and VHS movies.

Dude I'll take one/some/whatever. Honestly I bet a lot of people want one so maybe you should give them out to many, not all ten to one person?

Given that they expire at the end of July, that's a good idea. But I don't want to send one to ten people... be rather expensive to me. Then again, I have about $50 in stamps (people give them to me for Xmas and I don't use them....).

So I'll break it up into 4, 3 & 3. So Sheeps, asking first, gets the 4. Just send me your address in a PM.

I'll take some if you have any left. Got a Hollywood Video behind my house.

BTW, you get stamps for Christmas?

My mother puts together a Xmas sock each year for me despite my repeated statement that I'm neither Christian nor Consumerist and therefore would prefer people give money that they would spend on a gift to the food bank. Her response is "I'm your mother... I'm supposed to give you stuff at Christmas".

So, Sheeps and Sammy... one batch of 3 left.

Yeah, the admins hid it. They don't want people getting free DVD rentals. :rolleyes:

Sheep's are already sent. Sammy's will be sent tomorrow. (I'm in Toronto. Coupons are in Ottawa)

I got mine today too! Thanks!

I have to say, at first I was like what's this odd sized envelope from Canada about? Had no other markings on it but the address was hand written. Of course when I opened it all was understood. Anyways, thanks again.

I still have 3 left if someone wants to claim them.

Sheeps: too bad you can't use them for PS2 games, eh?

Yeah I read the terms immediately and was like "D'OH!" but it's all good, we have a long list of movies we want to see. We have Netflix, but sometimes you're waiting and waiting and it's easier to take a trip than to wait longer.

Then... sammy's got there a day faster even though I'm in Albany and he's in Texas? Dang! I'm only like five-and-a-half hours driving from Ottawa... Texas is... more than that! :P

Not like I'm upset, it's just weird. We got Cheech and Chong's Still Smokin' first, turns out you have to do one at a time. There's one on the way home from work so now I might get one of those MVP unlimited passes or something...

It said one movie per visit. So do the Subway cards. So a friend asked me to pick him up a sub and gave me his cards and stickers. So I went in and asked for two subs and showed my four cards. They informed me that it was one per visit. So I ordered just one and left. Turned around, went back in and ordered my second.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-

Funny that.... I sent Sheeps BEFORE my Toronto trip and Sammy's after I got back. Of course, the trip was only 3 days and two of those were a weekend...

The envelope had two stamps on it, meaning in total he "wasted" about two bucks to make fellow posters happy.
