Movies for Cheap or Free
Movies can be expensive
even to rent, so here are some tips to save money.
Oftentimes the independent local movie rental stores are even
less than the "big box" national movie rental stores.
So you can support your local businesses while saving money.
Before you buy a membership, be sure you will use it enough
to save the money on the rentals. Many places hope you will
pay for the membership yet not use it often enough to make
it worth while, meaning more money in the store's pocket and
less in yours.
Libraries carry many movies - especially children's movies
- and you get to rent them for free. And since so many people
use the movie rental stores, you will very likely find the
movie you are looking for, or if they don't have it, many
libraries will bring it in from another branch, or recommend
it for purchase.
When that big blockbuster doesn't have the rental demand anymore,
movie rental stores hope to recoup even more money by selling
the movies off cheap, usually at less than half of retail.
You can pick up some great deals, or keep your eyes on them,
as the movies tend to get discounted even more to get them
out the door.
