DVD Rental Pay As You Go
Pay As You Go > How Does It Work?
Buy rental credits - not a monthly subscription
With pay as you go you purchase rental credits for a one-off payment. You can then use the rental credits to rent films as and when you want to. Rental credits are valid for 3 months from the purchase date, giving you plenty of time to use them. There are no additional fees and no monthly subscription charges to worry about.
Pay as you go is ideal if you watch only one or two films a month. Since there is no recurring monthly fee, if you only rent films now and then as an occassional treat, pay as you go will definitely offer you the best value for money.
Cheaper than in-store rentals
As well as the added benefits of convenience and choice, pay as you go is also cheaper than renting the latest movies from your local video rental store. Rental credits are now down to about £2.00 each with LOVEFiLM and easyCinema - full details below.
Same benefits as pay-monthly
Pay as you go gives you the same benefits as pay monthly. You will have access to the full catalogue of DVD and Blu-ray titles, and can expect exactly the same level of service and priorty as pay-monthly customers. You also get the standard feautures such as free first class postage both, no late fees or due dates, and as a pay as you go customer you obviously aren't in a contract.
Pay As You Go > DVD Rental Providers
Who offers pay as you plans?
Most companies have moved away from the pay as you go business model, but there are still two online providers who offer the option of pay as you go dvd rental: Amazon-owned LOVEFiLM and easyGroup's easyCinema both offer three rental plans, as detailed in the rental plans section below. We are delighted to see that these providers have listened to their customers and have decided to continue to offer these pay as you go dvd rental plans.
What's the difference?
LOVEFiLM, in fact, operates the easyCinema website and powers it's online rental business, so the service is essentially exactly the same and the prices are almost identical too! What really sets LOVEFiLM apart is the website and the online community of film lovers it has brought together. The site is much more modern and is constant being updated and improved. For this reason, we recommend cutting out the middle man and opting for the LOVEFiLM pay as you go service. They also have a couple of sign up offers for you at the moment!
More information about these providers can be found under the DVD Rental Providers section.
