Peerflix, a service that enables you to swap DVDs instead of renting them, is launching a promotion ("2 DVDs 2 Trade") next Tuesday where they will give you 2 free DVDs and a Peerflix CD case for signing up. They gave us early notice and you can sign up today at:
The link works but won't show the details until next Tuesday when they officially launch the promo.
Peerflix normally charges $1 per trade. Here's how Peerflix works:
I've signed up and will let you know what I think of the service. I've got a bunch of DVDs that are good but I can't imagine watching them again. This sounds like a good way get some new movies to watch.
When I signed up this was in the e-mail:
You will receive your welcome package in the mail within 3 to 5 business days. The package will contain your first set of DVD mailers. As a new member, your first 10 Trades are FREE. Once you send a DVD on to another member, you will be able to receive movies of equal or lesser value within 1 to 5 days. Remember, the more DVD's you send, the more you will receive. If you currently do not own any DVDs, you can also buy them right from our site.
Does anyone have any experience with Peerflix?
Update: Peerflix sent an e-mail with more information on the promotion. Here's a comparison of the past, present, special blog promotion:
1) How it was in 2004
- 10 free trades
- no free dvds, ever
That is no longer the case.
2) How it is currently and will continue to be until this coming Tuesday
- 3 free trades
- no free dvds, ever
This is how the site currently works. There are no free movies involved - just trades, the act of shipping and receiving your own movies.
3) Special promotion for limited time only
- 2 free trades
- 2 free DVD movies given to you for free
- for people coming from the blogs only (first few hundred, while supplies last) we'll also give them an exclusive carrying case You not only get free trades, you get physical DVD movies (at least a $20 value!) shipped to you at home for free.
Once the supplies for #3 expire, we will revert back to the current scenario, #2.
