5 Tips to Save Money on Movie Rentals

Posted by Kashyap on July-24-2012 under Save Money

Here are some cool tips that will help you to save money on movie rentals. The present economic situation has made our monthly budget so tight that most of us can hardly think of spending time with our families at a movie theatre. And to add to the woes, you can also add the price of the gas that you will burn to take your family out to the theatre.


So, if you are spending a fortune on theatres and are looking for ways to cut down on the expense, then the following tips may help you to achieve your goal:

  1. Free movie rentals: There are many libraries in your locality that rent movies. Search for the libraries that rent them for free. Although, I don’t think you will be able to get new movie releases, but your local library should have plenty of classics and other popular movies.
  2. Go for membership: There are many movie libraries that allow their customers to get a membership card for a very little cost. As a member, you might be able to get 2 or more movies at a time and you will not have any time limit to return the movies.
  3. DVD kiosks: This is the newest trend in the movie rental industry. Here, you can go up to any movie rental kiosk and insert your credit card. Then, you select the movie that you would like to see and you will get the movie DVD to take it home. Once you are finished with that movie, you simply need to return it back to the rental kiosk.
  4. Online renting: There are various movie rental companies like Netflix and Redbox which will allow you to choose the movies of your choice online. You can pay them with your credit card and the movie will be delivered to you via mail.
  5. Movie trading with friends: The best and the cheapest way to watch movies is trading the movie DVDs with your friends. It will help each one of you to watch the movies that you have in your collections without spending a penny on renting.
