No Late Fees
The late fees from rentals at our local video rental store were killing me. Last year I paid $40 at the end of the year to dig us out of the hole. Bo rented games or movies and they seemed to disappear under mounds of dirty clothes for weeks at a time. He was supposed to return the rented items AND pay his own late fees; of course, he never had the money. Eventually, I paid up and blocked him from the account.
We signed up for NetFlix, the online DVD rental service that delivers through the postal service, about five months ago. We selected the two-out-at-a-time service and have been pleased with it since we started. The best part: no late fees! Ever!
