Notable Amazon Instant Video Freebies, Discounts, New Additions

Thought I should start this thread for notable mentions from Amazon Instant Video (both Prime and Regular)

Notable freebie I found is the season 2 premiere of Fairly Legal from USA

If you've bought a New Release DVD or Blu-ray in the past couple months, you might have some Amazon Instant Video credit sitting in your account. They also gave out some free credits for recent Trade-In transactions.

Checking your Amazon Instant Video credit balance is simple. Go to any Amazon Instant Video listing page. Click on the "View Balance" link at the bottom of the black box.



You'll get a small pop-up that looks like this:

Free is always good, but you can stream that free on the USA network site:

These 2 threads exist in Hot Deals and hopefully get ported over to the Streaming Talk site (maybe even as stickies) soon.

^^ Definitely worth 99 cents if you have nothing to watch. I rented it late last year and thought it was entertaining, but not worth owning.

Re: Notable Amazon Instant Video Freebies, Discounts, New Additions

Shouldn't rentals be in a separate thread, or at least identified as such?

There are 2 threads in Hot Deals that are split by purchase and rental... see Post #4 above... theBigDave is helping out by getting the rental deals into the Streaming thread as well..

So for 79 a year you get unlimited streaming and free shipping on everything? But not everything they have is free if you have prime?
