Netflix now sells Prev viewed DVD $9.99

I know it is not much of a bargain right now, but it may evolve into one over time. More competition amongst sellers creates a better market for us buyers. Right now they are selling about 30 titles for $9.99 with free shipping.

not sure if you have to be a member (I am one, and the banner showed up on my account today)...they do come in dvd cases (not the envelopes), but i am not sure if they are the original cases...and their site says original artwork included...

"All movies are inspected for quality and playability and come in a DVD case with original artwork. "

The description is vague enough that some people are going to have to try it before we know how great/crap it is.

Is Netflix selling from there rental stock or is this part of their "merger" agreement with Walmart? I wonder if the used DVDs will be from Walmart's on-line rental stock instead. Maybe that's why the list is limited.

Okay - I took a shot with The Incredibles since it says it comes with the bonus disc. The checkout is much like Gamefly in that you purchase each title separately. I will let you know what happens in a few days ("Your order will arrive in 5-10 business days").

Oh and BTW, I think you may need a Netflix account since it automatically billed it to the credit card I use for my account ("We will charge your current payment method and your order will be sent to your current shipping address.").

Since they are now shipping everything first class you might get it in 5-10 days. I have to say my first experience w/ this though has been a disaster. It took over 3 weeks for the DVD to show up and package was damaged/case crushed/DVD unplayable. They promptly sent out a replacement, but that was about 2 weeks ago now and no sign of it yet.

When they started, they sold old movies thru Wherehouse stores for $5. They didnt include original covres or inserts. Also, it was pretty scrached up.

I also ordered the Incredibles a few days back. Waiting to see what I get, but they state they guarantee them so I figured its worth a shot

I also order The Incredibles back on 6/29. Took 2 weeks to get the confirmation. Hopefully if mine is a wash out quality-wise, you'll still be able to cancel yours long before it ships.

Got my copy of The Incredibles yesterday. The DVDs were both in terrific shape. However, there was no insert. Anyone know if this came with one?

Yeah, my store bought copy came with a small guide which contained descriptions of the special features, a DVD disc "site map", character pictures, and a chapter listing. Did they include the paper slip case also?

I remember I was buying thier DVD's a couple years back from half.com I think . Used coupons though ... of course
They shipped in a plain DVD case with a generic wrapper and no inserts but I didnt really care . Now most DVD's don't stay up in price long so if it's not a "huge" movie , I wait for a month or so and buy it for less than 10 bucks .

Yes - looks just like the standard retail box.
