50% Off Rental

Use Code: VUDURENTAL

https://www.watchvudu.com/rentaldeals/

I recommend you redeem the coupon code now. Vudu is notorious for putting low limits on these and closing the offer early.

Re: The VUDU Thread - News, Bargains & UV Codes

I'm glad to see they're offering new services. But I still have no interest in rentals. I'm not going to spend $6 for a rental when I can usually purchase the movie for $10 or less.

If they gave us the option of crediting the rental price towards buying the movie, that would be a gamechanger.

Was that what the NDA survey was about (new rental services)?

No. It wasn't about renting or purchasing.

I don't know much about NDAs. Is it ok to say what it was generally about without going into details?

Re: The VUDU Thread - News, Bargains & UV Codes

Cool, already have a free rental credit and then $10 to spend after that. Missed the $3 from Mr. Mom though, I let some of the episodes play through without watching them but did the survey (said I'd like to see other shows for free with commercials just up front and none after that, also appreciated that they don't put a Skip Intro prompt onscreen and let the full end credits run uninterrupted.) Wish I'd gotten the latest survey- seems like they're trying some new things, hopefully none that suck.

I personally would place emphasis on the basic non-disclosure aspect rather than speculating on what constitutes disclosure ....

But yeah, regarding rentals, a credit towards purchase is the best idea. Generally if I'm willing to pay to rent nowadays, that's a hair's breadth away from wanting to buy depending on price. Scary Stories looks good, but if it looks that good, why not wait to buy it at 10 bucks rather than rent for 6?

Re: The VUDU Thread - News, Bargains & UV Codes

VUDU has some of the worst customer service I've ever dealt with and they rarely can solve problems without making it seem like they are performing miracles. I got the impression their customer reps are told not to solve issues and pass the buck down the road. Seriously.

That is why I practically wept when Flixster folded - their customer service was gold star by comparison.

I might get that as well. Won't be able to watch it without commercials otherwise once it gets to Peacock.

Re: The VUDU Thread - News, Bargains & UV Codes

I blame myself for missing Bond as I often check the Vudu sales at midnight but didn’t last night. Oh well.

I probably will get some of those bundles. I’ve been waiting for a deal on the Kubrick.

Re: The VUDU Thread - News, Bargains & UV Codes

I had a feeling that East coast people would all be in dreamland when Dave posted that at 3:30am ET.

I just couldn't pass that up. $10 for 24 Bond movies is a ridiculous steal. I have all the movies on BD, but it's nice now knowing I have a digital backup or a version I can watch away from my BD player.

The only drawback if of course that Vudu is very hit and miss, mostly miss with bonus features and the only one that really has anything is SPECTRE.

I got an email with a $10 credit just 'as a thank you' and immediately squandered it on the Batman 4 movie UHD bundle (which is currently on sale) ... check your in box and spam folder!

I only receive emails from support, after making a purchase (not all), and when receiving promotional credit. I don't know whether the issue is Hotmail or VUDU.

I have the same problem, but I use yahoo for my email. It must be a VUDU problem.
