I feel bad because some people are seeing a much bigger hike. But I switched my plan to three this morning (3 DVDs) because I wanted to get familiar with how you do that so I can cancel in September. After I switched it, I got an e-mail telling me the price difference.
When I wrote last night's post, I didn't mention how much it was costing me because Netflix didn't send me an e-mail. I checked the spam folder even. I only got one today and that was right after I had dropped from 4 DVDs down to 3.
Is that a huge amount?
And that makes me feel guilty.
If I'll only see an increase of $3.99 a month in September, I'm tempted to keep it.
And yet I know there are so many others who won't be able to.
I'm not happy about it, the price increase. And I'm not saying I'm keeping it.
This morning at breakfast, I was still complaining and on the laptop looking at Amazon Prime. If you're switching, that may be the place to go. It's $79 at once -- if they'd allow monthly payments, I bet they'd have a lot more customers signing up right now -- which would be less than $7.90 a month and they have a lot of movies you can stream.
I looked at Blockbuster as well but couldn't understand what the hell they were offering. If Blockbuster is trying to improve their amount of business, they need a home page and about page that explains what they're offering clearly. Don't tell me I can sign up for a trial and 'forget' to tell me what the cost will be after the trial period.
So I'm not sure now what I'm going to do.
And I am tempted to stay with Netflix if it's only $3.99 more a month for me. I know that's sucky and I should be thinking about everyone and not just myself.
