Disney Movie Club

We all know Google specializes the ads that it shows you by your browser history.  Once you search for Disney Trip Planning once or twice you will start to see adds for the Disney Movie Club pop up.  This is the one that shows 4 Disney movies for only $1! Sounds too good to be true right? There is a catch to this. You do indeed receive 4 blu-rays for $1 as a sign on bonus, but you must purchase 5 more movies priced at $29.99 or higher over the next 2 years.  I started looking into joining and after extensive research and debating over the course of a few months I signed up.  It was fall 2013 when I joined.  Since then my Disney/Marvel movie collection has grown substantially, 36 titles! To top it off I’ve only spent $378, making a savings of $468 off of retail prices.  I made myself a handy spreadsheet to show the difference in pricing from what I paid through the DMC and what the lowest price was between Wal-Mart, Target, & Best Buy.

I did this by maximizing the opportunity for savings.  After reaching my 5 movie requirement, I quit my membership and rejoined picking up another introduction special in the process.

Let me know if you’re interested in joining the movie club or have any other questions about it. We can both score some free movies. I’m a big fan of free.
