Netflix Free Trial Offer

by Ryan Guina

Netflix is one of the most popular ways to save money on video rentals – especially now that they offer unlimited streaming as an option! In fact, Netflix made it easier for my wife and I to drop our cable service because we can watch a variety of TV shows and movies through the Netflix streaming service, and still have movies delivered to our door every month. Now you can try Netflix free for one month with a free trial offer using this link: Start your Netflix FREE trial today!.

Netflix – How it Works

Netflix has become the industry leader for watching movies at home. Whether you stream movies online, or prefer to have the DVDs or BluRay movies delivered to your door, no one can do it as efficiently as Netflix. Your Netflix subscription gives you access to the Netflix movie library which holds over 100,000 DVD titles, and over 20,000 streaming options. Netflix has over 100 shipping points nationwide, so you should expect to receive your movies in about one business day. (Netflix has a 95% fill rate within one business day)!

In addition to receiving DVDs by mail, you can watch movies online instantly. This feature is included in your Netflix membership at no extra charge (in fact, you can subscribe to a streaming only Netflix plan).

Netflix Free Trial Offer Details

This free trial is good for one month and is only available to new customers, but you may be able to put the plan in a spouse’s name to get another trial if you have used Netflix before and have since canceled the service. The best part is – you don’t need a coupon code to take advantage of this deal – all you need to do is visit Netflix through this link: Start your Netflix FREE trial today!!

Note: To take advantage of this offer, you need to go to the Netflix site and sign up for one of their subscription plans. The lowest plan starts at $7.99 per month, and is a streaming only option – you can get DVDs delivered to your door for only $2 more per month. Your free trial begins immediately and you won’t pay anything if you cancel before the free trial period ends. If you wait too long, you will automatically enter the subscription plan you selected. But there is no long term commitment and you can cancel at any time.

How Does Netflix Work?

Netflix or Blockbuster?

I wrote a full Blockbuster vs. Netflix review which outlines the pros and cons to each plan. But why not try them both for free? You can get a free month of Netflix, then follow that up with a full month of Blockbuster Total Access! As long as you cancel before the trial periods end, you won’t pay anything. If you do cancel, you can rest assured both Blockbuster and Netflix will send you coupons to try and keep you as a customer. Also, Gamefly just recently launched movies to go with their video game service.  You can now get a free trial of Gamefly for 30 days. If you work it right, you can get free movies all summer!

It’s not free they charge your card for the month but u can get a refund


2 LT

Hey john, how do you get the refund? simply by unsubscribing before the month is out? cause I kinda dont want to just lose 8 bucks…


3 Ryan

John: Thanks for the comment. From what I understand, the two week trial is free, but on the condition you sign up for a subscription. All you need to do is cancel before the trial membership is over, or continue with your subscription if you want to keep using Netflix.

Netflix charges for the “Free Trial”. Period. The wording on this “free” offer is so vague that many people continue to complain about this tactic. If Netflix’s terms are so “clear”, then why are so many complaining about it?


5 Ryan

They don’t charge for the free trial period, they charge for the time after the period. Anyone can cancel before the two weeks is up and not be charged.


6 slrtx

Yes, under certain conditions you can get a refund.

Problem is, you need to read their full terms to understand the conditions, and make sure you meet all of them.

But the initial wording that most people read (below) gives folks the idea that a 2-week free trial is just that – a FREE trial.

Most people apply the use of the term “free trial” based on how they normally encounter this in every day life. Netflix applies it differently.

Is it illegal? No.

Is it misleading? I think so, based on my experience, and the input from others.

There are just too many people out there complaining about this for it to be a fluke.

So, my advice to everyone – plan on paying for the “free trial”, if you don’t sign up for their service. If you sign up to use Netflix afterwords, they’ll apply the “free” part of the trial.

“Your free 2 week Netflix membership will begin when you click on “Start Membership” during the registration process. Simply cancel anytime during your 2 week free membership, and you will not be charged. To cancel, click on “Your Account” and follow the simple cancellation instructions. If you are enjoying Netflix, do nothing and your membership will automatically continue at the monthly subscription rate for the plan you selected. The FREE Trial offer cannot be combined with any other offer. Limit one per household. First-time customers only. Valid payment method required. See Terms of Use for complete membership details.”

If you want to see films in their original cut , go with Netflix

Blockbuster re-edits R-Rated movies to fit their owners christian moral standards.

Huh? Have you rented from BBuster lately?

Maybe YOUR local BBuster edits movies, but here not only can I get uncut movies, I can get the UNRATED versions!!!!

Maybe you need to re-evaluate where you are getting your info from.

BTW – I’m not a big fan of BBuster, but I don’t like unfounded rumors either.

thank you…

You should go through whatever airline miles or hotel points program you have. They usually give you about $10 worth of miles/points for signing up.

So I just signed up for a free month of Netflix at the beginning of January. It was in fact free even though I had to input my Credit Card information and all that good stuff. However my card was not charged until Feb 10 one month after I signed up.

How is this free you ask well just like most service contracts (cell phone, cable etc) your monthly bill for service is actually prepaid not postpaid. This means that you will pay for the service that you use prior to actually using it. So yes the free trial offer is free and if you read the fine print you will notice that you can cancel at anytime prior to the end of your trial period and not be charged at all.


12 Jessica

After signing up for the free trial our credit card was not charged until 2 weeks later. This was at the time of the 2 week trial, now they have 1 month trial though.

Just remember to cancel before the end date to keep from getting your credit card charged.

I’ve also used both Netflix and Blockbuster in years past, but have been much more impressed by Netflix’s selection, streaming option, and quicker turn-around in their distribution network.


14 Barb Friedberg

I’ve thought about this topic a lot, and this article is offering a “push” to investigate further. That said, I love the “on demand” exercise, network, free movie, hbo, showtime etc. programs. Our family milks our fios subscription dry!


15 Ryan

You can’t go wrong paying for it if you use it and truly enjoy it. My wife and I didn’t watch enough TV to justify the cost of cable, and for us, spending less than $10 a month for Netflix is a great deal, and saves us about $40 or more every month – which adds up quickly!


16 Barb Friedberg

Hi Ryan, Actually television is our guilty pleasure. We love watching in the evenings to unwind. That said, Netflix sure is a bargain. 🙂


17 moses

hi Ryan i am interested on Netflix but, I cannot afford it the monthly payment .Are u guys have any discount below 7.99


18 Ryan Guina

Moses, the discount is for the first month free. Blockbuster has a similar offer. Other affordable ways to watch movies include RedBox and Amazon Prime streaming.
