    Same. Every Lovefilm user will have 3 in their post.

    I'd actually like some credit for myself though one day Lovefilm, instead of you sending me 'gift vouchers' every couple of months.

    Same here, but new customers make them money. Giving us credit doesn't.

    What kind of deal is the 2 month trial then? One film at a time and no games I assume?
  • Deleted user 3 December 2011 16:11:56
    @Tabasco - You can have the full package for 2 months I believe. Just remember to cancel or change your package before the two months is up!

    @Deckard1 - Me? why might that be? :rolleyes:

    I've been using boomerang recently, seems to be pretty good service so far, and have a bit more flexibility with which packages you get. Think I have 1 a month for 4 quid

    You guys do know that with blockbuster online, on the highest tier you can select what gets sent to you?

    Not like with lovefilm where you just hope.

    I'm sure this point has been made repeatedly, but you generally have to wait 3 or 4 months post-release for games.

    I'm fine with that, but if you like to play games on or near release this is not the way to go.

    You can add as few or as many as you want. The less you have the more likely you are to force their hand and send you what you want. However do not expect them to send it straight away.

    One approach is to set up 2 lists and have one full of 10 games / Blurays you would like and a second which only contains one or two that you really want.

    /I have 5 lists.

    Reserves: This list is never active but used to dump stuff I quite like the look of but do not want at that moment.

    Must Have: This contains the item I really want most of all. (1 disc assigned)

    Other 3 lists: These are divided into categories and the number of discs assigned based on my mood. Each have about 6 items within them. (Occassionally more if I wish to receive multiple disc from the list. But generally I chose the 6 I want most and dump the rest in the Reserve list).

    Increased my subscription by about 80p or something so now I can have unlimited streaming through the iPad app

    My experience is totally the opposite of what is suggested here.

    Saints Row 3, halo anniversary, batman AC, MW3 all came the Saturday after release.

    Generally the service is superb and ticks all the right boxes for me.

    I found that I usually ended up buying games rather than wait for Lovefilm to send it back after PrivateFloyd's had his way with them. So I downgraded my package from 'hoping to get games and limited discs/online' to 'unlimited films'.

    I must be lucky because I've never ever had to wait more than a week after the day of release for any new release. Most come on the Friday, Saturday or the following Monday.

    What I do is have 2 lists - one list has no discs allocated to it. From that list I move title/s into another list (in which I put no more than 2 titles at a time, usually just the one) which has both my discs allocated to it, so Lovefilm either send me those discs or nothing at all.

    I've simply never had any issue with Lovefilm whatsoever - the only problem I've experienced is a missing disc, and that's not their fault.

    Just had Mario 3D Land from them. Hopefully get it swapped for Modern Warefare 3 or Mario Kart 7 by the end of the week.

    (Also have 2 other recent games and a Bluray).
