    Late fees

    I see a lot of people are complaining about the service (I happen to love it). A lot of these complaints seem to be in a vacuum. Compare it to a more traditional store's complaint, to see how they measure up.

    How about this one...

    What's the biggest late fee you ever paid?

    I'll start it off... $36.

    Now, in light of that, I still like NetFlix.

    • I just signed up for the service for this reason alone. I normally rent about 5-6 movies a month and, embarassingly enough, always turn at least one in late. Avg rental cost $4 (I like the old movies too) + Avg late fee of $4 = total $24 minimum a month.

      No taxes.

      No late fees.

      No travel to the store.

      No waiting in line with my kids (who always want the candy off the rack).

      No lame cards in my wallet.

      No reams of reciepts with ads.

      You get my drift.

      I don't own stock in NFLX...yet.

      • Sorry guys, I don't understand very well this talking about late fees and how Netflix solve that.

        How you call a month when you paid $20 to Netflix and for whatever reason you saw only a couple of movies? It happened to me, and I'm sure I'm not the only one.

        Is it very different than paying a late fee?

        EVERY SINGLE DAY THAT A NETFLIX MOVIE IS IDDLE AT HOME, YOU'RE PAYING A LATE FEE, EVEN IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW IT.

        C'mon, no late fees works good for an ad, but the minute you get rational about it you see that with NFLX it's the same thing.

    • Paid 1 late fee of $8.

      But the fear of late fees also probally kept me from renting at some point in time.
