Groupon Canada: $3 for Five 1 Day Rentals of New Release DVDs or Blu ray ($10 Value)

Groupon Canada and have teamed up and are making waves with this offer: spend only $3 for Five 1 Day Rentals of New-Release DVDs or Blu-ray movies, a $10 value.

How this works:

Redeem at any Kiosk. New releases and Blu-ray titles ($2/day each) are added to kiosks each Tuesday. One-day rentals span a 24-hour period beginning at time of initial rental. kiosks may be located here. Oddly enough I didn’t find any in Edmonton, so you might want to check if they are available in your area. They say ‘across Canada’ but not how frequently, or what parts of Canada. The 5 one day rentals are valid only for 24-hour rentals of $2 new release, $2 Blu-ray, or $1 DVD.

Be sure to read all the fine print. You must use all your rentals by the 31st, October 2012.

There are limited quantities available, they just don’t say own many.

Expiry: 5th, August 2012

December 9 3 Months DVD Rentals For $15!

Posted by on December 9, 2010 at 6:00 AM 3 Months DVD Rentals For $15!

There’s a deal on Groupon Ottawa that is really good – you can get 3 months of unlimited DVD rentals  from for only $15!

The deal is Canada wide, it doesn’t only apply if you live in Ottawa. The DVD rentals are sent to your home, and you can have 3 discs out at a time. Normally you’d pay $50 for the same service – 1 month free, then 2 months at $25 each, so $15 for 3 months is really sweet.


Expires Jun 10, 2011. Limit 1 per person, may buy additional as gifts. New members only. Valid credit card information required. Tax included. Not valid with other offers.

So if you’ve signed up to before, you won’t be able to take advantage of this offer. But if there is someone else in your household who could sign up, perhaps a partner or a housemate, then you might be able to make use of it.

October 11 Promotion Code: 1 Month’s Free Trial Of DVD Rentals!

Posted by on October 11, 2009 at 10:00 PM Promotion Code: 1 Months Free Trial Of DVD Rentals!

Spotted another promotion code which gets you a free month’s trial of DVD rentals from!

  • Promotion Code: TryZip
  • Expiry: Unknown

I don’t know when this one expires, so use it while you can. Normally, you only get a 2 week free trial, but this coupon code extends that up to one month instead. Nice!

It annoys me that when you use these promotion codes on, at no stage when you are going through the checkout does it tell you that you are getting the extended trial instead of the normal 2 weeks. However, if you enter the wrong promo code, it does throw up an error, which leads me to believe that if this promo code expires, you will know about it and won’t be stuck with a silly 2 week trial instead.

Think of it like this – take the 2 week free trial, then pay for the first month, on the smallest package – this is costing you $5.95 for 6 weeks of online movie rental. PLUS you’d be getting $14 cashback, so you’d technically be up about $8 on the deal!! Sweet!
