Netflix Membership – Frugal Novice

Netflix Membership

If you are struggling to decide what movie to get your friends or family for the holidays, why not just give them hundreds? With Netflix, they have a ton of entertainment options right at their fingertips. They can stream media through to their DVR,  game system or computer, or can have discs mailed to their houses. Either way, it’s a fun gift option for almost anyone on your list.

    DO NOT give a Netflix gift subscription. Your recipient will be required to enter THEIR credit card information (a prepaid credit card won’t work) which will authorize Netflix to charge for the subscription after the gift subscription runs out unless they remember to cancel first.

      Good to know, Ben! We gave a subscription last year and never heard anything about this from the recipients, so I didn’t know.

    Huh! I read what Ben commented above, and now I’m wondering how that works. Otherwise, I’d be tempted to check this out as a potential gift for my in-laws. But not if their credit information is required!
