To The Point - Is It Worth It?
Yes it is! I have increased my Disney library to well over 60 Blu-ray movies thanks to the club! Below, I will tell you why I think the Disney Movie Club is an incredible deal, and how to save $30 on your commitment with a referral code and how to receive 11 movies for $9.20 each!
Use A Referral Code and Save $30.00!
If you need a referral code, here is mine :D
* Every person that uses my referral code will earn my three kids two free Disney Blu-ray movies!
Over the years I have received many mailers from DMC offering me 4 movies for $1, with a 5 movie obligation (not so obvious detail) but I ignored those. Lately I have noticed some Facebook sponsored posts for this club and the comments got my attention.
The deal seems to good to be true, but it is Disney, a house hold name and a trusted company. I grew up on Disney movies and I my kids love their movies, so I thought I would look into it further. I would love to have the entire Disney collection of classics for myself and my Kids!
How Does It Work?
I realized if I used a referral code I could get 5 movies for $1 instead of the 4 they were offering, and I would have one less obligation to purchase over the next 24 months. It was also pointed out that after you checkout with the 5 movies, the Disney movie club will also offer you 2 more Blu-ray movies, the first for $15 that will count as one of those 4 movie commitments, and the second for $10, that does not count towards your movie commitment. This brings me down to 3 more movies to buy in 24 months. The selections for the $15 and $10 are a bit limited, the good news is if you can not find 2 movies you care about, you can pick any 2 movies and then call the club up to ask for a different movie.
I like to reserve the final 3 for new releases that I would have bought anyways. I would have been spending $25 + tax on new movies like Avengers End Game, Star Wars Episode IX and Captain Marvel. This makes the club deal even sweeter for me!
How Much Does It Cost?
The quick answer is you will get 11 movies for roughly $9.20 each with a referral, which includes 3 new releases.
When you average things out with the introductory offer and two subsequent discounts, 3 mandatory movies and bonus Disney Movie Rewards Blu-ray - you are paying roughly $101 for 11 Blu-ray movies which averages out to $9.20 each! Its even cheaper if you are happy with DVD's.
Be sure to utilize those Disney Movie Reward points! Every Blu-ray comes with 150 Disney movie reward points. You can redeem the 1500 points for one of many free movies!
Are there monthly Fee's?
While there are no monthly fee's to be a member, they do have a monthly selection that you have to decline, or they will auto bill you and mail it to you. They give you 4 weeks to respond to the email or postcard, which is more than enough time to decline it. I prefer to decline by the website so I receive an email confirming it was declined. This way in 2 weeks when I have forgotten if I have done so or not, I can check my mail and confirm it was declined. If you do forget and they mail it to you, simply write "return to sender" on the package and they will refund you after they receive it and process it. Which does take about 4-6 weeks, not ideal.
Do you get DVD's or Blu-rays?
Will you get DVD's or Blu-rays? During the checkout process they ask you what you prefer. if you opt for Blu-ray they will send you that if there is a Blu-ray version of that movie in the club. Some of the older movies are only on DVD like Black Cauldron. However most movies do have a Blu-ray version or multiple Blu-ray versions. After you join you will receive an email confirmation of what you asked for, you can verify what you ordered there, and if there is a problem you have time to call the club up and make a substitution. It will look like the following:
BDC-US-MOANA W/DVD+DIGITAL HD
This was for Moana that came on Blu-ray and includes the DVD and a digital HD copy.
Are There Digital Copies?
Not all movies include a digital copy. Most of the newer ones do, and many of the classics like Lion King does. If that is important to you, you can check your email confirmation and if it does not include a digital copy, you can call the club up and ask if they have a version with digital they can substitute it for, or you can ask them for a different movie you want and confirm it has a digital copy. The Tangled Blu-ray does not have a digital copy, you need to purchase the 3D version of the Blu-ray to get the digital. Tinkerbell 1-3 do not have digital copies available, but the last 2 movies do have digital.
Can You Cancel?
You can cancel anytime after you meet your purchase commitment. Some folk cancel and then rejoin again to get the incredible introductory offer. Apparently Disney will even suggest this to you if you remain inactive long enough. They would rather have your introductory offer money than have you as a long term member.
Is it worth it?
In conclusion I love the fact I am receiving 11 brand new Disney movies for $9.20 each, which includes 3 brand new releases! After I do my commitment I cancel my membership and sign up again a month later. As you can tell by my Disney movie collection posted above, Ive been at this a while!
If you need a referral, I would be really grateful if you used mine: http://fbuy.me/mDVKp
So far I have left this blog un-monetized, and I get rewarded when people use my referral link, so every referral is appreciated!
