How quickly can a fool find his money again?

I currently have a whole bunch of debt. Hmm...I wonder how much I could get for my kidneys?

Blockbuster Online
I could be wrong, but it seems to me that Blockbuster Online is a particulatly economic way to entertain yourself. The least expensive plan is $9.99 a month plus tax. This plan only lets you have one movie at a time, but in addition to that, you get two free in-store rentals a month. With the two in-store rentals likely costing you seven or eight bucks, your net cost is still just two or three dollars a month.

In addition, I understand that they ship very quickly as well.

Now, some of you will argue that a book will provide better, long-term entertainment, and I would agree with you. However, if you buy books at anything like the rate that I have bought them at in the past, two or three bucks seems like a much cheaper way to go.

Others of you will argue that you would save ten bucks by not signing up with Blockbuster at all, and that is true as well. I spend a lot of time watching movies with my girlfriend, however, and so this plan sounds especially good to me, but it should be noted that you will only be saving money if you would have likely paid more for the same service anyway.

In addition, Blockbuster also has promotional codes that I found online. One of them is FRIENDS, which will supposedly get you your first month free. I don't know if it actually works, but I assume that it would. Why would the internet lie to me? :-)
