DVD Store Online

In today's high-tech world, it should come as no surprise that thousands of people now shop at the DVD store online rather than driving to a traditional video store. Unfortunately, though, the decision to find DVDs online may raise more questions than it answers. What website offers the best prices? What about the best selection? Should you buy the videos, or should you rent them through an online club? If you choose to buy, should you buy new or used? What about shipping and handling? Is online shopping and renting safe?

In the next few paragraphs, you will learn the answers to these questions and many more to insure that you are getting the most out of your time and money. Read on for an in-depth introduction to the increasingly popular world of the DVD store online!

The Basics of the DVD Store Online

Before you decide to shop or rent, you need to familiarize yourself with the basics of the DVD store online. For the purposes of this article, we will look at one of the most popular online stores that sells DVDs and two of the most popular DVD rental sites. Please remember, though, that there are many websites out there that offer similar services, and you should always do personal research before making a final decision.

One of the most popular websites that sells DVDs, as well as books, CDs, and many other forms of entertainment, is www.amazon.com. Amazon offers most of its products significantly cheaper than the suggested retail price and clearly states how much you are saving in the product description. It also has arguably the largest selection anywhere, online or otherwise. Amazon also offers the option to buy new items directly from them or to buy items used from independent sellers. As an added bonus, Amazon also allows you to sell your used products on their website with no listing fees; you pay Amazon a part of your earnings ONLY if your item(s) sells. Of course, you will have to pay a shipping/handling charge if you order something from Amazon, but this price is very comparable with other online stores. For your peace of mind, Amazon has a reasonable return policy and guarantees the safety of your credit card through encryption. Amazon also allows you to pay via check/money order or to charge it to your Amazon account if approved for one.

If you prefer to rent DVDs, two of the most popular sites are www.netflix.com and www.gameznflix.com. Both sites are very similar in format. First, you go to the website and choose which DVDs you want to view. Up to three DVDs at a time will be mailed to you and often arrive within one business day. When you are finished with them, simply return them in the postage-paid envelope provided. The best part is that you are allowed unlimited DVD rentals per month with NO late fees for less than $20 a month. It's that simple! The only major difference between Netflix and Gameznflix is that Gameznflix offers video games as well as DVDs in their basic subscription.

If you enjoy browsing the aisles at your local video store or simply don't want to wait for the postal service to receive your DVDs, the DVD store online might not be the best option for you. Nevertheless, take a few moments to check out the suggested sites, and maybe try the free trials advertised on the rental sites. You might find that that hard-to-find DVD you've been searching for is only a click away!
