The Perks of Disney Movie Club

Chances are that if you’ve bought a Disney movie in the past 5 years, you’ve noticed the little piece of paper that they stick in all of the DVD cases promoting the Disney Movie Club. If you were like me and ignored them, that’s fine, but out of curiosity about 6 months ago, I actually decided to look into it.

I thought it would be a scam. They offer you 4 Disney movies for $1 each if you join the club. Then you can add on two more movies for a total of $25. So an initial investment of about $35 once you pay shipping.

I was still on the fence. I needed more information. After some digging (the fine print was hard to understand), the only thing you needed to do to get the rewards and discounts on Disney movies was to purchase 5 Disney movies at the membership price. Better yet, you have 2 years to reach this commitment.

Thinking of all of the movies I want to buy and being perfectly okay with buying 5 movies at a certain price, I went for it.

I was not disappointed.

I got the 6 movies that I requested when I signed up really quickly. The first 10 movies that I bought actually cost me less than $75 and I even used my Disney Rewards points to get free movies like “The Jungle Book” and more recently, “Wall-E.”

They send you monthly emails with the movie that is being featured and you can “Accept” or “Decline” the offer. I’ve accepted a couple of them and these movies go towards your fulfillment commitment. They also send you extras like lithographs for your collection.

I’m only 6 months into my commitment and I’ve already gotten 4 of the movies I’m required to get. I like to think of this as a subscription box. Instead of getting mystery items every month that you may or may not like or use, you know exactly what you’re getting with this.

Guess what?

If you’re interested in joining, let me know! I can give you a code! In fact, every time you refer someone, you get 2 free movies!

Need I say more?

August 13th. I love it.

School is almost here so here are my last loves of the summer!

First up this week, sleepovers with my best friend. I love it! I had been promising Lupita all summer that we could have a sleepover before she started kindergarten (holy crap, she’s in kindergarten). I went to her house on Friday and we made pizza, watched a movie, and stayed up super late (11:15pm which is late for me nonetheless a 5 year-old). We woke up, ate food, watched more movies, and then it was time to go. Now she wants to sleep over at my house. Maybe that can be one of her birthday activities when she’s six in 3 months.

I love it.

Next up, getting organized. I love it. This week I spent a lot of time getting the gym, locker room and myself organized for school. It meant a lot of cleaning, clearing out, and revamping. I redid bulletin boards, found out who the boys in my advisory are, and hopefully set myself up for a successful year. 2 more days until the kids are back!

I love it.

Finally, Perry Mason. I love it. It only took me a total of about 5 days to watch the entire first season. My next project is going to be The Big Bang Theory but I have so many books on my reading list that I’m not sure how TV fits into my list of important things to do. Time will tell.

I love it. It’s great. Everything’s great.

I love it.
