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?

Day 4: My favorite songs

I love music and I used to pride myself on the music collection that I had acquired. Lately, I’ve been more into audio books, but here are my top 5 favorite songs ever.

  1. Bigger Than My Body by John Mayer – if my life had a theme song, it would be this.
  2. Ready or Not by Bridgit Mendler – there’s always one line that hooks me and for this song it’s “I like your face, do you like my song?” I say it to Bud all the time and he knows how to respond.
  3. Rivers and Roads by The Head and the Heart – lovely song that reminds me of being home (and also of the last episode of “Chuck” which is my favorite show of all time).
  4. Down by Jay Sean – this one is weird because I think I only enjoy it because I had a dream once where I was doing a jump rope routine to it.
  5. Wild Hearts by R5 – there’s just something about this song that makes me want to be the rebel I am not.
