Lovefilm New Prices, You Can Change Your Package and Get DOUBLE if you used Groupon / Existing Customers save too :)

Found 30th Oct 2011
Just wanted to give people that bought a deal for either the £14.99 package or the £9.99 package that you can upgrade for free and get more per time then before.

*** EVEN IF YOU DIDNT USE THE GROUPON CODE YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK YOUR ACCOUNT AS PRICES ARE MUCH LOWER NOW. ***

I had one account with the £9.99 which was 1 dvd a time and now changed that to 2 dvd at a time for the same price.

Just login to your lovefilm and change your package to the new £9.99 and you will get a extra dvd every time you return it.

If you had the £14.99 package that included 2 dvd/games thats now £14.99 for 3 dvd/games so you can upgrade for free.

Very simple. Login to your lovefilm and goto your account and then to Change package and then choose the one that has the same price and the upgrade price is free. (if you want to test try another package thats higher and you will get a message

Cost to upgrade: £**.**
Change to: Unlimited (3 discs at home) - £13.27/month this was from a £9.99 package.

If you do the right upgrade you will get

Please confirm that you wish to change your subscription package.
Change to: Unlimited (2 disc at home) - £9.99/month

No extra charge if you notice. Be quick before they stop this if they can.

Your pre paid date will not change. As will stay the same.

Very simple.. If you need help post here.

Not sure if its a deal but I think people will want to do this as you get double the £9.99 package.

Slight correction:

If you had the £14.99 package that included 2 dvd/games thats now £14.99 for 3 dvds (no games) so you can upgrade for free.

I know... Im shocked the current customers that PAY for it are not being put on the new packages automatically. Seems a little nasty

Thanks mate. I was on the £14.99 unlimited package which included games> Have remained with the same package but I shall now be paying more than £3 less per month, saving over £40/year. Great stuff. Hope this skyrockets for you. Cheers again.

I did this a while ago and 10 days later had the extra charged to my bank account....not saying this is going to happen but I thought yippee I had a great deal but I didn't.....sorry if i put a downer on it but...

Has it changed when your payment date is due? i.e. i bought 3 months of the £9.99 package for £4 and do not pay again while January.

I can't see how they can charge you more and I waited 2 days before I posted this and no extra money was taken, If there is a charge you will be told before you change your package. If i was you I would contact them. This price changes was only sone a couple of days ago to.

It stays the same. Because the price changes and new package deals you just get upgraded the current price is the same.

Magic! Thanks OP

I had the deal from Toshiba for 12mths membership, it was standard 1 dvd per time and I upgraded to 2 dvds it did not show any charge at all and I thought great but was actually charged 12mths subscription to my card about 10 days later.

What you are saying now may be different but when I did it I thought it was a freebie until being charged the extra.

Awesome... this means I dont have to try and wrestle Peppa Pig of my daughter so that I can get a new PS3 game

HEAT!!!! I am saving nearly £5 a month now as I was one of their customers that they 'forgot' to tell re: the price change!

Fab, thank you!

The groupon was set as a value and not as a freebie. I think that is the difference. I checked my bank now and no extra charges. Maybe as yours was a 1 dvd package and not a set price that is why. But i would have contacted them.


Sweeeeet...cheers OP :-)

I phoned Lovefilm a couple of weeks back about a problem with discs and was told about the free upgrade.The guy said that e-mails will be sent out about the free upgrade.

Thanks buddy

Mysmith, I purchased 3 groupons from one of the previous threads. Next payment date is set to July. I emailed lovefilm and asked if i could swap to a package that included games and was told no.

If I now go to package change and choose 2 discs unlimited inc games it says:

Cost to upgrade: £10.70
Change to: Unlimited & games (2 disc at home) - £11.22/month

So does this mean they would take a 1 off payment of £10.70 and keep my payment date as July?

Cheers if you can help.

Are you sure? Contact lovefim and ask them. I have a few mates that changed and the dates stay the same.

Yes, It means your choosing a package over the basic £9.99 one.
