Hi everyone

I was clearly bored and wandering around the "My Account" section of my Lovefilm account and stumbled across a way of getting a further discount on my existing membership that I was not aware of so thought I'd share this deal.

Basically visit lovefilm.com/acc…tml and choose to pre-pay for 3 months in advance and save 15% off normal membership and pay for 6 months in advance or more and save 16.67% off.

New members can obviously get a free trial and cashback but this is great for existing members looking to save money on their subscription.

Works for all package levels.

Or, don't rejoin when your rental time expires, wait 8 weeks and they usually send you a letter asking to rejoin them with the offer of 3 months for 1. Worked 3 times with me so far.

What do you mean by "don't rejoin"? I thought they just bill you until you cancel? Or are you on some pre-pay deal?

Fair enough, didn't work for me though as I was out of membership for 3 months and didn't get any offer to rejoin. Anyway thought this was useful for members happy with the service that don't want to break the service but want to save money quite easily.

Personally the new Lovefilm streaming service I get with PS3 and my Sony Blu Ray player has been very useful and I'm happy to keep the account going and even happier now I've found a way to knock down my costs.

Just a few words of advice about pre-paying. I pre-paid once for a whole year in advance. I wasn't treated like a VIP or a special customer or anything - oh no. I had to fight for my rights e.g. they gave a discount to monthly subscribers but didn't pass it on to pre-payers. I quite enjoyed my sub to Lovefilm, but a few things like that spoiled things. I haven't been back with them and they haven't sent any offers to me to rejoin. You get the feeling like they have the market place all sewn up. I just wish there was a little more competition out there.

Have they removed the 25% off 12months. We were waiting on going for this once our 3months trail runs out next week after we left Tesco DVD for lovefilm after doing the same thing with them.
Also another point along side the point matedodgy has highlighted, is that the price may change but it can also potentially go up. This happened with a Cineworld card I used to have and they put the price up twice in the same 12months so I saved a lot because of prepaying so swings and roundabouts really.

Thanks Matedodgy and Astec

The 12 month discount was showing as the same as 6 months ie 16.67% so I only took out a 6 month pre-pay. Gutted to hear 25% 12 month pre-pay discount has gone - oh well. Still pretty happy to get the discount given that I hadn't known about it
