i have just signed up for a 90day trial. I dont remember it asking if i wanted games. I have since tried to upgrade my package to include games but it says I'm not allowed to. I've emailed them, but am I likely to get it - i only signed up for the games...

when you picked what package you wanted theres a paragraph above them with the link to add games to it. Not sure if they'll change it but I wouldn't see any harm in being able to add games as either way its free. Good luck.

can i asked what code u used to get the free 90 days??

yeah its a rather sneaky way but I can't complain too much as I've just signed up to the 18.99 month package with 3 360 games winging their way to me as we speak.

yes they go through ok but ive heard of people getting an email after a day or two saying that you are not eligable as you have already recieved a free trial! Hence why people have used the postcode scam to get their free trials. Only time will tell to see if u got away with it :thumbsup:

I did the same thing, then upgraded my account to include games which automatically cancelled the trial and debited my account for the full fee oops :oops: so be careful if they advise/offer to just upgrade to one of the games packages.

if they think i'm not eligable, are they likely to charge me without giving me a chance to cancel :oops:?

if i remember rightly from the thread i read, the email said if you would like to pay for the service then you could do so but that the free trial was being terminated. I dont actually think they can charge you without giving you a chance to cancel. As i say you may have got away with it but if you get a cancellation email i wouldnt be very suprised. Ill try and locate the thread with more information on the lovefilm trials for you.

thanks, but I've decided to cancel the account. after my exams are over I may try again and keep an eye out for the 'i want games' box - dont want to risk getting charged, with any luck they will now send me two 3 month codes at xmas this year
thanks again and rep added Cantona :thumbsup:
