Peerflix: Movie Trading The Legal Way


Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Internet, Movies


Peerflix

If you are looking for a way to get movies for 99 cents a pop, look no further than Peerflix. Peerflix is an online trading post where members can create a list of DVD “haves” and “wants”, and match up their lists to other users on the service. If they find a match, they contact the other party, and set up the swap. The transaction costs 99 cents, and both parties walk away from the deal with a DVD they wanted to see in return for a DVD they no longer wanted. No late fees or due dates here, plus there is no monthly membership fee. Of course, there is an honor system here, which the site monitors closely. For the deal to be successful, both members must mail the requested DVD to the other person - and with that being the case, there are bound to be some snafus along the way. Still, it is a good way to trade DVD’s on a 1:1 ratio, rather than going to your local DVD shop and having to trade in 3 or 4 movies in exchange for the latest blockbuster.

Is it just me or are the peerflix dollars or whatever extremely expensive? I think I’m reading it right as movies sometimes costing 3 of those….around 27 bucks

Yeah but no one actually purchases Peerbux for the 9 bucks they cost, you just trade in your own DVDs and earn Peerbux.
