I’ve been with Netflix since January 2003. That’s a LONG time. My sister Jen posted about a cool tool called the Netflix History Analyzer which analyzes your rental history to see if you are making the most of your membership. Looks like I am. Bear in mind – these numbers are skewed because we had a hiatus period during our membership. We put it on hold from December 2007 – June 2008. So there are six months there where we didn’t rent ANYthing at all.
You’ve rented 509 DVDs over 76 months from January 09, 2003 to April 10, 2009. Your plan costs $13.99/month so you’ve paid $1063.24 total. Your average price per rental was approximately $2.09 each. Average rental costs elsewhere are $3.75 each (not including late fees). You’ve saved approximately $845.51 over that time period or $11.13 per month.
Here’s some more about your renting habits…
You kept each rental for around 9 days on average. The longest you kept a single DVD was 47 days. You rented about 7 DVDs each month. You’re not taking full advantage of your current plan. You could be renting 13 DVDs each month.
First movie ever rented from Netflix: Death to Smoochy
Last movie rented: Changeling (which arrived in today’s mail)
I’d love to see my friend Ace’s stats. I bet they are through the roof since he rents more movies than any person I know.
