2 months free rental with screenclick when you top up 20 euros at An Post
bull$hit - you need to be a new customer and add a credit card or pay a deposit but they dont tell you that until you go online
I am writing from Screenclick, yes, Existing members or those who have previously enjoyed a free trial with any Screenclick-powered site are not eligible. We do ask for credit card or laser card details as the confirmation of age (we don't want the kids to rent movies that they shouldn't be watching) and to secure our DVDs however there is no payment taken whatsoever. If you have any quesions just give us a call 0818 270 710 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
from the website it looks very good but to end your free trial you must return all dvds before your trial ends which might be difficult considering the punctuality of an post.

I was a member of moviestar.ie and screenclick in the past. Moviestar were far superior choice wise etc. Experience with screenclick not so good, charged incorrectly, an email to customer services not answered, selection of movies not brilliant.
Found screenclick pretty terrible myself also. Pretty much the same as what the other poster said. Havent tried moviestar.
Screenclick and moviestar merged I think. But none of the good things about moviestar were kept, in my experience.
I had one of these free trials with screenclick before, cancelled the account and returned all dvds at least a week before the trial ended yet they STILL charged my credit card for the next month. Stay away from them is my advice.
and what if you dont have a credit or debit card? is it still free no you must pay like 50 euros throught the post office
and there is no way of proving when they actually received your last dvds back so they could automatically charge or subscribe you and you have no way of contesting it!
Actually this was brought up in the thread in bargain alerts.....
the mail-based rentla thing sounds like a lot of hassle imo, especially when you can rent any new release for €2 in chartbusters
how are people supposed to know that this sylvia actually represents screenclick? and what authority does she have to over-ride the terms and conditions listed on their website?
i would be inclined towards the website terms and conditions as in the event of any dispute these are what screenclick will be quoting!
? and what authority does she have to over-ride the terms and conditions listed on their website?
you are right, I am not in the position to do it and I haven’t. Working here I know Screenclick’s T&C nearly by heart and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have. You can also email me email@example.com or call our support lines 0818 270 210
so if i post back the dvds and they are delayed in the post i will be subscribed to the bronze service at €12.99/month even with a proof of postage as the terms clearly state the dvds must be received by screenclick before the cancellation can be processed.
this seems like a real money making exercise as any company operating such a policy could claim items were returned and received by them late and the customer has no way of disputing this!
