Netflix reduces prices

October 24, 2004

dvd-casePossibly due to Blockbusters recent foray into online video rentals, or in spite of it, Netflix has reduced their prices. Below is part of an email I received from Netflix. If you were looking for a reason to try them out, it doesn’t get much better than this.

“Over the last five years, we’ve grown the Netflix community to over 2.2 million satisfied members. We appreciate your business, and our goal has always been to provide you great service.

“Since our price increase in June, some of our members have expressed concerns about the new pricing. We’ve listened to this feedback and are pleased to inform you that we’re lowering the price of your Netflix 3-at-a-time program from $21.99 per month to 17.99 per month.

“You don’t need to do anything. Your membership will automatically move to the lower 17.99 price. The lower price will appear on your next bill on or after November 1, 2004. You will still get the same great service and convenience, but now you will pay less for it. So please sit back, relax and enjoy your movies!

-Your Friends at Netflix”

Normally when someone ends an email with “your friends” their jacking up the price. This time I’m glad to say it’s the opposite.
