I used to watch a lot of Netflix with my brother, but for the past six months or so, I haven't even turned our television on for more than a few hours.
Since I can't sit still for long enough to get through an episode of pretty much any show, I usually watch all of my favorites on my tablet. I have the HBO2GO app and can access all of the major network's websites to stream shows once they've aired on TV.
This pretty much makes my Netflix subscription useless. Which it has been from the start, really. I've had it for a few years now, but when I think about it, I've probably only watched five or six movies and a few episodes here and there with it.
So... I was telling my brother that I was thinking about canceling the Netflix and he laughed at the fact that I actually pay money for it. He went on to tell me me how he has been getting free Netflix for the past six months or so.
He text me back a few minutes ago with this link, and said that he's been doing this forever and for more than just Netflix.
If you don't want to click the link, here's the summary:
1) He buys a $25 prepaid debit (refillable) card
2) Sets up a new throw-away email account
3) Sign up for Netflix and get a free month
4) Use the $25 prepaid debit card before the Netflix billing
5) Abandon the the prepaid card, email account, and Netflix subscription
Anyways, the only reason I posted about this is because I'm pretty much raging over the fact that Nikko has had a Netflix account the entire time he has lived here, and never even mentioned it.
