What is GameFly And How does GameFly work?

Furthermore, you will also be able to rent thousands of movies (DVD and Blu-ray).
It is a premium video game and movie rental service, so there is a monthly cost for using the service.

How does GameFly work?

When you start your 30 day free trial and create your rental account than you will have access to thousands of games and movies that you can rent right away. To start, add a game or movie that you want into your “My GameQ”. As the games / movies become available, GameFly will automatically ship them out to you. You will be able to keep the games and movies for as long as you want.

After you are done playing or get bored with the games, simply send them back using the free prepaid shipping mailer. And after receiving your games, GameFly will automatically send you the next available games that are available in your queue. You also have the option to keep the games forever by purchasing the games at a discount price. The process is simple and should not take you too long to grasp.
When adding games and movies to your queue, make sure that you are putting the games and movies that you want to receive first on the top of the list.

GameFly cost

The GameFly offers you 2 different monthly plans. First one is $15.95 and the second is $22.95 a month. All new members get a 30-day free trial

  • One-game or movie rented at a time will cost you $9.50 a month for the first three months, and then $15.95 a month thereafter.
  • Two-games or movies rented at a time will cost you $13.50 a month for the first three months, and then $22.95 a month thereafter.

There are no other fees associated with the service and you can cancel your membership whenever you want. You do not pay for the shipping. All shipping fees are paid by GameFly.
I like the idea of being able to rent two games or movies at a time as it reduces the amount of time that I have to wait to receive a new game. But, it will come down to your preference and budget.
