    Sorry, haven't yet. But I'd like to know too. They do seem to have some pretty good stuff.

    It is AWESOME I am a monthly member and have greatly enjoyed the videos. They are very quick to ship. It works *just* like NetFlix....so if you enjoy Netflix, you'll love Barn Sweet Barn

    Default Confused on fee

    FYI: joining is free "There are no fees to join barnSweetBarn.com! It’s free! "
    So I looked, because *nothing* is free (especially horses ). I found this
    The "monthly flat fees" are:
    One at a Time 1 disc 14 days $9.99
    MonthlyDuo 2 discs 14 days $17.99
    TriPack 3 discs 14 days $25.99

    You have to look a little to find that.

    Unhappy

    I am confused on the fees too! Does that mean that for three DVDs it's $50/month? I like their titles and whatnot, just a bit too expensive for me :-(

    Hmmmmm.....

    I pay $9.99 every month and I get one video at a time. I've currently had the video for about 2 months, LOL! I LOFF it

    Anyways, not sure what those "14 days" thing means.

    Also, I *believe* there's a trial period of 14 days....Try it for 14 days and if you don't like it, cancel it.

    Hope this helps!

    No no, it means that for $24.99 you can have 3 disks at a time- when you return those 3, you can get 3 more, but you can have 3 total out at a time.

    For $9.99 you can have one out at a time.

    It looks like a fabulous idea, but they need to build up their dressage library before it would be worth it for me.

    Yes I am interested for the dressage stuff mainly too. And you guys are right it is hard to find all the "fees" details on their site.

    So if you do the 9.99$ per month, you get one DVD at a time, got that. Does that also mean that if your return a DVD 3-4 times a month, that you could still end up watching 3-4 a month for the 9.99$, but just one at a time?? That is how I am reading it.

    Thanks for all your comments!

    OK...so is there a limit per month as to how many you can rent? Say for the $9.99 plan, you rent one and send it back when finished, then get another...does it mean there is a limit of 3 total per month? Or could I get say 4-5 titles per month...but only have one out at a time?

    Oops, sorry, just saw where SCFHan posted the same question. Guess we were thinking the same thing.

    Be great if they continue to upgrade their selections. They already have a number I'm interested in viewing.

    Yep, that's how the model of Netflix and BlockBuster online works. Once you return your one video, they send the next available video in your "queue." I am not sure whether this company provides prepaid shipping envelopes, but with NF/BBO the monthly fee also includes all shipping both ways.

    So, if you are fast with your turnaround, you could have a different video every week to watch, all for the same monthly rate.
