I don't know how DVD rental places work, I've never really used them. They're cheaper right? That's the purpose of renting. Anyways, I was wondering if I could, while say, driving through some town that I'll never go back to, stop by the rental place and rent a ton of DVDs, then never return em'. What type of info do the shops ask of you? Do they have any system to track stolen DVDs? Any (bad) ideas?
Or, is it still a possibility?
Or just torrent them.
They might also restrict how much you rent at once.
Pretty much this, it's fail proof and I'm sure everyone who's ever rented a DVD has ripped a copy I wouldn't rent the DVD's out and never return them as they'll have your face on camera the moment you walk into the store. Not the best idea.
Fuckin' word. DVDs go for £3 MAX down the Car Boot sale. Not worth it in the slightest.
Bitch. I actually tried something like this the other day (tried to pay with an amex gift card), and (of course) it wouldn't take it. You also have to factor in the cost of paying the gift card activation fee (usually $5 and up, depending on the value) and also lose the amount that is left on the card. Since RedBox now only lets you rent 2 discs the first time you use a particular credit card, you'll proabably end up paying more than just renting them at $1/each and ripping at home and then returning.
