Earlier in the thread they said they turned to open market for their codes and it turns out some of those people either purchased them with bad accounts or did charge backs etc...

I don't see the problem... I paid $67 for a year (normally 95.88... $28.88 savings). The $67 was refunded in January. They just turned off my Netflix yesterday, so I got about three months free ($23.97 value).

So in all... I didn't save $4.91 for something I was going to buy anyways. In turn, I received the ~$24 savings upfront with no commitment? I think it was still a win.

No win win, it was a PITAfrom the start they can keep the few free months.

As a followup to my previous post, just wanted to update for anyone else that may have gotten the shaft in the same way I did.

I thought I had things sorted out at the beginning of February. I reinstated my Netflix acct online and got a refund from AMEX because I disputed the charge. I had a netflix acct before this fiasco and had just paid for a month of service when the whole gift card crap happened. Lost the credit for about half of that paid month when I restarted my Netflix account online, but it was less than $5 so I wasn't about to waste any more time on the phone.

Got a second Netflix cancellation email today, about a month and a half after everything was supposed to be sorted out. My account was closed again, and I just paid for a month's service on March 2. Just spent 30 minutes on the phone with a CSR who didn't quite get exactly how I was losing money by not getting a full month's worth of service for a full month's payment. Twice. She wanted to close my account permanently and open a new account, not only failing to compensate me for lost credit but also losing my viewing history, ratings, genre preferences etc. from the past ten years of being a Netflix customer.

Finally somebody that she was talking to on her end(someone more technical or more empowered, I assume) was able to get my account reinstated with credit for one month from now, so at least I end up practically not losing any money (just a few days loss of service from the change in billing periods and lost service from my account being down). I just wish it didn't take multiple phone calls, frustrating CSR conversations, and multiple service outages to get to that point. I also have no idea if this is going to happen again.

I remember when Netflix had great customer service. Sadly, those days are no more.
That is why I love Hulu + 1 year membership dibuu Gift cards so u do not have to share credit card with "reputable" websites, worry free piece of mind is worth the most
