Vudu - Get any 3 rentals for .99 each (Ymmv?)

+1 Deal Score

Got an email from Vudu indicating they're offering any 3 rentals for .99.

I believe this is targeted for new customers that don't have any payment attached to their VUDU account.
Edit: I just added my Paypal to the Vudu account and all rentals were .99.

I signed up for this and you don't know if it works or not until you rent the movie... I didn't go all the way through the checkout in case it doesn't work.

Here is the FAQ

How long do I have to watch my rentals?

Once you start watching you have from 24 to 72 hours to finish, depending on the title. When you complete the rental process, the confirmation window will specify how many days you have to finish the title once you start it. Vudu lets you take up to 30 days to start a rental. That's literally a whole month, so you have plenty of time to find some free time.

Which movies are eligible? Can I rent any movie?
You can rent any movie we have available to rent in SD or HDX format. UHD rentals are not eligible for this offer. Don't worry if you qualified for the offer but don't see 99¢ rental pricing, all discounts will be applied at checkout.

Can I rent 3D titles?
If a 3D title is rental eligible then you can pick it as one of your three rentals for 99¢. You can even make all three picks 3D. That's three 3D. Which is like 9D. Which is impossible in our dimension, but could be possible in the dimension of one of your 3D movie picks. Mind blown.

I already have a payment method on file, can I get in on this?
Unfortunately, no. We appreciate that you love Vudu and are itching to watch some movies, but this offer is only eligible to for sign ups who put payment method on file for the first time. If it makes you feel better, think of all the great movies and TV shows you've been able to enjoy since you've signed up.

What about me? I have an account but never entered a payment method, can I get in on this?
If you've never had a payment method associated with your account, and add a credit card, PayPal account, or Walmart Gift Card during the offer period, then you can get in on the action. This offer is limited to one account per billing address, so no tomfoolery

I have an Xbox and already have a credit card on file for Xbox Live, do I need to add another one to Vudu?

Yes, to qualify for this offer you need to add a credit card or PayPal account when you sign up for Vudu. You can use the same credit card with the same billing information that you use for Xbox Live and qualify for this offer

Which payment methods are eligible for this offer?
To redeem this offer you must attach a credit card or a PayPal account to your account.

Where can I watch my rentals?
You can watch your 99¢ rentals, and any other movie you rent or buy, on most of your favorite devices. That's the beauty of Vudu, you can watch your movies and TV shows anytime, anywhere. And if you get our latest mobile app (available for iOS and Android), you can even download your rental and watch offline.

It's not as easy as this. You dont know if you are eligible until after you rent the movie. I'm not going to chance it in case it doesn't work. They should just put the .99 price during the search process...

Mine show $.99 when searching. The regular price for SD & HDX is crossed out and it shows $.99 fwiw

I've never rented a HDX title before; received a free UHD copy of the new Star Trek. Are the HDX movies in digital sound (DD;DTS) or just plain old stereo?

eta: never mind; clicking on more info it says DD+

Not sure why the thumbs down on this one. It was very easy and I had no problem getting all 3 rentals for .99. Thanks OP!

Boohoo and 100% incorrect. You clearly did something wrong. This is a great deal.

Go away clown. I was able to rent Magnificent 7, The Accountant, and Deepwater Horizon all for .99 cents each. It's a great deal. And there are far more then 10 titles to pick from. I'm guessing at least 100 if not more.

I was able to rent almost everything in there movie catalog for .99 cents. I think that you were just at the Vudu home page. Click on the Movie tab and you will see their entire movie catalog and most you can rent for .99 cents. Ignore kevgret, he is clueless.
