Membership and Billing

You can find the specific details regarding your subscription with Mailbox Movies at anytime by clicking on the "My Account" tab, located at the top of the pages of the Mailbox Movies Web site.
  • Free Trials
    Free trials are only available to new subscribers of the Mailbox Movies service. Previous subscribers or trialists of Mailbox Movies, DVDs365, Qflicks or Movietrak do not qualify for a free trial.  Only one free trial may be redeemed per household and a free trial may not be combined with any other offer. You must have internet access and a valid credit/debit card to redeem a free trial offer. People who break this rule will be charged the monthly subscription, without notice, for any additional trial taken.

    Upon registering for your free trial, your credit card will be authorized for approximately three months of service. No charges, however, will be made against the card unless you do not cancel prior to the end of your free trial period or you do not return DVDs before the end of the trial.

    The free trial will end once you have rented the maximum allowed DVDs for the trial period or at the end of the period of your trial, whichever is reached first. The DVD limit for your trial period is displayed in the "My Account" section. You may choose to become a full member at any time during the free trial period.

    We will begin billing your credit card for monthly subscription fees for the Mailbox Movies Service once you have rented the next DVD after your maximum allowed or your trial period has ended, whichever is reached first, unless you cancel prior to the end of your free trial and return DVDs before the end of the trial. We will continue to bill your credit card on a monthly basis for the Mailbox Movies Service until you cancel.

    You must cancel your account and return DVDs before the end of your free trial period to avoid charges to your credit card. For instructions on how to do this, see the section on 'cancellation' below.

    Mailbox Movies reserves the right to change the free trial offer without notice.
  • Billing
    As a subscriber to Mailbox Movies, you agree that we are permitted to charge your credit card a monthly subscription fee and any other charges you may incur in connection with your use of Mailbox Movies. The subscription fee will be billed at the beginning of your subscription and on each monthly renewal thereafter. If the maximum number of rentals has been reached for that subscription period, your account will be put "on-hold". You can then choose to wait until your next payment date before further DVDs are sent or you can log in to your account and start the next subscription period immediately. The maximum number of rentals for a subscription period is shown in the package information section and also in the "My Account" section. We will automatically charge your credit card each month on or after the calendar day corresponding to the commencement of your membership unless you choose to start the next subscription period earlier. All fees and charges are non-refundable. We may change the fees and charges in effect, or add new fees and charges from time to time, but we will give you advance notice of these changes by email. If you want to use a different credit card or if there is a change in your credit card validity or expiry date, you may edit your credit card information by clicking on the "My Account" button, available at the top of most pages of the Mailbox Movies Web site. If you have not cancelled your subscription and your credit card expires we reserve the right to automatically change the expiration date on your credit card.
  • Annual Membership  
    A discounted annual membership is available for each subscription package. The fee is charged for one year's subscription in advance. We do not provide refunds or credits for any partial annual subscription period.
  • Automatic Renewals
    Your Mailbox Movies subscription will be automatically renewed each month. For your convenience, we will charge the regular subscription fee to the credit card you provide to us during registration (or to a different credit card if you change your account information). Your membership will automatically renew for successive periods' subscriptions, without prior notice to you, unless and until you cancel your membership or we terminate it, or you choose to start the next subscription period earlier having rented the maximum allowed for the period. You must cancel your membership before it renews in order to avoid billing of subscription fees to your credit card.
  • Expired or Invalid Credit Cards
    The terms we agree with you are dependent on a valid credit card being available for charging each month. Should your credit card expire, or reach its credit limit, we send you a reminder to that effect.

    If you do not update your card details and continue to keep your rented disks you will be charged at the rate of 1.50 per day for each disk not returned. This is to allow us to continue to provide a high level of service to other members.

    If you have any difficulties with your credit limit, then we advise you to freeze your account (disks must be returned before freezing takes effect) and unfreeze when funds become available.

    In all circumstances you must return disks to us when you are failing to make payment, to avoid unnecessary charges and potential legal action.
  • Delivery and Return of DVDs
    We currently use the Royal Mail, first-class postage prepaid, to deliver and return the DVDs you have selected to view. Actual delivery times may vary for you depending on (i) our stock availability, (ii) your delivery address, (iii) when you make your selection and (iv) circumstances impacting delivery by the Royal Mail. Any delays in the Royal Mail delivery times are outwith the control of Mailbox Movies. Mailbox Movies, therefore, is not responsible for Royal Mail postal delays or misdirected mail.It is your responsibility to ensure that your address has been entered correctly, including your postcode. If you change address, you must update your address details in My Account to ensure that no DVDs are sent out to the wrong address. Please ensure this is done before you move as you will be liable for any DVDs posted to the wrong address. You may wish to use our Freeze facility during your move.

    You agree to treat the DVDs and their associated packaging with the utmost care at all times. You agree that you may need to compensate Mailbox Movies for any DVD lost or returned in an unacceptable condition (beyond reasonable wear and tear) - and that you allow Mailbox Movies to charge such compensation to your credit card. We will notify you of any such charges. Should a member withhold payment and fail to return DVDS when requested, then Mailbox Movies will pursue the member for the cost of these DVDs and all associated legal and recovery expenses.
  • DVDs Lost or Delayed in the Post  
    If a DVD is delayed or lost in the post this should be reported using Report a Problem on the website. If the DVD has been lost in return, a form declaring postal loss will be sent to you for completion. A receipt of posting should be attached if this was obtained from a Post Office when the DVD was returned. If you have been affected by a postal delay or loss we recommend that you obtain a receipt of posting for any further DVDs returned by you. A receipt of posting must be attached to the form declaring postal loss for second or subsequent losses. For any DVD reported missing, the form declaring postal loss must be returned within 7 days, otherwise you will be charged the full recommended retail price of the DVD. Any fraudulent declarations will result in termination of your account and immediate and full prosecution.
  • Cancellation
    As noted above, you may cancel your subscription to Mailbox Movies at anytime. It is essential to cancel your membership no later than the day before your next payment date, so that you are not charged for a month's membership, and before returning your last DVD so that we do not send another.

    It is also essential to cancel via the web site to ensure that your payments are ceased in the proper manner. Please note the onus is on you to cancel.

    To cancel, click the "My Account" tab and follow the instructions under the heading "Cancel My Membership." We do not provide refunds or credits for any partial monthly or annual subscription periods. Upon cancellation, you must return any outstanding DVDs to Mailbox Movies prior to your next payment date, getting a receipt of posting as proof of return. If the DVDs are returned after your next payment date you will be charged for the next month's subscription  (We allow 2 days to compensate for any postal delay). Failure to return such DVDs will result in your credit card being billed for such items. If we have sent a DVD to you that you have not received, you must notify Mailbox Movies of this within 7 days of it being dispatched and before cancelling, otherwise you will be billed for the item.
