Big sale at fivecentnickel - everything must go!

Actually, Nickel over at fivecentnickel.com is having a contest. To celebrate his 2nd blogging anniversary, he's giving away iPods, USB Microdrives, and other great prizes. This is very sporting of him! Do yourself a favor - please proceed directly to his site and enter today.

Nickel is enjoying his Blockbuster Total Access service so far. I don't watch movies all that often (sports, sports, sports!), so I don't think I'd get my money's worth out of such a service. But, I received an email from a friend yesterday inviting me to try Netflix for one month free. He has been a member since Xmas 2006 and can't say enough good things about it. Netflix is allowing him to give away one month free to his friends, so I may give it a try.

I have actually been contemplating investing in Netflix (NFLX). The price has been oscillating between $20 and $30 for almost two years now, and it looks attractive at its current price. But then I talked with another friend of mine who has Blockbuster Total Access. He is a fellow investor - we trade stock picks and advice all the time. He cautioned me against investing in Netflix, as he thinks Blockbuster Total Access has them beat. Netflix has introduced a new download service, but it has not been enough to entice me to invest. Peter Lynch once said, "Buy what you know." I use neither service, but it seems Blockbuster has a huge competitive advantage now. The winds seem to be blowing Blockbuster's way.

Thanks again to Nickel for throwing a great second birthday party!

Hi
Great site. This is my first visit.
Netflix or Blockbuster? Hands down you have got to get Blockbuster! You can probably still get two weeks free, and I have to say it is much much better than netflix, and i REALLY liked Netflix when I had it.
Blockbuster you don't have to wait for new movies, you can just walk into the store and get a new one for free when you return your mail ordered movies. And if your store is still giving out rain checks, make sure and get one if you can when you go in for your free movie.
Great deal :-)

Once we think about the concept of the word appreciate, with relation to its a romantic association with a different, yet to be a sense that is engendered once you have miltchmonkey a better association on your own way too -- and even for a a feeling of increased unity household or even human beings -- the idea turns into far more crystal clear that every one someone is looking for in life is usually really like.
