Do You Ever Send Back Unwatched Netflix Discs?

Sorry Netflix discs: when the weather's nice, it's just hard to sit down and watch a movie.

Even though I'm having fun, my poor discs are left languishing — and whereas I used to just let the discs lie around unwatched, now I have started sending the unwatched discs back. Rather than rack up entertainment debt, I just resign myself to seeing the movie at another, more convenient time, so I can get something more compelling to watch. Of course, sometimes I also realize that I've put a movie on my queue I was never really interested in to begin with, and have no hesitation to send it back.

Hey, a girl's got to get her money's worth. And now that discs are being processed on Saturdays, it's even more worth it.

Tell me, what do you do with Netflix or Blockbuster discs you don't watch? Do you keep them till you watch them, or impatiently send them back like me?

If it's been more than a week, I send them back. It's a waste, but after 7 days I know I'll never watch it. This usually happens with Oscar nominated movies I think I should see, but decide will be too depressing.

I never return discs unwatched. Such a waste of time and money.

Yes, I am one who tends to send back unwatched movies. Sometimes I wonder why in the world I put that movie in my queue.

After about a week of them sitting around I usually send them back. Because if I didn't have enough interest to find some time to watch it then honestly I didn't want to see it anyway.

rarely, but yes I've sent movies back w/out watching them. Usually it's because I just wasn't in the mood to watch it when it arrived.. and the mood didn't strike me within a reasonable amount of time. I figure I can always re-request it if I want to.

yes.. a few times, knowing what the movie is, I've ripped open the envelope and resealed it, without leaving my mailbox.. that's what I get for slacking on my Netlflix game.. I end up getting movies I've already seen online (instead of waiting) and I forget to take them off my Queue

I send them back. If I haven't watched them in like 7 or 10 days, and feel like I have no motivation to watch them, they go back.

I usually keep them til I watch them. I've only sent back one disc unwatched. Well, two if you count the time I got halfway through a movie before the disc became unplayable and I sent it back (with an error report) but never finished it.
