Netflix 'trials'.

Submitted by Dystopia_Drifter in illegalism

I've been rolling through trials for a few months now cycling through my different online payment methods, finally getting roadblocked at a massively overdrafted bank account.

Today I found a prepaid Credit card on the ground (I thought it was a 'tap' method debit card and was going to go shopping) I went home and threw in the magic imprinted numbers, low and behold approved. I will be finishing Star Trek: the next gen.

Story telling aside, does anyone know if payment method is the variance required for these trials? I tried two separate emails with one payment method and it didn't work (my empty but accepted paypal) With this prepaid card ($1.50) balance I'm hoping to use a different email in a month, OR I've read (though the article was outdated) about using 'typo's in your email registration (example@fake.com = exam_ple@fake.com) and using the same payment method. Does anyone have experience with this?

Best method I've found is to use my bank account to make virtual one time use prepaid cards with only one dollar on them using the website privacy.com The transaction ends up getting declined at the end of the month from not enough funds so even the one dollar never leaves my account :) Using privacy along with creating new emails every month just using mail.com has been working like a charm for me for months now for netflix, hulu, hbonow, etc. Hope that helps!

So I'm setting this up right now. When you set up stuff on privacy did you use your real name and info for that?

Yeah otherwise I doubt it'll let you link your bank account, but when you're making the free trials you can just make up whatever name/address to give to them. That's the real beauty of using privacy. Also it may or may not matter but I use a vpn when creating the trial accounts just so they don't see the same ip address creating them, but unless you're creating a bunch at the same time it probably doesn't matter.

This looks like something I would benefit from.Thanks! I'll test it out maybe on hbonow, I was unaware they had a streaming service.

I like this trick. Strongly tempted to make use of it if and when I ever get my own place.
