Buy movies online for cheap. DVD's under $5
Where to buy cheap movies online
I will not spend more then $5 on any movie.
Even if it's a new blockbuster hit that only came out a few months ago. There is no secret, or special site or anything to it. The only catch is shipping and handling ( S&H ). Which is under $3. Most of the movies I buy are actually under $1. So if I get a movie for $0.89 ( which is a lot ) and I add S&H its still under $4, well under my $5 max.
How are these movies so cheap? Basic rules of Supply And Demand!
Low prices on thousands of DVDs. Used DVDs starting at just $0.01
Online shopping for thousands of DVDs from all movie genres, television & studio specials, documentaries, family & educational DVDs & more at everyday low prices.

The not-so secret place to buy movies online.
I buy all my movies at Amazon.com
If you look in the right places of amazon you will find the best movie deals out there. Granted, They might not have your particular movie for under $5. It may be on other sites cheaper like eBay or Half.com. But most people on eBay trick you with the S&H so be careful.
The right place for these super cheap DVD's is in the Used Section. Type in what ever DVD you want like " James Bond Casino Royal " and you will see several price options. Example-You can buy from Amazon.com for $4.49 or you can buy it new (from "other sellers") for $3.00 or $0.99 for a used DVD.
Not Everyone wants a USED DVD. But...
Let me explain this a little. Click on " Used " it will most likely bring up several sellers. Read the Condition. Some will say Very Good, Acceptable,and Like New. Ask yourself, do I want a Very Good DVD or just an acceptable DVD? Also read the small Descriptions, some may say "Minor stratches. Overall works just fine. Get yours for cheap" I would not buy a DVD that says it has scratches. so make sure in the description is says things like " Great condition, no scratches, guaranteed to play. " Chances are if you buy a DVD and its not how the seller described you will get your money back. So its a win/win.
I will be frank, I have purchased at least 250 DVD's from amazon this way. I have never sent anything back. One time I bought Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon for less then $3 including S&H and the case was broken, the DVD was in great condition. So I was happy to get a cool movie for under $3. I actually later on sold it to a lady at work for $5 So it was definitely a good deal for me!
Get the entire spider man trilogy for $2 Plus shipping comes out to about $10.00 ! For the whole set!

Lord of the Rings
The entire Lord of the Rings Trilogy for under $1.50 ! The total cost is about $10 with S&H
The Fellowship of the Ring $0.32
The Two Towers $0.15
The Return of the King $1.00
Trilogy for Less then $15
Pirates of the Caribbean
The Black Pearl $0.99
Dead Mans Chest $0.70

Whole set for around $14.00 including S&H so its still less then $5 per movie.
Al Pacino Movies
Serpico $2.68 ( well worth it, great movie! )
Donnie Brasco $2.19 ( another Amazing film and it has Johnny Depp )
Devils Advocate $0.17
Righteous Kill $0.74
So you get the idea right?
Excellent, so now you and your family can reap the rewards of supply and demand. As you can see, its not about the actors or how great the movie is.Its about how many copies are out there.
Jim Carey I think is one of the funniest men alive. Been watching his goofy comedies, for over 10 years, he is an excellent actor. Yet his movies sell for pennies!
Al Pacino Is one of the best actors of our time. And his movies are selling incredibly cheap!
A Little Secret Trick
I use this trick every year.
Around the new year I start adding all kinds of movie to my shopping cart. Yep, tons, at least 50 movies. I go through and place every movie I want from the used section in there. I will not pay over $5 including Shipping for my movies. So, if a movie like Serpico, is $2.68 that is over my $5 rule. I will place it in my shopping cart anyway. If that movie sells, or if a new one is listed for less then $2.68 I will be notified next time I visit my cart. It will tell you how much it went up or down.
So go through Amazon. Put tons of movies in your cart, even if you are not going to buy them today because they are too expensive. I use $5 for a limit, your limit may be more or less. Remember, there are plenty of movies on Amazon selling for $0.01. You just have to find them.
I find the best way to find these cheap DVD's are when you type in an actors name in the search or a title with multiple films. Like The Matrix
