I want to get a higher gamerscore, and to do that i must buy/rent games, and since renting would be much cheaper i want to go with it, but with out the hastle of running to and from movie rental stores.

I know the major sites like gamefly.com and others, but in order to use them i need a credit card, and being a sophomore in High School, do not have one and parents don't want to get involved. BUT I WANT TO FIND A GAME RENTAL SITE THAT USES PAY-PAL, for i DO have a paypal account that i can use to pay the monthly fees and wish to pay for it in that way. SO... does anyone know of a place that will accept paypal???

i dont think any site does, maybe www.gamesnflix.com (http://www.gamesnflix.com) ? thats the only other one i can think of and if they dont, then your stuck to going to the local blockbuster or hollywood video (or what ever else you have) to rent your games.

Checked into it and although it has great deals (the 3 at a time was cheaper than gameflys 2at a time by like $5) you had to use a credit card:mad:. Thanks anyway, unless anyone else has any sugguestions i guess it is back to 'iggle video :(.

You could always buy a Visa or Mastercard giftcard and use it to pay for the subscription.

youd have to do that monthly though, unless you put alot of money on it

Check with blockbuster. They have an online rental service now. Maybe if you have a card at a store already, you might not need a CC?

which is the best deal for renting both movies and games, for i could talk my parents into getting a game rental place if it had videos.

Gameznflix has great deals, but blockbuster is only a couple of bucks more, BUT on blockbuster it says:
"3 DVDs out at a time
Unlimited rentals
Return online or in-store
+FREE - in-store game rental"

does what i bolded mean that only i can rent games if i pick them up at the store, or can i rent online?

Also if anyone has either of these, please post on what you would give each site, pros, cons, etc.

just get a debit card from your bank. it is just like a credit card except there it just takes from what money you have in your account. i have had one since high school...

at blockbuster.com you cannot rent any games online, the free in-store game rental is a coupon you print out & they only give you 1 a month

looks like i'll talk my parents into getting gamesnflix then, the Debit card would work to if they don't budge, Thanks!

gamesnflix is great for east coasters, gamefly is best for west coasters. if ya in the middle it is a toss up. i say this becuase of travel time it takes longer from east to west and vice versa then from east to east i get my games in like a day.
