How Gamefly Works

My GameFly Story. A tale of savings and awesomeness.

When the Xbox One came out, I was one of the lucky ones to score a console the day of launch. Of course I got a couple games and two extra controllers to do battle with my friends and family. Before I knew it I was was out over $700!

So, I played my two games and wanted to move on to the latest and greatest. But after separating myself from more than $700, I wasn't exactly thrilled at the prospect of paying $60 for each new title I wanted to play. What I really needed was a service kind of like Netflix, but for video games. I needed video game rentals by mail. Enter Gamefly. They are basically like Netflix, but for video games. How cool is that?!


Let's face it. There are a lot of great games with no replay value.

There are a lot of great games out there. Some of them, however, just don't have that much replay value. You play them once enjoy the heck out of them, and then they just collect dust! GameFly is the perfect solution for this. When you're done with the game, just send it back. Or if you love it and want to keep it, you can buy it from GameFly, usually at a nice discount.


GameFly is super affordable. Less than your daily coffee.

For less than your daily cup of coffee, your daily tolls, your daily soda or bottled water, your daily whatever... GameFly lets you rent one game at a time for around 50 cents a day, and two games for around 75 cents a day.

If you can make it through just one game a week, that's $3,120 each year in video games for only pennies a day.

Want to take a break from gaming? No problem! With Gamefly you can rent Blu-rays and DVD movies too, and lots of 'em.
