Dear fellow film fan,
It is with little pleasure that we write to let you know that recent trading conditions have tipped from what we might describe as "challenging" to "critical", and so AroVideo is once again in active survival mode.
In order for us to lift our head above the rising waters, we’ve put together a few ideas for what we call The AroVideo Survival Guide 2019, which includes refining options for supporting our library, flattening our rate for Adopt-a-Movie, and a holding a mega sale of thousands of donated and ex-rental DVDs. We are also looking at constraining our trading hours, so more news on that shortly.
You can read more detail in my post on our Patreon platform, where we’ve also sharpened our prices and rewards to offer better value for those who regularly engage in our in-store rental services, and the opportunity to passively support us if you are a lapsed or infrequent customer.
So here are some of the Monthly Support options available through Patreon:
Become a Subscriber Friend (aka a Jolly Good Friend) for the reduced price of US$25 per month and receive Unlimited In-store Rentals (including New Releases). [Saving 19% off standard price]
Become a Good Friend for US$7.50 per month and receive 2 rentals per month (including New Releases). [Saving 32% off standard price]
Become a Pen Friend for US$3 per month and receive 1 complimentary catalogue rental per month. [Saving 27% off standard price]
Become an Absent Friend for US$1 per month and receive 2 complimentary catalogue rentals per year. (We’d much appreciate if you could pass on or mention to any "Absent Friends" you might know of!)
And/or Adopt-a-Movie for US$2 per month for naming rights and free rental anytime of you own personal favourite film.
Thank you for showing our Patreon
account some love, and please note that complimentary rentals are available to in-store customers and as "bonus" rentals to Home Delivery customers.
