Netflix Is Randomly Sending Up to 10 Extra DVDs by Mail to Subscribers

As Netflix winds down its long-running DVD-by-mail service, the company is preparing to ship out its last few discs before shutting it for good.

Netflix launched its DVD mailer program 25 years ago, at the time, operating out of co-founder Reed Hastings’ California home. Hastings said he was inspired to start the company after being fined for returning a movie late to Blockbuster.

Loyal fans of the DVD service will have the opportunity to be treated to a “finale surprise” from Netflix, the company wrote in an email to customers. Those who opt into a limited promotion will be eligible to randomly receive up to 10 DVDs from their queue by mail.

“You won’t know if any extra envelopes are headed your way until they arrive in your mailbox!,” Netflix continued.

Available while supplies last, DVDs will be mailed out by September 29. Customers will be able to return them by mail up until October 27.

“We wish you happy viewing and truly thank you for being part of our final season. Enjoy each and every red envelope,” the company concluded.
