Kidvids have a new look! They work the same as they always have: you still get one free per visit when you rent another video, but they're now in smaller, thinner, blue cases. These aren't Blu Ray discs-- our Blu Rays are still in tall cases with the large blue banner at the top-- they're the same KidVids they've always been, with the same orange KidVid sticker, but the cases look a bit different.
KidVids are normal DVDs (they are not Blu Ray discs)
One KidVid is free per visit with another rental
Only one KidVid is free: additional KidVids rented the same day are $2.00 each
Free KidVids are in blue cases with orange KidVid stickers on the front and side
With the arrivals of Blu Ray & 3D Blu Ray, the new higher definition format of discs, finding the movie you want in the format you’re looking for has become slightly more challenging. However, there’s no need to fear, as this guide should answer most common questions about the integration of new formats into our stock of new films.
There are a few simple ways to see if what formats are available, and to tell the difference between the different formats. Behind any title we stock in Blu Ray, we’ll have a backer like the one in the picture to the left, indicating that we have both Blu Ray and DVD.
Though the physical discs look about the same, the cases have one major difference. Let’s use Iron Man as an example. All Blu Rays have a wide blue band running across the top of the case, with the Blu Ray logo in the center of it. These discs will not play in a regular DVD player. If you’re looking for a DVD copy and all you see at first is a Blu Ray, don’t fret too much. We keep the Blu Rays in the front of the stack, with the DVDs behind. Just take a peek behind the Blu Ray copies until you find a DVD copy (without the blue band across the top).
The addition of the new backers has made our “Recommended By” and “Reckless Recommends” backers a little more complicated, though not impossible to decipher with the help of this guide.
The basic rule of thumb is that if the backer is blue, we stock the title on Blu Ray, and if the backer is violet, we stock the title on 3D Blu Ray.
A yellow backer with some of our faces on it means some of us recommend it, and it’s only available on DVD. A blue backer with our faces on it again means that some of us recommend it and we have it on both Blu Ray and DVD, even though our faces took the place of the Blu Ray and DVD logos.
Same thing goes for the Reckless Recommends backers. An orange backer with the star and “Reckless Recommends” means that we all recommend the title, but we only have it available on DVD. Again, a blue backer with the same logo and text indicates that we all like the title and we have it on both Blu Ray and DVD.
Reckless Video just changed the way you give movies as gifts: no more paper gift certificates, we now have Reckless Video Gift Cards. The cards spend just like cash; you buy a card for a friend or a family member, and the cards are good for anything at Reckless.
The cards are available in $10, $25, $50, $75, and $100, and on sale now, just in time for the holiday season.
Our pre-spun DVDs are on sale for $3.00 and our Blu-Rays sell for $4.00 on the rack in front room.
