  • Morning Coffee: $1.99 Amazon rentals, new coupons & more


    Amazon’s current set of $1.99 Instant Video rentals include:

    • John Carter, which I saw in theater and really enjoyed – the critical reviews were unfair (4.3 stars in 854 reviews)
    • We Bought A Zoo, starring Matt Damon and directed by Cameron Crowe (4.3 stars in 248 reviews
    • The Artist, which won 5 Academy Awards (3.9 stars in 128 reviews)
    • Chronicle, a sci-fi thriller (3.4 stars in 224 reviews)

    When you rent a video from Amazon, you generally have 30 days to watch it, and 24 to 48 hours from the time you started watching it to finish it. Just an FYI, my husband and I watched a rental of 21 Jump Street over the weekend, streaming it to our TV via our Playstation 3, and it worked great.
