How does the DVD Rental Membership work?
Our DVD rental program allows you to rent an unlimited number of adult DVDs for a monthly price. You are allowed out a certain number of movies at a time depending on which membership plan you choose, but you can cycle them as often as you like. All DVD rental plans also include Unlimited Streaming at no additional cost.
You create your own rental list, known as "My Rental Lineup", from our huge selection of adult DVD movies, then we automatically mail you the first available movies from your list. Movies are shipped individually, via USPS First-Class Mail in a discreet, postage-paid return envelope, and should arrive in 2-7 business days. Once you watch the movie, simply place it back in its return envelope, drop it in any USPS Mailbox, and we will mail you the next available movie from your Rental Lineup as soon as we receive it back. Return one or all at a time!
No due dates. No late fees. No commitments. Cancel anytime.
How much does a DVD Rental Membership cost?
How many movies can I check out at once?
The number of movies that you can have out at any given time depends on the membership plan you are on. If you are on a 4 DVDs at a time program, you can have up to four titles checked out to you at once, but you can mail any of these four discs back at any time to get another. For each disc that you mail back to us, we mail you the next available one from your Rental Lineup.
How long can I keep a movie?
There is no limit to the length that you can keep a title. As long as you are a member, it's yours to hold onto. If you are really enjoying it, consider purchasing the copy you have by clicking the 'Buy My Copy' link on your Shipping Status
Can I buy the copy of the movie that I have rented?
Sometimes movies are too good to return. Or perhaps you want to 'try before you buy'. We allow rental customers to purchase the rentals that they currently have out on their account at a discounted rate since the disc is used. You will not receive the box cover or any other materials that come with the retail version of the disc. You simply keep the 'naked' DVD that you have and we mail you the next movie from your My Rental Lineup.
If you have a movie in your possession and you want to keep it, just click the 'Buy My Copy' link on your Shipping Status
page next to the movie you want to buy. Once you checkout, we will allow the next available movie from your "My Rental Lineup" to ship as soon as possible.
Why is my rental DVD unavailable for “Buy My Copy”?
Some rental DVDs may not be available for purchase for various reasons. DVDs may be fairly new releases, are in high demand by other customers, or have limited quantities left available. Although not available now, DVDs may be available for purchase in the future.
What is "My Rental Lineup"?
"My Rental Lineup" is the list of movies you've selected to rent. You can update or edit your Rental Lineup anytime. Initially, we'll send you the first available DVDs from your Rental Lineup (as many as your rental plan allows out at a time). When you're finished watching one of the DVDs you have out, send it back and we will ship the next available title from your Rental Lineup as soon as we get it back.
To add a movie to your Rental Lineup, browse the SugarInstant.com site and click the "Rent" button next to the titles that you would like to see. Titles are added to the bottom of your Rental Lineup.
To adjust the priority of movies, change the number in the "Priority" column and then click "Update Rental Lineup". It's also easy to change the priority of more than one movie at a time. Simply change the priority of as many movies as you want. To remove movies from your Rental Lineup, check the "Remove" box to the right of a title name. When you're done with all your changes, click "Update Rental Lineup" -- the site will make all the necessary changes.
Occasionally, I receive the second or third disc in My Rental Lineup before the first. Why does this happen?
When you return a movie or have an open slot in your Rental Lineup, we make every effort to ship your first choice. To help you get the most out of your membership, if a title in a higher spot is out of stock, we'll send your next available in-stock title. This way, you will always have great movies on hand!
I sent back a DVD but never got the next one in My Rental Lineup.
Once a title you return has been checked back into our inventory, you'll receive an email confirmation of its return. We'll then ship the next available title from your Rental Lineup. You can always check the Shipping Status
page on the site to see whether we have received the movie you've returned. If 7-10 days pass, and you don't receive a confirmation email from us, please use the Shipping Status
page to report it as 'already returned'.
A title disappeared from My Rental Lineup and I can't find it on the site anymore! Am I going crazy?
Occasionally we'll have to remove a title from our selection that is no longer available to rent. This is due to either a high breakage rate, or because it is out of print from the studio. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
Are there any places you won't ship to?
Yes, but just a few. We ship to United States addresses and their territories. Due to community standards regarding obscenity, there are some shipping restrictions on certain areas of the country.

I am staying at a hotel or motel. Can I have my movies delivered to me there?
Due to losses, we feel it is in the best interest of SugarInstant.com not to ship to hotels or other such transitional addresses.
Are your movies sent by First-Class Mail?
Yes, all our discs are sent via First-Class Mail through the United States Postal Service. When you are ready to mail back your movies, simply drop the postage-paid return mailer in any U.S. Postal Service mailbox.
Will the shipping envelopes say "SugarInstant.com" on them?
No, your shipment will come in a paper envelope and will discreetly show as coming from "

Shipping activity may take place on your account anytime between 7am and 6pm PST.
For a complete list of postal holidays, please see the USPS Postal Holidays
How long will it take to get my movies?
When you have an open rental slot, we make every effort to ship your DVD as soon as inventory is available. Movies usually arrive within 2 to 4 days, but some movies may take longer than 4 days to arrive because of U.S. Postal Service delays.

How do I report a shipping problem or a disc that won't play?
If you have any shipping problems, such as delayed arrival of your rentals, or an unplayable DVD, you can report it on the Shipping Status
page. Please be sure to read the guidelines listed on the confirmation pages for information on when it is appropriate to report movies.
What if I don't have the white protective sleeve to mail the movie back?
If you don't have the white sleeve (the one with the movie title and description on it), be sure to include a note in the envelope with your email address and full name on it so we can properly credit your account.
What if I don't have the return envelope to mail the movie back?
Unfortunately, we are not able to mail out replacement envelopes. You can return up to two movies in one envelope or you may mail the DVD in your own padded envelope to:
What if a movie doesn't arrive after it is mailed?
It is very rare for a disc to disappear completely in the mail system. Discs that haven't shown up are generally delayed, usually due to weather or heavy mail volume. The Shipping Status
page is available for members to report any mail problems they may experience. Any discs that do disappear completely are tracked in the mail system and will be investigated by U.S. Postal Inspectors. If this becomes more than an occasional occurrence, we will be forced to suspend your account, pending receipt of all associated tracking data and a full investigation by U.S. Postal Inspectors.
When does my membership begin?
Your membership begins on the date that you signup for a DVD rental or Unlimited Streaming plan. If you are on a Free 10 Day Trial, your trial will begin (and include) your signup day and you will be automatically billed after the tenth day.
What day will I be charged each month?
Your monthly membership fee (plus tax if you are in the states of California or New York) is automatically billed on the monthly anniversary of your first charge. For example, if your first charge was on January 14, your next charge will be on the February 14, and the next charge on March 14 and so on until you cancel. You can find your billing date on the My Account page – under the Subscription Information section, click on the "View Service Plan Terms" for a detailed review of your membership plan.
I want to upgrade my membership, do I have to pay the new membership fee up front?
Membership upgrades are billed a prorated charge. This means the amount you pay will be the difference between the membership fees, divided by the number of days left in your billing cycle. For example, a TV Streaming plan ($7.95) being upgraded to a Beginner Rental plan ($10.95) with 10 days left in the billing cycle would cost $0.30 at the time of the upgrade.
I want to downgrade my membership, will I be refunded for excess monthly charges?
If you decide to downgrade your membership, you will be charged the updated membership fee on your next billing date. You will not be refunded for excess monthly charges, however your account will not downgrade until the next billing date.
How do I cancel my membership?
You can cancel your DVD Rental or Unlimited Streaming membership at anytime by visiting the My Account
page and clicking on "Cancel Plan" under the "Subscription Information" section. You will receive a cancellation confirmation number once the cancellation steps are complete.
Will my membership still be active if I cancel before my next billing date?
Any cancellations will immediately stop all functions of your membership plan. You will not have access to unlimited streaming and no new rentals will be shipped out. However, you will still be able to use and purchase pay per minute credits.
Can I pay with a check or money order through the mail?
We only accept payment via credit or debit card. This includes credit or debit cards with the Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover logos. We require a valid card to be on the account at all times to verify account information, secure orders, and prevent fraud.
Will "SugarInstant.com" show up on my credit card statement?
