Just read in one of the threads about Fatso Games, and after checking the website, prices, terms and conditions etc it seems to be rather decent and exactly what I need as the local video stores have a very poor selection of games, have high prices ($8 overnight) and are mostly always out.

As a result of this and a refusal to spend any money on purchasing a game in case it is not liked, my poor Xbox 360 has been sitting unloved for well over a year.

Are there any other companies in New Zealand that also offer the same as Fatso Games

Recommendations, warnings etc

I signed up when there was a deal on grabone of $50 credit for $5. I haven't had any issues with it. Had a bit of delay with new release games as they're popular (especially for my PS4). Can only say good things about it. You should look around for deals before you sign up. I think you can get $5 credit when you sign up with the promo code that's on the site, you will probably be able to find better ones though.

I found a coupon code that gave me $20 in credit, which worked

Added two games to rent list, and one on reserve
My only gripe is that even though I have the credit they still put holds on my visa card for everything including the reserved game

Little bit disappointed that the games I ordered yesterday didn't ship yesterday
Meaning no games over the holiday period

Update to this
Got my first games on Friday, returned them on Monday

Slightly annoyed that I seem to be charged twice because I have credit with the store
They pre charged my card 5 days when I rented, but have been taking the daily amount off my credit. Am waiting impatiently for the card hold to be dropped and for them to answer my questions.
