    I have not used MoviePass, but have fallen victim to purchasing a rug cleaning service’s special package that, within one year from the date I signed the contract, entitles me to have up to three service trips to: 1. Clean a specified amount of upholstery 2. Have a rug of a specified size steam cleaned or 3. Have the a specified amount of grout in my bathroom cleaned. Sounded like a great deal when compared to the price I had just paid to have 3 carpets cleaned. Unfortunately, I “filed” this “contract” somewhere–and promptly forgot about it. Sadly, I just realized the one-year timeframe had expired without being used. Ouch!
