  1. First, Netflix does not ship on Saturdays or Sundays or holidays so those days are excluded.  For example, May 29, 2006 is a postal holiday.  After subtracting these days we are left with 22 shipping days.
  2. If it takes 3 business days for Netflix rentals to reach your home from your local distribution center then you should receive your rentals on the fourth day.  For example, if Netflix ships your rentals on the 1st of the month you should receive them at your home by the 4th.
  3. In this example, if you return your rentals as soon as you receive them on the 4th, Netflix should receive them on the 9th.  This cycle is repeated throughout the entire month.
  4. Add up all the days rentals are delivered to your home.  In this example there are 4 days.
  5. Multiply that number by your subscription plan for the total number of rental possible each month.  For example, if you had a 3-at-a-time subscription plan during May 2006, 12 is the maximum possible rentals in that month (3 x 4).

Although this model explains how someone could receive 12 rentals in 1 month, most subscribers will not experience this type of activity.  Subscribers will most likely keep their rentals at least 1 business day.  For example, someone returning from work at 5:00 pm will not be able to watch their rentals that arrived that day and return them to the post office before it closes.
