Getting a Rental Account

To set up a rental account please provide:

government/state issued photo ID
credit or debit card

(If you don’t have a credit card, you can still open an account but you will need to leave a cash deposit for each title you rent. There is a minimum of $25 cash deposit for each title.)

Rental accounts are completely free to open.  In addition, we offer annual memberships which can help members save money on rentals and get other great perks not included with our basic rental account. Please consider supporting Scarecrow by becoming a member, which you can learn more about here.

There is a return box located in the window to the right of the counter. When the store is closed, you may also return rentals to the night dropbox in the front door.

Rental items are due by 8:00pm.

Late Fee Policy

Late fees are the FULL rental cost per day, per title. For example, if you have two $4.50 rentals out and are two days late, your late fee would be $18. We do understand that occasionally you won’t be able to make it in on time. You are always welcome to bring late titles to the attention of a manager.

If you need your rental(s) for a few extra days, the best way to avoid late fees is by renewing. Just call the store before 8:00pm on the due date and we’ll check them out to you again.

Late titles returned through the drop box will automatically be charged the the credit card on file.  If you would like to take care of any late fees in cash or if you have any questions or issues, please talk to someone at the counter.

2 for 1 Wednesdays

Every Wednesday we offer 2 for 1 rentals. Here’s the fine print:

  • The free rental must be of equal or lesser value (yes, you can pay for an $11 rental and get another $11 rental for free).
  • You can only get one New Release per pair. It’s good for up to five pairs.
  • Does not apply to machine rentals.
  • Cannot be combined with any other offers.

Feel free to ask at the counter if you have any questions regarding 2 for 1 rentals. We also offer additional 2 for 1 rental days as exclusive perks to our memberships, find out more here.

Hard to Find or Out of Print Titles

Some titles which are difficult or expensive to replace may require a security deposit.  This can be done with a credit card or cash.
