When a company continues to decieve the public with "smoke & mirrors"...

Another "GLOWING" review of Blockbuster's practices...(not my review...just something to think about...)

Just i thought Blockbuster’s Total Access is on to something with the upcoming video game rentals, apparent something is going away, and if you are a Total Access subscriber, i guarantee you wouldn’t be pleased. I got this email from Blockbuster today with an exciting header that reads “No More Due Dates for free in-store exchanges”! That’s a shocker! Now I can keep my Total Access’s in-store redeems for as long as I want? Heck yeah but Wrong! The Blue Envelop online rental is up to no good: Yes, there will be no time frame for in-store exchange but it will count as the regular rented item, in other words, the upcoming Total Access will entitle you to access both in-store and online movies, but not longer free. Shame on them to continue promoting “Free” In-store exchange. Read the new Total Access features after the cut.

blockbuster

Coming soon, there will be no more due dates for your free in-store movie exchanges!
# In other words, as long as you are an active BLOCKBUSTER Total Access subscriber, you can keep your free in-store exchanges as long as you like.
# In order to eliminate due dates, the free in-store exchange from participating BLOCKBUSTERģ stores will now count towards the number of DVDs you may have out under your BLOCKBUSTER Total Access plan. Once you’ve returned your in-store exchange, we’ll then ship you the next available movie in your queue.
# Your free in-store exchanges will now show up on your Queue page and in your Rental History, making it easy to keep track of the movies you’ve rented.


Just some more "SMOKE & MIRRORS" from this bullshit company.

(I "Cut & Pasted" this...so excuse me if it doesn't show up properly.)

Sorry, I really don't see anything wrong with them doing that. They are a company in the business to make money. They went way overboard trying to keep up with net flix. This is the only logical step to keep the process flowing.

I am a franchise store... We will not honor that practice at all. If they are late... You pay the late fee. Online is a total waste of time to us. We get very little from BBI when we do those exchanges. So just hope you have a corporate store near you and be happy, LOL.

while I cant stand Kawliga, it doesnt change the fact that our outlook doesnt look good. I hope we pull it out, because I have a family to support and the job market here blows

i don't see what's wrong with this at all. it's a smart plan and it's fair to the stores.

if customers can't receive the next movie on their queue until they bring back in-store exchanged rentals, then all they have to do is limit how many movies they exchange. it's simple. if you have 3 out at a time, then only use 2 for exchanges, receive the third in the mail while you watch the 2 exchanges and continue this process in a way where you have at least one in-store exchange available every time you come into the store.

easy done.
