Talking Hollywoods is responding to our new prices

I'm a n00b and shouldn't be making treads but i did do a history search and came up with nothing.

Anyways the Hollywood videos around here are

1. giving away 1 free blue ray rental per day for the next month

2. repricing the bsi to .99

3. offering 1 free rental if you let them cut up your blockbuster card

4. giving a free rental if you sign up with an account with them

We got a letter sent to us about it.

Some of our employees have printed extra bb cards for customers so they could get free rentals

nothing like wasting company assets so your customers can not spend money at not your store.

They probably flag an account that has cut up a card after the first free rental so it doesn't get rendered multiple times. If they don't, the most it would work is twice before the employees got wise anyway and put a manual warning on the account.

My favorite is when customers remark to me how expensive our BSI movies are priced compared to Hollywood, then ask right after why the Hollywood across the street closed down.

Or why our movies are 4.99 when the Red Box is $1 a night.
