Sigh... Wish I'd never gotten my 6 month free trial in the first place, picked up a movie at the only local blockbuster left and sure enough it closed down like a week later. I got stuck with the move and there was no way for me to return it.

I was with a closing store and we could still check in rentals. We stopped doing rentals then stayed open another two months to sell inventory.

Their mailing service sucks unless you have a nearby store which most don't.

I can't complain for a free service, thanks again op.
A shame there isn't a good netflix+gamefly program though.

I wish Netflix and Gamefly would merge. Takes one day to get movies and 3-4 for games even though their basically coming from the same place. Availability for Gamefly is weak, but better than buying.

My 6 month trial I think ran out yesterday. I was going to let them charge me for a month or two since there were a few more things I wanted to get that Netflix doesn't have, but now I'm not so sure. The service was pathetic in that I'd only get 2 movies per month even when things were readily available. Once I got my 2, I'd get nothing for 2-3 weeks. If that was just a "feature" of the 6-month trial that is one thing, but no way would I want to pay $10 for just 2 movies per month.

You could red box like 8 movies for that price. With all the free redbox rentals I get from their texts I could never justify paying for a rental service again.

Oh man the service is pretty bad. I got a one month trial and was not sent anything from my queue... but when the month was up I was promptly charged... Got a refund and the account was cancelled but I really couldn't believe how bad it was...

I hated that there was a monthly limit, I watched two pretty quickly just to find out I wouldn't get my next movie for a few weeks. Luckily there is still a Blockbuster near me so I just did exchanges there, pretty good way to see new releases.

I actually canceled my 6 month trial early. I was getting sick of even looking at it. Within the 5 months I had it, I received 2 games, one of which was scratched to the point that it was unplayable. I had 90% of every Xbox and PS3 game they had in my queue but yet I never received shit. Horrible service.

If they are going to offer all these free trials, you'd think they'd make sure they have enough supply to make everyone on the trial happy. Otherwise, why would they pay end up paying for a service that they were unsatisfied with?

This is why Blockbuster is burning to the ground.

Careful about cancelling too soon (I did it because a Blu-ray was too scratched to play properly...unacceptable)...even with a few days left on your account as they say (enough time to receive and return a DVD), they won't ship DVDs.
1 John 1:7,9
But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

Is it just me or did Blockbuster try to hide the two ".." from plain view?

I can't scroll down past the "See Terms and Conditions for the above plans..." but if I hover my mouse below where the two dots "should" be, I can click on it. They got pretty clever. 8-)

Thanks for the heads up anyway!

Can anyone that has actually gotten games mailed to them in last several months tell me how they did it?
I had around 100 Xbox 360 titles in my Que and never got sent one in three months.
First none would ever say Available.Then if I put a dvd in my Que they would send those instead of any games.Then if I put no dvds in my Que they would just let 3 slots stay empty for weeks.
Thanks

Unfortunately, it is completely random. I have had Syndicate on my list ever since October and it finally came earlier this month. It sucks but that's the way the world (of Blockbuster) turns

Yeah, but RedBox has like 4 things available. I mean, I'm getting old stuff from BBV that Netflix doesn't even have. There's no way Redbox would have this. Redbox is good, I guess (never used it though I did browse their selection), for brand new, new release type stuff but pretty useless for older things.

What I've been getting from BBV is OOP DVDs that I can't even buy for less than $60+. So the free trial was nice for that even though they never sent me more than 2 per month. And even with 2 per month and paying $9.99, I might do a few more months to get the rest of what I wanted. But I'm definitely not keeping this long-term unless they step up the mailings once I'm actually paying (and I did get charged the other day so I am paying now).

Usually, that limit 2 per month plan is only available if you try to cancel your account (it's a "win you back" plan that is available for $4.99 per month). I'm sure since you're on the "regular" 1-disc out plan, they should ship you however many you want with unlimited exchanges (definitely look for the unlimited exchanges to know you have the regular plan)

Where did you have Syndicate in your Que?Did you keep it around #1 the whole time?
Also I assume you had dvds in your Que and on shipping speed did you choose speed or order?

Yeah, it does say unlimited now - definitely didn't say that before. In any case, I have 5 more things on my queue that I want and then I will probably cancel. I'm mailing back the first one since I got off the 6 month trial tomorrow. We'll see what the turnaround is like now.

It was actually number 2 on my queue and I also only had games in it. I tried putting the shipping speed for 5 days (order) and nothing happened in two weeks. Again it's just totally random. One time I was able to get Warhammer 40K Space Marine, Batman Arkham City AND LOTR War in the North come at the same time on a 3 disc out plan. I was utterly amazed that blockbuster came through like that (they all came out on blockbuster around the same time). There are a lot of people with free trials out there that are just clamoring for some games. I say give it out a month or two before inventory goes back to "normal" again.

For new games that aren't available yet put it at the top of the queue and the day they are you should get them. Borderlands 2 was available on the 1st. Assassin's Creed 3 will be available on February 12. If you have a free spot you should get it shipped on that day.

There is no normal. What's going on now is how it usually is. Blockbuster's closing at least 300 more stores too.

Sub was ending so I cancelled this garbage. They said I have 1 month from accounts exp. date to return my game I have out before getting charged. No hurry then for me... :)

My reason for canceling was you closed every store in my area and replaced it with 1 Redbox wanna be kiosk. Thanks

Whats funny is I thought what you said would work for me and it didn't.
I had Borderlands 2 for both systems and got nothing.I also tried it for 8 other games that were released in the last 3 months.They all would say available on release day and nothing for me.

You are correct that the games being all out are because everyone in the country in taking part in the free subs going on recently.
I had the membership back in April and May 2012 and it was not this bad at all.I got a lot of Xbox 360 games back then and a lot would say available.
I have a blockbuster like two blocks from me so for movie rentals I get decent value for the service.
