I have a blockbuster about 5 mins from me can I just sign up for this 2 month trial online and just pick up 3 movies/games with a member number or is just for exchanging?

What's the deal with no game having a status under "Availability"?


That just changed last night. Before that they did have the status in that column. Don't know what changed.

Also a question....
Does blockbuster handle returns the same way netflix does in that they see you have started the return process via the USPS and they send out the next title immediately or do they wait until they receive the returned title before sending out the next one.

Just got Shadows of the Damned in the mail today, it's actually not scratched and in pretty good condition. The shipping time was pretty fast as well took 2 days to get here.

I didn't know Netflix actually did that, but I've always been a next-day-each-way person so it wouldn't matter. Blockbuster does not, but if you have a Blockbuster near you and you don't want to do the in-store exchange, you can have the rentals "checked in" at the store. It immediately frees up a queue slot, and in theory you should have a new disc sent to you the next day. It doesn't always happen because Blockbuster has terrible title availability.

You should take the online rentals in store and have them scanned in. It takes seconds. Don't just put them in the dropbox. Otherwise they don't bother to scan those in and just make a post office drop once a week even though the mail comes daily. I used to do that because almost everything I rented from Blockbuster Online is not carried in stores and I get new movies from my library.

I'm sure this has been asked already, but is there an in store pickup option? Or is this strictly online.

There's a blockbuster KINDA near me, it's at least close to my gym, so I can go before I work out. I'm assuming the in-store exchange is probably only on movies and not games.

The service looks worse than it did a few years ago when I was using it. No free streaming is lame, but I already have netflix, so whatever.

What annoys me is SOME movie titles will say "Add to Queue" or whatever, and I'll add them, then go to the Queue and they'll say "Unavailable." WTF?! If it's unavailable, they should remove the "Add" button, or remove the whole entry.

You can exchange games in-store.

My Queue isn't even showing availability. The column is there but none of the games have anything listed.

You can exchange in-store, true, but there are restrictions. You can only exchange a game you've rented online for a 99 cent in-store game (as opposed to the newer, $2 and $3 games).

Here's a decent bonus I just was told from a csr after canceling: I have 30 days to return the games I have from date of cancelation. Gives me time to beat the ones I have before returning.

I would be careful of what someone says on the phone to you versus what is written on the website so they don't charge you for it.

As stated in the terms and conditions of your Blockbuster By Mail subscription, all outstanding rentals must be received by Blockbuster no later than ten (10) days after your inactivation date.

Since when did they start charging 3 dollars a game? Last time I rented from Blockbuster I paid over 8 dollars.

Actually the last time I had a blockbuster subscription was around January and I can confirm that this is the case. You essentially have an extra 30 days to finish your game after you cancel. They'll send you an email and tell you when is the last day for you to return it without being charged.

Unfortunately all the blockbusters in my city went out of business so I don't have that option.

Just got my question answered though. I sent a movie back yesterday and the next one shipped out today. Damn fast.

Yep, this was the case when my local BB closed up and we signed up for multiple "free trials" after being encouraged by the employees. The promo was that you got to keep any 2 used movies off the shelf - including blu's in addition to the free 30 day trial.

Upon cancelling, I promptly returned 1 game exactly 25 days after my membership was closed without any problems.

Thanks man. I just noticed that. I can rent games in store as well right? I'm going to hit them up before I head to work tomorrow. They're right around the corner.

Edit: Asura's Wrath is in stock. Definitely picking that one up tomorrow. This will be a great deal for my girlfriend and I since we love playing games and watching movies. There's three Blockbuster locations around us. Thanks again OP!:applause:

So I can't rent a game without having one to turn in? That's lame. I'm going to check, and see what they say.

Deal is alive just did it. It's two small dots at the bottom left page all the way at the bottom.

So there's no way to rent new releases in stores?
