1 year free DVD rentals from Blockbuster online

Just saw this on another site and didn't see it here. Not sure if it's been posted and removed or not posted at all so i figure i'll let you guys know about it.

[quote]While it's not a deal that is usually posted here, we think it's a great
offer and something worth mentioning. Blockbuster online is offering a 13 month free membership to their online DVD rental service.

To take advantage of this offer, register at the link below and enter promo
code "friends" for one free month, then click the second link
below for the free year!

If you have the above information, does that mean it worked?

Wow! Thank you SO much OP!

It worked for me.

Says: Next Billing Date: 05/12/2006

Wonder if this'll get taken away when too many people sign up?

That is what mine says to, but I also don't know if it is correct.

I missed it. I get 1 month free instead of 1 year free. I am cancelling now.

It works, but I had to wait about 15 minutes before I went to the second link. If you've already gone to the second link and your billing date is still not 2006, you might try waiting a few minutes then trying the second link again.

If it gives you the extra year the first time, I wouldn't suggest trying it a second, but for those who it didn't work for, did you try the link a second time?

Yeah, I fully expect to go back and check the next billing date tomorrow and it will be changed to 2005 again. You never know though...

Mine says:
Online Membership: 4 week Free Trial $0.00 for 1 month + tax

but my next billing date is 5/19/2006...

Is this a bug in their system or something? Why would they give a 1 year trial?

It also said something about downgrading my membership when I first clicked on that bottom link...

Worked for me.

Although the next due date is 5/11/2006, my Online Membership still reads: 4 week Free Trial $0.00 for 1 month + tax

Made a soft/hard copy for my records.

Dang, I think because I already did their free trial a few months back, I'm not eligible for this thing. SHOOT!

Do you think it would work if I created a new account under a different name, but with the same address?
