Blockbuster Online to speed up shipping

i did a search, and couldn't find the past thread. maybe the mods can merge all the blockbuster online threads together.

watch out netflix, blockbuster signed a new deal with USPS. Now when the post office scans the DVD you put in the mail, blockbuster will be notified and send out your next DVD in the queue before receiving the old one.

If this is true, then I'd imagine Netflix would follow suit before too long. This would give BBVOnline a huge advantage, although it would probably cost them more in the long run.

I've noticed a speedup from it already. We'll see how my first month goes.

I'm on my second week of a second free rental month and all I can say is Blockbuster is getting slower. It's taking about 3 to 4 days to get the next DVD from my queue, while the previous month was 2 to 3 days. At first it did appear they were sending out the next DVD quicker but it still wasn't getting in my mail box any faster. Now it appears they are slowing down even more as the month progresses.

I agree. Since they send out that email saying they were going to improve their service, its gotten worst.

I have to agree now. They do seem to have gotten worse since that email.
