BB total acess question

when you return a movie at the B&M to pick up another movie, can you pick up a new release, or only older releases (i.e. 1 week rentals)?

It can be any movie. Regular in-store policies will apply though...you rent a one night title, it's due back the next day.

dont forget about the 7 day "grace" period on all rentals. so if its a one night title, they are due back the 8th day.

My blockbuster doesn't even have one night titles. Minimum is 2 nights (or 9 if you're pushing the limit).

My blockbuster charges late fees on the titles i get when using the online trade ins. So if I get a movie, I can't be late with it.

This may be different with each store, so you should just ask.

Oh - and the trade ins do not work with games, only movies... but if you sign up you get one coupon a month for any title, game or movie...

Wow, they don't give you the grace period for movies you get through online trade ins? That definitely is not a universal policy.

I thought they recently upgraded even the weekly coupons, allowing you to use those on games? I've been too cautious to mess with my legacy two coupons a month, game or dvd policy...

BB doesn't issue weekly coupons anymore... just monthly.

i've only been on the program for 3 months - and i've only gotten the monthly coupons - dont know about prior to now.

There may be a stipulation somewhere in the terms of service, but i didnt read it closely. The grace period isnt really a problem for me cause i usually take the movies in the day after i get it. But thats just how I do it. Other people would do it different ways. But it is something that would be good to know going into it.

I look at it this way, I'm paying for 2 movies at a time... By the time the cycle ends, i'm actually getting 4 movies at a time, 2 of which can be brand spanking new releases without having to wait on them. On top of that, I get an added free movie/game a month. I can handle having to mind the due date as the only stipulation i really have to pay attention to.

Just my take on it...

I've been on BBO a little under a month. I don't really even use the store return since one is not that close.

But so far they've been pretty good about getting me new dvd's out when I return them.

I'm also testing netflix for another month or so. After that whichever performs best will be the one I keep.

blockbuster online is getting better and better.

i've paid for the subscription for a couple of months and also have gotten a few free trial offers when my subscription has lapsed for a few months.

this most recent time i got another 2 week free trial. they sent me 4 dvds instead of 3. i used my free in-store rental to rent a videogame and then cancelled my free-trial before my 2 weeks were up b/c i was going on vacation and i wanted to try out gameznflix.com. blockbuster gave me a month to return those 4 dvds i had out... i took them to my local blockbuster and exchanged them for new rentals w/ no problem, even tho my online account was cancelled. my receipt for the new rentals still mentions the grace period so no problem here.

Really? Hope that happens with my free trial. Not counting on it, I'll try it when mine ends. My last free trial was back in Aug then I got an email for another free trial. But that in-store return is slower than molasses. :P

don't wait for an e-mail, just go to the website, click on the free trial link and enter your old information. it should offer you a new free trial.
