Signed up August 1st and as of today have received 20 movies by mail that I have exchanged in store for 20 free rentals. Plus still have 12 more days left on the pass this month.

Netflix. I was having big problems with Blockbuster sending me movies from way down on my list anyway (only 3 movies in my queue when I canceled were listed as "available.")

I'm currently on the 4 out at a time plan so I'm not sure what my pricing's going to be like. I'm in my last month of a 50% discount due to not being shipped movies for weeks at a time. My next billing date is in the beginning of next month so I'll see what they offer me. I don't intend to keep the Total Access going because I very rarely set foot in the store.

Since BB CS has confirmed to me that I will continue to get 3 out for $17.99 a month, I'm going to sit tight and see what happens.

Cancel. I don't anticipate renting enough in the future.

I was at the $10 plan and usualy ended up seeing 2 movies/week. I will move over to netflix and see if their turnaround is faster than bb for me.

I think I may go to Netflix...I really liked my free game coupon, the in-store exchange is nice, but my store does not carry Blu-Ray at all, so that is a major bummer to me.

I am going to Netflix. I've never set foot in B&M the whole time I have my BB account. I am fed up with their website. Right now I cannot edit my queue or delete movies from my queue on their website. I have tried three different computers two different browsers and e-mailing their customer service (who are clueless and only copy and paste replies). I signed up for a free month of netflix and I really like how user friendly their website is.

I hate Blockbuster, always have, always will. I have had Netflix since it came out and I have never been disappointed. The turnaround is quick, when I mail something in I get a new movie a day and a half later, this is usually consistent unless the local branch doesn't have the title (usually some obscure foreign film).
