Free game rental at Blockbuster

This is for the Xbox or GameCube

"From Dec. 1 through Jan. 31, participating U.S. Blockbuster stores will provide one free five-day game rental to customers who bring in a receipt from any retailer for the purchase of any new game console purchased during the promotional period. The game rented must be the format of the new game system on the receipt. "

Is this confirmed?? I read at the Xbox forum sites that Blockbuster employees don't know about the free rental promotion, so they didn't honor it.

It's posted on the blockbuster website so I guess that's confirmation.

The key phrase is "any new game console purchased during the promotional period." So if you bought your system before December 1 (like I did), you're out of luck.

That is wierd the article is dated 11/15/01. I may give it a shot anyway, the only thing they can do is say no.

Actually, that is what it says, but when I brought my gamecube receipt dated the 18th of november, they still gave me the free rental. Either the manager was clueless, or she didn't care.
