Hack: Rent 4 DVDs from BlockBuster for $1.25

posted by MR WAVETHEORY at 9/09/2006 05:42:00 PM
$1.25 for 4 movies? No way! Wrong! I was at BlockBuster the other day and uncovered a way to rent 4 DVDs for $1.25! The best part is you get to keep the DVDs for up to 30 days. Now listen carefully. BlockBuster is currently promoting a deal where you can buy 4 DVDs for $20. However, in the fine print, BlockBuster says:

"If customers later decide they don't want to own the movie or game, they can return the product within 30 days, and Blockbuster Inc will reverse the sale and only charge a minimal restocking fee of $1.25."
I rented 4 movies, watched them, and returned them for $1.25. There are several reasons why I like this better than NetFlix.

1) I found this to be a pretty good deal because when I want to watch DVDs, I don't have the patience to wait for NetFlix. I hate waiting for NetFlix. It takes forever and you don't know whether you'll get your movies.

2) I only rent movies occasionally so I don't like paying $5.99 per month for NetFlix. For $1.25, I get to go into the store, pick up the DVDs, and get to keep them for up to 30 days. I like that.

3) There are plenty of movies to choose from at BlockBuster and they are almos always in stock.

For once, I think BlockBuster might have gotten things right! Now go and get your 4 DVD rentals for $1.25.

Hey--Look at Costco's return policy; you can also "rent" stuff there pretty cheaply. You can even pay with a credit card and get cash back! But good companies like this will lock you out of abusing their return policy very quickly! (Don't ruin it for the rest of us...)
