Default Blockbuster Online

I thought it would be helpful to post some experiences I've recently had with Blockbuster Online. I signed up for it about a month ago and everything was going fine. I got my dvds and I brought them back to the store to get either a movie or a game. This was during the free trial. Once my free trial ended, the movies stopped coming. It took them 2 weeks to notice that I returned one of the movies I sent them. I tried to e-mail them, call them, everything and they still wouldn't respond, even though they claim to "respond in 2-4 hours". Then once it was returned, it'* been 4 days and they STILL HAVEN'T SENT IT OUT! I'm done with them and I thought I'd save you guys the trouble. Just go with netflix

same thing happens with netflix. they impose a "penalty" if you use their service more than they feel you should.

I just cancelled Netflix due to them taking too long. I'm gonna try the Blockbuster service and see if its any better. I've heard good things about it from others.
