A normal pricing product is NOT a deal. Thanks for the payment to WOOT/AMAZON though. Keep the lights on in the basement for you.

why do they keep coming back for more??

Why is this "featured"? It's crap to begin with even if it were free.

@conanthelibrarian: Evidently, in spite of the overwhelming negative voting (which I help with each time), they feel they're getting some positive exposure.

Please go away Blockbuster.

Every time this sale comes up because of the thumbnail.

Yes I know the colours are backwards but it doesn't stop from tricking me every time.

I will downvote every Blockbuster product I can find until they decide to allow their app on the android phones to not be mandatory (and then force updates upon us).

Honestly, I thought they were already out of business.

Go easy... Blockbuster in business means no monopoly for Netflix. Competition is a good thing.

Yes, but remember Blockbuster was the company that put all the mom and pop video shops out of business. I wouldn't mind seeing Blockbuster go belly up.

@lepiane: Kind of, but "competition" isn't what it used to be. It should be about keeping prices reasonable and offering excellent service due to the presence of other options. These days it's more like having to choose the (slightly) lesser of two evils. Is Microsoft better because of Apple? Is Wal-Mart better because of Target? Is eBay better because of Amazon? Maybe so, but not in any way I as a consumer am going to notice. It seems silly to keep a failing company afloat because it buffers us against abuse from another.

I have used both the Blockbuster and Netflix disc subscriptions. I am currently a Netflix customer, streaming only. But as far as disc services are concerned, I strongly preferred the Blockbuster option. The unlimited in store exchanges is really nice if you live near a Blockbuster store. Makes it much easier to get new release, and much easier to get a specific movie on a specific day if you are having a movie night with some friends. Because of in store exchanges I watched 2-3x more movies using Blockbuster's disc service than I did with Netflix's disc service. Streaming though, Netflix blows Blockbuster @Home (Dish Network exclusive) out of the water. @Home has a terrible streaming selection, even compared to Netflix, which can itself be less than exciting at times. Honestly, at $9.99 a month I am thinking of switching to the Blockbuster through the mail service and dumping Netflix. Plus Blockbuster gives you Blu-Ray and Game access at no additional charge.

@lepiane: Redbox and Amazon are both competition for Netfilx in different departments. The real hurdle for consumers is the legal system with copyrights and patents that limit who can offer products to the public.

While I agree it's not a deal in the sense that you can't get it any other day for the same price, if you already have Dish it's pretty nice addition. I think it gave me three Epix HD channels and a few others, all of which have some nice movies on them rather frequently.

actually was excited for this deal as i want to try out a few newly released video games. i deleted my account within minutes, however, after seeing the two games (released within the past two months) weren't available until OCTOBER on blockbuster. no thanks!
