Blockbuster Video-Albuquerque NM Complaint - Beware the late fees scam

Review by sabinestroehm on 2006-02-22
I knew the "no more late fees" scam was just that, a scam, BUT, I had no idea that when I turned a movie in 2 days late I'd be sent to a credit agency! I just received a letter from "credit protection asssociation L.P" collecting 12 bucks from me.

I was in a blockbuster tonight. Place was dead. We were the only ones in there for the 20 minutes we browsed movies. You could just feel the life draining from their business. Netflix and such are taking over the DVD world. Blockbuster is behind the times and soon to be out the door.

LOL. I guess if you can not read you would need a movie. Any large company will have the rules posted for any promotion they advertise. What you have told us is not possible. BB lets you re-rent the item for the same amount of time as when you first took it out. 7 day gives you 14. Collections is not in the picture for about 3 to 6 months after the fee goes onto the account. 2 days late? come on.

Wrong. It was explained very clearly to me AND it was in written all over the store, if you cared to look. You get a whole week past the due date! They don't charge anything until you have it past that. Also, the new thing they're doing with their online rental thing is cool - where you get lots of free rentals in stores also. Netflix can't touch it. ^_^
