Bastards!

I got a letter in the mail saying I owe them $8.51 in late fee's. :|

Apparently when they say you have until Saturday @ midnight they actually mean Friday before 12AM and me turning it in before noon on that Saturday gets me charged more than I paid for the videos in the first place.

:disgust:

i don't like their system of not tracking/no giving you a way to prove that you turned something in/when you turned it in

Well I know that Blockbuster hasn't allowed the midnight thing in a while. All their return times are before Noon on the due date.

It sucks that blockbuster gives you no way to prove jackcrap about when you actually returned a video

yeah no offense, but since when do you have until midnight to turn your rentals in? It's been noon for a long time...as far as them telling you it's due on a different date than it actually was, tell them that, and they should let it slide. It's happened to me before

Get netflix.

I've boycotted BB personally, and haven't stepped into a store in almost a year.
If more people would do so they'd fix their problems.

Do they create any type of bonus/free rentals the way Blockbuster does.

I know the blockbuster has become more competetive due to Hollywood; has Hollywood responded to the competition?
