    I have been looking for a few older titles on DVD and thought I'd take advantage of Blockbusters buy 2 get 1 free on Previously Viewed DVD's.

    1. All the PV's were now $14.98 or $16.98, where they used to be $9.98 each. So BB isn't doing anyone any f*cking favors.

    2. Then I could not find even one of the titles I had in mind, Mickey Blue Eyes, U-571, Long Kiss Goodnight, What Women Want or The Wedding Planner.

    My local blockbuster still has lots of 9.99 PV. Unfortunately most of the titles are always going to be newer movies. They sell what they have extras of and that normally is the newer titles that are no longer renting at a fast pace. Anything over about six months old you will be lucky to find used. That is just the way it works, it is not a scam.
