    I thought they would have done this with Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. I got my 2 Disc Fellowship of the ring with the Blockbuster Rental Card Deal, but it was $25 and 10 weeks

    They may still do it. When is ROTK being released? I got the first 2 LOTRs that way too.

    They seem to do this card for all the bigger releases. I know Spiderman, Nemo and a few other bigger titles all got this treatment too. ROTK will probably be offered with this deal.

    As a former Blockbuster grunt, I would often read the memos lying around. The amount of rentals and the cost for the cards varied in different markets and regions. They were trying to figure out how many they could get away with giving away and how much they could charge people. I think Spiderman was the big experiment. They tried out
    10 rentals for $30
    7 "" $25
    7 "" $27.99
    10 "" $25
    And I think some markets might have gotten 12 for $30. I think they finally concluded 7 for $25 is the way to go. At least in my area. By the way, Blockbuster is EVIL!!!

    Wow, only 5 posts before an "anti-Blockbuster" note. I actually thought it would hold out longer. [​IMG]
