    I was at blockbuster returning crouching tiger previously viewed and traded it in for fast and the furious previously viewed. It's only $9.99, so why not. You've got 30 days to return it if you don't like it.

    I picked up American Pie 2 for 9.99 as well. Just received an email from Hollywood Video saying they are selling previously viewed DVD's for 9.99, but not all stores participate in this deal.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but Jon.... aren't you saying you rent it for 30 days for free?

    Don't know if that's really a bargain or a rip off. =)

    I haven't abused the policy. Chicken Run had a messed up menu and crouching tiger stopped at a certain chapter. Fast and the furious is definitely a keeper though.

    Sorry if I misunderstood you.

    I have bought three or four PVDs at Blockbuster with no problems even though they had minor scratches. However, when I bought The Score recently, they coated the disc with a Blockbuster sealent and the box is different than the standard one. I guess this isn't that big of deal, but something that just bugs me a little. But, for the price I got it at, I couldn't turn it down.

    Even www.half.com sells brand new DVDs and VHS for less. I bought two VHS. They were good. You may also use the following 'New Customer' coupons to get discount for the first time:
    $5.00 off on $25.00 purchase -- Use Coupon Code: WHENU25
    $10.00 off on $40.00 purchase -- Use Coupon Code: CAPITAL22

    Have a nice day!

    Cool. It was the "I kept returning it for something else" part that was confusing. [​IMG]

    Interesting Dave, I've never seen that. My Fast and Furious doesn't have that. I even peeled off the sticker the put over the UPC, that even bugged me. =)

    I would have never taken the disc with stickers all over the top side.

    Sounds like Jon has a bad dvd player or just bad luck.
