    Actually I just found out the deal varies by location.

    $24.99/10 rentals
    $29.99/10 rentals
    $29.99/5 rentals
    $32.99/7 rentals

    Are a few examples I've heard of.

    Also the Blockbuster computer system has a listing for a 7-week Pirates card @ $26.99, so that could be a possibility for after Nemo.

    For my area, (San Jose, CA) after polling the three around my house, they were all $29.99/7 rentals. I'll pass on this one and hope for Nemo to come in at about $12-13 at B&Ms.

    I think he meant Spider-Man.

    Blockbuster also did rental cards on:

    Shrek
    Fellowship of the Ring
    Monsters, Inc.
    Spider-Man
    How to Lose a Guy
    Two Towers

    FOTR and Spider-Man were really good deals, and those rentals counted toward your free rentals. I didn't do any of the others b/c of either not being interested in the titles or the lame scaling back of the deals.

    $29.99 for 7 Rentals in my area.

    No deal.

    I was on the fence at $29/10.

    I'll remember the good old days ($25/10) very fondly.

    $29.99 for 7 rentals isn't really that bad.

    Assuming that you will, in fact, rent all 7 movies, at a total cost of $3.98, that works out to $27.86. Which gives you a copy of Finding Nemo for just a few dollars.

    Jimmy!

    Yes, but the 10 was much better. The way I looked at it was 10 reduced price rentals, (let's say the 29.99/10 card), with tax each rental came to $3.17. And then I got Spider-Man for free. And even better when it was 24.99/10, like FOTR, $2.65 per rental, tax included, and FOTR for free.

    Not really. If you consider their over priced rental fee, then it might make a good deal but I'm a heavy Netflix renter and at ~$1.50 a rental (plus choice and widescreen) Blockbuster can't compete.

    If they want my business, they need to do much better than $29/7.

    What infuriates me more, they offer better deals at different Blockbuster. Just offer the same deal everywhere!

    I'll pick up Nemo for $15 and stay happy with Netflix.

    $33.99 for 7 rentals out here. Considering the dvd will be around $20 in the stores, you can say 7 rentals for $14.

    Netflix is a lot of fun...

    You can rent so many different things... Tv box sets, older movies, etc. that you cant even find at a local video store...

    I think the deal is a good one IF they would allow you to rent the movies whenever you wanted - say 7 rentals within 7 weeks.

    I find myself, due to work and family, not able to use about half of the weeks. On the other hand, there are weekends when I would watch three movies.
