    Print this and get a movie for $.99
    I used one last evening for the new Matrix release.

    Can you rent a movie for each day until 4/11/04? Or just one movie per membership.

    The fine print says "this barcode only permits redemption of this coupon one time on one account."

    So, unless you have multiple accounts, or find coupons with different barcodes, I'd assume the computer will know you've already used the coupon.

    I'm just wondering if this is one of those cases where you print the electronic coupon, take it in, and the clueless staff says it's invalid because "it's a copy"? [​IMG]

    Nope it works just fine, I used it to get Matrix Revolutions last evening, they just scanned the bar-code on the coupon, my coupon was a computer printout from my standard B&W laser printer.
    It’s not a windfall but it is 75% off the new releases [​IMG]
    I will be checking tonight to see if by chance it can be used twice.
    Sometimes they can because the software to prohibit this is more trouble/cost then worth
    to keep track of multiple use.

    I wonder if they are expecting very low volume of rentals for Easter Weekend and did this to pick up their volume.

    I get a coupon like this and others like "rent one get one free" in the mail once a month from my local BB. Does anyone else get these. The flyer usually will have one "99 cent rental" and one "rent one get one free" in it.

    I was just wondering if this is something that my local BB does or is it throughout the chain.

    We also get those coupons; I don't even remember when the last time was that we paid regular price for a rental at blockbuster. [​IMG]
    Since they will also accept competitor coupons, we clip and save all of them and just use them at blockbuster.
    Even from the local mom & pop shops.
    Be sure to check the back of those food market store receipts.

    Jerry - I didn't know about them accepting other rental coupons, thanks for the tip.

    I get the flyer in the mail but it only has free rentals for "non-new releases" and the bozos at BB consider a movie a new release for an entire year from street date - how lame.

    The coupon is being tracked via account.
    So if you used it once they will know.
    If you have a nice BB clerk they will override
    the system with a scan from their stock discounts
    as she did for my second attempt to use this coupon [​IMG]

    John
    Yes our local BB's also take competitor coupons.

    I used one at Blockbuster, and then used another one at Hollywood Video (they agreed to take their competitor coupon since it was just one rental), so it worked out for me.

    I'm a Blockbuster Rewards member and I also get those coupon deals. I have 4 of them right now and sometimes get them emailed to me.

    Thanks Jerry! Can you use this coupon, if you've already used the last one?

    I don't know yet.
    I shall find out tomorrow evening, maybe
    someone else will give it a shot and advise.
    I think you can use this one even if you used the last as the bar-code sku has new numbers.
    New sku= 5600A900079
    Old sku= 5600A600079

    I would think you could. They have 2 completely different periods of valid dates.

    Amazing; these coupons have made me go back to BB for the first time in many, many months.

    Up until last weekend, I don't think I'd been there since September. I'm still going to try to give Movie Gallery some 99 cent business tonight though. I've never been insulted by a Movie Gallery employee.

    Would be sweet if the buy 2, get 2 free previously viewed deal was still going at MG, but I'm not sure.
