Cancel Blockbuster, get a deal!

From the Netflix_operations_discuss Yahoo! group, one user states that if you cancel your Blockbuster Online subscription, they [Blockbuster] will offer you a deal of six months for $16.99 per month.


  1. Is there any proof of this claim? Has Netflix said anything like that? I find it a bit hard to believe.

  2. It's Blockbuster, not Netflix. I don't have "proof", just one users statement that it happened to him.

  3. It also happened to me FWIW. I think CBS Marketwatch even mentioned it in a public article to which Blockbuster replied "this is not our standard offer [read: we don't want everyone gaming our system]".
