As you know, it’s been quite an eventful time for BLOCKBUSTER. However, we have recently added a load of new features to Blockbuster By Post that we’d like to let you know about.
10% OFF EVERYTHING YOU BUY
As a Blockbuster By Post subscriber you can now get 10% off everything you buy all the time at our BLOCKBUSTER® Marketplace.
There are thousands of titles to choose from and you can make great savings when compared to buying new. You don’t need a code, to paraphrase Liam Neeson in ‘Taken’, we know you are! All you need to do is login to the Blockbuster Marketplace using your Blockbuster By Post details and everything you add to your basket will get 10% off.
Looking for a movie at the last minute? You can now return the discs you rent online at Blockbuster By Post for movies from your local BLOCKBUSTER store. 1,000s movies are FREE, everything else is HALF PRICE!
You don’t even have to exchange a disc to get half price movie rentals. You can get these on any movie in your local BLOCKBUSTER store.
All you need to do is link up your Blockbuster By Post account with your in-store rental account, wait 24 hours. Then whenever a movie is scanned through your in-store rental account, it will come back at the discounted rate.
Remember you can Click & Collect as well – GUARANTEE your Blockbuster night!
And while you may have heard of our recently announced store closures, there are still hundreds of BLOCKBUSTER stores left across the UK that are trading and open as normal.
GUARANTEE WHAT YOU GET
We launched Top Ticket a few years ago, but we completely admit that we perhaps don’t tell enough people about this awesome service.
At Blockbuster By Post, we are the only service to offer you a numbered list so you can tell us exactly what you want first. But there are times where we fail to give you your top choice – and for this we are very sorry. Like all online rental services, it all depends on the availability in the warehouse when your discs arrive back to swap for more.
However with Blockbuster By Post, life doesn’t have to be like a box of chocolates – you can GUARANTEE what you get next. Every month, we give you Top Ticket credits that you can use as part of your service.
If you choose a movie or game as your Top Ticket, we will send this to you next. Not only that, but if you already have all your discs out on rent, we will send your Top Ticket as an extra disc, meaning that it is a great way to get an extra movie 1 or 2 times a month.
Over 90% of our catalogue is available on Top Ticket right now.
Although it’s been a tough few months for BLOCKBUSTER as a whole, we continue to have movies on Blu-ray and DVD ahead of them being available at LOVEFiLM or other services. Recent releases include ‘Anna Kerenina’ and ‘Savages’, however future titles include ‘Pitch Perfect’ and ‘Les Miserables’.
60 days or more ahead of LOVEFiLM’s postal service, and up to a year ahead of subscription streaming services.
We also continue to have Blockbuster Exclusives, movies that are available to rent at BLOCKBUSTER both online and in-store before being available to rent or buy anywhere else.
One of the best kept secrets of our service is our Film Finder feature. Tell us what you like, and we’ll do the rest. Get personalised suggestions here –
AN EXTRA MOVIE ON US!
We appreciate all your support over the past few weeks, we have lots of cool things that you’re working on that will really transform your Blockbuster By Post service.
However in the meantime, if you log in to your Blockbuster By Post account, you will find that we have added an extra eCoupon to your account, that you can print or show (on our iPhone app), for you to get a FREE rental in your local BLOCKBUSTER store.
DOWNLOAD THE BLOCKBUSTER MAGAZINE
We’ve just published today, the latest issue of the FREE BLOCKBUSTER® Magazine. It’s FREE and available to download for iPad, Android and Kindle devices.
We’d really recommend you download it – if nothing else, it’s cool and has 50 odd trailers with links to the blockbuster.co.uk website. You can add the titles featured onto your Blockbuster By Post rental list and we’ll send them to you when they come out.
Thanks for your time reading this post. I just wanted to update you all to show you that things are still moving forwards, we are still around and working hard to give you the best online rental service possible. We’ll be in touch soon with an update about more new features.
That’ll do pig, that’ll do.
