    It seems too good to be true . . . but . . . there it is.

    I signed up! Wow! It's like getting a refund on a lifetime of late fees!

    My next bill date shows up as July 2005 but states the following:
    "you will receive unlimited movies, up to 3 at one time plus two e-coupons/month for free in-store movie or game rentals.* At the end of one year, your membership will return to the rate offered to new members at that time."

    I just got this:
    We hope you enjoyed your recent period of free service from BLOCKBUSTER Onlineâ„¢. However, the membership plan offer you selected on May 11, 2005, was unauthorized and invalid.

    Therefore, we will be returning you to your previous membership plan effective July 12, 2005 -- the beginning of your next billing cycle. Again, you will NOT be charged for your most recent period of service. We apologize for any inconvenience.

    Yep, both Nate and I got our emails, too.

    Well, at least we got a couple of free months out of it :)

    Every time a movie is late or damaged I call and complain and they give me a few free weeks.
