How Can I Return Something At Blockbuster Without A Receipt?From Other - Electronics Forum:
How can I return something at blockbuster without a receipt? I had a friend of mine buy iron man for me from blockbuster today, but he accidentally got the DVD of it instead of the blu-ray version. So, I went on down to blockbuster to return it, but didn't have the receipt and they wouldn't exchange it or give me a refund. It is completely unopened and has the little stickers and everything. Is there any way I can work this out, or am I just screwed? I did tell them it was a gift, but they said it was against their policy or something.
Answer: Did you tell them it was a gift? Because they should be able to exchange it. If the product doesn't state Blockbuster on it anywhere, take it to a local store (Target, Best Buy, Wilmar...) and return it. Hope this helps!
How Much Does It Cost To Buy A Game At Blockbuster?From Video & On line Games Forum:
How much does it cost to buy a game at blockbuster? I got a $30 gift card for blockbuster from a friend, and have a lot of money. I really don't go to Blockbuster and I don't want to rent a game. So can you buy a game? I wouldn't mind getting fall out 3 or madden 09. How much will it cost, and will it come with the box case, or blockbuster case? Thanks!
Answer: Most Blockbuster outlets sell both new and used video games and videos. With only $30, you will probably be buying their used discs, which will vary from store to store depending on what they are decommissioning. Open the phone book and find out where your nearest outlets are and call each one to hear what is available right now. Don't expect the original case...usually they keep them for display purposes. Good luck on getting the game you wish for at a price you can afford.

How Is Blockbuster Still In Business, When Basically Everything Is Pirated On The Internet?From Corporations Forum:
How is Blockbuster still in business, when basically everything is pirated on the internet? I'm not a pi rater, or a blockbuster-hater, I used to always go to blockbuster! Till it moved on our side. But seriously, Movies, Games [PC & Consoles] are cracked, pirated, and on the Internet for free. So how is Blockbuster still alive.
Answer: I know you'll find this hard to believe, but only about 15% of the "average" citizens are computer literate enough to download, share, or pirate files on their computers. Most people are lucky if they can open and read their e-mail. They say too for every house that has a computer there are still 2 households that do not have one. That leaves a lot of folks who still need Blockbuster to be in business. The Blockbuster near my house stays packed all the time. Go figure!

What Type Of Drug Test Does Blockbuster Use?From Corporations Forum:
What type of drug test does blockbuster use? I have an interview with Blockbuster in Oregon on Thursday and I think I have a good chance at getting the job. The only problem is I hear that Blockbuster hair tests. I very rarely smoke but I have in the last month and that would show up on the drug test if it was a hair test. Do they hair test or piss test or even test at all. Please help!
Answer: Blockbuster has filed for bankruptcy numerous times in the past three years. Even with the Dish Network acquisition of company, they are still going under. I don't know if you'd WANT to work for a place that is a sinking ship. But, either way, a follicle test is extremely expensive to do, in comparison to a urine test. It usually runs about $800, compared to $80 for a urine test. They do have home tests, but they are no where near as accurate, and most companies do not use them. I can't see them shelling out that kind of money, with the financial problems that they have, for a drug screen on potential employees. Either way, if they did, it would show up.
How Do I Start A Movie Rental Service Like Blockbuster?From Movies Forum:
How do I start a Movie Rental service like Blockbuster? Hi: to build a company similar to Blockbuster or Net flicks what are the steps needed to distribute films legally? Thanks!
Answer: I dunno really about all that but I know that you can purchase the Red box kiosks and stuff cause they are a franchise and they load the movies and everything for you, you just purchase the box and put it at a location. That is probably your best best because there is really no market right now for rental stores, Movie Gallery/Hollywood Video is on its way out and I'm sure Blockbuster is gonna be gone too, I thought about doing the red box thing especially with video games and blares its very lucrative check this site out it tells how to get a redbox http://www.ehow.com/how_5135210_buy-redbox.html

How Many Copies Of Each Video Game Does Each Blockbuster Store Stock?From Video & On line Games Forum:
How many copies of each video game does each Blockbuster store stock? I am emailing a complaint to Blockbuster over the fact that my local Blockbuster store never has games in stock. My city has well over 22,000 people and it seems Blockbuster only has 2-3 copies of each game. Is this the same at all stores?
Answer: Depends on the store, the game and the platform. My blockbuster, in a city with just over 60,000 people in the area, doesn't have any blue-ray discs yet... PS3 games most titles only have 1-3 copies of each. 360 games 2-4 copies of each game, but that depends on the game, some are just 1 copy of a particular game.
