Blockbuster has been annoyingly advertising their "No More Late Fees" policy ad naseum.
Too bad it’s a lie. Yes, they’ve changed their policy but they still charge a late fee. Only now they call it a restocking fee. Whatever.
You rent a movie or game. After 8 days of not returning it, Blockbuster charges your credit card the full cost of purchase. You now own the movie or game. You still have a 30 day grace period to return the movie for a refund, but they do charge you a nominal (I think it’s $1.50) restocking fee.
Isn’t the restocking fee just another name for late fee?
I have no problem with the new policy, in fact I think it’s smart. I just don’t the misleading terminology.
But I don’t care. I don’t rent anymore from Blockbuster anyway.
Here in Charlottetown, it’s That’s Entertainment all the way!
