Blockbuster Has Another New Rental Scheme

Posted Fri Oct 28, 2011 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

This time it's an in-store subscription plan for games, DVDs and Blu-rays.

The folks at Blockbuster are doing whatever they can to fire up business, and part of that effort is to try out new rental programs until they find something that clicks. The latest iteration actually sounds like a pretty sweet deal if you're not averse to swinging by the store to get your discs.

The rental plan is called Blockbuster Combo Pass and it allows you to rent one DVD, Blu-ray or videogame at a time with no due dates for $14.99 a month. You'll also get a special rate of $7.49 for the first month.

Of course, things get a little confusing when you try and decide between Blockbuster Total Access and Blockbuster Combo Pass. It seems like Total Access - the disc by mail service that allows in-store exchanges - would be a better deal for those just getting movies, but Combo Pass is the way to go for gamers who have to pay extra to trade in for games with Total Access.
