Blockbuster is Giving Away Free Batteries on Christmas Day

Posted Tue Dec 20, 2011 at 11:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

You can pick up two packs of batteries and grab additional packs for 99 cents each.

Let's set the scene. It's Christmas morning back when you were a kid and you wake up to a glut of presents from Santa. You excitedly tear open the box to reveal a Game Boy or a toy train that really lights up, but your happiness is dashed the moment you realize that there aren't any spare batteries in the house.

This year, Blockbuster has your back. If you swing into a Blockbuster location on Christmas Day - they open at noon, by the way - you can get two packs of AA or AAA batteries. Need more? Each pack after the first two runs just 99 cents.

Blockbuster has more deals of course, and is offering discounts on HDMI cables just in case those got forgotten too.
