Blockbuster Express, you officially suck starting Nov. 8th…

I finally took the time to read this email from Blockbuster Express… and what it’s telling me is that unless I want to rent an old and dusty DVD (which in 99.9999% of all cases I don’t)  I might as well get my movies on Pay-Per-View?!?

#EpicFail. #YouJustRemovedAllIncentiveForDealingWithTheKiosk. #YourSelectionWasPoorAtBestAnyway.

” BLOCKBUSTER Express will launch an easy, $3-$2-$1 pricing structure on November 8, 2011:

For the first 28 days, new releases on DVD (our Hot Movies) will be $3 plus applicable tax. After 28 days, Recent Releases on DVD will be $2 plus applicable tax for the initial night. After 90 days all movies on DVD will be $1 plus applicable tax for the initial night.

Hot Movies and Recent Releases carry our In-Stock Guarantee.

Additional nights are only $1 plus applicable tax – even for Hot Movies, Recent Releases and Blu-ray movies.

For movies on Blu-ray, simply add $1 plus applicable tax to the first night’s rental charge.

With our $3-$2-$1 pricing structure, we are able to bring you the latest releases, with our In Stock Guarantee, as well as offer hundreds of movies for only $1.

When you want a new release, we’ve got the movie you’re looking for. Our Hot Movies and Recent Releases carry our In-Stock Guarantee. So, if that movie is out of stock when you want it, you’ll find instructions on the movie detail page on how to text us for a promo code for a discount off another rental.

Remember, we’ve still got hundreds of movies for $1. Sign-up for an online account at http://www.blockbusterexpress.com to get a $1 movie night on us.”

Seeing as how I didn’t buy my expensive TV and Blu-Ray player to play DVDs I believe that, for 99.9999% of all cases, you just lost a previously ridiculously loyal customer. Way to go guys!

Good people, I’m just like the next person. I don’t really have time to merge my online life with my "real" life. I’m got too many responsibilities. Maybe that will change after while, but I can’t see that happening right now.
 
Anyway, my point is PLEASE do NOT ask me to join your network or be friends if you haven’t taken the time to at least fill out your name and location in your Live details. I have no idea what your baby-mama or thuggish nickname means.
 
Nothing personal, and I’m sure you’re a great person, but really: how many people do you fully embrace if they walk up to you off the street and just say, "Let’s be best friends forever!"?
 
Good night.
