I just signed up for an account with blockbuster, and put a handful of bargains in the basket
go to order them but they can't be delivered, click and collect only
put in the details for click and collect only for all the stores in the list to be unable to be used, and use home delivery only
they have always been useless cunts and now I know why I stopped using them in the first place, fucking wankers

Yup, they're pretty crap. I signed up for their rental service, took the ages to get around to sending me anything.

I thought BB went under a month or so back? Did it just downsize? If it can't even get shit like orders right I can see why it struggled.

I think they done a major downsize, only like 4-5 stores left in London now.

I was considering buying some cheap pre-owned dvds from there but after seeing this I might just stick to Cex.

I ordered something from CEX around lunchtime on Friday and it turned up the next morning. Very impressed. Delivery was £2.50 which isn't unreasonable and is less than it costs for me to drive into town and park to go and pick it up from the shop.

My local Blockbuster has gone down the pan, it's shite now. Very little stock and staff that don't seem to give a toss, although I'm not sure I blame them really

For the record I just tried to order Killzone 3 for £3.97. Unavailable for home delivery and unavailable in any shop within 35 miles of my postcode. I was annoyed enough to fire off a shitty email to Blockbuster which I can share with you all below.

Quote:
I am trying to order some games from your website that are at very good prices. However, I am unable to do so as they're not available for home delivery and no store within 35 miles of my address has them in stock. It just tells me to try Home Delivery instead, which I can't as the option is blanked out. More annoyingly the website says the game is in stock, which would appear to be a lie.

How, pray tell, am I to purchase these games from you if my local stores do not have them in and I can't have them delivered. If I was being cynical, I would assume it's a ploy to draw people in with cheap games and then hope they buy something from the, I would imagine, very limited range of things you do actually have. As a test, I tried using one of your London stores to order from, thinking they would have a greater range of products and not one of them has it available either.

I'm intrigued as to whether the ASA would be interested as you appear to be advertising a product at a good price that you have no intention of delivering

For the record, I will not be bothering to try again. The last time I tried to buy anything your online system refused to authorise any of my cards, all of which are were fine. This time you don't have any intention of actually getting the game to me, so I will take my custom elsewhere along with with recommending the same to any of my friends.
