Update on Blockbuster

Turns out that Blockbuster sends out extra DVD's from time to time to compensate for delays in shipping DVD's!

Per Hacking Netflix, one Blockbuster customer received an email from customer support saying:

You may have noticed a delay in the shipment of your DVDs early last week. And, by now, we hope you're enjoying the extra discs we sent you as a token of appreciation for your patience.

Once we identified and fixed the problem that caused your delay, we immediately sent you TWICE the number of titles you were to have received. That's right -- if you had two available slots in your list of Shipped Movies, you should have received four titles to make up for your delay.

Guess my extra DVD wasn't a mistake after all!
