    how the fuck can there be no late fees, and if you want to keep the movie an extra day or two... and just keep keeping it at the house, they'd never have anything in stock to rent....

    anyone have any ideas as to how the fuck they plan on doing this and keeping some videos in the store?

    you could rent a movie for 2 years and be like, sorry, i kept wanting to keep it a couple more days...

    :lol:

    i wonder what the catch is...

    Its all about mass production I guess, they're tryin to compete with everyone else so they have to find new ways of being "the best"....

    i had heard that they got smacked with a class action lawsuit for charging late fees when they were not applicable. i don't think that is why they dropped the fees. they suck anyway cause their selection is terrible.

    i dont see how they could be doing this without some sort of catch, if there isnt a catch then theyre bascilly selling people videogames and videos for $5 or less.

    exactly... doesnt make sense.

    you could just keep shit forever. unless theyre just planning on extending the time you have to rent the shit... like 2 weeks tops.

    IF YOU RENT A MOVIE, IT STILL HAS A DUE DATE. EITHER THE 2-DAY RENTAL OR THE 7-DAY RENTAL. HOWEVR, IF YOU "NEED A DAY OR TWO TO RETURN THE MOVIE AFTER ITS DUE DATE" YOU WILL NOT BE CHARGED A LATE FEE. IN ACTUALITY, YOU CAN KEEP THE MOVIE FOR 5 DAYS, AND ON THE 6TH OR 7TH DAY YOU WILL BE SOLD THE MOVIE, AND BECOME THE PROUD OWNER OF THAT MOVIE. HOWEVER, YOU HAVE LIKE A 30-DAY PERIOD AFTER THAT TO RETURN THE MOVIE, AND GET A REFUND.
