Blockbuster 'summer escape pass' allows unlimited rentals for $10/week


Sure, it started in June, but Blockbuster's "Summer Escape Pass" still seems like something worth mentioning. The promotion, which ends September 7, allows subscribers to rent unlimited games and movies for just $10 a week. The catch? It's only one item at a time.

So, a normal Blockbuster game rental is -- according to the spokesperson -- $8.99 (for five days?). So, if you live near a store and are just spending your summer getting through last winter's backlog, one could do that very efficiently with this deal.
