Blockbuster Total Access – Free Trial Plus Cashback Promotion

July 9, 2008

Blockbuster Total Access has been running a free trial offer for their online movie rental service and is now offering a cash back promotion. Signup for a free trial of Total Access and setup PayPal as your billing option to receive the $10 cash back.

Total Access Free Trial Options
The one month trial of the online dvd rental service ended a while back but Blockbuster is still offering a two week free trial or a 50% discount off your first month. Typically I’d go with the two week free trial but the cash back promotion basically gives you one month of Total Access for free.  The first month is $9.99 but you get $10 cash back for setting up your account with PayPal.

Cashback Offer


You don’t need a promotion code to take advantage of the cash back offer. When you signup for the free trial, Blockbuster will ask you to enter your billing information. On the “Trial Confirmation” tab, make sure you select the PayPal option as shown in the picture so you qualify for the money. Your $10 will be deposited into your PayPal account after you’re finished signing up.

Saving Money on Movies
I’ve talked before about how online movie rental services can save you money on entertainment.  My wife and I really enjoy going to the movies but it keeps getting more expensive as the price of movie tickets, refreshments, and gas keeps going up.

Rather than drop a bundle at the movie theatre, we prefer to have the DVDs delivered to us in the mail.  We can watch multiple movies a month through a service like Blockbuster Total Access for much cheaper than the price of one theatre visit. Plus it works out better for our schedule anyhow, we don’t have to setup and pay for a babysitter for our son, we can just watch them once he’s in bed.

Free Trial Signup
Unfortunately the Blockbuster offer is only open to new customers but if you think you could save some money on entertainment with the online dvd rental service and aren’t already a member you can use the links below to signup for Total Access:

    I used to love Blockbuster – it was a great deal – until they raised the plan I had to $34 a month! So I quit – now I go to Red Box and rent them for $1 a day each… better for my budget 🙂
